    99 gsx runs like crap/ rich after evo 16g

    Still seems alittle more complicated than I would like.. Not sure if I want to alter the ecu settings completely. I was hoping to just be able to temporarily modify the A/F ratio so I could add boost and not run lean or rich.. I have never tuned so maybe this is not possible lol.. This is my...

    99 gsx runs like crap/ rich after evo 16g

    Ha yeah it ran great and FAST before, but I have a different Turbo now so i would imagine it will need to be tuned again.. I HATE CA SMOG!!! lol.. This means if I put back the large injectors and GM MAF and MAF translator and then pay to have it tuned, I will have to take it all off again for...

    2g getting warm...mods??

    It's gotta be that fmic getting my car hot. There's no way my radiator is getting air flow with that fmic in front. My radiator and fmic sit about 7 inches apart... It goes fmic then a 4-5 inch open gap then my ac condenser then another 2 inch gap then my radiator lol.. when i bought the car it...

    PO300 Random Missfire Code 2G

    Yeah I wish i could be 100% sure that the clutch/flywheel is the PO300 culprit.. Its not a cheap fix to try.. and a pain.. Dont really need to keep it under 3000rpm.. I can run it up to 7k no problem off and on up to 60-70 miles before the CEL comes on and the spuddering happens.. And the...

    New Evo 16g install issues, fuel cut ect..

    Yeah makes sence.. im new to turbos and mods.. i was worried about messing up my motor by running too much boost and not having the fuel to back it up.. i figured since a MBC is placed inline between the boost source and the wastegate that with out a MBC i would be running max uncontrolled boost...

    New Evo 16g install issues, fuel cut ect..

    So to clarify..its not good to run a direct line from the j-pipe to the WG right now correct?? As i dont have mods yet..So i should use the stock vacuum routing , including BCS, and T-Fitting to Turbo (or boost source j-pipe) just like the stock set up correct?Also i read a few places that...

    New Evo 16g install issues, fuel cut ect..

    I dont believe my IAC is shot just yet but i will still test it.. is there a way to install a throttle body gasket wrong? Iam hearing a vacuum leak around the gasket.

    New Evo 16g install issues, fuel cut ect..

    Thanks Nherron good info! Guess i will have to modify and weld in a nipple.. so there is no boost coming from the nipple on air intake?

    BOV location

    In Montana i imagine you could mount a machine gun to your hood and still pass inspection if there is one lol.. Here in Cali its all about the "sleeper" with all the smog BS we got to deal with.. i hate it :banghead:
  44. KrazyRob

    BOV location

    I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering if you mount your BOV upside down on the pipe will it make any difference? I want it to be less flashy.. for visual smog purposes here in CA.. :D
