If the fuel has up to 10% ethanol like here in nj, I would think that would be a reason to have to run the GAV richer (or more open). I am always kind of amazed that gasoline today will still run a...

Re: Mike wings aka "wingski"

Very sad to here this. I remember he was upset when he was trying to sell his car. I really dont think anyone meant to disrepect him. Seemed frustrated when he left , may he rest in peace.

Re: My Mitchell synchro trans experience
