But with gauges and 8 psi u will be fine with about 220-250 hp and realible motor.
Customtacos has a lot of threads about turbo tacos
And lc engineering
Those are the sites to get stuff.
What is the story behind this, i see the thumbnail all the time on youtube, but it's always bullshit and not actually in the video. I feel like that can't be a real crash.
Don't feel like making this into a paragraph so heres some fully sick -'s
-attempt to park on curb at wawa
-lady comes out while im bouncing off the curb in 4lo
-stop while she walks by
-shes getting something from her pleb tier dodge dakota
-i get on the curb finally
"IS THERE A REASON YURRR ON THE KERRRB?
-It's a jeep thing....
-guy comes out who works at wawa
"hey buddy, can you move your tru-
-lady comes out
-as she backs out i bounce off of dat rev limiter because lol environment
-brother comes to truck from inside wawa
-tells me some lady came in screaming "THERES SOME ASSHOLE OUT HERE PARKED ON THE SIDE WAHHHLK"
-guy goes out and comes back in "actually lady, he was pretty nice"
i don't understand a word of what you typed
Parked on curb, some lady didn't think he should be parking in the parking lot. She went and bitched to someone inside the store, and when the guy came out and asked him to move, he did. She came back out and he rev'd his engine as she walked by, so she went back in the store and bitched again. Or something.
some cunt had a stick up her arse and got VERY upset that i put my front tires up on the curb.
I did the natural thing when she left the store and reved the fuck out of my engine.
My crank and two rods decided they wanted to see the sun.
They did... at the racetrack
110$ of towing later it is sitting at home with me in despair because of low fund and a engine swap on my mind
I did all the paperwork today, $121 in fees and tax damn. Gotta pay smog test fees of about $60 which the 240 passed with flying colors. But the car is in working condition, just the basics for normal and safe operation for now, thanks to the craftsmanship of my mechanic. Maybe later I can order some cheapo dish wheel and new shifter knob. Get bank then start adding performance mods like coilovers and the like
Edited: Man I want another Audi badly.
Just take engine out of,swap for 2.7T twin Turbo, install rollcage, and go drive it reckless.
Upside to that would be spair engine for my DD and Spare interior parts ( alwase need cupholders).
The driver that finds the best line is almost somewhat comparable to having the equivalent engine output.
One of the collar I used to clamp my ic piping in place was stripped and popped on the highway, this being a maf car, the ecu went into limp mode (aka 100%duty cycle on the injectors and retard the timing the most it can) but I coudnt pull over because I was in a construction zone and there was no where to stop, I limped it half a Kilometer but I fixed it and didn't boosted until the track (by the time I found a collar for it).
but my bet is: fuel got in the oil, fuel as you know is a terrible lubricant. That+ a long stroke engine with incredible pistons speed= receipe for rodknock and block breaker
Edit: my old folks gave me a subwoofer with a amp for it for my birthday (1st of may) but I guess now they'll be useless for a while... Until I can sort this situation
I will probably end up going 2jz... but that ain't cheap (even if the jayz is bone stock)
Well, good luck. I'm about to FINALLY finish my boost project on the Civic, putting the cylinder head on tomorrow, putting new CV shaft in today, Sunday I'm pulling the motor for new flywheel/clutch/PP, and pulling front end apart for charge piping.
I hope you go 2JZ. It won't be cheap but it'll be awesome. I know it.
My ultimate plan is to eventually go 4G63T with my Civic, but I need to find me a FWD 4G63 Eclipse for everything I need (Motor, transaxle, shifter and linkage). I can't seem to find one cheap. I wouldn't even need a clean one, a totalled one would be fine.
I have 6 days of school left, fuck can it just be over? It's really hard work sleeping in all of my classes
Just bought a roof rack for my car. Now to just get a roof box.
I must be the only 20 year old that owns a family car/MPV with a roof box
Next stop... Emmen!
