So I was having something like a limp mode situation at high speed/RPM  for about a week.
After pouring over the tune and looking through the engine bay and checking all connections. I saw 2 things. The TPS and Airload would both drop in the logs when ever this happened.  I Finally blew a MAF DTC, so I cleaned that and also did the harness connector and the maf connector with Electronic cleaner. 
Did a 4th gear pull into triple digits with no issues tonight

It was 70 degrees, tonight

LOL
Where I live there is no uphill roads at all. Once I start driving I have to literally go around the entire world to get back where I started.
Or so someone would say.

That's a slick license plate holder, it's just a shame you have to have one at all.
Love my State for that.

Thanks elff! :D

In Germany you need a front licence plate all over the country.

They even have a law that the bottom of the plate has to be 20 centimeters above the road. :banghead:

Just took my Saturn out of its winter sleep.

Wow the battery is still working after all these years. :yay:

I had to change the battery of all  my German cars after a few years.

Ironhide,

I had a really busy work week a little while ago, and was recently in your country. 
I spent 3 days in Tettnang and 2 days in Essen for work before flying home.  As it was my first time, I kind of went with the flow, but next time, I plan on doing a little more non-business site seeing.  Are you close to Tettnang as that is in lower germany?
I have to say it was the best business trip I ever had and the German people were super friendly everywhere I went. 
I am hoping I have to travel there at least a couple times a year.

Elff,

Tettnang is 7 hours away from my hometown. :D
Hude is in Lower Saxony which is far in the north of Germany.
Driving from Tettnang to Hude is like driving from Chicago up to Madison Wisconsin.

Looks like you are about 2.5hrs from my company's Essen office.
