    the transmission usually won't cause it directly, but since the torque converter is fully locked in 3 and 4 any engine running problems feel very obvious.

    You can guesstimate preload based on the amount of travel from zero lash to proper torque. The final word is to confirm the preload with a dial indicator though. Off the top of my head I want to say...

    I'm sure electric supercharging does work. Pump air into the engine and add enough fuel and it has to make more power. There have been enough dyno tests with people shoving the outlet of a leaf...

    Plugs are different, the old stuff is generally fatter pins. The parts aren't actually different electrically, so get what plugs in to your harness. Probably 1990.

    No better time to change the body O ring either if thats leaking.

    Spray the bolts from underneath first. Can't hurt.
