" I know it's been awhile but DAMN !! Put the battery charger on for awhile and it started up but boy was she mad !! Ran rough and wouldn't idle worth a crap for several minutes. Is that normal?? I know it did something similar to that when I put the PCM back in after a tune but not quite that bad. Just wondering..
    Sounds like the computer had to relearn everything. Was the car sitting with a dead battery for a while? It's not that uncommon for one to run rough after not having any juice.

    Glad I could help with the weather lol supposed to rain down here for the next 2 days...

    Not sure how you northern guys do it with having to store your cars for the winter. It's been a month and I'm pretty sure I'm having withdrawal from not being able to drive the T/A. At least when it's all said and done I'll have a new clutch, fuel pump, rear main seal, and a new strange s60. Plus some other general maintenence type stuff done. Thinking since I'm getting a new daily I'm going to switch the T/A from penzoil platinum to amsoil signature series.

    I know the feeling -- we picked our car up late in the year and didn't get to enjoy it much before the weather turned.

    I guess all most of us in the upper states can do is polish stuff on our cars in the garage.

    Can't even do that. I have it up at my dads covered and moved to the side out of his way also only heat is a wood burner and no insulation so it takes about 3 days until it's warm enough to work...so it will come home as soon as the weather warms and I can move a car outside of my garage.

    +1 on the Magnaflow !! Coupled with long tubes (and in my case, cat deletes) you can't beat that sound and performance ! Sounds like you snagged a nice low mile T/A. Winter sucks even more now ,, doesn't it !?

    Ron,, I guess you have a heated garage .... I live in Md too. My garage is just too cold to do anything. I have new rotors and pads from R1Concepts and braided lines and a line lock from WS6 store just waiting to go on but that would be just hateful to put up with below freezing temps .....or maybe i'm just a wimp. lol. I figure it'll be late March before I get to all that.

    Can't really do anything on our car where it is parked. I have her sandwiched between the Regal and our race trailer and a friend's car parked behind it.

    nothing is necessarily wrong with it...in fact, its in great shape lol I'm just an orange fanatic "used to own some hugger orange cars hints my screen name" and it looks like you've got the orange paint scheme down to a science.

    I bought a kerosene/diesel fuel burning torpedo heater from Home Depot. That sucker will heat up my little non insulated cinder block garage in about 1/2-1hr (depending on outside temps). Best thing I ever bought. A buddy of mine was over my house and I fired it up, next day he bought 1 for his garage!! LOL
