    invaluable information is undeniably unnecessary and is of no use to me.

    okay this is what i have found on a few forums and other sites. what you do is you put sugar in your gas tank you see. what this does is actually makes the fuel sweeter, with this sweeter fuel you will gain better volumetric efficiency and in turn a slight to moderate increase of fuel mileage. Also so some say that two quarts of transmission fluid in the engine oil does wonders in enhancing the lubricity hence less friction = more hp

    LMAO says who? wheres the dyno sheet proving that?

    Heres the deal a SRI= some1 who cheaped out n didnt want to buy the CAI...

    its simply closer to the engine, pulling in hotter air... a CAI is further away from the engine and pulling in colder air... its that simple... SRI's are just a joke...

    puddle sucker my butt... if you put the think down under the rocker panel then yes... but if you put it in the fenderwall your fine. why do people think that the car makes anough suction to suc up water 3 feet off the ground. we are not talking about a shop vac people. and people... there is already water in the air we breath so the very minut little that may splash up towards the filter is not going to do a dang thing.,

    Had no boost for the rest of the day, had to remove the air filter and dry it off.
