    Are you suffering a loss? Ask your doctor about Eclipse.

    I found this video posted by /DRIVE on YouTube and knew I had to share. I died when he said one of the side effects was unsafe manifold pressure. https://m.youtube.com/?#/watch?v=2NkdwTwBp4Y

    I just reringed my pistons and gapped them correctly. The 2 oil rail scrapers seemed like they would never compress close to the piston. All of the bags that had the ring sets in them say 3.346 so I know I ordered the right ones anyways. I put the first one and it went in tight and it is really...

    Just bought a 97 GSX M/T and need to know where the transmission mounts are located. The guy I bought it off of said the front transmission mount was bad.
