I'm Pete from Southern California. Have been a certified mechanic/technician for a long time. I'm now retired.
I still do some consulting work when some fellow wrenches I know get in a pickle with something I might be familiar with. I have a few vehicles. they are scattered in different states. I allow only people I am close to drive them and only I or they service them. Here's a few that may be interesting, maybe not.
1970 VW Westfalia Camper 8.2 liter Eldorado Powertrain transplanted in 1980 Engine and transaxle rebuilt and heavily modified in 1984 Sister in-law has it in her garage in Colorado and just uses it to tow her boat.
1984 F-Body (Camaro) 383CDI Mechanical Lift Engle Cam Heavy Mods charged input, troublesome, squirrely
1966 Chevelle SS Mod 427CDI 4speed originally out of a 67 Caprice SS a classic setup, dependable, launches nicely
2000 C5 Base LS1, 4L60E Mods My daily driver out here. Runs pretty good. CR is higher than stock (10.5:1)
Figured it might be nice to join a GM Forum. I'm sure I will learn something
Best to all!
