You really felt the need to bump a 6-month old thread to tell us this?

I drove down to meet him a year and a half ago or so. I drove 3 of his cars. All of them drove extremely well.

I also agree that the E-Cool thing isn't great. I would not have used it, and do not trust it. His hardware design seems pretty good though. I suspect his hatred of standalones stems from his failure with one.

And I love the whole "An electrical engineer's house was shitty, therefore all electrical engineers are idiots" line of reasoning. Makes total sense.

Tom also thinks Compression numbers with a 30psi varience between clyinders is fine if you are thinking about a FF kit.

Then I suggest they aren't good numbers and he should wet test. calls me a troll.

so then I pwn.

The factory service manual suggests a maximum difference between each cylinder of 28psi.

Your first test indicated a 30psi difference, and your second test was border-line at 27psi.

You have a large variance between your high and low number...a simple wet test and/or leakdown test would help determine if everything was kosher or not. I mean, you're the one who asked why there was "such a divergence"


Also, could you explain this:



I'm not quite sure what you did here or why? Are you saying you only unscrewed one spark plug at a time and simply let the coil spark to ground? Did you even disconnect the fuel injectors and go WOT during the test? This could all just be user error at this point.

But I'm a troll, you shouldn't answer me. You should just listen to what you want to hear.

Since it's already been resurrected, Tom puts on a show of believing this:

That's it. He'd rather sell his product and use careful wording whenever the issue comes up. This is the last person on the the planet to trust for forced induction info.
