Re: Chris' 72 Project

It seems to be just enough of a load to bog down the alternator at my low idle speed. I need to get a VAT40 on this thing and check with the incandescent and the LED. your alt may not be producing full voltage at low RPM's... what does it do w/the HL on too? LED's draw significantly less power! So ...

Re: Chris' 72 Project

Ok, I'm going to try and keep this linear, but I'm working on a few little projects on the car so I hope this thread doesn't get too crazy. So is this right?! By my calculations using the ohms law diagram I figured that the running lights with the brake lights on, not counting the headlights, draws ...

Re: TURBO Q & A FORUM

Actually, I would use 6" sewer pipe....that way it will take a week to build boost...and you will not scare yourself..... I have always felt, that keeping the piping about the same size, just keeps the volume to be pressurized as minimal as possible. I use the 2" out of my turbo to the intercooler,...

Re: TURBO Q & A FORUM

Well I think I almost have all the parts for my turbo setup. My question is about intercooler piping. I have some aluminum 4" piping I was going to use, but then I realized the turbo output is about 2 inches and throttle boddy is about 3 inches. Should I really use a big diameter pipe and use a redu...

Re: Brake Indicator Switch and Brake System Balance

Review Pascal's law. Also, consider that pressure is a resistance to flow. Lastly, try not to confuse pressure and force. From Wiki: Pascal's law: Pressure on a confined fluid is transmitted undiminished and acts with equal force on equal areas and at 90 degrees to the container wall. This is what ...

Re: Brake Indicator Switch and Brake System Balance

I don't think so, but my understanding of fluid mechanics if pretty limited. I know if you restrict the flow of fluid the pressure decreases (with an increase in fluid speed due to the restriction)...Bernoulli's principle I think. I'm not sure about after the fluid passes through the restriction, t...

Re: Brake Indicator Switch and Brake System Balance

Thanks, Matt. You explained it better than I could. My side point I was trying to make was that if, for example sake, the front brake lines were 1 inch in diameter and the rear brake lines were .1 inch in diameter, if all for calipers and rotors were the same then there would be the same braking for...

Re: Wiring tips/Online resources?

.8 volt drop on the ground side (alternator to neg battery terminal) before the BC ground system. .4 afterwards. Battery has a very solid ground. Engine is now grounded very well. Wanna get rid of the remaining .4 :?

Wiring tips/Online resources?

Ok, so I'm going through my electrical system and trying to finalize all my connections and routing. I original setup up my EFI, trunk mount battery, EDIS, power door locks....etc. with the intent of "rearranging" things when I had pretty much everything in the car. I install a Buddy Club condenser ...

WTB Passenger Seat Belt or set

Hey guys,

I'm in need of the complete 3 piece front passenger 510 seat belt. I only need the right side, but would be interested in the set if you don't want to split them up. I'm in 97202.

Let me know what you got! :)

Re: 200mm 6 bolt flywheel vs 225mm 6 bolt flywheel?

Hey Jason,

Sounds like you already got one. What size did you get? Not sure what motor your hooking it up to but the 200mm is sweet because of the roadster plate. Hope you ended up with the 200 8)
