Lots of guys up in the Seattle area, a few regular guys but theres anywhere from 10-18 TBSSs that meet up almost every month.

If there's something good down in Portland, Im sure we could get a few guys to make a trip down for the day.

Fun stuff, how's the CV axle look? Could be the carrier housing (I think, Bill?).

Definitely look at the link that Roadie gave you. It will get you in the right direction if it isn't the carrier housing just needing a rebuild.

I was going to try to get up there this year but the in-laws wants me to come up next year for sure on their 50th anniversary and we will be along the coast near the air museum.

That is definitely the one. I tried to get down there a few years ago when I was up there. I have been wanting to see the Spruce Goose since I was a kid. I have been told the one in Tillamook isn't bad either.

Welcome!
I tuned an 02 TB back in Feb who drove up from McMinnville to Portland.

I think maybe next spring we should try to get a NW meet going in Portland. Id be willing to drive down for a weekend and hang out.

Yeah, I think we will be in Longview part of the time. We are still working things out. I told them I don't want to be so rushed around this time. I have people I can visit with up there now not just play tourist...

PCM/ECM tuning, remap the spark/airflow/cam (and more) tables plus change the shift feel/quickness. Completely changes the way these things drive. :biggrin:

Safe to assume this was done on an SS?

Yes, but not what I was referring to. Ive done both I6s and V8s. The cam comment is only relevant to the I6s as they have the VVT exhaust cam, can get some more TQ by adjusting its advance/retard!

I was born and raised in Astoria and spent a lot of time in rainier. I sure miss the coast. Idaho sucks sometimes.

Oregon is just awesome Hu?

Hell yeah! People around me have know idea what true beauty is(Cascades, Mt Hood, Astoria). I would love to go back but for some reason my family decided Ohio is a good place to plant ourselves :confused:.