I would do that but I need to carry multiple bags and things, waterproofed. :o
Love the car, By the way. - Makes me sorta miss the 740 Estate we had. Thirsty bugger though.
on the "it wont be cheap" that's the main concern, seeing as I don't have money nor a job...college on strike could end at anytime, I have a internship to do and no one want to take me.
edit: the only plan that could bail me out of that situation imply me selling my setup.
PM me for price and details. Selling my good engine too
It's not all that bad though. I saw a limo try to go over the massive speedbump at the McDonalds here and the thing scraped the ENTIRE way. BADLY.
I wish I could of seen the driver's face. He should of realized that taking a limo over that massive speed-bump was a dumb idea.
What do you guys think? Some guy might want to trade this for my '93 Prelude
I'm wary, but I'm willing to atleast meet with the guy and see what he wants. He says he needs to get a car that doesn't get so much attention from the police, which is completely understandable. My friend gets pulled over every night his car is on the road,
and he doesn't even do anything wrong.
My drive way sucks dick cause its angled so steep that any weight in older cars it will scrape. Any newer cars it will scrape. Just so the sidewalk is flat with the rest of the street.
Tukimoshi, that's a nice RX7 but think of the costs. High mileage car, repairs and maintenance; lotsa damage like door lock and side panel. My 240 is pretty cheap in parts but it still cost me a grand and more to fix, what more a rotary?
If you can go through with money I'd say that's a good deal to trade a lude for a braap
I guess I'm really stuck between whether this RX7 is worth it, or whether I should just hold out until I can get a 240
I wish I had $2000 right now. :(
'78 Concord AMX on Craigslist
those rims, man
If you don't have to spend any money on the trade and it's as simple as giving your Prelude, I'd say go for it.
Make sure you do your research first and see if he isn't trying to give away his lemon. The engine doesnt look like it's been abused, but its hard to tell from just looks
But no really, good luck.
I've never had bad luck with Honda stuff, I always have spares though. I have a D16Z6 block kicking around if I punch a hole in this D16A6 one.
Also tried to flip turbo around and keep full size rad:
It ended up hitting the entire side of the cold side
I trimmed and trimmed the Z6 block for a mockup but it just wouldn't go.
So I shelled out some money and bought an aluminum half rad and some other bits as well. I may as well go a little big if I'm going through this trouble
Might have found myself a 2jzgte from those nasty jdm fuckers (they're all stealing scum around here) for 1200$
add 350 for the correct bellhousing
150 for the correct flywheel
add 150 for the correct motor mount
200 for a IC. and then I got to find piping for the intercooler and make a decend downpipe...
well, calling my old job tomorrow and gonna ask if they still have room for me NOW (even if it was booring as fuck)... I need dah money
Also, why not go 1JZ? I'd think 1JZ engines are a little cheaper to come by and they're not terrible at all. And they pretty much require all the 2JZ stuff you'd buy anyways, I think if you could save on the engine a little I would. Hell, 1JZ's aren't even that much lesser of an engine, they only flow slightly less (Stock 2JZ head flows ~238in/154ex at .400, 1JZ head flows ~215in/133ex with identical lift) and despite it being .5 liters less in displacement they still put out tons of ponies and hold boost well (Hell, they're a Toyota JZ block).
In most cases, 1JZ costs half of what a 2JZ costs. *shrug* That's the way I'd go if I could find a cheap 1JZ.
...dude put a 4age in it lolo
a BPU+ on a 1jzgte with stock twins will net you 300rwhp (been documented and saw it on a bunch of car around here), while a bpu+ on stock twins on a 2jz will net you 390rwhp.
I'm willing to pay 300$ less for the engine to have 90rwhp more in the end ;)
I have been around mk3 supras for a while, I know what Jz swap involve, dont worry
I know you know what they involve. Wasn't knocking you.
I was just saying, a 1JZ pretty much anywhere in the world besides where you live apparently is about half the cost of a 2JZ.
2JZ is definitely the way to go for power, but meh.
