i don't know about in s-10's but the speedo cable in my nova made an awful sound when it was could, it was a little rattle behind the dash. Just had to keep the RPM's up so the dual glasspacks would drown it out

damn. my uncle totally built his engine himself, but sold it before i really got into cars/trucks, so i dont know much about it. i was going to buy it from him when i turned 16, but he sold it before i could buy it.

i don't know, i never fully tuned it cause i didn't want to break the bottom end. BTW i never did have it dynoed, should put that, my friend had a similar setup and got 600 hp at the flywheel, so i was just guessing

how about we get back on to kevins question, there is a reason i have a blazer now not a nova

well if its at idle its not going to be the speedo cable anyway, and when i get low on trans fluid, assuming auto, it just takes more rpm's to get it moving when its cold, otherwise i couldn't see how
