    OK mind you i have a 1.5L twin screw KB on a stock internal 5.0 on a 95 at 11psi. with 19lbs injectors. My car has become incresingly harder to start, when i putt putt around town it feels like something is drawing the motor and power back. and when i get on it hard in 2 or 3rd the car starts bogging and popping, then dies, then i turn the key on and hold it for about 15sec before it will fire back up, and it gargles alot give it a few revs then its fine to putt putt around. what could this be? im hoping injectors. but not sure.

    I cant be any help diagnosing the problem but I can tell you for sure the 19's you have in there is way to small and could be causing the problem. Has your car been tuned? I know you got it with the blower on it but have you done anything to it sice you got it?

    Hey man, not a problem, everyone is welcome to try to help trouble shoot my problems, 2 brains are better than one right? After i got the car i got it dynoed and tuned. They said i need bigger injectors and said to get 42's. Ive also done little things that shouldnt affectt this like the fan mod, i dumped hte exhuast. I cleaned the engine bay with a pressure washer, and water got on the inside of the distributer cap, i opened it up and thought i got all the water out... so im not sure it was just condensation on top of the cap.

    now don't take this the wrong way...


    But what kind of retard pressure washes the engine?

    if you want to clean the engine bay up spray some simple green and then lightly spray it off with the hose...lightly being the key word! If a few areas need extra attention wipe them off with a rag....Pressure washing under the hood is not a smart thing to do. Your forcing water in places it shouldn't be.
