Re: Overheat when sitting at idle

If the fans are working as they should then it's maybe your water pump is just weak and not flowing enough.

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/24/18

Here they are. Best picture I have so far. I installed them during my lunch break yesterday at work. These depo Diamonds look/feel of much better build quality than the projectors. Already in love with them. Even without adjusting them, they are already better at night then the projectors ever were....

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/24/18

Thanks guys. Appreciate the comments. Haven't had time to install them. Tho I did have time to remove my old black plastidip off my front bumper lip. I'm never using dip again. So terrible to take off. Plus I ruined the paint underneath it to the point I'm going to repaint the lip itself. Now I know...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/24/18

And I'm back with 1 brand new part. So I've been searching for some stock headlights on ebay recently. Thought I would just buy me a set of bone stock ones because I hate my current Depo projectors. Well to my surprise I came upon a listing for Depo diamonds which have been discontinued for some tim...

Re: Turbo piping question????

I recently did this. I had my hotside pipe 90 off the turbo over and next fit the cam gears and back down to the intercooler. Well in my attempt to clean up the engine bay I decided to run it under the engine like srt4 style. So I removed both the back engine to trans brace and the oil pan to trans ...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/11/18

I agree on taking the black off too on the front fascia Yeah the worse part is breaking in a new clutch. 500 STOP AND GO MILES. Remember that. I would log the miles when I would go into town. Interstate/highway miles didn't count. Seems to take forever haha That's a good idea about tracking the mil...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/11/18

[emoji23]🤣 Alright. The black on the bumper was something I did like 2 years ago just to see how It would look. Something I always wanted to try just like the front bumper cutout with new intercooler. But yes it's going to come off possibly as soon as tomorrow. May have some time on my hands before ...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/11/18

I think it would look a lot better without the black on the lip. I'd leave the black on the bumper itself, but keep the lip red. The new intercooler looks nice. Finally someone said something about that. I've been debating removing the black. It's just old plastidip. I'm sure I could remove it easy...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/11/18

Thanks Tom. I drove the car on its first voyage to work today. She did great. No issues. I love this new clutch plus this 3.55 trans feels great compared to my old 3.94 setup. I didn't even have to go into 5th gear on my way to work. Now time to do the 500miles break in for the new clutch. So I'm go...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/3/18

And I figured the issue out. The new battery ground I had in the trunk was in a bad spot. Moved it over to where the original cable was grounded too and all is good. Got the car to start. Everything's great. Runs smooth. Idles fine. No leaks. Good to go. After I have a chance to wash her up I'll sna...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/3/18

Check your grounds... I the only ground that I can think of being maybe bad would be the one on the lower starter bolt which goes to negative cable. Maybe me painting the trans made it useless. But I didn't get paint or anything in the side the ground is on. Either way I haven't tested that ground ...

I'm like why in the world did that light up...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 6/3/18

So that's what a 7 grand tach cluster looks like. All the one's I have seen went to 8. One can only assume the SOHC cars got the 7's and the DOHC's got the 8's. Hmmm, I also noticed the cluster has stops at just over 7 thousand, and 120 mph. I'll have to look later to see if my cluster has those. Y...

Thanks, man. I've seen so many rippled fenders from half-assed rolling jobs, that I was nervous to be aggressive with it. But it turned out pretty nice, actually. I guess that's the benefit of using the proper tools. Proper tools is always a must. Back in my 2gn days I was stupid and used some vice...

Looks a lot cleaner under the hood. You should throw some gold heat shielding on the firewall to match the trans paint. I thought about adding the gold heat shielding. That or having my valve cover powder coated gold. The Red on the valve cover has seen better days. It's powdercoated but a really o...

Unless you can get some hardener and mix it with the clear, It likely won't hold up more than 3 to 5 years if you're lucky. Rattle can clear and even moderate heat just don't get along too well, unless you can get the stuff with hardener mixed in the can. I would at least get some hadener from TSC,...
