OP: I've run 1000's of vehicles on a dyno and 5 gas analyzer, from '74 clunkers to 599GTBs. Engine temp, unless wildly out of spec doesn't affect much but NOx on non-EGR engines, because the engine...

DSO: digital storage oscilloscope. When nit-picking a smog failure, you need equipment. Guessing will only throw money away. Having a dyno to re-run against your baseline helps too.

Don't forget about the dual mass flywheel (if you are running one.) They can wear to a point that allows too much radial play, which can give the driveline a distinct thumping upon unloading.

Since 255/40-18 is the correctly sized tire, and this happened after replacement, you have a tire circumference issue. Either match the fronts larger or get the correct size. Good luck :thumbup:

That is a small amp and efficient sub, you would require none of these things. My current setup is a RF1000/1 and two DVC Boston Acoustics 10"G5 at 0.5 ohms. I can't say I have a voltage drop issue.

Would it be possible to host the group of files as a .zip or .iso? Or convert to either of those formats. Not sure about sending .exe files, I'm sure most protocols flag those as malicious.
