    Who's installed a flux capacitor?

    Does it really make you go that much faster?

    Only with the di-lithium crystal upgrade.

    Be sure to tighten the tetragonal-scaleneohedron.

    Sweet Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    What kind of improvements did you see? Acceleration and fuel economy?

    Can you get me a deal on some of those? Maybe a price break for buying in bulk- like 10 or 12?

    Will the oils on my skin really hurt it if i handle it, like a halogen light?

    Use the "Flux Tuned" hi-po bearings for best results.

    I installed one flux capacitor per wheel to get the maximum performance benefits. I got a 4000% increase in horsepower, not to mention a louder exhaust (due to burnt up muffler bearings). So I eliminated the mufflers completely and installed one of KaleCo's "O" pipes for maximum backpressure. With the increased backpressure, I had to install heavy-duty piston return springs. All-in-all, a very good upgrade for the money.

    The Flux Capacitor was the best damn mod I've made so far. Although I had to purchase a set of left-hand wrenches to install the damn thing correctly! Oh well...and don't forget to replace the exhaust filter while your in there since you have to take the clutch belt off anyway... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I was going to but I opted for the Plutonium Space Modulator instead.

    I've installed TWO in my K5....

    [​IMG]


    That's good for a total of 2.42 GigaWatts!!

    As most of you know, there are precisely 746 Watts per Horsepower.... Therefore this "mod" has added 3,245,273 extra HP.....



    The question is:

    Is that at the flywheel or the rear wheels??? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    After you add your NEW Flux Capacitor you are surelly gonna need to get a Bord Out 1Ton Dana44 other wise your blinker fluid is gonna overheat and boil over /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I'm waiting for Steve to come out with a Yellow CK5.com sticker. That should be worth atleast 20 HP,......But maybe the full ColoradoK5.com since its longer by 325% should add 70 HP. am I right /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    4 amps, 400W each.... just about enough power!

The increased power from the capacitor will burn it up quick!
