Point well taken. I certainly reacted inappropriately. However I will still differ in our definitions of capable & reliable. To me it is capable & reliable if it is...not that it has the potential to be.Thank you.
"Sorry to offend"? Seriously?
What about the insight you have already been given, and the re-direction after you started off down the wrong path? If you don't have the knowledge and ability to work on something, maybe you should leave it to those who do.
If the only comment I had made to you was the response to your reliability comment you might have something to say, but that was a complete side note to the help I was giving you. Think about it, you took a vehicle that is capable of going 100k+ miles with very little maintenance or repair and broke it while trying to add to its already respectable 260 hp. You then compare its reliability to something that generates about 100 hp on a good day and requires head work every 60k miles or so. I have two TR-6s in my possession, so I know all about them. You can easily fix anything that breaks, usually on the side of the road, and that is a good thing because they break a lot.
Good luck with your problem.
...and as to your shaming me on my knowledge & ability... you will get no argument from me as I have no delusions of how special I am. Heck, I sold a perfectly reliable car and bought this thing. As to your comment of my only responding to your reliability comment....I am not sure what I was supposed to reply to. Yes I know there are two sensors.... I put them there. I thought they were both referred to as MAP sensors since they have the same part# and are labeled as such. As far as not checking the correct sensor all I was doing was relaying what I saw on the scanner. I did not see any MAP1, MAP2 or turbocharger boost pressure parameter on the equipment I have at my disposal.... I will look again when I return home.
