Anyone recognize what brand these coil overs are?
Got the car to fire on starter fluid yesterday. Think my fuel pump is dead.
Made some progress today!! Got not only a solid connection with a battery to turn on the hazards, b
Finally got my key!
Thought we would have made some progress on the car. Still on the quest for a key, but I’ll keep yo
It's happening soon...
I'm not the only person who sees the Toyota GT-86 as the sequel to the Supra as opposed to the AE86
Is it usual/smart to drill and slot the stock rotors on my car? Is it cost effective?
I definitely would not do them myself. When you see drilled and slotted rotors they are done with a machine and I'm sure they are extensively tested. Drilling your own holes will make the rotor a lot weaker and might not help with cooling. If you really want them go for DBA, AP racing, etc.
You definitely do not want to do that. The price difference is minimal and you could really compromise the safety if the rotor if you drill in the wrong place. Plus you'll spend hours measuring and drilling going through a dozen drill bits. Really you just want slotted rotors anyways. Drilled tend to crack with heavy use
I see. Thanks!
I would think that it would be more cost effective to go with a set of new rotors that are already slotted and drilled. Most standard rotors aren't manufactured to handled having that much material removed from them or go through the type of abuse that drilled/slotted rotors would experience.
I was thinking that. Thanks!
Which LS motor is the best bang for your buck if I were to swap it into my 944? #advice
Iron block would for sure be the LQ4. It's the same as an LS2 but with an iron block. The LS1 will be your best aluminum block budget option. The LS1 will be lighter and make more power but the LQ4 will be a lot cheaper and better for boost
Alright. Thanks for the input.
No problem man
I'd imagine any LS motor is a huge bank for your buck, don't have too much knowledge of all of the swaps but LS1 seems to be very commonly used in swaps. Jalopnik had an article on this, to quote them "For my selection I focused on Chevy 2500 HD Vans which can come equipped with the LQ4 6.0L V8 which is very similar to 6.0L LS2 but with an iron block. The LQ4 produces 325hp and 370 ft-lbs in this application in stock form."
What are decently priced tires (215/60R15) similar to that of Pirelli P6000s? I'd like to spend no
Federal tires are sweet and really cheap if you hit up one of their SoCal representatives on Facebook. I think they were around 100 a tire for 265 R18 sizes so yours will definitely be cheap. I think the model was the 595RSRR. Looks sweet, grips like crazy, and is cheap to boot. I'm definitely gonna go with these next. The Ventus is a great tire but I don't think it's on the same level of grip.
Hankook Ventus Evo 2 is a good performance tire for the money. It's probably going to be what I go with on my E39 for me next tire. I also like the ContiSport tire. It held up decent on the track on my 350Z and has been very comfortable on the street.
Thanks for the advice.
I'm going to be getting a porsche 944 soon. The engine isn't running right now, but it was when it
When you flush all the fluids, examine the oil. Make sure there's no water, excessive gunk, or metal flakes in it. If it is, you're in for a world of hurt if you start that motor
Thanks for the advice!
I'd check over all of the fluids. Make sure that they are all at the proper levels and that they are in good enough condition to warrant starting it up. Make sure you have fresh fuel too. If it's been sitting for awhile a fuel filter might be a good idea. Try to get a look inside the cylinders if you can to make sure there's no rust.
Ok. Thank you!
