Re: Build thread

The vents being at the back is what made me think it was an induction hood. They usually have the vents at the back to draw in high pressure air from where the windshield meets the hood. HPR track days are easy to get, the Emich one just has extra allure with the low price so it's madness. They usua...

Re: The S2000

That sucks about the fender, the Nitto tires I put on mine did that, I think due to how tall they were for their advertised size. Also the Nitto were super quiet in a corner until you had already pushed too hard, there was very little audible warning of slip. I hope the alternator solves the gremlin...

Re: Build thread

That motor mount bolt would worry me, I know you don't wanna pull the pan again but I would want to put a Timesert in there for peace of mind! I thought your hood was an "Induction style" I guess it's been awhile since I saw it. I guess either way it would cool the coils weather it is pull...

Re: Build thread

What day are you going to the track? I was thinking about going to the Emich one if I have my crap together by then, It is always a scary event, But can't beat the price.

Re: The Ẽfini 7

My mounts seemed fine at install. I think it is just that the engine mounts all the way back on the rear iron and I'm seeing the coolant cap that mounts off the front of the cover plate so just a tiny flex in the engine mount is like a 1" bob at the front.

Re: The Ẽfini 7

Made the headlight covers red and put the new hood on. It's a RE-amemiya AD-9 replica made by CarbonMiata. Fitment it's really good. Had to trim for the tower brace and air box but that is typical with this style hood as the center sits very low. I like it so far but it is a little worrisome to be a...

Re: The Ẽfini 7

Well I finally got time to work on the car with the Body tech. It is back on the road and breakin' necks!! Needs some paint and I have a vented hood to put on. Just good to have it driveable again.

Re: A VW for DW

Its gone now, hope I learned from that to better research a car before buyi...

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

Not installed yet, well into the wiring process, just some light fixture wiring left which is super tedious and requires so many trips up and down the ladder it is exhausting just thinking about it! Ordered tile today and water heater, money is running thin but I'm running out of things to buy also,...

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

I got the slab poured and final measurements for the doors. I'm gonna call Clopay today and ask about the highlift option as all the local dealers seem to know nothing.

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

Been messing around online mostly and the best Iv'e found so far are Clopay doors, but when you go through the online door build it won't option high lift tracks unless you select "commercial doors" I can't see why it would make any difference though.
