Re: Largest streetable cams?

Even if you had a log style intake or exhaust manifold it's not going to suck in exhaust from other cylinders My apologies, but I'm going to have to respectfully disagree http://www.circletrack.com/enginetech/ctrp_1011_race_engine_reversion/ at part-throttle and possibly wide open throttle (WOT), t...

Re: Largest streetable cams?

You were doing pretty good until you got to here. First off I am going to assume you meant can literally suck exhaust gases straight out of the intake manifold from neighboring cylinders because what you said makes absolutely no sense. A blast from the past! Apologies on the late reply. But No- I d...

Re: Pumping Brakes = Stall?

Siding with the gent above me. Disconnect the booster from the intake and plug it up so theres no vac leaks on the intake. WARNING I know this goes without saying (hopefully, but JUST in case!) Doing so WILL disable the power-assist of your braking system. The pedal WILL be harder to push/modulate. ...

110% indeed possible if you use all the required emissions equipment. But in all honesty, such a set up would be less than fun to set up properly for an ITB setup, and would dampen many of the relatively few benefits of running ITBs in the first place. The BEST bet if you want a "smog legal&quo...

Also how much does an f20 swap run? That sounds like a filthy idea. Depends a -lot- on who you know and what you can have done. The price of the engine and "most" of what you need varies relatively wildly- but BALLPARK? Expect to pay in the 3500ish range for the engine/harness/ecu/trans- ...

Re: I am entirely new to imports need advice.

You could go with a 7AGE, a local shop successfully makes 7AGEs plants 250hp(200-210whp) and 170#/ft of torque, all under 10,000 rpm. Cost isn't cheap.... You can build a decent 7AGE that will make 160 whp for around $6000 Yowch, sounds a bit pricey. For that kind of money I'd rather do a f20 swap ...

Re: I am entirely new to imports need advice.

The f20 is indeed a sick nasty swap. 9000 rpms redline- Make 240 hp stock, which put the upper end of your goal to the wheels (around 200), & about 130+ pounds of torque at the wheels, not to mention they have one of the best 6 speeds around (The input on the transmissions is actually reduced by...

Shocks shouldnt alter ride height. Not to say that they cant , im saying that they shouldnt . Checking for a blown shock is relatively easy- Especially rears on the rolla. Since you can see them quite easily, a visual is 9 times out of 10 a good indication. Inspect it, if you find oil- shes blown. D...

I know its a refurbished unit but toss a multimeter on the system and check to make sure the alternator is charging properly first. Realistically speaking you should be able to start a car, disconnect the battery, and run it completely off the alternator. If you cant- Its not charging properly
