    ThunderChild replied to the thread 1G Need exhaust. Need advice. Come on in and join a discussion..

    Mine is a mix of an SRS/eBay and custom stuff, and I wouldn't change it for a name brand. I love the way it sounds and looks. I spent considerably less on my exhaust, monetary-wise, but it took... See more

    ThunderChild liked 007jimmy's post in the thread Fuel rail -6 return fitting problem.

    The 91-94 1g rail is a few mm shorter then the 2g rail. Besides the slightly shorter length, the outlet of a 1g rail will need a different adapter while the 2g is the same on both sides.Actually... See more

    Interesting. I have the fuelab regulator kit, and while it's a tight fit, it clears with a few mm. Was your return line/fitting from a kit? Is the engine a 6 or 7 bolt, and what timing cover bits... See more

    ThunderChild replied to the thread 1G Any idea what this little board is?.

    Looks like the boards for the security cards/chips, so if you pull the corresponding chip, the car won't start. Early immobilizer type stuff. After zooming I'm almost positive that's what it is. See more

    ThunderChild replied to the thread Reasons not to use aluminum flywheels..

    I'm surprised they don't have a tabbed or toothed inset for the aluminum flywheels ring gear. That does seem like a pretty weak sauce retention method for the ring gear. Personally I went with... See more

    ThunderChild liked EVLGSX's post in the thread 2G Mishimoto slim fan keeps blowing fuse.

    If you got these fans from Mishimoto all wired up "plug and play" then that may be your issue. They come wired wrong and will pop the fuse the moment they kick on. The wires are all black in color... See more

    I've done some work on this and @MJcanada had a setup done, required a custom manifold for him to face the turbo in the standard DSM orientation. This makes for some very tight bends and odd... See more

    ThunderChild replied to the thread 1G What went wrong? Bearing Failure.

    All of the above. I'd also say do some cooling system mods so you can keep the temp down. Maybe run a restrictor instead of a thermostat, higher pressure cap, bigger radiator, proper dual fans.... See more
