Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The factory blow off valves on these cars are garbage. They are made from cheap plastic and fail internally easy. Either a GReddy Type-S or a factory 1st gen eclipse bov are good replacements. The 1st gen bov is a little cheaper than the GReddy but the GReddy can hold more boost if thats where your going with the car.
