    fwd to rwd

    A VR4 rear subframe isn't a straight forward bolt in swap in the first place so you'll have plenty of fab work to get a FWD chassis to RWD. Might as well do a solid axle and longitudinal 4g, but I assume you wouldn't be here asking this if you were planning that.

    1991 Summit White Partout *UPDATED 6/14*

    Don't see it listed but figure I'd ask- driver auto seat belt?

    Which rotors for Diamante calipers?

    The rotors for an N/A 3SI are 10.8 outside diameter which is the same as a VR4, same as a 92.5+ DSM, which we can assume means the caliper is identical to a VR4 caliper. I know the caliper is the same, I assume the bracket is the same. The difference comes in what style (banjo vs flare) the...

    WTB: FEAL Galant Coilovers or Bilstein or Koni inserted ready to go struts

    You want Evo bilsteins? I have a set of Evo 9 bilsteins with swift spec R springs I was planning to sell eventually. Had them on 736 and they ride wonderfully but when I 5 lug swapped I had to go to coilovers to fit the new wheels. I have galant top hats on them right now so aside from some...

    I have E39A tein camber plates, do I have more options for coilovers now?

    7/8/9 are all the same, not sure on interchange for other years. You'll still require either SCE adapters for the rear shocks or weld in the galant lower shock mount, but yes the fronts bolt in with some spacers for the knuckle. Just follow the evo coilovers in a 1g/galant guide without drilling...

    I have E39A tein camber plates, do I have more options for coilovers now?

    Yes the galant specific plates allow a direct bolt on front shock from a 1g. I'm using galant cusco plates to run evo 8/9 JIC's up front, but 1g will bolt right on and have proper camber adjustment too.

    No crank/no start

    It sounds like you should pull the starter and inspect the terminals on the back regardless, but yes you can extend the solenoid wire from the 2 wire connector at the air box, it only runs from the connector to the S terminal of the starter. At 190k-ish I began having intermittent starting...

    Swift springs on kybs and agx's.

    It's basically a poor mans GC kit yes. I didn't want the Eibach springs that come with the GC kit so I opted for a cheaper sleeve knowing I was junking the springs that came with them. $45 for the sleeves and $300 for 4 swift springs in the rates/lengths that I wanted. I'm using bilstein inserts...

    Rear caliper replacement

    Performancepartout sent in a big batch of rear AWD calipers for a rebuild and I believe RTM? Or someone posted on dsmtuners that they were rebuilding them again. I have a stock pile of cores I need to send in still but theres a few companies rebuilding them now at least.

    Swift springs on kybs and agx's.

    I don't have any experience running coil springs on dsm/galant stock struts but I do have a home built swift coilover setup on my e30 that would require basically the same approach. This is a common coilover path for e30 guys since the strut tubes are welded to the knuckle. You'd want to cut the...

    Wrong Timing Belt Pulley Installed?

    I've been using gates full timing kits for nearly 15 years without issue. Just use an OEM hydro tensioner. It's like $43 for the gates kit on rock auto.

    Left, push the wire in towards the tool, flip the lock then pull out.

    Scirocco radiator question

    Sorry I misread, we are using the AFCO which uses 1" cores, I assume this uses a 3/4" core if it's saying 1.5" width. The extra width your measuring is probably just end tanks and not actual core thickness. The AFCO core is definitely plenty here in AZ on 115F days it has no issue. I'd think...

    Scirocco radiator question

    I put the same radiator into a customers 2g with the same spal fan. He's an FP black/2.3 stroker and has zero issue cooling the car. I use the same fan on my X-line in 736 with an FP red and it can cool with the A/C on on it's own almost.

    Daily racecar, 736/2000

    Oh i thought you were on a red and that's why you were asking. 260 on a dynojet still sounds low for an HTA at 20lbs. We made 325 on 21lbs on a stock 6 bolt with intercooler and exhaust with a V1 HTA68. Car trapped 118? IIRC. Who tuned it?
