    1G w5m33 3rd gear sub gear?

    Noise suppression. I take them out usually, they just seem to grab shrapnel and pull it into unharmed gears

    blew up 2nd gear

    That's an oddity for sure. I've only had 1 second get damaged, and it was shrapnel that did it.

    I'll get a video next time. I do it on my dogbox cause it's got the pin inside a pin and it's impossible to knock out

    jacks 3/4 fork additional roll pin how to remove

    Yes you can! It sucks, but it's doable. Gotta get 1/2 out of the way first. turn 5/r so it points off to the side and it'll come out. You'll cuss at it and scratch your head for a while, but it'll go.

    Paul's 1993 GSX - VMC Panda

    That's in a sweet spot where the trans will live well. It doesn't take much more torque to put them into carry a golf clicker with you terrritory.

    jacks 3/4 fork additional roll pin how to remove

    Are you just trying to take the trans apart, or replace the fork?You should be able to get the trans apart without taking it off. I do that all the time.Replacing the fork I think you will have to cut it off, and then the rail might be worthless. Idk if there is enough meat left to do...

    Street Build 1G Build: Return of the DSMer!

    Not saying that killed the rod, but it had too much timing in it. Wild to see one break like that. Usually it's pulled the pin out of the piston, or it spun a rod bearing and torched the big end. Good call on not doing 1400HD's or you'd be doing this again sooner than you'd like. The...

    2G Willwood Master Brake Cylinder, Clutch Cylinder and Pedal Install

    I hope you realize what you are getting into. I know for certain what you want to do is not possible on a 1g. It puts the clutch master cylinder inside the frame rail. hopefully a 2g is enough different that it's not an issue.Also, there are plates available to put a wilwood master on a...

    I'm currently using a wilwood kit from an SRT4 that I modified. Redrilled the hats, and made new caliper brackets. There is a wilwood kit for 2g dsm, but it'll go right on a 1g. Idk why they don't list them for both.I'm sure you can do it pretty cheap if you scrounge. My brother got...

    Cylinder head combustion chamber flaws

    Look at all the valves... Was this sliding around in a gravel parking lot?Lay a gasket on it and see what it looks like. If its inside the fire ring, smooth it out. If not, plan on finding a new head.

    2G Need some professional advice please! Can I use this block?

    The problem with a 2.3 is that it makes more torque - besides the cylinder wall issues. We only have a 9" clutch and a trans rated for 280ft*lbs. In theory the 2.3 is a great idea, but in actuality the slight gain in spool up isn't worth the loss in rpm potential. A bunch of the fast guys...

    2G Need some professional advice please! Can I use this block?

    Yes, a bearing goes there. That looks like it was rusty and cleaned up or something. I Don't think it will really affect anything, but it depends on how much material is missing and would likely run it if I did't have a better block. But my professional advice is that it needs to be...

    Who is going to the Shootout in OCTOBER?

    CTS-V Brake Upgrade Spacer Question

    CTS-V Brake Upgrade Spacer Question

    I'm just gonna put this out there, but if you are running the car hard enough that you need that much brakes, you shouldn't be running spacers. Also It's really hard to find wide wheels that actually fit. Nothing has enough offset, and spacers will make that worse.third point, if you are...

    Show us your CARNAGE PICTURES!!!!

    I thought that was like the first law of auto dsm, never let it have even 1psi in overdrive. Actually I think even pretty much all older automatics ever, don't abuse them in overdrive. Can't really be mad/blame the car for user error.

    Whatever puts the fingers just above flat most likely. It's really not a huge deal like everyone makes it out to be. Especially if you are not trying to jam gears at 10k.

    I used to run xtd stuff, but back in 2012ish. The old stage 4 pressure plates were actually 2300lbs. A good oem mitssu 1g stock one is about 2200. I've been told repeatedly that they are supposed to be 1700lbs, but I've tested and they were 2200. I tested ACT2600's and 2900's and they...

    High boost headgasket question

    Well for me it's not necessarily slower at higher boost. Nor it is going faster on less boost. It's taking less power to run the same number. it's getting better at utlizing the power. I guess I'm not really sure if it will go better turned up, I've not turned it up. It is running what I...

    High boost headgasket question

    I don't think you need 49 to run 8's. It really looks like you need to slow down and work out the kinks before you keep going out loaded for bear.story time. Back in the day it used to take almost 40psi for my car to go 11.0's-10.8's. And I was trying all sorts of stuff to get it to...

    High boost headgasket question

    in 2022 I think I'm at the point where I can say that if you need more than a composite will do, you also need a filled block. Also when you are playing around at very high boost like 49, you can't let it hit the revlimit or do things like that. Does all sort of wierd things to combustion...

    Fuel System Flow vs. Pressure Drop.

    10 years later, and I'm still running the same line/filter setup. I have 2 walbro 255's running into it though. Enough fuel for the car to trap 144 when it weighed 3150. I figure that's around 700 at the tire. Probably going to ditch the walbros for a big single brushless fuelab now.

    1G 7-Bolt Hydraulic Tensioners, R.I.P. (Mitsu Kills another one...)

    2G Clutch Drag Issue (What would you do)

    Try a 1g slave. ACT juggles the fulcrum dia (leverage ratio) to keep the pedal pressure reasonable. So you end up needing a lot more TOB travel to release it. In most cases you can't make a 2600 work good because the fingers will hit the disc before it releases. setup a dial indicator and...
