S197's have a two-piece driveshaft and that can sound like a clunk in many cases, especially at low speeds when torque is applied. If that is what is happening, the only way to address it is to put...

I would be very careful as to whom you take it to, it is a bear to get all the shims in correctly and everything lined up. Also, when you do it make sure you use Royal Purple and/or some friction...

I have the Corsa Extreme axlebacks and they sound fantastic on my setup (stock on rest of exhaust). No drone at all.

2007 safe mode (wrench), codes 2135 and 0446

In the ongoing saga with my car going into fail mode (the wrench light) and sometimes throwing a MIL (engine light, mostly code 2135 and rarely 0446 as well), I've made some progress but am still...

Nope, this is a problem in the BEC under the hood (with the fan low-speed and high-speed relays), NOT the SJB in the passenger-side kick panel (which is the culprit in the water leak issues).

I've been trying to datalog to find the problem with my lack of power under load. The KNK_SEN_ADDER PID goes up (to 20?) each time I try to accelerate hard. It correlates almost exactly to the LOAD...

The coil/resistor mounted on the fan shroud takes the hi/lo signal from the ECM and either gives it straight 12v (for hi) or a dropped-down voltage (for lo). In my case, the connector corroded (it is...

I am at 107K or so. Have not ever done anything with the O2 sensors. Wouldn't they throw a CEL or code at least (my SCT X2 shows no stored codes). Also, would the Brenspeed tune I generally use...

Here's the strange thing - my mileage actually went up after 4.10s. You get better mileage in city driving IMO (2nd instead of 1st, 3rd instead of 2nd, etc.). Freeway is less mileage but a LOT more...

RE: How High an Octane Rating is Good?

There is no way the computer in a 2002 WRX does what the new adaptive knock-sensing/timing-adjusting algorithms do in the 2008 Bullitt. The technology just wasn't advanced enough.

Perhaps your...

RE: Which came first, the gas or the tune?

I'm not understanding your point. Clearly it makes a difference - let's see 2 @ 87 and 14 @ 91 works out to an average of 90.5. If your car is tuned for 91, you're only at 90.5, and it will therefore...

RE: Which came first, the gas or the tune?

If your tuner couldn't get any more performance out of higher octane gas, then you need a new tuner (I'm assuming he was actually tuning the car, not just running dyno slips). The higher octane...
