I would imagine 1.5-2 hours tops one way.

I'm located off the 10 between the 605 and 57 so I'd be more than glad to join you along the way! I just signed up to volunteer this morning as I just found out I'd be able to make it!! Basically I hve no clue what time I need to get there by haha.

03-08-2010, 05:45 PM
What's the speed limit? 75 or 80?

Sounds like I need to leave at 7am to make it.

Eponator, I'll PM you. Where would be a good place to meet up in your neck of the woods?

I'm also happy to pick up the caravan along the way! I'm coming from Whittier, so I'll probably be taking the 210 as well . . .

If your coming from Whittier, you should just 605 north to the 10 east. No reason to come up to the 210 then back down to the 10. Eventually the guys from the valley have to go to the 10, so maybe another meet point on the 10 would work best for you.

If you're going to be heading down to the 10 then there are a couple good spots off the 10 to meet up most notable the eastland center, plenty of room incase you're bringing a trailer. There are several gas stations along the way to meet up at as well.


I'm also happy to pick up the caravan along the way! I'm coming from Whittier, so I'll probably be taking the 210 as well . . .

Comming from Whittier would be best to just take the 10 East all the way down. No sense in driving up North to the 210 only to head back down south to the 10 again. Feel free to send me a PM if anyone is interested in caravanning, I can leave whenever, early morning is no big deal for me :D

Basically what he said haha. It was funny bumping into ya on the 605 last Sunday!! I take it that was your wife waving out the window? Props!! :wink:
Oh hey you get that step working properly? Let me know if you need a hand with it, my house isn't too far from your warehouse.

lol, yeah the 10's closer, but if we can get a convoy going, I'm willing to do my part! :waytogo:

So let's plan to meet at Ranaldi/Balboa foe the guys in SCV/SFV.
Maybe eboteilho (http://www.socaps.com/../member.php/6104-eboteilho), optx002 or eponator could pick a second stop along the 210. Probably around 6:45 to 7am.

The step works fine. I have it down because my veg kit system hangs low and hit the step when its up. So when im running veg, it vibrates and gets annoying after awhile. So when i run veg, i usually keep the step down from vibrating.

There's probably enough of us in SGV to simply take the 10 out, rather than going up to the 210. I'm not sure yet what time I'll be leaving, but I'm guessing around 7 or 7:30. People in Whittier, Covina, etc., could all meet up off the 10 at IN-N-OUT at Barranca. There shouldn't be anybody there that early in the morning, so parking should be fairly easy.

What time do sign ups start for the dyno? I almost don't want to run on the dyno. I may end up depressed for the rest of the day!

If I run, I want to go before you. You'll probably break it and ruin the fun for everyone else.

Bummer, and I bet there's no room to move the veg kit a little huh?? Explains why you have it that way haha, I thought it was malfunctioning :P

They open at 10 IIRC so parking shouldn't be a problem at all. You can't miss it comming down the 10, big IN N OUT Sign right next to the exit. I'm game to meet there K5, what time would you be arriving so I know when to meet? Its a 15 min drive from my house...

Don't feel bad Scav... I'll be dynoing my 5.4 if I have the chance... that should make you feel much better about your numbers :redface:....

I'm almost positive I know where this In-N-Out is, and since I'm an early riser, I've got no problems meeting anytime! I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone! :yay:

At this point I'll be happy if I can make it there and back in one piece...

Cyl 8 COP gave out on me this morning and its more economical for me to grab all 8 online instead of through parts places... Crossing my fingers they get here by Friday...

How does 0730 sound? We could then wait around to see if anyone else shows and leave there by 0745. I think I might create a new thread for SGV to Fontana.

7:30 sounds great to me.

Thanks for the suggestion, I was intending on purchasing 8 cops from Sunrise on Saturday and install them during some downtime at the event before but now my hand is being forced... I ended up picking up just one coil and replaced the faulty one in hopes of making it Saturday.

The engine now turns over smoother and the keyless ignition is working properly again (something it hasn't done since the new injectors 3 weesk ago but I've suspected 1 if not more coils were on their way out for a while) The truck is still just a little shaky, wreaks of unburned fuel, and the exhaust is putting out puffs of white smoke, but not a steady stream... I'm hopeful its not the headgasket but of course that doubt lingers in the back of my mind...

I'll be testing the remaining coils this afternoon after work although the CEL is only indicating Cyl8... Hopefully I can get him working right again in time...

Thx,
