10 Replies and 181 Views Mounting/Balancing new tires...  181  10 Started by  jsarino Will AutoTire (or any other place) mount and balance tires for me Here's the catch...the tires/wheels are one size larger than my stock tire/wheel combination. I have 17s on my car size larger than stock. The other catch: they are EXPENSIVE aftermarket wheels...I'm worried that they'll get scratched (I've seen the wheel mount that most places use). Any advice

13 Replies and 178 Views Gear Box Swap  178  13 Started by  RobBzx2 I was wondering what the advantages of a Six speed gear box verse a Five speed one I was just reading that the new SVT Focus which has the same engine as my car is going to have a Six speed gear box and I was thinking about getting one put in my ZX2. I just wanted to know if this is a good idea or a bad one. Also, is this a task that I should take on myself to install or is it just a big pain to do. Any info would be great.Thanks

3 Replies and 178 Views JRZ/KONI 8041/Stock Shocks  178  3 Started by  robj The stock shocks are pretty good on my car. 95 of the mechanical side of the fast ticket is a tree trunk sized front sway bar. However, I have an opportunity to get a set of JRZ shocks (setup by Fordahl Motorsports) from a former national S2000 driver. Koni also should have their single adjustable sport shocks out for my car by EOY.I'm looking for somewhat improved damping, ability to alter my setup to provide more balance, and more flexibility to fine tune in grid when I get the setup wrong...

2 Replies and 212 Views Header size in relation to Turbo (Joel stay out of this one)  212  2 Started by  Scooby Do I am Turboing my Impreza in the spring. The stock, cast iron, restrictive and poorley designed manifold is about 1.75"e; od. I currently have on the car 2.25"e;od tubular headers, mandrel bent but still unequal length. Is it better to go to the smaller diameter OEM manifolds to keep velocity up, or stay with my tubular headers and get the flow improvement I have a 2.25"e; od up and down pipe set up, with a 3"e; cat back. So back pressure after the turbo is not a concern. Whats y...

6 Replies and 158 Views Subaru SVX  158  6 Started by  Falkonn I just started going to a couple of the St Louis races, and wondered if anyone could advise me on whether or not this is worth buyingI found a 92 SVX for $4300. It was in a wreck that took out the side panels. Those were replaced, but the patch and paint job were very unprofessionally done. Frame is fine. Engine is clean, no leaks and runs smoothly and quiet. Tranny shifts well (EC shifting works well)... suspension allright but right front strut is after factory. I got it up to 100, no shak...

1 Replies and 319 Views Tire Warmer Blankets  319  1 Started by  CSPTypeR Why do you need blankets for your tires Cold tires don't win! I have manufactured tire blankets that work. These blankets have been tested and used for the last year. I recommended using tire blankets when air temperatures are below 90 degrees. This is especially important for those driver's using Kumho tires. For those drivers using Hoosier tires: recommended temperature below 80 degrees. Why are blankets important R tires best work at optimal temps. Maintaining these temperatures ...
