Schweet...good stuff going on...Yes, the ZE is comming along swimmingly.

Currently I'm swapping the motor in my brother's '90 GT...motor still runs, but not too happy...ate one plug, low compression in two cylinders, and BIG oil leak....could have something to do with the compressor blade bits that went through it a few months ago

Brandon, I never see you on AIM anymore! 'Course i'm not on there a lot myself...cars and all. Good to hear about the motor, I'm jealous...but I've got a spare motor from the '90 to rebuild on the side.... .040 overbore among all the other goodies but that's a ways down the road...he's still got to blow the one I'm swapping in Oh, and the FMU...I could probably help.

Races... yeah, I think so. If for nothing else to get a time to see how it compares with my beloved 93. It only has a CAI on it, so maybe only able to run a 16.3 or 16.5. But as a daily driver, it's nice.

Where and When? I've got Ski Patroll Saturday, but I can be back in the valley by 6pm at the latest.

And yes, I'm up for it...dinner maybe? I know I'll be hungry. Anyplace is fine, Village Inn, Olive Garden...Squatters...Happy Sumo...California Pizza Kitchen.

v6

I just acquired an M-Edition this weekend. I had a 96 RS for a year until my sister totalled it about a month ago. I noticed that the RPM's seem to run higher on the V6 than on my previous 2liter, and being new to the V6 world I'm wondering if that's normal. What do y'all run around 80mph or any figures off the top of your head? Any replies would be appreciated. Thanks, Miller.

You're fine, the KL V-6 is a revver, you're probably around 4k rpm at 80 mph in 5th gear, and the acutual fuel cut is at 7,500 rpm. Don't be afraid to rev it, they're made for it.

And Welcome!!

Bill, I'll see if I can get a discount pass...I may be able to even get a free one And for Saturday, if everybody is up for lunch instead of dinner go for it...just take some pictures for me

Yeah, I've had a 6 since 1996, they all run high on the RPM's. They could sure use a 6th gear. But even at 4000 rpms in 5th gear, it still get 26mpg or better. It sure makes it nice for passing on the freeway, cruising speed on the freeway is in the kl's powerband!

It's nice to have another M edition in the club! Welcome! I'm looking forword to meeting you and your car! By the picture, it looks green... Is that right??

As for Saturday, it looks like I'll be redoing the timing belt on a 95 626 for a co worker of mine. But if anyone wants to swing by and visit, if nothing else to see the new place, and the new car, let me know. My home number is 801-955-3096, I live just off of Bangherter and 3100 South in West Valley. From Bangherter turn west on 3100 south, then make the first right. That is corbin way. Go all the way down the street nearly to the end. 2767 S Corbin Way. The MX-6 will be in the driveway, if it's sunny out the garage door will be open. If any one is interested in visiting, lets plan around 1pm.

actually the green one in my Avatar was my 96 RS. The M Edition I bought Saturday is in kinda rough shape inside, and there's no intake whatsover, just an open hose from the filterbox...there's some other things pending that the dealer will fix soon. But the best part is that I bought this Saturday afternoon and then Sunday night I headed up Provo Canyon for the first time and hit a deer. I did what I could to dodge him but it was a good sized buck and he rolled down the side of my car taking out the passenger mirror and pushed back the fender so the passenger door won't open. Aside from that there's a few dents from his antlers, but everything else is fine...I even talked a couple girls at BYU into going for a ride Dukes of Hazzard style (climbing through the window...)

Oh, that wasn't Pinky that I blew the motor across the Nevada desert...that was my '93 LS...after effects seen here:





Nice huh? That was cruising at 135 mph and 6200 rpm in 5th gear...Four holes in the block, one piston and rod later and a whole crap load of babbit and lead from bearings...yeah...

Pinky was only about 60 mph...and that was a Dodge Ram pulling a trailer that crossed the median on a snowy day:



And Bill, if you'll still be at it around 6 pm or so, or want to grab some food gimme a ring. 435-714-2714 I'll be done with patroll between 4pm and 5 pm.

No way.

Does your car have California plates? Did you blow past a red MX6 southbound on I-15 with a "Tire Rack" windshield banner the other night? Did that same red 6 then catch back up to you on 201, then turn left onto Bangerter in the lane next to you? Then the red MX6 turned right into the industrial park right after you get off Bangerter?
Did it have a blonde chick driving it in a big puffy white jacket?

I live just up the street from you on 31st south and about 50th west.



Maybe I'll stop by if I'm not too busy tomorrow.

lol... I was wondering if that was you. I didn't see the driver, but yeah... that was so me. My fiance told me I had to drive nice and couldn't race you.
I only went by you so fast on the I 15 interchange becouse I saw MX-6 tail lights and had to catch up. I just kept going when I did! ha ha ha. But yeah, that was me. What else do you have done to your car other than that ricer muffler.

Ryan, I wasn't talking about cars you blew up... I was talking the time we went to Bendover for the races... Maybe it was a green GT you had. When we chased down the Mustange GT. Mustang GT + Probe GT + MX-6 LS @135 MPH = Hell yeah that was fun!
