Re: Removing stubborn bushings

if you're talking about the metal sleeve that's normally around the stock bushing, that needs to STAY IN the arm. Burn or press the stock rubber bushing out, leave the metal shell/sleeve in, and put your poly bushings in.

Re: Battle Garage (BGRS) - Pipercross Filters (sale)

Do you know if anyone has ever used these on beams 3sge using the Xcessive adapter? I think the TB spacing may be off from OEM by just a tiny bit.

Re: Oil Temp sensor mounting??

I use a Blitz sandwich adapter (similar to what jondee posted) Works fine for me. Plus it's mounting surface is larger, so I can now use the larger diameter filters, which is nice.

I get the same message every time I log in too, even though I know i'm typing my password correctly. No matter what I have to do it twice, and even though I also have the "log me in automatically" button checked, I still have to re-log in almost every time I visit the site.

Re: New to 86's, Tire/Wheel Question(s), GTS Hatch

thats totally up to you, and how you want your car to look. Also has a lot to do with your suspension setup and what wheels you want to buy. Some wheels will only give you 1 or 2 options for different offsets, while others might give you 10 or 15..

He didnt ask how to make it rwd. He asked how to make it into an ae86. All the fab skills in the world wont accomplish that, because it is impossible. Thats like saying if you have gardening skills you can turn a tomato into a turnip.

Re: which engine has more potential for more power?

You could just be like me and take that money you were going to use on a 20v and buy a beams 3s and make 210whp with just quads and a tune, plus you get an extra gear!

4ag's are great motors, but I dont miss mine at all.

Re: which engine has more potential for more power?

You say a 20v can be "tuned further" than a 16v, which has been proven to not be true.

also Yoshumitspeed has posted dyno charts of basic 16v engines with just matrix garage pistons and tomei poncams making 140whp. That's more power to the wheels than any stock 20v I've ever seen.
