Alright, guys. I just got done reading all of this stuff and I suddenly feel REAL stupid! :rolleyes: All these posts with acronyms and stuff? I need to know what this stuff is, what it does, and how I can make it better if possible. The prospect of a direct swap from M62 to the Whipple seems attractive to me. Of course this wouls all come after I've found a good CAI (cold air intake, I know what that one means :D ) as well as a good header setup and proper exhaust. However I still feel dumb when I read this stuff! :( Do you guys know if their is a Hayes manual or any kind of book I could get so I could do some homework! I really do know my stuff when it comes to engines, but that's the pushrod V-8's and carburator stuff. Stuff of the past I'm guessing. I'm a 23 year old gearhead who's wanting to move on to the computerized and sensorized 21st century! Seems, though, I'll have to crack open a few good books to do so. :D Any suggestions from you guys would be quite welcome. :)

JPK, you are a gentleman and a scholar I thank you for the link. However do you know of any good literature that might be helpful to me. I'm thirst for knowledge about this car because I'm so used to small blocks and carburators, I really want to know and understand this car's systems. Any advise?? :confused:

Here's a good place to start, Cyrix.

There are literally TONS of books that have been written on this stuff. Take a trip to your local library and look it up dude. ;) :p

I know what a library is, man, ok? I did'nt say I was THAT stupid ;) I really appreciate the web link, I'm sure that will be helpful. Really, what I was looking for was a manual that's Redline Ion specific. However with the car being this new I'm not sure one is out yet. That's all I was trying to find out. :D

No, I don't think there is any RL specific literature out besides your owners manual and a few magazine articles.
