I'm John. I just started looking at vehicle mods. I got a Honda magna for better commute mileage in the summer. However last week my ride in to work has been roughly -2 to -5 at night and -9 to -15 in the morning, that's in Fahrenheit, it's average for this time of year. I plan on doing a grill block on a 2004 exploder today and see what that gets me. I hope it will help with cold feet and resistance. I commute 72 miles round trip.

Hi John! That IS cold!

Commuting that far I think makes for more satisfying results than urban ones.
It feels great to get big numbers.

I'm sorry it took this long for someone to say Hi!

Hi John, Nice to see another Maineac on board. I was born up Presque Isle-way, and still have family all over the state.

Good start on the Exploder, lots of tips all over the forum. Starting a gas log is another good start(hint, hint).


It is always very amusing how our imagination is put to the test when overcoming reality. Redyaris
