Still around and still working on it when I can. I took on full time credits in school this semester, so I have no time now lol. Intake manifold is pieced together for the most part, I've been working on the hot side now. http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad246/odd_Ball_performance/Impulse2/manifab...

Bart, if you ever get to the point you want to try a different transmission, I still have my stock one sitting around. It's got over 100k on the clock, but as far as I knew it was in good order before it was pulled. I've never really shipped anything of that size for freight, but I'm sure I could fi...

Thanks for the update. I'm now thinking if they can't do the 20% under drive then I would like my money back. Would that be an unreasonable request? Nah, it's not unreasonable. I am sure I could sell the second one and make some of the money back on it. Or I can just rock a spare lol. I finally got...

Been busy as all can be the last few weeks, so no real progress. I have all of my aluminum flanges and bits in to start fabbing my intake. new intercooler, loads of pipe, etc. My proper Ron Davis radiator is on its way as well, so I can get the mounting all sorted. My exhaust flange is also done. No...

Yep, he solved his problem. Vacuum leak at the injectors because of the wrong type of o-ring.

I will call them tomorrow and talk to them again. I have heard of people having issues dealing with Paeco regarding this kind of stuff before. I will see what he says about it again.

Re the other stuff you have in hold for me, I don't mind waiting for the pulley so that everything can be shipped as one package. Were you able to negotiate my pulley to be made at the 20% underdrive rate? From what he said, this is essentially the size we are stuck with. He didn't really try to ex...

Also, if anybody has any advice for removing the front springs without a spring compressor, I am all ears. I am down to using some type of 2 way ratchet straps and a jack as my last options. I really need to get that front suspension taken apart.

The Spax are adjustable, and easier to get sadly. I had zero luck with even finding Bilsteins, and Koni's cost an arm and a leg. These were $680 to my door, which isn't that bad honestly. I can survive on Impulse alone! lol. Welcome distractions are welcome though, as it is somewhat hard to cuddle u...

Been a short time since an update. I haven't had a solid day to work on my car in a little while. Got a new part-time driving job so I can work less hours thanks to better wages. Finishing up tests in school and other various distractions of the female variety take up the rest. Still, I nearly have ...

Aye, the rear plate separates from the housing on the inside, and the housing pushes away from the body on the outside. It doesn't come apart smooth and easy though. I had to finagle mine around a bit to get them to come free, but otherwise it is pretty straight forward.

No, the only seal on my tail lights was the outer seal between the housing and the body. Did you remove the plastic section that the bulbs are inside of before trying to remove the bracket? On mine, you have to take that off in order for the bracket to come free. Also, on mine there are flexible met...

It's not that difficult really. First remove the light bulb panel from the housing assembly. There is a bracket on the back side of the lights that is held on by 10 small nuts (either 8 or 10mm, I can't remember off hand). remove all of those and the bracket should come free. From there just apply p...
