#259 of 267 K&N Airfilter Replacement
Feb 09, 2006 (2:15 pm)
I just bought the replacement K7N filter for my 97' did any one else experience problems with installation? Mine felt a little too large for the air box and took about and extra 10 min to reassemble. i called pep-boys back to verify the numbers, everything checked out. i finally got the two clips to solidly lock into place, and im sure that there is no gap. Just wondering if anyone else has the same issue. Also, every time i try and access the air box mod on caddy info it says page not found or something. If some one can email the directions or a quick how-to would be much appreciated.

Today was a glorious, warm spring day in central NJ. As I slowed for a red traffic light on a four-lane road, I saw in my rearview mirror a BMW come up behind me. Because the driver was weaving from lane-to-lane to pass traffic, I was sure he would be off quickly when the light turned green. We were stopped side-by-side at the light. I shifted the transmission to 2nd. At green we both hit the gas. I was surprised to get out ahead. My '97 had a 1/2 car-length lead at about 45 mph when I had to shut down because of a car in front of me. The new 330i passed me with its engine absolutely screaming.

Very nice. It seems of late, that whenever I ran someone, they usually quit around the end of 1st. I believe it has to do with my CAI being fairly loud on the outside. I raced my brother once in his GTI and he missed his shift because of how loud my car was....

You guys make me jealous. I got a 95 and can't get a squeak out it. 97k. I know it needs plugs and wires but service the TB is out my realm with that big MAF in the road. A thottle control module would be nice but the dealer want 226 for it. I wrested in a K&N but it just sounds a bit better. Didn't wake it up. Car runs great except I can't seem the wheel balance right. Just moves the vibration around. New Yokos ,never again. It doesn't like the air on. Runs smooth as silk with it off. But runs rough with it on then smooth then rough. Makes me nervous. Car never ran at 180, 225 constanly also makes me nervous.
car is spotless like new and pampered. I would like a recommedation on plugs. I have heard AC no platnium at .60 and the opposite stock only at .50. the Though of buying wires makes me wonder if I need a home improvement loan. Anybody want to take this thing and give it back finished.

I'm wondering if any of you speedsters figured out how to defy some of the circuitry in place. May not be across all years, but there is a circuit to defeat abusive maneuvers such as WOT from standing start. It is supposed to reduce power automatically.
Also has anyone tried getting their computer programed to Autobahn. You can have your computer programmed away from the vehicle, just need VIN. I understand that one of the few differences is the gear ratio difference.
#264 of 267 Drag Racing the Aurora ?

You nuts ?
Yes this car has the power.
A 95 is also 4,000 pounds.
They lighten up to about 3600 pounds after that.
Dragging against a car a 1,000 lbs less that weight is foolish.
Think about it.
The Aurora was designed to be a luxury car not a muscle car.
It is quick though isn't it ?
Right out of the factory.
One wonders why we don't keep it that way.

"When I turn ignition its as if the car is dead, no sound nothing. Then I try again and it kicks in like its attempting to start after 3 times or more it kicks in and starts up." -- My Aurora had a similar problem and they replced the lock cylinder and fixed the problem with the car not starting when the key was turned.
However the car still has the problem of dying while driving with no warning - sometimes it bucks or sputters and keeps going, somtimes it just conks out but will restart right away. The mechanic can't seem to put his finger on the problem and has fixed or checked out every warning error displayed in the history log of the diagnostic computer. Has anyone else had similar trouble or does anyone have an idea of what the problem might be. Also, when it does this the "Service Engine Soon" light comes on until the car is shut off and when restarted the light apparently resets itself until the next episode.

The best race story i have for my aRORA is a yellow vette and a yellow stang GT were lined up next to each other i pulled up behind the stang not thinking much of it at the time then i realised that they were going to race, i pushed the power button and took off traction control. The light turned green and off they went i stayed back at first not to be a destraction the vette took the stang very easly then it was my turn. i stomped it as i saw the guy in the stang look back at me as i went flying pased him, i just smiled and waved then i caught up to the vette rode next to him for a second then we both took off i kept up with him for a while then he was gone. ps this was all while i had a cylender mis fire.
and just last week i had a full tank of gas and a total of 3people in the car. i was crusin down the interstate with the windows down and music up, when i looked in my mirror and saw a cavilier (one of the better racers here ((its fully modified and looks nice for a cavi)) come weaving up on me i rolled up the windows and waited for him to catch up to me and i took off weaving back and forth through traffic keeping him a little ways behind me. we got onto an open streach of road and he got becide me i womped it and took off i kept topping out at 110 ( not autobahn) and he was starting to catch up to me and i reached my exit, got infront of him flashed my hazards at him and it was over.
