Hmm, wow, sorry that I didn't see this right away. We could have nipped this in the bud a long time ago. There were a couple of misleading things early on, but I think you are on the right track now. This is what you should have done, and I highly doubt this is a spark plug issue unless you just aren't explaining the situation properly. I can't tell if you are stumbling/stuttering at 5500rpm after a high rpm shift, if you are stuttering at 3500rpm in the next gear after a shift at 5500rpm, or if you are just having trouble when accelerating around 5500rpm. All of these scenarios indicate different problems, so it would help if you are more specific about what is happening and when it is happening.binx811 said:Thanks for all the info!:thumb: Thats why i love the whole evo comunity:dsm: I'll keep you guys posted, this weekend i will be installing the boost gauge and i will also take a look at the plugs and make sure they are gapped at 28. how do i know if the plugs are fouled? what should i look for? as for the bov, when i got the car it didnt have the stock one, the guy had a blitz bov leaking massivly. i have the hks and i picked up the recirculating kit, so i will do that this weekend too. Also, if the boost is over 19 how do i lower it? do i have to buy some kind of tool for this or will reg home tools work? Wish me luck!!!!
