hey where do you get the smaller battery?
just checked it out..Like the title states anybody know if the OEM pilot bearing is symetrical? I mean is one side rounded on the edge & the other have burr?
I ask because I can get my tranny slid up through the gears up to the bearing & then it stops & I can't get my transmission to go any further no matter what. I'm thinking that maybe one of my techs pressed it in upside down, because I can feel a ridge on the closest side.
That's Good News!I may have you & every other member out there that wants that differential mount covered.
It looks like I will be sending my KPR differential mount to [email protected] to replicate it for sale to the rest of the community. :bowdown:
I will keep you & everyone else posted on the progress.
KPR mount boxed up & ready to ship to [email protected]
Still running on stock battery since I can't decide on which aftermarket to go with yet. pretty sure it will be a Braille, but just not sure what model will put out enough cranking amps yet be the lightest.hey where do you get the smaller battery?
**** (not at you), but thanks. I can't catch a break! I realigned clutch gears with the better tool & called my pop over to pick up where we left off last time. We slid the tranny up only to be stopped about an inch away by something that keeps catching in the center that will not allow it to go in any further. I can even screw a few of the bolts in that hold the tranny to the engine, but I'm not willling to put it in that way. My dad has been doing this 50yrs & said he has never seen one not want to get back together this badly. I can go around to the crank & turn it easily to a poiint, then it gets diffficult for a while & then easy again.just checked it out..
looks to be the same on both sides
Yes it is good news. This is a highly desired item that will be rather inexpensive considering its size & simplicity. Everybody will want one. I believe that they probably have had mine for almost a week now taking measurements. I hope thiers turns ous even better as I will run it in lieu of the KPR if that's the case.That's Good News!
Yeah me too, I have to work twice as hard as the avg Joe to get the same results. But I'm determineded to build this car!I feel bad that you have so many problems Jerry
I've had many trannies out & put several clutches in, but have never had this kinda of trouble before with a tranny going back in.Damn bro!! This car treats you like mine does lol. As far as the clutch goes it sounds like all the ones I have done. I've had the trans out of these cars more than a few times lol. I usually start two or three bolts and use a stubby wrench to draw it in. I use the stubby so I don't have the ability to put to much ass on it lol. These tend to be hard for that last little bit goin in.
I've tried many postiions for the jack for lifting of the tranny & the positiion I have determined seems to be best for lifting it without allowing it to fall easily, so it is dead center of the front to rear weight of the tranny. Once we have gotten it up where it is less likely to fall, we have moved it around a little more & after we installed a couple of the lower bolts we moved it a lot (enough to cause the entire engine to move around while still mounted) in order to try to get her to fall in.Do you have a shop mirror or something to stick in that inch and see if anything is hitting? Is it possible the jack point you are using on the tranny puts too much lift on the back (near the mount holes) and that adds tension so that it won't slide forward? I wish I knew more and could help, I feel so bad.
No offense to TVone2, but he just said it "looks" to be the same, it might not be, it could just be hard to see? Maybe it is the Pilot Bearing?
Well I did notice when the pilot bearing was depressed it was pressed to one side & not the other, the tech even bragged on how they pressed it to the edge like they were supposed too.....wonder if they pressed it to the wrong side?It's the same.. trying to go easy on the poor man! Damn.........
Yeah I know & it will next year if the funds allow & I can decide on a coil over. Right now the Stance GR+3s seem to be what I will be going with unless TiC comes out in time on what they have been working on, which I assure will also be high quality.looks good but needs to be lowered!
I don't really need money for this issue, i just need ot figure it out & laugh about it later. One of my better techs is coming out Sunday to give me a hand & see if I'm overlooking something.^^ really? After all his troubles you add that?
TVone2, I just want to make sure all bases are covered and trying to help, I am trying to be easy on the guy. I feel bad enough that I would like to pass an e-hat to collect some money for Tufast. If Tufast want to post up his paypal email or PM it to those who ask, it is up to him, but I want to give him some money to help support him, i feel so bad, and he does so much for the GC community and I know his DIY will be crazy thourough. So I leave it in Tufast's hands to see what he wants to do, but I don't see why other gencoupe.com members wouldn't want to give $5-$20 to help ease some of the pain maybe?
hows forged treating you? i called for a tune...they never heard of cmd and called me a punk 19 year old kit that doesnt know ****.....those were his exact words. i guess since i dont own a gtr and want to drop 30k into my car they dont give a rats ass about me
I am not saying you do need money for the situation, I just wish I could help as I am sure many of the members here do but we can't really other than something like that. But good luck with your tech's help, I hope you get it back together! :fingersx:I don't really need money for this issue, i just need ot figure it out & laugh about it later.

The help that members on the forums give me & the ideas on how to go about something or check something that I might have overlooked is worth a fortune to me & as long we keep assisting each other I will be ecstatic,I am not saying you do need money for the situation, I just wish I could help as I am sure many of the members here do but we can't really other than something like that.

Once I'm through with all my bolt-ons (which are alot), I plan on trailering the car in on my car hauler pulled by my dad's diesel pickup to Forged Performance in Atlanta to be custom tuned on the dyno by Sharif using a PowerAxel unit that I've had sitting in a drawer forever with other parts that I still need to install. This will hopefully happen before it gets cooler in fall as I really want my car ready to hit the drag strip to see if I can get into 12s on stock turbo before I switch to the TD05-18G.hey can i ask what your doing for tune? i am running the cmd and it kind of is being weird. i dont know what to expect but it seems slow and i did the evo turbo swap. sometimes it has boost cut and wont boost at all. and also it throws check engine and when i hit like 35 or 4k it kind of cuts out and then hits again. anyways, i just want to know what your doing for tunning.
Thanks for the insight.I don't know if you've tried this yet, but it's something that I learned on hot rods, back in the day. Sometimes the clutch is not aligned perfectly and will not allow the input shaft to go completely into the pilot bearing. Solution, connect up your clutch components and depress the pedal. Quite often you hear (and feel) a pop. That's the input shaft going into the pilot bearing. Sometimes a guy at the end of the tranny, to jiggle it around when you press the clutch, is helpful if it doesn't "pop". I'm sure you are way beyond this, or I'm not reading this thread right (or completely). But I thought I'd throw in some tricks I've learned over the past 25 years.
I trust Sharif's tuning ability & look forward when I finally have all my bolt-ons installed so I can trailer this baby in. I know that 260whp is about all that I will see, but I'm hoping for a very linear curve & excellent response from car based on the mods that I have chosen. More importantly once this tune is complete, that means my Stage1 is also complete! Then Bigger & better things
