Re: 4AGE - J160 and Silvia 6th Gearset Swap

Great success! Cold spell out here in the Bay means perfect time to press on 6th. Heated gear to approx 230F using a hot plate and monitoring temp with a temp gun. I found heating was really uneven on the gear (heating in an oil bath would have netted a more even gear temp...next time); ends of the ...

Re: 4AGE - J160 and Silvia 6th Gearset Swap

It took me a few attempts and a lot of thinking/research, but I finally pulled off 6th main gear today. I tried modifying a set of puller arms, but they ended up breaking gear teeth instead of pulling the gear. (There is only approx. 5mm between 6th gear and the rear output bearing. https://i.imgur....

Re: Aftermarket Bumpers with USDM Bumper Supports?

I know a guy in SCCA who cut the middle of his USDM front bumper bar to fit an aftermarket(?) front bumper. (This probably isnt legal). Because I care about crash safety, I trimmed, cut notches, and boxed in the USDM front crash bar to fit a runfree replica front bumper.

More air flow for the brakes. My 86 sees plenty of track time. Lots of oems either run a brake splash shield without a "lip," or none at all. Thats why I modified mine.

Could you expand on this?

Depending on how gears are cut, they may exhibit some noise. Easiest example is the "whine" type noise you hear in reverse because the gears are straight cut as opposed to helical.

Gear shifting issues in a T50 are almost always due to worn teeth on the shift sleeves (what you guys are referring to as the "collars." If the dog teeth (where the sleeve engages with) on the gear look ok and the gear teeth itself are not broken or chipped, the gear should be ok to reuse....

If you don't mind, how are you getting the TRD header exempted and which state ref are you going to? I know the ref can one time exempt stuff, for example if you are getting a swap BAR'd. But every time after that, a smog station in the know would ding you for it.
