Yeeehaaaaa! I'm getting pacemakers fitted to the Windsor as I type! Iíve just been down to the shop and theyíve got both banks fitted and the cat and oxygen sensor fitted to one side. Almost done! I canít wait to hear the sound and plant the foot! I got it at a pretty good price too, $650 supplied and fitted. My question is, would it be beneficial to disconnect the battery and get the computer to re-learn the new manifold? Also, if I do go with a re-learn, Iíve heard that you have to drive itís balls off during the relearn period. Obviously the theory is that the computer adapts to a performance oriented driving style. Is this the case?
great work mate! damn, 630 bucks! and i thought 400 for a set for my car was a bit rich! six in a row is the only way to go heheheh.
it probably might make it learn a bit quicker if you disconnect the computer - they have a memory which remembers the air/fuel needs of the engine over the last 100 ignition cycles, at 101 the 1st one gets written over etc, so it will still learn, just maybe take a bit longer.
and you should be thrashing it all the time anyway :D not just on special occasions :D but yeah, IMHO thrashing helps hehe.
cant wait for willowbank!!! its gunna be brilliant!

Thanks rollin, I'm so pleased with it! I can't stop smiling, the way motoring should be!!! I originally was quoted $700 and $880 by another place, so getting it for $650 was pretty good. I've got the old headers in the back of the car... hehehe, I laughed at them. Oh man I opened her up after work once I'd picked her up... the cabin had that slight "new exhaust smell" which I love and as I wound her past 3000 I creamed my pants. Such a beautiful sound! The woob-woob-woob sound is more pronounced at idle too and some of the drone has been reduced. Yeah I can't wait till willowbank! I'm keen to see what my car now does at the wheel. Jeeez I"ve got the itch now, can someone recommend me a cam
Yeah, I sort of agonised over whether or not to do this and eventually just took the plunge. Very glad that I did! Also my fuel consumption has jumped up to 22L/100ks since I picked her up after work yesterday Does the manifold need re-tightening or checking? Are there any maintenence issues I should be aware of whilst it's new?
