The 949 water pumps have the cast impeller and not the stamped steel ones for less cavitation. It is a gates that you can prolly get from a local parts store. That is what I am using in my builds.....cheap insurance.

Call your local auto parts supplier and ask for Gates 42134. That is what I got from Emilio. If you can not find one, call me and I will send you my spare. But I am sure you can find it locally.

Got the last bit of parts in that i really needed for the engine build.
ACL stuff (FM rebuild kit), FM level 2 clutch & PP, M-tuned reroute.

Just got off the horn with the engine builder / machine shop. Going to drop it off Sunday. Turnaround is 3-4 weeks.

Going to order piston size that he recommends once he gets into it. As well as valves and springs (same stuff Bryan put in his car, maybe not as heavy springs). Lastly a Gates water pump. I'll get all that stuff from fab9, they ship super fast. If they don't have something you want listed, they can probably get it for you.

No pictures, nothing really good or new to see.

Doing a very long overdue fluid change on my rear diff.



That was stuck to the filler plug. Could only be half a tooth. But is any gear in there with teeth that small worth worrying about having one missing?

Also, i took the vent off and cleaned it. It was super grimed up and wasn't venting one bit. I suggest everyone clean theirs. When i took it off it was under a bit of pressure.

It is not making any noise? How does it feel when you spin the wheels by hand?

If it sounds and feels normal, just roll with it.

Sounds fine after i changed the fluid and cleaned the vent. Wasn't making the funny noise it was before, but then again i didn't really dog on it and get it hot.


Loaded up all the goodies in the truck and dropped them off just now.



3-4 weeks turnaround. Then comes swap time.

No roll bar = sleeper.

Not sure when / if any more picture of my car from the BBQ will pop up.

Basically it is a gathering of mostly all sport compact in Michigan.
Here's a bad picture.


I thought you guys would get a huge laugh out of this.
An event coordinator comes up and slaps me with this shirt. Says i'm to 4x4 status for a low car... (see rolling picture above)




Not that i'll ever put Teins on my car, ever. I think it's a cool shirt, and i'm not completely sure why exactly i got it. Maybe it was just random.

Edit* Found out my car is just as fast as a 6.4l 2013 SRT8 300C. Highway pulls were door to door.

Yeah- wow. Maybe that's why they're not available anywhere but directly from revshift.

Sent that CR thread to revshift himself.

He's usually extremely good with things.

He called us the day after he ordered yelling at us about how he needs the mounts overnighted but he wasnt going to pay for it. Then the next day called again asking to cancel the order but they had already shipped. Then the next day called again telling us that we are ------s and that he reported us to the BBB. Also, because of his post, we have been getting emails calling us bitches, ------s, and scammers. Never did we tell him that we were going to charge a 15% and 25% fee, he got that from our terms and conditions which doesn't state it the way he said. We never told him that he would get the parts next year, that is just retarded. We shipped his parts out within a couple days and he had them within a week. He is in texas so the shipping takes a little longer. This guy is a complete nightmare. He is a lying piece of ****.
That's from revshift himself. Now I believe my friends before some little bitch on clubroadster talking ****. The OP of that thread is on my block list for being a ******* idiot. Also shame on you if you're sending bad emails to him. Most people here get it but kids on CR don't know what it's like. Revshift has amazing service and I know for a fact he would never screw anyone.
