    Lets talk about the danger of Propane!

    That's true TurboBuickSix and it was not a voluntay test I can tell you that for sure. :) Never say never of course, but, as has already been pointed out, the impact requires to breach a propane tank is severe. (also takes about 500* F. to pop the release valve) If it's mounted on he shelf...

    Is Check Valve Needed In Diy System?

    Hey Paul, here is an idea for the hobbs switch. You don't need to mount it, but check out the 'project boxes' at Radio shack. Plastic, and in various sizes they can be drilled out for the wiring and hoses you need to enter it. I use RTV to attach the Hobbs to the bottom of the box. Once you have...

    Smc Pump Flow Test

    This is getting a bit off topic...:) but as you know by using the RMS of a sine wave the equipment that runs off it will run cooler, and more efficiently. In cable this is accomplished with the use of an electrolytic capacitor that discharges as .707 is reached creating a flat top to the sine...

    I agree with the above post. :) Sure you can DIY, but that kit has tunability that your DIY kit doesn't. Sure you spend more, but the value is there. I believe Steve has a tank for the trunk. That is the way to go...

    Smc Pump Flow Test

    Razor is the Pulse Width Wodulation a way of limiting (or increasing)voltage by 'clipping' off the top of the sine wave in order to control voltage? If so would it take an RMS meter to get a true voltage reading? Is this more like square wave stuff, or am I way off track? Go ahead, I...

    One Stop Parts For Diy Alky

    That's not too bad. You can go 2 stage for another 55 bucks. Even with getting a tank, and more hose you should come under $350. This is the way to go esp. if you want to put a large tank in the trunk. A few years back I remember a vendor wanting $550 for a two stage. One question that...

    Here is a post contributed by Steve Wood and contains materials from several sources. Great for anyone that is looking for some sound theory, and a peek at what Steve Yaklis is doing with alchy.

    Massive backfiring, car hard to start

    TurboTer, I had the exact same problem, run for 5 minutes, then backfire through the intake. The problem was the crank sensor. If the problem is not fuel related do this... Check to see that the interrupter rings in the pulley are not touching the sensor. Check through all 3 rings...

    First what the heck are you doing running 22 psi with all that stock stuff? Secondly you are not making that much more, if any more power trying to stretch the limits of the stock turbo that far. If you were making power in that range, the rest of us would go back to the stockers.. The...
