Yep, Pure Tuning. I don't really have a time. I'm taking the day off so Keith can just have it as long as he needs it.

I'm still waiting on that Grimmspeed boost solenoid (I think it's legal for *SP). So if I don't have it before then I'll need to cancel.

My little thread is taking off........

Hmmm... I haven't really dug into the *SP rules enough to know, but it would surprise me at all if it was.

Greg...I must say...it looks mean, aggressive, and down to the business at hand...In otherwords....Great......have you had a chance to put it on the scales yet????

I like what you did....ESP will be great to watch with you and Karen running the 'right' drivetrain.....you should see about 260 hp...and well over 300 torque for your beast...can't wait till you get it sorted..and it starts putting on camaros, firebirds, and mustangs...as part of the fighter "Kills" lol...

enjoy the off corner torque...

You should sign up at forced4s.com . . . It is a somewhat local (Cleveland) forced induction car club that we started. We just started it in November, but I would love to see someone with your background on there.

All I can say about your wheels/tires is Looks nasty and god how that thing is going to be on the track!!! I`m going to need a ride sometime this summer maybe!!!?

Thanks..... No scales yet but as I said I can only hope for my STX weight of 2900 flat. There are things I could do to reduce that, but $$$$$$$$$

I had a trick up my sleeve that the latest fastrack knocked out. Oh,well I'll have to fight them with a turbo that falls on it's face at ~ 4000 rpms. I think it's doable.

I'm sorry but it's doubtful this year. I run a pretty full plate with all the nwor locals and my 3 or 4 national events + nationals. I used to do 25 events + a year, I've toned that down to keep the peace at home. I'm lucky to have awesome sites in the backyard.

Verdict is in on the diff! Pull it and double check everything. This will be my Friday night project.

I put a deposit on 18x10 Rotas SVN Rs +30 offset. They might come in May. I didn't know that there were used 18x10s on the market.

What's the offset on those grids?
I may be thinking of this backwards, but. With a +35 offset, and no spacers, I only have about 1/4" between the shock collar and the tire in the rear. In the front I have ~ 7/16" to the shock body because the collar sits above the tire.

This is with zzyzx's which may have a bit more clearence do to the lower mounts. (he made different style mounts I'm not sure which style I have) They could be identical to stock. :shrug:

I would think you may end up with spacers, especially in the back. Perhaps you already know this.

Rears tires (sometimes) rubbed on the inside fender well and trailing arm. Rear fenders are rolled. Picture of rubbage is in that album. I was running RCE Tarmac 2s w/ 500lb/in front 400lb/in rear with stock swaybars.

Good to know. I had inside strut clearance issues w/ my 17x8.5" +48 SSRs w/ 275 A6. In the front I was rubbing against the collar, so I had to dial max positive camber using the factory bolt and get all of my negative camber through the plates. In the rear the tire would rub the trailing arm under deflection otherwise I had a few mm.

I have RCE Tarmac 2s. I've heard the zzyzx's have the best clearance due to their design. I was eyeing their EM Sport coilovers but I didn't get in on the 1st run. I imagine you have their competition coilovers?

I thought lower offset moved the wheel out and away from the struts. I hope so because that's one of the reasons I went with the +30 SVN Rs over the +35 DPTs.

I need to get my ARP wheel studs installed so I can run spacers if required. Installation is a bit beyond my mechanical skills.

Yes, I have the competition version of the zzyzx's.

The front studs are very, very easy to change. An impact makes it easier (less ratchet turning) to draw the new ones in, but is not necessary. The rears take a bit more time. I think I'm going to change my rears maybe I'll do the step by step in this thread.

I'll concede and say you're right on the offset. +30 should push the inside of the wheel further away from the chassis than +35. I'm sure a trip to the tire and wheel forum would clear it up, for me at least.

You may not need longer studs for any spacer under 10mm.

That would be cool. I have 75K miles on the car. I wonder how my bearings are doing. So far I'm on the original clutch and bearings w/ no problems.

I think so, I'll double check. Stock offset is for the 17x7 wheel was +55.

With a 5mm spacer I only got something like 6-7? turns of engagement. I did not feel comfortable running it.

A big thanks to storm for dropping by today.

It appears the diff was fine and I have some crazy, weird boost related noise. I'm not sure if it's a leak or perhaps the turbo itself.

I guess we'll see.

I swear that the noise was not me holding back the inner child whenever the motor entered boost......I swear!

Someone didn't want to remove the hood and strap a passenger to the roof to watch for a source of the noise......but it was a little chilly for that anyway...... I give it 5-10minutes on the rollers and the source will be found. I hope it's a cheap fix!!!

My impressions: Good god this thing is going to be awesome!!! Greg's done an excellent job on the install and overall build thus far. I approve with 2 thumbs up!!

In an effort to rule out the large TMIC I put the factory one on this morning. I haven't driven it yet so I'm not sure. I hope it's the Y-pipe or BOV that was leaking. The factory one will also make it easier to work around when it's on the dyno, in case it's still there when I go for a drive later.


We'll see.
