Re: 2GR swap

Very interesting, would any gr engine bolt up to the is250 6 speed? I also wonder how an ls1/6 swap would compare to this in price, weight, etc. Please don't ex-communicate me for suggesting it! :)

Re: AE86: Setting up 4 Links

To preload you just tighten the bolts holding the links with the links pushed all the way up. This only works with stock bushings... It just makes the car sit a tiny bit lower, but doesn't really do anything besides that. Just install it however it's easiest for you and don't wory about it ;)

Re: Having trouble with running lean on Silvertop / ECU advi

Sounds strange. Usually when something goes wrong the engine runs richer than normal. Maybe the wideband is reading a false lean condition? This can happen if you have an exhaust leak or a cylinder doesn't fire due to spark/etc since the wideband only picks up the unburnt oxygen. Hope that helps, bu...

Engine tick when braking

So I've asked my mechanic friends about this and they are all stumped. When I press the brakes on the car, sometimes the car makes a sound that's kind of between a tick and throwout bearing noise that's the same speed as the engine rpm. It can happen even if the car is standing still in neutral with...

Re: upgrading stock brakes?

I've heard that brake lines make a noticeable improvement, and it's also a good idea safety-wise to replace old rubber lines. If you're worried about overheating brakes, get some fresh high temp brake fluid too. Brake pads might be more of a personal preference things and it's debated wether or not ...

Crazy build and nice mr2!

Not sure I understand what you're doing here, but are the molds just so you have a better idea of what the port looks like for when you modify them? Maybe you can laser scan the molds and do some sweet CFD on them :)
