    Aw4g63, landoawd where you at. All members from the early 2000's check in.

    Funny how a username and password can stick in the back of your mind for 19 years...

    Installing coilovers, what else to replace?

    Might as well check out the Ball Joints and Tie Rod Ends while you have a good view with everything open.

    Oil pan problem

    There may not be any leaking but if it is dented enough it may cause a little more restriction on the oil pick-up. Mine had been dented a small amount and once I pulled it I found scuff marks that matched where the screen of the pick-up tube had been in contact.

    Preseason updates? Show us what you're doing!

    While you are in there doing pads and rotors, clean and grease the guide pins in the calipers and flush out ALL of that old brake fluid too. You could also throw on a set of speed bleeders to make things really easy.

    Replacing Clutch Slave Cylinder

    I did tear the hell out of my knuckles under the dash, lol. Like I said I think I got lucky.

    Replacing Clutch Slave Cylinder

    Hmm, Mine only took about 25 minutes to swap out. Guess I got lucky. It would suck to just replace the slave and spend your time bleeding the system and then having to go back again in a month to do the Master and re-bleed the system again. Just go ahead and take care of the whole hydraulic...

    2007 1G Car Prep

    Wow! Looks like you have been busy, haha. I enjoy reading threads like this because I am still in the planning process to make my 1G into an aggressive SM set-up. Being able to read other members first hand experience is pretty valuable and it helps me catch the little things I would normally...

    Were can I get a bigger throttle body elbow?

    Look for a 2G elbow, they are slightly larger then the stock 1G.

    Replacing Clutch Slave Cylinder

    I would say do the Master Cylinder as well. If the Slave went bad the Master is probably not far behind. Check out all of your hoses for wear.

    Tire discussion and choices [Merged 11-7] which size what tires tiretire

    I use Kumho ASX's for DD and I do not have a single complaint. Great reviews and awesome tread wear. I would definitely go with an All-Season tire though, they will last you longer and will still get traction in the snow.

    Did you bed them in the rotors? It could be they are just new and not set in yet.

    Skreetching brakes!! after new pads, too...

    Which Hawk pads did you put on the car? HPS pads are tolerable but the HP+ pads will chew through rotors and are a bit noisy when cold.

    Whats the BEST ebay FMIC kit??

    I too have the kit LAN- is selling. I am just waiting for a little warmer weather to install. Great quality and it shipped out pretty quick. I can't wait to finish the car up.

    Whats the BEST ebay FMIC kit??

    There is a member selling 1G short route kits on here. I received mine last week and I was impressed with the kit. Let me know if you want some info on them.

    Relocating Alternator second and third product down. I have no experience with these kits but I did run across them the other day. Hope it helps you out.

    Megan Racing Downpipe or Ebay Knock Off?

    It was about the same. I want to say 160-170 shipped but I know it is a Megan racing DP and not a knock off.

    Preseason updates? Show us what you're doing!

    I was reading here about people using a splitter. I do not know much in the way of track events beyond auto-x but I hope to change that in the near future. At what speed would a splitter become effective. I don't think it has much ,if any, effect at auto-x in a car as heavy as mine and I am...

    Preseason updates? Show us what you're doing!

    Well I used them driving on the street every great once in a while and they would squeal a bit until I laid into them but on course, I have never had them fade or make any noises that I am aware of. I usually drag my brakes a bit going from grid to the start line to get a little bit of heat in...

    Preseason updates? Show us what you're doing!

    I was impressed by the Miata when I saw what 102hp could do in auto-x. I had the same idea and used metal bar stock to make a battery tie down. I used a long bolt for the side closest to the motor and used the strut bolt for the other side. Worked like a charm and no movement at all. And for...

    New rebuild. Should I remove balance shafts?

    You can remove the rear and leave the front shaft in but you might as well pull them both while you are in there. It is a tight fit and a PITA with the motor in the car but you can remove both but no matter what you do, don't just cut the belt.

    Preseason updates? Show us what you're doing!

    I wish I had a budget to be able to travel around, haha. We have two very local auto-x clubs here and a third not too far away. I could pull 2 events per month and stay in state but it is hard when you co-drive someones car :(. All the more reason to work on the Talon :thumb:

    1Ga front bumper options

    It may be a bit extreme and I am not sure what type of racing you do but with the second cover pictured you could modify the side vents into brake cooling ducts and at least put them to some kind of use.

    Preseason updates? Show us what you're doing!

    Well I am not much into the road race portion of it all yet but I stick to auto-x. To be honest it was not until I began reading all of the latest information and somewhat bio of Greg Collier that I made my decision to turn the Talon into a nice SM setup. I have run a few events in the Talon...

    If you want the Megan, go through someone besides Ebay. I went with SBR and got it cheaper than on Ebay.

    1G Laptop Stand????

    I was working on one with a friend that would bolt to the back of the seat bracket and fold out with the seat still in the car. My turbo blew so I kind of scrapped the idea for the time being. If we ever get around to finishing up with it I will be sure to post it as a write-up or something.

    ebay exhaust systems?

    The Megan DP's are awesome. They bolt right up, no clearance issues, and great quality. If you don't care about it being shiny under the car, buy a DP for about $130, a high flow cat if you want one, and take the car to a local exhaust shop for the cat back. I paid $125 for a cat back and was...

    eBay DP question

    Megan pipes do not replace the cat. I have the 1G AWD 3" DP and it does not neck down at the end like the one listed. Maybe that is just the 2G FWD thing, I am not sure.

    1g ebay IC, Pictures inside

    I hear you on keeping your name clean. It is good to see you stop to think about that. You could do upper and lower IC pipes for people who want to keep a stock side mount too. Throttle body elbows, j-pipes... It could take a while to make sure you have a good design but keep at it and I am...

    eBay DP question

    x2 The Megan DP is a nice quality piece and will bolt right on with no clearance issues to worry about. The Megan does NOT replace the cat BTW.

    ebay exhaust systems?

    Those links don't look too bad or overpriced for a catback. I paid 120 for a 3in cat back + universal muffler out of ugly pipe for mine and spent another 120 on a Megan 3in DP. To me a 3in pipe is a 3in pipe as long as the welds are good.
