    Mustangs and Nitrous

    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...

    Mustangs and Nitrous

    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...

    how to haggle on new car prices?

    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...

    how to haggle on new car prices?

    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...

    Mazda3 or Mazda6

    Yeah right now the 6 seems more logical for us right now for various reasons. Thing is, im considering trading in the Tundra for a 4door Tacoma now. I cant make up my mind. :(

    Stupid question about pricing new vehicles

    Thanks guys I found alot of good info. So $500 below invoice is a general range in which the average car buyer pays? I just hate haggling with the sales person. :( Thanks again guys.

    Stupid question about pricing new vehicles

    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...

    Mazda3 or Mazda6

    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

    Mazda3 or Mazda6

    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?

    Mazda3 or Mazda6

    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.

    Mazda3 or Mazda6

    Mazda3 or Mazda6

    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. Thanks

    The haunted Explorer

    Yup the 95 is OBD1. I'll look into the timing thing and the MAF, although the MAF is fairly new.

    The haunted Explorer

    I have access to a OBD-1, but Im no good with it. Scanning for codes has been done numerous times, and none were found. This is one of the reasons it's so difficult to find the problem of course.

    The haunted Explorer

    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...

    The haunted Explorer

    No, im saying if the computer harness was dirty and causing hard starts wouldnt the Apten Chip not work? Or there would be other symptoms.

    Engine Missing

    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.

    The haunted Explorer

    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...

    The haunted Explorer

    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...

    NOLOGY Hotwires

    I would consider buying a set but the price is extremly high. Even if the set gave you a 4% increase in HP, I dont think it would be worth it?
