Got FIA seats in a C5? Can I test sit?

I am thinking about switching to FIA seats, but I'd like to sit in one in a C5 before I make up my mind about which ones. I'm mostly curious about how much headroom there is, and a little curious...

Battery reads 12.5 if I remember correctly. To rule that out we tried jump starting using my car with the engine idling. No change.

Plugs and wires are new but that's still a good test to try.

I came by to "help" today. The car still doesn't start, but I think we can rule out a few things.

Time to part it out.

How much for the intake manifold?

The car is at a shop right now but if I remember right I was able to get a finger between the caliper and the spokes, so at least 10mm, maybe 15mm.

Cool, it's nice to have actual data. You can really see how the accuracy degrades as you move away from stoich. It's a classic narrowband after all.

In theory, sure. But again, until someone actually plots the response curves of the stock sensors and a wideband, it's just theory.

If nobody else can make that plot I'll do it myself. Could be a...

Somebody needs to plot the response of the front O2 sensors against a wideband to put this subject to rest.

What he said.

"Preload" is confusingly named and widely misunderstood. Changing it doesn't affect your spring rate when there's weight on the tires - it just changes the ride height.

Sorry to hear about your Malibu.

I'm always super paranoid whenever I need a tow because there are so many stories about tow companies jerking customers around in so many ways.

If the seat has a bottom cushion that's removable, remove it. That helped a lot in my SN95, and I suspect I'll be doing the same in my C5 when I get fixed-back seats.

Yeah, I'm quite aware of the effect with turbochargers. :)

I'm curious why (whether) it matters with NA cars.

I should have been clearer about what I was asking.
