Re: 88 XR4TI 2JZ Swap

Interesting swap. From that picture it looks like radiator support mods may be in order for the 2jz. Now that BMW swap does interest me a bit.

Re: Idea for helping owners

While most of us present owners do enjoy wrenching on our own cars there are owners out there that just plain enjoy driving them. I agree with above and feel there is a need to help the owners that don't wrench. A good list of reputable mechanics that have been vetted by present owners would be a go...

Re: turbo questions

Don't forget to check the pcv valve too. Very common and simple issue to correct.

Re: Brake line bulkhead fitting

I think I'm going to connect the brake lines inside of where the old bulkhead fitting was clipped then hose clamp some rubber tubing on either side of the hex so it is captured inside of the plate. I did this with a bit of a twist. Place and appropriately sized fender washer between the hardline tu...

Re: Where'd you mount your MegaSqirt?

Mine is mounted below the Glove box on a plate. The plate gets attached via the 2 6mm bolts at the bottom of the dash. The factory amp location is a good one and i tried there. Only issue with that is you need a right angle DB backshell in order to fit the MS behind the factory plate. If you do this...

Re: Inner Tierod ends replacement

Yes this can be done without taking the rack out. If they don't have wrench flats cast in just use channel locks or a pipe wrench on the socket part to unthread from the rack.

Re: Loss of front and rear turn Signals

Re: Replacement for PBR phenolic pistons

So Rock Auto shows they have these in stock "99 - '04 Land Rover Discovery" for ~$10 each. Do you have any on order yet? Last spring one of my PBR's locked up I removed the pistons and measured them. They were larger on the front side where they would be external or right near the bore. These were o...

Re: 60-1 vs HY35

With my hy35 boost can be at 21psi by 3500 rpm. I added in electronic boost control this past rear and really got it tuned which helped. The electronic throttle based boost control will let you vary your power output with your right foot instead of the all or nothing with a gillis type valve. Overal...
