    I'm hoping I can avoid that with the UR cylinder-matched injectors...

    according to crucial, #3 breaks down from mechanical failure (because its closer to the turbo...not much you can do about that). #4 is the one that goes from high EGT's due to lean condition.

    -edit-

    oops brain-fart

    I just rememberd that Jeremy from Crucial and several other people from Cobb and Crawford) all said that they don't think its the fuel rails....its the HEADS that cause this problem...still the cylinder-matched injectors should help with that...cheaper than paying $3200 for CNC head porting and rebuild

    i want something where i can have good power and reliability. im going to be using the stock heads so anything above 2.5L wont be practical. i really want the 2.2 but if it comes down to it, im going to have to get a 2.5

    chris, thats what my car sounds like..but only on startup and around 3-4000 rpm...

    unless ur parents are going to help you out...you might as well take out personal bank loan and get it done correctly and be glad you did

    usually banks loan about 10 grand for about 300 a month for 48 months

    you may have to get a job but at least you'd be running...probly stronger than evaRRR
