Nope, it's not hooked up yet. Done the fuel system. 42 lb injectors with a CF FMU regulating E85. Probably a week or 2 and it will actually do something for me. Doing a 16g on a pretty average log manifold. Fairly tame setup for now until I build the motor. Too bad money doesn't come all at once...

Struts won't set the level of the car. They set the damping.

The Kuhmo ASX is one of the best performance tires out right now. I just sold a set today to a guy in a 03 SRT4. Tires just dont blow on their own. You probably had a nail or slow leak int he tire that caused it to blow out. I deal with this kind of stuff everyday. (Discount Tire Co.) And people th...

to my knowledge you cannot change compression by changing out head parts. the pistons are generally the parts that decide compression. Either can. Shorter pistons will create a larger volume space when at the top of their cycle. Also, more space in the head above the cylinder will accomplish the sa...

My opinion is the the NGC is not doing anything to hurt performance. At the same time they put in the NGC, they also dropped compression from 9.6 to 9.3. That's gonna do all the same things that people are claiming the NGC is doing. Now we all know that a lower compression ratio is gonna make less p...

Camber bolts, aka crash bolts. 0 || 0 If you move either one of those bolts, or rather their orientation on the knuckle, you can move the strut on it, so if you make this instead: o || 0 Then you can move the top one, therefore giving you room to move it. The drawback is then the fact that it can sl...

I believe that the DOT rating is only a rating of freezing/boiling temp. So unless your lines are exploding, I doubt it would be worth it.

OK, all done. For future knowledge, if you have 4 front bushings or cushions, feel free to put em in the back. They probably won't last nearly as long, but will hold the bar perfectly in place. Also, put the slots in them up, toward the frame, or they won't slide into the bracket right, and you'll j...

OK, the front one is on just fine and peachy. I already have KYB struts with tabs, so that's not a problem. I've got the rear endlinks, mounting brackets, bolts, and bar.

Sway bar bushings

I'm putting SRT front and rear sways on my base neon. (04) I have all the hardware, except the bushings that go in the mounting brackets. Each bar has 1 on it. Anyone know if I will mess things up by using my existing front 2 brackets on the new front, and then use the mismatched front/rear on the r...

From my understanding, the SAFC doesn't work well with turbo cars. Just doesn't handle the higher curves well. The RRFPR is going to be the easiest way to go, as I hear it's a pain in the neck to get the MS to work everything correctly. A lot of people choose MS for higher boost levels though, as it...

You nailed it right on the head. Think Inter - cooler. Like inter - connect. It's between the 2 thingies we call a turbo and an engine. Check out some people's piping some time, and you'll see you're absolutely correct.

Forged internals

I'm getting confused here. To swap out pistons and rods to something that can handle more boost, how hard is this? A friend tells me to pull the motor and send it to a machine shop. And then I see people on here saying pull the oil pan and slide em in. Can someone clarify? My plan is a hahn stage 2,...

16788 miles, and I'm having slippage. It's not horrible, but once the car is fully warm, I can't floor it in either 4th or 5th. I'm planning a PT transplant. I blame it on my tendency to keep the car from rolling back at stoplights with the clutch instead of the brake.
