  16. Water/Alcohol injection adds octane?

    oh, one more thing, im a 2g, and i have a data logger but i have no way of knowing what my injector duty cycles are. i have maxed out 550's already due to the cold winter weather over here, and so i went ahead and got some 720's (hopefully to supply fuel to a bigger future turbo), and i've read...

  20. Water/Alcohol injection adds octane?

    i will be moving from an area of 93 octane (east coast) to 91 octane (west coast), i've heard that alky injection adds octane, i was wondering if i went w/ a 50/50 mix, would i be able to compensate for the octane loss? or even more? thanks.

    i will be moving from georgia with 93 octane to california/arizona with only 91 octane. my question is, what should i be prepared for. my profile is up to date, i am currently running 20psi daily on a big 16 a tuned conservatively with a pocketlogger and safc I, and ran a best time of...
  32. hows the tuners in phx az?

    i'll be moving to arizona soon too. i have finally finished reading this whole thread, and i am very pleased and excited about meeting all of you dsmers in the phx area. i didn't expect phx would have that many chill/cool dsm guys. i think phx would be the perfect spot for my car, as for "the...
  33. greddy or hks bov, which is louder?

    this is an old post, im the thread starter, so just letting you know, i went w/ the hks SSQV and i vent it, cuz i have the GM Maf in blow-thru setup. as for loudness, the HKS is much louder then the GREddy typeS. like posted about, the blitz sounds like the 1g's but 3x louder. well the HKS...
  34. Mazda Protege lip fits 92-94 Talons yes!!

    DAYM, that looks REALLY good, i would swear that its a lip made just for the 1g's. the lines flows perfectly w/ your lines. only flaw i see is the sides, i guess the front pix would exploit that flaw, but other then that, it looks REALLY good. i like it a lot.

  36. Finally took some pix of my HID's UPDATE: fixed links

    oh, that's not that big of a deal, i did my retrofit to where i can adjust my horizontals and verticals w/ the stock adjustment screws on the back of the headlights. and i did that on purpose because i need as much light on my side as the road as possible, so that tiny lil bump/step, makes a...
  37. Finally took some pix of my HID's UPDATE: fixed links

    thanks, the whole setup costed me $450 :cry: , (installed myself). overprice if you ask me, but i lived in the outskirts of georgia, and there are no street lights, so to me? worth every penny :thumb:
  38. Finally took some pix of my HID's UPDATE: fixed links

    here are the night shot. you know that blue twinkle you see in audi's and beemers? well i have that exact twinkle, but i can't seem to capture it onto a camera, maybe i have a cheap camera, cuz i just can't make it look as good as how it really looks in real life.

  40. Finally took some pix of my HID's UPDATE: fixed links

    u know what i REALLy love about them, that i didn't expect? when i go to my car at night and older people just look down on me because i drive a riced out, lowered, 5.25 inch exhaust tip, orange car, but when i turn on my HID's and the start-up is like a crystal blue, i see the look of how they...
  41. Finally took some pix of my HID's UPDATE: fixed links

    my shrouds are custom, i got some sheet metal and shaped it to fit in a curve around the lense so that it doesn't glare all over the place. and about my smiley face bumper, i use to hate it, actually got a 97-99 bumper, had it put on and everything, and then ran over a semi truck tire that...
  42. Finally took some pix of my HID's UPDATE: fixed links

    i finally got a clean wash after oh so long, so i decided to take some pix of my car. i've had these HID's on for about 2 months now, and they are absolutely great, they are pure white at night. this is a retrofit. my projectors are off of an audi A4 and the ballasts and bulb itself is off of an...
  43. johnny racecar's fmic, who has one?

    i didn't get a shot to take at look at it w/ my stock smic, but w/ my readings off of my Maf-T, i got a difference of about 7-9 degrees difference between my JRC intercooler and my supra MK4 stock SMIC. from my stock to the supra felt like night and day of a difference, and from my supra smic to...
  44. Neccessary to port match 2g head w/ 1g intake Mani?

  46. porting head while still in the car

    what about porting the inlet and outlet of the exhaust manifold, turbo inlet and outlet, and o2 housing then? any drawback doing that? any drawbacks of doing the exhaust manifold runners w/o doing the same on the head?
  47. HID on and off question

    i heard somewhere that it is bad to turn HID's on and off a lot continously, is this true? i am asking this because i want to hook my HID's up with my alarm setup. so that when i arm or disarm my car, my HID's would blink also. i have a 4200k kit in audi projectors. im curious because, if my...
  48. porting head while still in the car

    and what are the drawbacks if i upgrade the intake manifold w/o port matching the head. will i see any gains from that at all? because i don't really have the money, and i don't really want to pull the head out if i don't absoluely have to.
  49. porting head while still in the car

    is it possible to port the intake side of the head w/o pulling out the head or motor? i think the exhaust side would have a bit more room, but has anyone ever done it like that for the intake side? i plan on gasket matching it up with a 1g intake manifold.
