What kind of losses are we talking about with an RMVB setup? I'd still have to do something about the NSS with an MTX PCM though. It just seems like I can find a lot more 31th's than 41te's around here.

I only have the airbags on the dash and steering wheel. I had the 3 speed in my old Neon and I liked it. Still got good gas mileage and it was about as fun as an auto can be. I'll have no issues finding a PCM for an 00-01.

So for shits and giggles, I got a JY TCM for $25 just to see if it'd do anything. Nope. I pulled the dipstick and it was smoking. I really haven't seen much on here about a 41te to 31th swap and that's something I'm pondering. I like the 31th because it's stronger and simpler. Only major problem I f...

Mad Max II Rejuvenation

So I got a 2002 base model last week that has tranny issues. Seeing as tax season is upon us, I'm going to do a few other things. Plans are CAI, Header and cat delete, paint job, redo the interior, and an exhaust cutout. I'm going with looks and gas mileage with this car. My last 2gn got 30-32 MPG c...

I'd assume replacing them would be a good place to start... return them if it doesn't correct your issue. Somewhat off topic but what app are you using that shows p700 codes?

Dead Tranny?

So I picked up an '02 ATX today and they said it needs a new tranny. There's no metal or coolant in the tranny fluid and no tranny fluid in the coolant. I pulled the codes and I'm thinking the TCM is shot or possibly a connection issue. http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n604/Vince_Priola/Mobile%20...

Crane 12 advertises 12-14 hp gain. Magnum head is a gain. Ported and polished is a gain. All these gains better equal AT LEAST 20 WHP!!!! Good luck with that. A 12 isn't much bigger than an '01 Magnum cam. You might see 8 to 10 WHP out of all that. And I'm being damn optimistic. Laughing No way. No...

Filed DOHC pistons will bump the compression up a little but wouldn't be bad for a DD. Do you have an auto or manual trans? An under drive pulley(UDP) is also a good addition if you don't have a heavy electrical load.

How To: Quick Disconnect Battery Cable

I got tired of replacing battery terminals because of having to disconnect the battery to change sensors or pretty much anything else electrical, so I got creative and this is what I came up with. Only cost about $15 but it saves a lot of time. Supplies: I didn't have any heat wrap so I just used el...

Tell her your gas mileage dropped and it'll get better MPG with that and a tune up. That's what I told my wife and she let me get one. Ended up making one for $20 since I already had a filter to put on it.

Odd question, I know but I'm curious. I'm going to need new shocks/struts soon and a big part of the reason is the parking lot at work. It's a field.

The gas itself doesn't, the tune/engine is what dictates the octane requirements. The higher the octane the more it decreases the chance of detonation. That's why it's needed for forced induction, high compression, N2O, and performance engines. http://auto.howstuffworks.com/fuel-efficiency/fuel-cons...

Higher octane fuel doesn't give you HP. Higher octane fuel is for reducing detonation in high comp, boosted, and N2O engines. Using the right fuel for your engine will give you the most power.

It would be cheaper in the long run to go boosted. IDK what the prices are like over there but it's about $400 for a nitrous kit and average cost to fill a 10lb bottle is $40.
