    I haven't found anything specific to the 1999 318, but every Chrysler V-8 I have seen is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 .

    HELP! Last week I took my 01 Cadillac STS to a mechanic friend for a new exhaust system. My car ran great before I took it in, now it is having problems.He assured me that he could use a magna-flow catalytic conv., and mufflers. I think that I should not have removed the cat. My service engine light stays on, gas cap indicator light comes on, not to mention that I had to replace the fuel pump,idlemotor for surging,the oxy sensors said that gas/air mix was too lean??? I have to take it back tomorrow, feels like it is missing! What do I do?

    i have a 86 pontiac grand prix V6 3.8. I want to increase the power without replacing the engine. I need some ideas. I would like to see more of an increase in take offs.

    There's gotta be more to this. I am assuming at this point that he replaced components which originally had oxygen sensors in them ... not sure why you'd get the gas cap light, though.

    Well, if nothing else, sounds like you should consider going back to stock ... at least with the cat.

  • I'm looking for a performance cam and timing belt for my 94 corolla 1.8 motor. Do you have any suggestion where to look.
  • i got a 2002 mitsubishi lancer es. i am wanting to add about 25 to 50 horse power to it. is there any way that i can do that..??
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 44,528
    turbo kit's the only way if you want that much HP (50). For 25 HP you *might* get away with CAI, larger diameter throttle body, header pipe and cat-back exhaust.

  • HI I NEED HELP I HAVE A 2005 2.SLOW GOLF LOL 2.0 AND I WANNA MODIFY IT BECAUSE HONESTLY THE CAR IS JUST BORING TO DRIVE.

    My car has a garetts T25 Turbo and a heavy duty clutch on it. It is 3 years old. Whenever I floor it(or really get on) the gas, around 3.5 rpm where the turbo kicks in, my car briefly looses power in a big THUD that shakes the car. It does it in 2, 3, and 4th the most. Does anyone have an idea if its the clutch or turbo?

    No need to make multiple posts of the same question. We are already answering you in your first post, which I think was in technical questions?

    That sounds pretty fair, for that $ though it should be complete and with at least a 3 month warranty on the work.
