    Drove it to work and then played with my buddy and his 88 GTA and left some "11's" on the county roads. Time for a couple sets of fresh tires! Spring's here!

    Drove to Hershey PA last Saturday. Looked at the car today, she's filthy from all the driving. Going back home tomorrow, 560 miles across the country and 27+ MPG. I love this car, family of four still fits.

    Checked gas mileage on the way back from Hershey. I am corrected, I averaged 28.8 MPG over 560 miles. Best ever MPG for the car, impressed me all over again! 111k on her now.

    I ordered the ls6 VCT today hopefully it doesn't take gmpartsdirect too long to ship it out, since my intake is off already because I sold my old one and replaced it with a FAST 102. I want to start her up already! I also ordered some Teflon lined stainless steel lines to start my stainless steel hose swap, those should be in on Saturday or Monday. Yesterday I installed my new radiator, can't figure out how to get the sensor off, I might just buy a new sensor though. New hood should be here Friday, is there anything special that needs to be done to install an aftermarket hood from vfn? On their website they say to bend the tabs down on the brackets and a couple other things.

    I would go ahead and do so, if it's original. No telling when it will go out. Just simple insurance.

    Went for my daily road trip around Northern Michigan, got home early, washed, waxed and cleaned it out and went for a short cruise with my wife.

    We'll be up your way sometime in early July. My parents are both from Bay City, so I spent all my summers growing up out there. Hopefully making it up to to Makinac and showing the wife some of the sites I used to enjoy.

    Do you know the exact name of that sensor? Isn't like the coolant level sensor something?

    Yes, coolant level sensor. I have mine unplugged, the low coolant light kept coming on.

    I've always wanted to do a brake hose swap like that, keep us posted about how much firmer/better the brake pedal feels after the swap.

    Just did this on our car a few weeks ago. I will say it feels better, but I also swapped out rotors and pads too.

    I think you misunderstood what I meant to say, I am replacing most of my hoses in my car with stainless steel hoses. I do also have stainless steel brake hoses to go on with my cts-v brakes but it will be hard to tell how much better the brakes feel with the stainless steel brake lines.

    Thanks for the clarification, Will. Jeff, you don't sound too convinced your brake like upgrade made that much difference?

    I did this not long ago, and my new Bridgstones are on now:
