Fleet Farm by me no longer has it, and the BP that had it is closed for good. I'll look around work tomorrow.

Thank you, that's not far at all. I'll be stopping there either today or tomorrow, depending on how fast I can burn up the 1/3 tank I have left in there right now.

Cool Minnesota tuner? TPIS?

Ya U betcha. Can you guys recommend a good tuner in the twin cities? SLP said someone needs to turn off the circuit to the back O2 sensor to get rid of the error code from the SLP headers, and I may as well get this thing to go as fast as possible while they are at it.
Any experiences with TPIS in Chaska?

I know a guy that has his Trans Am worked on and tuned by TPIS and has good things to say about them. No personal experience though.

I think http://maverickmancarbon.com/ has some 90degree O2 adapters
that are supposed to get rid of this problem without turning the sensors off.

It moves the sensor out of the direct flow path but it's still able to read.

Me too, just backed her in and getting ready to put the cover on. Left a good patch on the side road near my house to look at everyday.

LOL, I agree. However now I'm not worried about wrecking it, or getting caught further into winter when snow hits and I havent even started getting right ready to be put away. AND I'm saving on insurance now with storage now being on it.

That still doesn't mitigate the risk of some other idiot sliding into my G8 during the Winter. Also I don't like the salt they put on the road, hard on our vehicles.

Mines been through 3 winters and 3 sets of Blizzaks, I know all about how great this car is in the snow.

My choice was $1k in blizzaks or $2k for a beater.

I chose the beater so I can slow down the milage on the G8. She went to sleep with 68,500 on her this weekend.
