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 ...

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

^hahahaha So now I have an issue with the neon. So I filled the gas tank up, went to connect the positive cable on the battery and open the drivers door to put key in and prime the line and as soon as I opened the door the boost gauge and afr gauge lit up. 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...

And finally. Another thing done that I've wanted for a long time. A regular neon center console instead of my acr one which had no arm rest, extra storage space or 3rd cup holder. Image

Re: 2002 R/T Build V2

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...

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

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...

I'm behind on having it done. I was hoping to have it done already but it's not. Not much left to do. Just a han...

I was lost the first time I took it apart a few years ago. But when you do it over a couple times it's easy. This will be my 4th time having everything apart.

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: update 5/10/18

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,...
