      Your clutch disc is dragging. If it was one gear, maybe two, it could be the synchros. All gears? No chance.

      Google reverse bleeding. You will need either a dedicated bleeder, or a homemade...

      Start by reverse bleeding the clutch slave.

      If no luck, there is a good chance you broke a strap on the pressure plate.

      I was talking specifically about the Intercooler kit/piping. I should have stated that better, sorry.



      The quality of the fab work/welding, pipe fitment is laughable at best. The welds look...

      The build quality of the Kinetics kits is on par/below that of ebay kits for other cars. It's REALLY over priced for what you get.

      Agreed 110%

      It's a 100hp ABA in a 3k pound car. The only thing they have going for them is they are moderately comfortable. Ruin that by increasing NVH, and you have a miserable car to be in.

      Because using poly in the rear control arm spot is moronic. It is a downgrade in EVERY way, and in NO way will have a increased longevity over OEM bushings.


      Also, Evan-Fischer parts are...

      Valvoline MAXLife ATF is now an acceptable fill in your O1M. They just got the certification in the last year, but it is a game changer $$ wise.

      Those work great for CV/Steering rack boots. But they loosen a few MM by design when they lock, and that makes them a pain on wrap.



      This is one of my favorite tools.

      Huh?

      5w30 oils are "thinner" then 0w40 at operating temp, and almost the same at 32*. And a 0W40 is in NO way a "very thin" oil. In reference to Kinematic viscosity.

      And there is absolutely...

      The guys using Bulk China/Ebay LED's are blinding to say the least, and you can tell from 10 feet away they aren't factory.

      Factory ports are M10x1.0 gasketed. Most aftermarket senders are 1/8" NPT.


      They will thread into each other and seem ok, but DO NOT try it. You can crack the housing, and it will leak.

      Also, what 4" maf housing? There are a few floating around that put the Sensor offset in the pipe and give inaccurate readings.

      I have used a few sets from them for a few different cars. GREAT quality and value. They also actually listen to requests/ideas from customers.

      I would recommend them heavily.

      Larger than stock valves are a borderline waste on stock bore motors, and going too large is detrimental. The stock head/bore already has trouble with valve shrouding, no reason to make it worse,...

      I can guarantee you haven't seen a head that warped perpendicular to the deck surface to cause a leak on a manifold mating surface.
