Just moved here from the east coast and I wondered who else was in the area? Being from Texas I consider anywhere from Austin down south to Pearsall to be near.

Well, considering this thread is from 2007, and last post was in 2011... Maybe something different is to be done?

You have a point.

Looking for someone to show me the ropes on fuel pump tweaks in the upstate NY/northern VT/Eastern ON/Western QC area.

Ducati is from the west of bejesus end of Canada. I looked, he's about 3/4 towards the west end.

And I'm in the middle of NY, ofelas is probably 5 hours anyways from me.
