Where can I learn how to do all of this and what it means?
I really want to learn how to do all of these mods etc. and how they make the car better.

Thanks so much!

parham, i learned most of what i know by keeping an open eye on the forums. this forum is a really helpful self education tool... and even where it doesn't educate, it at least leads you to ask the right question.

typically, i'd see a car with a modification i knew very little about and that would spark a curiosity in my mind to know what that part does, what the reviews have been, and whether that part is worth it. for instance, i knew very little about supercharger kits before this forum sparked my curiosity about them. i did a few searches, read about the various superchargers available, and a few more searches later i learned how they worked for the most part and how they stacked up against each other, and then a few searches later read customer complaints and compliments. from a buyer's perspective there's little else that you need to know.

just keep your eyes and ears open on the forums... you can learn almost anything here.

Dyno Results (pre and post Stage 2 Intake install)

Alright guys, finally got the chart from EAS. We did about 8 pulls in sum. The below chart shows a representative "before" pull and a representative "after" pull. In sum, it looks like the Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake resulted in a net gain of 9 horsepower and about 5 ft-lbs of torque gained over just the regular Air Filter.

Its noteworthy to mention that it was about 90 degrees Farenheit outside (and warmer inside EAS) on the day we ran the pulls.
