Gravol, and homemade turkey soup with plenty of bay leaves and whole star anaseed in it. Also if one can't keep anything down including water, plenty of showers are good as the body can absorb water through the skin. I went 4 days last year unable to keep anything down, couldn't get to the store for gravol, I think showers kept me alive lol.

Me and the boy had the flu last weekend. If you don't do anything else keep pound water. It helps a lot.

My mopar madness memories have faded too much to remember lol. But it sounds like a fun car to throw a turbo on and piss off some hellcats while getting better fuel mileage. :grin:

I want to say they’re the rumble bee package. They’re actually an r/t, but have the bigger engine.

Hauled an f150 to Calgary yesterday, the 96 did great going 65-75 mph. Front seal apparently didn't care for that though, as it leaks about a qt every 100 kms now. It'll never need an oil change again for the rest of it's short life. Need to get my 90 going asap.

I'm in GA at Kubota school, I got the instructor to show me how to turn up the pumps on RTVs (side by sides) and I'm pretty stoked. Low power complaining out of warranty customers here I come

Ahh, that’s always fun to be able to play with power like that.; I really need to stop procrastinating about getting windows 7 on my virtual machine, so I can start tuning on my Jetta. It’s been running heaps better since I cleaned out the intake, but I always want more.

Helped a buddy move yesterday, and bllew the turbo pulling the trailer up a river hill. It's been making a weird howl for over a week, so I knew it was coming. Pulling the hill it started to howl loud for a couple seconds followed by a loud bark/squawk and loss of power. Managed to average 50+ mph while staying under 800f post turbo. The pyro never came in so handy before lol. Gonna pull the air filter off and check the damage in a bit. Hoping the compressor is still in one piece.

Yea Dman, it's amazing how much it gets me to get 2.5 more hp from a N/A 24 hp diesel lol.

Remps what turbo plans you have now?

The motor in the 96 needs a complete rebuild, so the plan is to trailer my w250 to the city and get a new key made for it, then change the headgasket and fluids/filters, and patch up crappy leaky tranny lines, and drive that until I get the motor from the d250 to reseal and put in the 96. I'd like to completely rebuild the p pump motor and use it with the 727/3.07 in something smaller and lighter, single turbo with 550-650 hp, 5k gov springs, balanced, and a few other supporting mods. I'll be going through the complete drivetrain of the w250 after the 96 is back on the road with a new motor and clutch, but not fixing anything else on it as it will eventually be a drivetrain donor. Probably something around a 64.5-66/73/.8 on the p pump, and 57/78ish twins in the 96 with the 90 motor. Injectors 70ish lpm for both the ve and the p-pump.

Ok, I’ve learned they’re actually the scat pack cars. They start at $38,995, and I know of one near Missoula Montana that’s just over $50k.

On another note my vw is now finally running egr free. I still haven’t done anything with the tuning yet, but it’ll be nice not having soot being pumped back into the engine.
