Is your car surging and doing what it was before? I guess I'm lost here.

I have a quart Mason jar of Peach moonshine in the fridge. My brother in law also sent me back some homemade from Spain. (I declared it through Customs and glad it didn't break)

It could also be this.



PQ usually adds this home brew to a full tank as a drying agent. Lately he has been with GTA. I think they may have FILLED the wrong tank. There is a 30 gallon custom built tank hidden under the rear seat in the tradition of early stock car entrepreneurs. I think they should syphon the gas out of the moonshine tank and the moonshine out of the gas tank


All of the above.

Yup. I've been through that system twice. Headers bolts are the first thing I went for. Then looked for evidence of a leak.

I'm going to swap me and Chris's MAF sensor. Haven't done that THIS time.

Catch can is currently not even hooked up so that's not it.

My headers scrape a lot with the car so low. Maybe I have a leak under? I'll check for that this weekend.

I don't think it's an air leak. It doesn't always do the surging thing. The idle is a bit rough all the time though. At least I think it's rough. I'll get you guys opinions next week. Hell, you guys might get in and tell me I'm freaking crazy and tell me to go buy a Prius. LOL

PQ, coming from a mechanic, you have fought with this long enough, it is the thing you are sure it is not. Or the little problem you know you have, don't think it would have anything to do with your problem, and are not concerned about it, trust me----been there, done it!!!!!!

Don't say that. A physical super charger problem is just that thing.

What I need to do first is have a tuner log it and look at it. Those guys know full well that it's not gonna be found by troubleshooting on the internet. There is a ricer shop with a dyno here I think I'm going to them tomorrow. It's the quickest and easiest option. I can't get to Triple X on the days I need to and everything else is hours away. As far as this pesky little problem goes I'm sure a ricer tuner can figure it out. BUT, going by what you are saying, I'm certainly ready for a big fat facepalm on myself.

Can not seafoam the blower. Will eat the coating from the inside. But I doubt I have that much carbon. The heads were removed and cleaned at 30k miles and I've had a catch can for 35k.
