  1. This style spacer is what I use. Not the exact spacer. I have no idea where I bought them way back when. https://wheeladaptersusa.com/products/5450-5450aw1?variant=47087645458721&currency=USD&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic&gad_source=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwhb60BhClARIsABGGtw9kOUVBIWVJTPGyLlQHQQKuEvmAxFqSSe0NTdSatdHqyREMUoBDbAoaAqtxEALw_wcB
  2. I have been looking for wheels to fit for a LONG time that aren't custom 3 piece. probably 10 years ago now I settled on a set of mustang knock offs. 17x10.5 rear 17x9 front. Both with +26 offset. I used a 25mm spacer in the rear and a 15mm in the front. I was also nervous about spacers for track use. Hub centric rings were also added. So far so good! I don't love them. It allows me to run the tires I want, but man are these things HEAVY Here are the rears I run. These are available in many sizes. https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-2003-cobra-style-chrome-wheel-17x105-rear-only-28119.html
  3. Yeah ... the vacuum actuated everything was unfortunately kind of standard for the time though. With a little ingenuity and a LOT of time you could definitely swap in solenoids. Probably not worth the amount of time it would take to spec it all out, fabricate, then trial and error until it is working though.
  4. At least this shows a bunch of us are indeed still around here! Best part of this thread is seeing some of you posting again. HELLO ALL! 🙂 I agree that FB has it's place. Just not for the real issues and expect quality answers from decent humans. I have told 100 people on FB to come here and look through sections. I doubt if 5 of them followed my advice. Everyone seems to want to be spoon fed instead of do a little research themselves.
  5. No idea, but that's what it told me. So I resized to that spec
  6. Stormfront has a nice ring to it and also plays on the turbo whistle. Apparently I need to get more creative. Maybe I'll come up with a name for the Valencia car one day. My Starion was given the name Christine by an ex shortly after purchase because she was sure it had a mind of it's own and wanted to kill her. Mostly due to the trashed steering box, but a little to do with how I drove it too 😄
  7. Oof ... image quality is no good at 32k. Looks like I'll have to play around with that. Drag and drop does indeed work though
  8. Go figure. The most active post in years is about site activity. We have voiced donating to the site many times over the years. I fear at this point Bob (Ryddler) just isn't into it anymore, yet doesn't want to release the reigns. The hayday of this site was a glorious thing! If only we had 25% of that back. I post on the FB once in a while and try to help out, but it's sometimes too little among the sea of ignorance and keyboard mechanics. I think a lot of people go there just for more traffic. I'm definitely guilty of posting a pic with a quick question to try and get a quick response. I use imageshack for pics, so I haven't tried the drag and drop with the new setup. LOVE LIVE THE FORUMS!
  9. What do you mean you don't have EXACT radius numbers?? I suppose it's easy enough to math that 😄
  10. Excellent work on the drawing! That could come in handy. Saving now
  11. My vote goes to the relay. Jimmy, great info!! See you in a few days 😎
  12. The other one is where the stock oil separator drained to. Assuming you mean the one on the pass side?
  13. Definitely interested in the details about that rack! I've been saying for a long time I want to swap to rack and pinion.
  14. Welcome! Indeed, what are your valvetrain ideas? Odds are good that we have some information for you.
  15. That's a good enough reason for me! Also wouldn't mind having a fresh G54 as a spare ... 3.5 hours from here it seems. Just far enough to keep me from coming over 😉
  16. I also agree with Steve. Probably the quickest and with the most options.
  17. Thought you weren't going to swap it? 😄
  18. Welcome!! I was a college kid when I bought my first back in 98 and I still have it. The cost of maintaining a "modified" car was something I didn't understand at the time.
  19. Looks like I'm late to the party. Listing isn't up, so I assume it sold?
  20. 🤣 Easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission! I mean, at that point it's already almost done. I also agree. They are all Starions. Some just have a different badge (and tail lights).
  21. This all progressed quickly! Sounds like we might see dyno curves soon. How is the wife taking it?
  22. I have never played with the cast or hyper pistons and consider it cheap insurance to just run wiseco or some other forged. JE used to have pistons readily available too. Randy (Dad) is your guy for engine parts and knowledge.
  23. I saw your other post after this. Been out of town a lot the last couple weeks. Anyways, sounds like you are having a good time with it!
  24. I have used the same OEM pump in several builds now. If it isn't broke, don't fix it. Aprox 90k hard miles on my original 86 pump.
