~300hpish with that psi normal compression and some cams

I was hitting 18 psi by 3600rpm with my hx35 12cm housing, if I would have kept my tuned ecu I would still be driving it.
Perfect! Thank you sir. I can't wait to get this build together.

Auto trans life expectancy.

Using an inline cooler, how long can I expect the stock auto trans to last at 250whp? What about 350hp?

I've done some searching on here but there hasn't been much. Most people just do a 5 speed swap (I have a 5 speed, just not ready to put it in), or if they're set on auto go with a Z32 trans.

No, take the rail off. It doesn't take but a minute and makes it 1,000x easier to take off the bolts to the head.

Awesome build so far! I used to live in Ft Walton, that's where I bought my S13 I have now. I've got the same piston / rod setup and I've been looking really hard at the JGS kit. I'm aiming for about 350whp, and I'm worried about the 2.5" downpipe not having a flex section in it. I might also just s...

Don't waste time buying a cheaper solution for NA, then a nistune later. Nistune IS the cheaper version for good tuning, compared to full standalones. Anything below the calibre of nistune/megasquirt is not worth looking at. Its all a waste of time and money. I don't see why not. I'm in a particula...

Noob questions galore.

I've decided to learn the basics of tuning. I have a NA KA24DE, that I recently removed emissions on. Now the car is running rich; I mean really rich. Like having to fill up every 4-5 days rich. I was getting about 28mpg, now I'm getting like 18mpg. I knew it would run a little rich, but damn! My go...

You don't simply choose to either have or not to have piston slap, it all depends on the type of material the pistons are made of and how much they will expand inside of the bore. I would strongly recommend boring your block to the recommended tollerances that come with the Arias Pistons. Thats wha...

I messed with the IACV for a good bit and it did not change anything. Also messed with the ignition timing to make sure it was all right and it was.

Thanks for the help man. It's much appreciated. Buy a can of starting fluid and start spraying it around your bay. If your engine revs, you're in the vicinity of a leak.
