trouble with spt intake and tune
 
Ok, so im felling a little dumb for doing this but I have a stock 05 LGT with an SPT intake and used the COBB stage 1 with COBB intake map even tho I dont have a COBB intake (it looked similar). Everything seemed to go great for the first day after the tune but now seems to be a little sluggish and kinda smelly when I use my lead foot. Im thinkin I should just put the stock intake box back on even tho I just bought the SPT. I just hate that big extra box that feeds into the fender from the stock one. Is there anyway I could modify that big ol box or just leave it alone as well. Oh yea, I also have the turboxs 50/50 on there but I dont think that matters.

Different scaling for different intakes.

50/50 venting does cause some issues of it's own.

Cobs OTS tunes are not the best.

Use your AP to data-log then post it up.

You are kinda playing with fire. Slapping parts on and "thinking it's ok" is a good way to find out that "it wasn't ok"

The SPT intake is a POS. Do Not run it with Cobb maps, to lean:mad:

No need for intake or an aftermarket BPV at stg. 1

Go back to stock and reflash that bish.

You can leave the bottom off the stock box, if you like a noise.

I removed mine back in Aug 2004.

Its hard to decribe the smell but maybe some ethnic food farts.
Thanks for all the advice, im just gonna take all the stuff back off and go with the stage 1 map until I mod it up a little more.

Ditch the catted Up pipe, put in a aftermarket Down pipe. You don't need an intake, and you don't need an AM filter.

That is where the major power increase will come from.

If you want noise, add a AM BW valve, modify the stock intake box (search the forums) and add a fart can:lol::lol:

Net result is 5-8 HP for the noise, and a cop magnet;)

lol nice, trying to stay away from the fart cans tho

I've had a Perrin that I clean and oil with K&N kit since Aug 2004. Works fine.

ScoobySnax 06-27-2012 11:27 AM

thanks for the link. just saw it lol

ScoobySnax 06-27-2012 11:30 AM

gonna to the perrin. thanks for the advice on the oil too. had my oil changed 2500 miles ago with mobil 1 and already a half qt low

Max Capacity 06-27-2012 11:35 AM

Stop using Mobil 1.

Shell Rotella t6 5w-40 or Castrol Synthet,

I've gone to using Amsoil European 5w-40.

I've been using the same K&N kit I bought back in 2005.
