just though i'd post to share the story.
the thing has been running beautiful.. changed the fuel filter, increased
fuel pressure, put in a good air filter, cleaned out the interior.. next up
was to put together some G-valves to trick the map sensor and change my
boost levels. was going to take out the cat. converter too.
but i woke up last tuesday morning and the damn thing was gone.. just some
busted plastic on the driveway. they found it by thursday morning, but i
didn't care to ask where.
so now i have an '88 new yorker turbo that sucks again. if they had thefted
it like 2 weeks ago, it would have stalled by the end of the alleyway
LOL --which is where i would have found it, i'm sure.
i was lucky enough to only have about $2.86 worth of fuel in the car, so
they didn't get very far at all. still.. now it needs a steering column,
rear suspension, something is wrong with the front left brakes, needs a
driver's door for the hole in the side where the lock used to be, a
passenger door cause they kicked the crap out of it for no reason, i need
the chrome trim for pretty much the whole car, plastic bumper mouldings for
the front and back, front bumper, and front fenders. it has some damage to
that radiator assembly on the underside and the motor mount sticks out the
bottom now, but the unibody is still straight.. so i'm just gonna drive
this junker till she dies.
learns me to have fire and theft on the next one. *point of the whole
story-- fire and theft coverage is like $22 per YEAR*
i can't wait to get another one ;)
