Glad to see you got it sorted out. VE tables are going to affect driveability more than power. Should feel much better.

I wasn't surprised when I was informed that the HP was still around 350. Knowing the car is running better is a wonderful feeling.

thanks guys, I'm glad to have this project almost in the rear view :gears:

Went to "pick up" Barney yesterday. A short test drive ( yes... streets were somewhat dry and not too salty ) felt great. Gas pedal was modified/ repaired = feels like normal.
The idle is better and the reverse lock out it night and day from the modified spring.

Following the trailer home:


Thanks to Blackdog for the transportation :


And being unloaded:

I wouldnt say early... Early would have been the first set of pictures before any repair or repairs were complete.
The car is done and home and everything checks out.

With that said, no gloves were worn and I don't think it was heated :trump:

Yo Yo Yo Gav.... Do you notice a different viewership between your normal detailing content and other content, like Barney stuff?

I have about 10 or 12 videos that have done really well.... like 25K views and up. They are detail oriented.
I don't see many views on the Barney specific videos ( some of the detail videos only get 100-250 views too ). 1 viewer commented on the dyno video saying I should use the car for more content.
Not sure if he has seen some of my IG posts but he said the reason he found the channel is because the car is Bright Purple Metallic.

Since I don't have plans for any mods as of now and I can only "detail" it so much... I'm not sure if having the car in more videos will help the channel.

I've always debated this.... My wife has work IG and posts an irregular amount of personal stuff on there. She insists that people want to see it and the experts say you should. I will say when I follow channels sometimes I am okay with it and sometimes I think its just showing off, random, or just down right unrelated.

I think your use of Barney has been minimal, as you pointed out, and it is somewhat related so its probably good and that's why I was curious. I guess since your data is so up and down it really proves nothing though. LOL
