Took out the secondary butterfly from my intake today and actually wired open the 5th & 6th ports. I didn't actually expect to see any difference from taking them out, but, wow!


and, SNOW = fun, if you go slow that is.. fast and these little buggers don't know where the hell they wanna go, losing it is pretty easy as once you're sliding, ther'es no stoppin

I had to drive mine last year in the snow.I never want to put my baby thru that again.Did you see that site I posted a link to???Thats a nice way to restore a first gen. I pulled the 5th an 6th port sleeves out this time and pulled the airpots to the levers.Nice and clean.Now I just need to fix it.Tommorow I hope to have her running so I can stash it for 4-5 months.

You'll note that most of these have a VERY flat torque curve.

i am teh drunka nd I can tell you are teh = dumb.

do you not see the flat torque curves?! Those are on little teeny motors, I posted some small n/a 12as, 13bs, and some turbo 13bs. soe with almost no (stock) boost and osme with more boost. They N/A motors have VERY flat torque ruves... curves... and the turbo ones have, obviosuly due to the nature of boost, a more agressive power curve, however, as you can see there is lots of torque from right down low, even on the older less efficient motors.. you are teh stupid.... i are teh dizzy

proving me wrong? Open your eyes, look at the torque and power curves, that's not what you call "no torque" dumbass.

power is like this / and torque is like this - ... that's perfect.. sorry that you can't see that.

comon, that torque curve is flatter than your mammas chest... I'm not saying it has craploads of torque, I'm saying the torque curve is flat, and depending on what you do to the motor you'll have more or less of it.
