Did you notice a difference when you ported the throttle body?

meh... only done it to my n/a, not that much power there anyway, so i doubt it.

i had it off, and had time to kill, so why not lol.

i got a little o.c.d. in me, heat, airflow, chrome thats not shiny (has finger prints on it) it all bugs me.

every little bit helps.

(i prolly got .5-1 more mpg lol)

hey guys i found a great little mod today and all you have to do is remove a nut!!!

here is the go, looking at your throttle body you will notice there are two butterflys and by opening the throttle you will see that the top one opens a bit then hits on a little fine thread bolt that opens the larger secondary butterfly now remove the fine thread bolt take the little nut off and reinsert the bolt tightly, this causes the larger butterfly to open earlier and at full throttle it opens completly, when driving the a very slight increase can be felt between 2000 and 3500 rpm.

hope this helps

thats a VERY old mod. like we were doing that in the 90's. lol

as you put it, mosre times then not, it would actually lose power. if you just screw the screw down without keep an eye on the butterflys, then it will actually open the upper butterfly too much, and start to partially close it. so it would be a restriction, not an improvement.

the ATX equipped cars have an even better option. on the ATX the upper butterfly is bigger, which is the primary one. and the secondary is smaller. ont he MTX cars, its the opposite.

then how do i have one? lol

88-92 mazda 626 / mx6 2.2L

89-92 ford probe 2.2L

as long as its a F2 motor, the pacesetter header for the ford probe fits right up.

heres the expensive company link

http://www.pacesetterexhaust.com/headers_detail.php

i was ganna make a new thread.. but i didn't think it was that important..

i saw this idea from "gavin" a mod on mx6.com, i dont rember the link so ill just get to it.

zip tied brake lines.

sounds sketchy? i never thought so cause i love free mods, but lets explain...

in theory this makes perfect sense, zip ties, one after another, crisscross pattern along the length of rubber brake line, both front, or front and back. keep the rubber from "flexing", much like the stainless steel braid lines, but at barley 1/4th the cost.

i chose just front for now, heres what it looks like.

and after i chose to wrap the caliper side in heat reflect tape, then zip tied secure, mostly to keep out dirt and stuff, but to shield the nylon ties from brake heat and dust.

_IMPORTANT_

im not saying this is AS GOOD AS s.s. lines, or am i saying you should do this...

i AM saying, ive done this, and i feel A BIT of an improvement, not too shabby when i didn't spend 1 dime.

:biggrin:

the zip tie mod is actually an very typical mod from like 10 years ago. you can do it to your clutch line also. but its been fazed out by cheaper braided brake lines then they used to be.

well most of the stuff you're doing is cool. I really wish you could get some dyno numbers to see how much its paying off. Ive been thinking about doing the zip tie trick for a while now(ever since the first time i saw it on the dakota like 3 years ago) but all the old heads i work with said it would be a waste of time.

thanks!

you and me both man...

ill tell you this, all the weight drop is AMAZINGLY noticeable...and the engine mods make it that much better.

i cant have more than...140hp to the wheels...even that is prolly too much a guess...but the feeling of taking 30mph canyon roads at around 75mph...

thats a feeling all its own.

I saw somewhere that you can increase power levels on the F2T in an afternoon, but not seeing any of that info here. 

eBay has 3/8" exhaust flanges for us now, so making an new downpipe is a no brainer.  

Is there a 'best place'  to put your boost gauge hose on the engine side?  

Quickest easiest way to remove the Beep and fuel cut off when I hit 12.5 PSI?

EBC makes Yellow pads for the 626 now, and they ROCK!

Anybody putting in additional oil coolers?  PWR Water to Air barrels for that long ride back to the intake manifold?
