      i cant figure out why though.

      Check your spark plugs. They could be fouled pretty badly.

      I know mine fouled out pretty good, and it would idle badly, stall out, or misfire if when I would get it actually moving.

      I was running the f6dtc plugs( # ??) whatever plugs 034 suggests on their site. I changed them out to new stock plugs, and it happened again a week later. I then went to copper NGK's gapped them at .028 and had the best idle I ever have with the turbo setup.

      The first time it happened I was away from home, but was able to take the plugs out, and clean them off good enough to make it back.

      I don't think it's the plugs, I mean it could be, but would the car cruise at 70mph for 400 miles if the plugs were fouled? I'm thinking maybe there is a MAF issue/vac. leak. I am taking it to the eurodyne dealer here tomorrow for him to take a look at it.

      Because that's so logical ^ lol

      I want to know what power it put down with the 2871r!! and if it feels laggy or not.

      I hear the 28r has good midrange punch.

      maybe a little bit of lag...but i mean really little. i drive very grandma like so its only because i shift early anyway.

      thanks James, I have not gone through my show shots yet...i managed to take over 600 this weekend, lol.

      the only way i can get a clear one is if i re-wire the low coolant sensor...i already tried



      edit: now that i look at it i guess even a new yellow one would be better though...lol

      No prob dude, I didn't take too many pics this year, at dubs at the beach I filled a card. I need a new lense though, mines broken so that's probably why I'm not too inclined to using my camera

      Verb, you think his coolant bottle is bad, you shouldve seen mine!

      Oh I can totally put a new one in, but it would still be yellow. I would love to put a clear one in but I would have to re-wire the sensor.
