    Went to San Antonio cars and Coffee. Only 2 Holdens there. '05/06 GTO was the other. I doubt if I'll go back there.

    Yesterday morning I had to take the car up for state inspection. I decided to give it a bath before I went as it's been sitting in the garage since last November. On the way to the inspection station the check engine light came on and the car started to run rough. I pulled the code in the parking lot and it was 3001, cylinder 1 misfire. So, I went home to diagnose the issue. I checked the plug wires then swapped 1 and 3, same code. Swapped coils 1 and 3, same code. Swapped plugs 1 and 3, new code...3003, misfire cylinder 3. The sparkplug died. Really? Off the the parts story for a new set of plugs. I came home and changed the plugs and she runs like new. Unfortunately, by the time I finished it was too late to head back to the inspection station. What really gets me is there wasn't a car in line when I got there yesterday and when I go back on Monday, I'm sure, the place will be mobbed!

    Yesterday I finalized my plan for changing the exhaust behind the ARH X-pipe from 2.5" to 3" all the out. I'll start the transformation next week.
