  1. Sparco vs Any Other Seat

    I'll second that...don't buy somethin you haven't sat in... and sit in it for a minute or two... get comfortable... you'll be spending a great deal of time there... it's worth the extra couple hundred...
  2. Sparco vs Any Other Seat

    and yeah, bride makes a sweet seat, but they're crazy expensive....haha, speaking of that, guess how much just the bottom cusion of the evo8 recaro seats cost...just the bottom...$1300... even the dealer was laughin his ass off... cost is $1000...that's just for the bottom!!a4 in a...
  3. Sparco vs Any Other Seat

    eh, i'm gonna have to disagree, i'm runnin a sparco star right now and it's a little small on me. my buddy's torinos are just right... unless he had the side bolsters pushed out or re-welded. i'm not sure if they're torino or torino 2 but they look like the newer ones... and i remember the...
  4. Who can tint windows in chicago?

    well, i tried my hand at tinting back when i had my camaro...and yeah, that back window was an absolute pita. it's not really doing it that's hard, but there's a bunch of little tricks of the trade that I don't know...those tricks that keep your tint from peeling after a year, and keep nasty...
  5. Sparco vs Any Other Seat

    if i remember right though... i've sat in an a4 and the bottom cusion is pretty slender...it's for guys with a waist of 34 or less...because I remember it being really tight on me. I sat in the torino a week or two ago and it was definatly wider. The a4 reminded me of the sparco star from a...
  6. Who can tint windows in chicago?

    all my other cars have been pretty tinted, and i've never had problems... it all depends on how you drive...some people are askin to get pulled over, ya know... just ask corey ;-)I was hopin I could find a guy I could swap services with... like he/she could tint my windows and I could do...
  7. Sparco vs Any Other Seat

    I'm just curious why milanos instead of torinos? or is if for the material..aren't they suade?as far as differences, yeah, there's a ton... and most of em have to do with your size.as far as height...sparcos go up higher so it actually acts as a headrest... many others don't go up...
  8. Top 5 subs?

    okay...i saw this post and knew i'd get a good laugh... alrightfirst off, this should've been mentioned in the very first post... like asking what the "best car is"and...absolutly correct - it's all about the install... I don't recall the name of the guy. but a few years...
  9. Who can tint windows in chicago?

    I'm not lookin for shops, I'm lookin for dsmers... someone good obviously. Pm me and we can work somethin out. I'm in the south suburbs of chicago.
  10. Targa T-top [Merged 7-7] T tops targas conversion

    they're built on a different unibody with a stiffer undercarraige... which is another reason it's heavier...and it's still not the stiffest platform. another reason spyders aren't exactly the autocrosser's #1 choice.aside from the targa part, ever jack up a 1g on one corner?...that one...
  11. un-fog headlights and clear corners

    The actual fogging I'm referring to is a result of moisture inside the headlight housing. When you pull them apart, obviously you'll probably clean the inside of it with windex to get the dust and stuff out. but the real source of the problem is a leak around the seal of the headlights and a...

  13. 8's in your doors

    You’ll also have to trim a little off from around the lower part of the door panel behind the grill. This is a trial and error process, of putting the door panel on temporarily with the grill off, and seeing where the baffle/speaker hits the door panel. A dremel or a rotozip are excellent...
  14. 8's in your doors

    Also, you’ll have to do a little work to the door panel. First you’ll pull off the speaker grill; it’ll get in your way. And cut out the cross hatching that sits behind it. I pretty much cut all the way around the shape of the grill, just leaving about 1cm of edge for the grill to mount back...
  15. 8's in your doors

    Now the 8s don’t exactly drop right in, but it’s close. You obviously took out the 6 1/2s from the factory and the plastic bezel they were mounted to. And you saw how big that hole was, and thought, man this is gonna be simple…well kind of. Once I got to this point (see pic above), I took my...
  16. 8's in your doors

    If you’ve never worked with dynamat before, here’s my advice; get dynamat, the actual brand, it cost a buck or two more per square foot, but it’s worth it. I’ve used the stuff from McMaster Carr, I’ve used rolled roofing, and nothing adheres better, is easier to work with, or gets the job done...
  17. 8's in your doors

    Well, I know there’s gotta be a few more audiophiles out there like myself…or at least a few guys who feel that the biggest and best is just par for them. Well whichever camp you’re in, if you own a 2g DSM, you’re gonna want 8s in your doors. Now this can only be done on certain models. If I...
  18. un-fog headlights and clear corners

    Here’s a set of 97 headlights that I re-sealed and cleared the corners.There are a ton of myths out there that you’ll ruin your headlights when doing this project… They’re all B.S.I’ve done it on 3 sets so far w/no problems.
  19. un-fog headlights and clear corners

    You can see the cleared corners, but I used amber corner bulbs to keep the factory lighting look.
  20. un-fog headlights and clear corners

    Let them dry overnight so the paint has a chance to cure, reinstall the corner lens and put the bezel back in. Now you’ll have to pick up some sealant. I used silicone on one set, and rtv on another, both worked fine. There is a groove around the headlight housing that will already have the...
  21. un-fog headlights and clear corners

    Now I painted mine emerald green to match my car and cleared them to get the same finish. Be careful if you paint them, because you’re still painting plastic. Be sure to get the surface as clean as possible before you start painting. Below is the finished product.
  22. un-fog headlights and clear corners

