  2. That's a good way to get started and exactly what I did for a couple of months before making any major changes to my truck too. I had an advantage of starting out with a PCM4LESS tune (he doesn't lock them) so all I had to do was pull a few degrees of timing in cruise cells (knock was all over the place even on 93 octane). Even if a question has been asked several times, ask again on here and on HPT forums as methods change over time and you may have read an outdated method from the archives. Good luck! For those asking to see tunes, I'm looking into my database backups to see if I can fin
  3. Wow, I never knew this thread even happened or knew Chris felt this way about my tunes. I never claimed to be a tuner and only knew the basics. The plan for both Chris and Brian was to make a few changes to remove spark and to send logs off for Frank to email new tunes. That was it! The tune in Chris' truck was a Frank tune from when Frank installed his supercharger. What I modified was REMOVING spark from "tip-in" cruise cells so that Chris could drive the thing without spark retard and knock on the highway. No WOT was being done AT ALL!!! NONE!!! No shift speeds, no throttle settings, no
  4. I play guitar a little bit. I play a couple of Huntington Lace guitars (strat copies). One with the stock Lace pickups (modern strat sound) and the other with the Huntington Holy Grail pickups for cleaner sound at higher gains (nice quack too). I played my dad's 1972 sunshine yellow strat in jr high jazz band (jr high was 24 years ago), but hadn't played at all until last year when I got the first Huntington for my birthday. It's been fun relearning everything... Thank God for youtube backing tracks and lessons!!! I think I want a Jackson or Dean next for that heavy metal sound! CHUG CHUG
  5. That's how every good Darwin Award winning story starts out right there!
  6. Congrats Chris! It's awesome to see your truck in pictures, but it's simply amazing in person... and beyond that, it's even MORE AMAZING when you realize that he drives it EVERYWHERE for work, play, etc. Every time I stop in to American, Chris is always gone on some cross country training thing, vacation, or something else. I've never seen a truck with as many miles look as nice. You truly deserve it!
  7. Believe what you like. Custom CAI cost me $15 in materials I already had in the garage, plus $40 for the filter, $390 shipped for a bellmouth down pipe and 3" mid pipe combo, $70 for a manual boost controller, $50 shipped used for a BCD. Running 18 psi, it ran 302 HP to the wheels (with NO correction factor) and is starting to run out of fuel. Next mod is to replace the fuel pump with another one and pull the stock air/air TMIC for an air/water unit and that will be it. I'm not sure what your problem is with me, or if I offended you in some way, but I appologize. You never had anything bad
  8. I never got around to making the truck fast, just never pulled the trigger. Had plenty of parts in the garage though that someone here will hopefully put to use to pull 550 or so crank HP NA. Should be a fun time. Not 11's, but I'll bet it won't blow the exhaust off of the truck at full throttle either! My truck was the slowest vehicle I've ever owned, and the last 6 months were the least reliable. Still loved it and would still be driving it if it would have been more practical. The ONLY tuning I/We did on Chris's truck was to pull timing OUT so that he could drive the damn thing without
  9. Yeah, I've had it 2 weeks already. Had some fun with it last night on the interstate and entrance ramps... ran a Talon Tsi, a GTI T, and a BMW 750. All got waxed by the MS3. I know what you mean about roomy too, I'm 6'3" and 235 and don't even have to put the seat all the way back. My wife is 6'1" with longer legs than me and she's even comfortable. I didn't have any pics yet since I was waiting until I put my rims on, but I went and snapped these for you. It's an '08.5 GT without nav, leather with alcantara (or something like that) inserts which grip your body MUCH better than the '
  10. Edmunds rated them on two different days, but the Cobalt did beat the MS3 in the quarter. The range of magazine test numbers are all over the place on both cars. You want to find out for sure? Bring it on over ,we can run at Newton's 1/8 or run up to Cedar Falls for the quarter. And I assume you know that the previous record around "The Ring" was held by the MS3, right? Did you know the MS3 set the record on a crouded track full of the public driving everything from race cars, bikes, and street cars? And the MS3 set their record with drivers who had never been to the track before? Congrats to
  11. Hey, you sent me a PM about a throttle body and I can't reply because your inbox is full. Hit me with another PM after you empty your inbox.
  12. That's what Paypal and credit cards are for, LOL! I could still meet you halfway, or heck as many times as Chris goes to Chicago, maybe I'll just pay him to drop them off for you on the way. Mine too. I wanted to buy your 22's, but these 20's came up to cheap for me to pass up. Now they're cheap for someone else... heck, I've got 600 just in the rims and that's where it's bidding is at for the rims AND practically brand new 295/45/20 Grabber UHP's!!! OUR PRICES ARE INSANE!!!
  13. Thanks Kevin! I'll have another Chevy someday. I've got to many of GM's engines in the garage and hav had to many in the past to stay away for to long. I think I'm going to be rather basic with the MS3 and instead build a 6.0L carbed rat rod for weekend fun. Something I can build in the garage and not have to worry about finishing and cleaning up before Monday will sure be a change. That's a big negatory on the spanking of either car beating one another stock for stock. High 13's to low 14's from many magazines and driver reports out there. It's a diver's race and the 3 has more low
  14. Watch the next few days as I'll be selling more items too. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...E:IT&ih=004 Good luck everyone! It's been great! Edit: Sorry, $600 starting price $1400 Buy it Now price.
  15. I just traded my SSS in on Monday, gave me 10,500 for it and it "booked" at 14K. The dealer flat out told me "We don't want your trade, we're getting backed up on trucks and SUV's already". You'll start to find these things cheaper and cheaper I'm afraid.
