    R200 diff

    But it Revs the piss out of it on the highway. Also first gear is useless especially with a 2.4l with fast spooling turbo.. The 3.7's are much better for turbo, 4:11 for N/A. Just my opinion. It all a trade off.

    That's what turbos are for 😲

    R200 diff

    Unless you have 500hp it's not the right diff for you. R160's are so easy to find.

    B-Sedan replica car - building the Orangeboom car

    I couldn't agree more. Safety is absolutely #1. I cringe when I see people installing low back seats. Get some good seats and some good mounts please. This was my buddies car. He spent two years driving it. Second drive he was sitting at a stop light and got rear ended at 60mph by a drunk. Imagine yourself in that car with a low back? He walked away. After seeing his car get drug back to the shop I ripped out my seat mounts and redid them...

    Contact Troy Ermish if you want an aftermarket LSD. He knows what works/fits and how to assemble them correctly.

    Feng Shui (The 510 Experiment)

    After countless hours of research (and buying but never installing the exhaust slash cut pipe) I decided to go with a vacuum pump for crankcase ventilation. There's many advantages to using a pump over intake/turbo vacuum. Clean oil. More Power. No oil/junk in the turbo/intercooler/manifold and intake ports. Lower risk of detonation since the motor isn't breathing crankcase fumes. So after searching high and low and talking with manufacturers I went with the GZ Motorsports Sportsman Pump. https://www.gzmotorsports.com/vacuum-pumps.html They recommend sending the pump in for inspection every 10-15,000 miles which is a long time for this car. People have reported no wear at 20,000 miles. Here's my early christmas present... I started designing the pulley adapter for the crankshaft. I'm using the factory bolt holes in the crank pulley to bolt the adapter. Here's the system installed on a V8. I'm going to get all the bits ready so when I get the car back I just have to make the pump mount, measure for belt and hook up the hoses. Also on the list for the cars return is @DADZSUN new axles and I'm also going to remake my motor mounts to use the stock L series rubber mounts and set the motor at the right height. Stay tuned.

    Feng Shui (The 510 Experiment)

    A couple days ago I received an email from Dave, a teacher at iDEA high school in Tacoma. He leads the Shell Eco Marathon car build team there. He was taking his students to tour Lemay and asked if I could meet them there and tell the students about my car. Him and his son are getting ready to build a 510 for his son which is really cool. It was great to see young kids with such enthusiasm.

    Feng Shui (The 510 Experiment)

    It was about 30 miles west of us luckily. Pretty damn crazy though. I've never in my life heard of a tornado hitting in Washington. Maybe on the east side but not this side of the mountains.. Wild!

    Feng Shui (The 510 Experiment)

    I'm having withdrawals.. I wonder if they'll let me take it out in the parking lot to do some donuts... I can't wait to get this car back so I can finish some details and get driving again!!
