Turbo Turtle where the maf is located doesnt matter. its where the air filter is at. if its getting cold air then its probably getting wet. turbo moves a lot of air very quickly when your in boost and sucks that water in and pushes it to the maf. it wont hurt any thing just cant really get high boost when its raining lol

focusmaniaczx3 dude just take 30 seconds to jack the car up and peek at the tranny mount. if you broke that thing and go to get into the boost that motor is going to buck hard enough for it to break vacuum lines and the intake manifold smack the firewall. ask me how i know. i just dont want to see you having more problems by breaking it worse when you can just do a quick visual first and then if its intact you can go get in the boost and see what happens.

and it might help to take a datalog as well. im sure tom would be happy to take a peek at it and tell you whats going on if you asked.

ZXthrizzle05 it might have gotten wet even thou it sits on the top of the engine, theres still a possibility for that. I will give it some boost today cuz there is no rain and see if problem persists

Turbo Turtle the bucking during rain sounds like a maf getting wet to me. mine used to do the same thing when i got in boost in the rain

When I tested a car with the fitch inline part they claimed a higher octane with an increase in HP and TQ

On the dyno the car had about .8 to 1.2 deg knock before and after the install and made less then 1.5 HP gain which could of been from anything , showed me there was no octane increase and shown no gains in over performance in HP or TQ

When they tested it on an ls1 it produced more hp on 89 octane than the motor did with out it on 91 octane. they said that it picked up an average of 17 hp. Also the Air force uses it on all of their vehicles on the flight line. So Im not sure but Thats got to mean something.

what was your concern with the head?
Well i went and picked up a used head hoping it would last me until i got my head rebuilt. Or at least for a little while. Well when i got the other head cleaned up I noticed some small dents/dings on one of the cylinder sections of the head (no damage to the valves so i didnt think that was gonna be a problem) Then after i got the head installed and i went to install the spark plugs. on cylinder #1 the spark plug sat lower than all the others. So i checked to make sure it didnt hit or anything and snugged it down (it was more difficult to snug down as well) I had a feeling that at some point that spark plug hole had been repaired. So my concern with it was that it wasnt going to hold boost. and I was right. so im going to take the head off again and take it back and just fix my head like i should have to begin with.
