That was a year ago. You must be going to be within shouting distance of Ron in a couple short months or something.

PQ's Black Bitch is one expensive lady to keep happy. Hell now she just dies on him if he does not spend money on her.

Was going to put a stall in and have them tune it. They said I could get it retuned up to a year but I may miss it by a few weeks.

Pretty common with a cam actually. She's was just tired of the donk wheels and is ready to put the power down better.

You did but I was stretching my funds to the max at the time. There was just no money for a stall.
most likely its just vacuum. didn't you already adjust the idle speed to be a little higher?

just an odd memory... my 94Z would idle around 520rpm in N and 480rpm in gear...

Talk to Ron, he may just work something out for you.
