I picked this up last week... well, I ordered it a month ago, but it arrived last week!

This is one well engineered piece... from top to bottom, the design, execution and installation is top notch. So thoroughly thought out. Absolutely impressive.

The install only took about 40 minutes, figure another 30 to get all the tools together.

They have a video that shows the steps, and does so without missing any detail. Very well shot video.

The end result? A shifter with all the precision of a Mauser. So snappy, click-click tight and the throws are so short.

Anyone with a manual transmission equipped C5/6/7 should look into this shifter... it ain't cheap, but it is exquisite...

I meant to tell the world that Matt was ok! I reached out the other day... but that was at work and I didn't remember to share the good news! perhaps it was simple relief?

Oh, well, heading to work (yay!).

IT might be hot on the west coast, but we are super close to the ocean and it hasn't been that bad here yet... hope it stays that way.

Well, J3... it was in the 90s here yesterday!!! And the sun was soooo intense.

The heat breaks today, so we can expect more normal 70s.

Nothing huge to report, really. Just keeping busy!

Such a remarkable day in history. Salutes, thank you's and much love to those men who landed that day, and the following days, to help liberate Europe. They gave their lives for freedom.

120k... check grounds around the battery.

These cannot be "real" codes, if so, the engine would run like absolute garbage.

EFI connection has products that will work on the old SBC and use modern LSx PCMs to run the engine. Using GM components, you get a LSx type coil pack and Sequential EFT.

depends on how deep you wanna get.

https://www.eficonnection.com/

they do components that allow you to put LSx PCMs on a conventional SBC or BBC. Neat stuff.

well.... stop spending money.

1. test the alternator
2. what injectors did you get?
3. check grounds - the battery ground to chassis will corrode
4. check battery terminals
5. test the battery

40 codes would imply a bad PCM... if it was true.

Reset and retest... and if you can, list the codes. The codes themselves are the value, not a vague "I have codes, what do they mean" comment.

Hola!

How's the gang? I have been super busy, and can't access the guru from work... some kinda IP block.

I need to get my ass in gear and work on the site... but I suspect that is a few weeks off, we are closing on a refi and are cashing out some equity so we can do some much needed repairs to the house.

I need to run my C6 through the SMOG test tomorrow. That should be a slam dunk, last weekend, I fixed the engine code... P0449 - Evap Vent Solenoid. This little box with 2 wires and a fat hose... it sits up in the frame, above the exhaust, next to the transmission. Not that hard to remove, but it requires jacking and removing the right rear tire. The part cost all of $23! I suspect a dealer, with a lift, would do this job no time at all.

Oh, well, off to work!

Forgot, it's supposed to be in the 70s here today, and sunny.

Morn'n gang!

I am still about... still busy!!

We are doing a refi so we can take out some equity and remodel things a bit.

Work has kept me busy... and my creaky knee is still slowing me down. grrr...

Doing a tune up on my 06 coupe... figured that at 57k miles and 15 years, new plugs and wires would be a good thing...

well... first, the wires area a BITCH to get off... and two, the plugs were in damned good condition. They actually looked nearly new. I don't think they have been replaced, I bought the car with 17k miles. That leaves me impressed in the precision of modern engine controllers. Super impressed.

I finish today, my knee started to get cranky yesterday!

Hope everyone is doing great!!!

Off to work shortly. Shower, then hit the road!

Got lots of small fires to put out...

It was 80 yesterday, today, back to 70 or so... we might get rain next week, but no promises.

Back to breakfast!!

Morning gang!

Whew... been a busy week... and it ain't letting up... lots going on. Work... planning on doing another refi - rates are so damned low!!

Went to my first car show in a year yesterday. It was fun. I will post up some pics later on. I need to get them off my phone first.

I am a "member" of a lose association of car guys here in LA. We are called the Crazy 8's. It's not so much a club, as a group of friends who cruise together to events. In the last year, the defacto leader/founder had been doing Sunday morning cruises... well, thanks to Bastet's home bakery business, I couldn't go. We did deliveries at the same time. She has since closed the bakery and now my Sundays are free again!

Yesterday morning about a dozen cars cruised in together. The founder dude has a super clean 68 vette roadster, he led the cruise... in the line, we had a Pantera, 4 or 5 Corvettes, a 67 GTO, 64 Nova SS and 3 or 4 late model Mustangs. Trust me, this was NOT a quiet parade. A number of folks waved and two folks stopped and asked were we were heading! Not a bad little car show, eh?

It was fun to get out... at the event, I would give the crowd, that I observed, an A+ for COVID mitigation. Everyone was wearing a mask, save the singer in the band (he gets a pass). Everyone that I spoke to kept distance and everyone used elbow bumps. Collectively, it was impressive... and yes, it was PACKED. I think there was a lot of pent up desire to do something and a nice, sunny, breezy morning was the perfect solution.

I did leave early, I didn't intend to stay long, because my knee was getting tight and I didn't want to risk over exposure.

As for the show itself, very nice. Lots of super clean and super cool cars. I would guess well over 100 cars showed up. There are two lots, plus street side and a back lot. I don't know if the back lot was full, but everything else was! If interested, the location is called the Automobile Driving Museum, in El Segundo, CA. I used to docent there, but bought a house... Perhaps I should try again.

Otherwise, just chugging along!

Welcome back!!!

Sorry about the downtime... GoDaddy moved us to a new server (and it sure is faster!). But they updated the underlying software, which caused the forum software to break.

I called tech support and they reverted the software (a programming language called PHP), and we are back!

I am going update the current software shortly.

Should be a good test. A nice long one to get ready for Sebring next month.

Are they having a corral? I know there is supposed to be one at Sebring, but no GM participation, meaning, no autograph sessions or presentations and such.

quiet morning so far... the wife is watching the French Open (tennis) and we are getting ready to run some errands.

It's been pleasently cool the last few days, but the heat returns tomorrow.

Summer normally ends at the end of October. I can't wait!!!

You may want to do what is (or was?) called a CCC evaluation... This is where dealers are asked to report what they would expect to sell a car for.

It might be the best option here...

Who is your insurance company?

Oh, dude... that so sucks.

I am glad you and the family are ok!!! The house is a big plus, too!

The car can be replaced, but after 13 years, the memories run deep. I sold my C4 after 17 years... it was hard to make the decision, but easy to see it go... it was time.

But this was not your call... that super stinks!!!

If you need any insight, call.

I have a similar Kenwood... I don't remember the exact model number now! It does all that John's does. I use Android Auto with mine to do the nav and music functions.

I also have a box full of components that I need to install, but a bad back and bum knee has really slowed me down.

Morel 3-way front drivers, JL Audio sub, Helix, Focal and Pioneer amps.

John - I also love the Craftsman style.

In Dover, DE, near the hospital, is a Craftsman house - from Sears! It was a kit they sold out of their catalog and was shipped via train! Super cool.

Sadly, I checked google maps, and I think the house is gone... that sucks.

sad piggy... I hope she gets better!!!!

thank's for the update, John!!!

The C8 has a lot of room for storage... the rear trunk will hold a medium sized adult male.

Also, the frunk has quite a bit of room.

The first pic shows the top stowed in the trunk... think how big that top is and how deep the trunk is!

The 2nd pic is of the frunk. Just make sure you tie it down so when the frunk lit flies off...
