Talked to the ECU man Eric.
He's great, I see why everyone likes him quickly.
Got the rest of the parts on the way I need to completely restore my ECU!
The bank will tell me what clutch I can get, loan triple plate, no loan clutch budget is nil.
Next month if no loan I will get a stage 2 again, drop it in, do 60k svc.
If I get loan triple plate clutch, engine block blueprint +50 hone for bigger pistons&rings.
Also will try to get the whole rotating assembly balanced (crank,rods,pistons,harmonic)
How much HP/TQ do you think 50 over will add? Not a lot I'm guessing...
This is my first car to deserve an engine rebuild, any tips would be appreciated.
I can only afford to build the block at this point, yes it's probably stupid, but idk.
I may go ahead and port the lower intake manifold, how far is it safe to do so w/o crack?
If I port the lower intake I guess I will need to remove some of the gasket?
I know the clutch was not properly adjusted, I think this caused it so slip the whole high speed run causing clutch failure. The clutch company said they're not made for that speed, not even stage 4 racing clutch. I was told to explore the top end double or triple.
I don't mind taking some away from the DD for race, as long as I can operate it still.
The only thing I wouldn't want clutch wise is an on off switch like clutch.
It says this clutch operates very similar to stock clutch with faster gear changes.
lol- Dbomb- I found racing wipers on ebay that angle the air just right to give 220! -jk
If I get the triple and I don't like it I'm trying southbend next per your rec. VR3.9
Tranny and TC I'm pretty sure are 25 spline, and crank pretty sure forged.
It's a 93, those are all standard in 93 execept for early early 93 right?
I like this TC brace idea, I've had some strange clunking after trans since poly mounts, might be TC movement now that I think of it. TC brace will stop this/exploding?
I have to creep out in 1st, pull 1st out to hit 2nd at a decent rev, same with all others, I have to pull gears out farther to have enough momentum/high enough rev in next gear to not slip. Any extra gas or to high of a gear and it revs jump with no go.
Clutch pedal is adjusted for max bite, no clutch left to bite.
I limped it to my bank and asked for a personal loan for the best clutch. Answer today!
My left foot skill I thought was very good, I can drive manual better than most I've met except my mechanic. However AWD is quite a bit diff, so is moving a heavy car off the line vs moving a lightweight car off the line. Talked to several people that said that AWD burns clutches a LOT faster than 2WD, basically it's like tow duty with the weight/AWD.
Is double clutching better or worse on the clutch/transmission.
Sometimes it seems to really appreciate it & perfectly sync quickly, but sometimes the trans clunks like it slowed too much/was jarred & was expecting a non- dc.
Oh, last q, sorry. (hate to ask about ebay again but it's in my price range CHEAP)
Are eBay MBCs and FPRs safe to get?
Would a FPR help in my position or just wait till I have other fuel upgrades first?
