    4speed not shifting out of first.

    Well, I went for a cruise at lunch a few days ago after about an hour of driving, stop and go, some 45 mph cruising. I pulled into a court to turn around and while placing it into first gear, it seemed "too easy". I then tried to place into second and it would not budge. It took some jerking and...

And I was quite happy when I got it back, ran well but still not as strong as it was when I bought it, and I did get on it a little bit. So I park it...

Right now I have, as previously stated, the...

    safety concerns with Nitrous

    now, I just received my edelbrock nitrous kit in the mail today, as I was reading the instruction manual it suggested mounting in the trunk.
