Re: Speed Master Racing

I've bought throttle bodies from him that he waterjetted. They were awesome. He's a solid guy and shipping is usually a week and a half to 2 and a half weeks. As far as results, follow his IG, he has consistently put together 200+ HP 4AGs NA and that is not an easy thing to do. I haven't used his he...

Re: notnilc20's 1986 ae86 Hatch build/restoration

Great video man! I loved seeing the backlash measurements with the micrometer. I've never made it that far with mine but I feel like it might be coming up and I feel pretty confident I can handle that tedious work. Might need a few beers to keep the patience going but still doable! Keep crushing it!

Re: My recap and ongoing final stretch of building my Hatch

Yep, car's still at the shop for paint. The owner and I became really good friends and I pretty much can go there and use their stuff to work on the car. Unfortunately I moved 2 hours away a couple months ago so it's a little harder getting down there. I guess I should update a bit. I've been contin...

Re: RWD water relocation kit opinions?

I had the v3 installed on my BT. Install was fairly easy, though I removed my heater core so you'll have a couple more hoses to connect. Temps were steady and never had issues with it. All in all it was a great purchase and I found I liked it much better than the T3 version that was priced way higher.

I just read this entire thread from front to back. Killer stuff dude. Appreciate the love man. So I took some finished shots of the wiring well 99% complete.

Re: Oxygen Sensor help

I'll get tech drawings offline when I get home tonight, but the best thing I would recommend is finding the pin in the ecu plug that comes from the O2 sensor, se your meter on continuity and test either of the two wires you suspect to be it. Ensure the plug is unplugged from the ecu when testing. I'...

Been a while Club4AG. Just throwing some little updates out as the car is still sitting for paint and progress is slow while I have been transferring out of the military. The bay progress speaks for it self. It is slow and tedious but I am hoping to really make some strong headway by next week. http...

Engine Management for BEAMS swap....

Curious to see what route you BEAMS swap guys are going and what type of numbers you so with your swaps. Any feedback for someone about to jump in? I was thinking of going Haltech Elite 1500. I know the dual VVTI is an issue for the more affordable ECUs.
Any feedback is appreciated!

Re: Wiring Kouki fender light OR clear bumper lens lights

If you do it that way, the corner light becomes JUST a turn signal. My way it maintains a parking light function when the headlight switch is in parking light or headlight positions. So if you're ok with that light just flashing then this way will work but if you want the functionality of the light ...

Re: Strange wiring under steering column

I'm pretty sure it's a 3-pin green module around the Driver kick or above it on the dash support bar. I've completely revamped my dash harness so I don't have a great reference to go off of for you, just memory. I have the Haynes manual if you need the schematic too! Good luck!

Re: Strange wiring under steering column

If I had to guess, either someone was cheap and decided to wire this up because their factory flasher stopped working or they were trying to wire in bumper lights. I would track down the factory flasher plug and module and see if it works or if you at least have the plug.

Re: My recap and ongoing final stretch of building my Hatch

Thanks man. Small update to the bay work: Stopped by the shop just to chill and they had the bay filled and roughly sanded so you can get an idea of what it's going to be. I think in the coming weeks we'll see a lot more since most of the labor work is done. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q...

Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes :-P

Could you make your own? I've always wondered if you could using bicycle brake cable and then soldering it all together or something along those same lines. I guess even two throttle cables, if cut properly with shielding would work out too. Just spit balling here Mister DEE ;)

By harness I mean connector, we called them harnesses in the car audio field. Either way I need to check them out. What specific tools did you need? I have crimpers and strippers, can't imagine needing much more than that. Great work!

Well went to Showzone motorsports here in Charleston, SC and they're making quick work of the engine bay.

Liking the clean mods, I remember the IS pedal giving me a bunch of crap too but it was well worth the headaches when it was all said and done! I haven't posted much since mine has been in the shop to get paint but following what you've been doing is keeping the motivation up! Keep the updates coming!

Fenders and doors look awesome man. As far as flares go, I know on mine with the wheels I'm running, we are rolling the front and rear and giving the front a tiny bit of negative camber to get them fitting under the fenders i.e. -2-3 degrees. The rears we have to pull as well but shouldn't be much o...

Honestly, the first thing I would do anytime thecar is acting screwy ischeck and re check all the grounds. take any rust off, run new wire to different ground points (I.E. Block to chassis, etc...). Once that is done, slowly remove tape but take detailed pictures of everything. You don't want to rem...
