This is why I'm going to school for Mech. Engineering man.. tired of half-ass "I heard this bs" type of responses... I care and work hard as hell to find the real truths. Reason why I love this site really...
good question i have no clue what the border would do for a 20 year old engine, not much i think. so ya im good to go for the cam swap?, i was thinking of just throwning a y7 gear on, is it better to invest in an adjustable?
im hopefully getting the cam tmrw! but i did my compression test today and turned out pretty well, 1-185 2-185 3-180 4-185 not bad for 260 000km right? you should get the block or an entire motor from here, Toronto isn't that far!
hey, huge fan of your thread. im currently shopping for a cam. just wondering if its better to wait and find a zc cam or just get a regular a6 one? is the difference worth it? i wont be using an adjustable gear at the beginning. and if you could just give a ball park price range for a cam so i dont overspend. thank you
I don't have jack squat anymore, but my brother is working on a music degree at the moment. He might know someone that I could hook you up with. It's been so long I would have to do a refresher on how to read sheet music lol.
Well, I was told they were Skunkworks springs and Ti retainers, but I've been fooled before. I thought the coilovers I was using were Skunk2 but later found out that they probably weren't. I do know that whatever springs they were, they had a LOT more tension on them then the stock because I went through hell compressing them. I think the biggest thing to remember is strategic maintenance on the motors. I would pull my valve cover at least once a month and look over everything. But even with as much as I thought I was throwing at the car, I tried to blow that poor motor for over 4 years, and when it finally did fail, it was nothing more than a head gasket! So yeah, I'm a firm believer in the SOHC NoTec. But after having the H22 powered Accord, I want to see what I can do with the mini-me for a while.
Getting a green card can be a bitch (took forever for my family), but my dad (who did all the paperwork for my citizenship) said if your smart, you can get citizenship without having a lawyer do the paperwork, within like a year.
