  1. it should work if its a complete kit and will convert ur car to egas as well as all the other wireing, engine, tranny etc coomponents.

    what u will have in the end is a 45,000$ kit installed on a car that will still get shillacked because the GT3 will have a much more refined, and stiffer chassis because of seam welding as opposed 2 spot welding on the earlier cars.

    if u wanna go ahead and solve this as well by rewelding ur pannels or welding in a rollcage, then yes, you will have a GT3 which will have cost u way more than just goin out an buying it.

    however, if u do have a connection for these engines..wnna lemme in on it ;)

  2. nice to see, but i never really paid much attention to those reports because it doesn't describe the natuer of the problems.

    i.e. a company that makes a car with 300 small faileurs (window switches, little light bulbs etc) per 100 cars VS a company with 10 problems per 100 cars but which are catastrophic engine faileurs, tranny's etc. I know i made a drastic example but just to illustrate my point.

    I know mazda should be closer to the top..if it wasnt for the tributes (hurray for american electronics) and Mazda3 Tiptronic tranny's (basically anything sourced/built from Ford damnnit).

  3. dvdude, it won't be a problem as i have done it. however, i wouldn't expect ur amp 2 last very long as i fried one in like a yea and a bit.

    Any idea why?

    no clue....my deck is rated at 50wattx4, the amp is at 45x6 and the speakers r 45 watt. maybe just bad luck the amp went..or maybe the amp didn't like the deck. 'm not much of an audio guy...i just kno what sounds good, and get someone else 2 do the install work lol

  4. ^ scouser, do you have photos on what a GT2 bumper might look like on a carrera with the old style lights such as ours?

    john: i will probably be doing my bumper this month. i've got a 1999 bumper cover in arctic silver if you want.

    edit: and if u need 2 replace ur hood..i've got a CF one a well for ya :)

  5. I used to have the exhaust bypass pipes from fabspeed.  Lossing weight along made my car handle and perform better.  However it was way too loud and I ended it up taking it out.  I was wondering how loud your car is with the cat bypass pipes?

    if u go with fabspeed mufflers and cat bypass pipes, you will shed as much weight as with the muffler bypasses. (25 lbs from the mufflers and like 20 pounds from the cats) and it won't be as loud. worth a shot perhaps?

  6. like the title says, i know this sounds like a stupid question (i'm still a noob when it comes to wrenching, and this will be my first transmission fluid change) but i saw on the DIY transmission oil page that the Carrera 4's have to chaing oil in the front axel final drive?

    this is different than a diffrential right?

    do i have to do anything to my LSD (my car is RWD, not a C4)?

    (flame suit on)

    thanks for the help.

    (also, how often do i have to change the tranny fluid?)

  7. hehe, i wouldn't call it a complete 180 as i'm still very much into performance. I just felt that the 3.4L motor wouldn't have the balls to deal with the extra drag from the widbody kit i was going to do, not to mention the wider wheels needed to fill out the fenders. (plus i like the idea of having a fast show worthy car :) )

    so now my priorities are as follows:

    1)RGT facelift/PSS9's in tandem

    2) Throttle body and ECU

    3) Atomic Beaver Powered Flux Capacitor turbine, in carbonfiber.

  8. But I haven't done any experiments to test this theory of water condensation, and water condensation during the winter will have a lot to do with the temperature and humidity of your garage.

    garage is heated 24/7 at about 65 or 70 degrees F. Humidity seems pretty low but i havn't had an opportunity to check it. probably wouldn't hurt to throw a dehumidifier down there once in a while. then again, i'm probably just being cheap.. trying to avoid a 50 dollar oil change on a 100,000k car thats been flawless upto this point.

  9. ^ how does this apply to leaving ur car parked for the winter. for instance in my case:

    i get about 4-6k kms a year on the car then it goes in for the winter.

    i was going to do an oil change next week and will probably bring the car back out in april.

    should i do the oil change every season because of contaminants that might stick to pistons and whatnot over the winter, or should i just change the oil filter every winter and oil every 2 years?

    Off-Topic: what's the usage life of BMC F1 filters?
