Re: Go west

I can`t go to SEMA anymore because I have changed my job, (because I used to go with my old boss) But if you are coming to Las Vegas, you have to visit me here 350 miles West in Los Angeles, so that I can show you some cool SoCal cruise nights.

Bring your camera.... !

Re: Hello from Los angeles

Welcome bro, I`m also in LA, SGV and I run a flowmaster 40 with my V8. Sounds much more throaty and Macho than my old Magnaflow muffler.

Re: 156K Front Brake Rebuild – PARTS?

I understand, but if you are running the extra power of a V8 while towing a racecar.... brake upgrades are recommended.

Re: A/C Manifold test gauge set, etc

This set would probably fit your needs. You can buy R12 adapters if you need them for older vehicles.
