if i dont have to work that would be great. ill put it this way, if cjohn doesnt come cuz of work that probably means the i wont be coming either. but just in case, i am going to RSVP +4. my entourage will be with me....no i dont have kids. give me a buzz if you are going to need someone to do stuff on your car. I love to do the work while other people are getting drunk around me.

i hope that you dont have an MSD Coil... or plan to get one. iridium plugs are not recommended, nor are platinums. what kind of specialty tools do you have. me and brad are lookin for a OBD-II plug to USB interface.

baffle?

the dealership probably installed a baffle pre-MAF. take it out and you have the sound again.....but the cel comes back. you win some, you lose some. there is a way to fix it though. it requires modifying where the MAF is located. Bring money and ill fix it...and as a bonus i will give a class called "Air Flow Dynamics & You"...Really. You've got my number.

Dont have an OBD II to usb interface but I might have an OBD II to a serial port. It might work.

-Why dont they recomend iridiums or platnums...I really cant stand autolite plugs. (Or motor craft) Dont have the coils whats wrong with them
