    Is there a way to simulate the load enough to get the secondaries to open while sitting still? Like if I hold it at 3 grand then ramp it to 4 grand for a little would they? I always hear people talk about secondaries opening and making more noise and noticeable power increase and all but I have never felt anything nearly like that. Wondering if mine never open or I just wouldn't expect that from a stock Qjet on a mild 355?

    not enough load to open them that way.
    pull the hood, go for a drive
    or mark the linkage with something
    even go the other way, put a stop to prevent them from opening and test drive perhaps
