Re: FC mirrors

Thanks man! I have read that only two bolt holes were used as well. Did you have to trim away any of the plastic at the base of the mirror? I appreciate the reply.

ae101 intake valve

Im looking to replace an intake valve on my 20v silvertop.

My search has turned up this part number 13711-16040

Ive had no luck cross referencing.

So my question is, does anyone know if there is a state-side option available? I can only seem to find supertechs for sale here in the US.

FC mirrors

Ok.. So i have heard that FC RX7 side view mirrors can be modified to fit the ae86. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, does anyone know of tips or tricks, or a general direction to head in? I purchased a cheap set of FC mirrors and after my intial assessment, it appears it may be possible but will t...

Re: 96 Geo Prism

Youre welcome Kuddster. Sounds like you have a nice FX16 on your hands, you should try your luck in the Cars for Sale section on this site.
I really think that your FX16 with the 20v swapped in would be the ticket, just my opinion. Good luck!

Re: Another 4AG Problem

I would def still check the tank as there might be something wrong with your pick up on your pump, but it does seem strange that the level of fuel does not matter. I would start at the tank though, not too difficult to drop and check. Keep us posted, and good luck.

Re: Another 4AG Problem

Is it a GTS or a SR5 converted to GTS? If it is an SR5/GTS conversion, and the GTS tank and fuel lines were not swapped over, you are likely running an un-baffled fuel tank. When you initiate a "hard" right turn on 1/4ish tank, all of your fuel is sloshing away from the fuel pump pick up, ...

Blacktop AT ECU, for the higher rev limit. I dont know who told you that using COP's would ruin your engine but that is a load of crap. Plenty of guys using them with no issues, myself included.

Re: How to seal quater glasses

I used the tape, napa brand butyl rubber. Works great I don't have any leaks and its super easy to set and work with. I wouldn't use it on the front windshield lol but I make the argument that its quite suitable for the quarter glass. Cheaper and a lot less messy too. Just my opinion.
