  1. You left out what the clunk was!! ?

    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.
  5. I use Motul 90PA LSD Oil for my Subaru Clutch Packs.
  6. 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...
  7. Contact Troy Ermish if you want an aftermarket LSD. He knows what works/fits and how to assemble them correctly.
  8. 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.
  9. Looks well sorted! Nice buy! I went and visited my car this week as she sits out the winter in a nice and warm place ?
  10. Get that bitch on the road!
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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!!
  14. Lame. I guess I missed my chance to go. I'll mark my calendar for Blue Lake.
  15. You're welcome https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/pts/d/datsun-rlongnose-lsd/6763332155.html
  16. That's Frank's phone number on the add.
  17. Thank you! I can't wait to get her back so I can finish her up!
  18. Unless it's really canceled??....
  19. I WILL be there this year. If my car breaks down on the drive I'll tow the fucking thing the rest of the way ? I purposely set the end date for Lemay so I can have the car end of March, that way I can redo the engine mounts and fix some items way before Canby!
  20. The first one has a build thread on here somewhere. Lots of money in that car but who knows how it actually drives. Not sure I'd buy a car that has been ran for years with no air cleaners. Just shows the previous owners cared more about looks then taking care of the car. Second one looks setup but no dash/heater. More of a race car then a street car. Depends on what your needs are. I doubt either would make a good daily driver.
  21. Let me know and we'll meet there! It's a pretty neat place and I'm sure the Tuner exhibit will be badass! They wanted my 510 cause they said the 510 was "the car that started the tuner craze". It really was! I'm hoping mine gets the spotlight ?
  22. I'm pretty stoked! Another bit of good news!! My 510 has been chosen to be in the Tuner Exhibit at Lemay Auto Museum. It's starts in November. My car will be there until April. Can't believe it came from a pile of shit to a museum display piece ?? I will miss her a ton but I can visit when ever I want and I'll have her back by car show/autocross season next summer. I also have the 914 to cut up and fix during the winter. That should be on the road by summer also. I'll let the wifey drive the Porsche to the shows and I'll drive the 510 ? I have to make the Porsche "daily drivable" per her instructions. No race car disguised as a show car ?
