  • An MPI with GUTS!!!

    We just completed a full stage 3 upgrade to Doug's 2000 MPI. WHAT A CHANGE! Ordered the parts from MiniSport. Received a Stage 3 head, LCB Maniflow Headers, 1.5 Roller Rockers, plugs and a K&N filter. The installation went very smoothly. Basically a bolt on operation.
    We also ordered the 52mm throttle body but that is on backorder. Should add even more performance. (Did you know that the factory TB is limited to 3/4 max open)?
    The results are impressive. Lots of low end torque and it freely revs right to redline now. Where it would just barely maintain speed up the Southcenter hill on 405 to Burien, it now will smoothly accelerate in 4th. It is easy to just motor along in 4th at slow speeds and just add throttle to accerate away.
    Since this is an Multi Point Injected car, it was easy to just get in and turn the key. Now special tuning required.
    You gotta get a ride.
