Well I'm no doctor but I'll give it a shot...:icon_nic:

The only reason a supercharger would burn out your catalysts is if the tune is waaaaay off. That shouldn't be a factor in most cases.

Both the Paxton and the Procharger are centrifugal...

I believe iTSX has an iOS version if you have an iPhone...not sure about the Mac issue specifically though. I'm using iTSX on Android and it works great! You might try Steeda's tunes for life too. ...

Glad you found it!

A dirty MAF would usually read low on air flow, so the car would inject less fuel, and therefore run lean of target. It may not have been running lean enough to throw a code,...

My car is a stick, and I was amazed how much difference it made. Not sure if I'd bother on an automatic.

With a higher mileage car, one good thing to check is the fuel filter. I had a problem like that in a different car and that's all it was.

If you haven't replaced your PCV valve (or installed a...

On some tuners, you can disable the adaptive trims. Not sure if that's an option on your tune, but it might be worth asking about.

:icon_attention:

For a short burst, it's great. But higher operating costs and some risk from stuck solenoids providing nitrous and/or fuel when you DON'T want it is a trade off.

Love mine...and +1 on a very easy install. Remarkably so actually.

Those disconnected O2 sensors are probably not helping the MPG, so hooking those up would be wise. They're also important for...

Well, I'll be the dissenting voice and recommend a TB and tune. For results, see the "Rounds" in my signature.

That said, the SOUND of new mufflers is a lot of fun too. Maybe not that much...

First...welcome!

If the cabin air filter was all mucked up, maybe some of that got in the fan and is holding it up? IIRC you can get to it from under the passenger side dash.

As to mods, as...

If there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it, the first two things that come to mind are (a) bad fuel - try adding some HEAT or StaBil and/or (b) bad battery. I had a battery in a different car...

On the Steeda CAI, there's a really good seal to the inside of the hood. Below the "airbox" there's a chute that pokes out toward the front of the car. Not ram air per se, but if you watch your...

The easiest way to check and see if it's a wheel bearing is to jack the car up and turn the wheels one at a time. Often times you'll feel it more than hear it if a bearing is really blown out.

Magnaflows here...but I have the 3" pipes from the cats back to the mufflers, which I'm not sure if they make anymore. IIRC the other Magnaflows are 2.5"
