It seems Cali is enacting new laws for 2019! What else is new!! Z

Noisy is costly
Roads are to likely get quieter with a new noise law. That is the plan at least. Any owner of a car that features a loud exhaust or muffler system will receive a fine with no questions asked...

You must drive an electric car! Anything that makes noise is against the law!

Its bad enough dealing with Spam,but just received this latest update from Norton!! Z  :minigunner:
2018 was an exceptional year, since many large retailers experienced a data breach. Here are just a few examples:

Amazon   
Amazon notified customers
that due to a "technical glitch"
an unknown number of email addresses were exposed.

Newegg   
According to Volexity, hackers
accessed credit card data of
Newegg customers who
completed transactions from
Aug 16th – Sept 18th.

Chegg   
Hackers potentially accessed
the names, email addresses, shipping addresses, username,
and hashed password of
40 million users.

Under Armour®   
Approximately 150 million
MyFitnessPal™ accounts
accessed.

Macy's   
Hackers accessed Macy's
customers' first and last
names, addresses, phone
numbers, email addresses,
birth dates and debit and
credit card numbers with
expiration dates.

I spoke to a reliable source from Ford and adding or upgrading components not supported by Ford is highly not recommended! He would not go into further details. Z

Hi guys, yeah I'm not dead.  Just had a bunch of major changes.   First sold our first home, and a new one out in the country,  Now we have 3 acres of ground and no close neighbors and a little stream that runs in front of the house.  Well after 2 months in the new house, remember we had lots of ran in July, well we got some flooding which damage the bridge some and driveway.   It happened twice, yeah major stress.   Parents, family, friends came thru in a big way, with bringing us stone and equipment and just help to get it fixed.  Second was a big major decision on my part.  I left my job of 30 years, yeah.  After 30 years of night shift, my body was telling it was time.  So in August I started a new job, daylight hours.  I now work for WEIR SPM.  They service the oil/gas industry.  Right now I help reburbing iron, hope to move into the other part of the shop.  I would be learning to rebuild the power units on frac trucks.  I'll do this for couple years till I get the SHO paid for.  Kris has been so thrilled to have me home at night not sleeping.  I got depressed after a couple weeks on the new job, cause I saw how much family time I had missed over those many years.  I'm good now.   SHO got Livernois Corsa exhaust, sounds much better and quieter.  The old Dynomax's actually rusted out in the inside of them.  They are junk.  SO that's it for now.  Will try to get picks of the new house sometime.   Just the new hours, seems time goes by faster.

I was able to access and navigate through (Engineering Mode) in the Dash Display an 12.2 volts with the fairly new Odyssey extreme battery when compared to the previous Motorcraft BXT-65-850 which produced 11.8 Volts. Z  :)

Not sure why, but readings for VPWR we get are 0.5V lower than when actually tested at the battery terminals.  This is consistent.

So, actual voltage for the Odyssey should be around 12.7V (normal for AGM), and the Motorcraft at about 12.3V.  Normally, one can attempt desulfation with 10A charge from a smart charger that works with AGM batteries.  2A and 6A are too low apparently to rejuvenate sulfated batteries.
