Re: Help Identifying JDM front Zenki Turn Signal connectors

You could pop the pins out of the connectors and fit the US connectors to the jdm lamps.
I don't now if you have a park light in the US like the JDM lamp shown.

Re: 20V BT BOGGY UNDER 4K

The blacktop VVT operation is off at low rpm, on during mid rpm and off again at high rpm (your cam spec will determine what your engine prefers), unlike the silvertop that is off below 4400rpm(ish) and on above that rpm. Check for fault codes, make sure the throttle position sensor is set within sp...

Re: Can you bolt on a 20v head on a 4AGZE short block?

Silvertop is non interference but blacktop is interference.
Yes the 20v head will bolt on, check piston to valve clearance. (you should have plenty but check anyway)

Re: 15x7 +40 4x114.3 Slipstreams on 86 GT-S

Using this:

and inputting the stock 14" Intra wheel spec of 6j +21 against yours, you need 32mm of spacing just to match the inner wheel to strut clearance.

Re: excessive oil pressure on fresh engine rebuild

I get about 90 psi max on 2 of my 16v engines (6kg/cm2 on gauge) both with the later type AE92/101 pumps.
I think when cold around 50-60 psi and around 30 psi at idle when up to temperature.

Re: Starting my 20v blacktop

Have you 12V on the black/white wire at the coil and igniter with the key in the run/on position?
A quick check to see if the ecu is powered up is check for 5V on the yellow wire of the MAP sensor and TPS sensor.

Rear end vibration is most likely due to an aftermarket lsd. If you feed in a bit more power the lsd should lock and the inner tyre will slip instead.
