    1G 5 speed - Sick of 9's...

    The fiberglass is just a sheath there, and you're going to contour sand the edge in prior to paint, right? I was considering doing something similar on mine, but I think it might violate DOT rules for side markers on my car. Still, that is going to reduce a little drag and the flow should be...

    dsm with a talon spoiler relocated look

    EXACTLY!!! The body line is no different, but the 2gb GSX hoop is goofy and should have been thrown in the drafters trash can long before it went to production. Anyone driving around with one on their car can't say a damn thing about anyone else being "rice" while sporting a 2gb wing. As soon...

    Billet compressor wheels

    I know for a fact that many of the reported inducer gains is height, not width. If this is the case, a larger reported inducer may actually be the same size, but "extrapolated" out to be a larger size... Extended tip doesn't mean larger inducer, even if it means larger consumption. Turbo...

    Questions for Justin...

    That is a T3 77 Trim wheel. Coupled with a 35r, it is a high rpm street/normal drag turbo on a 4g63.

    dsm with a talon spoiler relocated look

    That's all easily fixable with a little fiberglass, a lot of sanding, and a little paint. Not sure I would go through the trouble of doing so myself, but it wouldn't be hard.

    dsm with a talon spoiler relocated look

    I'm not against having a wing, but there are so many DSM's with big, goofy wings on them that a low profile or wingless drop point back on the rear makes it look a bit more subtle, and more unique to people who know what they are looking at. That said, I have been contemplating putting an Evo...

    Most embarrassing DSM moment?

    I hope you kicked him in the balls. Seriously. That sort of asshattery really makes him a candidate to be filmed for YouTube being beaten senseless with a wet sock full of dogshit while wearing a sign that says "Stoopid" (yes, spelled wrong). You just don't do that to other people's car. That's...

    1G If Cam angle sensor is bad will I get a spark?

    I discovered something rather annoying that may be helpful with this. I'm not sure, but it smoothed out a slightly rough idle for me. I have a green top, and there is a seal on it for the shaft... These seals are 20 years old, hard, crusty, and cracked... The oil in the head splashes on the CAS...

    2g 4g63t not sure of what kind of noise

    Yes. It wouldn't run well, if at all, and the compression would be low.

    Reminds me of a late model WS6 Trans Am spoiler... I like it just for being different. :thumb: Same old stock looks are boring, regardless of what the "stock is best" guys think.

    Most embarrassing DSM moment?

    Yea... I know someone who found that out the hard way. It's pretty strange to be able to hear the fluid at the diff boiling standing beside the car. Needless to say, it was completely destroyed.

    Open Downpipe- Who does it?

    In some states, like here in New Mexico, a turbo is considered a muffling device. They do actually break up the sound waves some and disapate some of the exhaust pulse pressure, so technically that is a muffler. LOL

    2g 4g63t not sure of what kind of noise

    Just pull it and get it on a stand before jumping straight to buying a new motor... 7 bolt motors are pretty damn tough to break beyond repair. A brand new crank and bearings is $300 if they are messed up, rods are easy to find in the classifieds, if the bores are ruined you can bore it and get...

    Car bucking/stuttering when headlights are turned on?

    Well, if the headlights tripped it into doing it steady, it's load related. The more load on the system, the harder it is to make the alternator spin. New belt could be skipping along on the pulley, but the battery should buffer that if it were the only problem. Sounds like a combination of...

    What do you think you will go to when the 4g63 is a dead platform? (think past Evo)

    I was sitting in my car today, wondering what would hold my interest after this. I believe battery tech will have advanced well beyond Li ion banks weighing a thousand pounds that only provide marginal range. Carbon nanostructure is opening up some amazing possibilities in energy storage... I...

    Clutch for DD 20g setup?

    ROFL Yup, they can be harsh. Sprung 6 pucks have a bad tendency to chatter with engine braking too. My wife is exactly the same... She refuses to drive it and doesn't like riding in it very much either. I have become pretty good at making it drive smoothly, but it doesn't forgive you at all...

    Weapons owners Check-in [Merged 10-6]

    The .338 Lapua and the .338 Remington Ultra Mag are virtually identical ballistically. Everyone wants the Lapua because AI sniper rifles have been so widely accepted for extreme long range performance by military snipers, but really it's only a tiny bit different than the Remington. If you have...

    Questions for Justin...

    You theoretically wouldn't have to goof around with making the VGT work without ECU control... But you can get an HE351 with VGT for dirt cheap, usually because the electronic controls failed, and rig it up to a wastegate actuator for a fairly effective VGT for less than $750... At $2400, those...

    Clutch for DD 20g setup?

    I run a 2200 lb pressure plate and a sprung 6 puck. It has held around 400hp...pulling after launch. During the start of the launch, it slips. If you're running 400 on a DD, you'll want a heavier pressure plate than 2200 lbs, for sure.

    14b on open down-pipe

    Just have a cut out pipe and flange welded on. you can unbolt the plate and be as noisy as you want if it won't be a problem, then bolt it shut again to be civil... that's what I did. On the track, it's open and loud as hell, but on the street my car is pretty well mannered. Easiest way to have...

    How does this o2 housing look?

    If you have a welder or know someone who does, don't worry about it. If the welds are shit, fix them. No big deal on an O2 pipe. If he bolt holes are off though, that can be a real pain in the ass. You can slot the holes and risk it leaking or moving, weld them shut and re-drill them, or send...

    Why the hell do people say they have "stage X" parts?? That doesn't tell you anything about anything, and it make the person who said it sound really stupid. "All stage 2 parts..." Wow, I bet that faded POS totally runs 10's, at least... Yea right. :rolleyes:

    Killer Karaoke sounds stupid as hell, and it is, but it is much funnier show than I expected. Steve-O isn't a smooth host like Joe Rogan or anything, but it seems to fit him because the whole damn show is awkward... If you were a fan of Jackass, Steve looks a lot different. He doesn't look like...
