@  RoadMonster : (21 August 2014 - 11:22 AM) what year GM trucks had the LQ4 maf? I think I need to replace mine
@  Crazyguy03 : (20 August 2014 - 09:50 PM) I wanted to see how his build was going. He pays close attention to detail and reading his progress threads/posts were intriguing to say the least
@  Crazyguy03 : (20 August 2014 - 09:48 PM) Thanks Marchi1
@  Marchi1 : (20 August 2014 - 12:51 PM) Anthony is a little off on his own, and rarely posts anything anymore
@  Nateteo : (19 August 2014 - 11:01 PM) Any one know if 06 or 08 charger rims with fit our cars? Like Mitchell says the bold patterns are the same.
@  Crazyguy03 : (19 August 2014 - 05:07 AM) Any one still talk to Hellfish?
@  Naminator : (19 August 2014 - 04:38 AM) That the same everywhere. I saw some Lime green Lambourghini aventador crowding traffic, cutting in and out of lanes on a packed 4 lane highway today. The kind thats stops suddenly for no reason. Gonna kill someone I bet.
@  steveyjr1982 : (19 August 2014 - 02:47 AM) Nope, every day I get closer and closer to having an accident because of the people around here
@  BlackBetty : (19 August 2014 - 02:07 AM) well i know im new, willing to put in the work n such, so i hope that moron comment wasnt directed at me for trying to save money
@  steveyjr1982 : (19 August 2014 - 12:05 AM) Why, oh why are there so many morons in this world?
@  BlackBetty : (18 August 2014 - 07:56 PM) yea i have been looking at summit for the intake pipe ideas. and aluminum should work in the desert for $120 vs $195.. just need to select a muffler now :-)
@  Frostflowz : (18 August 2014 - 06:43 PM) Just paint it
@  keithr182 : (18 August 2014 - 06:16 PM) @blackbetty, I purchased the 304 stainless for sure. Alum wouldn't last more than a few winters here in Canada.
@  Marchi1 : (18 August 2014 - 04:52 PM) a friend ordered the prebent pieces from either Summit or Jegs that were polished and then shortened them accordingly.
@  BlackBetty : (18 August 2014 - 11:18 AM) whats a good length then? i was just seeing 1 foot pipes when looking around
@  Marchi1 : (18 August 2014 - 11:14 AM) 22.5
@  BlackBetty : (18 August 2014 - 11:03 AM) what is a good degree of bend off the throttle body? for a pipe for the cone air filter. 45 degrees?

OK need a conformation here.
This happens irregularly. No correlation to hitting bumps or any thing else.

On the dash, I'll get the full "Christmas lights", reset the gages and the Ding, ding, ding..... Then back to normal. Car stays running. ( crosses fingers as panic sets in )

It's just started doing this, this past week, Maybe once or twice a day.

Bad Battery connection?
or.
Ignition switch / key tumbler?

I don't remember which.

Who has "fixed this" Ign. switch by spraying contact/Maf cleaner in there?

Exactly what mine did when the ignition switch went out. I have not done the cleaning myself (just the replacement), but there is at least one good article here (or a link to clubgp) that goes through the clean up routine.
I have taken one apart though, and will say that you do need to take care. Even though the parts are all relatively large (as compared to a watch?), but are finicky enough that you would want to have steady hands and a good memory for where they all go. Or take pictures as you go.

But the symptom is definitely the same as my switch. It really would rear up when I would use the turn signal switch, and only killed the engine after it had been doing it for a few weeks.
On the other hand, my '03 LS gave no prior warning when it went out and just literally died out of the blue going down the freeway. Oddly enough, when the GS finally gave out I was going down the freeway too. I guess it just "knows" when you're in an awkward spot.

Did this happen before you did your extensive engine work? I would check all my grounds and power feeds before I condemn an ignition switch.
