    I suppose it will depend on enforcement. Based on this from the linked article: "basically if your tires rub the bodywork, or anything but the tires rubs the road, your car is now illegal." How will...

    Does it consistently give a misfire on cylinder 3 (P0303), or does it sometimes show up on another cylinder (P030n)or random cylinder (P0300)? I would probably start by inspecting plugs and wires...

    I have no complaints against the Yukon gearset in my 10 bolt. I assume by 8.8, you are indicating that you have a 10 bolt rear with an 8.5 or 8.6 inch ring gear. The only 8.8 inch GM axles I'm aware...

    FWIW, I remember my old Ford BII had this kind of set up (system was designed to run at 40 psi). I thought it worked just fine. Ford's system actually used 2 pumps -- a low pressure pump inside the...

    What kind of no start/hard start are we talking about here? Is it the kind where you turn the key and nothing happens, or the starter seems to turn with great difficulty? Or is the kind of no...

    Do you know if the u-joint have been changed before? What is your overall DIY level? IMO, U-joints are not that hard to change. The factory U-joints were installed with a nylon retainer that has to...

    Did the fuel pressure ever rise above 55? On mine, fuel pressure tends to run between ~60 psi and ~65 psi. If your fuel system never gets above 55, even though it seems like it should be enough to...

    What is your skill level at DIY auto service? What sort of repair manual do you need? How much are you willing to pay for a service manual? I find the Chilton's or Haynes DIY manuals to be adequate...

    One thing I would do: pull codes. If something like an ICM is getting damp and shorting out, it could trigger a trouble code in the computer that may help you narrow down the diagnosis.

    When I had mine completely rebuilt, I don' recall a specific break in period. If there was a short, 500-1000 mile break in period, it was mostly for the new Ring and Pinion and not so much for the...

    A P0300 can be caused by anything that can cause a misfire. A leaky manifold gasket where the leak somehow interferes with combustion could cause this code, though it doesn't seem to be a common...

    It sounds more like something electrical. If the CKP code is not going away, I would work through the diagnostic tree for the specific code you are getting. If you can get a hold of a good manual...

    Did replacing the CKP resolve the CKP code? I had mine stall once when the wire going to the CKP fell out of its harness onto the exhaust manifold and burnt through. Codes by themselves do not tell...

    I think the first thing I would do would be to put a fuel pressure gauge on it and see what the fuel pressure is when it stalls/won't start.

    In addition to having the FPR get stuck closed, a restriction/plug in the return line would cause excessive pressure.

    I would be tempted to safely attach a fuel pressure gauge and monitor pressure...

    from 2000 to 2500 rpm is a 25% increase, so you would need a 25 decrease in the gear ratio (0.9 to 1 units). That means going from 3.73 to 4.56 or 4.88.

    It sounds like you are unwilling to go with...

    1800 rpm to 2400 rpm is about a 1/3 (33%) increase, so you need a 1/3 lower (33% lower or 1.3 ratio change) gear ratio. That would be 3.73 to about 4.88, maybe 5.13. Remember that you have to regear...

    First thing I'd probably do is rule out a fuel system issue. Test fuel pressure and see if it is where it should be.

    1st main concern I would have you consider -- have you verified that your current diff is a conventional open diff and not the G80?...
