    plug wires please help

    i would change your plugs when you change your wires, it makes life a little easier. i chose magnecor kv85 8.5 mm wires, and i have had no problems and they have a great smooth idle and smooth revs.

    Air intake idea

    i managed to run a flexible 3" stove pipe into the end of the filter and then down below the bumper to get some cool air, works pretty well.

    Bilstein Ride Quality

    definitely an improvement over stock. the ride is not as bouncy, much firmer. i noticed the biggest difference on the highway. i used to hit a bump and go up and down for a few seconds, now i hit the bump...and thats it. well worth the money.

    kicker comps or Infinity kappa perfect

    bad mileage (with mods)

    yes i have, but on some tanks i have tested my mileage by trying accelerate at a normal rate, and drive around 60 on the highway, and 45 on main roads. at best i get 16mpg, which still sucks.

    bad mileage (with mods)

    ive got a 2.25 mandrel cat back exhaust, kkm, bosch plugs, magnecor wires, and i get 15mpg, maybe 17 on highway. that sucks its the same as i got before i did the mods. i have reset the ecu, no change. any ideas? is it normal and im stupid?

    hooking up stereo in a house?

    well i guess to be more specific, his amp has a lo pass crossover, and he is going to use the preout on his receiver to go to the amp, and he only needs to worry about giving it i guess 12v power supply is all he needs?

    powering everything

    i have a 600w rms amp, a 22x4 rms deck, and will soon have some neons inside the car. im wondering if getting a 1 farad cap for the amp will open up enough room for my stock alternator to power everything else, or should i just shoot for a 130 amp alternator. is an alternator easy enough to...

    securing my amp

    well, the amp wont fit on top, so i suppose its going on the back of the box, piggyback style. i figure it will look good back there too. its not going to get rattled to death on there is it?

    securing my amp

    my amp sits between my box and my rear seats and i was wondering what the best way to hold it down is. drill through the floor and bolt it down? or what? thanks.

    exhaust pricing and parts

    just called a few local shops and the lowest price i could get quoted was 250 plus labor, and the damn thing isnt even mandrel bent. the a-hole told me that it was a waste of money to mandrel bend it, and that my KKM intake is bad for performance. another shop said 275 for labor, 2.25" mandrel...

    sub distortion

    the distortion sounds like the speaker is unglued rather than a bad seal. ya the box is the new q-logic with the qring. ill go pick up some of that material on monday and see if it fixes the problem. if not, ill be back posting here =) thanks for the help.

    sub distortion

    im not sure how to describe the way it distorts. its like there is a flapping noise in the speaker. could that be due to an air leak. i pushed on the woofer and heard air leak out the sides, but i also heard a leak on the good sub, the one that sounds perfect. hmm.

    sub distortion

    its a prefab q-logic box. i think i fixed it though. how stupid a fix this was. there was a sticker in the box that had a corner sticking up and was vibrating like hell when the sub hit. i ended up rescrewing the sub down like three times. for some reason if i mount it the way the screws...

    sub distortion

    i just got my 2 infinity perfect 12s installed on my kenwood excelon amp. it runs perfect, but one sub has a strange distortion from it. i tightened all the screws down around it but its still there. i hooked the two subs up in parallel like the instructions say (using the sigma servo). the...
