  1. I have a question about performance and idle speed. I have a 78 280z, runs great, just replaced the one part it seemed to need to enhance its performance which was the lower pcv hose, the old one was crap. Boy what a difference the new one made... However, once I replaced it the idle went up from 800 to about 1000rpm. And I noticed the car's throttle switch didn't kick in to send it to full enrichment for full throttle application. So I lowered the idle to about 750 or 800rpm with the engine up to temperature of course.. Then I took it for a spin and it blew me away, I mean it threw me back in my seat, the performance was 1000 times what it was at the previous idle setting. My question is, how does the idle screw adjustment effect the idle? Is it adjusting airflow or does it control fuel flow somehow. I assume it's air... Any input from you guys would be great. Would love to know more about what's happening here.... -- Jeff..

  3. Ok I am aware of the popular L28/L28ET swop, but if I want to keep the orig L26 engine is there any proven ways (not to cost prohibitive) that can noticeably increase performance (say hp & torque up by +20% ?). Only mod I have made so far are early 240z carb's..Are stroker build for L26's available/worthwhile ? Apprecaite your thoughts.
  4. I made a few changes to the server to help improve a few things: 1) http cookie. After upgrading to our new software I noticed that cookies were being stored on client computers without our domain. This had a tendency to allow the cookie to expire when a member entered either the gallery, PM's, or the classifieds. I changed it so all modules use the same cookie storage domain as .classiczcars.com. After testing, it appears to work fine. 2) Performance. I've been seeing a performance impact after the update. Our standard SQL and HTTP configurations were not configured correctly. Today I was able to find some recommended settings and made these changes to the config files accordingly. After a few tests, the new config appears to be working fine and has increased performance at least on my end. Have things improved overall? I'll give it a few days to see. Thanks for your patience! Mike
