    4g64 engines in generac generators

    That's crazy! Are they wide blocks or narrow block 4g64? I would assume the crank would work. Can you find any service documentation or anything?

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    Just a little update, I finally popped the head off last night, and the timing belt was NOT the cause of the failure. A rocker got loose and wedged itself between the head and the exhaust cam, locking the cam in place, which then shredded the timing belt.I have a video on my instagram...

    Hx35 6.7 Cummins turbo

    It's a killer turbo, stick with the twin scroll, you'll love it. I just made 460HP with my hx35 on a bone stock motor. Walbro 450, 1000cc injectors. I did like 4 install videos that will give you a general idea of a few of the things involved. Just search "Hx35 dsm turbo upgrade" on youtube.

    Do you have access to e85? That will help get a cleaner burn as well.

    Fp exhaust manifold coatings

    VHT is awesome stuff. I painted my manifold like 6 or 7 years ago, still holding up. Just clean it up and rattlecan it. Be sure to follow the baking instructions.

    Garage renovation

    Paint EVERYTHING white. I'm even going to paint my floor white. And yeah, put as many lights in as you can, I have 8, looking to add more 😁This!!!! Keeping everything white makes a giant difference in light as well.

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    When I did the timing belt on my 1G Eclipse I found the same thing, the balance shaft belt had broke and been wadded up for a long time, but never hurt anything.I've never had the oil pan off my Talon. I'll definitely check that out when I tear into though.

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    That's not part of what's on the inside of the timing belt? I assumed it was akin to the steel belts from steel belted radial tires.

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    Which part shouldn't be there, 1 2 or 3? or something esle? I thought those were all just parts of a mangled timing belt.

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    Thanks! I'll give 'em a call. My car is a 97, just to be sure, I need a 97+ head if I don't want to change any wiring, right?Are you talking about the thin strip that's left? You think it was rubbing on something and that's why it split? Or are you looking at something else?I haven't...

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    Oh it's even worse than that. I even had the timing belt off to replace the cam sensor, and I was like, meh, it'll be good for another year. Slap it back on!I was dead wrong loI

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    It'll need a new head for sure. I'm gonna do it myself. New head, new head gasket, arp head studs, oem timing belt kit, water pump, etc.I'll probably be getting a head from Rix Racing, but I found I can also get one from Autozone for like $600 bucks...

    2G snapped the ole' timing belt : P

    300HP is pretty easy to make on stock components. Composite head gasket will be fine. I'm on a composite on my 1g with ARP head studs and making 460HP at the wheels :thumb:

    A real shootout at the dragstrip

    I feel bad for the guy that died. This is a stark reminder to immediately move away from conflict. Even verbal conflict. Don't try get a closer look, don't pull out your phone, don't try even try to help. Leave immediately. Things can escalate faster than you can react.

    Bosch 1680cc (160lb) Injectors

    Got them cleaned and flow tested, 3 of them flowed 149 lbs per minute (1564cc) and the other one is at 152 (1596cc).I'm not too worried about the 30cc difference (should I be?) so I'm going to pop them in the car and rock them.

    Bosch 1680cc (160lb) Injectors

    You sure about that? I'm almost certain the metal part on the inside is just as long. A shorter cap would just fail to cover the entire metal part then. I'll take a cap off and take a pic later, I need to replace the caps anyway.And after thinking about it for a bit I'm guessing the longer...

    Bosch 1680cc (160lb) Injectors

    Can I run these injectors? They're Bosch 280150837 . The reason I ask is they are a bit longer than stock. I got them on the classifieds here like 3 or 4 years ago.Thanks!

    2G Megan coilovers rear is bouncy

    Yeah, what are the spring rates for the 2g FWD megan [email protected] I ask because the spring rates on my 1g AWD Megan coilovers were 12k/10k, (675lb/560lb) which is INSANELY stiff. Undriveable on the street IMO. Like shaking your tits off uncomfortable, even on the softest damper...

    4G63 in a 1997 Saturn (what axles?)

    While have the spare engine, I have nothing else.So I'm currently on the lookout for a rusted out or wrecked, but running, 1g FWD. That way I have basically everything I need, engine, trans, ecu, shifter, etc. If I find one for the right price, it's game on. :D

    4G63 in a 1997 Saturn (what axles?)

    Yep, mine has about 300k on it. ^_^ A couple days ago it's not starting though, sounds like just whirring. It's probably just the starter, but my imagination was having fun with the idea of a 4g63 in it. :D

    DISCLAIMER: bench racing threadI have a spare engine from a 1991 TSi that I'm tempted to do a silly engine swap with (FWD). Obviously I'll need custom engine mounts, custom plumbing, etc.But what axles would I need?I assume they need to be custom made, one end to fit the DSM trans and...

    Probably need new flywheel, recommendations?

    ACT Streetlight. I picked up a used one in the classifieds here for like $100. I absolutely love it. Revs awesome and not too light for daily driving and stop and go traffic.BTW I bought it for the same reason as you, my OEM flywheel was far beyond resurfacing.

    Decent wash/wax for initial cleaning of long-neglected car?

    Any of those products are good, it's all just soap. Can't go wrong with turtle wax with carnauba either.I prefer to start with dish soap if the car has been sitting a long time. It cuts through built up and dirt fast and will strip all the old wax off the car, leaving a clean slate for new wax.

    2G 2G Manual Trans Dummy Plugs

    Pretty sure there isn't. I'm also pretty sure your manual transmission fluid isn't going to drastically change temp whether you're cruising or doing pulls. There's not much generating heat, unlike an automatic transmission.
