    coil on plug opinions

    Well, the Lightning has ate another plug or plugs in less than 250 miles. I'm sure it could be stale gas as it's not driven often. Since I have to pull them all, I going to just get another set of Denso IT24's. It was tuned on them years ago and I swapped down to the 22's this last time. I have...

    Matt helped me out

    I needed some tires for the diesel and Matt helped me out on brand and the style. I had to back order them but I wanted nothing but a 285/70/17 so I'm willing to wait. We ended up on the Dunlop Rover MT Maxx Traction Tire. It seem to be the best compromise of a mud tire with wet traction ability...

I'm on dial up and happen to literally be the last house on the line. My next door neighbor is long distance without area calling. We are getting a Dish...

    89-93 5.0 lx

    Why is it so hard to find a decent LX or Gt that hasn't been carburrated and gears. I've tried Ebay,, and auto trader. I wanted to spend $3500-$5000 on a 5spd with a clean interior. I don't mind driving but the better ones seem to be near Cali; a little too far for me. I've searched 500...

I got with Jessie at LFP and ordered a C&L plenum, Accufab tb, and an idler pulley setup[with belt] to reduce the belt slip I get once and awhile.

    LFP is the Best

    I'd been trying to get my "tuner" on the phone all day to no luck. I knew LFP had a great REP on here but I wanted my guy who won't answer the phone. I finally gave up and called LFP. I explained my problem with the truck and how it would run fine until you got to 8lbs. of boost and then fall on...

    Will 99 tail lights fit 03

    I ordered some tail lights and the ones the guy sent have three holes vs. mine having two. I was wondering if I can make these fit since according to his auction they fit 99-03 Lightnings.

    Cooling the Intercooler

    A guy at work and I were talking about how to cool the intercooler more than usual by using an extra one in the bed with ice on it in a cooler of sorts. Well, he said something about spraying the factory one with co2. I've heard of doing this with nitrous but not the co2. The only downside was...

    Anyone Raced an ML55

    A guy from work is supposed to be getting an ML 55 Mercedes or the ML500 from a co-worker. I don't expect to win, I just wondering how bad I'm going to get embarrassed. I know the ML500 is faster out of the hole but the ML55 is better on the top end. I doubt we will get past 85, so I'm hoping it...

I know the sensors usually have a black and a white wire but I'm clueless on which wire connects to which on the Phantom Autometer gage setup.
