    2G Alternator Recommendation

    Thanks everyone for all the advice. I understand the skepticism towards reman parts but not all are complete garbage. I wouldn't mind buying a genuine or even the saturn alt but I'm trying to get the most affordable option right now. @pottersgst Thank you for your experience with the WAI alt...

    2G Alternator Recommendation

    DENSO says they do the reman themselves. Here's the link from RockAuto: https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=870658&cc=1205839&jsn=388&jsn=388&jsn=388

    So the 90A ones say they're for the automatic trans. Is there any difference or modifying needed to run a 90A on a MT?

    2G Alternator Recommendation

    Hey guys, I've recently been noticing issues with my alternator and its undercharging. I would get my OEM one rebuilt but don't have the time right now. My car is the 4g64 Spyder for reference. Are there any recommendations for an aftermarket alternator? I was thinking of buying one from NAPA...

    2G 4G64 Power Transistor Issue

    Hello, So I became aware of this issue when my friends practiced learning to drive stick in my car. Basically, if the car stalls enough times or if the gas pedal is floored, the ignition control module pops out. Theres no noticeable issues on the locking mechanism but I guess its just worn out...

    I'd love to see some 2g spyder specific parts also. Welcome to the site :hellyeah:

    2G Please help finding this part!

    I thought of doing that if they weren't sold brand new. Thankfully DogWhistle had the part number. They're cheap for a set of three.

    2G Please help finding this part!

    Hi! This part belongs to a 2g Spyder. My rear quarter glass had issues going up and down and eventually failed. This nylon insert rides along the track and allows the pivot arm to raise and lower. Does anyone know the part number? Thank you in advance!

    Yeah I plan on running stock internals with low boost. Any build sheet that’s been done would help me a lot.

    2G Turbocharging a 4G64

    Hey all! I think I'm ready to start planning to turbocharge the 4g64. Is there any available parts list or guide to follow the process. I don't mind sticking with the stock head or swapping to the DOHC head. The reason for this post is to have a checklist of the parts I'll need in order to...

    2G Is this rust repairable?

    Before you decide if you'll repair the rust or not, do yourself the favor of meticulously checking the car over. Whenever you find rust, there is always more rust hidden somewhere else. The rust you have is fairly common and I think it's repairable. I have a hole in my trunk and a small rust...

    2G 2g koni yellow and eibach question.

    I don't know if it'd matter but I didn't trim mine for KONI oranges and eibach springs even though it was suggested. The car ride still feels normal even on NYC's horrible streets.

    Street '96 Spyder

    Yeah you hit it right on the nail! You have no idea how bad the wind noise is especially on the freeway :banghead:! I'll PM you when I get down to pulling the whole top at a junkyard by my area. Thanks again for the help.

    Street '96 Spyder

    No I bought the car unseen from an auction like this. I've always wondered what in the world could cause that :idontknow:. It doesn't seal right and makes so much noise when driving so its next on my fix list. Thanks for the help, really appreciate it.

    Street '96 Spyder

    I've been following your build religiously and its become a goal of mine to sort of follow along your path. My issue is that I'm trying to avoid taking the entire top off and dealing with that headache. Is it possible to replace the frame arms without taking everything off or do I have to do the...

    Street '96 Spyder

    The old vs. new stereo receiver. Found some old rock CDs in there OMG. The old unit had an issue where higher volumes resulted in it shutting off. Think it was the wiring but I crimped the new harness to an old adapter that was in place. Happy with the result!

    Street '96 Spyder

    Haven't updated the build in a while; That all changes now. The car mainly gets worked on in the warm months since I do everything with my dad on the sidewalk. Hoping to start documenting and photographing everything I do for now. I've made a lot of mistakes but learned along the way. So far...

    You can just try KONI struts on stock springs?

    2G Is it time for coilovers?

    https://stmtuned.com/collections/1g-2g-dsm-eclipse-talon-laser-4g63-lowering-springs TEIN springs drop less than an inch. They seem to mostly be for the FWD application only though.

    2G Is it time for coilovers?

    You can try either adjustable coilovers or a cheaper solution might be a stiffer spring.

    2G Vibrant Muffler Sound?

    Yeah I got you man! My car came with an obnoxiously loud ebay can with a hole in it and broken silencer. Driving anywhere or on the highway is awful. I'm sure the vibrant muffler will be an amazing step forward. I have to go measure the inlet pipe and then ill be ordering. Thanks!

    Sounds balanced. I'm definitely buying this. Thanks!

    2G OEM strut/shock cup

    Yup, same issue I had using the OEM cup. Your old cup is probably aftermarket so should have a better fit with all the KYB parts like you figured out.

    2G OEM strut/shock cup

    The new cup you ordered is the same as my original one. I reused the cup and mount on KONI STR.T Struts with Eibach Springs. I ordered the same KYB bellow and bumper you have. Those were giving me issues so I just reused the OEM ones. You might be able to run the KYB stuff with no issue but I...

    2G Please help with clutch pedal

    Jack's Transmissions video wasn't the clearest nor loudest video to follow honestly. The video you sent me went above and beyond what I expected of an explanation. I initially messed around with the pedal travel height before adjusting the master rod and think that might also be messing things...

    2G Please help with clutch pedal

    By the second bracket, do you mean the OEM one with the rubber insert? The bracket that came with the master lacked that so I assumed it was wrong. The rod on exedy ended up actually being longer than OEM. I cut it to match the length of the old unit. I see your point about NOT using the old...

    Thank you all for the amazing help and information. I'll try all your suggestions. I don't know if this is relevant but I installed the master with the old connector to the pedal.

    2G Please help with clutch pedal

    Hey guys, so I bought the car last year and hadn't realized the clutch master cylinder was leaking until it left me stranded recently (Thankfully near my house). I replaced it with the Exedy MC188 master and bled the system. The car would catch low with the old master which felt good. The issue...

    2G Patching Rust Holes

    I'm trying to finish my 2g with cost effective methods but won't mind paying a welder to do the job right. My concern is if a satisfactory repair would be to use a bondo patch and lay fiberglass resin over it to fill the hole and then painting (After completely removing all rust). I'm trying to...
