I've never heard it flutter. Ever! Its always sounded like a smooth transition from closed to open back to closed. Am I high or something? It shouldn't be easy/hard for it to open but it shouldn't be easy/hard to close either. It needs balance... Y'know that yin and yang bull****

I never got an answer on the BPV. It sounds like the ewg is struggling to stay open/closed. Just my observation.
3-port BCSs (interrupt style) will cause the EWG to flutter. (It has an open or closed position, no in between)
2-port BCSs (bleed style) or a MBC will cause the EWG to open smoothly. (and allows the gate to be partially open)

A FR Chassis. Not ready to reveal yet..lots of proposals need to be written up and sent out.

Saddens me to see you go to an FR. Great car for what it is, and I know you will make it sick, but I just cannot get behind the car. While it is a great drive, its not gods chariot like everyone makes it out to be. I stand by my reasoning that a used r3 Rx8 with low miles is a better and cheaper buy.

Thanks for the info khan. I have never seen EWGs flutter like that. We will see if it does it with mine.

EDIT: speaking about getting **** on... FedEx refused to reroute my clutch. So now I have no idea where it is or how to find it. They said they "will put a note to the warehouse to hold it and to call you". Like they called me the last two times I requested a call

When does it get better guys tell me

It gets better when your clutch gets here and your car gets all finished up and tuned. It may take a bit, but it will happen

I have no clue. I unplugged the battery and reflashed it again and it's guddago. I just hope I didn't do any damage driving it the way it was. It's getting 19lbs instead of 21.5-22 that it was.

That, and most of its issue is lack of power. Something that can be fixed with the right parts.

I don't think it needs to be much faster, I think they built the car for the driver to become faster.

Your argument is invalid because more torques and more powers are always better

Depending on the model of each car, the brz could be 200-400 pounds lighter making the power difference moot.

I was just saying that the brz would be even more tits with more power.

When you put it that way, you could just buy a foxbody for next to nothing, put 8k or however much in it and blow just about everything out of the water.
