Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

Wow, that is a great start, and what looks to be a really cool build project. Good job on the cage. At $5k, it sure stimulates the DIY vibe. You can buy a lot of tools and raw material for that money.

Re: vw rad with L20

I try to delete the universal hose wherever possible, and am in the process of doing just that with my KA24 and VW rad. I start by bending up a coat hanger to approximate the shape and length of the existing flex hose, while also making a note of each end diameter. Then off to the parts store to req...

Re: Part identifier steering knuckle

The steering knuckle on the left is from the later model years. 70-73 if I am not mistaken.

Re: New Member - Searching for a 510 for my father

In addition to the build sheet that I have on the car, I also took notes of the phone conversation I had with the owner in August 2017. It was explained to me that the car had been stolen two owners ago, and now has a "Rebuilt Salvage" title. This, plus the price, plus the acknowledgement that it re...

Re: New Member - Searching for a 510 for my father

I am somewhat familiar with the car, as I spoke with the dealer (owner) about it more than a year ago. It was built by SOS Customs in San Diego to flip, and advertised on Youtube before Full Throttle purchased it. The owner has barely touched it, and is happy to sit on it until the cows come home an...

Re: Jordan's '72 2 door KA project

I knew that I was going to be doing some modifying as well, so I asked Jeff to send me a set of motor mounts tacked together but not finished, and managed to get the motor 0.8mm (lower) from the original height. Had to use a small shim in the process. I can always ad to the shim later if need be, bu...

Re: Jordan's '72 2 door KA project

IMG_2003.JPG Hi Jordan, I am the fellow who bought Matt's KA turbo, and I am also in the process of installing the JBC rack and pinion conversion. Matt installed the KA with a modified S13 bracket and 510 isolators on the stock (flipped) crossmember. I figured that this would be a good time to swit...

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Please put me down for a set of 4 of the Nankang AR-1, size 205/50R15. My understanding from a recent conversation with Robert from Wheelwiz is that the AR-1 tires have received a lot of positive feedback this past year, and due to the attractive price point, demand is expected to be higher in 2019....

Hello All! My name is Jason Leemans and I reside in Maple Ridge, BC. I just recently acquired Matt Saunders' turbo KA 510. I am new to this site but not to 510s, as I have owned an even 20 of them from 1982 to 1993 (buy, fix, sell to put myself through school and pay rent). That said, it has been 25...
