    Resolved Precision SCM6131RS Capabilities?

    Yes and no. 35R comp wheel. T04S comp cover. T3 stage III 76 trim T31 turbine wheel. BB center but not the garrett 35R type. Bolt-on hotside that they claim is .63AR but flows more like a 7cm.

    1G wheel and tire size on lowered 1G

    They barely clear the strut spring perches in the front - would be fine with coilovers. Had to clearance the trailing arms in the rear a little.

    1G wheel and tire size on lowered 1G

    As stated above, a 255/40 on a 17 x 9 +35 to 45 is about the most you'd want to run on a 1G. I've got 17x8 +48 wheels with 245/40s that fit great on my car.

    General Intake options 1gb (1993)

    On race gas, that extra timing really woke these cars up back in the day. We ran 11.0 @ 126 on a VPC, 550s, 20g, 272s, and no wideband. Stock 1G 7 bolt, head and intake manifold. Just plain old C16, leaned out, and 25+ degrees of timing at 30 psi. On pump, different story. You're not running...

    General Intake options 1gb (1993)

    They cancel out because you're telling the ECU that it's seeing less airflow, which makes it deliver less fuel. The bigger injectors cancel this by flowing more at the same duty cycle. The side effect, however, is that now the ECU is on a lower load table with more timing. May be a good thing on...

    The 14b Drag Race Discussion Thread

    It's still together, the drivetrain is going into my friend's car but he's not the type to make much progress so I may dig it out again. I'd guesstimate it at around 2100 lbs without me. I'd love to get into tubular subframes, CF body parts, etc to get the weight down more but I don't have the...

    1G Question about removing rear CV axles on 1G AWD

    Watch the video, he does some things the hard way but it answers everything. Rears are easier than fronts, you don't need to press the bearings out, they just tap right out.

    It's almost as if you didn't actually watch the video you posted above ;)

    1G Question about removing rear CV axles on 1G AWD

    Yes, if you unbolt the nut that holds the axle cup on, you can just tap the axles out pretty easily. I disassembled to do all urethane bushings and toe elim (you can see both in the pic).

    1G Question about removing rear CV axles on 1G AWD

    You don't need to remove the hubs/bearings to get the axles out of the rear of a 1G. There are 3 or 4 bolt axle cups, you just unbolt the axle flange from the cup flange.

    GVR-4 Bolt on turbo recommendation

    The car actually made 479/443 that day and would've easily cracked 500whp if I had more time ( it wasn't a tuning session, just a 3 pulls for fun dyno day). If anyone remembers Wendy's FWD build (Girlieracr4G63), she had an S258 bolt-on with a built engine and made 545 whp.

    What Turbo is this? [Merged] Turbo ID Identification

    Definitely not a 3065, which used the GT3582R comp wheel. You can identify those by the hex nut shaped casting at the inducer side of the wheel. It's not anything HTA/HTZ because they're 7 blade and you can easily tell the difference between billet wheels and cast. This also has a .60AR hotside...

    V3 software and cable will work with V2 on a 1G, you just have to select the V2 chip in the "configure connection" settings.

    1G 1g dsm 1990 awd outlander brake system on my wheel rims

    Yes, if you have factory dual piston calipers you just need the brackets and rotors. Less prone to warp, less fade with repeated stops, and the rotor design is different so they're negligibly heavier than stock rotors.
  19. Steve93Talon

    1G 1g dsm 1990 awd outlander brake system on my wheel rims

    No, there are no drop-in rear options for a 1G that retain the parking brake. And only a few kits if you were ok with eliminating it.

    1G 1g dsm 1990 awd outlander brake system on my wheel rims

    Sorry, thought since you had 2G wheels it was a 2G car. Yes, for an early 1G, you'll want any 92.5-up AWD brake caliper which will bolt right onto the outlander bracket. Ideally you want to stay with 1G calipers as the 2G and non-DSM ones have different attachments for the lines (inverted flare...

    1G 1g dsm 1990 awd outlander brake system on my wheel rims

    Is your car AWD? If so, you use your existing calipers and just change the brackets. I run the Outlander brakes with my 15" slicks and they clear, and they'll clear some of the OEM 16" wheels with plenty of room, but it depends on the spoke design, width, offset, etc.
  23. Steve93Talon

    1G 1g dsm 1990 awd outlander brake system on my wheel rims

    They're VERY close but do clear on 1GA Talon wheels. You should be ok, but may want to get one bracket and try it out first (assuming you already have 2 piston calipers).

    1G Stock location air to water intercooler

    I ran a couple different ones on my old car. First was an OEM Syclone IC that I had modified. 5 gallon fuel cell in the trunk, OEM Ford Lightning pump and heat exchanger. Worked ok at lower power, but I ended up changing to a Bell core which worked great. No blocking the radiator, can keep AC...

    AER Valve Covers

    Definitely not. They're casting their own. Cap, AN ports, area where the bolt holes are... Nice step between a stocker and the FF billet option. If they offered it without the logo it'd be way more appealing though.

    DSM on Bring a Trailer

    Aftermarket sunroof kills it, not to mention the repaint wasn't done correctly - wing should be matte black. A true DSMer who wants one to collect would hold out for a more original car.

    HTA vs. HTZ - what's the difference?

    What factors made you crazy about DSM?

    Agreed. My first car was a '93 AWD Talon 5spd, tan leather, no sunroof. When I got it, there were still plenty of nice ones around, but by '07 I was frequently told it was the cleanest DSM they'd ever seen by locals. I always refused to gut the car or do a cage, it was always a street car. I...

    What factors made you crazy about DSM?

    I was into V8s in the 90s, had a few Mustangs. A friend was into GNs and he eventually got a Typhoon which turned me on to the potential of an AWD launch and turbo power. I'd always liked the 1GB Talon looks, more classy and sporty than the typical Honda/Sentra SE-R econobox look. And the...

    1G Is it normal for your coolant to pressurize while doing a BLT?

    You don't need a block-off or bypass plate. You can pop the freeze plug out and turn the FIAV in until it's closed, then re-install the freeze plug with some fast dry/hard set sealant.

    Yes, to clarify, my comments about the failures in the bolt-on housing were specific to the HX40, not the 35.I've also seen my share of GT35R turbine wheels melting the tips in the same way in the FP35 housing. Something the new G series turbine wheels seem to have improved finally (not that...

    Kinugawa Turbo?

    If you're only making 380whp on a 20g you're doing something VERY wrong. A small 16g can do that. And something larger TD05H turbine wheel is needed for a 20g to max out without insane pressure ratios. I've run them with a heavily clipped 05H and an 06H wheel, I'd love to try one in a 6SL2...

    Advice on twin disc that won’t damage input shaft

    I've experienced the same. Previous build had a PTT and it was a nightmare. Impossible to street drive smoothly, just an on/off switch. We even tried a 2g accumulator to dampen it, which barely made a difference. Current race car has a QM with the gear drive discs and it is night and day better...

    1G Bone Stock DSM Hitting Fuel Cut @ 4500RPM

    If you jumped the actuator to the boost source on the j pipe and it's still overboosting (which you can't confirm unless you throw in a real boost gauge), then it's possible that the wastegate flapper is stuck shut. Can you put compressed air to the actuator and see if the arm swings open freely?

    1G Bone Stock DSM Hitting Fuel Cut @ 4500RPM

    Post pics of the MAF (and try swapping it if you can find another unmodded one). You can also pull the lower honeycomb which was the old trick for raising the fuel cut threshold, though I'd probably figure out what changed first. You need to get a proper boost gauge to see what your actual boost...
