    Hi Ken,

    The deal fell trhouhg, but I will probably be buying a new unit from John. I'll make a dealk with you. Teach the ways of the Jedi Master and you can use it. My brother lives in Durham and on several occasions before my accident. Frank Barnhill and I got together and worked on our cars in his garage.

    I really want to do this. Can you give me a sense for how much you typically spend to do a weekend like this?

    Where do you usually stay up there? I assume I need to get a full face helmet and get the car "checked" by someone before I go?

    Yo Ken-

    I'm in Cary on Apex border. Let's do a beer and share notes. My shark is down at the moment while I refresh Vacuum lines. I'm in town most of this week if your free.

    Looks like Jon B from Linden is going to be coming up to WakeZone tomorrow morning. Says he'll be up a little before 9am. I'm planning on being there around 8:30am for coffee and hanging out to meet him.

    If I understand you question, on an '88 auto, there is a Wide Open Throttle ( WOT) kickdown switch behind the gas pedal. When you floor the gas, this switch is engaged, and the transmission shift pattern is altered to that it holds off on upshifts and also down shifts much more aggressively. Many people, myself included, have jumpered into that switch behind the pedal and added a second, manually activate switch that we can engage without flooring the gas. Gives the same benefits, namely much more aggressive shifting. Often called a kickdown bypass switch.
    I has seen conversations that this also affects the fuel injection mapping, but I can't confirm that.

    Ok, since I MIGHT be picking up an '88, I have to ask the first of many stupid questions: where is the manual kickdown switch, or is that not a stock item? Thanks,
