Thought about how great it would be if it was running.

Found out I get 22 mpg with a tank of auto-x and hitting boost everytime the car moves forward.

I am actually half curious what kind of mileage I would get if I stayed out of boost and just drove like a normal person. Maybe 28ish?

I dont think I am patient enough to not get into it from time to time though.

Solution: I think I'll have my mom or dad drive it for a week!

Thanks for the input, confirms my (awesome) suspicions!

What kind of driving does that include? I am just curious.

Still chopping up my engine harness. Another soldering iron not working worth a crap halfway through the job - I need to pick up some better equipment.

I noticed nobody on here ever mentioned LS2 truck coils for the SR. I'm going to get some parts together and give them a try.

Was a one owner car, titled at 90 miles to the owner of toys for trucks here in GB. JC, are you trevor?

No plans aside from fixing the HG and enjoying it. It does need some minor rust repair.

No my name is Robbie.. Mine had the exact paint chips in the front. The guy who bought it from me lived up in the green bay area.. Maybe a little west. Had a mint interior. I bought it for the old lady to drive. Funny, mine was a one owner when I bought it also. Looks nice! Congrats!

It needs some rust repair there. There are a few minor spots of rust, but the worst is the driver's rear fender. The floor and trunk are rust free through.
