Default Brother is putting a 3.4" Pulleyboys pulley on his car.

He told me he needs "colder" spark plugs to prevent 'detonation' before he gets the pulley on.. he'* got the puller tool and everything he needs, but he is doing also a smaller belt, and using a gatorback belt, and replacing the other belt with another gatorback soon if i remember right..

is that true, though? what does 'colder' spark mean.. yeah, i'm in an automotive class and i still don't get what that means..

he also just put a full magnaflow exhaust setup on it, and left the resonator off..which was a mistake, sounds like there'* a loose bolt somewhere in the piping

high flow cat, u-bend delete, two high flow muffler cans, and the most hideous tips you could ever think of which he'* replacing.. but it still sounds decent, minus the raspy rattling like sound he gets after coming down from redline

that, and a $200-300 air intake box , there'* an emblem that says CAI on it, looks kind of like the ones that Thrasher makes.. has a k&n filter in it

Either way, every time I ride in his car, I say 'damnit, i really really need boost'

he usually just chuckles.. :(



mine'* still prettier though IMO.. wish i could have her just like that, but with a blower slapped on it.

maybe a moon/sun roof too

3.8" to a 2.2" with no supporting mods? Even with all the luck in the world I would not want to be near it on the first or second WOT attempt.

KR=pulled timing, and a myriad of other things..... and if it cant compensate enough,(which it wont) you get a blown motor

basically the smallest he should run is a 3.5 with his current mods
