Re: CC White bunny throw out bearing

4 project cars, damn dude....wish I had the time and money to do that! Stop buying speedhut gauges... :dance: kidding. Project is a stretch for 2 of them. 4 day workweeks are the best, except for that 72hr/week stint I have to do for 2+ months every year and a half. Also my wife is awesome and unde...

Oh thats nice. I am working on 4 project cars, if I can make it work for free that's what I'll do. I know a guy who sells Speedhut though. I'll keep that in mind for the future.

Re: CC White bunny throw out bearing

Some more musings for my S14 brethren. When swapping over to the Z32 trans, the wiring will need to be adapted over for the speedo and back-up sensor. The plug itself fits for the back-up lights, but the switch is all the way back by the shifter so you'll have to lengthen the wires. As for as the sp...

I just got mine installed yesterday. You're going to love it. This thing is LEAGUES ahead of the tired KA trans that came out.

Re: CC White bunny throw out bearing

So, was thinking about shifter placement. You have the xcessive mounts right? Can you slide your engine forward enough to line it up? My xcessive motor mounts are slotted maybe 4-5". Also did you send the bellhousing in or machine it yourself. Trying to see what needs to be machined so I can talk to...

Killed my transmission today just driving down the road. 400 wtq and it gave up the ghost. Z32 trans time maybe? Looking at the Xcessive kit against Mazworx. what made you go w/ Mazworx out of curiousity?

I only used the driver's side Xcessive mount but I got the hood clearance I needed. Short story on the dyno this morning, I lost 5hp peak but gained 16 ft/lb torque. The real story is...

So I used just the driver's side Xcessive mount at this point.

It also did give me enough hood clearance for the turbo. I'll grab pics later, my cool...

On the S14, there is a proportioning valve that sticks down at a 45 degree angle to the rear brakes. The wastegate sits there. I had to swap to a z32 BMC to clear, yes.

Re: Ka24det 500hp dream

I would personally stay with the stock IM and throttle body for your goals for throttle response and low-end. I'm sure others will disagree but the huge throttle body is going to make it act like a peaky boost monster. I'm building a KA for the same goals. Bc stage 2 cams and twin scroll T3 housing....

Re: Ka24det 500hp dream

T2 mani is going to choke the engine higher in the revs imho. Youve got a tiny flange for your exhaust and a HUGE throttle body which is going to kill throttle response/control in lower revs. What are you building this for? High revs drag/drift stuff or responsive auto-x/scca/nasa street type use? T...

Re: Best T3 manifold for the money?

How much did you have to shim? I may just use the driver's side one to 'tilt' the engine a little. I have a little less than 1" of clearance as it is with the p2m mounts lowered to the max.
