lol.. thats crazy. Don't the nismo mounts make your engine sit a bit higher too?

Yeah they make it sit higher, that's why I had to get my downpipe modified so it doesn't hit the underbody LOL.

i don't see what the issue is with these bulbs. If they are made for H4 headlights they should act like stock replacements right?

i think they are just brighter so cutoff and whatever is all the same. We sell some non-HID xenon replacement bulbs at Pep boys and they are supposed to be brighter or something.

H4's are completely different than H3's. H3's are for foglights.

yeah H3's are tiny with a little wire. Razi is gonna get some xenon bulbs for his car and he wanted to know what size, and basically if they were gonna work.

Wow... I'm jealous of your car. I hope to one day buy a DOHC KA and boost it. Any videos/sound clips?

Only thing about recirculating off the hotpipe is, your putting air that is "hotter" back into your intake, i guess it doesnt matter but i always put my bov on the cold pipe. Razi if you want to hear your turbo more, your going about it all wrong, turn up the boost dont dynamat your trunk...geez.

The day I started it up and got it running.I turned onto an empty corner of the street and I hit the gas and I heard it spool, suck in air and pull me fairly quickly.

Then I pulled over next to my house and parked it, then I thought "Holy smokes I'm turbocharged" . And I sat in my car and walked around it for like 10 minutes, with my mind blown.

Hehe thanks vroom_chirp, any plans for your current 240?
lol your reaction sounds alot like what i would have felt like hah ha.

Ill post up once i get some stuff rollin, but im just keeping things clean and simple .

Good stuff razi, but on a bad note this is pressuring me to do the same and turbo my ka already. I mean I only have 86k on my 92 ka and I have had it since 60k. The previous owner babied the car, I heard he got tickets on the highway for going to SLOW!

dammit, now I have to save up for a turbo setup along with all my other dreams.....

Second that. Keep the stock look but clean it up. Your engine bay will look much better.

+1 for a very nicely done and clean looking setup.

I might try to clean up a lot of the vacuum lines when I have time.

Oh, I was talking about more along the lines of aero.

Give me 30 minutes guys, I just put in my Koyo radiator and it's awesome!I got it from RacetechPerformance.com, they are about a 30 minute drive from me.They hooked me up well.They are in Diamond Bar, CACheck em out, they had good customer service and they were nice people.They had a deal to give you free H4 bulbs with a purchase of a radiator, ask em for it. They are out of stock though, so you gotta wait till the end of the month for the bulbs.

Now somebody donate me a cool radiator cap.

Feels good. I'm getting the JDM TYTE bov flutter...not good. I need to loosen up the bov spring a bit.

Anyone know what the good oil pressure readings during cruising and idle?I get around 25 at idle, and 50 at cruising around 2-3k rpms

I'm getting around 180 degrees during cruising for water temps.I used to think 210 was normal. LOLOL
