hope to get over again next year (2009) the plan was to sell the SS later this year and come over buy a new truck and have an extended vacation using it, but now its all fixed AGAIN lol i wanna keep it and do a few more mods, still going to have the vacation though.
well Paul. when i bought the truck it was already on transmission number 3, which i managed to trash about 3 months into ownership (my fault to much right foot all the time lol)did beat some interesting cars mind a few porches, loads of subaru''s and impretzas, a ferrari (that was he best lol) some stock lightnings a sr10, some HD 150s (although with my buddy Adam hd it was neck and neck but hes now modded with meth kit and some other go faster bits so we''ll have to see now lol)
i had changed the maf when it first started playing up (thats what a "trans specialist told me)but then found out the trans was shot,nothing to do with the maf at all i had it rebuilt with all the best parts (trans number 4)and enjoyed driving again, i then got a light on dash saying running lean bank 2, i assumed it was in need of new bigger injectors, but it blew up before i could get any.. (engine number 2 a new engine as the old one was beyond repair) found out it had blown due to performance maf Not suitable for supercharged engines makes them run lean (we live and learn, wont ever be using the first transmission specialist some expert he was )anyways all fixed used it for about a week when trans blew again we managed to break a seal on the trns when putting new engine in lost all fluid and blew trans again... rebuild number 5 and shes all fixed driving better than ever, i''ve learnt to not use my right foot as much with gas at over $9 a gallon i''ve got two reasons not too lol
i''ve been collecting parts over the last year a buddy in Florida has let me get them sent to his address and (paying for the ones that wouldn''t take a uk credit card) he sent them to me last week so should arrive any day now, i''ll be updating my profile here and posting pics soon. i also managed to get a set of tinted tail lights fom a guy on sileradoss.com they arived yesterday and look awesome will be putting them on the truck today.. as i''m now off work for a week at home just chillin and looking after my mum.
mum had a heart attack last month and is going into hospital for a opperation so me and heidi are taking time off work to look after her.
Hope everything is ok with all the LA members and familys
