About “The Intimidator”

I saw one of these cars on the road and decided then and there that I had to have one. I found out there was a "Dale, Jr. Edition" too, but I like the look of the black and silver combination better than the red and silver. The blue and silver "Jeff Gordon Edition"? Who cares?

About “The Cannon”

Car started out as a $1400 pile. I found that out when i was changing the fluids. Excellent learning experience though. Now nealy $3000 later it runs like crazy. The reason it cost so much was after the new trans and rebuild, the chain tensioner broke and parts of it went through all the oil galleys and the pump along with all the bearings. Found out that a few simple mods include disconnecting egr valve sensor. Check Engine light comes on though. Also on the maf sensor there is a honeycomb screen. remove it by carefully prying out the snap ring and then pushing it out from the back.
