well two weeks ago i decided to replace my lift bolts (which upon inspection were not broken but only worn...so good for me!). i decided to change them with the "new and impoved" bolts that toyota supplied that is supposedly stronger and longer lasting. ever since i changed the bolts i have noticed that lift is not as..."violent". when i used to hit it it pushed me back on my seat like a mo-fo but now it seems...smoother. lift still engages and i'm still going faster, it's just that i don't get that kick in the ass effect. i don't know how i could ever have screwed up changeing a lift bolt (a monkey could do it)...my theory is:
a)when the bolts were worn there was a power dip which made lift spike up more when it engaged...but now that the bolt has been replaced the power s smoother and lift is not as violent. it now feels more like my friend's gsr when his v-tec hits...
b)the ecu needs time to get accustomed to the changes (this theory is pretty far off though)
c)i fucked up somewhere and my bolts are ready to spring out and shoot though my Hood
(this is rather unlikely...anyone who can turn a wrench can change the lift bolt)
what do you think guys?
