Re: Dancing headlight issue

Try cleaning the connection to the retract relay (by the battery). Make sure the pins/plugs aren't corroded or caked with crap, and the wires arent broke.

The grease that was used in this connector is old and gotten pasty over the years. Not to mention it likey has collected lots of crap too.

Please explain what you found the exact cause to be and how you ultimately fixed it so that other members encountering this issue in the future know what to look at.

Re: JDM redlines question

Your 3rd brakelight is hooked up to the running lights, but needs to be connected to the switch.

I didn't have to rewire mine- i just let the extra sockets dangle without bulbs.

Hopefully you have a multimeter.

Set it to check for continuity and test between the "black" wire you think is for the Tach, and the black wire going to the igniter.

California tries to but they do it differently.

In CA your headlight must be XX inches from ground level. I think that number is 21 inches but dont quote me on it.

Re: 4agze swap wiring woes!

Do you have fuel pressure? Is the fuel pump still controlled by the COR? You should be able to hear the fuel pump turn on but it's better to verify this with rail pressure (pump could be running but not producing adequate pressure to get fuel atomization). When the AFM detects intake flow, it provid...

Im with OST on this one. I wouldn't use a dremel either. You dont need/want to remove much material.

Unfortunately, you'd still get a ref ticket for removing the EGR even if you were smog exempt (and probably have to pay a hefty fined).

Re: Smog exemption???

I highly doubt California will ever change the exempt status to include anything post-1975 and here's why: In 1984, the Smog Check program began in California. Cars made in 1966 and later had to pass the idle test and visual inspection every 2 years. Then, in 1998, the laws were changed, which grant...

Re: HPI oil cooler instructions

You dont need instructions unless it has mounting hardware. Even then, it should have pictures. In general, inlet and outlet sides don't matter as much as fitting orientation. Avoid mounting it with the fittings below the core as it will likely cause only a portion of the cooler to work (gravity alw...

Usually the tie rods are the only thing that need to be replaced unless it was submerged in water for a period of time. The "seal" you're referring is just a dust cover (you can replace that easily without rebuild if it bothers you). The only reason youd need to full rebuild is if the pini...

It's likely similar in operation but my guess is that the MSD parts are potted into place to prevent failure from vibration (hence the box shape with flying leads).

I used a Wedge bracket with Recaro siders for my Bride Stradia II (Bride brackets were special order with 8-week lead time).

My setup positions the seat in the lowest possible position. Im considering ordering the Bride bracket cuz it raises the seat about 1/2 inch (I'm short, lol).
