    When the time is right, im hoping to make a trip out to the west for a couple cars. Itd be nice to buy something from a skilled member. Im not even gonna hope that hard for it.

  5. I cant seem to get it out of him. Hopefully, his life is just busy in a good way. If someone would be as so kind to send me an oem piece clock bracket or just the dimensions, i could spit them out in a couple of days. Ill pay handsomely just to get it fucking done.

    sorry to ask but no tiempo

    So I've had this on going issue with my 5vzfe. I have to take it into the ZONE to see, if codes actually come up this time around. Other than that I've got very little time until Christmas "break". Don't want to waste my break chasing bullshit and don't want to run my shit into the ground out to neglect. I love dailying this thing. It's my street fighting thing hauler... bob 'n' weave, run over shit, pick up free shit. The longs: It's a 1996 T100 2wd auto to manual conversion. Auto ecu with transmission sensor in park. 340k miles. A couple month's after the swap, it started struggling with idle. And No break up in acceleration, may be a once a week stumble. I chased a code or 2. Cleaned the MAF with a qu-tip. REMOVED CAT (it was dying). Stumbling and lack of idle went away. A few weeks later, I started getting a break up during throttle. Sometimes off the line. Sometimes around 3.5-4.5krpms. It's getting worse. I'm hoping one of you guys has just dealt with this problem a thousand times and can just nail it. If not, I need a good plan of action/process of elimination. All I can rough guess is TPS, MAF, coils, or timing. I will run codes again today or tomorrow. See what i can see. a Besides being down right irritating and progressively killing shit, it's completely shelved any momentum to turbo it. Not going put in as freshly rebuilt turbo just to blow fins up. Thanks for the hand holding in advance.

    Honestly, all those things are on the to do list. One bitty thing at a time. In order of functionality over sensibilities. I just swapped out wheels and tires again. Then i will swap more brake pads (like a cressida this got pedestrian single pistons up front). I still havent bothered with drilling bolting down the shifter boot. The life load thing just needs to chill for a bit. Besides this problem hasnt killed anything in the year of dealing with it. Also, I think that ive just aged out of summer weather prematurely. Tired of ball sweat, mosquitos, and sun beating the shit out of me.

    Anyone have a solution to the PS fitting.

    Why do you need a peacock fitting?

    5VZ and 1GR extended oil fill necks

    Still awaiting fabrication. Im going to see if a machine shop can cut out the need for the overpriced china cap. And i still have to find a 1GR vehicle and measure that all out.

    5VZ and 1GR extended oil fill necks

    So I made one for myself. Works as intended. Only for regular members. It's a 2uz filler neck glued to an ebay cap (oil hole bored out). Mo has spoken for 3 of the 5. That leaves 2. Ill post pics of finished bits.

    Wanted: ecu connectors with pigtails

    Need this to convert my T100 to a manual/obd1-ecu. If you have them handy for cost of shipping or know which chassis that I can go pillage for myself, let me know. I have 1-2 of the connectors already. The small ones are kind of harder for me to find. Regards

    Wanted: ecu connectors with pigtails

    Thats cool, but not what i need. I need to adapt an A/T harness to a M/T ecu. https://goo.gl/images/DXMSmq

    Wanted: ecu connectors with pigtails

    Found my ecu under something. Gordon sent me an old jumper harness that i can use (hearts). Hoping to pick up a 2nd vehicle here soon. Ill actually be able to work on it freely.

    ^people with lack of direct from stacking bad decisions and/or poor life balance call their self indulgent coping mechanisms, hobbies. I have zero intentions of getting wrapped up in cars as a negative to my life as a whole. Getting a new car is an even shittier money pit, if you haven't figured it out yet. And yeah, LSX and 2J life are expensive and unnecessary. No one here is making more than 450whp. If you just love those motors and nothing else, cool. But honestly, they have too much tax associated with them. There's nothing clever left to do with them. They're a fixed game. Everything is off the shelf. And off the shelf prices are always high. There is benefit to tried and true, but it is very much a double edge sword. I'd personally rather end up like Gordon and the 7M, making it better than stock, but I wont hold to 1 motor series for 30 yrs. I'll switch whatever is best.

    Same here sort of. Parts store only carries a valve that moves differently than stock so I just leave valve disconnected. Open/close by hand. Glad your shit box lives.

    Lxx motors have shot up to $1600. Not buying into either money pit.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    I was going off a dusty conversation with an old member here and some grasping at straws of common sense. The current internet says exhaust pulses are better maintained. V8 has that as a disadvantage. Tt actually fucks it's pulses up. But an inline 4-6 gets divided into 2 smaller-motor pulses. 2 smaller gates also regulate low and high boost pressure better (no boost creep). Drag racing seems to like not using 35psi out of the hole. Response is better overall. I doubt we are talking about response that matters to hipster fucktard trying their best to mismatch body panels and pick them stickers.

    ______ and more responsive spool. Has to have divided manifold.. obviously. Divides it into 2 3cyl motors... kind of like twin turbo v8s. Very not like inline 5s..
