Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Recommended Posts

in my opinion, if you have to ask, neither... for something as involved as building up something like this would you have to know exactly what you want

Good point, thank you

I should say, some of those toyota motors suggest double ground spark plugs.

So this weekend will (hopefully) be the end of the bench seat to buckets conversion. Gonna go look at some seats and hopefully get at least the driver's seat. Also finally getting the steelies from my buddy and might even paint them next week (maybe. might just rock em how they are). Depends on how much I wind up giving a crap. They're not in too bad of shape). Much excite. Hopefully the Bravada I go to get them out of still has all its doors and windows intact and closed. That's something thats freaking stupid, let me rant about that. If you've gone to the trouble to pull something from the interior of a vehicle in the yard, try and keep the window closed and not knock it halfway down its track and for fucks sake, close the god damn door after you're done (assuming it can. 8 times out of 10 it does close, so freaking close it. You're give a shit level is high enough to where you can be bothered to close the door after you're done so the rain does not mold the seats. However I do understand that there are such things as leaky roofs. One seat had fallen victim  a fucked seal around the luggage rack and water ruined the head liner and after that, the seat. But still, even so close the freaking doors people.

Have you looked into Colorado seats at all? They have leather versions. Might bolt in with a few brackets. Also have heated seats

No I haven't. The local yard doesn't have any colorados at all. I might look into that though. It's based on an entirely different chassis/cab though but I'll look into that. Good ideal. The bravada's had leather/power doodads but no butt warmers from what I can tell.

@vetali My god they're exactly the same as far as bench seats go, just on different rails.  :blink:

 

EDIT: Apperently the colorado uses the same rails as the H3 so that's another option for just having to convert the rails...

I suggest the Colorado ones unless you want something to hold you from sliding around. They're pretty flat but good feeling leather. I worked on one a few days back and remembered that you were looking for leather seats.

That's about how the seats I'm hoping to get are. Here's hoping they'll be in good shape when I go to look at them tomorrow.  :unsure:

Local yard here has used tires for about $230 for all terrains 235/75/15 that my buddy got with 80% tread left. They were actually on the wheels I'm getting from him.

@bob345 why not a 2jz swap for your e46? they're pretty common for e46s so you could get some parts for it at relatively low prices, and also, to me, it would sound better.

cheaper than 1 tire for a e39 m5 xD

For what I do, I might as well get new ones. They are so cheap anyway. Summer tires are already a super rare site here, everyone is using cheap all-seasons. So it might actually be hard to come across such a small summer tire that I need.

I'm gonna have to scour the local junkyard though for some 15" (5.5-6.5 in. Wide) steelies lol

I also really need to figure out what the widest tire I can fit is. I want every single mm of grip I can get lol

Maybe I will finally defeat the almighty old guy in the 90's Mazda protege in the H stock class xD

What's stock size? How much rub do you want? Also be ready to pay $25 a wheel. That's what my local yard charges and they're pretty good.

I have till march to get these tires and stuff guys so I'm not in a rush, so if you guys could keep your eyes peeled for free or ludicrously cheap 15 or 16" rims around 6" wide or so for me that would be great. Need 4 though. Not going to run two different sets of two unless they are all black steelies or something. Having two different rims would erk me lol

Stock size is 185/65R14. I want no rub. Biggest size I have confirmed so far is 195 wide... But if I could fit a 205 (doubtful) or even a 215 (highly doubtful) in there that would be amazing..

maybe. we'll see how the stock one does. It's my parent's vehicle, so I don't wanna put money into it, and they don't really want to put money into anything that doesn't affect MPGs. :/

You might be able to swing 205/50? Stock s10 size is 205/50/15 but you can go up to 235/75/15 with just a haaaiiiiiiirrr of rub. (you litterally take a dremal with a sanding wheel and trim 2mm off the bottom of the inner fender and its gone from what I read. I'll be going to 225/75/15 so I don't have to do that.

It'll help with MPGs. Yeah that's what sway bars do. Keep the gas tank level so your molecules don't get shifted as much making the octanes more reactive.
