RE: performance questions

Cold Air Intake and Tune = Yes you could probably do it yourself with some basic hand tools (being a computer geek, you'd probably enjoy playing with the tuner and installing the tune)

RE: C&L CAI

The difference in all of these tunes is pretty much timing, fuel, transmission, and throttle settings.

Each tune (or tuner) designs tunes to perform specific tasks. A torque tune provides more...

RE: Seafoaming the v6

Sea foam is awesome!

That is, if you've got a bearing starting to knock, and you want to sell the car before the engine goes.

Of course, I can't completely knock Sea foam. They make a fuel...

RE: Turbo Questions

Somewhere between 80-150 hp.

Every power adder and ever drivetrain modification has the potential to be "bad" for the engine. It's the price you pay to play.

There's an old saying:

RE: strut tower brace vs . CDC Shaker system

Yes, it's mostly for show.


Why do people put lambo doors on their cars? Or hydraulics to make them jump 6 feet in the air? Or 4 foot tall aluminum wings?
That's why. It's called...

Strut Tower Brace. It's less of a waste of money. You don't have to ruin your hood (if you don't like the STB or future modifications require it's removal, you just unbolt it and pull it out... try...

RE: Turbo, H-Pipe?

I think you misunderstood me. If raw power is what you are after, then a turbo is the way to go.
Turbo's do not neccessarily sound ricey. Like I said, a turbo has a sound of it's own. Last year I...

RE: Turbo, H-Pipe?

Wow, I hope you have deep pockets. Have you ever actually driven a car with 390+ HP? It's a different experience to say the least. Be prepared to be nailed back in your seat.

With our 4.0's, 390...

RE: Turbo, H-Pipe?

No point in an "H" pipe with a single turbo kit. The turbo only has one outlet, you can run duals, but you have to install a "Y" pipe after the turbo to split the exhaust. Running the "Y" back into...

RE: running a 75 shot with 87 tune

If you want to try this, first go back to your stock tune. That tune **should** allow you to run the 75 shot without too much engine harm.

I would highly suggest putting the car on a dyno and...

RE: any sixers on the bottle??

EVERY power adder will shorten the life of your engine. Doesn't matter if it's a supercharger, turbocharger, or nitrous.

When it comes down too it, they all do essentially the SAME THING. They...

RE: CUSTOM TUNE vs. DIABLO/SCT TUNE

I had a tune from Bamachips (I think), that was a couple years ago.
My first run on that tune was 187HP, and after the custom tune I was hitting 195.

I only have my 195 dyno run, I can't find...

Do you have a stock exhaust? I had a problem where my custom exhaust was barely scraping the stock driveshaft. I'd only notice it when I hit a bump or accellerated really quickly.

Yes, your TB can freeze up. In the winter, the TB is only going to get so warm from the engine itself. Any moisture in the air, could condense inside the TB and freeze, making your TB stick.
