    It's been an issue for almost 3 years now I've chased it and failed so I decided to go a new route with a really responsive gps sensor. I have a lot of things I still need to sort out and I'm ready to get it permanently fixed. I'm sure you are right about a wire or connector somewhere I'm just done chasing it.

    Benefit to the GPS unit will be accurate speed regardless of wheel/tire size.

    I got multiple issues taken car of from a simple fix on running a singular shorter air source from the intake manifold to a GM MAP sensor that was ran on this vehicle before purchasing. Thanks to member tks9d2tsi i have been able to fix/ identify a lot of older mods made to the car before I purchased it.
    The next change i will make is a new powder coated white valve cover and a billet plug wire cover, billet half moon plug, and oem gasket. I look forward to posting the new pics. The powder coater should be finished in the next week or so.

    Well i ran into my next snag with the car, and its a steady low voltage reading. I replaced the alternator with a genuine oem, a good quality belt, and installed a Red top Optima. The volts a hanging around at 12.7v at steady 825rpm idle. My radio has been reseting between start ups intermittently. I'm going through the wiring now but if anyone knows maybe a notorious wire or such that causes an issue like this please let me know.

    Pulled valve cover to prepare for my new ceramic coated one being professionaly done. Noticed some rounding to the cam lobes. I replaced the oil pump and oil sump and got ahold of some 276 Crower cams. Valves are still in good shape. Got some better springs and retainers and need one new rocker. Seems like a good opportunity to upgrade the head needing these parts anyway.

    getting everything cleaned up about to run and get some mineral spirits to clean the cam bearings and journals roller rockers ect. I'm a little disappointed that only my cam seals showed up today oh well. I bought one of those cam gear locks and that thing was worth every penny. The cam journals have never needed to be smoothed up before or after my most recent rebuild. I guess the oil ports are just very functional still. But I did put in a new oil pump and sump which after inspecting didn't look bad but this is my baby so I'm going on the safe side. Got one more day off and fingers crossed they show up tomorrow.

    ordered all my timing components today. Camshafts are taking forever through STM. still waiting on the new valve cover too. I went a bit over board on the timing belt as I chose to run the HKS belt. I feel much better knowing the timing belt will take way more than my setup can handle. I don't want all my hard work being destroyed by a simple belt. Im going to post more once the other parts arrive. I should be able to raise the hp a decent amout. with
