Re: Will New Exhaust Actually Help?

I'll have to look into that, never actually heard of an underdrive pulley. Although to be honest I don't have any accessories to drive... But research shall be done!

Will New Exhaust Actually Help?

Does an aftermarket exhaust help a 2.3 lima perform any better or is it simply about the sound?

I'm not worried about sound, or about looks, (the quieter the better in my opinion, its a 4cyl, I...

I just tried this mod yesterday and I have noticed a slightly smoother idle, but that could just be in my head. So far I can't tell anything because the ECU is getting used to the setup, but I'll...

2.3 to 2.5?

I'm headed to the junkyard soon and was going to be on the lookout for some 2.5 engines and given that (to my understanding) the 2.5 is a 2.3 with a longer stroke; is it possible to swap the crank,...

A bit of an unorthodox swap

So I'm considering putting a 4.0 SOHC in place of my 2.3. Now the reason being, is that I think I can still use my M5OD-R1, and the fact that the truck itself came with a 4.0 as an option, therefore...

Amplifier Mounting Location?

So in my little single cab with Expo seat swap I'm wondering where the best place would be to put an amp. Seeing as how I don't have a passenger airbag that space is open and might work? Otherwise...

Re: Guess the vehicle!!!!

A winner you are! That is one of the cars that, if ever made in the states, I would gladly go many, many thousands of debt into for the moment they where available!

Re: Guess the vehicle!!!!

If I ever move to a country with old Citroens I'm going to try to find one, I just don't think that it would be smart in the states, I've only ever seen one DS in my life up here.

I've always loved older Citroens, especially the DS and the CX.

Re: Sunroof size options?

My friend's 1996 3.0 extended cab has an aftermarket sunroof (he bought it that way). I'll see if I can take some measurements today and get back to you.

Re: misfire, cylinders 1-4

My friend's 96 3.0 (non flex fuel) has coil packs, I'm assuming it's the same for this engine.

As for the topic, I can't help much, I have never dealt with misfiring on either my 2.3 or my friends...
