He's been having a major problem with popping plugs and it just keeps happening so there has to be something internally wrong. Somethin wrong with spark or combustion or what not.

Detonation is prolly the culprit. Now you have to find out why.

That's what I don't get. He's not changing the timing, has the same plugs, injectors, coils as mine. But it could be anything really.

Maybe his knock sensor is not working. I think the website mentioned you could test the sensor with a hammer near the sensor. Could also check the compression where that plug is at. Compare that to compression on another cylinder. Should be around the same.

There not bad tires. But I'm going to go with the bfg kdw for my next set I think. Those or the yokohama s line. I will not have the sumitomo htr z again. Not bad in a straight line and quiet on the highway, but they don't turn in for **** and they are dissapearing at an alarming rate. 15k km and they are 60% gone... and the fronts are wearing at the same rate as the rears...

Here's my suggestion on what could be wrong. 1. Change oil, 2. Oil air filter, 3. 78mm throttle body could be choking your engine taking in to much air, 4. Could be your snow tires, 5. If you haven't tuned your car you need too. And hand held tune. If you can dyno tune. 6. Auto's lose most of its horsepower in the drivetrain so its not gonna be just as fast as a manual, 7. Could be clogged injectors if it feel like hesitating. 8 It also could be your set up but the tune would help that..

Just start with the small simple things first

Listen turner. I was there. He didn't spin. Don't preach to me about research cause I was there and saw it first hand. There's other thing wrong with his car other then the tires.

---------- Post added at 02:37 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:30 AM ----------

I'm not trying to say he's fine with them cause that's obvious I'm just saying that wasn't the problem this time
That is contradictory. A 2.3 is NOT hooking. I do not see why you are so defensive when people are trying to suggest solutions. Your times with DRs at 14.5 are also incredibly low. You should beat your own times stock, let alone with your mods.

78mm tb/p is not choking his engine down unless there is another problem...my 02gt runs soo much better since it got installed

Go with BFG sport comp 2's over the kdw's, quieter, stickier, better wet performance. The sport comp 2's will be my next tires, I am running the kdw's now

They are also less expensive

What is tread life vs kdw?

That was with zero launch and bad injectors. First time at the track and only 1 pass then my rear end blew up. I felt super rushed when I was going up there. I had guys yelling at me and I didn't know if I was doing what I was supposed to and next thing I know the light was going. I should run mid to low 13s cause I run as fast as cars that ran those kinds of times. I tried running some 30# injectors but it was WAY to rich and the engine was hesitating in 2nd. I crossed the line at 97 mph so obviously with a time that slow and a 2.001 60ft there was hesitation between take off and the finish line.

Well in that particular post I quoted there was no indication of a problem. You would probably do better from a tune than injectors.

Unless the injectors in the 2Vs are that horrible, you're not in the power level where injectors are needed. You have enough in your car for a 103-104 MPH time with a tune

Yea I have a hand held tuner but not a dyno which is much needed. I tried but I had a lightning mass air on it and it had no iat sensor so the o2 sensors were all over the place. It runs super rich as is but the 30# made it much worse. I have a buddy with a ls1 gto that ran a 13.6 and I can beat him so I know I can run better then that. It made me mad I only ran 1 time and my rear end blew up. Oh well things happen.

He needs practice. LS1 GTO are capable of a little more than that and pull harder as they drive. Now, doesn't change that you pull his comparative 13.6 so good job.


Get her all fixed and go back! It is like crack. When I got 13.1 then 13.0 I went for days to try and get my 12.999999999999999999 lol.

Their treadwear rating is also half of the kdw. I put 50k km on a car a year. Need tires that last too. I like the sport comps... just need more mileage out of them.

Edit:
I just looked them up and they are the same. These are the replacement for the g force sport. A tire I've had several times. I might go with them again but ill have to decide at that point. The treadware is pretty good. 340

Yes, same tread pattern and everything, just different compounds used in new tires

My best 60 was a 2.28 and i had to roll in the throttle to avoid spinning, at the time I had all season tires. I think it was just a bad track set up that day because everyone was getting slow times like the SN97s were hardly breaking into the 13s
