Man these forums are all but dead it seems. Anyways, your problem sounds like its fuel related. I had an issue a few days ago where my car would start fine and idle fine, but when I would try to accelerate it would fall on its face. It would do it even when parked when it got bad enough but the prob...

I need to do this too on my 01 rt. I just replaced my lca's this past summer with no issues but I found evidence that the previous owner had to go through what you have encountered. There is a weld patch in the wheel well on the passengers side and the bolts are all but shot. One thing that bothers ...

Possibly with the exhaust, but remember, that supercharger is sucking HP from the crank. It takes much more HP to turn, than the turbo restricts the exhaust flow. What actually moves the turbine wheel is the thermal energy, more than the flow of the exhaust. If turbos relied on CFM alone, they prol...

Would it be hi-jacking if I asked you to elaborate further on this topic, concerning the other form of forced induction? As in a supercharger? :twisted: Yes...and its easy to assume that you would need more than what an n/a set-up would but unlike with a turbo....would you have the opportunity to t...

All you have to do is remember this: Every time the exhaust pulses, it pulls a relative vacuum behind it. This is what helps power, as it speeds up cylinder evacuation during the exhaust stroke and therefore a higher percentage unspent air filling the cylinder during the intake stroke. Knowing this...

Good to see you are having Matt do your tune. He's a good guy. Just do yourself a favor and figure out how to get an intercooler in there. When I installed/tuned Chris' MS, I was shocked at the heat that blower was putting out. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've baked cookies at lower temperatures. That...
