I'm sorry I realize how dumb I sound asking semi-ricer boy questions.
Thanks for pointing me in the grounded & right direction, it's appreciated.
I do understand that as smart as I am, there is lots more to learn.
Sorry for being frustratingly half in a video game world on you guys.
I love your my new realistic goal of 340awhp, so more accurate est is 280 or so now?
Lucas oil is in my transmission, engine, and transfer case. I love it because it stays.
Another reason I love lucas, my TC has run near dry or dry a couple times, lucas saved.
Also, since putting in lucas into several engines, I have not had any more engine failures.
I do agree that it is probably not the ideal fluid to be running, it is semi-thick cold esp.
I wouldn't really use ebay but they got me with billmelater.
I figured I was chancing it with the ebay parts. I usually get pretty good luck with parts I find, some of them are junk. It's hit and miss, but mostly I'm winning.
My plug wires OML, never heard of them either, 10MM wires, they've held up very well.
Pulstar IR plugs seem to be the only plug maker to actually improve on the technology.
Accel is a common brand, knock off K&N, it's a drop in box, looks more street legal.
Mounts are a great story:
My mounts were from a seller on ebay, solid poly all 4, cheaper than oem, stronger.
They have no brand, but the seller was nice enough to rush my order ahead of 7 others, custom pour what I wanted that day, 2nd day ship it for no cost over 5-7day.
As if all that wern't great enough, when I sent my old mounts in for a core refund I got a big suprise. I didn't get the $80 core refund, they sent me the full $350 I think it was back. I about had a heart attack and asked if they meant to do that b/c if not I would return the other than core money. I got an email back: Enjoy your mounts & core refund!
Such great people, great mounts, buy, well worth what they were asking.
What I have found is that a lot of the smaller companies most haven't heard of are making great products trying to build their name. I know several large companies that produce such volume that by penny pinching quality degrades.
This car needs a more talented driver than I was when I first got it.
We've been working with each other though, I'm learning for sure.
I just want a VR4 that if I bring it so a VR4 meet at some point won't get laughed at.
A well maintained, respectable, realiable, decent mileage with your foot out of it DD.
I won't be at the front of the pack, but I won't be last either!
I'd really love to see your cars, have you guys see mine, and get more ideas.
I, like an idiot, mangled my ABS, 150-50 too fast messed something up.
Couple of dumb questions sorry:
using diagnostic connector what is the ABS computer pin?
Thinking I may have weirded out a wheel speed sensor, G sensor tested good.
If somone could drop me a link to ABS diagnostics pin/codes that'd b great, I found it once, searched and searched and for some reason can't find again.
I think I finally got my suspension 'ghosts' fixed, the ECS has been strange, off and on.
I read up on it and I'm going to check the strut cap.
ECS was blinking non stop saying no problems after caps were changed in it.
Suspension still failed to stay in tour mode defaulting to sport.
One day it failed, I left the car running sport light lit when I had it in tour.
Quickly checked the diagnostic connector and it said front left problem.
The wiring on top driver's strut correct? I know my ECS computer is good, it's rebuilt.
Externally it looks ok, removed the connector it's clean, cleaned connections anyway.
Do the caps just pop off with a flat screwdriver?
Will the problem be obvious?
Very sorry I'm such a huge moron and so long winded, I'm actually trying to listen and learn more than speak.
