  1. That's with a 37mm restrictor.
  2. SCCA GT2 has a few Z33s with around 380hp N/A
  3. At toyota, we use a "wax" that's heated and then sprayed into the interior of the frame. It's unbelievably expensive. One thing to make sure you do is not gum up any paths of drainage within the unibody.
  4. No, that doesn't help but I am curious how the coil head is sealed to the plug "boot" to gain that level of water proofing.
  5. What I've found is that coils designed to be protected from the elements by a deep tube in the cylinder head are often less durable......at least the portion that the manufacturer assumed would be protected by the tube. Has anybody tested these types of coils with a misting of water?
  6. Tires are 225 but i didn't catch the other important size numbers. Lots of guys have track records on 60 series tires because they maintain a bigger footprint through non-optimal camber changes than a square shouldered 60 series tire. Rim size vs tire size matters in contact patch area.
  7. Did I miss a new pope being elected? If your car is automatic (unlikely) it could be sipping trans. fluid through the modulator. Also.........oil introduced after combustion can smoke white.
  8. Sanford Silverberg won ITS races with a S130. There are quite a few cars racing in SCCA that run insane spring rates because they listened to the guy who said "any suspension will work..........if you don't let it." Kind of the opposite of Colin Chapman. Depending on your car, you have to decide which is better.
  9. I've gathered 5 pairs but am one set short. The CB966p (no longer manufactured) are steel backed while the CB966a are aluminum. Any ideas that won't throw the balance off if I can't source one?
  10. 8 years on..... Car is now 3000hp. We still run at Kennedy space center runway which was renamed "Johnny bohmer proving grounds". I stopped making input with the project after they installed those tubes to the boxes in the back to pick up dirt and low pressure air behind the rear tires. I'm sure the air brought in from the stock location (high pressure area on deck in front of deck lip) was more than enough but........... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQKDgEAYylSy6fcE6bwD3EQ I feel a p79 or p90 head on an f54 block with flat tops has
  11. They make "retarders" for driveshafts on some trucks so it's likely you could find one that does both "retard" and "drive". https://www.telmausa.com/products/operating-principle
  12. They look a lot like the recaro KRS seats but not sure if they have made them since the 1990s. Back then, the "LS" seats had the small bolsters and the KRS had the big bolsters.
  13. Remember that once a balancer has been run loose, it could beat the key and keyway grooves up.
  14. Too small a gap has made my l28et idle rough at cold starting.
  15. The distributor drive is off by 180 degrees? You can easily check this by removing the distributor cap and see where the rotor is pointed when you're on tdc #1 and also seeing if the cam lobes for that cylinder are pointing up instead of downward. A field fix would be marching the plug wires around until #1 sits in the cap where the rotor is pointed
