Yet still, we lurk. :o

@  ejguillot : (27 September 2020 - 01:08 AM)

Yeah, Facebook took over and killed forums.

@  dezldave961 : (26 September 2020 - 03:24 AM)

Ya, most of the original wave of active members have changed vehicles to something (probably) less mod-friendly, with the occasional person in an LS or Hemi that they do some bolt-ons to. Kinda sad that forums faded.

@  ejguillot : (23 September 2020 - 09:02 PM)

Finally updated my signature to match my current Buick.

@  ejguillot : (10 September 2020 - 03:20 AM)

Things are terminally quiet around here...

Just became a moderator on 3800Pro, so that's fun. I know it's gone thru a couple hands since Intense got sold, then that guy sold the forum. Not sure what that'll help, but it's something.

@  ejguillot : (26 July 2020 - 02:47 AM)

Glad to hear it. Would be a tragedy for us remaining owners to lose the knowledge in these forums.

@  dezldave961 : (12 July 2020 - 01:55 AM)

Hosted a buddy and his family for cookout... Ya, not alot on forums lately. Just keeping the lights on.

@  ejguillot : (08 July 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Everyone have a good 4th? This place is a ghost town...

@  ejguillot : (10 May 2020 - 10:43 PM)

Sweet!

@  dezldave961 : (07 May 2020 - 04:14 PM)

Got bored and started making build video...

@  dezldave961 : (04 May 2020 - 04:05 AM)

I need to hunt down the little black trim bar that's at the top edge of the GS rocker panel cover, for driver's side between rear door and wheel well.

@  ejguillot : (03 May 2020 - 02:42 AM)

I've been on there too. I hope this forum is kept open, there's too much info to allow it to be lost!

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2020 - 10:25 PM)

I've been monitoring GrandPrixForums and 3800Pro (don't have FB)... also hopped on TurboBuick, but 99% GN chatter from boomers

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Everyone at home, plenty of free time.

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Nobody posting? Why not?

@  ejguillot : (27 March 2020 - 05:19 PM)

Congrats on the Comp G GTP!

@  crossout : (25 March 2020 - 05:49 PM)

@  dezldave961 : (20 March 2020 - 04:18 PM)

#364683 MBA

Posted by ejguillot on 13 July 2013 - 02:38 AM

Think very carefully before getting an MBA. You'll run up heavy student loan debt, and without a few years of relevant experience you may well end up in an even worse catch 22 than you are now. Been there, done that.

#356342 Upgrades in progress

The lateral arms might be worth doing if you can get them for a good price.

Read this: http://www.jalopyjou...ad.php?t=350800 regarding the acetone/ATF mix. I tried it and now it's all I use. Squirt it on with a 5cc syringe (the type you get at the drug store for liquid cold medication). Both fluids are fairly cheap for the quantity, give it a shot.

Mine were no fun too. 6 ohio winters...

Try the following loosener: a 50/50 mix of acetone and transmission fluid. The acetone breaks down the rust and the trans fluid helps it seep in and keeps it slippery. And more use of the torch (heat gun works well too), plus get a bigger hammer. :)

#349892 Engine Oil Viscosity

Posted by ejguillot on 02 January 2013 - 09:31 PM

I think I'm going to try the 5w-40 actually... wouldn't that help more with the cold start oil circulation?


For a different perspective on oil, read this:

According to the various threads, the author has performed multiple viscosity studies on various fluids, and does all the mechanical work on his Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
