What I'm telling you is the in-cylinder combustion effect on octane is neglible. Because of the relatively small amount you inject in comparison to the fuel being injected at the same time by the injectors. If it raises your octane .5, you'd be lucky.

The SINGLE WI nozzle sprays less volume than a SINGLE fuel injector. And only HALF what you're spraying with the water can be methanol (50/50 is the most you can run). Now look at how much Acetone, Methanol, or Toluene you have to add to a TANK of 92 octane to simply raise it ONE full point of octane.

You have your ratios all mixed up. You're injecting a TINY amount of methanol in comparison to what your fuel injectors are. And the injectors outnumber your wi nozzle by 6:1.

You really don't know alot about torque converters and how they work, do you?

If a TCC fails, it send alot of debris through the trans and then cooks the fluid. You sure that isn't what happend?
Try me.
Start a new topic on it though, this is Mortehls post regarding his car, and I dont think it would be fair to make two pages to arguments over why a high stall is good or bad

Back to the possible stripping issues. I don't believe small amounts of cleaner or methanol would strip the coating. My coating stripped when I er uh sorta soaked my rotors.

The TB work and the */C work, ya know, the porting/polishing/milling is all a big waste of money.

Mainly, you're probably NEVER gonna feel a difference out of that. But now that I read through this thread a few days later, I think you're getting more of a seriously good idea/design setup than what you had before. What you had in the begining...............I pretty much **** a brick on some of the ideas you had in that list LOL

Keep it up meng, I maybe be able to head out for a NEBF and help work on it myslef, which would be nice

Only a waste of money if you don't do it yourself. And whether it'* worth it is a matter of deciding what you want.

Nate and Andrew are overdue at NEBF by a year Rob...

Nate, whether the porting is felt or not, as long as you can see even a tenth..it would be worthy for the plans.

Cool thing..Morty is moving up his trans build up. Hopefully he doesn't put the LSD in it.

No LSD.. If I want it bad enough AFTER WCBF and after the car becomes only track/ride around town.. then maybe. Right now its apparent that I don't understand it well enough so I shouldn't mess with it.

Transgo Shift kit yes, tranny temp (open to suggestions on the 92-95 body interior location) yes, seperate tranny cooler MAYBE at this point. I wasn't prepared to start the rebuild today so this aspect might get postponed.

You MUST replace the stock cooler and bypass the core in the radiator. Your trans failure sent debris into both, clogging up the passages.
