  1. I had not set up email notification on some postings and since my time is limited and I am very stressed out with the move I just pop in and look around once a week or so. I have been getting short with a few people on another forum and that is never good. I also may be away from a PC for a few days and then that leads for more fuel to the fire.
  2. Hey guys I am relocating to Charlotte. I have been MIA. Once I get to Charlotte and settled in I will be back 100% This is a long move and will take some time.
  3. HP vs 1/4 mile calculator Your DHS weighs about 4400 pounds and can complete a 1/4 mile in about 14.7 seconds. That means that you've got about 273.77 HP at the wheels, and about 355.90 HP at the flywheel. Not so bad from a 275 hp engine
  4. Not so bad for a 2003 DHS. Stock was a 16.1 6.308 60' 9.597 1/8 @76.03 14.7 @ 94.8 MPH

  6. If you have an open in the brake lamp circuit you will get ABS and a TCS messages. It the Center High Mount Stop lamp circuit is open you will get the ABS & TCS messages. Depending on the cars wiring it may just be a turn signal or hazard switch problem. I don't have a 96 book with me.
