    Starts then dies, where to begin...

    1994. I bought the car in 2014, it has QH installed and tuned for all the mods (60# injectors, etc). Has wide-band O2 sensors. I’ve never messed with the tuning, never even hooked up a laptop.

    HID's - yes or no?

    I'm really unhappy with the light output on my '94. My headlights are fairly new and clean. Is there a general consensus that HID's are an improvement over stock bulbs? But I don't like the idea of getting flashed by oncoming drivers because I'm one of those obnoxious car owners that doesn't...

    Help me remember my caliper options!

    Way back when I upgraded to MK8 spindles/end links on my 90 SC. Then I upgraded to Cobra brakes with SS brake lines in the front. Then a few weeks ago I took the Cobra setup an swapped it onto my 94 (and found out the SS lines would not swap over because the line side fitting is different). So...

    4R70W shifting issues

    The 94 I just picked up (137k miles) is having trouble shifting into 2nd. Drove fine a few days ago, this morning the rpms's would rev past 3k upon initial acceleration, then it would shift after I let off the gas. Shifting seems fine everywhere else, and no weird sounds. Fluid is nice and red...
