Hey Una,
Yeah the PNW-SDAC is mostly Portland types. I guess that there was a fair amount of drama/bitching too. I still occasionally post with them for tech advice. Typically I never get any replies. I don't think that your car was running last time I saw you. Are you using megasquirt on it? Was the swap very difficult?
Later,
Dlarue

It piggys in right behind the drivers seat. The car is pretty cool, but we're prepping for a new build. The new one will have the 450cc engine and a redesigned engine, as well as different gearing.

off topic: i am having probs reassembling my tilt column i put up a post in "TD help"

GLHnSLH and I are going to be exchanging hoods. ;)
That explains a lot. I got a real GLH turbo a year ago that the origanal owner pulled the hood to make it look more like a sleeper. Jay told me if I came up with a perfect hood that I could have it. Then a while back he started trying to convince me that the hood on the GLH was not perfect and dented. So while he was here I told him to show me where the damage was on the hood as it is perfect. The fenders however next to the hood have been hit slightly and aren't straight.

Finding these things is a problem more than paying for one because people always keep GLHT hoods for Horizons. Making the GLHT very hard to restore. O well I can make one out of a Shelby Charger hood but it cost a $1,000.

We really should have a Spokane area meet.
The accelerator car show is a good one at silverwood, more fun than driving this far to a Mopar show. The Mopar show is nice to show the TDs directly though. Other shows in Seattle would be good too. We do have an NHRA legal track this summer and we have autocross every month. In fact there is autocross this weekend in Deer Park, the old air port no doubt. I plan on going and taking the 87 GLHS.:)

there is E85 at the Texaco here in Spokane on the north side, so you can get filled up there. Haven't been by it in a while though..

Autocross was great fun this weekend. 68 cars on Sunday and 64 cars on Saturday. They seem to be combining the Tri city's autocross with the Spokane group making for a lot more cars. I drove the 87 GLHS, stock with a MP stage 2 and 2.5 straight pipe. It is a rocket on top end. Punched off with the Evo 8 down the street that has just exhaust and air cleaner mods, walked him no problem at all. Then my worker has a 05 STi with turbo forward $400 air intake (LMAO) and a flashed computer, walked him on the way home from autocross. At autocross? MASSIVE wheel spin everywhere and the suspension is old and tired so I got 3rd place blah. MR2 turbos with 255 width Hoosiers are very fast lol. Another race is in 2 weeks they said.

oh, AutoX for a weekend I don't have my kids. Doh, too bad I broke my axle and now there's no engine or tranny or front suspension in the car anymore. New yorker needs tranny mods, new bushings and a real alignment before it thinks of any kind of racing.

I can do the trans when you get parts. But getting some mods done soon is a must before it eats it self up. External oil filter, the pressure mod, shift kit and govener spring. A guy out there races his Volvo wagon, he needs NY comp :thumb:

well we were supposed to go get parts last thursday. I don't have a 2nd driveable car right now, and I have zero garage space as I have 2 Gbody shells up on stands right now. Not sure if I want to be dinking with my only transportation at the moment.
