We will have to get together then. I'm curious to see what all is going on in there. It runs good, but I bet a decent tune would free up some power.

I dig the plate choice. Bound to catch the questioning eye of a gearhead seeing it on the Olds.

Definitely. I'm sure there's a good HPTuners tuner around here (I know one in Michigan). I can do a little bit on your stuff but I haven't researched too heavily into what it takes on a 3400 to do a fake 2-bar or 3-bar setup.

You could tell them you want one to memorialize your late friend Benjamin Dover

BENDOVR or BNDOVER

I know there's some decent tuners out here, I just never have got in touch with any. The Alero is such an obscure car to tune that I figured I would need to learn HPTuners on my own, and I just never got the urge to dive in with both feet. Feeling it a bit more lately...

back OT my other thought was TRBOLDS for Turbo Olds.

Post pics when you get your plate.

Doesn't WA still have it to where any car is only $35/year for registration? I wish we had that when I have to register my truck. I paid like $770 last year on a 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie 4x4.

And the plate I got on it from the 3rd party DMV (non personalized) was BNF1500 (Brand New F'ing 1500)

Managed to bring it full circle back on topic there

Oh nice. Even better then and that's not bad at all for 5 years. Yeah, I know exactly where that's at. Haven't been up there yet, but I have been out to Aberdeen. Nice and I don't blame you there. That's the one thing that would really turn me off about moving to Arizona is the heat. I'm not a huge fan of the heat being that intense during the summer. Even if it's not a humid heat lol.

I honestly couldn't tell you if they still do or not. I just moved up here from Tennessee back in October. So all of my cars were registered there prior to this. The only reason I have Washington plates on my Jetta is cause I bought it here, but I got the plates from the dealer when they came in so I won't know how much it's gonna cost to renew them until I have to later this year.

I do know though or at least I've heard that those living in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties get hit with an RTA tax when they renew their registration cause of Sound Transit. So I doubt it will end up being that cheap for me lol. $770? Ouch!! That's a little ridiculous just for registration. Geez...

Haha nice. I always find it interesting when non-personalized plates still end up spelling out stuff. Like I've seen ANY and a few others since I've been up here.

I remember seeing you post on j-body.org and gaownersclub.com way back, and I thought you had a red ecotec. But that appears to be a black 2.4

He had a red 2.4l and the body and trans were going south so he swapped the motor to a manual body that is painted a darker blue.

Bingo. Left the engine bay the original black. Exterior is a Ford Edge color, Dark Blue Pearl Metallic.

Yes, car's handling is comically good. I took a friend (who owns a performance shop that works on GTRs/Lambos/etc. for well known individuals) for a ride and he just laughed when we took some turns. It's crazy how good it drives. Far superior to my 1999 Subaru 2.5RS which had all the suspension mods too.

I'll post a thread soon as I get some photos tomorrow and give you guys the catch up story on what I'm up to and where the car's at and what's next.

Awesome!!! I was shocked at how big a difference the sway bars made... I'm glad you're happy with them as well!!
Can't wait to see what you've been up to lately!! Not much going on around here lately

Even so the car and shot you got still look great man!! I really do love the way that Ford blue looks on the Alero too.
