Well i just floored it. I mean the wheels i can feel slip a bit and the front end really lifts up.. So i know the programmer and all the little mods are doing there thing to an extent. But yeah i dont know man.

Re: Got it!

Had two friends hydro lock their cars goin thru the neighborhood a few times when it was pretty bad trying to get home for the night. A Jetta 1.8t and civic si. Sucked for them. I still remember pushing his jetta down the block to his house... few years back now.

On a side note the county of DuPage, where i live, is going to be doing a project for the water issues in the area soon so that the are shouldn't be flooding much anymore. Alright me on the tangent, hah.

Re: Got it!

Heh alright so me and Joe are the CA-NO. But alrighty then crazy jeep loving people (including me)...i think im going to see if i get around to doing something about the resonator or if i just leave it. I still want to try some of the other tunes during the week and see if i can visually watch the tach and how it shifts and butt dyno anything as i determine what i like.

Re: Got it!

I have aftermarket intakes on my XJ, WK and Mustang and all sit high in the engine bay. Just not worth the risk to me to place them down lower. Two of the three have a shield around them that seals to the hood and really only lets air that's funneled through the grill feed them. That's "cold" enough for me as I've never run an official 1/4 mile or 0-60 and really don't ever plan to do so.

Re: Got it!

No i agree, i mean if i wanted to race in an SUV id get a X5M or an SRT8 or whatever. My next performance car will be a charger or a modern muscle car. I always had Chrysler or GM prods. One day i want to get a Ford for sure. The mustang always keeps looking better every time i see one!

Re: Got it!

Did somebody say water?



Little stream crossing on a trail by my place. There is a deeper crossing after this but I didn't want to get out in that deep of water.
