Looks good to me, I wouldnt have pulse Mig'd though. Just get the heat and wire right and position yourself comfortably so you can lay a super smooth weld. Try and get around the whole joint only stopping 1 or 2 times to reposition. Hit the welds with a low grit grinding disc and take off the high s...

I had 2 sets of mustang wheels, standard lugs worked great with both sets. If anything, get shorter lugs. The longer ones stuck out a bit too far IMO. You can see them here. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v133/black240sx/240sxyo014.jpg These were the lugs. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/20pcs-Gol...

Just do a 5 lug swap :)

That is a good deal though, the 4 bolt rotors are actually cheaper than any of the actual 5 bolt ones. I love the Q45 brakes too, perfect performance match to a 240.

Flip them 180. If your pump shaft was installed with the crank at TDC but the cam was at 180, it can look like the motor is at TDC but the cam is off. Just pull the valve cover and make sure the DOT is level with the head surface on the right side of the cam, when the dot is here, the rotor should p...

Although its true that the oil is circulated and mostly clean as it passes through the sandwich, if you're breaking in a motor you are going to have a period of operation where you will have constant metal particulate flowing into the filter. Having a sandwich will almost guarantee a blown turbo if ...

I think some of you guys have it backwards.... If you use a sandwich adapter, the oil comes out of the block into the threaded part where the filter screws onto the post. Then the oil coming out of the filter, is filtered, and goes out the holes in the side of the sandwich adapter. I don't see how ...

Dont use sandwich adapters unless you're running inline oil filters to your turbo and gauges etc. The oil you're drawing from is unfiltered and if you run this to your turbo you're going to pump oil pan particulate right into your turbo's bearing. I ran one previously, never again though. The DOHC o...

Ebay exhausts are pretty shoddy. I've had a few and they've all had problems within a year or so. Usually the hangers rip off, I weld them back on and they're good to go, I guess you could order an exhaust and get all the hangers beefed up ahead of time.

I was amazed at how well the car runs without all the idle control with a stock ECU. I ran my car with NOTHING on the intake manifold and it ran great. Just needs a bit more throttle when the motor is really cold. after about a minute its good.

Its just a matter of time. No one will buy them in the quantity they need to sell them at this price. I'd wait them out, I can see them going for less than $300 shipped. The SR ones are less than $200.

Correction, they're already starting bid $269 on ebay.
