  1. New 1G products coming soon

    Interested in everything, really admire that this community is still putting out new parts for our not-so-new cars. It sounds as if your tubular subframe is intended to replace (most) of the factory trailing arms. Beyond the logistics of getting those to you to modify, it would also limit my...
  2. Archer Fab T3 standard placement turbo manifolds

    Something to consider is that this manifold appears to place the turbo directly where the front engine mount bracket would be on a 1G. I may be wrong. Great looking work either way!
  3. 1G AWD Rear Koni Install Hardware - What Goes Where?

    So everyone knows, I am not using the GC kit. I am using the discontinued and difficult to find 1G AWD Koni rears and the discontinued and not so difficult to find Eibach Pro Kit, resulting in an upgraded and lowered strut and not a hybrid-type coilover. Talonsnwbrdr, I hadn't previously seen...
  4. 1G AWD Rear Koni Install Hardware - What Goes Where?

    I've looked through the VFAQs, haven't seen anything concerning installing Konis actually meant for the 1G. The 2G Koni/GC in a 1G guide doesn't readily mention anything about these pieces. For clarity, I'm using the 8040-1129Sport shocks and Eibach Pro Kit springs. I'll be trimming the...
  5. 1G AWD Rear Koni Install Hardware - What Goes Where?

    This stuff came in a bag with some 1G rear Konis I was able to source from a vendor on eBay Australia. Pretty costly too, but I figured they were worth the investment. I took my stock rear strut off and have disassembled it. A couple pieces in this kit didn't look familiar from the get-go...
  6. Fix for peeling 1g dash?

    Holy thread resurrection. But you already realize that. When I first considered having to combat a peeling dash, Gorilla Glue was my first thought. The holes he mentioned are a good idea. If anything's going to work, it's that. May want to PM him, as he may not see your post here otherwise...
  7. Missing starter plate...

    Those aren't as bad as I thought. Grade 11... hard, but brittle... but hard! I'd honestly hit each of them with a propane torch for about 30 seconds, pound a 6-point 17mm socket onto them, make sure the flywheel can't move, obviously, and crank on it with the longest breaker bar you can muster...
  8. Financing an eagle talon

    I haven't seen a 1G for sale at a dealership in over a decade. That was on eBay, never in person. I've seen a few 2G's over the past couple years. There was a nice silver GSX going for what I'd considered a steal at one point... mmm, if I'd only had a trailer, or enough money to rent one and...
  9. Missing starter plate...

    Some heat and the Craftsman Bolt-Out tools you mentioned would be the first thing I tried. Note that there's an impact grade version of those tools, since you mentioned using one of those. I primarily use hand tools and thus only have their regular, low profile version. The flywheel bolts are...
  10. lowered camber issues

    What kind of shocks do you have? Most options available for us in the OEM replacement/bolt-on category are killed in short order by springs like that... actually probably 90% or more are snuffed out early by Sportlines alone. Yours may already be gone. If so, you'll want to replace them, despite...
  11. South Bend Clutch Users Questionairre- looking for updates on everyone's setups!

    Specific model used Pressure plate type: HD-Series Disk type: TZ-Series full Kevlar Specific model flywheel used ACT Streetlite Chromoly Duration of usage AND mileage on clutch Roughly 14,000 miles over four years. Power levels and Drag ET's/MPH if available Slightly...
  12. 1gen Front lower control arms bushing poly

    I've finally gotten around to doing this with my car and was directed here by the OP's post on another forum. Where/can I get the aluminum bushing pictured above? I'd like to have a set for the next time I have them off and definitely don't have a machine to make them myself. This install would...
  13. Brands/places to avoid when buying a CV axle?

    For future reference, I talked to Marty at Raxles a few weeks ago and he said that they no longer produce DSM axles due to a lack of demand causing it to be impractical to import the parts he uses in bulk from Europe. This made me very sad, I trusted him to give me a product with quality...
  14. Real autometer gauges or fake?

    The pictures are not of authentic Auto Meter products to the best of my knowledge. A real one from the Carbon Fiber series would look like this. Edit: Check the classifieds on this site, or try eBay to get a better price on an Auto Meter or other high quality gauge.
  15. 99 3000gt style bumper

    It also reminds me of the late 90s-early 2000 Camaros. Catfish, hooo! I like them all, by the way. The 2Gb and 3kGT are just too similar for me to be able to justify messing with either one. The Evo X bumpers are quite interesting on DSMs though. Looks slicker on a 2G, makes the 1G look...
  16. Clutch all the way out, barley moving.

