The scariest thing about studs is whether the heads will clear them, should you have to pull the heads. Since I just did this weeks ago, I know they do clear just fine. There's certainly benefits to...

Yes, tunes can be locked.
However, even unlocked tunes are fairly worthless in someone else's car. If the two people happen to have the identical mods, maybe it would work okay.

But that's (usually) e85. (I should lean the PE for gas a bit more).
It "seems" like the higher volume of e85 causes the turbo to spin faster, etc. I know I've read where other turbo-e85 users...

Yes, I meant the MSD harness.
Opening the gap seems to have taken me from 19 MPG to 23.5 MPG (~e70).
On this car, it's a whole bunch of labor to change the bank 1 plugs, so I'll likely leave them...

Purely unscientific, but here goes.
As suggested, I bought the MSD coil pack plug and play and used that as well. I did not test this by itself!
So, I got the car running again today. I gapped the...

JMS SparkMax V2 power wire splice

So, doing Google...

If I need to pull the cam, does the radiator have to come out to give enough space? My crank pulley is pinned, so I'm dreading that thought.

Lifter stuck in bore. Tricks to remove it?

I can pickup this lifter about 1/2" with the magnet, but even with vice grips, I can't remove it. This is the one that I suspect collapsed as the rocker was no longer moving.

Anyone have some tips...
