Performance Modifications / Re: 2010 $1000 challenge help needed
« on: December 13, 2009, 06:11:21 PM »
snowboardinwny has his head milled .077 and claims to be around 10.5:1. That is using the stock gasket.

I know .015 only gained me .2:1 so..

The injectors are worthless without a tune, which is expensive.

The POTs mod.

You should have kemanized your intake instead. Its free, and just as good, and you'd have saved money on the filter.

Knocker mod.

Take out all of the sound deadening, and any other un-needed weight.

Coil pack was a waste.

If your friend is good with that bridgeport, have him take a shell mill, take out all but one insert, and mill off .050"-.070" off of the head(speeds and feeds to get the required finish can be found online). Dremel out the ports, port match everything. Maybe bore out the TB and make a new butterfly plate for it(not easy).

Cut and weld your shifter, for a short throw.

Sell the back seat, all of the stock radio equipment, sell the tail lights(does it need to be street legal?), sell the air bags, sell anything you can.

With the 90 dollars you have left, find a "Powder UDP". It is an underdrive pulley made by a guy named powder, they cost 85 new but there isn't a group buy currently. This is dyno proven for a 5whp gain.

IF you can sell a ton of stuff off of the car, look into a set of used R compound tires from ebay.

205/55/16 is the best tire siz IMO. No rubbing though I'm not dropped. I don't think it would anyways though. Speedo is close. Looks good.

Thats a nice area out there. Mellowness(Zack) was at my house in albany like he said. Cool to have another Ny member, even if it is your daughters car. We'll get you to mod it, no worries. ;)

For Sale / Powder alternator odp fs
« on: August 03, 2009, 12:50:10 PM »
As title says, powder odp for sale. Never used. Same price as they are sold for when the group buys are running(which one currently is not) and no waiting for other people to pay before the pulleys are made.

40 shipped.

(This may require the grinding of a lip on your alternator. Some have this and some do not. It is an easy modification)

Performance Modifications / Re: Sprint springs vs. Eibach
« on: July 31, 2009, 10:55:30 AM »
Eibachs do not maintain stock handling. There is a massive difference in stiffness.. and if you do not agree then you really need to get out of a stock zx2 and drive one with eibach springs.

The proper spring depends on your application, as has been said.

If you want to go all out and spend a few thousand dollars, look on ebay for the next year and try and find a set of ford racing coilovers.

Next on the list is ground control coilover sleeves. 400 dollars new, custom spring rates, variable heights.

After that, you're down to regular springs. Eibach and progress are my favorites.
