    I'm just gonna put this out there, but if you are running the car hard enough that you need that much brakes, you shouldn't be running spacers. Also It's really hard to find wide wheels that actually fit. Nothing has enough offset, and...

    Egr temp sensor. California cars only. It'll set a cel if it's not hooked up and you have a california ecu.

    I thought that was like the first law of auto dsm, never let it have even 1psi in overdrive. Actually I think even pretty much all older automatics ever, don't abuse them in overdrive. Can't really be mad/blame the car for user error.

    Whatever puts the fingers just above flat most likely. It's really not a huge deal like everyone makes it out to be. Especially if you are not trying to jam gears at 10k.

    That's the one that machv sold. ecu+ or something

    I used to run xtd stuff, but back in 2012ish. The old stage 4 pressure plates were actually 2300lbs. A good oem mitssu 1g stock one is about 2200. I've been told repeatedly that they are supposed to be 1700lbs, but I've tested and they...

    Well for me it's not necessarily slower at higher boost. Nor it is going faster on less boost. It's taking less power to run the same number. it's getting better at utlizing the power. I guess I'm not really sure if it will go better turned...

    I did my part, shared my last track trip on here.

    Whatever you do, it would be best if a date ran was required.Also for some of us class racers some of common race sizes would be nice. 62 or 64mm , 67, 76, ect. It's a pain on the new times site trying to search as there can be about 5 names...

    I don't think you need 49 to run 8's. It really looks like you need to slow down and work out the kinks before you keep going out loaded for bear.story time. Back in the day it used to take almost 40psi for my car to go 11.0's-10.8's...

    in 2022 I think I'm at the point where I can say that if you need more than a composite will do, you also need a filled block. Also when you are playing around at very high boost like 49, you can't let it hit the revlimit or do things like...

    Tim or me is my vote. I think I'm backed up just about as far as tim is.

    Went to IFO in St Louis last weekend. Been having trouble getting parts lately, and couldn't get a new clutch disc for the dogbox (6 speed miata), but I had a new 4 puck for stock input in stock, so I stuck my trusty old synchro trans back in...

    10 years later, and I'm still running the same line/filter setup. I have 2 walbro 255's running into it though. Enough fuel for the car to trap 144 when it weighed 3150. I figure that's around 700 at the tire. Probably going to ditch the...

    Do the tensioners really even wear out? I am still running the original from 91 on my car. If you set the belt tension right the belt won't come off even if they fail and competely collapse.

    bastarddsm replied to the thread 1G Timing tensioner arm..
    I could make some bushings, but I'm booked pretty solid for the time being. I didn't know these really wore out. My car still has the original stuff, even the tensioner!
  • bastarddsm
    Probably 0.600 or so.
  • bastarddsm
    Try a 1g slave. ACT juggles the fulcrum dia (leverage ratio) to keep the pedal pressure reasonable. So you end up needing a lot more TOB travel to release it. In most cases you can't make a 2600 work good because the fingers will hit the...

    The blocks to make the case cost more than a PPG lololol.
