What's Facebook?

Same went the local thread when I was in Jacksonville.

I prefer the forum format to social networking. Been on the interwebs for a long time and never did get into the whole FB thing.



I'll be stopping by homedepot today to pick up some brass fittings for my crankcase ventilation.

Just need to torque the downpipe down, mount the air oil separator and run its lines then I should be able to fire it up.

Thinking about picking up a silicone elbow to connect the TB straight to the turbo for startup. Will be easier to inspect for leaks that way.

Don't think I'll be driving it to work tomorrow though. Need to put the hood on, torque the wheels down, install the TMIC, clean out all the parts I have been storing in it and install the seat and harness still. Oh..and get rid of the countless spiders that are undoubtedly living in the trunk and cabin.

Since we have a 3 day this weekend I will get all that taken care of then. Perhaps I'll plastidip it too, since I have about a galon of dip. It would be good practice for the impending MR2 paint job. Need to get the thinner:dip ratio right and my gun dialed in.

Boycott facebook! Jerks.

49 miles on the motor :discomonkey:

Broke down on centerville this morning. I was the guy holding everyone up at a stop light ~_~
I think I just didn't give it enough gas(not used to the LW FW) and it died. Stubborn me was convinced my OEM battery would take a charge eventually - wrong. Wouldn't start. Pushed it to a gas station and bought an optima yellow top at auto$one.



HEY!
Would you guys(and gals) be interested in having STi Mikey take a trip down here for some tuning fun?
Once my motor is broken in I plan to have him tune it in person. Instead of making the trip up to CT where I'd be obligated to see my family as well I want to bring him down here.
He'd only need a few people to break even on his expenses.

He came down to Jax a bunch of times, really great guy!

Not sure how the lovely VA state police would appreciate road tunes but I do live down Centerville Turnpike right near BFE and 25 minutes from NC. Plus there's a few shops with AWD dynos here but that'd add cost and I prefer road tunes.

Not sure how much he would charge for a full tune or adjustment nor do I want our resident MAIC Moderator to go full Nazi on me. I can let you know how much he charged last time(in Jax) via PM though.

Someone link this on FB if you could. .

What are your mods?

Biggest tip = know you're class before you show up!


Also, go sllloooow on the first run. It's super hard to visualize a course by walking it of you've never actually autocrossed before.

Don't bother messing with tire pressure and any camber adjustments between runs unless it's reeeally off (which that should be addressed before you show up!) Focus on cooling your car down (especially if it's anything like today was)

inspecting tires for chunking or any other saftey issues

Make sure your PS pump isn't foaming at the mouth and also any oil or coolant leaks (unless you don't take care of your car.. at all.. this should not be something to worry about but always good to look for! )

Bring a cooler with food and water.

Buy/borrow/rent a gopro if you want and have FUN!!

Sorry for the rambling, unorganized information. I had a long day.

Lmfao, boycott FB.. Sucks that your old bat **** the bed instead of the battery keeping up and alive. Keep those miles ticking.!!. Pm how much a tune would be. Im getn a new fuel pump this fri, and only need my twin scroll 18G or 20G(funds are soooo close) and to throw my fuel rails and 740's on.

I am interested in that tuning idea of yours. I have a 3 port solenoid that's been sitting in my garage for about a year now because I don't know how to adjust my stage 2 tune for it.

If you could, I'd appreciate it if you could send me a PM and tell me more about it.

Thanks!

Look at where you will be in about 2 seconds, not where you are now.

Mikey will be here the 19th but only has time to tune me and 2 other cars. $300 for a road tune. He will make changes to your tune if you add other mods or just want it adjusted via email as well (cost of that will depend on changes).
If you have something simple or just want him to check out your tune he will charge accordingly (not the full 300).

Not sure why he can't stay for a longer period but if there's enough interest he would definitely make a trip down again.

There are two different FB pages that pop up if you search for Cars & Coffee Virginia Beach. This one doesn't say anything useful. The better one to visit is this one. There's also info at http://www.carsandcoffeevirginiabeach.com/.

I've only been out there once, shortly after I moved down here last fall. I might head over there tomorrow morning with my CTS-V.

Anyone in the area have, or know someone who has, an '01-04 Outback with the EZ30 6-cyl? I'd like to look one over so I can check out some random stuff associated with my swap. This would necessitate removing the engine cover (at the very least), so it would be nice if the car's owner was comfortable with that.

I want to figure out the best way to do the A/C system. If it looks like the '01-04 EZ30 hard lines and hoses could be made to fit my '97 engine bay, then I'll buy an '01-04 condenser and go that route. The other option would be to modify the '01-04 hoses to mate up to the '97 condenser.

The course on the hovercraft ramp is spread out, so take your time walking through and scope out each corner. Walk the course at least 3 times before the novice walk. Brake hard & accelerate early!

Also, does anyone here have an Invidia N-1 dual exit on a hatch? I really want to hear one before I get too excited about buying one.

I have the ac removed from my 07.
The condenser and lines are not useable but the compressor should be finw. If you need it let me know!
Just taking up space here.

It's more so my knee. Engagement point is fairly high up and only about a centimeter of pedal travel.
Which is great for shifting quickly / aggressively but not my morning commute.

The LW flywheel actually makes it easier to drive. Way less chatter, smoother engagement but also a bit easier to let the revs fall enough to stall it out.

The spec stage 3+ is a hell of a clutch. It has more clamping force than their stage 4 and is rated for about the same torque as their unsprung unit.

Wish I made a video of the rear diff clunk during hard shifts after the 6 speed swap + before Unabomber's sexy rear end.

Anyone suggest a shop in the area that carries this kind (or similar) of hose?

I have not.

Going to check out B&B Hose and rubber in Chesapeake since they're about 20 minutes from my house.

Thanks though!

Mr2's are for old people... who don't like Facebook.

I'm surprised to see this thread is still alive and well. I never have time for forums anymore, but it's good to see it still lives on.
