    ThunderChild liked 1990TSIAWDTALON's post in the thread 1992 Talon TSI 6/4 AUTO.

    I used it "back in the day". You just have to make SURE it is always "fat" and not lean. Back in high school (1978-82) I ran a 150 shot on a very wore Corvette 327, high compression motor in my V8... See more

    This. I'd bet the holes on the caliper itself are blocked. And the abs won't prevent your from bleeding, but the solenoid pack itself won't be bled until you actuate the solenoids while bleeding.... See more

    Sounds like the holes for the bleeders are rusted shut or something. Did the shop not offer any diagnosis or information? See more

    ThunderChild replied to the thread 2G fuel injector.

    I don't think you'll see a huge difference in idle quality with up to 850-880cc injectors. I have pte 880cc injectors in mine and it idles perfectly fine. Either way, the 750-775cc will be fine,... See more

    Yes, I’m still thinking solenoid, from that description. Not that it couldn’t be corrosion, or loose cable, but a connection problem usually has poor cranking. If the solenoid isn’t engaging... See more

    For bucket and shim styles @1990TSIAWDTALON is correct on measuring the shims with a micrometer, and measure the cams for Max lift, pick the higher lift set. You shouldnt be seeing massive... See more

    Well average if you really think that there might have been an oiling problem or something to wear on a roller system cam. Check a few lobes (intake say 3, same for exhaust) and see if they differ... See more
