    Yeah, the closest station to me is across town, but when speaking in terms of MOAR POWER who really cares about small troubles like that? I'll buy some 5 gallon cans and stock up on it. I'm on that side of town at least once a week anyway. And fuel economy...that's not a consideration with this car.

    Excellent! Well, this should be more than enough to get me in trouble.

      Tom, Iíve been having trouble with the vacuum line that runs to the power cards and boost gauge. Itís broken several times at the push-in fitting. This time the fitting seems to be done. Any thoughts on: 1) sourcing another, 2) a more durable solution, and 3) why that may be happening?

        Is it breaking at the intake manifold or at the cards? Email me an address and I will send new tubing. Not having this issue elsewhere that I know of? I know the tubing on my 90 has been there for 7-8 years at least.

          At the manifold. Almost like itís melting a bit? Or stretching and tearing. Could be worn out motor mounts? Thereís still plenty of line left to reach, though.

          I will send you a PM. You are, as always, extremely helpful Tom.

            I'll send new. Just in case. Maybe it is bad/weak tubing? Always a first time.

            PM is empty now.

                Tom, got your care package. It got me back on the road, and making glorious whiney noises once again. Thank you!

                    Tom, I'm thinking about different size pulleys. What would your recommendation be for a stock internals NB2 with the Eaton supercharger on it? I'm also sort of thinking about that Magnuson. I'd need forged internals to make good use of that, correct?

                      Depends on what type fuel you are running. The NB2 has 10:1 compression so we don't normally recommend too much pulley on gasoline. Stock pulley is 105mm. You could probably get away with a 115mm pulley on 93/94 octane out east. That would pretty well double the stock hp of that engine. Beyond that I would seriously recommend E85. Then you could probably get all the way to the 130mm pulley on stock internals Beyond that, you would need forged internals. No need to change out the MP62. I am at 25psi boost on my MP62 with the 150mm pulley.

                        Running 93 currently. Thankfully we have steady supply of good stuff here. Unfortunately, I decided against E85 while I live in the current city, as I know of 3 pumps in the metro area and none of them are close to me. Any guesses what sort of a gain bumping to the 115 might net me?

                          It will add about 20bhp or about 16whp.
