Ask Danthurs how many times I pestered him with questions. LOL. And that was just with my MAF sensor.
Right now, I'd say I am still a noob beginner. Some things I was able to get right off the bat, but I'm not afraid to ask questions. The way I see it, ask before changing something your not familiar with.
Another thought, I really don't think you could change something so drastic, that you couldn't get it to idle before you even blew it up.
I believe, we are in the process of starting a tuning section here for everyone to ask questions.
