i'll be installing my avc-r in a few weeks, I hope it makes a difference, i really didn't like my ball+spring controller.

update on the car, head is on (went out and bought a 12 point 1/2" socket, did the trick), intake manifold is mostly on, fuel rail is on, I need to pick up a tap for my egt probe for the manifold, new elbow is in the turbo... my buddy says we'll turn the key tommorow night, but who knows.

well after a spell of complete disinterest in my car, things are lookin better. this week im goin to change the plugs (getting a misfire at higher rpm and sometimes at idle), change the oil (what do you suggest? 10W40? 5W30?), replace the accordian hose (most likely, just have to find out the price), install my JMBC, and on friday, i might be getting Eibachs (only becuase i cant find H&Rs for a good price locally). Im also waiting on Jeff@ss to reply, i might get poly a-arm bushings, i think mine are dead or on their way out. anyone want to help install the springs when i get them?

hey ryan, whats goin on with the lower IC pipe? were you going to get murrays pipe copied? let me know, i want to replace mine i think.

dude run 10 40 in your car


as for the pipe i have it one my car the origlae one and it far from fun install but ti did fit after alot of um smokeing cigs and buch of bitching and still fit in not fun like but ti work good


my best sujestion on get lower on made that is if your is ead and stuff you know when you pull it off and i sujest that you do cause they tend to get old and leak bost cause high ideal probs ect


but if it ant riped or leaking then there is no point on really replaceing it just the lower half of it whiht hard pipe

you can have my old peac of hard pipe if you wish

holy CRAP i just spent $122 on NGK Plats and some 10W40 oil.... goin to pick up a new accordian hose on friday for $72 unless Jas can find me a better deal.

as for springs, found a reputable site that will sell me H&Rs for US$213 shipped (not sure if its UPS or Fedex yet) which is around $310 CDN. if that falls through, tirereack has them for US$198, but they ship UPS.

yeah. NGK plats arent cheap spark plugs, but you might notice a difference, and they should last awhile...

i thought a acordian hose is only like 50 bux?

Update...

I was so sure I was going to turn the key tonight, worked from 6pm until midnight, only to learn that my lower heater hose was leaking out of the back of the engine. The JDM block has it on the opposite side from the USDM block (some LHD/RHD thing), so I thought I could use just any hose I had lying around... 3/4" appears to be too big, time to pick up some 5/8" tommorow. Then... I can drive like a granny until I'm sure the motor is ok and my clutch is broken in

well, after lookin around and reading some posts by Dr J and Larry A, i returned the NGK plats and picked up some Champion coppers. gapped them to 0.031, ready to go in. with the difference in price, i also picked up a couple of bottle of DOT 3 brake fluid to freshen up the brakes, and i got a nice little $61 credit back that will pay for the new accordian hose.

What's wrong with NGK Plats? All I heard is that they don't provide a performance advantage over coppers, but last longer...

Or did I confuse them with Iridiums?

as i said befor copper ones tend ot nto take heat as muh as platum tiped plud but copper is good conndutor better then plate but int this case you just gap you plats closer to gain you spark back iraums have the best of both worlds

what i run is nkg lazser plates i find to be very nice plug and have nice heat control as well as longativety

all and all i run plaumts gaped ot my timeing i have set

what one sot buy is arainums there pimp plug but they were just coeming out whe i bought my plugs so they were not avavble yet

maybe in half year or so i may switch to em or some thing but eh mine work great right now and get mean spark should know i have bean shocked hehehe
