Questions on a few Mods.

Guys, I have a 991/2 with 6 speed. I saw something one time about the warm up valve being used as an engine brake. Can anyone help me with that?

Yes, it can be done, Mine was a kit, but someone I saw had a DIY kit. I am sure they are the same. You can prolly check with one of the vendors about the kit or maybe one of them will see this and send you a PM.

Thanks! The truck has a straight pipe to the rear, K&N air filter so far. Any more cheap mods I can do before spending the $400 for a Programmer.?

Yeah, Do you have the K&N drop in or stage 2? Did you just cut your muff out and do the straight pipe? You def will need some guages before you start throwing power to it. Then you can start looking at chip vs modulesvs programers.

Oh, and if you dont care, it will be easier for everyone in the future if you put your truck info in your signature and put a City and state in your location, or just a state. Thx

The best mod you can do is to get rid of the K&N and go back to the stock filter setup.

Yeah, that is where I was headed with the K&N question. If it is a drop in, he has not lost too much, but if you shelled out 200+ bux on a stage 2, its a little different. There is a Tymar DIY that you can do for under 40 bux. Also, fuel pressure regulator shim, ZooDad Mod, Map sensor fooler, 10k and 18k mods. Those are the big cheaper ones, I am sure I missed one or too. There is a foil delete mod that gives you more turbo whistle, but it does not do anything for HP.

Thumbs up

Yea, sorry bout that. I'll get it right!

The K&N is just the drop in. Wow , that's gunna leave a mark. So, i'll be better off putting the stock filter back in?

Thanks for the info. Looks like the first thing to do is put a EGT guage.
