That's what they sound like when the system needs to be bled.

The only two days I haven't been able to drive my car were the two I needed to self-install my IPF S/C. These wait times guys are reporting are absolutely ridiculous.

IPF sent me home with a tuning module when I dropped by and bought my kit. I downloaded one of their tunes off the menu on their website (you have many to choose from and pick one that matches your other mods) to the tuner then loaded it into the car.

Started right up, no dash lights. It took forever to bleed the power steering system, though.

I did accidentally cut an a/c line, but that was my fault for leaving the s/c oil drain line hanging free and the braided steel jacket on the line successfully sawed through the aluminum a/c line. Good thing it wasn't hot here yet.

Just got off the phone with Irene, the knock sensors are failing so they are still working through the tune to get everything right.

I think what she meant was the sensor is detecting knocking

Most of the time they fail when fuel detonation is not adjusted properly
