  1. That's exactly what I envisioned when you suggested sidepipes. I think it would look good. I would go for a round/oval tips but that's just me. And uh, What's up with your paint job? Is that something special? Maybe it's the lighting but it really looks marbled. At first I was going to say spray can But i would like to give you the benefit of the doubt. No offense meant of course.
  2. Another choice would be a lightened Flywheel. But that might be best saved for when a new clutch is needed.
  3. To those interrested---Yes, the g head will bolt onto the f block with no problems. There are other issues but that was the biggest hurdle of the bunch.
  4. If the Paseo engine fits, would'nt the 7afe fit also?
  5. That's 2.25 inches correct? Ya that is about as big as I would go for a n/a engine with the mods your planning.
  6. That would be what is affectionately called clutch shudder. Happens when cold mostly? Not sure on a treatment. I think it's the pressure plate not releasing evenly when engaging the clutch. It usually "fixes" itself.
  7. Excellent idea, Did'nt think of that. Thanks.
  8. Most places like that will keep it a secret because they don't want to be copied. And so they leave it out of the mags unless they are selling a bunch of them. Unfortunately you have to buy the cams in order to measure the lift,duration,and overlap.
  9. I'm in the process of rebuilding a 4afe. I need to know if a g head will bolt on. I Am also looking into different crankshafts but cannot find specs on the different engines. I know that on the f engines most parts swaps over but the strokes are different. Somebody has to know or know where to look. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Intake, header, exhaust is a good start for a little more power and a good sound. After that it's up to your budget.
  11. Do you mean brake rotors? A good set of metrics should do the trick. And A brake pad spreader would help. Available at most auto parts stores.

    And since it keeps happening you might want to have your alternater checked as well. Though a dead/low cell does sound about right. What is your battery voltage at when you let it sit vs. when it's running?
  13. A dealership should be able to provide you with a blank. Or maybe a locksmith shop carries them. They could then cut you a copy.
  14. That pretty much just means that they did some work early. The warranty period is measured either by the calendar or your odometer. I would'nt worry about it.
  15. Change the tranny fluid. Try a lighter oil. I had the same grinding in my tranny when shifting into 4th and 5th. I changed the fluid to Amsoil series 2000 20w50 and the problem has gone away.
