    Anybody know of a shop in the San Diego area that could dial in my suburban? I just threw a new crate motor in with a rebuilt q-jet and I need to get it dialed in. I don't trust the 16 year olds working at the shops around my house. Thanks

    I asked around but didn't find anything near you. What year is your truck? Computer controlled?

    there were some good machinists/mechanics at the clairmont mesa NAPA, over by the 52. it's near convoy blvd. i would go in there and ask them to recomend you someplace. I talked to the chief machinist and answered all my questions and gave some of his own (good)advice/suggestions.
    you may also try and reach BAJABLAZER, his up in that area too.

    ARQ.

    Well, thats a relatively easy engine to dial in. I could walk you through it or help you with it. I live in San Marcos right now, Blazer is down getting an axle swap finished. Do you have a timing gun and vacuum guage, maybee a few basic tools?

    Yes I do have a timing light but no vaccum gauge. I have a full arsenal of tools and am extremely mechanical but this is my first Chevy. I think my problem resides in the vaccum hose routing. I am not running the stock air cleaner and have no idea what to plug or or what to hook up. I will send you an e-mail.
