Re: S14 with S15 block - SR20DET?

Seriously at $200 you can't go wrong. Even if you had to rebuild it you'd be well ahead. That being said, if you're looking for a cheep short cut to an SR swap and don't have the money to see it through, that might be the most expensive $200 you ever spent. Do some research here and you'll see doing...

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Also after installing Jeff's Rack&Pinion kit it needed some serious tuning. With all that immediacy at the wheel, the rest of the suspension was feeling pretty soggy. I sold a bunch of parts and upgraded my coil overs with T3 adjustable. We spent half a day on the alignment rack dialing everything i...

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Work has continued on cleaning up the wiring and for the first time sense owning the car, all the lights and gauges work properly and have continued to work for more than a week. Had to reroute the fuel level sending wire. I originally ran it along side the battery's positive power cable to the dash...

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Hey Joel, Thanks Man. I owe it to you to get out there, but I'm not driving any more. I would love to do a road trip in the car with my brother. He lives in San Mateo so maybe we could. Been exorcizing my patience dealing with the electrical under the dash. You'd be proud, huge LED floodlight and ma...

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

I've been cleaning up the rats nest behind the dash, tidying up the engine compartment, new brake and clutch master cylinder, new spark plug wires, and a fresh set of shoes. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4537/38454453881_4d1ee89d1b_z.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4554/24582934958_04fe61e774_z....

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

The Angel Has Landed! I've been so damn busy though, I haven't had time to shake it down. Right now it's running like shit so I need to figure that out first. As it's building boost under hard throttle, the waste gate starts to flutter dumping boost and falling on it's face. Sounds like a vacuum hos...

It's funny, no one told Troy vintage racing is supposed a demonstration of history. Boy takes that shit seriously. He holds lap records at Laguna, Sonoma, and Willow Springs. Thanks for the vid Joel.

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

After a solid month of playing intermediary between conflicting personalities, four different parts venders, and an impatient brother, we are picking up the 510 up from Troys Ermish's shop tomorrow. Turns out there was more to installing Icehouse's rack than anticipated. Let's just say not all SR sw...

Fantastic job on the headliner! Looks like an outside-in candy wrapper. If that make any sense.

Re: moar good videos :P

I remember watching La Mans with my uncle Doug when I was a kid 5 or 6 yrs old. The imagery and sound made a strong impression, but I couldn't remember the name, so it was lost as a memory. About 10 years ago I was flipping through the channels and saw an old Steve McQueen movies was coming on, and ...
