    GSX AutoX Street Mod

    Got the power steering line stuff ordered today. I am just re-doing the stock pressure line to 6an, it's going to be easier.Being in Street Mod, the rules basically say all the stock trim inside has to be there. You can slightly modify if needed but interior is really only rear seats and...

    With no autocross this weekend, I have some time to get some items sorted out.-Fuel cell heating up I basically have no heat shielding for the exhaust from the downpipe to the muffler. There is one stock heat shield by the muffler but it only shields the floor of the trunk. I didn't realize...

    Another week, another successful Autocross weekend.I didn't do too many things to the car last week. I did however get it a real alignment. Also, did some other small odds and ends. Got the boost controller hooked up again. The plan was turn the boost up to 20 and leave it there for now...

    Now for the best update of them all.Sunday was about as good as you could ask for for shaking down a car. Started off the day driving the car 20 mins to the event and ended the event driving it 20 mins home. I even had a co-driver (which I had never done in the old car) and everything went OK...

    Another great news update. I didn't wind up taking the car to the autocross a couple of weeks ago and it was for the best. It wasn't quite ready and there was no point in rushing it. I put some more miles on it and got the total new miles to a whopping 95. Everything was ok. Still left it on low...

    And now for the best update! I actually started the car on Thursday. It was a little weird getting it to idle on the 2.3 with S2 cams on first start up. But once it warmed up a bit it was ok. I got a rough idle tune going and drove the car after it warmed up. I beat on it for 11 hard miles, lots...

    What psi valve do you have for the Accusump? How did you know it wasn't working? I am curious about mine as well because when I spun the rod bearing a few years ago, my accusump was still sitting there at full pressure.

    New Product!! 2G DSM AWD-swap bushing kit

    About 2 months too late for me haha (still got your subframe bushings, of course). I just did the swap and it was a hassle to get the bolts from the donor plus the mods to the fwd car. Looks like a great kit, just like all the other products you provide.

    I used Autodesk Inventor for that one as that is what we had at work. It was also before I knew about Fusion 360 from Autodesk.

    I drew this up to try and rid the A-pillars of gauges so I don't have to look around the gauges on the Autocross course. Fits pretty good and I like the angle of the gauges to the driver.

    Where to begin. In March of 2020 I bought my first house (signed the papers literally days before everything got shutdown the first time). It is more or less half house and half garage.

    What are you waiting for?

    Started a big swap over project at the beginning of last year. Started off strong, then the list started growing. I am moving from the red car to the black car.

  30. ***** NEW PRODUCT ***** 1G + 2G FM-PRO Billet Brake Calipers Road/Race / 4 or 6 piston Modular, Evo Brembo and CTSV Alternative (OPEN)

    Question by '96dsmftw' on classified ad '***** NEW PRODUCT ***** 1G + 2G FM-PRO Billet Brake Calipers Road/Race / 4 or 6 piston Modular, Evo Brembo and CTSV Alternative (OPEN)'

    What size brake pads would be used? I ask because depending on size or vehicle the brake pad is for, the options are much more abundant. For example, there isn't much of a selection for DSM brake pads but there are for Evos (Part of the reason I did the swap). This also applies for rotors 1 and...

    GSX AutoX Street Mod

    I have a spare P/S pump I can take apart and see. However I believe the reason it is in there is so the pump doesn't over pressurize and blow the seals on the rack. It might work for a stock rev limit because the pump is spinning within stock limits. I am going to try a 8k rev limit this year...

    I was thinking of staying away from changing the crank pulley size. I was thinking of it as I need my waterpump to spin quickly because Running the car hard at slow speeds heats it up quickly. I'll look at the slower water pump. It just seems weird to me. Changing that spring is also an...

    I did think about that last season. The problem is the P/S high preasure line goes directly over the pulley. It has maybe a few mm of clearance amd wouldn't gain much from making it that small amount bigger. I would have to look into different fittings for power steering lines. Maybe a 90 out...

    Thats me. I did wind up spinning a bearing on my 3rd run the first day. Thats why the run is so bad, I could hear it as I was going around and it messed me up haha. Crappy power steering cutout also held me back. I will give an update in a few days. I have a travel home day tomorrow.
