Re: CloudStrife's AE88

I have just been moping around all depressed and **** lol.

I really don't think I'm gonna rebuild this motor myself. I might start looking into shops to do a stock rebuild on the 16v.

Any ideas on cost?

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

lol, not a fan of those but I had a red 99' SI with 14 pounds of boost.. Motor was also built... Thing was a crazy beast. It actually got stolen, and chopped up... Lost about 10k on that.

Hondas are reliable and fun but I just never really like their looks.. always seemed boring. Minus the NSx

Re: the never ending story...

Thanks for the reply man. Not to beat a dead horse I'm just still a little confused..

Are you using 16v cores? Seems strange that they would all clog or leak.. Are these new or used?

Re: New Aftermarket manual steering rack

Oh yeah, and if you want to be a real cunt (which was what I was gonna do lol), you would just pick up a AW11 rack from AZ, put your old PS rack in (take off lines), and give em the box. Half the time they don't even bother looking, the other half the time they can't tell the difference haha.

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

It's just sitting at my buddy's house. I have no idea what I'm gonna do. My buddy is a pretty gangsta mechanic, and I might trade him a BG familia for tearing down to internals and freeing up that bottom end.

All signs point to me selling/getting rid of it though.

So let's say we're in fairytale land. Say I buy a 20v. If I'm really unwilling to splice, are the 20v harness plugs pretty much plug and play?

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

I just really don't want to be kept here because of swapping in a 20v, and I've really no interest in anything besides a 4AGE. It's half the reason I bought the car lol.

If I've already got a donor RWD 4AG, shouldn't it be cake for me to swap in a FWD one?

I dunno man. I mean, we won't know until it's broken down. I don't think I mentioned it, but I have a DC2 GSR. It's really hard to convince myself how great the AE86 is, when it's better handling, better engine, better comfort, and 10x easier to find parts for. Plus, I'm supposed to move to WA here ...

Re: rear tire skipping under hard braking

Just to let you know, we didn't end up needing that SST.. I forget the part call out, but whatever that weird tool attachment was, we didn't need it. The fronts were rebuilt and powder coated.

I was following the Brazilian guy's write up on YT.

That's why I always go 15s. The modest increase of the wheel weight is nothing compared to the amazing selection that reveals itself to you when you bump up an inch from 14. I remember scouring through tirerack and the internet for decent 14s on my Mazda Familia. I just gave up and never bothered go...

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

I pulled the hose after the check valve (going to the booster) off, after running the car for a bit and turning off.. and a good amount of pressure released from the hose, hissing and what not. Wouldn't that mean normal operation?
