Ain't nothing sweeter!

This is a discussion on Ain't nothing sweeter! within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; After 2-1/2 months, and way more work than I initially anticipated, the Bird was fired up for the first time ...

    Talking Ain't nothing sweeter!

    After 2-1/2 months, and way more work than I initially anticipated, the Bird was fired up for the first time tonight. She lit right off and ran better than I expected -- a few idle issues as the PCM got things figured out, but nothing major. After she came up to temp, I banged on the loud pedal a bit to hear what the new exhaust setup does for the car... wow! All that is left now is to install the cutout and re-assemble my center console. The sound of her running for the first time tonight was just sweet, sweet music.

    Thanks all! I was running everything I did through my head tonight trying to remember if I had forgotten anything. I was actually a little nerved up turning the key.
