Pics of an axle oil seal before and after install... Really? I can understand pics of sweet turbos and such, but you really take pics of EVERYTHING.

So what is the reason for the stainless allen-head bolts all over? The ones behind the timing cover won't be seen, so I can't imagine it's for aesthetics. That would annoy the shit out of me everytime I had to grab something other than the normal sockets I'm used to for working on the car. I've never understood why people change out factory bolts for those. I guess I just don't think they look any better.

BTW, which slave did you put on your car? Red piston or green piston? I just went through this and while my original OE slave had the larger green one, it was creating disengagement issues. The red piston will allow for more rod travel, which is what heavier clutches need. Something you may wanna check before you get too far...

Yeah I love pics, plus this is the cars first build so I wanna have lots of pics to show for this.

As for the stainless bolts, I didn't get them for visual appeal, I got them because I originally didn't have all the correct bolts for that old pan, and JNZ tuning said they offer those type for the oil Pan so I was like ok let's add those to the list, I also got some similar ones with neoprene for the valve cover.

As for the rod in the slave, I noticed that the new one was a bit shorter, so to save myself the hassle I swapped the old one in the new slave which is longer.

I guess that makes sense for the bolts since you didn't have the stockers.

I wasn't talking about the slave rod. I'm talking about the piston inside the slave itself.

Oh ok well whichever color comes with the OEM slave for a 91 GVR4 is the one i bought. I didn't get a chance to see what color the piston was.

It's probably the green piston then. You can pull the boot back a tad to see. If it works, great. If you have disengagement issues, I'd start there.

Quoting GSX_TC:

Ah shit I forgot about those! Thanks for pointing that out man, I doubt I'll be able to get those in time so I maybe have to use my stock ones till I get back.




Don't chance it. I actually learned of those longer arp bolts on tooners cause some guy had his stock bolts shear off or back out because they are too short with the fluidampr. Don't forget to use blue loctite on them.

Either next day air them or go to the hardware store and get some longer ones. Or raid your nut/bolt bin and find some oem ones that are longer.

And 1050cc injectors are a waste for e85 for medium to bigger size turbos as you will be at max IDC in the low twenty psi range. You will be looking at trading those for 1650 or bigger in no time.

There's just no time man, plus I don't any money in my account anymore.

As for the 1050's yeah those will most likely go back on my 1g then I'll go bigger on the VR4 maybe some blue max's or something.

Hey Mike the build looks great. I've thrown in the towel on mine. I'm trying to be too nit picky and am not going to have the car ready in time. I hope you get yours finished in time to get to the shootout.

Awe man I'm sorry to hear that Brett, well if it's consolation my other friend from Cali couldn't go either, looks like there might not be as many GVR4's there as I thought. Hopefully there will be more then last year though =)

Ok mark, just checked both slaves and the old one had a green piston and the new one is a red piston. So hopefully it'll be better.

I just threw the old OEM crank pulley back on, I'm REALLY behind on time here, now all of a sudden the oil feed I have isn't the correct one, the 35R feed requires a very specific one which I don't have, also due to this setup I now have to run a half sized radiator, this is becoming such a headache man.

Too many new parts, too little time. I know it would be kick ass to get all these goodies in your car prior to the shootout, but would you have enough time to get a proper shakedown to make it reliable so you aren't junking a lot of quality parts? You are a brave soul... I have the same problem when I get new parts, I just want to throw them on and feel the difference. I think it would be wise to go small (e316g, safe tune and such...) so you can make it to the shootout and back. my $.02. I do envy this build though. I am pulling for you!!

Perhaps get a good nights sleep, then check it over backwards, like proof reading. It sounds like this car is gonna be quite an animal... Good luck Mike! So I bet we will see a bunch of engine pics from you rather than hard parking ones lol. Keep it up!
