    I caught my drivers side bar just as the hinge was starting to polish it from very light contact (around 1999 or so). Left much longer and I'm sure it would have been damaged enough to break. You...

    I did this exact same thing. Pulled the plunger while rewiring for EFI. In the midst couldn't lock the doors. Pulled the lock module, checked everything, finally reviewed the master schematic,...

    You might be surprised :) If you reverse the wires at the VR pickup on the distributor, you can get some really strange running. The pole piece in the distributor pickup has an asymmetry to it which...

    Let me know what you think for sure.

    I still feel like the real missing piece is a rear anti roll bar. I’m willing to install even the crappy addco bar but they’re NLA.

    It's not the composition of the fuel - the hose provided is E85 rated. It's installing the hose on barbed fittings which the manufacturer specifically recommends against.
