I also ran my car when it was pretty cold. Basically right from the parking lot where it had been sitting all morning, right to the dyno. That might be it, who knows. I also had the huge fan moved closer to the airfilter and not directly in front of the radiator (still was there but moved over some). Dyno'* are different from one to the next, and elevation would play a part too from what I've heard. Not sure how much higher you are that where I am. The 2.4 does offer a slight edge over the 2.5 while things are running cool, but me not having an exhaust would play a role on the street for sure when things are warmed up a bit. I don't drive my car too hard on a daily basis anyways, so I don't even know if I want to invest any more money into it as far as mods. Next car IS going to be a 2000+ SSEi, which will see all the goodies, including rockers. Just gotta get out of school in Dec. and get a job so I can get me one.
Hey anyone wanna buy a 95 SSEi in like 7 months?
Gordy, what is your intake setup? Don't see it in your sig.
Gotta show some pics of mine when it'* done (always a project still going on with me...ugh). I used the intake tubing from a Ford 4.6L SOHC engine (CV, Town Car, Grand Marq). Fits right in the TB on the L67, and curves nicely around with a flexible end. Did some cutting and minor fabbing to get it set up. Total cost was mostly air filter. Pipe was free, and I bought a rubber coupler at Home Depot for like 5 bucks. Epoxy'ed a couple things and away I went with my Autozone water-holding rice air filter for $25. Works fine for now. Still would like a K&N when funds and time become available.
