Welcome to the forums! Starting to modify your car is as easy as an internet search. Plenty of suppliers ship your direction without too much cost. Are you looking for any parts in particular? Brothers Performance, CJ Pony Parts, Dallas Mustang, etc. all have great parts and follow up if necessary. It seems that price is the only downfall to this sport. Check e-bay as well as they may have some great deals for you.


This place makes me miss the days of the shop... sort of! and the information that I provide is based upon my experiences over the years and I do not profess to be any sort of pro any longer. I will do my best to help if I can and this constitutes advice only - no formal recommendations here unless I have just done the same thing to one of my rides in the past 6 months...

The other thing i notice is when i wake up to go to work, i start the car and it starts to idle...seems like the engines gonna die on me? it only happens when the cars been sittin for a while overnight. If the cars been sittin couple hours or so its normal...anybody know what that can be?

Just a guess, but could it just need a good cleaning of the throttle body? Seems like your problem is just happening on cold idle. If your idle air passage is clogging up or your throttle blade is gummed up a little it could affect cold idle quality. This is just a guess, though, but it wouldn't hurt to clean up your throttle body a little anyways.
