    My daughter's new pet turtle just died

    This is all I use in the turtle aquarium: https://www.amazon.com/Seachem-Prime-Fresh-Saltwater-Conditioner/dp/B00025694O

    My daughter's new pet turtle just died

    Most people just wing the nitrogen cycle thing. It's far more important for fish with water temps above 74 degrees. But it does basically apply to any animal that will be spending a great deal of time in the water in an aquarium. I didn't learn about it until I was about 25. Then I was like...

    My daughter's new pet turtle just died

    I've had a turtle for literally 30 years now, since I was ten. THIRTY. I've had girlfriends who were younger than my turtle.I've also had some pretty elaborate aquarium setups. I don't know why your turtle died, sometimes purchased animals just die- especially exotic ones. However, I can give...

    FP4R2 Cams?

    Hmmm, maybe I'll sell the HKS cams. My backup engine is a 2.0L though and the HKS cams with 42-44 lbs is a decently proven combo on a 2.0L.

    FP4R2 Cams?

    Awesome. Exactly what I was looking for. Lift is about what I measured with calipers. They may be too big for me. I went back to a stock intake (from JMF Race) and will be running either an Evo 3 16g or 20g (I have both, down from a 6766). I have HKS 272s on the shelf. I'll try the FP cams first...

    FP4R2 Cams?

    So I got the P/N off my previously unknown "Stage 4" cams that came with my car. 101-FP4R2-8. At least it seems like it should be a 2 at the end. I did a fair bit of searching and found that cams called "FP4R2" indeed do exist, and some people have used them, but I couldn't find any specs...

    Watch out for who works on your car.

    I work on my car so I should definitely watch out.The issue with "shops" is that there are only basically three kinds...1) Brand specific shops that are pretty good but charge NEAR dealership pricing for work (like 0-20% less usually) but WILL NOT do anything custom. They'll replace your...

    Sold Genuine MHI EVO III 16G Turbo + Extras BRAND NEW

    I bought this new in September but decided to go bigger. It has never been bolted up, just stored. The only not factory-fresh thing about it is that I *carefully* bent the wastegate port slightly to clear a Forced Performance 4" intake (intake not included). This cost me $799 but they are on...

    JM Fab O2 Sensor Housing

    Mine is just a recirculating style. Their design is pretty compact compared to some Ebay units, that being said my car had a T4 with full 3" v-band discharge. Needless to say, the dipstick tube, and a bunch of other stuff has been fought with and they lost.

    JM Fab O2 Sensor Housing

    I just bought one.In reading the forums on this subject I am sure people will probably say "U SPENT $320 ON A $40 PART!?!?!?" But let me tell you about the reality of those $40 parts. Before I begin, I'm not going to get on some soapbox about supporting the U.S. economy or "innovators" because...

    Tune for creep? 16g problems.

    Hotter, higher pressure gasses expand faster into cooler lower pressure areas. Which would actually contribute to creep. If you wrap your manifold and turbine housing, all else being equal, I believe you'd have worse boost creep because you've made the system more efficient and increased the...

    Tune for creep? 16g problems.

    As pointed out on Facebook, there are two pictures that make it appear as though the nipple on the turbo elbow is connected to the valve cover breather port. Is this the case? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Pulled the trigger too soon.

    It'll be fine. Who honestly only ever buys one turbo anyway? Can't rob myself of the opportunity to change turbos later.This car had tons of modifications on it when I bought it, I'm reversing or changing a lot of it. Kind of a weird car- still has A/C, PS, cruise control, stock radio, etc...
