Re: Dodge magnum 360

If your used to the GMC in your profile, your not going to like the dodge. The 318/360 are some of the most underpowered engines ever put in trucks. We dyno'ed a 360 automatic truck back in college....

Re: inside tire tread wear

The "before" specs are after putting the new suspension under it. If moved from a 2-post to the alignment rack. The "after" is what it was set to. Tires were rotated at the same time. 1000 miles...

Re: Advice from anyone in Indiana

+1. US41 is the closest 1/4 mile I believe. Its almost to Chicago.

OP, I come to West Lafayette once a year. Seems like a good town, but it's definitely tailored to the college students.

Re: Heat extractor vs scoop

Less than an inch from the top of the engine to the bottom of the hood. Not a lot of room to work with. And with a limited number of cars, you wouldn't sell enough to make any money

Re: Heat extractor vs scoop

Seems like you guys agree with me then. My argument was that air(heat) is not going to be pulled from them. But air will be scooped in and then pushed out the back of the hood and under the car.

Re: SO 3/8 MG325 sticky torue knob?

I don't think I can twist my knob very easily but it flips from forward to reverse pretty easy. I just leave it and my MG725 on full power and use the trigger to limit torque

Re: Is there such a thing as a cursed vehicle?

I wont touch an electrical concern for under 1.0. That would including check power and grounds at the PCM and Pedal. If I find one is missing or skewed, then it goes to straight time for diag.
