Seen Phil post about it, and I was ",hey wait I know that shopping mall!"I like the show if I know 3-4 people there, I know the Stoll family and they hit up every show.
It was always cruise night on Harlem!They have a cruise night on Mondays at Harlem and Foster during the cruising season. You and your co-defendant should head over there one week.
Iggy’s was great, had several sets of headers installed and exhaust systems. Good guys.I miss that area, man..
First cat delete and cutout thing, they made for me. I walked to rex deli and got a sub sammich while I waited lol
More south. Near Belmont... And the "cafes"It was always cruise night on Harlem!
Not sure, its strange. Booster and master are both brand new, we replaced while doing the blower as I had the wrong master on it.
We had an issue in the shop today, turned out the vacuum line to the booster had a plug still in it. We removed that and bled them again.
While making the pulls in the alley it had a good pedal and was stopping. Pulled it off the flat bed at the exhaust shop and I pedal was spongy and the brakes were barely grabbing. Feels like a vacuum issue to me
I’m not sure, I’ll have to look at that. If there isn’t, should there be and is it something i can add?That would be my guess too.
Is there a check valve in the booster to keep it from seeing positive pressure?
A lot of the vacuum fittings going into them will have those.
Yeah they're easy to find. Like I say, it's pretty much standard issue but if it doesn't have one and you put boost to the booster maybe it's bound or ruptured so it's not able to assist.I’m not sure, I’ll have to look at that. If there isn’t, should there be and is it something i can add?
I cruised Harlem a lot in the 90s until they cracked down.More south. Near Belmont... And the "cafes"
At least what I remember.
Or people used to meet at Cumberland and Lawrence... Lol super convenient for me because my grandmother was off of Lawrence and overhill.
I’m sure a few of us did as well, I know I’d did, was up their nightly seeing I lived so close.I cruised Harlem a lot in the 90s until they cracked down.
LOL, I wasnt driving.
The guy who helped me and who's shop I used talked to his tuner (AJ Performance I believe) who gave us the start up tune and asked if he could give us something to get on it a little to seat the rings. He said for a price he could give me tune remotely that will be safe, well why didnt you say that the other day dumb fuck, smfh. So did a couple of drives (no boost) up and down Madison while logging. Sent them over, he revised them and then said go do some quick half throttle pulls. Did a few 1/2 throttle pulls, logged them, he revised and asked us to do a couple of more. Revised it again and she is now on a very safe tune. Cant do any WOT pulls yet but I can get on her a bit.
Having an issue with the brakes though. They just dont feel right so my guy is borrowing something to measure vacuum once its done at exhaust.
I didnt want to blow off the exhaust appointment as its about a 2 week wait to get in at Iggy's. I want the exhaust done just in case Jr at Sammys calls and says bring it over for the rear end.
Where. Is. The. Sound. Clip?!Exhaust is done and that MFer sounds all kinds of rowdy now. The difference in going from 2.5” to 3”, adding the X pipe and going from Flowmaster 40’s to Super 44’s is insane. It’s on my guy Juan’s flat bed and heading back to the west side so we can figure out my brake issue tomorrow.
It was pouring out, I’ll try tomorrow. But a video isn’t going to do it any justice.Where. Is. The. Sound. Clip?!
Yup, Pete is still there. I kinda got the feeling that he owns the placeCongrats I bet it sounds great. There used to be a guy who worked at Iggies, he'd be older, I want to say Pete? He did exhaust for me in the past.
Okay, well he acts like he owns it lol.Could be, I think the Demos family owns it.
She home but not without an issue. Broke down as I was getting on the EOE from 290. Had my Streamwood tow guy get me home.
Thinking cam or crank sensor. Pulled it off the flatbed and she fired right up lol. Gave her a bath as well.
