Re: Where do you take your HAWK for an OIL CHANGE?

If you use the extended drain intervals, synthetic is cheaper. I use mobile 1 oil and filter except...

Depends upon the year. 94 used the original shocks, even if had the suspension package.

Re: replacement tires for 2002 firehawk

I think the wide ovals wear too quickly. I have some bridgestone re760's that seem good, so I would recommend them.

Re: Cam for stock headers

The little mods don't do much (even when added together) and end up costing alot. I would plan out your car's future and work on that. Save up for a good cam setup, head work and tuning. But don't forget the rest of the car.

Re: lets hear it

Remove the cat to make it louder. If you do replace the muffler, I would be interested in it.

Re: 1994 Firehawk misfire/detonation

also try using the stock coil. I have seen bad aftermarket coils that were weaker than stock, even though they were supposed to be better.

Re: aluminum or steel flywheel???

I think this has been talked about before, but here are my thoughts. First thing I would do is get the weights of each flywheel and see what you are really looking at. Too light will make you rev more to move the car. The revs will increase more easily in NEUTRAL, but not so much while in gear, beca...

Re: sub frame connectors

Because after you sell it, you never know what the "next" guy wants or doesn't want on it. If I was in the market for a collectable vehicle years down the road, I'd want the option to revert it back to showroom stock, and anything permanant would make it that much harder, thus less desirable for me...

Re: sad day for pontiacs.

I don't know why they are fighting it. They should have declared bankruptcy long ago since they will emerge stronger from it rather than fighting to stay the same. They need to kick the union out and completely restructure their dealer network.

Why would anyone ever want to remove them? With the welded ones, you don't have to worry about them coming lose.

Re: sad day for pontiacs.

What all the American car companies need to do is walk out into their parking lot and fire everyone that didn't support what their job made. I can't feel sorry for them as they show no confidence in what they are making. Kinda sad. I think this would be a horrible idea. Let people choose what they ...
