my car may be down and without the downpipe adapter (aka larger turbo elbow) but its going into the tranny shop thursday...

rebuilding tranny with higher line pressure, 3000rpm stall torque converter, modified valve body(?) 24000 gvw tranny cooler... and im thinking maybe a tranny temp gauge mounted in the glove box.

i just hope this doesnt take too long. driving that nissan 240sx is scaring me. everytime i come to a red light, i swear ive stalled the thing, its so damn quiet.

yeah VW Rabbit, whats up with that scottie? heh

driving your car was a little weird compared to the 4 banger 240sx man. you really gotta stomp on your gas to get it to rev... either that or the seat was just way too far back. christ you arent that much taller than me are you? im like 5'11 or 6ft i think

GREDDY SUX MY ASS! .... im never going to see that elbow

time to go with a custom build. the only benefit i can see is that it'll be 3" right from the turbo down. im not sure what the size of the Greddy elow is...

on the downside. i have to pay for it.

one of these days my car will be back on the road... i swear! hehe

amazing how little screw ups like this can cause so much havock. even the guys rebuilding my tranny need the engine to be running to figure out where the stall limit is, and where it should properly be. so all they can do for now is yank the tranny out and hopefully i can get this custom part made for them in the meantime.

ask on supraforums for specs on your rebuild, someone will probably have some good ideas. from what i understand, 3200 stall, upgrade clutches, increase line pressure.... but thats about all i know, and i dont really know what it means

its not worth asking. as so many people have told me -- "all cars are different" even if theyre running the exact same setup. and its the same with torque converters. the place ive taken my car too builds trannys for drag cars and such. there was a dodge viper in the parking lot while i was there...

anyways. the stall limit should be put where the car will best accept it, so just generally saying 3000rpm is a good stall or whatever is generally wrong. the have to test it to see where the stall limit is now (the stock can be raised to a certain level with just power upgrades, the torque converter just adjusts to it) so they define where that is, and where your engine is actually kicking in, along with when boost is kicking in, factor that to your rear end gear ratio. and viola you have the proper RPM to bore the torque converter out to..

err i think thats sorta how it goes. shit i dont know what im talking about either. but the guy tried explaining it to me. and ive read somewhat of the same sorta idea on the internet before..... as for the rest of the tranny, thats just one helluva crazy abyss. i have no idea how the damn thing works. but aslong as they can get me squeeling the tires into 3rd, instead of sloppy 5 second long shifts, i'll be happy

I am looking for new suspension for my car, I want to get the H&R spring but dont know about the strut......

Can anyone tell me the difference between Koni yellow, KYB GR2, and Tokico Illumina II?

and which site has the best price on these?

and where is the best place to get them installed?

I want to get everything done under 1k........

H&R is a good choice. i use them. its a great progressive spring.

as for struts, id suggest Koni Yellows, www.suprasport.com has them for a decent price, you can also ask at a local Lordco

KYB's are garbage if you plan on pushing your car hard, or if you want to do any autocross.

Tokico Illumina II's are for TEMS arent they? im not sure if it was the II's or which. those are also good, but i think more expensive.
