    President's Day so I had the day off. Got the C5 out, knocked off the dust and fired her up. Running pretty rough so I shut it down and pulled the plugs. Had 2 fouled plugs, so I put in a new set of TR6's (only thing I had available), gapped em cold as hell and she ran much better.

    Rolled through some city streets for a bit and then hit the Jersey Turnpike back up to CT. Beat down some intercooled RX7 with a huge fart can without much effort. Other than that traffic was not as thin as I would have liked so I had to take it pretty easy.

    One headlight is sticking a little bit, have a bulb out on the front left corner and the CD changer isn't working so I got a few things to tweak, but all in all ... she runs pretty fucking strong up here in the cold weather. :eek3:



    Next couple of weeks I'll get it back on the dyno (down in Jersey somewhere) and make sure the EGT's are solid across all 8 holes. I think there may be a minor issue with the plumbing going to the 8 cyl and checking the EGT's on the dyno will answer the question pretty quickly.



    Good times on the day off. :cool:

    Roads have cleared up nicely here. Smooth sailing all the way around. I had to check out all the roads and shit before I took it out. If it had been even marginal, I would have waited. No sense in getting wrapped around a pole.

    very nice! Use 02's though glen instead of EGT's unless you have one hell of a tuner who can read them right. EGT's work on a bell curve difference of lean and rich. Hope all goes well with it.

    Glad you got the car out :bigthumb:
