No problem man. When do you need them? I'll have to ask my pimp if he will let me work overtime. I don't have the body I use to when I was your age.

Andy would you like to join me in helping buy little Jhuynh's coilovers. Young asian males go at a premium. Especially if they are ex-military. Ya'll are known for having a high threshold for pain. I on the other hand get a tittie twister and I pass out. What do you say?

Funny, my car is having very similar symptoms...It sounds deep and lumpy (like it is cammed) and I feel vibration as well. But I lose power badly after my car warms up. I have a lot of trouble accelerating even to just 30 mph. My codes say cylinder 2 misfire and maf low voltage as well as lean codes. I guess I will check my spark plugs/coil packs and replace my MAF.

replace your 2 cylinders coil, before anything else.

I had the same issues as you too, the system lean codes P0174 and P0171 are common issues. I was told not to care about it. But whenever my coil broke, it disables that cylinder and only works on 5 that's why it struggles on acceleration and stalls, sounds like it's cammed. I liked it but acceleration was slow. Remember the first cylinder is closest to the front of car so 2nd one from front. Replace the coil and I recommend cleaning out the ICV if you have high miles. Faster throttle response. The coil should cost you $40.

Damn you got some skills with that exacto knife. How much would you charge to circumcise my son? Maybe we can barter. I'll cut your grass if you cut his....

Looks good Vu!
