the heaviest part of the those is the stock Jhooks. i came up with something better anyway. carbon strap, machined base. haven't made one yet tho. i'm doing other things. you're right though, i focused improperly on them. mainly cause i wanted a couple... hehe. believe it or not my math is kinda weak...

re: IAG/Tom, i dont care either way, but remember, nasioc likes to delete posts and threads... they've deleted thousands of my own posts. that i know of.

Wait, let me get this straight... So now you are not even sure if IAG has done anything wrong yet you have no problems hurling slander? Put yourself in the shoes of a small business owner who is trying to grow it.

IAG, it was refreshing to read a down to earth post like yours and not some politically correct version of your response. Of course, I would never let you tune my car...

Oil squirters for the win. If it is possible run them. It is a good extra insurance, for keeping expensive parts from failing possibly causing other expensive problems. My $.02

In case anyone was wondering, my oil pressure problem seems to be a leaky sending unit. New one is on the way.

Also purchased some other gauges, so if anyone wants a pair of green/white prosports cheap, pm or email me. 35 bucks for both, you'll need to buy an oil sender, under 20 bucks at prosport.

Nice, dodged a bullet there. BTW, damn those things are cheap! That kind of makes me feel a bit sick when I think of how expensive the Defis were. Anybody ever look into how accurate the Prosport gauges are? What did you replace them with? Why?

I got a pair of VDO's from egauges and a sender from summit. prosports are as accurate as you need in a street car, they were just too bright for my tastes. look like toys not gauges. just a preference and a convenient time to swap them out.

I will argue against the affirmative.
This is for your dsm block right ? I say skip it unless you are looking to make 600 + whp. The block can easily handle 500 whp out of the box so why spend the $ on that stuff when you could spend it on the suspension.

Yes it is. I think he had a shop in Canada that specialized in JDM swaps do it.

So someone offered to sell me a project car.

RS Supperleggera



I'm prepared to be pretty ambitious with this GC thing... but dare I be THAT ambitious? I think my head would explode trying to organize and source all the parts..
