      Do you not have any AFR measurement? If so, come back when you do. This is going to be spark or fuel and the spark looks reasonable to me. You can't reasonably diagnose fuel issues without being able to measure it.And then to contradict that...

      Is any part of your suspension aftermarket? Loose ball joints and bushings will give you an unpleasant ride but I'm thinking mostly about springs and dampers. Being poorly matched in either direction will give you a shit ride, so look for...

      That plate is the mount for the 2Ga knock sensor connector. While it may help keep the seal from popping all the way out, its function is not to help the seal stay seated. As stated, it's either an old, hard seal or you've got excessive...

      I had my breather blocked off. When I was testing, I heard a leak from it so I mistook-en it for a intake side vacuum line and plugged it up with a bolt (doh!), not realizing that I was effectively pressure testing my crankcase. I guess with all...

      Definitely the former. We'd need to know your plans for the car and the 10% that isn't stock currently to make a suggestion, but I would plan on doing a turbo swap soonish. Do you know how old that turbo is?
    • randman2011
      Haha yeah. She’s had many cameos. It happens when all my work space is full of other parts.

      randman2011 replied to the thread Landmark EPA Ruling/SCOTUS.
      My husband is in the environmental health field, so he has been looking into this a lot. To be honest I haven't looked into it at all myself, but he is quick to point out that what this ruling forbids is stuff that the EPA hasn't actually been...

      @High PSI I feel your pain. I am running the Evo 3 O2 housing and the RRE downpipe is exactly what I needed, but the only option these days seems to be custom. I was planning to scrap my Megan unit but I guess I'll keep using it for now. STM is...

      randman2011 replied to the thread 2G Turbo rebuild kits..
      I don't have any experience rebuilding the factory T25, but I have used GPopShop's rebuild kits for other turbos and can't say enough good things about them. I called to ask about RHB31 disassembly and the guy I spoke to off the top of my head...

      randman2011 replied to the thread 2G 2GB Headlight upgrade.
      You can do 9005 high beam and 9006 low beam, or 9005 in both and trim the low beam according to the instructions above. You might as well do both at the same time.If you mean the amber DRL/turn signal, the housing's lens is amber in both 2ga...

      I have a set of 3G nozzles in my basement. I never installed them because I couldn't figure out how to get the old ones out. Not that I really tried...

      randman2011 replied to the thread 2G Clutch pedal.
      The very tip of the rod looks bent. I'd guess it has been bending slowly and that last start was enough to bend it to the point that it could pop out of the fork. Or break the rod. Either way, it looks like it's just a new slave and clutch...

      randman2011 replied to the thread Greetings!!.
      Welcome! I love that color! Tops are easy to do if you've got the indoor space and a few days to fool with it. It looks like you're just a few trim pieces away from having a complete car! Nice score!

      I'm sorry. You are absolutely correct! I obviously had one of my old age (71) brain farts that are getting more common now. Also had a triple heart bypass 12 days ago and am recovering. Please forgive me and thanks Cracked DSM for catching it so...

      Thanks for the help. With the sunroof, all it does is vent and won't open. It then takes a couple presses for it to go back down. There is a plastic piece with a bolt you can turn for probably if it wont close and you can manually turn it shut...

      randman2011 replied to the thread 420A List of issues.
      With oil in the spark plug wells, it's also a good idea to replace the oil cap itself.Water in the trunk is somewhat common. It can come from the rear wiper hole (if deleted), spoiler mount holes, or a deteriorated hatch seal. On turbo cars it...

      If it has been modded, it has probably been modded poorly or incorrectly. Don't let high miles scare you away from an otherwise clean example.Also, when checking for strut tower rust, check from inside the wheel well. It rusts from the inside...

      In my personal experience, and I realize this won't be the same for everybody...Stock 450's will support 32 lb/min at 100% duty. A 14B compressor wheel is a 30 lb/min (peak) compressor according to the map, though some have stretched this to...
    • randman2011
      How does the oil look? Have you performed a compression test? The first (and only) thing that comes to mid for me is a blown headgasket pushing combustion gases into the coolant passages once the engine gets warm.How good is the heat in the...

      I love how they optimistically gave it a 170mph speedo. That must have been A LOT of cocaine.I got to hang out with one at a Cars & Coffee back in 2019 and the owner didn't really have good things to say about it. He talked about how the door...
