    Launch Control Solenoid!!!

    Nope, I had it release too slow and it overheated my clutch to the point that I had lockout issues when trying to shift due to one of the parts being warped I'm sure. And although it was probably my own dumb fault, that was enough for me. I then converted to a triple disk which didn't have...

    2G Vacuum pump and clutch cut

    Appreciate the reply. I'll look things over and see what's what and report back.

    2G Vacuum pump and clutch cut

    I have a relay for my vacuum pump for my auto and relay for clutch cut both wired to the brake switch. But if I try and use them both at the same time, it pops a fuse. Can anyone tell me if this wiring would be correct? Both are connected to the brake switch. I'm terrible at wiring, just going...

    Launch Control Solenoid!!!

    If I were to do it again, I'd make sure it releases too quickly and adjust until it's slower, just to the rate that's needed.

    Launch Control Solenoid!!!

    I ended up getting rid of mine and auto now anyway. Burned up a South Bend clutch trying to get it dialed in because it was releasing too slow. So I'm good without it. $600+ for a clutch to burn up was enough for me. It's a nice thought though.

    Oringed block - headgasket use.

    Y'all know if it matters what material to use with a composite gasket for the oring? I usually run copper with MLS but swapping to felpro composite. Can I keep the copper for the oring or does it need to be swapped to steel? Only the block is o'ringed. Purchased it like this.

    Anyone run Forced Four AND ratchet shifter?

    It's working. Was pretty easy.Red wire- to toggle switch and from toggle switch to blue wire at the harness (Kiggly blue wire mod) Black wire-ground White wire- Rpm signal (I believe that's pin 3 on a 2g but I still have to hook this part up) Yellow wire- Solenoid A at the harness (tied in...

    nitrous users. where did you mount your solenoids?

    I didn't realize my kit was a wet kit (new to this nitrous thing) so I guess the solenoids are inside the square box. However I'm not going to use the fuel in/out side. Just the N20 in/out. Purchased a new single nozzle for the one line to go to versus the dual, even though I could've capped off...

    nitrous users. where did you mount your solenoids?

    This is where I'm mounting mine. Just have to find a couple of screws for the purge solenoid that I'm holding and finish the install of everything.

    ECMlink Can't get auto dsm anti lag to work during launch

    Just wondering but are any of you using that trick with the brake switch AND nitrous? My 76mm turbo will need all the help it can get but don't wanna kill my axles or transmission either.

    2G Relatively easy engine mount solution for 6 bolts

    You would probably have to modify those two mounts or give up on those and swap to Prothane or stock without just forking out the extra cash for a custom mount.

    Sounds like you have an exhaust leak somewhere before the O2 sensor which is throwing off your readings.

    2G Relatively easy engine mount solution for 6 bolts

    So I did the 5 speed to auto swap and learned a LOT along the way. One thing I learned is that if you're using the Kiggly adapter plate to install a transmission in a 2g with a 6 bolt, it put's about 3/4" between the engine and transmission. And it's a HUGE pain trying to get the engine mounts...

    Anyone run Forced Four AND ratchet shifter?

    Just wondering if anyone runs both? Was talking to one of the guys on my Facebook about the Forced Four and the benefits of using it and since I had one laying around that was shipped to me with my transmission, I figured I'd go ahead and throw it in the car. So today I just finished my panel...

    2G DSM Automatic Transmission Tear Down and Assembly Videos

    Yes sir, it's the very last video I made that's referring to that. Someone was watching my videos and pointed it out to me. Thankfully before I burned it up or installed the transmission. No idea why they didn't just use a master spline so it would only go in one way because it's very easy to...

    2G DSM Automatic Transmission Tear Down and Assembly Videos

    The viscous coupler is gone but only because I welded the center diff. If it's a street car you may not want to get the diff locker as it can wear on the gears over time and get metal shavings in the transmission. But I got it with the transmission with all the other goodies that came with it. I...

    For whatever reason, the one you're posting isn't playing for me so I'm not sure which video you're referring to. But I'm unsure if you saw the last video I posted where I "think" I'm addressing what you're referring to. Can you please confirm if that's what you're talking about? Thank you sir!

