I approve 100%.. however I didn't see the shotgun wielding gangsta mod in your build thread. Did I miss something?

Back to some serious Business,

I did some upgrading today. I installed a ported 2G exhaust manifold, Heavily ported 14B Hotside, heavily ported 02 housing with a Dump tube welded onto it. I gotta say these upgrades definitely have the 14B spooling a little faster. The only thing I need to re-do is the manifold to turbo gasket. I will swap it out for a 7CM gasket as soon as it comes in.

The only issue I ran into with the install is that the 14B hotside I used had the wastegate flapper arm fully closed about 1/4 in closer to the vaccume solenoid. with the first install the flapper would never close. I kinda knew what was wrong as soon as I started the car since there was loud exhaust coming out of the dump tube at idle. It also would not boost! So to remedy I spaced the solenoid away with some washers and a nut. I measured as to try and get it fully closed normally. That did the trick!

Also I did the Skateboard bearing Mod on my shifter cables.

End of Update.

I had the same problem with my 14b on my excel for some reason and what I did was thread the waste gate rod on both sides. I also then had a sleeve thread with the same threads and 2 lock nuts. Needless to say it worked pissa, and never had that problem again AND! I could boost a lot more with out a boost controller :wink:

Small Update, I installed a 93 Scoupe steering wheel. My original Eaxel steering wheel was Light tan abut around 3 shades of brown due to Sunfading and normal wear.The swap was pretty straightforward and almost bolt on. I only had to trim a little plastic off the rear of the wheel to clear the Colum cover plastic. I think it looks "ok" but defineteley feels better. It has grips kinda like a racing steering wheel. I dont have any pics but Ive atttached two images of what the original looked like and what the new looks like.

These pics are for reference. I meant that I do not have any pics of the wheel installed into the car. My whole interior is tan. My new steering wheel is almost black. I think it looks good.

Official weight 1/2 tank of gas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2385

I went to have my car weighed today and the result is 2680
Subtract 80lbs for dual 12"subs
subtract 170lbs for myself
Subtract 45lbs for the gas and I end up with

This is for a sunroof car with no power steering, some ac lines still intact, manual windows/mirrors/door locks and no lightening whatsoever

Gas weighs ~8.8 lbs. per gallon. so tack on another 45 lbs. That's a nice low number to start off with :)
