Re: Look What I Got: FX-GT

nice, looks very clean. How much was the total price to bring it over? Looks like a fun project.

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

Because John's kit has the best engine placement I've seen and the shifter relocation kit is adjustable. Excessive's while cheaper doesn't have any room for adjustment on engine location or shifter. SQ i think makes a decent shifter relocation kit but I haven't tried it. John's stuff is worth the ex...

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

Hey yeah, sorry I haven't had time to update/fix the photos but I will soon. As far as A/C goes, I am not running it at all. Probably easiest way would be to run the original 86 compressor and fabricate a mounting bracket if needed. If you'd want run the Beams compressor I'd imagine you'd have to do...

Re: After market hatch question

Yeah those spots should be reinforced to allow for struts and latches. For a hatch door, it would be pretty hard to break because of its position. But it all comes down to what you are going to be doing with the car. If for show go CF, if gonna see alot of track time, I'd keep it FRP personally.

Re: After market hatch question

from personal experience, fiber glass is good enough. I've had a lot of carbon fiber on previous builds and CF will eventually yellow if the car sees sunlight and will break pretty easily if not careful. CF is for show, FRP is for everything else IMO. On a side note, Seibon has some of the best CF p...

Re: Need help identifying some seats.

No fitment issues but I did have to make my own seat brackets. Mine have the mounting points at the bottom of the seat and didnt come with any rails so I took off the seat rails from SR5 seats and used those with some 1/4 steel strips.

I don't, if you are asking me. Anyhow, I just finished redoing almost all of my brake lines (minus the rear hardline) and added a hydraulic handbrake. The handbrake is setup independently to the rear wilwoods and I added a reservoir with all new lines. I will take some pictures later. Also, I would ...

Did you remove the TPS when you were cleaning the intake manifold? If you did remove the TPS, you have to calibrate it. I'd start by checking for shorts in the wiring or by making sure the contacts are clean. if that all checks out, try checking for vacuum leaks and correct vacuum routing. If all th...
