    Here is the problem...Finally some results!! The valve stem on cylinder 4 top and bottom were very worn which was causing the misfire on 4. The pcv-oil trap gizmo was very clogged. He said it was so clogged he couldn't get his screw driver in it. There was some oil on the timing belt which caused a chirping noise. The engine will be overhauled and all seals will be replaced and heads will be resurfaced. $1800 job.UGH!!

    so i made a custom intake from the intake box. i made 2 holes one on the bottom and one on inside the fender frame. for cold air.

    Im going to get a k and n filter to help that aswell.

    Long story short. i want to get my car tuned for 20psi. is that possible with 3inch exhaust and intake but thats it? is my twin intercooler strong enough to hold 20psi safely? or do i need to get a bigger front mount?

    And what can of horsepower should i see? if stock is 300 what would a custom intake with two of those ram air things you showed me before with a full 3inch exhaust including downpipe. and at 20psi when stock is 14?

    Saw some of your post and you seem to be the most knowledgable one I have come across. Was curious if you could offer some advice on a Volvo S40 T5 AWD 2005. My fiance took it into the dealer for the 75K milage tune up about 5 months ago. They told her the battery cables needed replacing along with the battery. They wanted 950.00, I choose to replace the battery myself, clean the cables and conections. Here's my problem.Within the last month it has started to "spudder"/ loose power while driving. It happens mostley at speeds on freeways and it just acts like someone is hitting the break on and off then goes back to normal status. Happend once then again so on and its getting worse. It acts like its not getting enough fuel. Today i pulled it into a parking lot and as i came to a stop the Gas light came on and it died. Looking to see if you have come across anything like this before.Extended warrenty was 85K she just hit 86K perfect timing.
    Thanks for any help you can offer

    Hey, You don't know me but I've heard about you from Rochelle Vanier. She told me about you when I bought my '96 850 Turbo! Just thought I'd drop by and say hey! And you got some nice cars too! I'm jealous. Take it easy!
