Hey everyone!

What's up guys, haven't been on much the last few months. What's new around here? My PC took a crap awhile back and I'm finally getting around to diagnosing it. Been very busy, started a new job and it's been taking a lot of my time and energy. I now have a company van and gas card, so I went ahead ...

D2 coils, 12k fronts and 10k rears -2.5 degrees camber in the front -2 degrees camber in the rear How did you get so much camber on a neon? ^Slotted strut clevis and camber plates I would assume. I could probably get +/- 4 degrees out of my setup if I slammed the adjustments one way or the other. O...

Yeah if you're getting any of the cam codes its almost guaranteed to be the sensor itself. After resetting my battery mine has been driving fine with no CEL or anything, but then again I only drive the car once a week or so. Sometimes they fail once and are good for weeks before a repeat, sometimes ...

Well what do you know, now MY car is throwing 0340 again, and I'm at 58k. Wow it's like clockwork. That's two autozone sensors failed on two diff cars in almost the exact same amount of mileage. I think it's safe to say they're junk and it's no coincidence. Back to the drawing board.

Ah you left that out. The diff changes everything, it's almost certainly an install problem. As stated above the M1 oil could not have caused failure in that amount of time, even if it was the wrong stuff. A few people have been running it for years with no sign of issue. Did you open the trans up a...

The PT MTX can't hurt with the lighter flywheel. :lol: It is the MTX I wish I had. That .72 fifth is basically equal to my 3.55 .81 fifth. So overall, highway fuel mileage wouldn't change. My bad, mine is an .81 5th, I got them mixed up again! It's insane compared to the 3.55 .72 it had before. Whe...

The flywheel slows down a lot quicker during shifts, due to less inertia, so I have to shift quicker in some gears, especially 4-5 since I have the 0.72 5th gear 3.94. It lets you know when you don't shift accurately (i.e. match wheel speed as the revs drop during a shift). Hard to say how much acce...

^ 1st Gen springs aren't exactly a good recommendation when trying to increase ride quality... The amount of time spent on the bump stops would be ridiculous. Would be like riding a jackhammer.

Do it right or don't do it at all.

The test you heard of is: On an incline, put the car in 5th and attempt to drive forward (as if in 1st). A slipping clutch will rev to the sky, because it cannot hold the engines power to move the wheels due to the massive gear reduction in 5th gear. An excessively slipping disc will do this in othe...

I have a Spec Stage 1 clutch and the pedal feel is perfect IMO. Stiffer than stock, but nothing like a typical performance clutch.
