Re: Short stroke shocks front and rears alternatives.

Shortening the strut basically helps set the shock height and ride height. A 20 mm spacer is used on really short stroke/length inserts to set the shock at a height where its in an ideal usable range at static ride height. The agx that people use actually wouldnt fit in a 40 mm cut strut with a 20 m...

Re: aceforever's panda build log

The spoon inserts are basically collared washers which are designed to take out the play/gap between the mounting holes on frame/x member, and the fasteners. As result they center the fasteners within the mount holes which centers the x member, in theory... as long as frame is straight. 75w-90 is a ...

Re: aceforever's panda build log

Glad you got the suspension issues sorted. (The x nember centering issue makes me think the spoon cross member inserts might not be a bad idea.) I used conventional valvoline 75w-90 in 2 different t50s without issue. However, i might splurge and get some gl4 next time since the oem calls for it. (It...

Re: LSD question

You can also remove some of the springs so the load up / ramp rate is less aggressive.

No experience with trd, only heard theyre slightly less aggressive and stout compared to cusco/tomei/kazz /etc.

Re: 4age Hard Start, Occasionally stalls

The lack of cold start injector likely explains the excessive cranking, and also possubly the hard start. When you 'clutch in' you basically mean neutral right?

Its basically the sub harness for the ac evap and also is the idle up circuit for the fan. You also need the ac amplifier, but its probably still attached to the evap box.

Re: 4AGE not running right, help is appreciated

Did you check for cel/codes? Most seem to throw code 11/tps (unless previously serviced) which doesn't allow the ecu into diagnostic mode, and thus, you won't be able to set the timing as per the service manual. However, you can use a timing light to see if ignition is at 16* btdc - without the the ...