    What I'd like to know is how he took the front axles out. The driver side would stay plugged if he left the center shaft in, but a missing passenger side axle would leave the transmission open and let a good amount of your oil leak out. Not to mention burning up the aforementioned viscous...
  17. exhaust manifold studs

    I have been using the SSS all stainless kit for a few years now. Used a small screw extractor to remove an old stud that was broken off below the head's surface. Coated the threads of the new studs that were going into the head with nickel anti-seize, installed them, and I foresee no problem...
  18. 1g Factory Amp

    1G amps were built into the head unit.
  19. DSM's in movies and TV.

    Black 1Ga spotted near the 35 minute mark of the biography, "The Ice Man, Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer."
  20. Starting issues - No / Doesn't / Won't Start - MERGED

    Resolved. I did the timing right. The plugs just chose then to foul/gap to the point that ignition was impossible, as stated in my previous post. Took it for a drive, everything's running right as rain again. I was just asking those last questions to learn what all could happen if the CAS was...
  21. drivers side axle help

    If the rotor won't come off, spray it down with PB Blaster or WD-40 every once in a while, maybe for a couple days. Lightly smack around the outside edge with a hammer (not rubber) and the shock should eventually knock enough rust off that it falls loose on the studs. Same concept for the axle...
  22. Starting issues - No / Doesn't / Won't Start - MERGED

    I knew I couldn't damage the valves by hand, that's why I took that particular approach. Was going to check the timing marks, but didn't get that far since I felt it slip in the process. Took the valve cover off to ensure no rockers were kicked off and that all the springs were still tight. Not...
  23. Starting issues - No / Doesn't / Won't Start - MERGED

    The timing was initially right, but the hydraulic tensioner was either on its way out (not a complete failure, which is odd), or the belt stretched to the extent that no more slack could be taken out of it. The old belt still looks just fine. I attempted to roll it over by hand from the exhaust...
  24. Starting issues - No / Doesn't / Won't Start - MERGED

    This is the too long;didn't read part of my post. I want to explain everything in excruciating detail, as it's possible I've done something without realizing it by following this course of actions. If you want to try to tackle this with your guns half-loaded, skip to the bottom. I started the...
  25. 3" long downpipe & catback too much for 14b?

    I have a 1G exhaust manifold, unported 2G O2 housing, a full 3" Punishment downpipe and Megan exhaust (their resonator in place of the cat, and another on the midpipe. Never experienced any creep. Your manifold and O2 housing may encourage creep, but it's really not that serious of an issue. As...
  26. Broken tranny bolt PT2. PICS

    First, center punch it. Then try to coax it to turn by walking a punch around the outside in a counter-clockwise motion (pointed in and somewhat in the direction you're going). Hopefully this will jar it loose. A left hand drill and bit set would probably be your best bet at this point. In lieu...
  27. Do you reuse tranny fluid after clutch change?

    "Transmission fluid" is usually used in reference to automatic transaxle hydraulic fluid, where gear oil is what standard gearboxes use. You mention changing a clutch so we'll assume it's a standard and you're wanting to know if it's cool to reuse the oil. It's up to you. I'd suggest it though...
  28. Calipers... Confirm that these cannot be rebuilt

    Napa has them all listed on their site. They're rebuilt OEM units. If you have one near you, call them up and have them order one for you. I don't think there's a difference between the rears on early and late 92 AWD's like there is on the front, but order accordingly if there is.
  29. Picture speaks for its self

    I think they were going for the Corvette look. Phail.
  30. so here is to people who don't wear seat belts

    Glad you're both alright! What in the world caused this accident to begin with?!
  31. Vote for my girlfriend!

    I'll have a number 9 and a number 14 to go please. :D Voted, looks like she's got this one pretty much in the bag. How long does the contest run?
  32. Do you want a Skyline? Read this!

    #1639.
  33. rpm's drop when i turn a/c on why?

    Turn the AC off quickly to avoid stalling until you get it fixed. My brother's Laser had that issue for a while until he quit driving it. Now I've gotten into them, I think the IAC motor may be to blame (as it is for many cases of idle surge, as well). Perhaps you do have a vacuum leak though...
  34. Fuel in oil problems.

