Re: Thoughts

HAHA...I did not have luck with the Cometic and the fire ring separating. I went Cosworth and that stopped my issue. Good luck with her.

Re: Supakat's Thread

What's up guys...just checking in to say what's up. I still scour on here from time to time. Been working on the VQ. On Valentine's Day, I broke her heart. I am now finally getting to putting her back together. Hopefully, in 2 months, I will be running again and hurting some butts. https://youtu.be/...

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd,

One of the few issues I hate about the KA. I had thermal gasket and leaked boost until I noticed the mani did not have enough meat. I fixed by adding material with JB weld. Not sure if the flange warped or thermal shrunk after heat cycles. You will get this.

Re: e85 fuel level sensor

I would test out for $30. Since late 80's, ethanol has been in fuel. If adams sending unit still works and "not" e85 compatible, you are only paying more for a label/claim.

Re: e85 fuel level sensor

I swapped in a VQ35 into my S13 so I ripped out the cluster to put a tablet for my gauges. Curious now if I can connect a sending unit to the megasquirt. If not, I will get an aftermarket gauge with an aftermarket sending unit.

Hey guys, as I stated before, easier for Youtube progress rather than typing and posting images that will eventually get dead links. So fast forward 11 months and the VQ started up last week with a MS3 controlling it. I miss the forums tho on how personal it is with you guys. Glad to see older membe...

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd,

Nice adam. Me and you will need to text back and forth. My alpha TIG is coming in the mail today. I have a 336 cubic sq ft tank. I was lucky because my bro in law got one from a shop in Orlando for free. It is Airgas so I went and swapped for a straight argon tank. Was $123 out the door. I looked at...

Turned out cylinder 3 rod ran a lil slack. I then contemplated rebuilding the KA or go VQ. I then found a...
