Yeah sure I realize they can be safe or danerous depending on the setup. I worded my question wrong.
Im looking for the safest, fastest, cheapest way to add HP without doing damage to the engine or the rest of the car and ive gotten in to a debate on weather or not nitrous will kill an...
Simple question....What size jets/shim do you use for a 150 shot on a Mustang with 19 pound injectors?
In general which would be safer and why? Supercharger/turbo or running nitrous?
IMO a sc or turbo would be safer, but Id like some opinions from someone who knows what there talking...
Thanks for the reply dogfriend.
Ive been doing my homework for the last few weeks. Looks like I may need to order what I want or do away with some of the options.
The only drawback I see about having to order the vehicle with the options I want is the time it takes to actually recieve the...
Sorry to dredge this thread up from the past, but have a quick question.
Say you have a certain vehicle picked out and your set on it. But none of the dealers near you have that vehicle with the options you want. The vehicle needs to be ordered.
Does your haggle tatic still apply when this...
I never really understood this.
Ive been pricing a few new vehicles on various websites, edmunds, MSauto, ect...
What is the difference between invoice cost and MSRP? MSRP tends to be the higher price. So which is the one you end up paying.
I priced a few cars with options and get two...
I test drove both cars again. Still having trouble deciding. :(
Anyone know of a Mazda board or Mazda 3 or 6 specific message boards? Im basicly looking for a good place like the Exploreforum only for those cars.
Thanks for the advice guys.
Later tonight im gonna test drive both cars again. Im swaying more toward the Mazda6 and the v6. :D But who knows.
The Mazda3 looks like it has more cargo space with the folding rear seats though?
Hey thanks. Ive test drove both cars and loved both.
The v6 is mighty tempting, however there is a price difference. I like the Mazda6 more of course, but... which has the better motor? Not speaking in terms of HP.
Im looking for a new car. Soon to marry and have kids.
I really like these cars but I cant choose. Advice or opinions would be much help.
The truck just aint big enough to be a family car and holding a baby sit, blah blah blah.
Yes im talking about the plug that connects to the computer.
My logic is, if the harness is dirty or whatever and is causing hard starts then the Apten chip wouldnt work properly.
Btw, cleaning the harness didnt work. We got a hard start last night. And the fuel pump continues to run...
My Explorer has a slight miss, it allways has. I can hear it from the tail pipe. Never anycodes and the only other problem at this time has been hard starts every once in a while.
So I assumed it was normal.
I removed the harness from the computer today. I then sprayed the connectors on the computer and also sprayed the wholes on the harness.
I remembered back last year when I installed the Apten Chip the computer had some gue on the connectors where the harness plugs in. So I cleaned that crap...
Well that is one possible cause.
However my brother or I dont want to mess around with that stuff. Ive checked the fuses and all look good. There is a chance that one of the wires could be loose, but I doubt it.
It's looking like we will never find the cause and could be very costly to...
