Q: i have a 94 ram 318 w/at. i was considering installing the dodge performance chip actually it is the whole computer. it is my understanding that the 94/95 had a good deal less hp and torque then the latter models so i was thinking about upgrading the computer. i can get it from the dealer for about $250. i have heard horror stories about upgrading the computer. first you have to use only 93+ octane gas or a octane booster. second you cant tow anything or carry a load with it. third even if you install the computer yourself you still have to take it to the dealer to have all the warning lights reset. if anyone has first hand experience with the factory performance chip i sure would appreciate any feedback that you might have. thanks. ken .

what in the hell are you talking about miles i am talking about the gun owners not the damn store. if you own a gun or an arsenal of them as some in here seem to do and a gun is stolen and used in a crime and it was not properly secured then the owner should be held partly responsible. if you feel the need to own such a thing you should take the responsibility for doing so. as for the store or dealer not following procedures i agree with you 100%. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving tbone wrote i agree completely. gun control should not be stopping people from buying guns but setting up a system that allows for holding the ones buying them responsible for their use. thats absurd. the only case in which a store should be held partly liable is if they did not follow current laws in selling the gun that was used in a crime. but they wont be liable for the crime itself. still the punishment for deliberately failing to follow procedures should be harsh. .

budd cochran wrote whats unproven about it there is no one alive today that can testify to observing either creation or evolution. your beliefs are not proven budd. you believe them. that does not make it fact. the miracles you speak of as written in a book have never been proved. very little in the bible has been proved. the characters are probably real. there is no proof that the bible isnt just a history book written by man with a few liberties taken. none the less you are free to believe as you wish. you go too far trying to tell us its fact when its just what you believe to be fact. .

budd cochran wrote do you have tests in schools then there is prayer in schools. im not sure what your connection between tests and prayer is. i look back now and the prayers were quite wimpy and generic. they were most likely christian oriented. thats how my school was. any such prayer should be kept private since its a personal thing. i have no trouble with religious groups gathering outside of normal class time on campus. i do not think you would have liked to sit through prayer that was non-christian in nature. some school boards dont allow even that. bible study groups on campus are denied. depends on the city it seems. the problem is that using the campus is at the cost of tax payers. they should not have to pay for such use. in those cases i have seen religious groups pay to rent the school buildings for their use. i dont have a problem with that. you would most likely if it were a religion such as some sort of devil worshiper groups. who defines what is a valid religion and what is not for the purpose of allowing organized meetings on public property i do have a problem with unproven theory being taught as proven fact. i havent seen evolution big bang etc. taught as fact. ive only seen things that have been found presented and theories as to what it means. i do have a problem with the religion of humanism being taught in schools. i do have a problem with the religion of evolution being taught in schools. then you should have equal problems with christianity being taught in public schools. so you do dislike certain beliefs . . .that explains a few things. sure i dislike certain beliefs but i respect ones right to believe the way they choose and i do not tell them they are wrong for doing so. i do not tell them theyre a lesser person for doing so. .

unless they are also at maximum load they are overinflated. we are not talking about passenger car tires here. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving the key is overinflated. the tires are not over-inflated; they are inflated to spec. on tue 3 oct 2006 140914 -0400 roy roy@home.net wrote your idea is sound but will be harder on equipment because of the gearing change. another way to save gas is to buy load range e tires. these tires can be inflated to 80 psi and then you will have less rolling resistance with the same gearing. i believe the 80 pounds is when the truck is loaded to its max. operating at 80 pounds m/t isnt going to put much rubber on the road and the truck will ride hard as hell imo. roy while it is true that 80 psi is required for max load capacity there is benifits from increase average presure from reduced rolling resistance which can improve mpg. the only real draw back is a stiffer ride on a bumpy road. tread design and profile plays a roll here too. a 83 series tires like a 235/83/r16 e will have less drag and rolling resistance than a 70 or 75 seris. it is also about 1 inch taller than a 245/75/16 too. finailly the tread design itself plays a roll too. a smooth tire with little or no cleats will consume less power than one with a meaty tread. look at a semi tire sometimes genrally unless you are carry enough weight to need it there is little or no gain in mpg with pressure over 55 to 60 psi so even a d range tire running at or near max pressue will roll nicely with a smooth tread. ----------------- theassholeman.com well well look what crawled under the door. tired of spreading false info at the other group and decided to drag your ass back here first you have a few questions to answer from the last time you were here. you remember them dont ya or are you here for another reason i figure there is another reason. your sig looks good. oh you didnt address the stopping issue with over inflated tires. care to take a shot .

you know i have lived on the gulf coast florida panhandle for about 20 years now and only recently did i hear on some program or another that all fuel dispensed along this corridor comes from a single refinery. then these guys with different names soup up the product with this or that to give it a unique identity that they can claim. now im an old fart and had never heard this before but it explains a lot about the how and why of pricing of gas. what amazes me here in pensacola is that texaco can charge 1.79 on one corner and circle k will charge 1.70 and except for the additive package we are getting the same gas. just got back last thursday from a conference in vegas and was paying $1.81/9 for regular unleaded. hurts. got gas today here in pensacola for $1.59/9 -- pcolaphil for direct contact remove spamnot. even if you are on the right track you will get run over if you just sit there ---will rogers | plain and simple there is no competition in the oil industry the same people | drill own the wells own the refinery and own the stations. all the | transporters go to the same refineries to pick up product doesnt matter if | its shamrock shell arco or exxon or your fathers moustache brand | its called rocket feathers the price rockets up and feathers down | | | chaos confusion and trouble!!!! | my work here is almost done | | .

i think you have the key in your last paragraph. you might be able to beat the efficiency of the cruise control while paying very close attention to throttle control essentially becoming a better cruise control than the one in your vehicle but over the long term you could never keep this up very long. so in the real world i would still give the cruise control the nod but still your experiment was interesting... i wouldnt have thought it would be that easy to beat it especially on level ground. don d. wrote i have been reading the discussions about gas mileage with and without cruise control and i always thought that you got better mileage with cruise control. i conducted a short unscientific test and came up with the following ram 1500 with 4.7 engine and auto transmission. there is a 2.1 mile flat circle around a mall here in sunrise fl. i drove around the circle at 32 mph with cruise control on and got 22.3 mpg on the indicator. without cruise control and trying very hard to keep the same speed i got 23.1 mpg. both trips there was no traffic and i was able to hold the speed more exact without cruise control. with c/c on i could feel the little surges and coasts and this is probably responsible for the increased mileage. i know that this might not translate into the same results at 70 mph on a highway but i think that it might. cruise control is handy and i will continue to use it on the highway but i think that i could get a little better mileage without it. the trade-off would be that i would have to really pay attention to my foot on the gas pedal and concentrate. don d. .

nj average price for regular is $1.73. today on the they ran a feature about the gas stations on the nj turnpike. their franchise agreement only allows them to raise the price once per week. the prices were frozen at $1.52 per gallon until tomorrow. it will be raised to $1.73. needless to say i was on my first gas line since 1973. with the dodge gas guzzler and 35 gallon tank i can save $7 if i save .20 per gallon. btw i shut off the engine while waiting in line. .

roy wrote gee sounds just like that pillar of decency foley. foley is scum but at least he quickly resigned. unlike democrat studds who fought like hell against far worse crimes committed all the while blasting reps for going after him. please miles your bias is so heavy it really makes me laugh. he resigned because he is a homo child molester and got caught outright there was nothing political about it but what about the speaker of the house. he is lying threw his teeth and refuses to step down. i guess that the right is every bit as bad as the left and in this case much worse. .
