Approxmently how much horsepower are you adding to your stock 302 engine by adding an e303 cam cobra upper and lower intake70mm throttle body roller rockers. I already have after market exhaust header?

Is it possible to put fuel injection on a 1985 Chevy S10 blazer?
Will throttle body on stock 98 v6 mustang hurt performance?
The throttle body on a stock mustang should not hurt the performance. You can always upgrade to a better performing throttle body. Unless you plan on changing things like air intake, exhaust, headers, and things of that sort you should be just fine with the stock throttle body. They are already designed for the most efficiency and power ratios.
My 1986 Honda 250 with a 330 kit runs great when rode easy but when hammering the throttle it cuts out i have already adjusted the jet needle with no recovery?

Does a faulty 02 sensor on a 99 durango cause unstable idling and acceleration?
Asked in Car Computers and Sensors, Mercury Tracer
What would cause your 94 Mercury Tracer to idle rough and stall when stopped at a light We have already replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor and the Exhaust GAs Oxygen Sensor.?
Look for a vacuum leak. With the engine idling, anywhere you have a vacuum hose attached, Spray some throttle body cleaner at the connections and see if the engine idle picks up even just a bit. If it does, you have a vacuum leak. After checking if you do not find anything, at least spray some throttle body cleaner in the throttle body and clean the throttle blade up. Also try the Idle air Control Valve Located on top of your throttle body, or even the throttle position sensor

Do you have to get a new clutch when installing new transmission in mustang?
What is the difference between ram air intake and cold air intake?
Ram air intake aka, short ram intakes are good for low end horsepower and torque Cold air intakes have more horsepower gaines then short ram and more top end power. If your looking for more torque then horsepower, meaning more acceleration but dont care about topping out your car, then short ram intake is what you want. If you already have enough torque and just want more horsepower and go fast as possible, then cold air intake is what you want.

What is horsepower in bikes?
Horsepower (hp or HP) is the name of several non-metric units of power. In scientific discourse, the term "horsepower" is rarely used because of its various definitions and the already existent SI unit for power, the watt (W). However, use of the term "horsepower" persists as a legacy in many languages and industries, particularly as a units of measurement of the maximum power output of internal-combustion engines of automobiles, and often of trucks, buses and ships. The use of 'HP' is being slowly replaced by kW (kilowatt) and MW (megawatt).
How do you calculate brake hourse power from wheel horse power?
"they are basically equal"- Previous Answer They are not even close to equal. You can't calculate brake horsepower from wheel horsepower unless you know the exact losses through the drivetrain of the vehicle in question. The actual percent lost through any given drivetrain can vary dramatically. In order to know the losses you would need to measure the % difference between the brake horsepower and the wheel horsepower. Then you would already know the brake horsepower, and any calculations would be unnecessary. FYI- Brake horsepower is a rating of the engine output before the drivetrain/water pump/alternator/other attachments. It will be a higher number than wheel horsepower. It is measured by a brake dynomometer at the crankshaft of an engine. Wheel horsepower is generally 15-20% less (sometimes more than 20% less) than brake horsepower depending on whether the vehicle is FWD or RWD, or manual or automatic transmission. Usually the least losses will be in a FWD, manual transmission, and the most losses will be in a RWD, auto transmission. Auto manufacturers rate their engines in brake horsepower, as it allows them to advertise higher horsepower numbers than what is actually going to the ground.
Asked in Cadillac Catera
Throttle actuator control module performance for a Cadillac Catera?
Are you asking if the Catera HAS one, or are you asking WHERE it is? If you want to know whether or not it has one, simply look under the hood for the throttle cable. If there is no throttle cable coming from the firewall below the brake fluid reservoir to the front of the intake manifold, than it is an electrical throttle system; NOT a mechanical throttle (mechanical throttles have the throttle cable). If you already knew that but you're just wondering where the throttle actuator motor is, it is located on the side of the throttle body. It's going to be on the same side of the throttle with the MAF sensor located on the air intake. Hopefully this will help out, I actually just spent a week rebuilding the electrical throttle system on my 2005 Mustang GT. Despite the difference in vehicles compared to yours, all electric throttle systems are very similar. If you plan on working on your throttle system, THERE ARE A LOT, and I MEAN A LOT, of things you need to be sure you take into consideration BEFORE you disassemble any part of the throttle system. If you have any more questions, feel free to respond anytime. Oh Yeah - Failing to take into consideration the sensitivity and procedures needed to be taken while repairing/working on an electrical throttle system will result in AT LEAST 1 check engine light code, as well as not being able to drive your car whatsoever. Improper steps while servicing the system will more than likely result in virtually NO throttle response, well at least not enough to make your car move. Please be careful while doing anything with such a system until you know EXACTLY what you're doing. Not to act like a jerk of anything, but I just don't want you to suffer what I had to these last few days........GOOD LUCK!
95 Mustang 50 with manual trans engine speeds up fast and slows down a couple times in row and check engine light flashes?
What does the tow load button do on a Chevy truck?
The tow/haul button on the later model GM trucks and SUV's change the shift points in the transmission. While accelerating it raises the RPM's for the shift points and it raises the line pressure in the transmission for firmer shifts. When passing it changes the throttle position for the downshift from 3/4 throttle to 1/2 throttle so the transmission downshifts sooner into the lower gear. When slowing down it downshifts sooner throughout the gears back to first so if you have to speed back up you are already in a lower gear.
The Engine idles high Accelerator seems to be sticking Throttle body has already been flushed and is clean The engine is brand new only 1800 miles But the check engine light is on when the RPMs are up?

Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Acura Legend
What would be the top upgrade for maximum increase of horsepower be on a 1992 acura legend?
N2O (nitrous-oxide) will give you the most " bang for the buck" (most cost effective). For maximum increase in horsepower a fully built tubocharged, inter-cooled, nitrous-injected engine would be in order. If your looking for one component to get the most out of what you already have, and adding the "spray" isn't in the picture, most start with a cat-back exhaust system.
Asked in Fuel and Fuel Intake, Plymouth Voyager
The engine of my 1993 Voyager 2.5 Liter dies at wide open throttle. It idles rough. Already did a tune-up and replaced the fuel filter. Seems like it is fuel starved for higher RPMs. Any suggestion?
If the engine seems to die at wide open throttle when the transmission is in park or neutral, that would be the rev limiter kicking in. If the engine dies at wide open throttle while in drive, I would suspect a damaged/plugged catalytic converter. A vacuum test could verify that. If the vacuum drops off as you increase rpm, you have a restriction in the exhaust system, probably the cat.
