Re: S14 ka24de in s13 chassis; Not turning off!

Have you had any problems with the ECU? I had a similar issue but mine was caused by a burnt trace in the ecu that also fried a diode. I patched the trace but never fixed the diode and i ended up having the same problem as you. I found a ghetto work around which was removing the EGI Relay in the eng...

Re: Greddy Type RS BOV Boost Leak

I've been having some idling issues so I made a checklist of things to try/change/address. One of those things was to do a vacuum leak test on my vacuum block/tree. Found that my NRG FPR and Greddy RZ BOV leaked pretty bad through the adjustment screw and nipple threads where the jamnut is used to ...

Re: Old Balls needs a pic request.. halp

I came across these pics a while ago. I also posted a pic of the crank pin that needs to be removed if your using a D21 flywheel. I wish i could give credit to the people who posted them, but I cant seem to find the threads. Hope this helps. http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a610/LPime001/kadustsh...

Re: 1995 240sx cuts out/misfires

Have you pulled any ecu codes.
It may be your CAS failing. This may show up as a code 21.

Just a thought.

Re: Knocklite Testing before Installation

Thank guys for all the help. Just to clarify, all I want to do right now is power up the unit to see if it works before installing it. From reading the manual, it seems like power, ground and rpm signal should initiate a startup sequence. I have not tapped the RPM line yet so this may be my problem....

Re: What Downpipe fits jgs kit--Isis does not :/

I can't comment on the ISIS downpipe, but I picked up a 3" downpipe off of ebay. The one I bought didn't have a flex section, so I had my buddy weld one on for me. He made sure to keep the geometry of the pipe the same and it ended up fitting great with my JGS mani and downpipe. The bracket that bol...

I think it would depend on what that compressor map looks like. That big turbo, producing pressure so low may put you to the left of the surge line.

Do you hear surging while on the throttle at full boost?
If not, your probably ok.
