  9. MKI Cooling & Charging
    So, my temp gauge spike is back and it's likely that water pump was on its last leg last few times I started my '88 up and now decided to fully go. It gets proper hot around the engine, the return bleeder at the radiator does get fluid into it, but all of the cooling hoses feel like there's...

    Howdy all! So recently I was doing some casual work on my 2. I got the car about 5 months ago and have been doing regular maintenance over thy period. Yesterday, I decided to clean out the throttle body, as I was unsure how long it had been untouched. Answer: probably never. That thing was...

    I'm prepping to change the stock exhaust to custom aluminum this spring, and I noticed there are heat shields over the headers. Is it healthier for the car to keep it on or is it just exta weight?

    Hey guys, I pulled my 3 rib 4age to replace the seals and clean it up. While I had it out I came across a 7 rib with better compression and decided to use it. I now have the 7 rib resealed and in the car and everything connected as it should be. I have gone through the BGB to try and trouble...

    Ok so just did a compression test on my 86 mr2 and all 4 cylinders are low on compression, while 3 of the cylinders are above the minimum 128psi one cylinder is below and they aren't with 14psi of eachother as the Haynes manual recommends. Adding oil while doing the compression test adds some...

    I am wrapping up a super budget build on a 7 rib 4age. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to use the automatic trans cooler as a w2a intercooler. If you run air through the coolant side and water through the oil side, then use the a/c condenser as a HE. I'm not around the car and had an...
