    Ignition cylinder woes

    Yes pull the wheel, you will need a lock ring compressor and a steering wheel puller. About $30 Buy a replacement lock cylinder, and not a cheap one or you will be doing the job again soon.

    Ash tray handle fix suggestions

    Clean it off really well and use clear gorilla glue. Otherwise start looking for a replacement.

    Transmission bolts

    It's on the firewall side. It is put in from the opposite direction. I suggest a very long extension.

    Difficulty of installing new cat?

    https://m.autozone.com/emission-control-and-exhaust/catalytic-converter/magnaflow-catalytic-converter/888043_64788_2149?aqs= Pretty easy. Two bolts and a clamp. Just keep a long extension and universal joint handy, as they will keep the cussing to a minimum.

    Engine Choices

    I would pick up a 94-95 series one supercharged motor. It will run about the same cost. The only additional cost would be the 5/8 heater hose, extending the injector plugs, memcaler and tuning.

    Periodic Table of Cars

    Funny. To bad they didn't build them like mine.

    Anti sway bar bushings

    I have some polyurethane rear bushings left. In red or black. I kept a few sets around just for the forum. PM Me for info.

    MPG calculation for Supercharged cars or other modded cars

    That may be another issue for me. I have not considered the odometer. That may be a function of the BCM. If it is all of my MPG will be off. I really hope speed and odometer are both products of the ECM. Otherwise this gets much more complicated and will most likely require BCM programming. I am pretty sure no one has broke into that.

    MPG calculation for Supercharged cars or other modded cars

    Depends upon driving. Mainly 12 miles back and forth to work, I get around 18. That is stop lights and having fun. Going 50 with no interruptions,in sixth gear, I can say 29 mpg on the low side. I honestly believe, once the tune is finally complete, 33-5 MPG at 55-60 MPH is with in reach. All assuming flat ground.

    MPG calculation for Supercharged cars or other modded cars

    I was hoping there would be some feedback.
  14. This may help if you have any issue with the accuracy of the MPG calculation, and can be applied to all years with finding the correct wire. My car is already supercharged and I am running a transmission with a speed sending unit that could not be programmed into the ECM. The solution was to use a converter box from Dakota Digital (SGI-5 E) http://www.dakotadigital.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=126/category_id=-1/mode=prod/prd126.htm. Works great, I can even account for minute tire differences. The only issue I have had is the MPG calculation is off due to the ECM maps being off from stock. This has been an issue with all of my supercharged swaps. Good news is it has finally bothered me enough to get me thinking on a fix. I think I found a fix. If I run another SSGI-5 on the speed signal wire, between the ECM and BCM, I believe I can use it to adjust the MPH going to the BCM. This should allow me to adjust the MPG calculation. Now the possible issues: Cruise may not be able to set until a higher speed (roughly 33% higher) Speedometer runs off the data line so should it or should it not be affected? Any other possible issues are welcomed.

    Where to route 4 guage wire for aftermarket amp?

    Use a drill and run it through the firewall. That is the correct and best way. Why ruin a water barrier?
