I love my V6 3rd Gen

Down to just a hair over a 1/8 of a tank, put 5 gallons of gas in it which gives me half a tank

Drove all over town crusing and the gauge didn't even move

I do keep forgetting I don't have brakes

Been that way for over 3 years but long as you down shift you never notice
[and its fun anyways making the pipes crackly going into 2nd at a stop]



All wheel hardware is new front and rear, lines, fluid, master cylinder, brake boosted tested/checked.

all that is left is the prop valve but dunno, brakes are hard like manual but not as hard as say brakes with the engine off. I got power, but its not transfering to the pads right. Gotta lean on it still though.

Dunno if a prop valve could do that???

Sigh.. I remember it used to be $0.35/liter down here in canada and we threatened to boycott the gas industry once it was going to hit $0.45.. THOSE were the days.. $25 could fill the tank!!!!!
