For 1/4 mile - always turn OD off and TC off. Power brake to about 1800-2000rpm if the brakes will hold it.

100 lbs weight loss is roughly equivalent to .1 second

K&N doesn't mean there's a tune, they're not needed with a k&N. K&N's are for newbies, waste of money. If all they had was a cheap K&N, they didn't spend money for a tune. If stock filter and box is...

Those look like the power and ground wires for an amplifier, probably for a sub. I put a Kenwood head unit in mine and JL Audio amps in the trunk for all the speakers plus a trunk sub. I used the...

They squat more in the right rear under power because of the torque. That's why low dollar drag cars use an air bag in the right rear spring to pre-load that corner, and the high dollar cars use the...

Pick up a separator like a JLT or UPR, plug and play. No bluish smoke is a good sign, if it was a bad ring it would definitely smoke.
You might even have the original plugs in that motor, I'd...

unplug it and try to start the car. The PCM should default to the failed MAF table and by-pass the MAF transfer set in the tune. If it runs, that will show that the tune is incorrect

Agree with the above. Harder bushings and anything tubular will amplify and transmit noise. Pinion angle being off will cause horrible vibration.

The only octane booster that really works without gumming up plugs is Torco, but it is expensive.

The OP doesn't really need any booster anyway, the newer PCM's automatically adjust timing for the...

For max performance use the highest octane available in your area, no need for extra additives. And always use "name brand" gas, quality control is usually better from batch to batch.

I heated up the window with the hair dryer first before I did the repair. It was actually snowing when I did it. Worked fine. Defroster seems to be working better than it ever has now.
