    Is it worth it ? Not racing just cruise ing . When does it work best? Car runs great as is should I go to the renegade? Every thing stock.

    It is a 82, just so much on the crossfire good and bad, is the renegade good for just a little better performance. Been told donít bother only good at top end.

    Try doing a search.
    there was some discussion a while back about it.
    I really didn't pay attention to it.

    We have a forum here dedicated to the Cross Fire Injection . There is a ton of information on all sorts of mods and I remember that there was a lengthy discussion of the Renegade intake there a while back. Just do a search in that forum and you should be able to find a lot under Renegade.

    In a word - Don't. The old Rochester TBIs will not keep up with the better airflow the Renegade provides and the fuel system will become weaker and weaker. In fact mine would not run above 2500 rpm and it got very hot.

    Ok thanks, I am putting a 85 fuel pump in. To try and get rid of the bog down at Take off . I hope it works. Other than that seems to run good after.

    That really sucks. I replaced the tires that still looked like new on the wife's '81 a couple years ago just because they were 8-10 years old. We weren't driving it anywhere except locally and no interstates because of the tire age.

    Its best to replace your tires every 5 years. Better safe than sorry
