  • If you have decided to go faster, decide how fast you want to go....alcohol injection is probably the best first investment. After that, a larger turbo, matching converter,  matching injectors and a chip.  Before any of that, a Scanmaster and PowerLogger

  • okay, No plenum spacer, 4" inlet tube is a waste of money if you are keeping the car near stock.  The car will run in the elevens with 3" inlet, stock downpipe, and stock intercooler and stock throttlebody.  the spacer screws up the powerplate flow.

  • Which first paragraph.  You need to start using the forum so people that come along two days from now, or two years from now have the chance to benefit from discussions

  • Oh yeah.....your thoughts on the RJC plenum plate. I have one installed and i still think it cuts off a lot of air.

  • Here is nother one. Wanted to go with a 4" intake, of course the pipe was too large. I added a 45 degree IAC spacer. Going with the 1" plenum spacer with the vacuum ports and eliminating the block on top of the plenum. Picked up all the brass fitting to do the job and the fittings hit the fuel rail.......... ... can i get some help please.

  • I’ve found the speed bleeders to be a huge help when doing it alone.
  • September 18 2018, 01:37:38 PM
  • Steve Wood:
  • if no helper is available, just pour an inch of fluid into a glass and then submerge your tubing into the liquid.  That way it will not suck air back into the system....let the pedal up slowly which you should be doing any way
  • September 18 2018, 01:34:35 PM
  • Steve Wood:
  • when you say hand held, are you pumping into the master cylinder, or are you using one of the injector style pumps where you pump into the caliper or wheel cylinder and force fluid backwards thru the system

  • Get a helper, some tubing and a jar and go old school. I know it is a pain but it works.

  • Steve Wood:
  • if you leave all four corners open for more than a few minutes, it wll all drain out.  You need to check the volume coming out of all four corners, one at a time, when you depress the pedal to the floor.  It should be a fair amount and be obvious if you are catching it in a cup

  • Im using a hand held presure bleeder as well.
  • September 18 2018, 12:11:11 PM
  • Tcorgn6:
  • Thanks guys, its not that bad. most likely to bleed one more time. This time i will . i leave all four corners open over night and give 10 seconds in between

  • As I am not going back thru the shout box to look for comments pertaining to this subject which should have been posted in a proper thread where it can be accessed in the future, I will offer on suggestion and forget the matter.  If in doubt of the performance, check the volume of of fluid delivered by pressing the pedal to the floor on one corner at a time.  If there is decent and similar volume from each of the rears and each of the fronts when comparing per stroke, then the system is working.  If so, then it would appear the "feel" is different and the brakes are working.  If the flow is weak, then it sounds like a master cylinder problem.

  • said he pressure bled it three times.
  • September 18 2018, 07:14:40 AM
  • Steve Wood:
  • That is only done when pressure bleeding.  The most common cause of sponginess is usually caused by a failure to get all the air out of the master cylinder in my experience.  It's also important to wait about ten seconds or so between each pedal pump if you are pumping the pedal.  I usually start the bleeding by pumping the brake and as soon as I start getting some flow at the wheels, I then use my miteymite to suck the fluid thru.    this reduces the likelyhood of pockets in the line.  I also finish up by opening all four corners and letting them gravity bleed for a a bit...always be sure you keep the mastercylinder filled to  a reasonable level.  Pisses me off to no end to let it suck air LOL
