For me personally, I put in a Cold Air Intake with a K&N cone filter first. Then I got Autolite 104 sparkplugs, a 180 degree thermostat, a smaller belt, and a 3.4" pulley and installed them at the same time.

Looking back, 3.4" was a little too much to be running without a custom PCM, even with the base supporting mods. I had some noticeable power losses and some KR problems in the summer time...but then again, I've got a 1997 SSEi that had 148,000+ miles on it at the time.

Personally, if I were you, I would go with a 3.5" pulley. I don't know how many more modifications you are planning on doing, but if you just want to do a few little things like intake and plugs and whatnot, then you really won't be able to go to something smaller than a 3.5" pulley without running into some KR problems. It takes more modifications than people think it does to run a 3.4" pulley. And a 3.0" pulley would be WAYYYY too small.

I've got headers, fwi, and pcm, and with a 3.4", I'm still gettin KR. So I think dbtk2 is right.

? What fuel do you use? And you know some KR right before the shift is normal right? It is torque mangament protecting the trans. It should go away right after the shift.

92 octane. The highest we got around here, and yeah, I know KR is normal around shifts, but this is during full throttle runs at 39 degrees ambient air temp. I don't know what'* causing it yet.

Have you put race gas in it to see if it goes away? Did you get a CASE learn done on the car when you put the PCM in it?