    Suggestion would be to see if you've got air (and other things) slipping past your rings into the crankcase. Do that by pressurizing the system and listening for escaping air. You'd ideally do this with a leak-down tester but you already know the issue (fuel in oil). Take off your oil cap and...
  35. Thoughts on shimming pivot ball vs extended slave rod.

    Try the master cylinder adjustment before shimming anything. Then check for any pedal slop. That wound up being my problem after having checked it once before and thinking it was alright. There's only one clutch I've ever heard of being acceptable to use the extended rod with, which still makes...
  36. Best Clutch for 350ish?

    I'll yet again be a proponent of South Bend Clutch's full-face Kevlar disk that Cris linked to in the first reply. The TZ kit is claimed to handle 375 pounds of torque at the flywheel with a 2100-ish PP. If that's not enough, up the PP to a 2600 and you'll probably be set for all that stroker...
  37. New DSM, oil thin like water.

    WIX/Napa Gold or Purolator for the filter. They've all got the anti-drainback valve. Go OEM if you want though, nothing wrong with that. All about the same price. I'll never run a Fram or K&N oil filter though. The oil's weight is probably really low, might have been changed to 5W-30 for the...
  38. GS-T to GSX Fuel Pump Splice

    If you're still having issues, you may want to look in a factory service manual for the model year(s) you're dealing with and see if their wiring diagrams shed any light on what each wire does.
  39. 4g63 in other cars?

    Check this site out. :: Project Zero G :: Using a Mighty Max transmission is a little more involved than you might think, and you may discover that one of the other options is more viable.
  40. 3.5L v-6 conversion

    I believe a cage would help quite a bit, and would also be a good idea for something putting out that much power. Two'fer. LOL
  41. STM shifter bearing kit

    Doesn't look like you're missing any dust shields... just different colors. Short a couple cotter pins though. I prefer the kits like Vette linked to. Don't have to polish or press anything to make them fit. Mine are aluminum from Buschur; Torque Solution makes anodized black ones.
  42. Can you guys lead me in the right direction?

    Turbo DSM = broken for the first half of your ownership, and more so if you're putting a lot of power down. If it's your first (read: only) car... invest in some good walking shoes. At this point you probably don't have the tools or knowledge to fix it yourself. Don't let that discourage you...
  43. Relay issue?

    Check all the fuses. There are three fuse boxes, one on either side of the engine bay, and by the driver's left foot. If the car runs, the negative terminal not being tight isn't what's causing your problems. Might want to get some new terminals though.
  44. Noob bolt size question

    The part number is MB288653, with a description of "flange self locking, 10" so I'd assume the pitch is 10x1.25. The size of the head is either 14 or 17mm.
  45. Is this brand new triple BB turbo supposed to sound like this?

    Sounds like ball bearings to me too.
  46. Nicked brake line over shock tower

    1) Replace the entire line. See if you can get the line from the dealer, or make your own. 2) Cut the line and use a compression fitting (not sure how safe this is, or if it's legal there). Find whichever wheel it goes to and bleed it after the repair. Not sure how/why an ABS-delete would make...
  47. turns on then shuts off

    If it still doesn't run after installing the entire intake properly, see if you can get it to do what it did in the video (run for a second or two). Then try to narrow it down to an air (what seems to be your problem now), spark, or fuel problem. Probably not the latter, as our pumps don't seem...
  48. Transmission / Motor Mount Bolts

    If you want the proper bolts, order them from JNZ Tuning. Here is a link with their selections of transfer case bolt kits (auto and manual) as well as the universal transmission-to-block bolts. Use the numbers below to order the other stuff you need through their OEM catalog. For anyone who...
  49. Dericing American roads.

    For what it's worth, I am not a fan of the look or performance of the new Chargers. Couldn't hear the exhaust in the one I drove over the sound of the music, and I really tried. Meh. Someone act like a V8 fanatic and tell him about this huge American-car-only (which is half true, ARGH Evos!)...
  50. 90' awd driverside interm. shaft?

    A new one would cost a pretty penny, if you can even get one anymore. Mine is getting a rebuild soon, reusing everything (shaft and bracket) but the bearing and seals. You can probably get used ones from a few vendors on here, you may also see one in the classifieds from time to time. Mitsubishi...
