    Side molding questions???

    Yes, those are exactly the side moldings I'm talking about. I want to place the 92-94 moldings (like the ones in the white car or the purple car) in my 91 Talon (like the one in the first pic, the black/grey car). What I wanted to know is if there would be any fitment issues in doing this.??????

    Thanx man, I thought they would fit, just wanted to make sure before buying the new moldings.

    Side molding questions???

    I need to replace the door and fender side moldings on my 91 Talon TSi AWD. The moldings are all cracked and warped from age and eventhough they were repaired a while back, this time they have to go. The problem is that there are no Talon moldings availiable for the 90-91 models. I got hold of...

    Fixed Headlights on 90-91 1G

    I'm planning on changing the pop-up headlights on my 91 Talon. I want to go for a fixed setup but DON'T want to use 92-94 headlights. Besides, the plastic turnsignals on the 1G cars always tend to leak water and trun yellowish. Has anybody done this kind of mod before??? If so please post some...

    Suspension Upgrade 1G

    I had a KYB AGX/Tein S-Tech combo on my car for around 3 years and the result was good enough. Koni's may be a better shock but as stated above they are no a bolt-on proposition so that is already a drawback. I have a Megan Racing coilover setup now and it is way better than the AGX/Tein...

    1G Talon S13 Headlight Conversion

    Finally finished the headlight swap on my 1G. Threw away the pop ups (those things are like candles) and converted to a set of JDM Sylvia S13 headlights. Feel free to throw in your comments. Thanx

    Question on drivers door molding.

    X2 on that!!!MachV.com still has some in stock for the passenger side, in case anyone is looking for those.

    Question on drivers door molding.

    I know for sure that the non-gsx molding is thinner than the gsx molding. I thought though that the gsx molding was the same as the one on the tsi-awd. I'll give them a call monday as my drivers side door and fender moldings are cracking from age and I would really like to get a new set.

    Welding the popups to the hood

    Unfortunately I don't. I didn't take pictures during the conversion process, I regret it now. I was planning on taking out the lights so that I could take pictures of what was modded and welded but haven't had the time to do so. Maybe in a few weeks that I have to go to the shop to do some work...

    Welding the popups to the hood

    Pop ups are just a headache, I used to live by the sea and had to clean and oil (lubricate) the pop up mechanism constantly since it would tend to get stuck due to the sea breeze and weather. Besides that, they don't give you the best visibility at all, it's rather poor I should say. I tried...

    Welding the popups to the hood

    Check these pictures, they basically have the light set up you're looking for. Don't remember where I got the pictures but I assume they are from a member here.These pictures gave me the idea to do the S13 conversion on my 1G. You could maybe follow this setup and fabricate a custom cover...

    Coil on plug question

    Interesting points you mention there... I'm running the DIS 2 as a smart ignitor, the transistor pack and stock ignitor have been removed. Actually the Haltech dealer here recommended to do so. I've only done some basic tuning yet but YES, it takes a while for the car to start. After it starts...

    Coil on plug question

    I have a doubt regarding the use of a coil on plug setup in my car. My original coil pack has a fisure or crack and eventhough it works fine I'll definitely change it sooner or later. I got my hands on a brand new COP setup cheap and was wondering mainly if it will work with my cars setup. I...

    Actually what took the most time was figuring out which headlights would correctly fit the conversion project I had in mind. I measured the original space I had after removing the pop ups and went to a local store that sells jdm used parts. There I found the S13 headlights and after measuring...

    S15 Sylvia Headlight Conversion [Merged 11-8]

    Basically the weight that was reduced from the conversion would be the weight of the pop up structure + the weight of the pop-up motors. One draw back from this conversion is that now it is virtually impossible for me to go for a CF hood (considering I have a custom hood now). I'll have to go...

    aftermarket oil pressure gauge really low

    I'm getting around 100psi at startup and around 35-40psi at idle. When I boost it pressure will go up to 110psi. I'm thinking these values are a little high though. My dipstick tends to pop out too by the way, could it be because of the oil pressure being too high. I'm also seeing some oil...

    Doubt on GT30R turbo

    I'll try to make this a little more specific because I don't want a turbo comparison war. What I would like to know is if there are any actual/proven benefits, performance wise of course if you use the Mitsu style exhaust housing rather than the original Garret housing or vice versa.

    Doubt on GT30R turbo

    I'm about to buy a GT30 dual ball bearing turbo for my Talon and have yet to decide which. The only doubt I have is maybe kindda silly but I have to ask. I don't know if I should buy a bolt-on GT30 (like the ones SBR or Forced Performance sell) which have the Mitsu style exhaust housing or if I...

    S15 Sylvia Headlight Conversion [Merged 11-8]

    Actually doing the wiring of the JDM silvia headlights is really easy. The JDM's actually have the low and high beam proyectors wiring join into a single 3 pin plug just like our original H4's so it is almost a plug n play install. You just have to wire the foglights and the corner/parking...

    S15 Sylvia Headlight Conversion [Merged 11-8]

    The bumper remains untouched, you just modify the side fenders (to fit the turn lights and match the hood) and do some mods on the hood to follow the line (more horizontal now) of the new headlights.

    Ordered Baer big brake track kit 13.1"!!!

    I ended up using 5mm spacers behind the 13" rotors to solve my clearance problems. The cause was that I have a camber correction kit (bolt style). If I correct the camber as positive as it goes the rotor fits perfectly but if I give it negative camber then it touches the lower control arm. I...

    Ordered Baer big brake track kit 13.1"!!!

    I'm using the 13" rotor that came with the 1G kit. I've only test fitted the drivers side, I'm gonna test fit the passenger side to see if I have the same problem. One thing I forgot to mention is that I have a front wheel camber kit which could be the cause of the clearance problems, could it...
