Re: WANTED, GTU/Indy Wheels, Dead or Alive

:Bravo: Got 'em! A little pricier than I was hoping for overall, but not bad for the current availability and overall economy we have now. Three even came with center-caps and screws, and they are all GTU 'grey', so I don't have to worry about repainting if I don't want to. White inserts might look ...

Re: The Oil Catch Can

I saw you both mentioned PCV being on the rear valve covers...must be an MPFI thing. Both my SFI engines had the PCV on the front side. As I recall $A1 mask, the EGR has a table with injector base pulse width vs % to compensate for the lack of oxygen in the air charge with active EGR, but I don't r...

Re: WANTED, GTU/Indy Wheels, Dead or Alive

Searchtempest is a new one on me -I'll try that. I THINK I have a solid lead on a partial-set. A bit spendy though due to shipping, but such is the price to be paid for the pleasure of living far away from annoying neighbors out here on the moon... :D The last time I had a lead on GTU wheels I could...

Re: WANTED, GTU/Indy Wheels, Dead or Alive

Thank you 90INDYLIN , I do already have some 'feelers' out there for them through that source, and I will update if that pans-out for me, the fact that I don't care if the wheels are 'pretty' may help me there... :D There are some overpriced options through ebay too, but I can't bring myself to pay ...

WANTED, GTU/Indy Wheels, Dead or Alive

NOT looking for the assorted common comments of, "Good luck with that, you will never find them..." or, "I used to have a set, gave them away for 5-cents and a stick of chewing-gum 400 years ago..." and other $#it-talk like that. :) Nothing useful to contribute here, please save ...

Re: The Oil Catch Can

Hmm, great topic! :friends: I have run filters before, never a.. bad result... But haven't bothered with a catch-can... I should. The rear (PCV side) is basically the engine-case's 'outlet' side when the engine is running at higher vacuum, such as idle, and engine vacuum will draw through the filter...

Re: 5 speed swap

I had a write-up back on bstuff waaay back when, though there were a few differences as the conversion was going into the GTU with the 3800SC swap. Partly depends on which variant of the 5-speed you are going with. Oldest ones used an enclosed jackshaft and both CV axles were the same, left and righ...

Re: Custom engraved 3400 UIM for turbo 3400

The NICO (Nissan/Infinity) forum seemed decent back when I had checked it out years ago relating to my 300ZX/VH45DE project, but I just didn't get that involved, and stayed away from all the 240SX/KA-series discussions that A) -didn't relate to me and, B) -I suspected would attract more of the young...

Re: Custom engraved 3400 UIM for turbo 3400

Do whatever with you want with emblems IMO. I mean, I had a fake "SS" and I'm making a new "T56" decal in the Z26 style soon...bad paint or not. Yep. I am too far away from 'stock' on most of my vehicles to ever gain the title of 'purist'. One of the reasons I still visit the Fo...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

pulled the trans to start a 5 speed swap over this winter. Swapping in a Getrag 282! YES!! Now it will be a real car! Haha. :wink: Still like that car of yours, every time I see it there is something 'fresh' about the looks, yet familiar too. I guess that is what makes the car's styling (and the de...

Re: Custom engraved 3400 UIM for turbo 3400

That is awesome -caught a glimpse of it but hadn't posted yet... Using the Buick GN(X) "boosted-6" is borderline blasphemous, but it came out too nice for me to criticize! :ROFL: I have intentions of making a decal for the L36/L67 3800 hybrid in my GTU, doing a red "L3" and a bla...

Re: Looking for a Beretta

My wife says I need a project car. She had a Beretta, and I always liked them, but they're hard to find. Even MUCH harder to find than a solid Beretta project car is a wife that will suggest their husband needs a project car :D -DEFNITELY a keeper! :lol: My GTU was originally an '89 2.8 V6 automati...

Re: Off-Topic, Off-Center, and Possibly Out of my Mind -Turbo Bike build

Keep building skills and experience. Weird stuff is cool. If I'm not learning something, I'm wasting my day. :pardon: If I'm not applying what I've learned, I'm wasting myself. Just got a rotary-table (precision machining fixture -weighs a little over 60 pounds) to use with my metal-shaper (old-sch...
