Yeah that's not what the MX-6 is about. Anyone who gets one expecting to win drag races is really barking up the wrong tree, IMO. I actually like a smaller, revvier engine. My E46 has, as you say, effortless power, but it's not as rev-happy and fun as the M50B25 in my old E34, somehow.The KLDE is more fun for me as you still get some climbing sensation as it increases revs and reaches speed. With the KLZE engine it was effortless power. I guess that is good is you want to go faster. Kind of like the supercars now that reach 60 mph in 3 seconds.
Pulled the fuel rails off again (now that I know what to do, it took me about 15 minutes), and...eureka?Got everything reassembled, and.....she runs worse now. Also, there is what appears to be raw fuel coming out of the tailpipe in white puffs, so maybe my cleaning efforts caused an injector to stick open? I have some reman replacements on the way for delivery Wednesday. Stay tuned.
Nope; they're all in the correct locations.A little hard to tell, but it looks like the spark plug wires for # 4 and #5 cylinder are reversed.
