    Am I the only one who thinks that electric fans are a downgrade?

    I have seen burned fan relays, melted wiring jobs, seized up fan motors, fans with no thermostatic switch or speed control, engines that overheat because the electric fans don't pull enough air, and a bunch of other problems..... A good old clutch fan will keep your engine cool while...

    Cool junk yard finds! Seatbelts for aftermarket seats

    I put in some Sparco Torino II seats and realized that I really hate the way the stock seatbelt receptacle mounts to the seat more then the floor. So I looked around and saw that all the 80's Toyotas used the same size seatbelt latch. I found the 1982 Celica seatbelts mount to the floor on a...

    OMG!!! 300+ TX2k8 PICS!!!

    Man this was a fun trip! Everybody was so cool and I met a bunch of great people from the forum! I stayed with Suprahero and Da89soup, they were nice enough to offer me the couch in their room for free because they felt bad that I had to pay $800 for airfare! I had a rum and coke courtesy of...

    We got love for you GE's too!

    I know this is not the for sale section, but I wanted to show a new item we are making for W58 transmissions, it's the SS clutch line. NA owners deserve to have good clutch feel just like the turbo guys!

    Pick my new logo!

    We narrowed it down to these, but after staring at them for hours it's hard to tell which one I like most. Which font and which logo would be your choice?

    New 7m fuel dampener bypass hose

    It will improve fuel flow for people making increased horsepower using a Walbro or MK4 fuel pump at higher fuel pressures then stock. The teflon lined ss hose will last for many years. Replaces all this! Eliminates 3 banjo fittings, and goes straight from the fuel hardline under...

    Better placement for the 7m oil dipstick

    We were pulling a 7m engine out of a mk3 to do a 1jz swap yesterday, and thinking of some better places to have an oil dipstick then in the block. When we removed the engine oil plug, about 1 quart came out. Where did the rest of the oil go? When we removed the lower ic pipe, about 1.5...

    XTD Clutch scam!

    Please skip ahead to post #163 for updated information. We are having clutches made for us by Action Clutch. They make us an upgraded pressure plate that is 40% heavier spring pressure then stock. Recently, someone brought to my attention the they could buy the "same thing" on Ebay for over...

    External oil pressure regulator?

    I was talking about 7m oil pumps and oil pressure yesterday with Andy, we both think the oiling system on the 7m could be improved. We were throwing ideas around and talking about how shimming the oil pump seems to give different results on different engines. I thought maybe an external...

    http://www.cardomain.net/ride/2579020 The first 5 pics Jose and I took, but the one that I really noticed was the first pic, he says it is of him installing his forged pistons, when in fact that pic is me installing my forged pistons. :biglaugh: The pic of the crank and the bearings was...

    Name this turbo

    I heard it might be a Supra Sport turbo, but it has no markings other then it looks like it says .60ar on the compressor housing and it has 5152E enscribed on the compressor outlet. It has the CT26 flange inlet and outlet. It looks brand new because I just had it rebuilt.
