    2g DSM Engine Bay Electrical Connections

    See the post right above yours. It goes to the capacitor/noise condenser. It's a small, silver cylinder that's usually bolted to the intake manifold.

    2G First time road course

    Depending on what organization, novices usually don't have much downtime. They go from class to track to car control and repeat. Here's a sample schedule from a group I run with frequently that you can check out the first time/novice schedule...

    2G First time road course

    You should go into your first experience with eyes open, ears open, and the full intent to learn. You can read all about driving on a track, play video games, etc. but I don't think much will prepare you for the information overload you're going to experience. Learning the racing line...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    I'd sell the car before going RWD. That's way too much work for a cheap FWD road race car that I can't easily get most parts for.

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    In talking with @twicks69 it may or may not be. He sounded fairly confident in the diagnosis as apparently they're the weak links in the transmission, but it's also going to be interesting to find out what else was taken out in the process. I was flat towed back to the pits so I'm sure that...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    It's really not that bad to do. I've had one along with the appropriate 1g column adapter sitting in a box for the better part of a decade. The main issue is that no one that I'm aware of has tested the airbag compatibility as most of them have the airbag removed (illegal to ship from what I...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    If there was an easy way to get a smaller wheel in these cars without having to go down the remove airbags/install cage and harnesses path, we would've done it already! They are huge and cause issues with our knees hitting them with how close we have to sit and how the higher side bolsters...

    RIP Curt Brown

    I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a post by Samantha of @MorrisonFab that Curt Brown had passed away today from a hit and run while on his bicycle. I was not close with him and probably only spoke with him once or twice but he was a legend in the DSM community. It's always sad...

    My fuse box relocation (project log)

    Not giving me credit AND a broken link? Sheesh. :rolleyes: ROFL (I fixed it for you.) No worries, Corey. This project has taken way too long for sure. The solution is probably about as elegant and simple as we could have made it while still having the most solid tow point possible.

    2G Rebuilding throttle body

    A few comments: Just because there were no hoses running to the FIAV nipples does not mean the previous owner properly blocked off the FIAV. You need to check and see if there's a plate between the throttle body and the FIAV and ideally what type of plate (bypass or blockoff). You'll be able...

    Throttle Body Rebuild Kit

    Sorry, I do not. The '90 throttle bodies used very different hardware setups and I hardly have anyone ask about them so I didn't feel it was worth it to build a kit.

    ECMlink Adjust Your TPS!

    When I set up 1g throttle bodies, while there is a spec for how to set the idle switch/throttle body stop (@steve has posted about it before), I only adjust it to make sure the throttle body doesn't stick. I set it in place, lock it down, and then open the throttle body by hand and let it slam...

    2G Carbonetics AB Hood (Pictures)

    I had a similar situation when ordering hoods from him. It all boils down to whether you want the part or want good customer service. I was quoted 18-20 weeks for two hoods and it ended up taking almost double that. But I wanted those hoods and did not have a timeline I was trying to meet...

    Calan Catch Cans

    Last I checked with him a few months ago, nothing has changed. He's busy with life and other things. He mentioned he hopes to get back into it in the near future but didn't have a definitive time frame on that. Look for or post a WTB ad for a used one is my best suggestion (what I ended up...

    2G GST Megan Racing catback exhaust installation issues

    I had to take it to a shop with a lift and loosen up all connection points. While we were able to get the muffler section in and mostly bolted up (with a lot of struggling), it was all up in my bumper. We loosened up the other two connection points and removed all of the hanger bolts and it...

    For Sale Innovate LC-1 wideband oxygen sensor

    Used Innovate LC-1 wideband oxygen sensor. This was pulled in working condition from my car because I decided to run a different sensor. This comes with everything needed to install and log, but no gauge for display. Also comes with a second sensor that is in unknown condition. This part is sold...

    2G GST Megan Racing catback exhaust installation issues

    I'm replacing my old rusted out exhaust with a Megan Racing unit. I noticed that the exhaust hangers are off by 90* and have threaded holes in them. Should I be running bolts through the rubber hangers off the body and into the threaded holes? Or should I be rotating the rubber hangers 90*...

    2G Carbonetics AB Hood (Pictures)

    Keywords there are "supposed to". I just needed confirmation :) Perfect - exactly what I was hoping to hear!

    2G Carbonetics AB Hood (Pictures)

    @rival Thanks for the pictures! Just to confirm, do you have an upper timing belt cover/cam gear cover on? I run a clear cover and need to make sure this clears as I do not want to hack up the hood.

    2G Carbonetics AB Hood (Pictures)

    How about @rival - have you received and installed your hood yet?
  36. snowborder714

    I haven't given it any thought honestly. I haven't had anyone else contact me about it recently.

    2G Carbonetics AB Hood (Pictures)

    Odd that @rival's hood looks like it's got a lot more of a bubble in the middle than @slowwhite's. This is just from comparing side edges to the surface below it and seeing that the gap in post #160 looks a lot larger than the gap in post #151. Really interested to hear how they both fit...
