    Secondary air injection is for lighting of the cats primarily when cold. The pump turns on and injects air into the exhaust and helps light the cats. The system has nothing to do with the running...

    I only hear two shifts as well but I was thinking that they were launching in 2nd in manual mode. It sounds a little off after the launch like it is not at full throttle.
    As far as putting a...

    Well I have been thinking that you should just put the whole drivetrain in a C class hatchback with a wheelie bar in back.

    All o2 sensors read the same lambda. Everything is a conversion from that. So you can tune to gasoline afr values with e85. The afr is technically different but the actual voltage is the same. I...

    Man, the delay on the shifts is just unbelievable. Watch the driver hit the paddle and then wait for the shift.

    Those intake bolts get loose all the time from the factory. I have done a few under warranty.

    Pull your dipstick up while the engine is running and see if the whistle goes away. If it does you will hear a larger air leak for a second. The crankcase ventilation valve is...

    Guys, the Kleemann supercharger for the n/a engines. It is not a replacement for the 55k stock blower.

    I am curious. Are you shifting manually? Why not auto shift if you are?

    My system actually works fairly well. I am just trying to maximize it. My water temps are usually around 20-30 degrees above ambient after about a 30 minute commute to work or longer. There is not...

    Though I doubt that the modified a/c condenser is the best setup what I am getting at is applicable to any setup. I was trying to increase flow in order to reduce maximum temperatures at full load....

    Yes, that is correct. But only in part throttle to closed throttle conditions. It makes sense as I am not generating a lot of heat from the supercharger at that time. Then when going into high load...

    But slowing the water down in the exchanger lets the water cool more. This is why I was thinking that at low load the restriction should help but open up at high load and let the flow increase to get...

    Air to water intercooler. I have a spearco core with a single pass. I have modified a a/c condensor to a single pass setup so it is a large single row radiator basically now. What I am curious about...

    AIR/water water flow?

    So, I had a thought about air/water coolant flow. I recently changed my heat exchanger to a higher flow design that resulted in lower cruise temperatures for a while but still my water would heat...

    If you are talking about the factory warranty then it does not matter where you get parts installed. Your drivetrain warranty is pretty much in question no matter what when you put performance parts...

    Thanks Sticky and Even Money. I hope everything works the way I hope. The idea of going back to the dealerships again is a little much to bare.

    The price of the converter with no exchange is really pretty good then.
    As far as removing the valve body in an hour this is true but this is to remove the vb. I charge 2.5 for a valvebody with no...

    The control unit is simply bolted to the top of the valve body. Removing them both and sending them in is not a big deal. Remove the pan and remove the valve body. The issue for someone doing this...

    Are you spinning off the line? Have you tightened up all the clearances in the transmission? Getting rid of the slop in the clutch packs speeds up the shifts quite a bit, although it will be a bit...

    Are you sure that wasn't an 1/8th mile?

    Like the way the car is digging on the shifts.

    I agree with everything said there. But basically the intake is a short duration cam and the exhaust is still not going to be as long as a big n/a cam because lobe centers would get to far off. With...
