pair plates or richen the mixure?

ever since i loaded the two bros map, i've had much better throttle response. but at the expense of insane popping. to the point where its embarrassing since i've got a loud exhaust and it's literally a loud BANG. doesnt appear to run too lean from what i can tell.

should i keep adjusting the fuel mixture or should i make the pair block off plates a high priority?

The plates are a quick fix and cheap.

Put on the plates. I believe the popping comes from the PAIR system dumping combustible gasses into the exhaust where the heat from the exhaust/headers cause it to ignite. Thus...a pop and backfire sound.

I have Satos on mine and Semi_Gray's block-off plates fixed it.

Press Any Key To Continue.

If you need convincing, just remove the system and plug the holes on the stock plates. No more popping.

GET THE PLATES!!

You'll be glad you did
It's a bit of work to remove the system, but there's a terrific write-up that's floatin' around in here somewhere. Use the search field.
It's a bit of effort but not really all that difficult.

The pair system just puts air into the exhaust. the combustables are already there. They just need more 02 so they burn.

Yeah, I still have some of these available. I'll shoot you a PM with the details.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

I'm wondering what you had trouble with. Mine went on very easily.

how bout instead of buying expensive plates you get 2 rubber caps and cap off the pair covers. Does the same thing as the plates at a fraction of the cost.

i bought mine on ebay for a little less than the ones semi-gray has but you have to mess around trying to seal them back up with silicone in a really tight spot,i think his you can leave the old reeds and gasket on the valve cover and know that you have a good seal,im thinking about getting his for peace of mind,live and learn.

Unless you've got a line on two rubber caps that fit exactly, just know that Semi-gray's plates work perfectly, look even better, and are cheap for what you get. Many have looked for the "rubber caps" but to my knowledge, nobody has found something that fits. Anyone out there have good looking rubber caps that work? I thought not.

Well, I picked up some rubber caps from autozone, reused the stock clamps, they fit perfectly and work fine. Yes, they aren't as good looking as semi-gray's plates(I know as I had them on my first 919), but they work.
