  1. Don't fucking move to Texas if you plan on voting the liberal shit. We don't want the California life style here. If you vote, blame yourself, as the reason why there is so much of that shit there is because they don't lock up, or let you kill the trash like the ones that did that to your car. Sorry to hear this though, we had the same thing done to my son's 510. Unfortunately I didn't catch the kid in the act. Good thing is that I told the low-life ass hole father, that if I cought his spawn anywhere near a car of mine again, that I would shot him on the spot. He called the police, they told him that I had a right to use deadly force on someone attempting vandalisim or theft. He shipped the kid off to live with his mother. End of problem. the 510 is still sitting under a cover for the last 6 years, waiting for a door, fender, 3 windows, and trim.

    You will probably get banned for no intro, and at that point you won't be able to read your PMs anyway. How about a set of blown JICs ? (X8) Will cost you $450 for replacement Koni comp inserts. Make you one hell of a deal......... Includes springs & camber plates. E-mail duaxmachine (at) sbcglobal.net

    Electric Power Steering

    In my never ending quest on milking the last possible inch/pounds of torques out of my 7M, I have taken all but 1 belt driven accessories off it, the alternator, and that has been replaced with a Ford 3G 170 amp unit. And it will be cut from the circuit under full throttle. Since I went to a steering quickener (picture in 'I want to go backwards'), I wanted to still have some power assist on the steering. Surfing the 'net, I found where people were using electric power steering pumps off the SW20, but with problems such as pump running on full power all the time, making for lousy feedback to the steering wheel, and short pump life. That is because it has a complicated electronic system, that requires the ECU, and at least one other control box to work properly. But then I came across a thread on Honda-Tech, that had info on the MR-S pump that was greatly simplified. It can be used without any extra imputs, if you don't mind low steering feedback, because it cuts power when max pressure is reached. But also, you can just feed a simple speed signal directly into it's built in control, and get speed sensitive steering, so when you are doing, say 110 through a big sweeper, tht you will not have the power assist that you would while trying to pull into your driveway. And...... For about $50, you can buy a programable modual, that lets you alter the power to speed delivery scale (from a corvette guy, they are using these pumps also). The pumps have the standard M16 x 1.5mm thread as our racks do, and Aeroquip, Russell, and Earls all make banjo fittings to fit. The down side is that because they are so adaptable, they will bring from $250-$750 a pop. The cheaper they are, the more worn out they are. It seems that Toyota screwed the pooch when selecting brush material, as the communetator on the motor wears out befor the brushes. The first one I bought had deep wear, but some life yet, and the second was completely worn out, exposing the underlying plastic core of the communtator. But fear not....... I have found replacement blank communtators, and will soon be offering motor repair for them. Here is the honda-tech write-up: http://honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=2528249&highlight=ehps+redone Electrical connectors to fit it: P6 connector Part # 90980-12068 P7 connector Part # 90980-10897 P8 connector Part # 90980-10942 Three pigtails for the small & middle connectors P/N: 82998-12440 Two pigtails for the large connector P/N: 82998-12500 And the guy who makes the programable module: Controller - Mac Vabch - email michaelkmackeown@cox.net http://myraceshop.com/Legacy_Power_Steering_Controlle.html http://myraceshop.com/Power_Steering_Controller.html Note, if you want one all ready potted, with connectors, it a lot more, like $150 or so. You will also need a 75amp or larger relay, and a large 100a circuit breaker. I just hit up the automotive audio section of screwBay, and found both.

    JZ/UZ A340 bellhousing adapter to T56

    Punched some numbers with the CTS-v ratios ( 2.97, 2.07, 1.43, 1.00, .84, .56 ), and the 5.29 rear gears. Seeing that most of you don't spin your engines as fast as I do, I used 7500 as max. Here are the various speeds in gears at 7500: 1st - 36 2nd - 52 3rd - 76 4th -110 5th, 130 6th - 196 Anyone who wants to use a junk-yard pulled T56, my built rear end is ready to go, and it's got less that 400 miles on it, most from driving to & from the Texas Mile. Has fresh Red Line shock proof in it. $350 + shipping.........

    You will have to look up the spec.s on the caddy one. If it has the .5:1 6th gear, probably 4.88s or 5.29s. Richmond Gear makes the gear sets. If you want the 5.29s I have, I'll make you a deal on them, or even the whole rear end, it has a modified OEM LSD in it that has the main spring spacer, and the booster spring, and holds twice the factory torque.

    .62 is the shortest 6th gear they offer. Thier other is a stupid high .5:1. Had one, did all the foot work, didn't get the Tee shirt. Rear end had to be 4.88 gears, and at 8500 rpm, it would be 220 mph, which on a car as aerodynamic as a brick, would require aproximately 800 hp. Speeds in gears @ 8500 rpm with 4.88 rear gears: 1st - 46, 2nd - 66, 3rd - 96, 4th - 138, 5th - 172, 6th - 220 And because of tall gears in the trans, and low gears in the rear end, drive shaft speed is way up there. I even have the 5.29 gear set that I picked up for that set-up.

    Here is the upper portion of the mid shaft, insert, and spine coupler. The are then put into my lathe, and rotated while being Tig together.

    I can do the work if you send a spare mid-shaft. The special metric to SAE spline universal joint is $45. The machine work & welding of the shaft is $100. (includes upper spline adaptor, and internal strengthing shaft) And the quickener is up to you, and just like everything else, there are good ones, and chinese crap. Steering is something that I wouldn't skimp on. The one I use is new, and has a full planatary gear set inside instead of just a single pinion gear inside an internal tooth gear. You have to add a mount to hold the quickener. Since mine isn't in yet, I can't show you anything on that, but it will be something that comes off the frame rail behind the engine mount, and basicly it just needs to keep the quickener from turning, nothing special.

    Does anyone have experience with how the Richmond 6-speed shifts ? It has better ratios than the T56 (No stupid high overdrive), If I remember correctly, 6th is very close to the R154 5th ratio. They are cheaper than the Magnum. Down side is the US style external shift linkage.

    Electric Power Steering

    Typicly, on a hydro rack, there is still minimal clearance from one fluid side to the other, and even if the seals were gone, it will act like a giant shock absorber when trying to move it, especially if you try to move it fast. By connecting the ports, this won't happen. But removing the internal seals (not the end seals), you would reduce the drag a little.

    Sure, by just running a short hose between the 2 ports on the rack, with enough lube in it to keep everything wet.

    Seen it, but unless you have a cnc mill in your garage, it's worthless (mostly). Not all CNC machines use the same code, so it would still take a lot of work by the actual machinist to make it into a part. And if I remember correctly, doesn't that one also require welding? Tell you what, ask Rue if he wants to make some up. Better yet, ask him if he would want to run off a batch of copies of the one I have that uses a W58 bellhousing. All you need is the T56 'aftermarket' trans that has an extended shaft, and the T5 to T56 flange already on it. (or just buy the T5-T56 adaptor from a guy on eBay, they are like $225 each) Offer him some cash, I'll send the W58-T5 adaptor up to him to use as a pattern. And if anyone can answer, why do these adaptors have to be made out of steel, when both the trans flanges, and bell housings are aluminum ? Aluminum is a lot easier to machine, not to mention lighter......

    Bill, I probably wouldn't be going through the effort if I wasn't going to the 2:1 steering quickener.

  22. +1 on Quick ! Wish I could fix my fucked up 7Ms that fast. How many Red Bulls did it take ?
  23. Crap, I was having a panic attack. Sure sign of addiction........ Now if I can just get my ID switched back to 'Gordo', when time allows.
