Re: Dream build | 71 4dr SR20VE ITB's work in progress

thanks guys, I'm Thinking of maybe doing an exposed oil cooler with the nice braided hoses? I have a wider pair of Xr-4's for the rear, just need tires since the 195's rubbed the inner lip on the rear door sill. Just I'm not sure if the xr-4's have that wow factor I'm after unless I powdercoat or so...

It's just hard to do at this stage of life with my young kids and wife working too. We have a packed schedule pretty much all the time.

Dream build | 71 4dr SR20VE ITB's work in progress

Hello realm! I know most of you know of my ride. But for those who don't, I made a little video of her. Loads of progress from the years with the previous few owners who got her to a great point and now I'm happy to be the new owner to finish her up. This is my 2nd dime, my first one was in the midd...

Newer clip in R160/R180 axle stub ?

Hey guys, so..... Anyone know the spline count on a newer r160 axle stubs and is it the same as the sti's R180? I just brought the drive shaft shops cv conversion kit but it comes with r180 slip in axle stubs(c clips). This would be nice if the sti's came in a 4.11 or 4.38. Rt now I'm running a r160...

Re: Weird noise coming from coilovers??

I'm thinking balljoint but.... after thinking about this, I might have a problem of how my top hat/washers/bearings sit or seat into the bottom of my camber plates(that are older...late 90's maybe.). I had to remove my new 1.25" rca's to make clearance for my new 15x8 wheels yesterday, The stee...

Re: Weird noise coming from coilovers??

You can also try jacking up the front wheel via the LCA to keep the car's weight on the corner, then get under it and look around, rotate the wheel to make sure everything's smooth, etc. Yeah, did that, and everything turns smooth, no play except the bad ball joint, maybe I just answered my own que...

Re: Weird noise coming from coilovers??

I know it's def not the tire rubbing, it's sounds metallic for sure.... I will try to have a friend kneel down in the area where I think it's coming from. I had 15x6's now 15x8's and its doing the same noise. I'm not sure if the car did this before I redid the suspension since the first time I drove...

Re: Wheel fitment help for "1off" flared 510...

I know this car :P It appears that the previous owner rolled out the existing fender lip and welded in metal to make it complete. I don't think any additional metal was added to make the lip protrude more so I would say the lip extends about 3/4"- 1" beyond the stock location. Right, than...

Re: Wheel fitment help for "1off" flared 510...

whenI measured, to to edge of the flare and the shock, it was 11"s than about 3"s up, I see the inner fender "skin" which measured 9 1/4"s. Not sure if it was changed or altered since this is the only 510 I've owned anf there are none around to verify.
