  14. Idle problems and hesitating, Help!!

    but if its a vacuum leak wont it be doing it all the time? he said it does it "on occasion".... benny i rekon we check for leaks, change ur spark plugs (as currently they are 1.1mm) change your oil to something better and do your timing, and change your coolant temp sensor if u can find one. if its STILL running like bog we can take it from there... it could be heaps of problems but at least doing what i said above eliminates a few of them.
  15. Diff Bounce

    i got really hard bilsteins and my car does it occasionally. just rev more and they will spin more rather than bounce

  19. Viper Alarms - verdicts?

    c-west is that good or bad experience?
  20. so whats involved with a FMIC?

    i dunno about the ecu and what to do there. but i do know that u should get a fuel pump. the stock ones are shiet. i just installed a walbro 500hp and my car has improved overall in terms of response, less hisitation on boost and off boost. and the boost does not start to drop off as early in the rev range. it feels like it can boost up more freely and willingly, if u can sort of understand. and if u r going to be putting 14psi through ur motor, i think just for the piece of mind that u have decent fuel pump sitting in the back its well worth it. let me kno how you go if i see u at uni man. brownbrowneye38134.4553935185
  21. A/F running rich???

    how do u make ur ride run rich? can u?
  22. it wont be thrust bearing thats for sure. and he said it doesnt do it on idle. just reach down to your exhaust manifold bolts that hold the turbo in place (obviosly when ur car is cold) and feel if any of the nuts are lose or just hanging there. thats how i knew it was my gasket leaking. then sure enough i took the gasket out and it had a big hole in the side that was lose. if u still cant pin point it, take it to a decent mechanics, and tell them the symptoms and say u think its gaskets. dont just rely on forums as phatt180 said, u need to be able to have the car infront of you to check stuff.
  23. you will find its common on sr20s to have your turbo shake loose on the manifold. mine was missing one bolt completely and the other was just loose sitting there about to fall off. and the others where not tight at all. thats how bad it got. i dont think it will be damageing anything atm, but prob best not to leave your turbo bouncing round on the manifold etc... i recently replaced my turbo and all the gaskets. it will take 2 or 3 days. you are the 4th person taht ive helped this week, and im writting an article on the process of replacing the stock turbo as you have to take the whole manifold/turbo/dupmpipe assembly off to replace the gaskets even if your not replacing the turbo. it wont have started all of a sudden, it will have been leaking for a while and then the gasket gets worse and worse and your bolts get looser and looser and then a clicking or buzzing will evolve. it will have started leakin way before it was audiable. this is if it is actaully your gasket...im confident from your descriptions etc that it is. but i could be wrong. ide have to see ur car or something.
  24. not nesssisarillly. i just did my gaskets and mine was making the same sound before hard. i clicking or buzzing when accelerating. but it didnt do it when in neutral. its because the engine is not under load.
