Something with our new server.
If a thread exceeds a certain amount of pages, it lags the server.
It's all in the process of being sorted out. :D

I sent it to him awhile back. Brian sends me all kinds of crazy pics (all kinds.... :inout: ) whenever he visits the bong. =p j/k WD
Thanks Hitman for the continuance! Btw, all these turbo issues you KA-Ters are having, what's that about? I've never had a single problem with my turbo on the SR. I guess maybe it's the manifold designs that are out there for the KA :gotme

I think it's the crappy hardware our stuff comes with, they all vibrate loose in like a week.
I don't think Spooled has any of these problems, he doesn't use Megan racing manifolds or anything I think.

That's what I was thinking. Back when the SOHC died on me and I was thinking of just rebuild and turbo it (it had already been crappily rebuilt once by the previous owner), I had wondered about the kit JGS offers http://www.jgstools.com/turbo/index2.html It looked pretty good (quality) and I wanted a log style manifold for the reasons JGS outlines further down the page. It's also why I'll keep my SR's stock manifold and just have it extrude honed for better flow in the future.

I sort of want to get a SR manifold and cut off the flanges and weld on KA ones.
Then I can put on the stock heatshield and be an epic sleeper. :P

1st page wooooo!

I noticed that the thread had been moved to the KA-T section, I tried looking for it the other day without being logged in and had a wtf moment.

In response to the manifold stuff, I didn't have lock washers on the turbo side because the studs weren't long enough to put a washer and a nut on the bottom. When I weld them in it should give me enough room underneath for washers as well.

Here's a short video from this weekend, the fun part of the track was out of view so I didn't get very much footage.

P.S. Anyone know of any cheap copper t2 gaskets? I'm most likely going to get the SCE one, it's like 11 bucks with 8 dollar shipping, I'm just wondering if there are any other cheaper ones. I'm still running the homemade gasket from Lowes if anyone remembers the write-up I posted in the original KA vs KAT thread haha.

chris,
you can make a copper gasket pretty easy. most gutter/heating places will have scraps laying around you could snag. then just sketch it out and start cutting. i didnt see the writeup.

ps that is a HUGE a** STICKER lol
