    Will definitely be getting in on this. I haven’t broken a set yet but I’m not about to break that record. :P

    1G OEM auto Seat/seat belt install

    Can we get pictures of the actual track and motor system installed too? Like where does the motor even mount and is there a relay or something? For the auto portion of the belts.

    2G F&F model but with a twist..

    I did it a lot when younger, then right before 2020’s BS I got into it again, but got sick of everyone else doing it too and driving all the prices of everything through the roof. I still have a few kits I haven’t finished yet. Lately I’ve been more into Gunpla.The cool thing is even with...

    2G F&F model but with a twist..

    This is USA level 2 and is definitely glue together.I’ve done a level 5 kit and it was a blast honestly. It was a nascar stock car and the fine details were phenomenal. This was like, 18-20 years ago though. Lol.

    2G F&F model but with a twist..

    I paid like $45-$50USD for this kit so it’s honestly not that much more if you convert it to Canadian Monopoly money.

    2G F&F model but with a twist..

    Gotcha. I was just like WTF. LolEdit: figured I’d take pictures anyway if anyone was curious. There are two hoods included, one has the little vent hole and the other is clear(that instructions say can be left clear or painted body color). The body itself has no roof vent as pictures show, and...

    Links? Of the old kit? Not sure I can find them anywhere anymore. I’ll take pics of my unassembled kit when I get home though.

    2G F&F model but with a twist..

    It’s the same as the older revell kit. I have one on my dresser that’s not been put together yet but all the pieces are the same.

    2G Thermal R&D Mufller

    No not that muffler. This one. https://a.co/d/g5DdRA6Drone was non-existent. I could honestly barely hear it in the cabin with the windows up. When I romped on it I could hear it but it was nice and deep tone. Here’s a short in cabin clip with the windows cracked.And this is the inside...

    2G Thermal R&D Mufller

    Thermal R&D mufflers for these cars are the exact same as the flow master 3” in/out mufflers(part # 14834). Just recently compared the two in person and they’re the same. As Steve said though a ton of the sound is also piping diameter/bends/etc. But having the same muffler is at least some of...

    OEM Straight-Cut Oil Pump Gears Available

    Had a 2G pistons 1G rods 6 bolt engine(aka stock rebuild, don’t wanna say I “built” it) that actually reused the original front pump w/helical gears with unknown mileage on the pump itself, that is still running to this day. Like 8-9 years and at minimum 80k mile later. Lol.Edit: duh. Forgot...

    OEM Straight-Cut Oil Pump Gears Available

    People have deleted the BS for 20 years even on stock rebuilds. Lol.But basically I’m gonna say no. Mindblowin has a good post with the side load/wear but that was after a very long time. My feelings unless they’re fact checked, are these are a novelty and not a necessity.

    Can I ask a question that is probably silly?Has anyone stripped the OEM helical pump gears because of power production? Why is everyone after the straight cut gears?

    1G Can a N/A 2.0 FWD TCU work on my turbo AWD?

    To answer the thread question yes, you can use the n/t TCU in an awd dsm. The shift points will just be a little bit different.You are 100% describing internal issues with the trans. Hard to tell what the random piece is but suffice to say something isn’t kosher. Could always pull the end...

    Can I just borrow it and ship it back to you? :PAlso, that socket in the balance shaft hole kills me. The engine that Stevie Miller from Miller Import Parts sold me that was “OEM freshly rebuilt” had the thinnest most pathetic rtv coat “sealing” the holes in the unflipped bearings. I would’ve...

    Resolved Special tools for front case seals, balance shafts

    What did you use to pull/rotate the bearings? I have always used the end of the balance itself but that’s when I’ve deleted them myself. This time they’ve already been deleted and I really don’t want to buy a bearing puller/whatever. I also really don’t want to yank this engine out if it doesn’t...

    Boostin Performance has gone 6s!!!!! 6.98 @ 215

    They took the ET but red demon is still the fastest MPH wise. They’re like .07 apart right now and Devon’s 6.97 pass at WCF was made when he was down 3 rockers and had a small crack in the intercooler. It became a big crack when he went up against Mike/GAStroker.Needless to say, he’ll have...

    2G IPT trans shiftkit ?

    Easy is relative/different for each person. I think it’s easy, but others may say it’s difficult. It can be done with basic hand tools, with the transmission still in the car yes. John at IPT/Import Performance Transmission has a video on their website and on YouTube with how to install a shift...

    Official Bench Racing Thread (how fast is my car/how much HP can I expect)

    100% agreed, man. There’s a GT350R on the road next to mine that’s just asking to be gapped. Wouldn’t take much especially since his is stock and these roads suck. He refuses to race my edge from a dead stop. 100% sure the stock edge would gaptize him from a dig on these roads especially on the...

    2G IPT trans shiftkit ?

    Definitely is must do for any automatic performance car. Even unmodified automatic cars benefit from a shift kit! The shift kit itself has difference springs so if it shifts too harsh for your liking you can use a softer spring for softer shifts.Best mod for an auto all day. :)
  29. CrackedDSM

    2G IPT trans shiftkit ?

    Simple answer is it adjusts pressures and flow of fluid. This results in a firmer shift and longer clutch pack life because it’s not slipping as much.

    Tell them to start making bolt on .55 housings for hx35s. :P
  31. CrackedDSM

    So i bought a locked 2G Eclipse....

    This was going to be my suggestion. It’s a good thing these cars aren’t super high demand because they are ridiculously easy to break in to. Pull the window, hanger down the side, break the door handle, etc. bunch of ways.

    2G DSM on Bring a Trailer

    Yeah, I’m speaking from experience though. I’ve lived in the same neck of the woods as Stevie Miller from Miller Import Parts and he would go around bidding up any local DSMs just to part them out and crush them. I personally got snaked out of a GST that was clean and completely rust free...

    It’s not just him. There are members here on this site that hoarded parts and refused to sell any only to lose them all.

    2G DSM on Bring a Trailer

    I both love and hate this guy(seller). I love that his DSMs went for a good price as it might indicate these cars being collectibles(so STOP SELLING TO DSM JUNKYARDS!!) but I hate him because everyone with a junker dsm wants $15,000 firm I know what I got.

    The way is to live beneath your means and find yourself a partner who wants you to be happy and doesn’t give a f*ck what you spend on the cars as long as it doesn’t take food from their mouths or your kids mouths.I will never understand this every single time I hear it. This is not okay. This...

    2G My 97' Eclipse GS has a 4g63, can I turbo it? Plus other questions.

    The factory 1g timing maps are hilariously aggressive. You’re honestly right though because the 2G ones are way soft. And there are multiple maps in the stock code not just one or two. So in all actuality he might not be that bad off if he keeps it on wastegate pressure. Throttle response and...

    2G My 97' Eclipse GS has a 4g63, can I turbo it? Plus other questions.

    Pretty sure the NA 4G63's in the EU spec 2G's are 10:1. They may not take as well to boost as the 9:1 n/t pistons from the 6 bolts. Not sure what kind of fuel they have in Portugal and if they have E85 or high octane like Japan has or not.Also: That is an extremely nice overflow tank for...
