Re: 4age on bike carbs

Wait ... What? Lol.

In theory this makes sense, I'd be very interested to see how this plays out. Especially toying with the TPS and MAP sensor(s).

I've never seen/heard this being done before?!

Re: Custom front coilovers

I love T3 products and Gabe is the man. I am running all T3 suspension parts and they are awesome. Don't know why anyone would say anything bad about the company. I know, right? its mainly just kids on the internet complaining about the price. I'm just like, well ... thats the price you pay for qua...

Re: Fortune Auto Coilovers Review 2017

Nice review....they look quality and your car looks great. Thank you!! UPDATE Its been a few weeks since I've installed these and so far so good.

Amazing how T3 replied to my e-mail within minutes.



I don't care what anyone says about that company and their products, their customer service is top notch.

Fortune Auto Coilovers Review 2017

I did some extensive searching and was only able to find one review of the Fortune Auto 500 Series coilovers for the AE86, which was a few years old. I know these are popular in the s-chassis drift crowd, and I have a good buddy with these on his IS300 and they felt really good, so I decided to take...

I think that 3C7 was one of the colors offered overseas because its not showing up on the database here at work, but its found on the internet. And it doesn't seem to be offered in a two-tone scheme either.
