E-85 $3.00 per GALLON, that's uh $1.50 1/2 gallon.

Not the 1/4 mile time that is important, or how fast you go. It's what you actually do to get there!

At what level would the ladders be necessary? RPM or power output level. And a curiosity on the ladders. Are they machined flat on the cap side or slightly 'convex' to preload the cap center?  I saw your tie rods on MR2OC and would be interested down the road a bit, once I start working on my 2.

I misspelled the word 'vehicle' and came up with a new way to spell it with sexual reference. Since we like to call our cars 'her', it is now a 'vahicle'.

I came across this, kinda late, tired, so no articles to post. I do have this site Supposedly they have developed a process to convert water and CO2 into a synthetic fuel.  Time for bed, maybe get more into it tomorrow.

The little turbo pushed the 1.8l to 140-150 zone, something in the area I'm thinking of. Just a little help to get up a steep hill. Since we have the AFM, would recirculating bypass system be best? I have an S/C BOV at my disposal.

How far down stream can the turbo be mounted before the exhaust gasses lose their potency? Using the stock exhaust manifold with an adapter to the turbo or modifying the downpipe after the 2-1 merge. Thinking of making it semi-easy to change back and forth every 2 years for our smog Nazis. I also have an intercooler from a mid 90's Supra.

Naw, the parts I have at my disposal are an Eaton M62 and a turbo from my '86 Mitsu Tredia. Not sure nomenclature on that turbo. I think I read T18 somewhere.  That was a fun little ride. Needed a better trans though. I'm old, kinda, and basically destroyed my body, so gobs of power are no longer in my wishbook. I just want about 30% more than stock. I won't even consider using my NOS kit any more. But the idea of boosting the stock AFM ECUed engine intrigues me.

Curious? I wonder if a mild boost from a supercharger could be used instead of the turbo with the NA ECU.

Hey Yoshi! Surprised to see you here. Hope you have as much fun here as we have.  I read your posts on turboing an NA AFM setup and am thinking of possibly attempting a project. Not looking for a lot, but would like to have a little more torque. Would be nice to climb Cuesta pass without dropping a gear or two. Until then I actually have a reason to spin that little rev happy monster!

I'm going to have to try that one with my wife!

Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out alive.

I don't see a Cadillac converter.

Sorry Yoshi, but that was a bit confusing. The bigger cams were used on all the T-vis engines, 3 or 7 rib and the smaller cams came in the small port engines. At least in the NA engines. I've not looked into the SC engines cams though.

Finally! Complete and smogged! Only thing left to do is alignment.
