    Ep82 rear suspension

    i can say i've seen two different types of rear top mounts on the ep82 turbo vs the ep91 turbo i'm not sure if they were changed on the ep82 turbo by the previous owner best to try a part number vs year search and see what you find --to be sure or may be Jay may know off the top of his head :D

    LSD Gearbox oil - How much is needed

    i've always used a funnel & connected tubing via the "level" hole to refill....a bit of laziness :D ... .lol...but using the top hole would be easier

    Bringing her back to life...Where to start?

    my first move in such situations is to take a step back, take a deep breath...and approach the situation as logically, objective and open minded as i can from there inspect the car thoroughly, engine, suspension, wiring, electrics, tire/wheels, exhaust, body/chassis, etc and make a list of what...

    What is the going rate?

    for a long time now i find myself not wanting to buy car parts at unreasonable's just a matter of principle. notwithstanding, i do understand that sometimes an item may be critical and you have to bite the bullet and buy it

    Swapping my 5efe engine for a 5efhe engine

    unfortunately i can only speak on seeing the acis on turbo 4e/5e set ups. From my observations over the years if you only have the long runners open, the power and torque dips sharply over a certain rpm, usually in the mid/top end ......if you have both the long and short runners open all the...

    Swapping my 5efe engine for a 5efhe engine

    again, this is not an area i have a lot of knowledge on. but i'd guess it would be better to get the oem 5efhe ecu, 5efhe wiring loom and 5efhe ancillaries (a few other pieces attach to the acis manifold) let the acis function properly

    Swapping my 5efe engine for a 5efhe engine

    i'd suggest not to do this. It will notably affect performance/drivability, especially on the modestly powered naturally aspirated 5e engine. if the member is not going to set up the acis manifold properly, then maybe look to use the existing (non-acis) 5e intake manifold on the 5efhe engine

    Swapping my 5efe engine for a 5efhe engine

    i can't speak on the wiring, but which version of the 5efhe engine are you planning to use? there is one with an acis intake manifold which i suspect would rely on a specific ecu, wiring and accessories to operate properly

    Link ECUs

    is it possible to use a fields extension harness to make the link ecu plug and play? similar to how its done with the EMU?..just some suggestions off the top of my head without knowing the specifics i absolutely despise cutting/splicing the oem harness,,,it can sometimes lead to electrical...

    Some track fun

    yeah, it does look interesting...guess if used in conjunction with the front and rear bottom braces it should in theory add some rigidity to the bottom of the car...for that track feel does it provide decent clearance for the exhaust piping,,,or do you think there would be some rubbing over...
