The tech section use to be that tech now has turned into well something else. Maybe boredom of the old guys and inexperience from new members not sure I guess every board goes through its stages. So I'm starting a technically finder thread, no you don't get a lollipop and no you don't get a star only JNR gets those.

I want this to become something like the picture thread in anything goes. BUT I want two parts.
1) I want the part you found either custom made by a guy like me in his own shop or the company and 2) where you heard about it saw it used, could be a you tube or street fire video, ebay ad but would rather be a awesome make you want to cry or grow wood build thread. If you alienate yourself to one type of car its very very hard to learn and think outside the box. Look at the GN world with a ton of the same mods on every car and the lightning trucks. The trucks are just now realizing you can use alcohol injection, hello WWII was over in 45. The Mustangs ran the stuff then doesn't anyone watch discovery channel and drive a truck.

Remember the v10 in a box old school M3 or the lime green 240, or the guy in Greece that showed the Evo board that the US isn't the only place building cars..... I want builds like that

Like the link below...... Found a company that does carbon fiber prop shafts as well as some sick metal ones. yea sexy, don't ask how much because I don't know but here it is part 1) click me
and
part 2) RB30 GTR full carbon fiber monster build..........Enjoy


Yea yea I know its not a VR4 and no shit we can't get a GTr in the country except the trans eating 350/370z look alike cars but the parts found in this thread could be used with the knowledge gained. I know I'm not the only one that has thought of a tubular subframe and inconnel headers and exhaust and others may have never thought of custom lines being crimped instead of full AN stuff. There's some true genius going into this skyline and with enough of these monster builds posted maybe some of us old crusties could show more interest because I for one get bored. I bet money I've been building cars longer than alot of you guys have been alive and there some on here before I was alive. I use to build cars to go fast now just do cool projects to say I did. If the economy was better I'd probably dump all the parts floating in the garage and just build a car or two a year and call it good. But could build two now days and sit on two and go hungry for 4 or 6 years.

Now go do work, find cool threads mitsubishi or go karts I don't care.

Exactly what I'm looking for

I knew they had a supra trans adapter but not a t56 one. Now that hooked to a mastershift would be killer.

And yes they have a box that will work for a VR4 click me

Watch the other videos as well.

I last I heard Bill was working on a T-5 adapter, a bit cheaper than trying to spend 3k on a T56.

Someone help me out here. Who was the company that built the sick Escort Cosworth car with the modified Skyline transmission. Remember the Skyline transmission runs essentially as a RWD unit and becomes AWD if it detects slip. Well these guys (Renworth or something) hacked the electronics so the car launched in all wheel drive and went back to rear wheel drive as it gained traction to avoid parasitic loss in the drive train. Pretty neat.

so I just read 45 pgs of nissan BS just to find out the project isnt done! Argh!

what are torrents? most of the english I get, but thats one of the word I wasnt sure what they meant.

hows the process for making an inconel manifold over a regular stainless one? are the gains that much better? isnt it just really light? is it just because a track car needs to get lite? 5 lbs difference?

I like where this is going though.

625 inconel has a density of 8.44 g/cubic cm
316 stainless has a density of 8 g/cubic cm

tech data for 625
tech data for 316 stainless

But the temp range it lives is much higher, stuff retains like 75% of is static room temp strength at 1200 degrees because its parent/base metal is nickel. Yield strength on this stuff is incredible. Everyone would use this on exhaust if they could but it just comes down to dollars. Its like 8 or 10 times more expensive than stainless. Heat pulls carbon from steel this is why headers and turbine housings crack. One of the reasons they use this just weight by the numbers up top I used it doesn't look like much different but if you build a 316 header with sch40 or sch10 its heavy where you can build the same thing from inconel and the wall thickness is like .030 or thinner. I have a piece of a turbine exhaust in the shop I've had forever thats inconel, weights a few ounces and is 3 or 3.5 inch diameter where one weld bend elbow for a header tube is heavier and has a wall thickness of about .110 or so.

One of a few threads over on Sigma-Galant.com that I have been referring back to for ideas on accomplishing my swap into the Coupe. This car requires a little more modding in certain areas than I do, because the 1st gen Galants had a shorter front end than the 2nd gens.

Good idea for a thread.

At the same time, don't forget to look under rocks. Lotta guys on here spend weeks obsessing over which timing belt or studs to buy for their 99% street-driven projects when there are folks out there beating the ever-lovin' shit outta these cars off road, swapping out rod/main bearings and blown head gaskets in dirt parking lots, then beating on them some more.

I love the bell housing link though. That's tits. I've been half tempted to turn the mill sideways, bolt up a Toyota rear end, and start messing with gearing.

A little sustainability feedback on this - genuinely - solid thread idea? Regular threads with specific themes. Let's not be afraid to get picky with this shit.

Examples:
Let's see who can find the most insane remote reservoir shock setup (then talk about how we might adapt it to our cars).
What's the simplest cooling system setup you can find? What can we learn from it?

Press on.

Ever watch the movie Contact? You sit there, and sit there, and sit there, and then, like four hours later, you find out the alien is her goddamned father.
And so it is with this Rotary. You sit there, and sit there, and sit there, and then, like 20 pages later, dude gets bored with it and parts it out.

I hope the old school carbon fiber post is less soul-sucking.
