    Question by 'AZDSM' on classified ad '!!!ROUND 2!!! 2G Adjustable tubular Rear upper suspension arm / wishbones, With R/C adjustment. (CLOSED)!!!!!'

    Never been a fan of heim rod ends where polys would normally go, but these uppers are so damn nice and way more adjustable than an engalls camber kit I don't think I can pass it up, lol.

    Warning: Aftermarket oil pan paint

    Is that the proper amount of RTV to use for the oil pan? Seems excessive.

    2G Rear diff grinding, drain/fill plugs wet?

    Everything else looks dry. Just the plugs look wet.If it really is just water, why does it have obvious orange substance in it? I know it wasn't there before I pulled the car out.If it is the brakes, why does it make a louder grind in reverse?I drove the car to turn around in the...

    2G Rear diff grinding, drain/fill plugs wet?

    I replaced my trans/t-case/rear diff fluids all around the same time in July last year. Filled the rear diff with Redline 75W90. Used new copper gaskets on the fill/drain plugs.Que to last night, I had just fixed my rad fan issue and pulled the car out to cruise it around the block since it...

    2G Running very lean, high idle & not building boost

    I'll check it out.After doing some reading, I read it is best to use 6's for mostly stock/under 15 psi and 7's for higher HP applications. So I've opted to get 6's tomorrow to replace my 7's. In the mean time, I pulled the 7's and this is what they look like. Mind you, the car pretty much sits...

    2G Running very lean, high idle & not building boost

    I would agree with this, but I also can't figure out why there is so much... condensation? Or something that spits out the exhaust pipe. It used to be black like soot, but that was when I first got it running after a year of sitting. Now it is just clear. Doesn't smell like anything. But it...

    Didn't realize this topic was so old now, but I do have a few updates. (still not building boost)- TB shaft seal was leaking. Took me a while to get that all fixed since the screws were a pita. But shaft seals are replaced. - Took the liberty of removing the EGR and installed a block off...

    2G Running very lean, high idle & not building boost

    Thanks for the response. A few things you mentioned I wanted to clarify on.Both throttle body gaskets are new and replaced. No leaks(had one at TB elbow/TB gasket before). BISS screw is new as is the o-ring inside of it. It no longer leaks. ISC o-ring was present and in good condition.Is...

    2G Running very lean, high idle & not building boost

    So when I first bought this car last year around May, it drove home fine. Built boost and pulled hard. I pretty much tore it down from there as I saw a lot of crap I wanted to replace I wasn't ok with. Compression test last July came back good. It's a 2.3 stroker, but numbers were 160 across the...

    2G catch can, dipstick, pcv questions

    Just to throw my 2 cents out here... I had issues with valve cover leaking from the bolts, etc yesterday with a closed catch can with 2 lines running from the valve cover(-10AN). I presumed this to be the culprit so today I modified the can with an OEM PCV valve and ran a 3rd line back to the...

    2G Fired up the TSi yesterday for the first time in a year... now I have a few questions

    So question... is it possible for crankcase pressure to be the sole culprit of a leaky valve cover and possibly oil pan?(may or may not be the problem) When I first fired it up yesterday I had a bad issue with oil leaking from a few spots where bolts were not tightened down all the way(threads...

    Oil Pan leaking after numerous attempts

    I just fired up my Talon last night for the first time in a year and oil leaks are the plague of me right now. My pan is leaking pretty badly and I'm pretty sure it is because I didn't use enough grey stuff when I ran the bead on the inside. Annoys the hell out of me since I have to drop the...

    HID Retro Number 3 (2Ga Headlights)

    Great topic with excellent step by step info. Thanks for the link on The Retrofit Source.

    Inside of valve cover slightly powder coated

    So at the suggestion of greengoblin I used Simple Green Extreme to coat the inside of the VC. Let it pool inside the baffles and sat for about 5-10 mins. The hope was to see what would come out when I dumped it all out. Here's the result...Now I'm no expert or anything, but I do believe what I...

    Inside of valve cover slightly powder coated

    Someone suggested to me that I remove the baffles and find evidence of beading/sand and try and have them fix it, but I don't see anything being resolved from that. I'd much rather put it in the hands of someone professionally trained from this community to do it right (which I regret not doing...

    Inside of valve cover slightly powder coated

    I feel like such an idiot for never really noticing this when I had this work done several months ago. I'm sure I saw it, but it just didn't click with me. Probably too excited over how cool it looked. The place specializes in automotive parts, but yeah. Obviously little to no masking was done...

    Sunroof weatherstripping too short?

    So after getting the sunroof fixed and getting parts to finish it up, I test fit the weatherstripping... low and behold it doesn't appear to fit.This is off another 2G Eclipse that I essentially got for free from buying other parts. The original weatherstripping was glued shut because...

    Sunroof cable question

    Which / What Oil Should I Use? [Merged]

    Been looking over this topic and some sites for an idea on what oils to get, etc. But the weight is what I'm unsure of. I live in TN and have a 96 GSX with a 2.3 Stroker. 10w-30? 10w-40? Just looking for advice. Thanks.

    Timing Belt Cover for 6-bolt?

    Alright, sounds good. On another note I'm just going to start googling for threads on dsmtuners. I get completely different results that get me answers way faster.

    Question about exhaust and resonator.

    Ditto on 2.5" exhaust. Also, if you want to reduce the tone the exhaust makes have them weld a resonator somewhere in there if the new one you buy doesn't come with one. It made a huge difference on mine.

    Timing Belt Cover for 6-bolt?

    This has been throwing me off as they have differences, but the only noticable one I can see is the hole for the side motor mount. I have a 6-bolt bottom end with a 2g head, but the 2g cover(2nd link) LOOKS like the correct one based on visually comparing it with my engine.STM: OEM...

    Where to buy 2g Sunroof Weatherstripping 2010

    I nabbed weatherstripping off a parted out GST the other day from a CL ad. The guy threw it in since I bought so much other stuff. I don't think he knew the crap goes for $70 new.

    8 years later, finally got my AWD

    Ah yeah, after googling that it does look like vr-speed fmic. I guess I didn't save much buying it used then, but the rest of the stuff was a score. I had to take that sunroof weatherstripping seeing as it's over $70 new from like one or two websites.

    Cheapest place to buy OEM timing belt kit?

    Thanks for the info and part numbers. But I have to ask, is this all for a 96 or a 6-bolt? I rummaged through a few older topics on here about this in particular and from what I gather a 6-bolt has different everything except for the actual belt itself. According to the extremepsi site that...
