Re: AE86 Headlight Illumination Knob

Best of luck! I did the same thing for my high mile 240sx.. new oe combination switch and turn signal stalk etc.. its so nice and a sticker would never be equivalent. Thankfully the rings are flat and rarely used in this case.

Re: blue smoke

Bummer... Valve stem seals tend to cause blue smoke especially after downshifts off throttle (high vacuum in the head). It will then smoke once you get back on throttle. Usually a block should be machined to fit the pistons to get the right wall clearances, and the rings should be gapped to account ...

Re: Fujitsubo Legalis R vs Reinhard Stainless

I have the Reinhard stainless. It is shockingly loud with testpipes. Probably too loud for 80% of people for street driving. And i haven't taken the silencers out of the tips yet.. Also the silencers rusted a bit with the car outside for a month, and the exhaust hangs a bit too low. My ride height i...

Re: Silvertop A/C Compressor

Not an expert, haven't seen a 20v AC compressor either - have you run dye through the system and identified the leak to be coming from the pulley area of the pump? There may be an o-ring that is replaceable between the pump and a manifold bolted to the pump. Sometimes its custom and hard to find rep...

Weld it in place if that is one of the dowel pin points. (Assuming t50/4age have them)

Ive heard that the afm flap can slap closed and open when stumbling and it turns off and on the fuel pump... Perpetual bucking. Not a great design.
