    I have a problem with my cars electrical. While driving on Sunday I noticed my Brake, Radiator, and Battery light flickering on and off.. I had this problem before, I thought I had fixed it by tightning the battery terminals. Which were a little loose. Today I start looking around for loose...
  6. Pretty Good Tribute To PAT TILLMAN

    There was a hour long documentary on Pat Tillman. I cant remember the channel right now but what an American. He lived the American dream, I cant see anyone not recognizing his love for everything he did.. And all that he achieved, in such a short period of time.
  7. how many times has your dsm been on a tow truck

    Had mine two years now, and 40,000 miles later I'm glad to say it's never been towed. And even better has only left me stranded once. But that was when I just got the car back and the shop blew my alt fuse. New batt and fuse all was good. :thumb:

  9. rad,bat,brake light

    Every once in a while these three lights come on for about two or three seconds then they go out..It's very intermittent, and I don't know what would cause this. I have a new bat and alt. and my voltage doesn't drop when the three lights are on.. And the car seems to run fine throughout the...
  10. ACT 2100 Clutch Morning Issuses? Whos Got One?

    I have the 2100, and no I havn't had that problem.. The only thing I noticed was it took a long time to break in. But that is also due the fact I dont drive many city miles.. But never had a problem with the clutch slipping in the morning, or anytime...

  14. 80's sleeper, rare other otherwise unknown rockets

    When discussing "sleeper's" hind sight is 20/20.. But these cars of the day when they came out were indeed sleepers.. Granted we caught on real quick the potential of them, however in the early stages of seeing them we knew little.. I can remember a friend of mine telling me about a stock...

  21. Rebuilding credit, need some help

    A relativly quick and safe way is to get a secured credit card. Basicly you put up the money and they extend you credit against your deposit. Say 300.00. As time passes and you prove yourself credit worthy they'll increase your credit and not ask for an additional deposit. Eventually you'll get...
  22. ACT 2100 clutch, do you NEED a new flywheel?

    Just a quick comment. I reused my stock flywheel when I had my 2100 put in. And so far so good. Took my clutch a while to break in, so just be paitent. Now it's working really well, and I have had no problems what so ever.
  23. bigger turbo = psi = power?

    Let me try...Lets say you have two household fans. One is 12" in diameter and the other is 16" in diameter. You have it rigged so they both spin at the exact rpm. The larger fan will push more air at the same rpm. The psi doesn't change, just the amount of air being pushed. More psi means...

  31. evo3 with 550's

    I was actually thinking more like 15-17 psi. I heard that is where the evo does really well. I just wanted to know what was the best way to get their without having to use dsmlink. I may in the future be interested in that but right now funds are limited. So if I could get their for around...
