Default What's Taking So Long?

So how long does it take to install the kit?
Comments about S1 performance?
Is it all that it's cracked up to be?
How's the auto?
Better shifts?

C'mon [:I]

tthrift,

Be sure to double check the throttle cable and cruise cable at the throttle body. If they are not seated correctly then you would have the symptoms you describe. Good luck.

I installed mine last night and it took me 3:30 for the entire thing.
It was long because:
1. I started at 11:00PM with one fluoresent lamp
2. my car had other things that needed to remove.
3. the damm manifold gasket was glued to the lower manifold. I had to scrape all that crap very slowly and carefully to keep it from falling into the engine

it was well worht the effort and time. I did the transmition learning thing and after the learning phaze was done, I got the honor to street race with a BMW 325i with some mods at 2:30AM.
The guy was amazed that a "Wagon" had beated the ultimate driving machine!!!

When you floor it, you can hear the fuel pump pushing a lot of fuel (it reminded me of the Barry Grant fuel pumps in the race cars) to the engine and a kick in th but forward!

Thanks Tommy.

The BOV arrived today at 2:25 PM, I was doing again House Chores in preparation for My B-day party!!! so It had to wait until 7:00 PM.
The best way of working with the pasenger side screw was from the bottom of the car. I first tried squeezing my hands between the Compressor and the block, but no success, I raised the car, slided under it and it was there. for those planing to do the BOV, I highly reccomend going from the bottom of the car for that stupid screw.

The BOV sounds great! I have not driven with it yet, but just accelerating the car in neutral and going to 1PSI and let go of the trottle, it sounds great! Cant wait to let go of the trottle with 15 PSI!!!

Ian
