    Are you wanting to keep the locks? If not you can use a socket and just remove them. I don't think anyone is going to steal factory wheels that old. See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread 2G Turbo convert--> oil pressure gone.

    My guess is you don't have an oil pressure problem. The car is running like sh** because you changed injectors and not the ecu and the car is almost dying and low rpm is causing the oil pressure... See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread bolt-on upgrades.

    The stock motors only good for about 200whp. The ringlands tend to go first. The amount of boost will depend on the size turbo. See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread 2G Turbo convert--> oil pressure gone.

    So you changed to larger injectors but didn't change the ecu yet? That sounds like your problem to me. Black smoke is fuel not oil. See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread bolt-on upgrades.

    Honestly the 420a doesn't gain much at all from bolt ons. Intake, header, catback exhaust will only net you a few ponies. Your best hp/$ is to turbo the car. Buy a kit for a few grand and make... See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread Stripped differential bolt thread.

    I can't speak for the torque valve, but my bud has an e46 m3 and had the diff bolt strip. He drilled it out and tapped it to a larger size. It lasted for a while before it broke again and he... See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread Clear cam gear case for 420a?.

    I think the best approach would be to cut the stock covers right below the gears and make a clear over that somewhat mates up to the stock one, but it's just the top half similar to a 4g63 cover See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread Clear cam gear case for 420a?.

    I have never seen one. The 420a doesn't have a removable top half cover. You have to remove the whole outer cover. Most people just cut them right below the cam gears See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread Need help with blower asap.

    No that doesn't look like it. I'm not sure where it's located in the 1g but they are usually close to the blower motor. If it pops the fuse immediately on high then you must have a short. Put a... See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread wheel alignment.

    Does the car have adjustable ball joints? They could have slipped causing the wheel the toe in. I suggest making sure everything is tight and take it to an alignment shop. See more

    silvreclips replied to the thread Need help with blower asap.

    There is a resistor pack that slows the blow down on speeds below 4. That's probably bad if it only works on high. Start there. See more
