  1. Back In The 626 World (626 Gt)

    I don't plan on keeping my 626 GT, so if you need random stuff feel free to ask. Depending on what the part is I probably have it.
  2. This is news to me, the second gen 4cyl G series is an upgrade over the 88-89 G series?

    Don't know where to post this so I'm bumping this thread. I haven't changed my avatar because I can't get past this: " The file must be smaller than 0.09765625MB. " Even when it IS that impossibly small, I can't get it to accept anything. I don't how how I got it to work before. I'd really like an increase in minimum file size. Used to automatically resize your picture I think, which was fantastic. Last question, are signatures ever coming back? I'd like to list my mods for easy reference.

    I really fail at updating, sorry. Regarding the crash; My best guess, and from what I found, the front left wheel locked up. The caliper somehow lost the top bolt and rotated against the wheel (I think). There was a deep gouge in the rotor. Something locked up. You can hear the one tire squealing in the video, I wasn't braking after I felt it slip, but one wheel was. Stopping power has increased, and it feels okay. However, I still have clapped out drums in the back. I have new rear rotors, bearings and seals waiting. I'll do a rear disk swap very soon. The head gasket blew (or headbolts just stretched) maybe 2 months ago while trying to stay neck and neck with a MKIII supra.. But it made very little impact on 'driveability', as the coolant wasn't mixing yet, and it just drank a jug of coolant every one/two weeks or so. Last saturday it finally mixed and was smoking at idle. I had to get to work on sunday so I drove on it, but monday morning I started the head swap. 10-4 two days, all done. -Good, reman head, new gasket (duh) -ARP head studs -Colt Tri-Flow cam Compressing, removing, and reinstalling dual valve springs with even a pretty good dedicated tool, is a nightmarish hellscape. I never want to do it again. I'm paying a cylinder head shop to do it. Takes me 1 hour to do one cylinder, 3 springs. (compress, remove, swap, compress, reinstall). Those tiny valve keepers can go ahead and #### themselves. Only pictures I took: It's back to full health. But I probably didn't mention the headgasket in the first place.

    The Yonakas were a substantial improvement from the GC+KYBs. I like them very much. It's been a complicated week, this happened friday night: In the middle of the turn, the driver side front wheel locks up and no correcting affected anything. Couldn't save it. Damage: Driver side subframe, hub, control arm, camber plate, caliper, wheel, tire. Replaced: Driver side subframe, hub, control arm. A lot left to do.

    I haven't bumped this since november? Wow... Well I'm not dead.. Recently installed: FMIC, charge piping and intake redone. T-bolt clamps. MSD 6al box w/ tach adapter. Temporary install location. Full 2.5 stainless mandrel exhaust, 2.5 dual outlet Spintech muffler. $15 fog lights painted with Krylon 'stained glass, canary yellow' Yonaka front coilovers installed. Rears going on eventually. 03-05 Mazda 6 front brake upgrade in progress. Almost ready for install. Euro spec two tone side mirrors. Old OEM rotor I had lying around, next to Rockauto special Mazda 6 rotor. (2X drilled slotted rotors for $80) Meh. More to come probably. Lots left to do, a couple things in the works.

    Happy Easter from Domino's, the only damn place open around here...
  9. If a DX parked in my driveway, I could turbo swap it overnight with parts I have lying around. Then just buy oil and coolant. If I had to source them, total cost might be around $400. For "everything", as long as we exclude the GT drivetrain. Which isn't 100% required. Gauges and peripherals extra. A 'really good' GT in my area, could be anywhere from $1-2,500. Haggling would ensue, of course. Still not cheap enough to justify it. A quality DX or even LX could be had for half that. If you're so inclined, spend the savings on the basic GT parts you need. And still have $ left over. I'm going to be biased of course, but turbo swapping a DX is so ridiculously simple, why wouldn't you want to do it? :) My LX-T loves boost. My DD became a very fast DD. Nothing wrong with that.

    Holy crap, that is a CLEAN GT. What is going on with those seats? How rare are those...
  11. You could not pay me any amount of money to redline a 2.2 in any gear, above all 1st. Good god man. The poor engine and trans. With OEM valve springs and head design, there's no power being made up there, not without serious porting and valve train mods. As far as you're problem, could be a spark gap issue. I've stuttered from that. Also ignition timing. You're playing an extremely dangerous game not having a wideband installed. Without knowing AFR, the stuttering could be anything.
  12. Distributor housing. That's what I call it. I have a couple extras I think.

    Thanks man, I appreciate that. It's very tight and sensitive on the road, I think it's a touch too light for how stiff it now is. Someday I'll properly weight balance it. Camera car in the video is my friend Jim in his mark 4 supra, lol. I can kinda keep up with his stock-ish mark 3, but his twin turbo 2JZ walks right past me.
