Re: FX-16 gear ratio/manual trans

Yeah I'm with Aukword. I think your best bet would be finding a smaller final drive. Surely there's an option out there for the fwd/mr2 guys out there. I know all the b-series honda dudes would swap the 5th gear out of LS integras since they're longer, but idk what thats like for the fwd 4age guys.

Re: Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

If this were available when I was a broke-a$$ engineering student, I'd be all over it; Low risk/high reward. On a stock 16v? I took a few Mechatronics classes that used a BASIC Stamp when I was in school. I had to build a robot that could handle a bunch of different obstacle courses. For the last t...

Re: Need help finding this part or recommendation

The Fujitsubo doesn't seem to state it can work with 20v since the bolt alignment is a bit different The SMR2U looks good, but same issue as Fujitsubo, spend this kind of money want it to just fit. Battle Garage is interseting, but it says "pre-order" kind of dont want to have to wait mon...

Re: Need help finding this part or recommendation

Ughh ... I would love to have that header. Or any TODA 4age parts for that matter, but there's no way I can afford them Lol. Fujitsubo has a good header, but I would imagine the real issue would be finding someone to buy/ship it for you. https://www.fujitsubo.co.jp/prods/detail/000000000000001159/00...

Hesitation at low rpms

For the past few months I've noticed my AE86 has a hesitation at low RPMS. It only occurs during initial acceleration, for example taking off in 1st gear from a stop light. I would press the accelerator and it would hesitate until about 3k and then take off. I tried looking up to see if it was a com...

I've always wondered how a smallport head would perform with bigport cams. Seems like it would be a good and cheap little gain in power. Bigport cams offer 240 degrees duration with 7.56mm lift, where as smallport cams have only 232 and 7.1mm
