Re: V I N T A G E T O U G E

Most of the footage used in these videos already comes from youtube. Instead of using english search terms use japanese kanji.

Same for google, use japanese kanji and you'll find alot of blogs full of cool stuff.

Re: T3 camber plates

Reason for not going coilovers is there aren't any on the market with the correct paperwork for them to be legal overhere. Cops are already eyeing my car up everytime i pass them, can't risk getting defected.

Re: T3 camber plates

Update on this. If anyone is thinking about using the camber plates with oem top hat, don't. It doesn't work. The top hat doesn't spin so the spring has to spin to turn which makes the steering feel awful. In my case I had the rubber bush that goes between the top hat and springs and it acted like ...

Re: What did you do to your car today?

About halfway through my distributor rebuilt. Got 2 new seals on, drilled out the little pin in the shaft/gear. Still have to get a bearingpuller to get the bearing out and replace the inner seal.

Finished most of the enginebay cleanup and retaped alot of the wiring in wiring loom cloth tape.

Before you now it you'll be por15'ing everything. I did my the floor pans, boot floor and a bunch of other stuff.

Did you scuff up the paint before the por15? Sometimes this stuff reacts kinda funky.

Valve cover gaskets probably also need replacing. Big chance it's just the valve cover gaskets like gotzoom said. No need to pani...

Re: 4AGE High Cruising RPM, Safe&Reliable or not?

If your engine is well maintained, the higher rpms aren't really a problem just noisy. Imagine what it would be for people with a 4.5/4.7 rear-end, even higher rpms.
