I work in bundles from each connection point to the PCM. If you put several neat bundles together, it should be minimal effort to keep the resulting trunk neat and tidy.

well you have a turbo to quiet down the exhaust, assuming youre only running one tip?

heres what true duals sound like on a 3.4, with the aerochambers.

Did it over-extend or just plain defective? Why do you need a new clutch? Just because? Or did the hydraulic fluid contaminate the disc?

Sorry you ran out of time...

I think it was just plain defective, I haven't had a chance to take it apart to look, but it never really even firmed up before I noticed the dripping, and I imagine if it was over extended, it would have gotten firm, and then "popped"

once I got the turbo build rolling I realized the centerforce would be stretched to it's limits, I tried selling it to fund a new one, but no-body would buy it, so I figured I'd run it and if it held it held, if not then I'll have to fix it.

the car will still get done, there will just be a 9ish week delay. hopefully I'll get a few days off after boot camp/before school that I can use to get this thing fixed.


Man that sucks bad. Sorry to hear that. I am hoping i don't end up with the same issue. I am trying to figure out where to get an HTOB spacer for mine. I heard that spec sells them, but i went on their web site and could not see anything.

Looking forward to see you continue this project. Now that mine is running again, I need more persuasion to tear it down again for a turbo build.

well, I placed the order(acknowledged by a Spec employee via email) for my clutch 4 days ago, thinking that by now it would have left Spec and be on it's way to me,

this was 3 days ago...

 
quote
They ship in 24-48 hrs..this is a busy week given we are closed all next week. If not today, probably leaves tomorrow…


seeing as I hadn't heard anything from Spec, I called them up, and they don't have anything in their system on my order at all... now how is a order supposed to ship if it doesn't exist??? Guess who just lost a $600 sale.

so now, instead of a Spec, I'll be going with a Bully stage 4 Clutch. hopefully this order works out better...

Did ya ever manage to get a spacer from spec? I am going to make my own on the lathe tomorrow and see how it turns out. If i am not happy with it, I will be ordering a spacer from them myself. After a couple emails to them, someone finally got back to me with a part # and price! Part number N1774-.250 . $49.
