1998 Evolution V GSR: Classroom

Finally got a bit of time on the car this weekend...but first few part arrivals: Fresh dipstick: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51121066583_f8c3e58434_z.jpg Evo 9 oil filter adapter - because it is clean and will support larger oil cooler lines (compared to the V which used one size smaller): h...

1998 Evolution V GSR: Classroom

We used only on the seats. We used Simple Green on the carpet at the car wash... We'd heard Resolve is stronger/more effective, but was concerned over 23 year old seat/color. Additionally, we only had 2 choices at the time. It took out several stains and didn't seem to damage anything. Just spray it...

Steve: I see how it is...don't show the carpet cleaner...no magazine for you! :grin: Interesting, this was the first issue of GRM that I did not get in recent memory. USPS finally failed me! Pretty rare actually for how it gets to Stuttgart... Nonetheless - finally got the can home - just for kicks:...

The car is famous! Just got my issue in the mail...bought 4 from GRM as our subscription never arrived... Pretty awesome! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51106466333_442c4438db_z.jpg Close up: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51107344560_f299f694f3_z.jpg Made a little lady smile in disbelief!...

My 240sx Is Finally Going To The Beauty Parlor

Brian - that is a sharp photo! Left click and save... Admittedly, that 'ride' was pretty embarrassing. I owe you a better one next time. The car in its natural habitat:

Now where is the beach shot of that 240!!!

Brian: I think that is the only sound deadener in the car! It is known to be a tingy/lightweight model...it is in good shape, luckily. Nothing compares to a BMW though. For our M3 project it was a similar activity, but the carpet had this massively thick foam molded to it. It weight like 75 pounds! ...

Additional assistance on the Evo specific forums pointed us to ACL who makes an oversize rod bearing that is just right for our application! Bringing the spec to 0.0025 for the rods and with the larger OEM size on the mains - 0.0023. Orders placed...another 2 weeks. We did take advantage of the warm...

Agreed seems a bit excessive, but it is the fun of engines.

Brian: Our goal is 400 though! We will chassis dyno the car to ensure the tuning piece. Will be a nice comparison to our Chevy V8 application as it will be the same place. Not much this weekend as school work and Scouts dominates... Final cleaning pass of the seats: https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

Brian: not sure what is in the can - the shop owner spoke highly of it and was special. Admittedly, 8000 is my self imposed redline, the turbo will give up prior to that. We will see how this works out before making any furthure changes - likely we will be closer to 350 HP from more research.

My 240sx Is Finally Going To The Beauty Parlor

Brian - ok those commercials are even cooler. I like Christy Brinkley, but the Millen brothers is some driving fame...but Christy Brinkley... :grin: Love the exhaust...how does it sound - should make the heel-toe fun more simple...at least what I've found. Don't throw away that OEM exhaust! Might be...

Success - complete cylinder arrival. Complete with GSC (beehive springs/locks/Ti retainers), Manley (std size valves), and OEM seals.

Andrew: Ok...we weren't aware of that. Cool. May have to go buy a copy! Thanks! Brian: If at 8 months the car is not roadworthy...disposal!

Daniel: the pics make it look a bit better than real - but thanks. We know we will have our hands full getting it roadworthy with the German rules so spending a bit up front seems like a logical approach. Our clock is ticking with only 8 months left. As an example, they check braking force total, sp...

Brian - those look new! Surprised you don't have any damage from decades of use...Florida helps. Ours had rub thru in several places from tire contact - car was lowered previously with a larger than OEM tire. We hope to go wider than taller so hope to avoid the same fate. Fortunately, they are avail...
