Can someone help me? My car has been making this weird whining noise and I can't figure out what it is.[:(]



















Could this be the problem?




Boost is fun and I've been driving around every since I got it with a big [:D] on my face!

wait a minute i think i know what wrong! your air filter is green, it doesn't match the paint. that can cause so many problems. i see it all the time...

LMAO

so did you install it yourself? how long did it take, and is it worth the time and cost. i'm thinking about getting a powerworks SC myself

First off yes I have said 'I was done' but when teh hubby keeps looking at SC or turbos and finds a smokin' deal on a PW SC then buys it for his wife for their anniversary (plus Christmas and next years' birthday too. LOL) then he has to get it.[:D][hihi]

V6Focus's brother installed it and I must say he does a hell of a job. If I could go back and do it all over again we should have done this. FI is the way to go.

Hey Mike (tunedfocuzx3) suck it. LOL

Most of the other stuff we had came off (head/cams/cam gears/UDP/Volant/2000 ported intake manifold) Not sure if we are going to a dyno soon but I have seen people that have the PW and the same exhaust set-up as we do making about 230/195. I was a little scared when I first drove it but wow. I wanna drive it all the time! Hehe.
