    South Bend clutch slipping after 16k miles

    I thought I noticed something off with my car the other day when passing someone on my way home from work. Tonight I decided to replicate it. Put my car in 5th gear at 60 MPH, sits at around 1800 RPM. Put my foot down as if I was passing someone, and the RPM shot up to 2200 RPM, the dropped...

    Stock SMIC with tacotaco FMIC

    I'm leaning towards getting a new FMIC, but I don't want to have to deal with moving my MAP sensor, and running a ton of new piping. I'm thinking about keeping the stock SMIC, and running a FMIC, with same side in/out, to minimize new pipes. So basically running turbo, SMIC, FMIC, intake. Can...

    Is my VNT17 working correctly?

    So this is probably going to be a stupid, but I have some concerns about my turbo. So before my stock VNT15 went out, I did a de-cat and cleaned the turbo with Mr. Muscle. The turbo whistled very nice without the cat, and sounded amazing:D. On starting it warm, you could easily hear it spool...
