This. If I remember right, the entire driveline needs to be replaced---crossmembers, transmission, driveshaft, maybe even the rear axle (though I have not looked into it that far). And if you want...

The "mix" position doesn't use A/C, does it? Anyway, I haven't had to use A/C in a few months, but it blew ice cold back then, and didn't affect RPMs more than A/C normally does. And it's not just...

Only mods I have are CAI, TB (I think 70 mm) / upper plenum, and canned 93 octane SCT tune. And I did clean the TB when I installed it, yeah. Anyway I found the reason I've never noticed this...

Surging throttle - 00 GT / 5-speed

I've posted about something similar before (RPMs hanging when I put the car in neutral) but never found the problem. Now it's gotten worse. My car has a regular throttle surge at all RPMs, as if...

Not disagreeing, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. I've heard stories of people using ATV or tractor batteries batteries, and I'd be open to that if they work. But the problem is, I don't know...

Wow...I knew the 2Vs don't respond to bolt-ons well, but I didn't know it was that bad. Guess I better start saving for a blower!

What's a realistic WHP gain from these for a car with only a CAI and tuner? I'm guessing that 20+ number was on a supercharged car.

Also does anyone know if there's any power benefit to running...

It sure sounds like an O2 sensor. I think you need a more specialized scanner to get the specifics on which one it is though. I would see if you can find someone near you who has an SCT tuner (or...

So the chassis itself is structured / shaped differently? I can't find any information about specifically where all the extra support is. Wish I could get my car up on a lift next to a coupe.

Did you buy that kit already? Personally I would spend the extra money on "name brand" arms. Lower control arms especially. The lower arms will fix the mushy ride a lot more than the upper ones. ...

Anyone know if new edge convertibles came from the factory with a front strut tower brace? I've seen lots of SN95 convertibles with them but can't find much info on the 99+. Mine doesn't have one.
