  1. There aren't small cars today because of safety standards. It's not speed that kills you in a crash, it's the deceleration. Ever see a Smart car hit a concrete barricade? When you stop instantly, the front of your skull turns your brain into mush.

    Kevin Desirello, I know him.

    Who are you referring to? Spriso?

    The SR22VET Neo is a cool little engine that people have been putting into the Roadsters. It requires a bit more work though. Pulls hard to a high RPM thanks to the VVEL.

    Your opinions on how things look doesn't matter to me. The stock air filter looks period correct, whether it's ugly or not. It's also functionally superior to the filter that's on the Weber.

    The Weber air filter is ridiculous. It sits there on top of the engine and sucks in all of the heat-soaked air. It's a terrible design.

    I'm about to get my hands on an Offenhauser intake manifold. I'm not sure which version carb it's for. If it's for the stock Hitachi, I'll keep it. If it's for the Weber, I'll think about changing to the Weber. I don't really like the air cleaner setup though. Didn't someone find a way to adapt the original air filter to a Weber?
  8. Won't stop me from putting them on. People are like flies on shit when I drive my 521 around. Fender mirrors won't stop that.

    Pretty much everyone has them.
  10. I meant the turn signals, but thanks for the offer. You have any cool NOS Nissan fender mirrors? I’m looking for the “flag” type.

    Yes, most likely.

    Engine sounds abused. Buyer beware. Was “drift missile” your term or theirs?
  13. I need a set of those Asian spec front lenses with the clear in the center.

    Looks like early S13 judging on the swept under intake manifold.

    Right. Charlie I put a gauge in to accompany the light. I recently put a new oil pump in from an early 90’s D21, so I wanted to see what it was doing.
