I am really glad I found this site, and hope to stick around for a while. I have some experience creating forum skins with this forum software. I would like to know what you guys think about having a custom 2GStratus forum skin.

I am better at modding forum software than I am at modding cars, and I think I could do a really good job if you guys are interested.

For credentials: I own and operate my own website with an older version of this forum software. I created the skin there: http://www.gamer-talk.net/forums/ and recently did the skin at another site http://rpg.vgpub.com/forums/. That is just the latest stuff.

If you guys are interested just post here and we will take it from there.

Thanks,
Adam

So here's the story. A few months ago I had a local garage called "Apex Motorsports" here in Tucson AZ install a custom ram air intake on my car, and it did nothing except trigger my SES light. I was running rich and I think it actually made my car slower. Recently I ordered an AEM cold air intake kit with the bypass valve hoping that it would fix my problems. I had it installed today, and the SES light has not returned. Here's to hoping it stays that way! Anyways I've attached a pic (I know this mod isn't that great) for you all to see, but mostly because I am excited. If this goes well and the SES light stays off I will start modding the appearance and performance of my car some more.

Hey everyone,

I tried doing a search, but couldn't find a topic that answered my question. I want to get a new muffler for my 01 Sebring Coupe, but do not know which to get. I was thinking of getting a flowmaster, but as I said I'm not sure. The only mod I have on my car right now is CAI. Any suggestions for a muffler that sounds powerful, and not like a tin can?

Thank you,

Adam Paoli

Hi guys I'm new here.

I'm runnin' a 01 Sebring LXi. After having a custom CAI system installed at a local garage my 'Service Engine Soon' light came on. I had my car diagnosed at that garage, brakemasters, and my dealership because nobody seemed to be able to pinpoint the problem. Brakemasters said it is because of one of my O2 sensors and that I should have the dealership replace it. At the dealership they said no, it was because one of my front bank fuel injectors were damaged (they got the code that it was running rich), and then they replaced both injectors in the front bank to no avail (warrantied thk god). At the garage where the install was done we they told me it was running rich and we checked vacuum tubes, and tightened the the CAI up. I have yet to replace the O2's. We've deleted the code, but the SES light just comes back.

My car still runs rich.

I am wondering who has had this similar problem and what success you have had fixing it.

Possible solutions I know of:
+ Get an AEM system, reset the ECU upon install (recommended by local garage)
+ Disconnect negative battery terminal (heard this may not be a good idea, not sure about the whole thing. already deleted the code and SES came back)
+ Pay the $ and replace the O2 sensor hoping it will fix the problem.
+ Get a S-AFC. (I take it this will correct the fuel/o2 ratio?)

Please note my engine has 38,000 miles on it, so I am thinking the O2's are not the problem. I also am not that knowledgable about cars or engines in general, but I am trying my best to learn.

I appreciate your reading my topic.

-Adam
