Well, thank God my route over to my secret proving test ground isn't riddled with potholes and the likes.

So according to Tom, if I'm >250mi a week, I'm good! No bump-stopectomy for me! I get to keep both my bump tips!!
Is that dirt I see on your springs?!

I just set up a dyno appointment at Swanson's this Saturday.

3 pulls with A/F readings.. $100.

We'll see what happens.

Stick with the regular drain plug. Even if you mess up by cross-threading the plug, you only have to buy a new plug. Most all oil pan drain threads are of stonger steel (on purpose), so if anything strips, it's the $5 plug.

If we changed oil weekly, it would be great. But it's just one more thing to worry about.... and it's no big deal dropping the drain bolt into the oil.

This reminds me... I need to change my oil 200 miles ago.

Did you say it was a DynoJet? If it's a Mustang Dyno, I won't even accept your numbers.

From all the research I've been doing lately, I've learned that Mustang Dynos can be set-up to read whatever they want them to say. In other words: make the customer happy. Want 300 RWHP? Sure... let me unload the barrel a little bit here...

What was yours on, Leo?
