      I run a 9cm hy35 on a...

      Yes.

      If you beat on the car, you need a plate. It's not one of those things that you should get when you get around to it. The pressure comes back up when the oil cools off, but the damage...

      The oe crank pulley absorbs harmonic vibrations that are inherent in a 4-cylinder motor. The light weight pulleys do not. This puts extra stress on the internal components of the motor and will...

      The stock turbo isn't enough to burn up the vr6 clutch unless you're riding it. if you're slipping, you need a new clutch kit. If you used a second-hand g60 flywheel without resurfacing it, that's...

      They reduce valve train mass. Lower mass, less force required to change move. It also changes valve train harmonics. On an Max effort build, @10k, sure. At 7500/8500, eh. Spring pressure and...
