So this is something I did about 6 years ago.
Replacing stock fuel pressure regulator with common Aeromotive FPR. Usually it's done with 6AN but I really wanted 8AN for...some reason I don't recall at the moment.
Here we go...
The stock 2G rail ID is 16mm in and out. I chose to use an 8AN to...
Just looking for tips on selling DSM parts.
What are some fast selling items?
Where do you post?
If online selling, how do you calculate shipping and the price?
Thanks for any adive, hope y'all having a good week!
What do you guys do with your registration and insurance?
My car is heavily modified and trying to figure out how getting it registered and insured works, for my benefit if anything were to happen.
FWIW- I got a statefarm quote on a mythical stock 97 GSX and it came out to be 53/month. I'm in...
Just to update how this all went down. Feel free to ask any clarifying questions.
I ended up going with https://www.amerifreight.net/
Excellent company, very thorough communication and good at walking you through the process. Always answered the phone and all questions.
I paid around $1100 to...
Was it a big pain to get the car loaded and unloaded? Or is it pretty straightforward?
Like they come to you, they load it up easy painfree, transport it and deliver it to your custom requested location?
Or is it like a place you have to meet them at both to and from like a uhaul etc.?
Hey guys I need to get my car out of storage in Idaho. I'm in Indiana.
Have you guys any recommendations? Has anyone shipped a car by semi or train?
I'm exploring the shipping possibilities right now :)
My car is running hot with an average temp of 216 via link, just cruising, no boost. It's only 80*f out.
Running out of ideas!
No bubbles in coolant, running 60%water 40% antifreeze
Two 12" pusher spal fans mounted to ac condensor with heavy wiring
FMIC, Condenser, and mishimoto rad are all...
Alright it's solved.
I took the valve cover off to see the lobes position.
I rotated to tdc again with lobes up and all is well. Perfect leakage.
Lesson learned, just take the VC off next time plus it's easier to rotate engine since cam has hex for wrench...
All cylinders are perfect in compression test. All same number.
1,2,and 4 cylinders are perfect on leakdown.
#3 is weird. I plug it tester and goes to zero, complete leakage.
I hear air coming from #1 plug hole (NONE OTHERS). Rotate cam and stops leaking from #1 but still at zero. AFTER a...
Yeah about the thrust bearings.
Hmm, that's a damn shame because I liked that part along with the spherical bearing idea, no resistance to travel etc.
Well Florida would destroy them then, so that is a good point you made. Thanks for mentioning!
Back in 2012 I bought into this group buy:
Well I finally got the car going last month and really can't decide if I actually need this premium setup for just a daily driver or if I should just resell...
I just got my car running. 1g block and head. Kiggly crank sensor, 1g cas, just not using crank signal from the 1g cas.
As suspected, the spark timing is right on and is not effected by the 1g cas being adjusted.
However, if I move the cas, it is still effecting the engine. If I move it too...
So you're referring to Les Schwab as firestone all being franchises aka not good steakhouse?
Yes I've heard of this road force balancing when I was in tech school, and I'd love to have someone knowledgeable like you setting me up. That's what I'm after!
Would any big car dealer work? Or am I...
Thanks for the tips- I will keep in mind to be diligent of the condition before and after service
Call man thanks. I got off the phone with a Les Schwab place and the tech I talked to was more than willing to explain and name the machines used. He even mentioned calibration so I'm pretty happy...
So here's my plan.
Buying some bfgoodrich gforce tires, shipping them. Then I take them + old wheel setup to a shop and paying them to mount the new tires.
Here are my questions-
What should I look for in a quality tire mounting shop. I'm thinking of going to a dealer because at least they...
Thanks for the reply although its not the info I was looking for.
I'm talking simply swapping out the stock pcv valve with another car (like a Honda or some other model with a more robust part but still a direct fit) pcv valve.
Just wondering if anyone has ever tried replacing the stock one with one from another car or something.
The stock one leaks boost into the crankcase even when new.
The us plastics check valve potentially restrics flow rate.
Seems like it would just be easier to find one that doesn't leak...
Actually, I AM looking for more info on these turbos. I've been looking up he451 all day and can't find much.
I've known alot of setups running he351 but having trouble finding 451 or 551.
I'll keep looking but if you have any links feel free to educate if you have them handy.
I find it highly unlikely anyone in my tiny little welfare town of 1k has the ability to strap a HE551 to their 318 or their 12v Dodge.
I intended this deal to attract semi truck owners, guess I should specify next time.
I didn't think kids wishing upon a star would pollute my post with their...
Yes, I will sell it to him if his ego isn't bigger than his intelligence which would waste each other's time when he backs out of the deal at the last minute.
I find it funny these people that act like they can just take any old turbo to their project.
Was hoping to find some collective humor...
So check this out guys. I just listed a couple of massive turbos for sale on Facebook. They're off of Cummins isx engines (semis), with the computer controlled actuator.
Within minutes some college kid building a dodge 12v enquired. Being a college kid he wanted them for free. Pass.
Next I get...
16ft lbs for a 2g turbo. 420a is 7ft lbs. From my 1997 factory service manual. I'll buy a 27mm socket to modify.
Also, the socket size is 27mm for a 2G turbo confirmed just today on a new sensor. The sensor PN for a 2g turbo is MD300670. 1G turbo is MD141510.
27mm or 1-1/16". The latter being...
Lmao some very dizzy mice. I never checked to see if my recirc door is open or closed. Hopefully I dont have that issue. Everything smells fine inside though. Damn that would make me scream like a little girl if I was driving and a mouse came out to make it's presence known.
IDK Curt, if my car...
Like big xl under armor sweaters and a huge pleather jacket and some other things. All brand new or worn once except for the pleater jacket.
What do you know about property liquidation?
That sounds attractive to me. Get rid of all my stuff in one shot, no tedious individual listings and...
Hey guys! How was your forth of July?
Mine was cool, I sat by the railroad tracks which ran along the lakeside and watched works go off over the lake. Spectacular!
Onto the question-
I've accumulated a small room full of things that I don't need or want. Like fish tanks, old electronics, nice...
Pulled the downpipe to replace the flex pipe and boom, nest all up in my turbo. Only way there is through the exhaust... So I looked through the rest of the exahsut and yep sure enough cat is hollowed out.
Pulled the O2 to make sure I got it all out which was a successful endeavor.
My 2G GSX has been sitting in a garage for 5 years. Temps from -20f to 90f.
About half a tank full of fuel.
My plan is to simply disconnect the HP line running to the fuel rail, power up the fuel pump and empty the line into a gas can.
Then I'd change the fuel filter and add fresh gas...
The fuel filter bolt I'm talking about is actually a 6mm. That picture doesn't show the other side where the clamp ends meet, cinched down with a 6mm bolt.
And the channel, do you know what part number?
The pictures are just absolutely refusing to post.
