Re: Divided T4/Twin WG Turbo Manifold+More!(updated 3/26/17)

Still one of my favorite S13 KA-T builds. Good luck with your rebuild, and should you ever want to sell that intake manifold or make another hit me up :D

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

Love the LS2 bracket you came up with man. I went with something much simpler with mine, and always wished Id taken the time to do it right. I recall one time where I boost crept to 25psi and saw AFR's hit 12.2 (was running 120lb inj on 93, and it was a cold night thank god).... Felt like I was bein...

Re: Head lifting issues solved Permenantly!!!

This was one of the main drivers to parting out my 240. The head kept lifting repeatedly, and I was only in the low 400's. So thankful to see this Duncan, as I'm planning on making a return and this issue weighed heavily on me. Thanks!

Re: ka24det running REALLY HOT. Help me

+20 for air in system. Lift the front end sometimes helps get the bubbles out too. FYI - Both the OEM and Nismo thermostat break open, and not closed like VatoZone and Oreallys brand knock offs. Worse that will happen if it breaks is your car runs cold, like a deleted thermostat. I'm sure someone wi...

Re: ka-t running hot.

You've introduced extra heat in your engine bay, and blocked the airflow to your radiator so it only makes sense you're seeing higher temps. You also neutered your cooling power with electronic fans instead of the factory clutch fan on a stock radiator. I've been through the same issue. Living in Te...

Yea it has a weap hole to start pushing coolant pressure out and so you know if the pump is bad. But the gasket can leak on its own also, which causes it to overheat as well. Such as the case with mine right now. But if you don't see any leaks you should be good. As said above, you're probably lift...

If you need a battery box...go to Autozone and get one of the plastic Marine types (like ~$10). Thats what I've always used in the countless battery relocations I've done, and have had no issues.

Take your valve cover off and post some pics if your unsure. My guess is your timing chain guide finally broke and is jumping around in the front cover area of your cylinder head. Buddy of mine's S14 had this issue and it was VERY loud from what I remember.
