Did you have to change your gap at all. I'm hoping this wire may have been my rough idle problem too. When I pulled one wire while running it got super rough. Not so much with the other 3. And didn't feel/see spark from the bad wire.did with others

just bought wires 50 bucks OEM from ford with discount. Wondering why after the tune it would suddenly go bad. More spark from the tune and the wire finally gave up? it drove fine yesterday. then it sat for over 12 hrs. and then boom no start. gonna go throw wires on , be back in a bit.

ya the idea would be keep him about where he is right now (maybe another half inch down) and make him ride nice...

at this point all stock would be nice for AutoX and road driving but idk how it would look... i'll have to find pics.

ZOMG that green one is so win!!! want it meow!

also do you have pics of what your front/rear shocks look like? my guess is that we could find a koni that would drop into your stock housings like they do for my m3 housings.

also all the reviews I see of bilstein HD's/Sports is that they are baller for ultimate handling but are pretty harsh.

Wires are on. Alot better. Starts. Still rough idle, but it will idle.

How do I test the idle air valve?
