  1. Pertronix sells a coil to match their setup so you don't need a ballast resistor. I have that combo on my VW bus. Some places sell it together even.
  2. Welp... I just bought this car. I now own a sports car!
  3. Did you ever get the ECU issue figured out? Maybe I missed it.
  4. post a picture of the axles
  5. Here are a couple pics I took. Turns out I need to take way more! Carter at the track trying to fix our fueling issue. more fixing Removing the old cage. The new one sure is nice! Sorry Steve my new neighbor has a tube bender so we don't need your help any more. I think will will think of something you can help us with ūüôā door bar. Hmmm something new coming with the steering too!
  6. My NA SR hits 10's at full throttle at the lower RPM's then goes into the 11's. Full throttle is never above 12 and it's a stock ECU NA motor.
  7. You can use the stock mounts. Don't buy the solid mounts you will be hating life.
  8. Time Left: 9 days and 11 hours

  9. Yeah we need an update. Also what clutch and flywheel did you use?
  10. I new if I searched I would find the answer..... Dang I just wanted to sneak the KA24E head on my D21 Z24 just to get a little more power until I motor swap it. Guess I will just have to wait for more power.
  11. No feel comparison at all. I have a 86 power rack with a zillion miles on it in one of my 510's that has stock tie rods and ball joints. It feels tighter then any box car I've owned or driven. Anyone who says the "band aids" will make the box feel the same is a liar. Yeah it's a pain to keep an L with our kit. Sam did it. A 1980 510 oil pan and a header with a hug dent in it allowed it to work.
  12. I have a 510 with Sr20det I need help with wiring  the factory tachometer with the red needle

    O boy I'm close!!! Got the RWD trans almost modified. Machined the 3/8" thickness of the adapter off the bell. I think it would have worked without it but I wanted maximum spline engagement on the clutch disk. I need to mount a slave cylinder and it's done! My disk came in today too! I "machined" the flywheel to, with a sharpening stone. It's ready for some clutch kicks. Used a RWD exhaust manifold I got from my old buddy Spreadburry. He and some other pointed out the DE exhaust manifold doesn't line up with the VE exhaust ports. To me it looked close enough. Maybe not for the race engines he builds but it's good enough for my back yard builds. Added the water return line like the S14/15 Gotta mod the drain. Waist gate didn't work in the RWD layout. So I built a sweetgoogamoo new bracket. Next I had to sort out the water lines. Which looked way harder than it ended up being. I just made a bracket to hold the thermostat housing and welded up some sort of manifold. The factory metal is not easy to tig weld. Luke told me to use stainless filler rod. It did help, actually a lot!!! Here is the factory location on the back of the head. So many hoses!! The idea. Welding fun.... Still looks like a mess. Now it's looking close!!! It's funny because at the beginning it looked like such a mess compared to a S chassis SR. Now it looks so much cleaner!!! Just those 2 170 degree hoses and the oil cooler hoses.
