VACUUM LINE REMOVAL DISCUSSION
okay fellas, i've got a carb, i've got headers, and i'm getting a cam.
on the old board you guys were talking about a mechanical secondary, and i have no idea what that means at all.
all i know is, that when it was discussed, it was a wow kinda thing, that was a real performance booster, seemingly to be very inexpensive.
can those that have done it, discuss it in detail... that is, a how-to and the possible benefits reaped from rigging it up?
i thought you said you spun your tires in d2... that's pretty dramatic.
is it worth doing? does top end suffer as a result of this? are there any drawbacks?
and hell, how do i do it?
ok guys, i tried this, but it seems that i was better off without it.
why? because in doing this you kinda slaughter your idle boost contrller linkage, and believe it or not, this does affect your idle.
------well, it did mine.
i must confess, it felt like the car had a lil more pick-up from a standing start, but it could have been totally psychosomatic.
dunno, i think if you're gonna do it, power to ya, but try and get that lil metal widget (that actually is kinda yellowish) off a junked car.
does anybody know how it works? i mean, nothing presses against the widget when you put it on the secondary throttle barrel's throttle shaft... does it bump up against something when accelerating?
anyhoo, that's my rant.
