Great thread. Glad I took the time out to read it.
UPR coil overs. I'm not a fan of any upr parts personally
Nice thread wish I would've read it before I started modding, live and learn.
My biggest regret, I have to say is the RXT twin disc. I love the pedal effort and the way it grabs, but I am sick of the chatter and the rattles coming from my tranny. My car sound like junk from the inside. (maybe I have a bad install as Malcom mentioned previously :shrug
My second regret (still trying to evaluate, I believe tires have something to do with it?) is the FTBR 5001 Kit, I still to this day get wheel hop when I hit 2nd gear to hard, I wont even try to launch hard in 1st.
my biggest regret is def going with the team z k member. Its awesome quality but they offset the rack mounting points towards the passenger side and that caused all kinds of issues with 1 7/8" headers and steering shaft clearance.
Interesting to see regrets from ported eatons, I'm excited to get one haha.
Yeah, was surprised to see some of the ported Eaton disappointments. I have a Posi ported Eaton, and I have been super happy with it the last 4 years. Now, time to step up to VMP TVS and go for more.
Just got one, steig stage IV
That's what I had no regrets their, made decent power w/zero drivability issues. I think most of the regrets come from comparing the outcome vs. a 2.3 Whipple or TVS.
I loved my ported Eaton back in the day. Man trying to remember, think I ran it for 5 or 6 years. Best screaming bang for the buck.
I usually try to keep all the original parts off my car, but I would be willing to trade you my original Stieg ported blower for the Crusher Malcolm.
I don't think an Eaton will blow enough air for me now days
As far as regrets...
1. Weapon X race COPS and iridum plugs
2. LMR starter with no core charge
That's a strong possibility!
What rear springs, shocks and tires (and pressures) are you running?
i have never had wheel hop in my car even with the 100% stock irs, are people getting hop from the poly bushings?
If you put soft tires on wheel hop goes away, even on the stock IRS. At least that's been my experience.
Same here, stock IRS with soft tires - no hop.
Check your rear tie rods! You might be surprised. I didn't think so either until I pulled them out and they were bent.
When was the last time you checked your transmission mount ?
I had what I thought was chatter , turns out it was my transmission mount. The stock one has two rubber straps rivet in , one of mine was ripped
Steel braided fuel lines. They cut, pierce and rip your skin apart. Oh, don't get me started when it comes to routing them for a clean look, that shit is impossible and when they start leaking, its a 102-point sprinkler system.
Now, nylon lines, I love them. Shit now my fuel likes are routed the way I want for an extra clean look.
That's an interesting one. Which steel braided fuel lines specifically did you have so much trouble with? I always use Fore's PTFE steel braided line and flexibility is really good, never leaked a drop on any fuel systems I've ever done and honestly can't say I ever cut myself on it.
