Hey phantom. You said it would be the Frankenstein car. But you don't say those things about anyone switching to a LS1 V-8. Or the extreme lifts switching to 4WD.
My question to you is this. Do you really think a rare car collector is loosing sleep because I am going to do this? Or I am hurting the value of my totaled 3X, 250 thousand mile Safari? Is my chevelle a Frankenstein car to? I mean it going from small block to big block. Changing the wiring for an electric fuel pump and electric fan? You kill me with this stuff sometimes.
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
And I drifted so far off topic I wasn't even talking about the mouse at all anymore.
Yes you have
I was referring to the many multiple times that you have stated through the course of a year that you do not like the OBD computer system of cars today and that you would rather gut them and install an old style HEI distributor ,,,and for Most of the cars made during the last 17 years it would be far more costly to do that than to just simply properly diagnose a car and replace the parts that are faulty ,,
Because to try to replace the OBD system with an HEI setup would require so many parts that it would far exceed the cost of a normal repair with original parts .
Most everyone who swaps in a V8 engine is still retaining the OBD system and will ask which computer they need or if they need more sensors ,, knowing that they will need the OBD setup , It is a very rare occasion that someone actually goes back to '70's technology on a daily driven car ,, changing the suspension and all that has nothing to do with the OBD computer system and it is the computer system you always want to gut from a car ..
If you are to be really honest ,, MANY times in many threads you have stated that computers in cars is something you don't like and want to gut the car of the OBD system and go back tio HEI distributor of the 70's ,, many times you have stated that you do not want a computer in the cars ....so many times in fact that when you speak of gutting a car it refers to removing the computer system that you do not like ...what you do with your cars is not a concern for any collector .
As stated before if you have a car with an electronically controlled computer operated Transmission ,, to go back to the non computer controlled transmission will cost FAR FAR more than just replacing the failed sensor ,, or the BCM on most cars that have to have the computer system to properly operate at least 50% of vehicle electronics that are VIN # dependent ,, you seem to not know or forget that there is far far more involved than a fuel pump wiring ,,, :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
Yea if you want to stay with the $400 car for the rest of your life there are many cars that are old enough to not have a computer ,, but MOST people want to drive something newer than that ..
There is a big difference in a upgraded engine or simple mod , than gutting a car of its computer system and patching it together with outdated parts that are from an era that does not use a computer
