well after my 500 mile shake down run to see if my ol girl is ready, ive decided to do the next big change. with a 1,000 lbs int he back and running a averege of 70 on the interstate i got 17mpg. so to improve on that i am going to be doing a change from a 3 speed standard on the colum to a 5 speed with over drive in the floor. i plan to take a lot of pics and document every thing so that if anyone wants to do this they will have all the info they need. currently i have a 3.07 rear gear ratio with a 250 intergrated head 2barrel carb. my 3 speed has a low first and second gear but when i shift to 3rd its a huge RPM drop. the down side of this trans is that at 55 or 60 mph i cant down shift or ill hand grenade the engine. so with the 5 speed ill have better driveability and gas mileage. ireally want to run to the NATS this year and this seems to be the next big improvement. i want to fix the banged up front fender and get the solid slider door on but at this point the 200 bucks i spend on doin the tranny will save a lot of money in gas and allow my motor to not work so hard.
seems to be the best thing at this point. dont ya think?

Anyone know anything about the 4.2 dohc inline six thats in the new trailblazers. Ive been lookin at maybe doin a swap to one but id like some input on them before i comitt to it. Ive got a good deal on a whole trailblazer with only 68,000 miles on it. It was wrecked in the rear. Ive seen videos of people puttin these in older cars and trucks with turbos and man those things will haul ass.

got out there amd got busy today. i have the 250 six banger in my van and it has WAY to much crap on the motor. so i started takin every thing off that it doesnt need in order to run good. my valve cover gasket was pooring oil out so while i had it off i modified it a lil. it had 4 steel tubes that ran from the exhaust manifold to the valve covers and another steel tube that connected between these to boxes that were on top of each end of the valve cover. in short i just ripped all the emissions crap off that didnt do anything to begin with
