$ I know, easy to spend, hard to get. At least your car is almost paid up, and it sounds like the TLC it needs is straightforward to do and not expensive. Soon you could simply put some of the money that would go for payments into those fixes.

thats what im hoping for, after its paid off ill fix/mod...but i know my wife is going to be more like..."hey now that the car is paid off...i can go shopping more! yay!, and buy more stuff we dont need! yay!...etc"

rt now aside from the trans it's all easy not too expensive things it needs...but ive already put over $1k in it...(5tires - had a bubble a while back, 4struts, 4 swaybar links, like 7 tierods - inners and outters and rt now i have another bad inner wtf!?, timing belt stuff and)

last year i was like inches away from getting a udp(from a member on here) and downpipe(from otter), but i ended up not buying them, kuzz we needed the $ after i already agreed to buy them, so i had to tell them sorry i cant...i even sent in the payment for the udp and had to tell the guy to send it back..grr

Everyone will notice better throttle response, which will make it *feel* like you gained power and tq but in reality until you tune you won't gain anything.

Also, I did a before 0-120mph run and a after 0-120 mph run, on the same day, that I did the swap and on the same road, and it took me about 1.5-2 seconds longer to make it to 120.
I've been a member of c4g for about 3 years now, do you have a link to the dyno runs?

I don't think you would lose high end if anything you would gain the faster the engine spins the less air that can get into the combustion chamber raise the amount of air flow and more air can get in the cylinder and with more air you have to match it with fuel im sure the ecu can compensate for this but when too much air starts to flow it can't compensate and runs lean.. Probably in colder climates where the air is denser.. I would think if you match it with bigger injectors it wouldn't throw a code.. Sa215ol I've noticed a big difference the day after installing mine than it comes and goes where the car would pull hard one day and the next feel like the old TB

Installing a TB from an 05 outlander this weekend when my DC sports CAI comes in. I'll let you guys know if it's any bigger.

I'm wondering how you did the coolant bypass? My evo x tb is hitting the hard coolant line
