    Experience With Combining Higher Intake Cams & Lower Exhaust Cams?

    I've seen a few individuals experimenting and utilizing such combos as 280 Intake and 272 Exhaust (280/272). I have not, however, seen anyone use a 272/264 combo. At any rate, does anyone have experience with testing these combos? Maybe Kevin? Usually we see the opposite used (and sold from...

    Evo Steering Wheel in DSM and Airbag connection

    I have obviously read through Andy's write-up here about this installation. What I'm wondering is if I can/should attempt to hook up the air bag system as well. Could it be as simple as disconnecting the battery before hooking the wiring up? I have spoke with Andy and he is still unsure.
