I saw yesterday that it was down. Hopefully it will come back.

What is different from the stock setup? Did you shave the block or head? Old fuel pump?

I got the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R 205 50 R15 on tonight. They cleared the insides front and back and didn't hit fully locked in the front. However I will need to roll the fenders in the front and back to prevent rubbing on corners. They're barely wider then the 195 50 R15 BFGoodrich g-Force Spor...

I ordered up a new master cylinder after bleeding the brakes again. It marginally improved but still wasn't satisfactory. I was hoping that power brake booster would add additional force to the piston travel, but I think it more or less just shortens the brake pedal stroke but won't allow the stroke...

Do you have any pictures? I have been thinking about this for a while. A bigger booster would give more braking power with less effort :-) The brake booster was non-functional. It is possible that the adjustment was just off or when I made a slight alteration to the outside casing that it damaged t...

I'm switching to a bigger brake booster because I'm running substantially bigger front and soon rear brake disks, pads, and larger surface area of the pistons. The ratio between master cylinder and brake caliper piston will remain the same by only increasing the brake booster. I can take pictures wh...

I just have a few things to wrap up before she is back on the road. Today I got the larger brake booster on from from the 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara. It barely fits. 8.79" vs. 6.60" I had to press in on the brake booster where it the clutch cable comes through, and gently maneuver the brake lines into...

Good find. I remember when someone broke my hatch window and what a pain it was just to find and clean up a replacement window.

Manifold update: I had to take apart and have the manifold welded again. I have it all back together with a 5/8" rise in the t3 flange. This provided all kinds of extra clearances almost everything. The only exceptions were: one of the bolts for the metal heat shield (this just needs to be installed...
