it all depends on how much $$$ you have and what class you are running in autox....post back with your class and budget and we can probably guide you into a baseline setup. also keep in mind suspension and personal driver skills improves times alot more than most engine mods unless you car is particularly underpowered for the course....
if this is one of your first times out auto xing make sure to stay as stock as you can so you can get the feel for the car. then go from there and see what weaknesses your car might have and improve on that. What I would do if I were you is go get a rule book so you can determine what mods you can do for what classes.
Okay since your in street mod 2 the ruls are VERY open. I would tell you if your new get what you can out of the engine but dont push it to much. I figure if you make 200hp (flywheel) your are doing great already ) concentrate on driving, and getting a feel for the car once you get consistent times on street tires (start out with those so you can learn the car better) then switch to the widest rim that you can fit under there with R compound. (remeber its all about the contact patch) I recommend the kumho's because they are cheap and decent as far as R goes (especially if your learning you dont want to flat spots some hoosiers and start crying...)
now if you dont have the $$ to do all this. I would 1. consider a different class (or if thats not an option) then 2. concentrate on driver improvment and better tires, suspension(in that order)
I am building a EF I have a D15b2 block with a D16y8 head.
I have the engine together and in the car already.
I ended up using a gates water pump kit with y8 timing belt.
When i went to time the engine it looked ok but I assumed i
could compensate with the dizzy if i had an issue ( I was wrong)...
Ok so I’m trying to tension the power steering pump where it needs to be and realized the car didn’t have part of the items needed to do so.
My question is what other piece do I need to complete this so it will stop squealing randomly?
Portion missing is piece that the wingnut bolt threads into...
Need a second opinion here:
I have an 89 CRX Hf that had working AC, not amazing, but it worked. I assume it was R12 as there were no converter nipples going on.
A while back someone hit let head on, broke the radiator and mangled the condenser, but didn't rupture it.
I decided since I was...