    I’m sure many of you have questioned how to un-fog your 95-99 headlights. I don’t have a before picture, because who wants to see condensation in a headlight. I started this project with a set of 96’ headlights in perfect condition.With the headlights off the car, first pull off the...
  23. Relocate battery to the rear

    All right, many have asked this, and I've done it on my last 3 cars, two of which were dsms, a 95 2gnt, and a 99 gsx. So here ya go...Pick up (2) 20' lengths of 4-ga cable from your local stereo shop. The better the cable you get, the higher strand count and better conductivity. Color is...
  24. Battery relocation [Merged 3-8]

    All right, I'll clear a few things up here...As far as drilling holes through the firewall... it's been 3 years since I did an install in a 1g, so another one of you guys will have to help him on this part.On a 2g-turbo car, run these down the passenger side, and drill your holes low on...
  25. Subwoofer quik release?????

    well, if the amp is mounted to the car and the box is free, then the answer to that is obvious, but it sounds like you have the amp mounted to the box, and you wanna pull out the whole deal... if you have a multi-channel amp and are powering your front/rear speakers with it, then you've just...
  26. what things can i do to my 4g63 motor to prevent crankwalk??

    All of the above... you can also pull your upper clutch sensor plug so the vehicle can start w/out pushing the clutch in, thus not putting pressure on the thrust bearing when the motor is cold. Haven't discovered any ill effects to pulling that plug. It looks to be only used for starting...

  28. Awd Donuts

    I'll have a movie posted soon of our fun last night...and i wouldnt' consider it a doughnut, more of a car just spinning on it's axis... but yes, crazy fun in the snow!!
  29. motor mount inserts for 99 auto?

    anybody slap motor mount inserts in your 2g auto??
  30. motor mount inserts for 99 auto?

    I picked up the prothane kit and went to install the rear mount... only to find that the kit must be for a manual only...can anyone confirm this? or is there a 2g auto rear mount out there?if not I suppose I'll go the window-weld route. but let me know... thanks in advance!
  31. Turbo timer and remote start.

    pretty much all of em should work. the only problem you run into on some of them is that you can't arm the vehicle till it stops running. DEI units have an AWD(arm while driving) that should recify that problem.
  32. Security Device.

    haha, pm me and i'll tell ya a couple ways to do it. 40 hrs wasn't just for the fuel pump. and it was actually more like 80-100hrs... the only way the car could be stolen is if you back up a flatbed and drag the sucker on, and it definatly wouldn't go quietly.on my 95 gs, i had a viper...
  33. is my knock sensor out?

    awesome, thanks alot. I've been looking into it as much as i can and I think you're right on the money, I've got some lifter tick I'm trying to elieviate as well. I just ordered a new 2g knock sensor, I'm trying to hold off on replacing the lifters untill I can pick up a built head. If i were...
  34. changing ecu to eprom what do i have to do

    it should have a little "E" in the corner of the casing. as soon as I can take a look at one(hopefully this weekend), I'll know exactly what to look for in the future.
  35. is my knock sensor out?

    bov isn't vented to the atmosphere.this is a timing related problem...what would pull the timing while just cruising, but not retard timing at wot??
  36. is my knock sensor out?

    when I'm just cruisin on the highway, around 70-80mph, I'm just under boost, like -5 to 0 vac. When it goes just into boost (slowly accelerating), it bucks a little and my egt shoots to 1600+, and i have to keep it at 70 just to keep it around 1450-1500, any faster and its at 1600. but, when I...

  38. Pushing 19psi on T25 HELP!

    that does make sense.... I was running around 18-19 before I put in the mbc, and If it was at it's lowest point, I could control it around 11-13lbs or so, which is stock i guess. so yeah.I would still say go with an MBC, even make one if you have to. and just replacing the mess of vacuum...
  39. Pushing 19psi on T25 HELP!

    yeah, you can turn down the boost with a mbc. if you think spiking at 19 is bad, iamclp1 was runnin a solid 18-19 lbs stock till I was able to turn it down. we were getting spikes in the range of 22lbs.but yeah, it can't be good to run that much. I'd like to see a compressor map of the...
  40. Lookin for my old car...

    I'll probably post this a couple different places. I'm kinda curious where my old 95 GS is and how it's doin. I sold it to a girl in Millwaukee. It was basically stock, but had a few things that would make it stand out.it's an emrald green gs with a VW antenna mounted in front of the...
  41. Full Boost by when?

    Granted I'm all about makin money... but it doesn't matter who you are, someone owns a dsm, and wants help, I'd be there for em in a second. That's what sets us apart from nissan and honda guys. We don't stand around saying "my [email protected] bigger then yours". We'll help eachother because we want...

  43. 95 vs. 99 ecu?

  44. 95 vs. 99 ecu?

    so i actually could swap ecus then?
  45. 95 vs. 99 ecu?

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but I gave up searching...i have a buddy with a 95 tsi awd showcar that wouldn't ever need dsmlink. Can I swap him ecus 99 for 95, and run the 95 for a month or so till I pick up a dsmlink, while he runs my 99 ecu?the 95 is OBD I and the 99 is OBD...
