Yeah, coil is original so nearly 20years old lol....It seems like reman MAFs even from O'Reillys are a crap shoot like distributors so after checking plugs for fuel I'm going to plug in Datascan and take a few datalog drives to see what's going on again....

Thanks supa, even though the new injectors came with new o-rings, there's always the possibility of one getting a slit or torn when reinstalling the injectors. However, if there is a torn o-ring(s) , shouldn't the corresponding plug be covered in raw fuel? I just found the code and am going to check...

Sorry, no, just a 60mm custom catback with 18" (IIRC) Magnaflow resonator and Magnaflow metal core HFC. I was running a high flow baffled Maxima muffler before and had the Dynomax VT welded on. The only reason I pulled it is because my particular muffler (and a minority of them overall) had a tenden...

OBD1 KA and code 45!?!

Hey guys, I've had an intermittent battle with this code for some time now and it's driving me nuts. It's a '93 Altima that's back to NA for now and has been giving me a code 45 (leaky injector or overall very rich condition) off and on for some months. Due to the original parts being nearly 20 year...

I used the Dynomax VT muffler for a few months. It's really mellow and has a spring loaded valve flap in the straight through perf tube that opens with exhaust pressure. Alot quieter when cruising than most performance mufflers out there....

Well after some thinking on things, I believe the reason for me hitting the rev limiter in first is due to using the old '93 TCU which was controlling much taller gearing with the old tranny. I'm going to check out the '01 TCU and try to find an FSM to compare the pinouts between the 2 TCUs. The oth...

Nissan 4speed auto to auto swap question

Hey guys, I have a '93 Altima but am looking for as much experience as possible on this. Recently, I had a 2001 Altima automatic tranny installed in my '93 while I was out of town by a friend (mechanic). The benefit is the '01 has a 4.08FD and shorter 1-3 gears vs the '93 3.61FD and taller gears. He...

Head games-Nissan vs Honda

I'm just curious, omitting the VTECH technology, what makes Honda engines/heads less prone to detonation than your average KA or SR head (ignoring QRs)?

Is there something specific in the design or layout of the chambers?

That's a cool formula...in fact, I'm not sure what I posted was including FI or not (likely not) but it's actually pretty close..

300whp + 1.5%= 4.5whp
4.5x40*=18whp extra over a 40* drop, or 318whp. Just interesting...I'd stick w/KFred:)
