I picked up some Koni yellow sport rear struts, a fender roller ( I need to roll the rear fender out and up about a 1/4". I also finished soldering up the Jimstim simulator. I feel a lot more confident in my circuit board soldering skills now to take on the actual Megasquirt II board. I would like t...

Suggestion for COP

 by GT4LIFE ¦  Thu Jan 07, 2021 11:31 pm ¦  Forum: Electronics ¦  Topic: Suggestion for COP ¦  Replies: 3 ¦  Views: 176

I'm going to be installing my Megasquirt II standalone and would really like to upgrade to coil on plugs. I have read a few post on the topic but haven't seen any current suggestions. I want something clean and relatively new. I want to retire components that are probably already struggling. Any sug...

I finally started on the JimStim simulator last night. The follow along directions online are making the assembly pretty easy. I am a beginner with just a few hours experience soldering electrical boards and this was a lot easier than expected. The directions say expected 20 minutes of work time to ...

Re: Blown head gasket ?

I would always start with a compression check, and a leak down test to get as much information before you tear anything apart. If you find the compression is uneven across the cylinders it is usually a good indicator that you have a blown headgasket. Make sure you hold the accelerator open when you ...

Re: what size exhaust do you run on turbo?

The best exhaust for a turbo application is no exhaust other than to direct it safely away from parts. For a G10 a 2" exhaust will work as long as you are actually using mandrel bends. It depends a lot on what turbo you are using which will determine your air flow. If you can I would build the downp...

Re: Front lower control arm part numbers and differences Mk2 and Mk3 cars

I did see the listing differences and I'm really not sure if there is any difference. There should not be a difference between a MK2 and MK3 lower control arm. The knuckle and the two bolt rod the control arm goes on are the same. I am looking for new control arms myself. I did read a good write up ...

My 1990 Ford Probe GT turbo curb weight of 2730 lbs bought for $200 and spent $500 in parts puts out 225 hp and over 300 lbs of torque (stock engine). On a straight my Ford will take my Suzuki, but when comes to not being in a straight line my Swift GT turbo will take it every time. The all wheel dr...
