Re: Muffler selection. Magic solution needed.

Well the question of the day relates to how to keep me quiet. What I'm looking for is the answer to the eternal question, "If I wanted to make carburetor induction sucking noise the loudest thing I hear, and I'm not interested in wringing every HP out of the motor, what muffler wouild you choo...

'69 heater core, lower grill trim, Grab Bag

Greetings 510 Realm! I found I never sold off the '69 heater core, as I just found it on the shelf in the garage.

Re: 210 A87 U60 cylinder heads

Valves readily available. What to build and what to use it on depends on your goals. You'd want to verify whatever head you want to put money into is sound, flat, and true. THEN, calculate the chamber size to plan out a compression ratio, all before spending money. Easy to discuss stock heads. Once ...

Re: Vg33 wiring

Apropo of nothing specific to your question, but I ran a '95 KA24DE on an auto ECU and harness even though I had a manual trans. Wiring also wanted the crank position sensor mounted in the bellhousing, which I did not have hooked up either. No problems, ran great.

Re: WARNING about Hagerty insurance

Old insurance article I wrote for DQ covered this aspect of specialty-car insurance (Hagerty) vs. regular-car insurance (AAA, State Farm, etc.). You daily your car, Hagerty is not the right policy for you.

Re: Driveshaft length

Different shops like different measurements. Call your shop and ask how they want the measurement taken.

Re: L18 questions

OP, get your hands on a copy of the How To Hotrod book. All the L16/L18 hot-rodding tips you could want. At least give you a good base. People like Rebello and Troy have taken the game on, but at a cost of cubic dollars.

Digital copy of HtH is up at The 510 Archives.

Re: CV Failure

So...these kits are adapters/CVs/axles. If the CVs are poor and the rest of the bits are in good condition, why not just get some better CVs? They're cheap, compared to getting a whole new kit. Ran the Lobro parts (CVs and boots) with Matt's v1 adapters, no gaskets for the boots, never had grease es...

Re: WTB L-16 Lower Alternator mount

Definitely drill the mount to accept a 10mm through-bolt for the alternator. The stock 8mm bolt is well known to snap from the loads. The OP appears to be saying that the mount he has takes 10mm bolts to the block, however. I don't recall this being on L20Bs I've had more recently, but then it's bee...

Re: 1971 2 Door 70s build

Did the Wilwood setup come from T3 as well, or did you DIY a bracket/rotor swap?
