  1. So many questions 😁 Easy install with no issues . I’ve had long enough to know they will take a thrashing with 230hp . R-180 . Don’t have brake cables , but they are no bigger then halfshafts .
  2. They are works of art . Very stout . I can’t see how you would break them . I run a modest 230 rwhp , but I thrash my car a lot . They aren’t the weak link . It would be more likely my wheel axles
  3. Why not ? Wouldn’t at least be a base line ? I know its a bit of a PITA to coordinate and cost $ , but inquiring minds want to know
  4. So what was the outcome here . I noticed my 3.90 CLSD ( Subaru’s ) has significant play at the axles . I’m talking up and down movement of the axle at the diff . I know the STI’s don’t mount their diffs the same as ours . They are rubber mounted I believe.

  6. I SPY ! My neighbor wonders why I’m always working on mine .
  7. That sucks you had to clearance stuff . Those are second generation CV ‘s from Futofab ? I had first generation axles that had 5 degrees of slop Glad I spent the money and went with ZCG axles
  8. Yeah - I was referring to the idler
  9. I think you underestimating the BLING factor. It comes in different colors Most of us won't drive our cars enough to test the limits of everyday driving on this tensioner . It was worth to me just to make dialing in the cam easy and or turning over the motor . Really came in handy with a P90 shaved .080
  10. I think the cool factor outweighs any reasonable longevity argument -LOL. It sure does make the process of getting our cam dialed in much easier . You can literally go either direction with the chain instead of just one direction. Time will tell about adverse wear issues . Love the instructions that came with the tensioner - "please ignore bearing noise-this is normal" My exhaust is pretty loud so Imagine if the exhaust was quieter , the tensioner would be more obnoxious . As stated before -don't over tighten. Just use your fingers to press the gears together.
  11. More visceral -ness 244D1B3D-3B46-4164-A673-F38A21FAEDB5.MOV
  12. A bit - but the urethane mount can be shaped as you need . I have it as part of my diff sandwich by using the stock mount below and GM above
  13. Wait until you hear that chain tensioner :-0
  14. If you had a GM mount hanging the diff you could shim it - down
  15. Wow - just found this thread . I thought I wasn’t the only one . Same exact issues of SS set from Classic Tube not sealing. I found out about these flares thru another web site . So far they have worked for me . Like you said - tricky to keep in place. I was worried about them moving and actually blocking the passage . Those lines will destroy anything they don’t mate up too. Owner bought the lines for me to install on a resto. I wouldn’t have gone SS , but that’s what I got to work with . Never again
