It'll come to you over the next 50-100 miles. Better each day, for a very noticable improvement. Your fuel/air maps are all over the place right now trying to figure out what just happened.

After Mike and I installed the intake on my car it didn't come to me right away... Mike had the scantool in his hands and said to me " wow the PCM is all over the place, Looks like its trying to learn..

We noticed the improvements to how the car ran and drove... Even OD or 4th gear was better.... My lifters we also new and I didn't want to kill them off.. after a 100 miles or so i made a few runs and was impressed with the 2-1 downshift, and the 2nd gear pull came on stronger... It will get better in a few days

Don, did you p&p the LIM yourself or did you have it done by someone? I think it looks good and you got it to line up really nice with the heads.

I have read what seems like dozens of posts on LIM porting. Actually because of Willwren, I feel very comfortable in trying it myself. That man has done some serious homework and a great job of documenting things. I am a mechanic by trade so getting into a motor is no big deal but removing metal from parts is not part of my everyday job so I do get hesitant at doing it to my own car.

i think the best way is to buy one from the scrap yard and go easy at it then take youre time and check here but it very basic to see where those port are bad and they need to be smooth

Picked up LIM at wreckers for $50 today. Question, would the alumium UIM from a S3 fit on an S2? I would love to get one and polish the hell out of it so it looks chrome.
