Re: ISIS RS3871 @ 12psi

Does your boost taper off pretty aggressively on stock cams? Thats the one thing I have noticed with this turbo, which is surprising to me given the size. Even my old t28 would hold max boost a bit longer. This is rather peaky like the stock turbo on my sti.

Re: Xcessive Z32 Adapter Failure - Do Not Buy

I haven't been on the site in a while, but I am very thankful I stopped in. I was just browsing for z32 trans adapter kits, and figured after I checked out the Xcessive kit I would drop in here and see if anyone had issues before I bought it. THANKFULLY this post was on the first page.

Exhaust Jig Ideas?

Hey all, I am working on an exhaust for my BRZ which has a dual exit exhaust. Intermediate exhaust components like manifolds, downpipes, cats, etc can all be jigged easy by fixing a flange on either end and bolting up to that. But, how do you jig a catback, particularly the tips? I can't seem to com...

Re: better way to seal blow thru maf

If you can find them, someone made a metal z32 maf housing designed specifically for blow through. I found one on this forums a few years back and it works fantastic. Seals up great and no blocking apart billet aluminum. Background: I had a stock z32 maf that blew at 8psi. Epoxied the cap and in the...

I like thin metal compression gaskets. I always blew out the thick eBay kind.

Think mr. Copper to have an idea of the style I like.

I think with options like MS out there now, there is little incentive for it. You buy NIStune, licensing, etc then add the cost of your module. And now you are at the same price as MS but still with the limitations of a MAF.

That is definitely not what you should take away from this discussion. Assuming you set your timing correctly, no there shouldn't be any worry.

Yeah the head is supposed to be like that, it's not broken. The bottom tensioner should have a long spring behind it. So there shouldn't be any gap between tensioner and guide? The tensioner is supposed to be constantly pushed against the guide? Yes. I just pulled the head off mine last week as a m...

You can specify thickness with Cometic gaskets, there are a few sizes that are regularly stocked. You can get almost any thickness you want.

you dont need a thicker h/g....only thing is does is very very slightly raise your comp ratio which wont hurt anything being so miniscule.... This.
