Brake Master leakage, a tale of woe

Hey all, for about 4-5 months I have had a very mysterious brake fluid leak. Sometimes i would lose a whole reservoir of fluid overnight and come out to squishy brakes from air getting in the lines. Other times i would not lose any fluid for over a month. I have never found any puddles of fluid or l...

Re: 4AGE High Cruising RPM, Safe&Reliable or not?

if 3k hits your ocd zone dont drive an 86, miata, any motorcycle, or any two stroke; It all depends what the motor is designed for.

These arent some POS unbalanced v8 thats going to window the block after 5 minutes above 4k

Re: Compression: What is acceptable?

We did retest compression after turning the thing over for a bit. The low cylinder came up into the 175-180ish range and the others stayed more or less the same. Billzilla: could you elaborate on "Sediment? No such thing, only dried/burnt oil that covers most things without direct flow or conta...

Re: Compression: What is acceptable?

Those compression numbers were on a cold motor. They put some oil in it (the engine not the cylinders) and ran it on this bench thing with an electric motor EDIT: with the throttles open and a belt around the crank pulley. When they were cranking the motor nothing sounded out of order inside it. I f...

Compression: What is acceptable?

Went to go look at a blacktop and externally looked ok. Pulled off the valve cover and looked fairly low mileage although looked like it had been sitting in the warehouse for a bit. Compression test number (1-2-3-4): 180-150-200-200 On a JDM 20v Blacktop do you think its just a head gasket failure o...

WTB: Blacktop MT ECU and Flywheel

Hello I am swapping a Blacktop into my AE86 and the only thing hanging up the project is a lack of flywheel and ECU. Need BT flywheel, and need any 5MT or 6MT BT ECU.

I am in the SF bay area, CA 94043

I am also possibly interested in a clutch with the flywheel depending on condition.

Re: Group buy on high quality header feeler

Just wanted to pop in and express my interest.

Spec Suggestions:

1) Ability to work with LHD cars with both types of racks and clear the floor (duh)
2) Flange holes for 20v and 16v bolt configs
3) 4-2-1 pipes if possible
4) price under 450
5) EGR bung (not a deal breaker)

Re: Opinions? Itbs vs carbs

ur post is kind of hard to decipher, are you talking about ITB vs carbs on a 16v or a 20v?
Some spacing of questions and elaboration might get u a response.
