      what rivets? the ring gear comes stock with bolts? i saw no other rivets in the gearbox that i remember. that is the Wavetrac front diff with the OEM ring gear on it already.

      it came with two billet shift forks and i plan on putting another roll pin inside the original one for added shear strength.

      i hope the times drop quick now....

      So i finally collected the parts i am going to upgrade for this years race season.
      I snatched up John Betz Roll cage from his red corrado.
      I got the hook up from my good friend Aaron on a set of 1000cc Injectors.
      Just got a new 044 pump for the new 034efi Surge tank and i got a new clutch pac
      for this year. 2600lbs PP 6 puc disc 9.5lbs Flywheel.
      and last but not least My main man Jerry Rynolds AKA White Beard is machining me a fully ported and polished 16v head.
      Going to the Dyno and retune for c16 so i can turn the boost all the way up on the GT3076
      looking to make 550+whp and finally run a low 11 second 1/4 mile this year. i currently run 12.30 @ 117mph on pump gas 92 octane at 24psi boost. So hopefully 150whp more will get me 1.0 second faster in the 1/4 mile.

      This year we're planning bigger and better things after a good season for us last year. Its all going on 2.slowslow's blue gti. We're doing a complete fuel upgrade to run e85 with 80# injectors, 2 044's with a surge tank, new -8 fuel rail and an Areomotive FPR. We're also upgrading to PT6766 BB turbo and full 3 inch v-band aluminum exhaust with a precision 46mm WG and new tial 50mm BOV. We're going to be running Lugtronic and putting a full 10 point cage. We also have a bunch of other little things happening to cut down weight from the cage like swapping to 4 lug and taking out the heater box and all the tar from the inside of the car. Upgraded to level 5.9 axles and have a full slicks and skinnies set up. Putting some arp hardware into the block and hope it last till we can build the motor. The trans will be stock till next season. We're hoping to have a good year after going 11.0 last year with a small t3t4 turbo on 36# injectors running pump 93 on a C2 chip. We have almost all the parts ready to in and we're just waiting on a few things that have to be done first....

      I've been doing some work on my gti but it won't be out this season and i'm in no rush. i'm having a lot more fun helping a friend out then stressing about my own car for now.

      SQS changed they heat treatment does not look at all the same as the one i used, now if they would spline the inputshaft where 3rd is, it would not twist and break, i ask them to do that and don't want too??

      easy to understand, when you hit 3rd gear, that twin wheel is help by splines only on the 4th, so all that force applied in 3rd on the twin wheel, wants to twist and breaks, that is what happen to us, they fix that, the get a even better gear set.

      Your gonna love the Gear set Tim, good luck with it.

      is it just 2.94 or 3.11 that you need to machine the pinion area

      Bought a VF turbo R32 with 156k on it so recently I've been de-turbo'ing and going back to stock -- while I did that I went through the entire engine and resealed everything on the engine, valve stems to oil pan -- new clutch, new chains, new sensors, new engine mounts etc. Preventative maintenance... hoping to keep this one for a while -- its going to replace the rabbit hopefully.

      Glad to hear this. I know this turbo has more in it and the engine does to. OEM head is getting
      P&P which will make a difference and the conservitive timing due to the pump gas is history.
      I am looking forward to numbers like that.

      I was really surprised it made that much power and the times i ran in it. the car was not gutted or anything..just back seats removed. Did manage 1.6 and 1.7 60 ft's.

      I've got the clutch in this sentra now, couple details, then need to get it inspected. Looks like i might make some much needed moneys.

      Rocco should be moving under it's own power on friday night.

      Lots of ****ty weeks, and finally a good one.

      Picked this up as a project for the wife. Should be a bit more fun to ride then here 350 warrior haha. Still toying with the idea of a turbo vw buggy but its kind of fun not having broken toys every time they leave the garage

      The red 400ex is my buddies but the rest are the families. My son recently sold his china crap one hes saving up to hopefully get a polaris outlaw 90 by summer (hes 6 so it takes him awhile to save haha) That one is 07 yfz450 your not kidding about it being better its far superior and have double the power in stock form so it should carry all 100lbs of her around pretty well.

      Its amazing how many toys you can buy when not dumping all the toy fund into a car... although i think about doing another car daily

      We also have a RZR which is pretty fun but considering trading it in on a new XP 4 seater
