hah, not quite practical for what that truck is used for. It has a C6 auto in it right now, those are pretty tough. But I'll go back with built auto when it finally dies.

The only mods that are practical is if they help your 1/4 mile time.

Man you are a genious, I like where your head is at.

On another note. I've been talking with Bridges at Baron and Dr. Vanos about the code I was throwing. Seems it could be 1 of 3 things.

1. Needs to be re-timed - I don't think this is the cause, I triple checked that crap.
2. Need to have the vanos adaptation codes cleared - This is a rare cause but I'm going to Baron on Friday to have Chris do this.
3. Bad vanos solenoid - I find it hard to believe that this could be the cause since it was working fine before (leads me to believe it's because of 1 or 2 but I bought a rebuilt unit for 300 with a 150 core (so 150) anyways just to make sure.

My new vanos solenoid has already been shipped, now that's service. Ordered at 11am. shipped by 1pm. I had it overnighted so hopefully I can figure out this issue and get my vanos problems solved once and for all.

That would be freaking sick though, to have a completely see through roof. Maybe 35% tint though.
