Installed the tap chip friday evening, but was getting to late to put the
Drove the car to pick some things up less spring, not much of a change worth
Up bright and early Sat. to install the spring, weather was a little nippy
here in the DC area, and after the drive last nite I was thinking the spring
was a waste of time. So in goes the spring, the 20V really has advanced in
design compaired to the 10V and much easier to work on. Told the wife I will
be back in a minute, just going to try it out. Well that was the fastest
hour of fun I have had since I chipped my 86tq two years ago. Car ran
fantastic, except it thru the air comp. belt, I think it's the AutoZone
K.Springfields just do not like running the 7000 rpm range, sure glad this
rascal cuts out @7200 rpm, it's for sure there for a reason.
Now for some info from all BTDT's.
I have noticed an increase in motor vibration after the timing belt job.
Used Blau. parts and tools, harmonic balancer is straight, tensioner is
seated and all looks good. I am cocearned it may have something to do with
the dist. and the crushing off of the old rotor, could this cause a vibe?
I will change all the belts with another brand, just in case.
Also, the car was running so good Sat. that on Sun. decided to install the
cone K&N air filter that I had ordered with the chip. I know, no flames
I should have washed the engine and compartment down first because when you
get into boost this thing sounds like it could inhale leaves from ten feet
wow, what a sound, cannot say if there is a performance diff. but the sound
sure makes it feel faster. But now I am also hearing another sound when the
boost starts coming up?
A metalic spinning that whirrs up and down with the turbo.
No, must be a cat shield, no it's the turbo.
Pulled the intake hose from the turbo. looks great, no metal shavings, spins
No movement front to back, slight from side to side, I have felt worse.
Any thing else to check before pulling the turbo?
