Re: Tall driver in a xr4ti????

Well I was going to reply but my measly little 6 foot @ 210 doesn't seem to come close to the giants that can fit in their XR's. :headbang

Re: Stripped spark plug hole

Re: Stripped spark plug hole

I certainly wouldn't use a helicoil for a spark plug fix. Only thing i'd trust is a time-sert. Unfortunately the kits aren't the cheapest things in the world, but its cheaper than a new head. I would try putting the correct size tap down the hole first though to clean up the threads. Just be sure to...

Seattle Automotive is one of the parts distributors we use at the shop I work at and every once in a while they throw big parties for all the shops that buy parts through them. Well this year they decided to have a big banquet at the Lemay car museum in Tacoma, WA. Normally my boss would have gone w...

It's a stock grill that was cut by hand

Re: Xr runs better with no VAM, then with it???

Is it just me or if something runs better with a component unplugged, I typically will throw a known good one at it and see if it improves.
