SK(snail gauge) and my decklid...

Post by ecksrash » Sat Dec 27, 2014 7:14 pm

So I've been battling with my IDAs, and have a difficult time getting a good seal on the velocity stacks with the SK tool with my decklid on the car. I'm thinking I'm going to fabricate an adaptor so I can maintain a proper seal to achieve a correct reading. Have any of you had this problem? What did you come up with? Thanks for any insight...

Quick release hinge pins.
Cheap and effective.

I don't run ida's but do run quick release pins and they are pretty easy to use and make it easier to work around the engine.... :)

My baja has an 091 trans raised and angled, and tall manifolds. No room for a snail gauge. I use a 4 tube manometer. This has the added benefit of not needing to remove the air filters.
