Re: Phenolic Intake Manifold Spacer

Make those for a 2.3l and I'll bet you'd have some takers!

NOS Coolant Hoses

Not sure if these are trustworthy, but they are brand new! Been stored for decades, and they will not work on my car!

Re: Question installing AEM wide band 30-4110...

Air:Fuel sensors ("WBO2") work differently than conventional O2 sensors, and while many AFR sensors will simulate O2 sensor readings, they aren't exactly analogous. On primitive engine management like EEC IV it may be fine, but it also might not work as expected. That, coupled with the need to mount...

Re: Phenolic Intake Manifold Spacer

It's been nearly a month and no further issues from the XR. Seems like the original problem - stuttering and loss of power - was the VAM after all. My best theory is that two hours of high speed cruising (~90) wore a hole in the resistor and wrecked ~3000rpm forever. :D Troubleshooting the problem r...

Re: Fuel Pressure Damper Delete

I think the FPD is there for and because of the injectors... The injectors opening and closing can set up an oscillating pressure in the rail which leads to unstable pressure and potentially damage to the injectors... That's why it's located right by the rail, that's the area it's designed to work f...

Re: SHOW ME YOUR FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE!!!

I will definitely do an electric gauge. On boosted cars fuel pressure is way more dynamic than NA cars, and I think it's important to ensure boost referencing is behaving itself, which means having the gauge in the cockpit.

Re: Throttle Shaft Seals

I got my order from AVX very quickly, but then sat on the seals because of life. Today I went ahead and rebuilt the other throttle body I have using the AVX seals... here are my impressions: 1. The AVX seals are much easier to install. The rubber surround on the seal shell is much less substantial t...

Re: Stinger (?) 3" Elbow & Downpipe

I reached out to ATP to see if this: http://www.atpturbo.com/mm5/graphics/00000001/Catalog%20Images/pipe/ATP-MDP-010_450-2.jpg could be made available without the flex section. It *might* clear with their "ultimate adapter." The adapter is 2.5" and this piece is 4.5" deep and there is JUST 7" betwee...

Re: Stinger (?) 3" Elbow & Downpipe

Yeah, it's the ATP piece. Although crowded, you can sort of see how much further it'd push back the entrance to the exhaust... that plus another v-band flange is a non-starter for a stock location turbo: http://www.sacsaabs.org/sacsaabs.org/misc/xr_atpoutlet.jpg I agree (I mean, who wouldn't?) with ...

Re: Phenolic Intake Manifold Spacer

IIRC it was MC2. For whatever it's worth I drive with the EGR blocked off - a thin piece of SS sheet between the valve and flange. I was sick and tired of boost leaks from crap valves. I usually remove the sheet for smog tests, but due to lack of planning I forgot this year... and my smog report was...

Re: Stinger (?) 3" Elbow & Downpipe

I literally just got this: http://www.sacsaabs.org/sacsaabs.org/misc/85spg_atpoutlet1.jpg But I think the issue is that the extra inch that part takes sucks up valuable space you need for a smooth bend. For big pipe and a smooth bend, you need the flange to take up very little space, so the adapter+...
