    Throttle Body Rebuild Kit

    Unfortunately, my seal supplier has dried up and I only have one kit left along with four install tools. I’m still working on finding an alternate supply for seals, but if anybody has any suggestions, please let me know.

    BBK Throttle body seals!

    The rebuild kits I sell work with OEM '91-'99 throttle bodies. If he was able to find a cheap OEM throttle body, he could get a rebuild kit and then have a working, easily serviceable unit.I don't know anything about the BBK units or what they take. My best suggestion would be to reach out...

    2G 2g DSM Engine Bay Electrical Connections

    I believe this was a 2ga only thing (really jogging my memory right now!) and this article was built around a 2gb harness, which is why certain connectors are not included here.

    Garage renovation

    I had gone back and forth between the NewAge and Husky for a bit. The NewAge Pro is a step above the Husky which is a step above the NewAge Bold. In the end, the NewAge won out because of the fact that it perfectly fit on that wall in the configuration (I bought all of that as a kit) and I...

    Garage renovation

    Sorry for the long delay but here is my before/current shots and information. Also sorry for the long post/thread hijack!!I bought my house with a four-car garage (just shy of 900 sq. ft.) back in 2017. The garage was a big selling point. It's not nearly as big as I'd like (just parking a...

    Throttle Body Rebuild Kit

    That looks basically like a 1g unit (since it has the external idle switch) so I'm willing to bet the kit will work without any issues. I'll send you a PM with more info.

    Throttle Body Rebuild Kit

    In looking at the GVR4 throttle body, it looks different than the 1g/2g throttle body and I'm going to guess the hardware will probably not work. I haven't been able to confirm yet if the shaft seals will work as I can't seem to find size information. Are you still running the factory throttle...

    Garage renovation

    For what it's worth, vinyl floor tiles make minor scale adjustments easy. My garage floor is pretty darn level but I still need to shim some of the pads just a bit. I've just always been of the mindset that concrete will shift/settle/etc. to something out of level, so if you can get it as...

    Garage renovation

    I just got done doing a garage renovation of my four-car garage. I'll do a write-up in the next couple of days as I need some time to sit down and remember everything that I did as well as get pictures organized.As for the flooring options, I have considered polyaspartic coating as it has...

    Resolved 2g Camshaft Sensor Positioning Cylinder Install

    If you look at the link/pictures above and also look at the unit in your hand, you'll notice that the two tall, outer sections are actually different lengths (the one at the top of your picture is shorter than the one at the bottom). If you compare it to the pictures above, you'll notice the...

    Throttle Body Rebuild Kit

    I have only had about a handful of people ask me for a '90 rebuild kit so it hasn't been worth my time or effort. The seals are different as is most of the hardware than the '91-'99 kit. I had someone try it out years ago and they were not able to use most of the pieces. Your best bet would...

    2G 2g DSM Engine Bay Electrical Connections

    See the post right above yours. It goes to the capacitor/noise condenser. It's a small, silver cylinder that's usually bolted to the intake manifold.

    2G First time road course

    Depending on what organization, novices usually don't have much downtime. They go from class to track to car control and repeat. Here's a sample schedule from a group I run with frequently that you can check out the first time/novice schedule...

    2G First time road course

    You should go into your first experience with eyes open, ears open, and the full intent to learn. You can read all about driving on a track, play video games, etc. but I don't think much will prepare you for the information overload you're going to experience. Learning the racing line...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    I'd sell the car before going RWD. That's way too much work for a cheap FWD road race car that I can't easily get most parts for.

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    In talking with @twicks69 it may or may not be. He sounded fairly confident in the diagnosis as apparently they're the weak links in the transmission, but it's also going to be interesting to find out what else was taken out in the process. I was flat towed back to the pits so I'm sure that...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    It's really not that bad to do. I've had one along with the appropriate 1g column adapter sitting in a box for the better part of a decade. The main issue is that no one that I'm aware of has tested the airbag compatibility as most of them have the airbag removed (illegal to ship from what I...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    If there was an easy way to get a smaller wheel in these cars without having to go down the remove airbags/install cage and harnesses path, we would've done it already! They are huge and cause issues with our knees hitting them with how close we have to sit and how the higher side bolsters...

    RIP Curt Brown

    I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a post by Samantha of @MorrisonFab that Curt Brown had passed away today from a hit and run while on his bicycle. I was not close with him and probably only spoke with him once or twice but he was a legend in the DSM community. It's always sad...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    Not giving me credit AND a broken link? Sheesh. :rolleyes: ROFL (I fixed it for you.)No worries, Corey. This project has taken way too long for sure. The solution is probably about as elegant and simple as we could have made it while still having the most solid tow point possible.

    2G Rebuilding throttle body

    A few comments:Just because there were no hoses running to the FIAV nipples does not mean the previous owner properly blocked off the FIAV. You need to check and see if there's a plate between the throttle body and the FIAV and ideally what type of plate (bypass or blockoff). You'll be able...

    Throttle Body Rebuild Kit

    Sorry, I do not. The '90 throttle bodies used very different hardware setups and I hardly have anyone ask about them so I didn't feel it was worth it to build a kit.

    ECMlink Adjust Your TPS!

    When I set up 1g throttle bodies, while there is a spec for how to set the idle switch/throttle body stop (@steve has posted about it before), I only adjust it to make sure the throttle body doesn't stick. I set it in place, lock it down, and then open the throttle body by hand and let it slam...

    2G Carbonetics AB Hood (Pictures)

    I had a similar situation when ordering hoods from him. It all boils down to whether you want the part or want good customer service. I was quoted 18-20 weeks for two hoods and it ended up taking almost double that. But I wanted those hoods and did not have a timeline I was trying to meet...
