Went to the track but for some reason It didnt spray, bottle pres was 1050 to 1100 so I guess that was good, but when hit the purge nothing happened just the click noise, but it made 12.894 at 104 and missed a stupid gear :bang: , street tires , still not bad but anybody had same problems ? or solenoids bad? is the MAF kit NX , fuel was 1st green line of the air/fuel gauge

I do it manually, 1st went good, 2nd to D missed, I dont know for what reason sometimes it changes fast, some others It stays maybe at 6 rpm and takes forever to change so I released the pedal and put the other D and kept like that

Check too make sure noids clicking and call me 888-463-2781 to talk throu the testing lay out..

Thanx, I will

Christian, may I advise you to let the trans do its own thing! I have been in those shoes, and a couple words of wisdom. In a Electronic trans, you will never change gears faster then the PCM, and also, manually shifting the A4 is bad juju unless its setup with a manual valve body.

Nitrous issue, do you have a filter? If not, then check the inlet screen on the noids. If they click, but nothings coming out, I'd check for obstruction first (after making sure the bottle was indeed open:) I done that one a couple times). Then if theres no obstruction, call Ricky and he can talk you thru the tear down.

Put it in D and let the PCM shift, it'll shift WAY faster than you can.

It does shift faster but the reason I do it like that is because on 1st and 2nd the car is crazy :judge: :devil: and when I put D from 1st to 2nd shift too fast that It doesnt get sometimes to the desired rpm, but yea Ill try that next time thanx guys for the advices, they are all taken for next time I hit the track ;)

do not manually shift your trans unless you want to go slower and damage your trans.

+1, You mess up more than help by trying to shift it.

Christian, try doing your burnout and then put it in D (not OD) and race it. If its not exactly where you want it to be, get with a tuner and go over the parameters, shift time, rpm/mph etc.. GL

Nice mph on the 1/8th time... that's for sure. If that is an auto you should be in the 7's and probably a low 12 in the 1/4th if you can get it to hook better.
