    I need some help please

    Id try pulling plug wire one at a time. One that doesnt change how it runs is a dead cylinder. So then check spark plug gap/condition and if firing with it out of head. Next ck valves on that cyl. Might try(for diag purposes) disconnecting exh coil. Then see how runs.

    L-20-B exhaust manifold to downpipe leak

    Tightening up nuts will likely break a stud off. Pull it apart wire wheel pipe and collector. Replace the hardware too. Make sure flange/ring isnt warped or bent,otherwise may not clamp right

    KA24DE vs SR20DET realistic price of swap

    Ka's bit easier to find parts and work on. But i well say sr is lighter, which might help with cornering. Ka'd the 521 and now corners like shit. Wieght only diff i can think of. 300hp if u can get it to hook up would a monster. My swap ran close to 2k with rebuilding the ka24e. its was wore the fuck out. Cheap ka's r always out there,but id always find them when i was broke

    82 720 very low oil pressure

    Ka pump, if not from dealer. Not always the actual ka pump. Aftermarkets just sell up stock Lseries pumps for everything.

    82 720 very low oil pressure

    Looks like maybe a piece of gusset/rib. Doesnt look machined,but not in itself ur issue. Did i miss it,but what oil and weight r u using?

    Speedometer pinion assembly

    I well say,using turn by turn gps just makes u stupid. I use google maps,just i did with paper ones. This way helps u learn the area ur in. My wife uses turn by turn and makes wrong turns. She cant go anywhere out of town without,even places she has been several times

    Speedometer pinion assembly

    Well my reason for aftermarket gauges was more bout being able to them at night. Gps speedo just took out all the guess work. 521's with zx trans in them dont have much room to connect the cable it. Cable worn out every couple yrs.

    Speedometer pinion assembly

    Just get a gps speedo gauge,lol. No more guessing,broken cable or pinion gear. Or just use phone with gps app and leave stock setup be.

    Pinging under power and drive train Q's

    Shaved head may up compression ratio to a degree. Higher octane helps reduce pinging. Too advanced timing adds to pinging. Verify running temp with temp gun or other quality device. Do this before any thing else, Oem gauge could b off. As they say,check the stupid shit first. Otherwise you well just make things worse,ie "melted head"
