Think I'm loosing power?

Hey,

When I first got my car, (back in march) I could cirp the tires right as soon as i shifted into 2nd.

Now I can't do that anymore, and I think it feels a little slower.

Is it cause I am using 17" rims now?

Or do i need to clean my MAF, or is there something else I need to check. Its got about 47,000 miles. I always run 93 or 94 octane gas.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks

Maybe your clutch is slipping.

Should probably change my lift bolts too right?

Or does that have nothing to do with it?

True. the 17"'s don't help at all. Furthermore, it could be your clutch...mine died on me and that sucked...

Do your lift bolts, MAF & then see. They should be done anyway.

cant be ur lift bolts, cz even if ur shifting at high rpms quick you will chirp even if the car didnt have lift. i chirp on pos hondas civics when i shift them quick and i dont even rev them higher than 6500 rpm probably.
im guessing something with ur rims or tires, ur tires are worn out probably and thats why they dont have too much grip to chirp?

riiight, cause chirping the tires is a sign of power??? confused

your tires are probably wearing down and spinning withought chirping.

i suggest you learn to shift w/o chirping the tires. you'll be a bit faster that way wink
