Re: 20v Blacktop High Idle

Not sure if this was mentioned as I didn't see it skimming through but, check your throttle cable and make sure it's not too tight. It happened to me while doing my swap. It made my throttle adjustment more than likely pointless. But I also went through the TPS and adjusted it for same measure l. Ca...

Re: Engine noise, please help, video link

I interpret this to mean that there is a part that bolts to the end of the exhaust cam that is used to drive the rotor. This part should bottom out on the face of the exhaust cam gear so that the gear is clamped against the end of the cam as usual. In your case the part bottoms out on the cam and d...

Re: Engine noise, please help, video link

I found out exactly what the noise was. The camshaft clocking pin was wearing into the cam gear on the intake side. The cam gear had play in because the distributor relocation kit part (that holds the rotor button), was tight against the cam inside but not the cam gear. Tightening the bolt more woul...

Sorry I can't help but I am curious what power you make when its said and done. Can you please post results. I'm going to "petition" for a tuning section on this site. One subforum for carb setups and one for fuel injection. A lot of good information could be gathered.

Re: Engine noise, please help, video link

Could it just be noisy valvetrain?? So, I did hook up my VVT solenoid plug after changing the intake pulley and it now engages. So my thoughts are noisy valvetrain or something to do with the SQ Engineering distributor relocation. The exhaust cam can be moved if grab the sides and rock it towards an...

Re: Just cant do it anymore!! RSR exhaust replacement

I love my exhaust but it was on their when I bought it. Not sure where to buy it. OBX header, no cat, Jasma catback. Engine is a 20V but it sounded good with the 16V too. Not too loud, I'm 33. I'm getting old too lol

Re: Engine won't fire until I stop cranking?

This might seem elementary but do you have a choke on the carbs that is set up. Are you giving a few pumps of the throttle to inject some fuel? Maybe your fuel pressure is bleeding off badly. Does it help if you hold the throttle open when you first start it incase it is flooding while sitting.

Re: High Oil Pressure AE86

A lot of times the wiring itself is not so great underneath the insulation. I agree with it being an electrical issue and could be the instrument cluster. I am having the same issue with my temperature gauge. After all, the reading is based off resistance. Corrosion (creating high resistance) will t...

From what I understand, the noise would be louder and increase with RPM. This noise goes away at 2000/2500 rpm.

I'm pretty sure the springs have to do with the synchronizer keys. I'll probably just bend the plate back to the same gap if no one has any insight.

High performance street tires, no R comps as this is my first track day (HPDE). But I do plan on running R comps eventually, just not sure pads will last until then. It's at Mid-Ohio, early April for Grid Life event. Thanks for the responses so far.

Like the title says. Must be in good working condition. No bad/burnt parts inside.

Actually, I will consider known bad ECUs with information on what's wrong and if the price is right.
