  1. I'm about the order some coil and am between BC's and these. This thread may have pushed me towards these! I was curious if the threaded tube comes notched to clear the hump on the spindle. Shown in this picture, can you confirm that the notch came precut, or is this a cut that you had to make? Thanks!

    Silvermine R180 Stub Axles?

    Thanks for the response. In my searching, I have only seen one negative review from someone who bought them on ebay and the splines twisted right off the bat. Outside of that, I saw a post that John Coffey wrote stating that Silvermine has great quality. Anythis else that anyone can share? I dont drag or road race, so I assume they would be just fine.

    Silvermine R180 Stub Axles?

    Anyone running the Silvermine stub axles for their subi r180 swap? Any comments you can share on the quality of them vs. the Wolf Creek (Beta) ones or the FutoFab ones? The looks and description is almost identical to the Wolf Creek (Beta) stub axles but they are almost $200 cheaper! http://www.silverminemotors.com/featured/lsd-r180-sti-out-output-flange-conversion-stub-axels

    Weber DCOE 45 - Tuning Help!

    Looking for some thoughts/opinions from the Weber guru's out there, on the setup of my DCOE 45's. I purchased my 240z and it came with 45's on it, which I've concluded are too big for my application, but will deal with it for the time being. For the time that I've owned the car, getting it started was always a hassle and there was a lot of stumbling/hesitation at the bottom end/slow speeds. The engine didn't really come alive until 5-6k RPM through 3rd and 4th gear, basically all top end and it ripped hard on the highway. A few weeks back I decided to have the carbs gone through and retuned by a local weber specialist. Now that I have the car back, yes starting is easier and bottom end hesitation has been somewhat improved, but the overall powerband feels flat across the board. I feel like the spunk has been removed LOL. On top of that, I get popping during slower acceleration and lots of popping when throttling down. The guy attributed the popping to the valves needing adjustment. That said, I was hoping to gather thoughts on the tuning that was done. Below are the engine and carb specs that I have. Thanks for your help! Engine: Original L24 Original head with enlarged valves (don't know the valve specs) 6-2 headers Crane EI Carbs - Current Tune Weber DCOE45 Choke/Ventury: 30mm (was 32mm) Main Jet: 125mm Air Corrector: 175mm Idle Jet: 65mm Aux Ventury 4.5 E-Tubes: Unknown (F11 or F16) Pump Jet: Untouched and Unknown
