Re: NVH Issues

Ok this is a little embarrassing but I was not calculating the operating angles correctly. Found a good online calculator here - http://spicerparts.com/calculators/driveline-operating-angle-calculator. Bottom line is that my operating angles aren't as bad as I originally thought. But it does still s...

Re: NVH Issues

Worked on this again yesterday (took day off) and really didn't get anywhere. Dropped the driveshaft this time and fully supported the rear wheels so that there was no deflection. Measured the diff (0.9 degrees) and the rear of tranny (3.8 degrees). Clearly, things need to be adjusted. Based on the ...

Re: The Red Baron

Bryon - Your intake look really nice. Very impressed with the quality. If I hadn't stumbled across this one for a screaming deal, I would definitely be in the market for one of yours. So far I can't tell the difference on the aluminum driveshaft at all, which is what I expected. The theory is becaus...

Re: The Red Baron

Will be using a Ray Reed Racing manifold which is basically an early copy of a Datsun Comp intake. Dave Rebello looked at it and thought it would be fine. Yeah thinking my horsepower will be about the same as yours. Rebello will be dynoing it and then I will get the exhaust built and then dyno it ag...

Re: The Red Baron

Also picked up the following items to provide more information on the engine and electrical. Used Speedhut and ordered gauges that matched up best to the OEM look. Similar font, orange needles, and chrome centers. http://i.imgur.com/yl3Pjg3.jpg Already have some bumpsteer spacers but will be selling...

Re: The Red Baron

In preparation for the new 2360cc motor, I had the 44mm Mikunis I purchased about a year ago rebuilt. Done by Dave Premo who is very well known in the Roadster community and organizes the Mt Shasta show (didn't even know that still happened). Dave is also the West Coast distributor for Mikuni so kno...

Re: The Red Baron

Installed the aluminum driveshaft a few ago. With this type of upgrade, it was primarily done for the reason that I needed a shortened driveshaft anyways for the 240SX transmission and the upgrade to the aluminum was only $100 extra. The larger diameter over a stock steel one and the lighter weight ...

Re: Road & Track: why stiff springs = less grip

This has been my experience as well. Tracked an E36 M3 with some well-known coilovers and any bump in the corners unsettled the car immediately. Went down to some progressive H&R springs that were only about 20% stiffer than stock and some well-matched Konis and the car performed beautifully at ...

Re: License Plate Attachment

All good options! Looks like either going for the stainless steel or plastic make the most sense. I'll decide and post up some pics for future reference.

Re: WTB Tail light harness NOS

Do you need the housing, chrome and lenses also? I have a supplier who does the entire kit with harness for $399 AUS. It's repop but very good quality.

License Plate Attachment

I'm not a big fan of how the previous owner bolted on the rear license plate using allen screws, etc and would like to see what everyone else is doing. Photobucket is clearly not working and it's likely that most of those pics will never be reposted. I'm using Imgur and it is still fine for forum po...

Re: CV Failure

So they are not from Les Collins but he confirmed with me that this company was THE ONE to get it from and I highly respect his recommendations. And yes - absolutely you are welcome to come check them out once I have installed them and at least given them a test drive or two. Don't want to recommend...

Re: CV Failure

So he did ask to confirm that the STI diff output with 27 splines and mentioned that they also did it using 25 splines axles. Is the stock R180 25 splines?

Re: CV Failure

Alright - have a contact in Australia who has been working with 1600/510s for 35 years and has designed a CV conversion kit using only Nissan products. Will work perfectly with a Subaru STI differential (27 splines). No custom adapters or billet stub axles or Porsche/EMPI CVs. He gets the parts from...
