    Just goes to show how picky theae cars are. I havent driven I in about a week and its been -20 or so out.. tank was really low I was afraid I froze the fuel system
    Must be picky, my STS shows between 11.5v-12v on a brand new battery and starts fine in sub zero weather.

    Re: 24 Hour Random Discussion Thread

    so ive got a crapload of wok to do on the bike soon. ive picked up a bunch of new parts:
    Bazzaz Z-FI
    Bazzaz Z-Bomb
    K&N intake
    Driven Block off plates
    Michelin Power Pilot 3 tired
    90 Degree aluminum valve stems
    Exhaust cat delete
    Gear indicator

    then shews ready for the Dyno! i should be pushing something like 130 hp to the wheel, maybe a little less since i cheaped out an dont want to spend $600 on headers, but my tuner said with the cat delete/gutted it will still be a good tune.... he tunes bikes for a race shop that has won championships... he tole me he doesnt want to tune it unless i get rid of the cat just because it wont turn out nearly as good as it could.

    edit - ok i decided to buy the Bazzaz Z-AFM and skip the dyno, i found out the Z-AFM is wat all the tuning shops are using now so the only downfall to not using the dyno and using just the Z-AFM is i wont be able to know my actual WHP. its a wideband auto tuner, just upload the bazzaz map turn the auto tuner on and go for a ride, it makes suggested changes to the map then you upload it on your computer and save it to the fuel module.
    its suppose to be easy... we will see how it goes.

    Planning on doing the Big 3 upgrade sometime soon. Any tips for me guys? I'm not making a monster system but in case I plan on upgrading in the future figured it be best to have this done now. Right now the system is about 7-800 watts

    I think Revshift is the company that makes them. I also believe R1 concepts does as well.

    Re: 24 Hour Random Discussion Thread

    I have a 2003 Cadillac cts 3.2l . I'm having issues with this car . It's like a Chain reaction one after another . The issue that I am having now, is when I start the car it idles rough and sometimes cuts off and I can feel vibrations in the steering wheel. When doesn't cutoff it idles rough then when I go to drive or seems like the acceleration is poor at first then it's smooth but only from a dead stop. Is this a throttle position sensor issue?
