    Now that my finances are back in business, I will be taking my car in to Top Gear this week. Going to get the Melling high pressure pump and upgrade the timing chain. I'm also thinking about putting some headers on if finances allow for it right off the bat. I would really like to get Kooks, but thinking about TSP, as well (much more affordable). Also, if I go with the TSPs, I may be able to get some Strano springs as well.

    Is there anything else I should have looked at or performed while the tech is under the hood/car?

    Sean is a good guy and straight shooter. If there is anything suspect while he's in there, he'll let you know and treat you right.

    UPDATE!!!

    As for the A/C leak... Sean could not find it. We're doing the waiting game on some dye he put in there. He says bring it back in two weeks, but I doubt it will last that long. He did replace the high side Schroeder valve, but I had just replaced that back in April, and the low side one in November. He said the high side was "suspect" so maybe it was improperly installed when I did it... (if that's even likely... not sure).

    I also asked him to look around under the car for anything that was due for replacement. Torque arm bushings were shot, making clunking noises on little bumps... got some poly ones on there now. The rear end was leaking (have addressed this twice already, but apparently GM has an upgrade part that I didn't know about... he put the three piece crush sleeve on there... the stock one was a two piece). Also replaced the bearings and seals in the diff. He said the axles look good, but this is the LAST dime I'm spending on the 7.5".

    Window motors were replaced, and he ran a wire to the passenger side to alleviate the strain on the circuit, giving each motor full voltage... Come to think of it, I didn't even try it out on the ride home...

    And then there's the ominous ticking noise...
    Are you ready?




    LOOSE SPARK PLUG!!!!!

    But I'm glad it's finally solved. The fact that it wasn't anything serious freed up some cash to get that other stuff done (the rear end was nice to have fixed so that I don't have that stupid whaling sound on the freeway anymore).

    Probably after the new year. Had to put most of the cash into maintenance. Next power mod will be Kook's headers/y-pipe... then the heads/cam and possibly LS6 intake.

    Somewhere in between all that will come Strano springs and possibly some upper/lower A-arms or a k-member.
