So a month or two ago I started hearing a louder than normal ticking form the driver side of the engine. I chalked it up as me being hypersensitive. About three weeks ago I was going WOT and at 5000rpm the car acted as though it hit the rev limiter. it completely dropped power. I thought it was an issue in the tune so I finally made it to SNL today to get my problem dealt with. After some data logging it cylinder 5 was misfiring. We swapped the plug and plug wire, no difference. Opened up the valve cover and BINGO!
They swapped it out for a new one and now its good as new.
do you think that was what was causing your V to drive all funky when ur rpms were dropping and what not.
Nope, that wasn't it. It still does it. Of course when I was at SNL I couldn't get it to do it. I think it may be the hot ass weather in conjunction with the cam. Oh well, I've learned to live with it.
im planning on replacing my stock valve springs. Any benefit on a stock cam to run dual spring over single springs? I'm deciding between the comp cams 26921 (dual springs) and 26918 (single spring)... opinions?
