    Ahhh nice! Great line of work to be in. We have a lot of people here working after midnight, and when it was my turn to be on call I got calls at all hours of the night. Funny enough not all emergencies, and stuff that they should have tried to troubleshoot before we got involved.

    Don't tell me you are a tax or audit person? I work at LBMC and man busy season is kicking everyone's butt right now.

    @JohnC that mph is a solid high 7 second pass on tire or with a good launch.

    Yeah we are waiting on a biopsy of my stomach to see if the lesions in my stomach are from a bacterial infection, or what is causing them.

    Yeah it is pretty tight inside, believe me I have a nice build planned to put a t56 and rebuild the 350 with a nice size cam and some nice heads, but building a daily driver is not on the list right now for what I can handle with school, work, and trying to figure out some health issues.

    Matt, If you want to come sit in the C10 you will see why it's difficult to make it work when you are actually man sized, something AshleyP doesn't know anything about he's a shorty lol. Ashley if they sold a manual Silverado 1500 in the newer body style I would buy it. Honestly I love the idea of building the C10, but what I have learned is that even if you build a daily driver, it requires more tinkering than I have time for.

    Well you see the newer GM trucks aren't nearly as crappy as a newer f150. I would never be able to daily drive the C10 my back cant do it. I need comfy like an old man.

    It has a hitch on it, the previous owner put a cab light in it, it's a bench seat truck. Honestly I towed a trailer with my old lawn mower and a bunch of random stuff when we moved last year from the house in Franklin down to the new house in Spring Hill.

    I do have a few pics. I need to get more of it though.

    Well the newer truck has an LS motor, so it would be new awesomeness, and I would be getting rid of an old SBC junky motor, because all old 350's with carb's just suck lol I would be looking at a lower mile truck, and this idea is quite tempting.

    Alright I am going to poll y'all. We have discussed putting the C10 up for sale along with the civic and getting a 2011-2013/2104 GMC Sierra or Silverado as my daily driver. What do you all think? I would be putting the c10 up for about $6500, it has a 350/350 combo with a new water pump and 4 core radiator. it runs great and I will be rebuilding the steering. If you think I should go for it, do you know someone that would want to buy the C10?

    The thing that I don't care for with videos like that is who was the original shop, what was the customer originally asking for... They say it came from a competitor, but they don't say which one, and really it is missing the original info. Now not saying that it isn't awesome they gained more power, but did they just go all out for one dyno pull to make themselves sound awesome? I don't know why that bothers me so much, but man it's a pet peve when shops pull that whole "We got this form another shop". Hell I think my buddy Ryne used to do that, but now he just posts what the info is from when the car gets to him.
  13. 2005 Honda Civic LX/EX Swap

    Alright up for sale is a fine specimen of why you should buy a Honda! It is my daily driver 2005 Honda Civic LX with an EX motor, brand new Honda ex engine wiring harness, and EX ECU. I bought it roughly 2 years ago, and had to replace the motor shortly after. I did not find a non-vtec motor, so i bot a JDM D17A2 from J-Spec which had under 50k miles on it. Since that was done about a year and a half ago it has had the oil pump o-ring replaced (they dry out from sitting, common issue with JDM motors), new front and rear main seals (factory Honda seals not crap aftermarket), valves have been adjusted, I purchased direct from Honda an EX wiring harness, and I purchased a low mile EX ECU. The crank position sensor has been replaced, and I purchased a Honda water pump and timing belt set and that is on there as well. The car runs and drives amazingly, it has the LX exhaust manifold with gutted cat, the only thing left is to get the rear o2 sensor wired in. It does not affect much of the performance of the car, but the Check engine light is on because of it. It has a clear clean TN title, and is a 5 speed car (manual transmission), it gets over 30 mpg and is a bit peppy for a little 4 door Honda. Asking price is $3200 OBO. ***I will get some pictures here after I get her a bath, I know this may take a while to sell.

    Sounds amazing man.

    ^^^ What he said. I am really surprised they had it on the dyno with them on. Most of the shop owners I know won't allow that...
