Well he didn't have to by that time I was going so fast he couldn't
accelerate as fast so he was way behind. :)
I figure I just had a serious build up of carbon and soot in the exhaust
from running it so easy, not getting on it hard. Once I got on it and really
blew everything out the car doesn't smoke as much as it first does, but then
over time it is back to smoking when I do get on it every once an a while.
It runs great still for having 30k miles on the terrible rebuild and no oil
pressure. LOL Matter of fact that last tank of diesel got me 48mpg.
I guess I just need to run it hard more often.
