Did those injectors work out? How much fuel did you have to pull if you used them? Sounds great so far! :D Actually those injectors failed shortly after I installed them. One of the came apart internally and I was running mega lean on the cylinder I had my wideband in with the MS. At WOT it would b...

Main reason you aren't just dropping in a 2.4 is???

For same price and less work, you can have a quicker car that's 10x more fun to drive. Bolt-on 2.4's will do same as a semi-built SOHC, and then plenty of potential after that. Mine pulls from 3000-8000. No need to downshift ever.

I always slide them on the very top of the tubes and then install the valve cover. I think I put them on the other way but I'd have to have it in my hand to verify.

If you just stick them to the bottom of the valve cover, there is a good chance they won't wrap around the tube and seal.

I wish the had events like that in our area. Everyone always says that but we have one here and less cars show up than you'd expect. It dropped off a bit last year, which is why they combined the slower classes into one, hopefully there will be more rounds to win now. Sometimes only 4-5 cars would ...

I'll let that one slide lol. I'll be racing at N2k11 as well. This is just a good competition for sport compacts. I don't think any other track in the midwest does a season long points series for slower cars. Maybe a handful in the country do. It's a blast.
