Holy crap, reduced advance by over 25? That thing must have been a wee bit sluggish when you were driving with that chip.

Move to Alabama and quit worrying about it! I think your 944 will not pollute anywhere close to 1/2 the cars in these parts!

As a result of marrying your hot cousin, the off-sprng will end up posting messages on the 944 board very similar to the above!

Bob, okay geeez, honest mistake on my part, sweet home Alabama eh?
Don't take me to any trivia contest!
That's what I get for tryin to be nice, I will revert to making inane nosensical comments that no one can nail my butt on in the future.

Actually, CA is one of the only states in the union where you can legally marry your 1st cousin.

Gee, FR..

I posted my "thanks" to you precisely when this was being written apparently. Bad timing, but hey...a happy ending....

It amazes me that all the States (Cal, AZ and others) with smog testing also have "repair shops" right next door that adjust the engine so it runs like crap, passes emissions, then returns the adjustments to where the damn thing will at least run...Between the EPAs demand for cleaner engines and the manufacturers complaints that they can't do it, we, the drivers are stuck right smack in the middle. I have an auto repair manual in my collection from 1915. How little things have changed in the basics. Only more piping, duct tape, wires and sheet metal.

Oh, well.......
