    I just got another update from him. He now says about five working days, because he can't do all the work himself, he has to take it by a machine shop to have some stuff ground down. Also, my timing...

    Yeah, I run 89 in my car, and have since I got it. I know it has been tuned up within the past 30k, but I'll have to check my records to see exactly how long ago it was. He'll check the plugs...

    He ran the codes and said I have a plug misfire. I think I'm taking it in again tomorrow, since he couldn't do anything with it today. He said it may be from a bad batch of gas, and he highly...

  9. Check Engine Light Flashing - Noticeable Vibration

    When I was driving home tonight, I was getting ready to get on the interstate (65mph) and was on the ramp, and I turned my AC off because I felt I didn't need it anymore, and I didn't want it pulling...

    I'm sorry, I can't help you there. But I was curious on one thing, how much does it cost to get a tint job done? I was considering one on mine.

    Well, many things could happen if you mess around with it. First of all, you car could simply not start. Or, it could start and have a high idle, or shift erratically. Your RPM thresholds could be...

    I think you might be able to find a copy of VADIS on ebay, but as far as having done that thankfully I haven't had to. You should get a reply soon enough.

    If you open your hood and look on the left front corner of the engine bay (passenger side) there is a black box there. I'm pretty sure there's a screw/bolt of some sort that you have to unscrew, and...

    Ok, I didn't know it would put that much more stress on the engine, but I believe its true. I do like the extra response, would an ECU flash help that?
