Re: JK 24v 3liter ..at last!

I hope Jim won't mind, I wanted to share dyno graph one guy posted on a local forum.

24V => 12V crankshaft interchangability

A friend in his 75 3.0 12V track car needs a new crankshaft. Since our shaft cannot be grinded, and availability of nos shafts is null, question is will 24v crankshaft fit in 12V? I know there are some dimensional differences around flywhell flange area what about the rest?

Re: Race Videos

Hey Mike, Note this was a trackday, not a race, so there were mostly people drving in stock/street cars, and the only requirement in that case is helmet. I don't want you to get the wrong impression but, all races that take part here have to comply with FIA safety regs, so no, you won't see guys rac...

Re: Race Videos

Well, so here it is my first onboard, from one and only track event I managed to paticipate in this season :( I was running Dunlop Slicks 210/45/17 Medium compound. The change was quite dramatic, which ended me topping my last best time by nearly 10 seconds. Given the fact that im still a rookie Im ...

Re: Fuel pump running VERY hot

Hey Mike. I wanted to make a update on my car and mention it there, but I guess for clarity's sake let's keep it here. Well as it often happens, one looks for causes in all the wrong places... When I had my car on the lift I noticed that the feed hose was bent in a such way that barely any fuel coul...

Re: 30mm Sway Bar

A little bit late, but since I have this arb, well I guess Ill chime in. As you noticed the price is very nice especially if you consider that arb's for our cars are just a hollow pipe with two arms welded on both ends - not really a rocket science. The bars are hollow, adjustable, welds are quite f...

Re: Fuel pump running VERY hot

Ok, reporting in. Unfortunately the new layout hasn't changed the situation a bit. The pump is running freaking hot. At this point I see two options: buy new low pressure pump, or replace the low pressure pump with second efi pump which I'm more biased towards, since I see abundance of setups using ...

Re: Fuel pump running VERY hot

Thanks for the reply guys! I also was advised by some other people to reconsider filter "position" ie. move it as Jim suggested. Will let you know how it works out.

Fuel pump running VERY hot

After around an hour of pretty much spirited driving (no track laps this season yet) i noticed that my auxilary low pressure fuel pump (left) is very hot - like in if you touch it you get burned almost. The efi pump is hot/very warm but you can easily touch it - I know this empirical description isn...

Re: GTV6, ex Zender, turning into a racer

Kevin, I hope this clears it a bit. Mind though there are some errors in the drawings as i remember, but it is just good enough to give you an idea i guess. http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/5000/wen0.jpg http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/1795/gpno.jpg http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/3356/12c8.jpg

Re: GTV6, ex Zender, turning into a racer

Thanks Kevin. Give me a day or so, because I have moved abroad (Holland) and I need to look for my backup disk with all the photos. Will post photos of adapter I made. As far as A arms go, yes I did enlarge the opening since 160N springs require larger shock bodies, and 2,25" diameter springs

Re: GTV6, ex Zender, turning into a racer

Few pics from first field testing in five years! Its really amazing how ton of information found here takes form in a car that turns in so easily and behaves so predictable, that it's hard to accept that it was the "same" car before. Too bad I didn't have any decent semislicks, (had to go with pirel...
