Its actually a 2 piece we still use the factory rear section.
And there is a min/max distance from the front yoke for the drive shaft loop.
"Maximum of 6" behind the front U-joint, made of 1/4" minimum thickness by 2" wide material, or 7/8" X .065" welded tubing."
Yea, that's with some regular old street tires on 17s. I'm sure I would have done better the next pass as I upped the boost from 32-33 to 34-35psi but broke the rear axle on launch.
I understand the wrinkle gives more traction and a spring effect, but I always figured more traction means...
Thats all? i may shoot for this record since i need something to shoot for now that i already hit my first goal. im just at a point were im breaking axles almost ever time i go out, im avoiding slicks for this reason but hear that it may stop the breaking of axles because they give more than...
I agree with what others are saying to stay with the 40 for a little while longer.
I think you just need a different tune and more seat time, your setup was almost like a twin to mine.
the stock intake manifold most likely is a restriction yet i'm still running mine completely unmodified...
in my eyes a atmosphere dumped wastegate is better.
reason being your not recirculation that exhaust back into the already too small exhaust to choke up.
if your driving on the street with a small turbo like a 20g and your worried about noise a good recirculating wastegate would be fine.
The drive shaft should slip on no matter if its 90-96 or 97-99. it only comes down to the trans being a 21 or 23 spline and of course the gearing but that's not the question here.
You may have a twisted shaft check the the splines if they are straight and free of debris and burs.
Well last time i updated this i broke the car so ima tell you wgat broke and what times i run at the 1/4 mile track today.
The parts i broke from the 1/8th mile include the stock 2 spider center diff and a driver side rear axle.
Luckily enough of the center diff survived that i...
Went to the local 1/8th mile drag strip to work out a few things and see how much it has improved from my avg 7.7 around 95mph times.
First pass off the trailer netted me a 7.4 at 104mph pass ;)
Everything looked good on the log so i upped the boost from the low 28psi to about...
I do have a folder that's a few inches thick with receipts. ;)
i just filled a small bowl with some motor oil and placed them in it, then take a small pin and press inside the lifter with it to bleed them and i just pump them up and down till im satisfied all the air is out then install.
I'm not sure what caused the lock up other than some side loading in the oil pump case, I had no signs of oil starvation on the bearings or anywhere else, and had good oil pressure the entire time. The pump did have helical gears, now I'm running straight cut gears.
The builds tab well... I...
Its been a little while since i updated this.
I finished the motoman break in and drained the oil did a few mods to the oil filter housing and got oil pressure to a reasonable level of about 85psi at 7k rpm.
Everything was good so i loaded it up on the trailer and me and my uncle went to...
So your the one who got them cool looking slugs from a machinist i know, im not gonna say who as its up to you to tell or not but i know now what those things were for and i may need a couple sets if they work out. :thumb:
should have just spent the money on a old foxbody they can be had for about 1500 or less all day long down here. now you got a pile of scrap dsm that could have went to a better home.
Dont get me wrong i like the idea your trying to be different but come on man.
The shop i use is in Orlando and they are top notch with 4g63s they have torque plates for them as well so i have faith in my machinist, if bogus was closer id obviously go to you but im already driving 2 1/2 hours to Orlando. lol
I did the PTW clearance on mine at .0030 The recommended clearance on my paperwork is .0025, but according to you bogus thats pretty tight?
my rings are set at .0168 for top and .0185 for bottom using the chart supplied from wiesco for street-mod turbo/nitrous at 85.5 bore.
I ordered a new 6bolt AWD Fidanza Flywheel, found a good deal on a T3 DNP Manifold, and even ordered my BEP t3 housing for my hx40.
Everything came in a few weeks later even my Turbo came back in from justin!
I didnt get a picture of the Flywheel before install simply...
well, i loved my ffofh besides the lowered oil pressure, even with brad penn 20-50 my idle was about 15psi at 1k idle was even lower at normal 750-800 idle but i couldn't idle to well that low with the 280 cams.
At wot i had 75psi from 5500 all the way to redline of 8500, now this engine...
I will go and say a bov is completely necessary for a larger turbo even if it has surge ports, I have first hand experience from this. My last hx40 I had a small 1g bov and at 30+ psi when I let off you could hear the surge as the bov was to small to vent the amount of airflow I was pushing. Ask...
I received a pretty large box of parts last week.
In that box was
4 oil squirters with check valves and crush washers
A set of ARP L19s
OEM head gasket
OEM front case
New auto tensioner
I quickly got to assembling everything
I started by putting the waterpump and...
Thanks, I may have met you that day but honestly can't place you to a face as I met a lot of nice people that day. I do remember the blue car your referring to as well, I also remember seeing an amazing amount of Evo 1-3.
Well its been a few weeks, Figured it was time to update this.
I dropped off my block at the machine shop 2 weeks ago and went and picked it up yesterday.
I then got everything out and ready to go in the block.
Sadly i forgot to remove the oil squirters before i gave the block to the...
