    Help selecting an engine..

    I think someone may have just set that on there for shi*s and gigs. Nothing is remotely hooked up, it doesn't even have more than 1-2 manifold studs holding it on.I would also recommend staying away from dsm graveyard. My motor crank walked almost instantly. It wasn't even broke in yet.

    Proof DSM's can drift

    I handled mine just fine. Ofcoarse I had a 03 f150 single cab five speed with a welded rear diff and 35" toyo m/t's and drifted that just fine also. But I also went through 2 axle housings, 1 r&p, 1 drive shaft, 4 yokes, 8 carriers, ad 2 diff covers.I have my daily any other Car is just huge...

    Proof DSM's can drift

    It is proof they can drift, and the last one minute of the video he is drifting, not great but he is.Proof doesn't have to be the action it self. But what it takes to make the action happen. Every action needed to drift is there. Oversteer, coupled with the clutch dump method =ed the rear of...

    Proof DSM's can drift

    I didn't say it was drifting. But all things needed to drift are there. Just add a better driver and a hydraulic hand brake.

    Proof DSM's can drift

    I traded for my car and love it just as much maybe more than you love yours. But one thing I've learned about vehicles from rock crawling is they are just throw aways. Everything in this one will swap right into another.

    Proof DSM's can drift

    I didn't say he was trying to drift. If e was e isn't good at it, but I have done it granted I tapped a curb, no damage but it was more controlled.The technique isn't there in this video but everything needed for drifting is there.Different power distribution but look up ken block...

    Proof DSM's can drift

    I am probably gonna catch a lot of b.s. for this. But I have done it in mine, not great because I am new to awd drifting. But I found this video and with finess it can be done. Granted he isnt drifting but he isnt trying to but the start is there getting the tires to spin and over steering the...

    What antifreeze/ coolant are you using?

    I'm going with this when my build is done. Seems like the best stuff out there, worth a try to me especially if it doesn't get hot enough to boil and you can open the cap after driving any amount of time. the link doesn't work, YouTube jay lenos...

    Exhaust welding

    Flux core is just fine. Even with hard wire you can weld your exhaust without gas. It just won't be pretty or very strong. Harbor freight welder is the way to go for a cheap fix.I can't believe they would want a ridiculous amount. Exhaust shops here would charge 50$ to replace the whole...

    Broken lug nuts

    Two of the assembly's are new ones that I installed. Only one of the other hubs has it broken. I may just upgrade all the studs and lug nuts for peace of mind. I was just wondering if they were weak and just a common problem.

    Broken lug nuts

    Ok... I have replaces two hub bearings on the driver side of my car, the front and the rear, both oem. The rear I replaced when I got the car in January or February, at that time I went around the car and torqued all of my lug nuts, most were fairly loose.I haven't removed the wheel since I...

    Broken Turbo/Manifold Bolt, Will not budge!

    Had the same problem a few months ago. Find a high quality vice, clamp down on that bolt using a cheater pipe and use the turbo it self as a wrench.I fought with mine, heating freezing and pb blasting. Vise grips with the Allen head on the adjuster for maximum clamping wouldn't do it.

    Oil filter housing cooler

    Yeah, I didn't think about that. But I think I'll be ok till this weekend. The speed limit doesn't go above 45 on my way to work and neither do I unless I'm feeling squirrelly. Hahaha! I can't just keep putting water in it because it actually froze here last night and I don't wanna buy a new...

    Turbo AND Nitrous? Bolt-Ons?

    The best bang for your buck assuming your motor is up for the task is nitrous. There's a proton kit from NX "nitrous exspress" I think it's around 380$ ish.You can run nitrous a turbo and put bolt ons on your car. But I would highly recommend rebuilding your motor and replacing all your...

    Sun visor upgrade?

    I know some chrysler sebrings have leather sun visors and they are the same platform as a dodge avenger which I hear is similar to our eclipses. So I would hit the junkyard and see if they'll work.

    feeling of sadness bout my 420a

    Turbo car doesn't mean bad gas mileage, if anything you keep your foot out of it and you get better gas mileage. Mine gets 35-37 mpg. Pshhhh....keep your foot out of it. Hahahah! Anyways....I traded my rs off for the gsx I have now, takes work but it can be done. I even traded for most of the...

    Yeah, it's FFWD. I forgot about those. So that means that the oil filter housing cooler isn't nessecary. Thanks for the reminder. Unhooked it is.

    Oil filter housing cooler

    I am going to switch to an aftermarket cool soon, probably in a week or so. But in the meantime my lines are leaking.They have given me trouble since I got that car. I've put new rubber hoses, better clamps and the tubing is not crushed on the ends. And the clamps are tight. It'll stop for...

    Oil filter housing cooler

    I was wondering if I remove my oil filter cooler lines, how much of a difference will it make? In my opinion it doesn't do much to help with the cooling of the oil, but I guess every little bit helps.

    You can never ever go wrong with a Toyota pickup. I've been building trail rigs rock crawlers and rock buggies for almost 7 years now and a modded Toyota Pickup is the best all around in my opinion. Parts are cheap and plentiful and it's simple yet indestructable.

    96 gsx rear axles

    Ok, heres what I saw on graveyards axle. It is just like yours you either have to buy the differential end or have your old one pressed off and put on the graveyard axle.I didnt torque mine the first time, or the second time after I fried mine after an inproper installation. I just used an...

    96 gsx rear axles

    If when you bought a new hub bearing it didnt come with the flange that holds your wheels studs. Then it was probably an assembly error. When you press the flange into the hub it sometimes seperates the two bearings which in turn causes a very very short bearing life.Maybe something to look...

    I would tackle the task your self. It is very simple. Just make sure you buy new head studs if you dont have arps, andyour arps havent been torqued more than a couple times.If your not sure youll remember where a bolt goes, put it back after you remove the part, if possible. Main thing...
