    I'm considering buying some nitrous. I've been looking around, and checking out systems. I can't make up my mind. Any of you have nitrous? Let me know which system is best before I buy something I'll regret.

    Famous SVT owners?

    I know most of 'em drive Ferrari's. But, I was wondering if any of you have heard of any "stars" in SVT's? I can't think of any that I've seen. Just an off-the-wall question.

    My Poor, Poor Friend...

    One of my buddies has an 01 Civic Si. He's done a few minor mods to it. AEM cold air intake, exhaust, etc. For some reason or another he think his car flies. I've driven in it, and, I have to admit, it's a quick little bastard. It is not, however, fast by any means. Fun to drive, yes...

    C&L MAF vs. Secondary Intake Valves

    I have a 96 Cobra... I recently installed a C&L MAF unit. Now when the secondary intake valves are supposed to open at 3250 rpm, my car loses power for a split second, and quickly regains. It almost feels like I have no spark for that very short period of time. Has anyone else had...
