    Ima blow it up!!

    Was coming home, car started running like shit. Second gear, 25-30 mph with the car floored and it would barely run. No ses light or anything came on. Got home and took the lid off ane cleaned the maf with maf cleaner and the t/b with t/b cleaner. Also took the time to spreay down in between the radiator and a/c condensor as it was filthy. Put it back together and started it up, while revving it up from under the hood, it would barely idle. This is the first time in a while its acted like this, usually it misses/stumbles after it gets hot. And of course, right before I kill it to go inside (before I blew it up, cause I was trying too) the fucking ses light comes on. Having it scanned tomorrow.


    New alternator..
    New TPS..

    And recent changes??

    Check plug wires, all sensor connections.
    If that doesn't do it, when was the last plug change? Maybe a fouled plug?

    I bet you get the SES light soon.

    Last thing I did was add the lid, and descreened the maf cause it was all dicked up. I got new plugs and wires in the back of the car. Will be putting them on this weekend. It gave me a SES light, but of course it was after I got home.

    replace that pump yourself. Racetronix kit at harris speed works for less than $300 if I remember correctly.

    With it being the weekend Im severely crunched on time, as its in the shop and torn down. The guy is cool enough to give me the weekend to try and find a better and less costly pump to put in, but I'd have to have the pump by monday morning. Thunder Racing said 2 weeks on the Racetronix. I'd do it myself but I dont have the place or means. Sucks cause that money was going to be my header money

    you should get in touch with Matt at harris tomorrow. Call them, they may overnight one to you that would be here Monday. Even paying the extra shipping you'd probably still come in under the stock pump.

    That is where I just picked up mine this weekend. About 250 shipped with all the wiring harness stuff. However, the pump itself is on back order, so it might take a while to get one from them.

    Yeah I work literally 2 miles from them. Called them yesterday and they said it would be at least 2 weeks to get one.
