We'll be doing a 2-hour ported LIM this weekend for myfirstbonnie. We'll put some pics up for those that want to follow along. He'll drive in and out with it.

Looking forward to feeling the power difference. All I can do right now is imagine.

I've read that there is some sort of a 100 mile break in period where the PCM is learning, and only after that will the full gains be felt. Is this true?

Yeah PCM needs to learn a little..
This is what I got from it... This vid has been worn out...LMAO
Keep in mind my 1-2 shift happens at 49 Mph... The speedo is a tad behind..LOL

Ah, I have seen that video in my searches. Very impressive, even more so considering the speedo is a little behind. Looks like about a 6.5 second 0-60 time, perhaps better if it were brake torqued.

I don't think I'll be seeing results as good as those, seeing as how I don't have PEMS or an enhanced TB, but I'm sure I'll be pleased nonetheless.

Interesting how getting my fenderwell CAI only made a moderate amount of difference in the butt dyno and the high flow cat made about zero. I wonder how much difference I'll feel with them NOW.

Speaking of which, I made the final preparations. Intense just sent my delivery tracker and the gaskets are due here on the 29th. I picked up a 180* thermostat today, and also made arrangements for installation assistance next Thursday the 1st of May. Looking forward to it !

The Funny part is that with the added flow in and out it changed the exhaust note a little bit... Seemed to have a bit more Groan and Growl

One of these days I will install the Magnaflow...lol

Yes the Lower intake is what seemed to bring it all together...

I think my 0-60 is actually 8 seconds.. The good thing about the intake is that it seemd to improve the throttle response as well as bring on a nicer midrange

Installation is planned for this afternoon. I've cleared the latter half of the day so I can get it done early enough to take it for a 100 mile shakedown cruise and then the real test.

You will like what you feel . Throughout the different times I've reset my PCM, I've learned that if I DON'T drive it hard through the first hundred miles, when I do put the pedal down it learns much quicker. I'd think that it would want a few WOT runs to see how much air really can flow through.

BTW, from now on, if you have any reason to pull the battery clamps, I'd consider getting one of those 9v batt memory keepers that plug into your cigarette lighter. It'* a pain to reset the pcm every time you work on the car.

Looking forward to it I'll try not to drive it too hard during the first few hundred miles...ha, hopefully I'll be able to stick to that.

Unfortunately, due to the amount of beers I consu....er, unforeseeable delays, I had to stop for the night. Everything'* off, gaskets are removed and mating surfaces are cleaned. All parts and sensors are off the old LIM and onto the new one. Some pics:



Down to the LIM.



Fairly clean lifter valley I suppose. Only been run on Mobil 1 since I've had it. Also, you can see how the aluminum gaskets have held up over the past nine months.



My parts mat.



New and old.





Port comparisons. You can see how much larger and more squared off the new ones are.



As it sits for the night, ready for reassembly.

Nice! That is an inspirational shot to those of us slowly getting ready to attempt the same thing!

How long did you take to reach your stopping point?

Well, counting about six separate thirty minute drinking periods, about four hours.

Had I been working constantly, it would have only taken about an hour. Probably could have had it in in 2 to 2.5 hours.

When I had done mine, it was the first time I'd torn apart the motor. For not having any instructions (there'* a word for word set here somewhere though, maybe by agrazela?), I tore mine down in probably just around an hour. Reassembly was slightly longer as I kept checking torque specs and I had to find the coolant elbow at a local parts store.
