    Aw4g63, landoawd where you at. All members from the early 2000's check in.

    Just popping in the Hangout to see what's going on. Couldn't find the exact thread I was looking for, but this will do.Always good to see old names still at it.

    RIP DSMTrader... those were different times.

    Rear tires for fwd

    Run a light wheel and tire combo.Personally I wouldn't run slicks on the back. You want as little rolling resistance possible on the back.

    RIP Curt Brown

    Remember walking over to his pit at the Shootout just to say hello. This was when he ran the Black 1gb and noticed this pile of "stuff" there. I kind of glanced around for him and all the sudden I hear this scraping noise... he was pulling his entire exhaust off too! Thought it was pretty great...

    Anybody have any insight on this? Seems to be very hard to diagnose.

    1G Any smaller brake booster for 1g?

    The Non turbo booster is much slimmer than a turbo unit and bolts right in.

    1G To upgrade Intercooler or not

    Look over your logged intake air temps after a long pull and see if they are in an acceptable range like others have mentioned. We could use some real data to form these opinions of ours. ;)

    1G Idle Surge (up & down)

    Any cracks in the air intake tube?

    1G Does anyone know where these connectors lead?

    First picture, single pin is your Tachometer test connection.Second picture looks like the factory cruise control plug.Neither of which will cause idle surge.

    1G No start+coolant leak

    Im surprised it even runs with compression that low... two gauges? same readings?Front end leak would likely be the water pump. The belt doesnt always get wet when it leaks. Makes sense as the motor turned the shaft seal would leak.

    Resolved What else causes reverse pop out?

    I'm personally hoping a deeper engagement fixes the issue. Wondering if the worn gear was allowing it to ride up and disengage.

    3D-printed shift display housing for ForcedFour shiftbox.

    I have my smart box wired to the buttons on my steering wheel after not really finding any paddle setups I liked.But that setup looks legit! Do you mind me asking who makes that paddle setup?

    Resolved What else causes reverse pop out?

    You weren't joking when you said extensive list of things checked!!! I'd be curious to see what the reverse idler gear would do for your issue. You'd be surprised how worn that gear can get when you compare it to a new one. You said there was a noticeable difference in how reverse performed...

    3D-printed shift display housing for ForcedFour shiftbox.

    Looks clean right there on the column and it should feel natural to look at in front of the gauges. Good work.I went with the gauge setup and put it in an old school MachV pod.

    1G 91 Gst weird idle

    I spliced a 2g TPS plug pigtail with the 4 wires already in it from the factory into my 1g harness. Another option is to add the wire to the 1g plug if you can find the correct style pin and wire, possibly from another TPS harness. You would simply tie the open pin into the Green idle switch...

    1G block/head rebuild, recommendations wanted

    A stock block build with the right parts, maintenance, and tune will take you to 500hp. While I don't quite make 500 hp I do have a stockish 4g63 that has treated me very well. 15 years ago I had a 4g63 put together. It had Wiseco pistons, hung on 1g fat rods and Arp head studs/cometic head...

    2G Noise at 2700rpms and above

    Remove the accessory belts and start the vehicle without them on. This will narrow the noise down in the front of the engine area where you are filming.If the noise persists inspect the timing pulleys and components for rubbing or interference.

    2G 1g CAS install timing off?

    You don't necessarily have to use the long bolt on the hydraulic tensioner to remove it... You can simply loosen the eccentric bolt, then take the two bolts out holding the auto-tensioner to the block.To re-install slowly and carefully compress the auto tensioner in a vice until you can...

    2G No shift, fixed. No 4th gear???

    The loss of Overdrive highly suggest an end clutch issue. Most likely an o-ring failure as mentioned. From my experience the outer seal has been the most common failure. Cheaper brands don't fit correctly. Fluid pressure bleeds off and the clutches cant apply.However, when the filter begins to...

    Auto transmission sluggish and shifts whenever it wants, NO CODES

    Is the transmission even shifting? Sounds like its stuck in 3rd gear (aka: limp mode)As for the connectors, match the plugs with corresponding wire colors.