    2G Which parts control spark to plugs?

    About to be getting on this here shortly. Thanks y'all. Going to assume it's my cas wiring if anything because it got hit by the fire pretty good. I'll be taking a second look.Only thing I've found so far is one cut wire (black) and one burnt wire (yellow which may or may not be good and...

    2G Which parts control spark to plugs?

    So I'm searching but I don't have years for this. Short story, injector was leaking and had a nice little fire that I got out in a hurry. Repaired wires and car would fire up fine of the two times I tried. Third time on another day was a no-go. No spark on 2 and 3. Thought it was ptu so replaced...

    ECMlink afr roller coaster

    Well, the stock regulator doesn't do the best at "regulating". If fuel pressure is all over the place, the tune results will follow. I also wonder if either your grounding of the electrical system is crap, or just a crap voltage regulator. In the first log, the voltage is dropping through the...
  26. v8s_are_slow

    ECMlink afr roller coaster

    I would start with a better regulator before wasting time on a fuel pump. You idc's in the first log were screaming. Not as bad in the 2nd one. A fuel pressure increase and a regulator that controls the pressure might be all you need. I see you smoothed out the mafcomp sliders in the second log...

    2G Wiring for shifter with no TCU

    So by that chart, #2 here would be a positive wire?!?!?!? #6 in the chart is certainly not a red/blue wire that's in that position as per the picture below. Guess I need to figure that out before I burn it to the ground, if polarity is even a concern in that area.

    1G W4a33 line pressure

    Mine is almost done now finally. Curious though but which parts take the abuse with high line pressure? I have the upgraded 2 spring kit with a ratchet shifter. Would be nice to drive on the street from time to time. Real kick in the buttocks on shifts?

    Okay so I think I about have the wiring completed now. My NSS plug is different in that it has different wiring colors and one of the wires were missing, so that part was a nightmare until someone helped me figure all that out. Guy named Bryan Scharch helped me out and sent me this picture. He...

    VW Golf MK3 radiator? Like Scirocco radiator, but longer.

    VW Golf MK3 radiator? Like Scirocco radiator, but longer.

    Doesn't bother me any. That's what these are for.No issues getting it back on after trimming the bumper some due to the intercooler being pushed forward some with the new mount. But I'm also using two 10" pusher fans now and I couldn't fit them there without removing the hood latch, causing me...

    2G Question for the 2g awd E85 users

    Maybe a month or so. I'm going to assume and HOPE maybe it's just the rings because they're pretty old. Just didn't know if this was a common issue or not.

    2G Question for the 2g awd E85 users

    Just wondering if any of you guys that use it have any issues with your fuel looking like this if it sits for a bit. I'm wondering what y'all do for the sealing rings on top of the tank and if they would possibly be an issue, or if it's the seals I'm using for my fuel sumps on bottom of the...

    How to properly mount your 2g Rear Diff

    Just seeing this thread for the first time and love the idea. Seeing guys spend $4k+ on tubular rear subframes, 3000gt rear diff, getting modified rear axles to make it fit, etc. etc. etc. Just to have a "supporting" mod that makes 0 hp increase. I'm just thinking, "There HAS to be a better way...

    How to launch without rolling forward?

    Reading over that again, that still wouldn't make sense because the turbo isn't going to be spooled at say 1k rpm's without hitting the gas. Can't get the converter to stall up to whatever it's for, etc, without hitting the gas. So what am I missing here?
  44. v8s_are_slow

    How to launch without rolling forward?

    Got it. Thanks for the clarification. Imagine loading up on the brakes AND the gas at the same time would put too much stress on the transmission anyway.

    2G Fuel system upgrade with stock fuel tank for high horsepower. Pics inside!

    So I've been trying to work on this auto conversion for over a year now (saving money and sourcing the parts I've needed) and I'm about done. I'll be working on completing this as well at the same time before I fire it back up. I just purchased another fuel pump hanger since I cut the portion...

    How to launch without rolling forward?

    Not sure if I'm the only one that's confused here but you're saying that if the tires spin when letting off the brakes it's probably too much torque. But then right after that you're saying to spin the tires the first few feet. So I totally don't get what you're saying here. Sorry if I'm just...
