1994 Chevrolet S10 Blazer short ram air intake?

December 21st, 2010 · No Comments

I’m looking to install a Short Ram air intake on my Blazer. With a typical kit, do I have to mess with the MAF and intake sensors with the installation? I looked at the intake system on my Blazer, and it appears as if all of the sensors are positioned between the throttle body and the tubing for the intake, not on the intake itself. But I’m not completely sure. Has anyone here installed a short ram or even a cold air intake on one of these before?

Cleaning EGR valve on 98 Toyota Camry?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Can anyone comment on the process involved in cleaning the EGR valve on a 1998 Toyota Camry. Any cautions or tips. Is there a gasket that will need to be replaced, and do I need to use a sealer if there is? I am assuming that throttle body cleaner is the best solvent to use. I want to try cleaning it before I pony up $165.00 for a new one. I have basic mechanical knowledge and tools, and the part removal and re-install looks to be easy enough as it sits right on top of the engine. There always seem to be some little hang up on these “simple” jobs. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Toyota Camry engine light on, could it be the tube connecting the TPS and Igniter?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Problem: I have a 4 cylinder 1996 Toyota Camery and the “check engine” light is on and the car is stuttering while driving. My husband checked the tube connecting the TPS and Ignighter and it was cracked. He temporarily pushed it on there, but the light is still on. I am going to get a new tube tomorrow. Would this make the engine light come on?

The AEM air bypass valve is ONLY compatible with genuine AEM intake systems. You must ensure that the valve is installed in the correct location for your vehicle and that the rubber soft mount that was originally supplied with the AEM intake is properly installed. The structural integrity of the valve depends on correct installation. Use of the AEM Air Bypass Valve in conjunction with any other system is neither recommended nor warranted and may result in, among other things, malfunction of the AEM Air Bypass Valve.

Acura GSR Whirlwind Intake Manifold Instructions

December 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Preparation for Installation
1. Make sure that there are no metal chips or other debris inside the manifold. Check that all bolts will run freely into any tapped holes.

Note that while this manifold makes provision for all vacuum lines and other brackets or parts that attached to the stock manifold, the vacuum ports originally on the front side of the manifold have been moved to the back for a cleaner appearance. This will require the use of longer vacuum hoses in some cases.
3. Disconnect battery and drain coolant.
4. Mark and identify all hoses and valves.
5. Check the condition of all hoses, gaskets and o-rings. Replace as needed. Use a new intake gasket. Honda #17105-P72-004.
