Goodwin says that a 1991 car with a 99 engine, 94 header, 994 cat and test pipe are too many differences and that my exhaust would fit his jig. I guess it's going to the muffler shop...right now.

They're kidding right? If you have a 94 header and 94 downpipe/cat area then an NA exhaust should fit, no matter what engine is in the bay.

Doesn't matter which NA header. It should fit. I would verify the test pipe is correct by test fitting it on a bone stock NA8. The midpipe side of it is the same flange location as the NA6. I would be more suspect of the test pipe fit than the midpipe.

The cat-pipe fits my 1994 with bone-stock exhaust.
The exhaust does not fit on my 1994 with the stock cat.

This is not a battle I can win, the exhaust is already used, I don't really blame them. A muffler shop is going to cut the rear section and add a couple inches, then it should fit.

When you tells someone you have a 99 engine, 1994 header, in a 1991 car...you don't really have footing with those variables. Oh well, more "experience". I have a $10k pile of parts in the garage right now, this is a drop in the bucket.

Who wants a low compression bottom end? Also, everyone needs to read my user-text and stop asking for my 3.63 pumpkin or I will ban you.

Very cool conversion Hustler. I was thinking of doing something similar to get into the PT class.

I'm going to swap heads and keep my fancy one. Still not sure on the turbo stuff but when it's fixed it will be a private sale to a worthy owner.

obviously that didnt help.

But like a man (and since all eye places were closed for the night), I got it out myself with my fingernail.

Shame on you. Even Faefae uses eye protection when it uses any power tools. See? seriously

Can you read? I said I WAS wearing protective glasses, over my seeing-eye glasses.

I need the ones posted above to play it 100% safe.


What I posted was the irony that is my life.

Kinda like how I crashed my miata moments after telling Brad that the corner we about to take is dangerous as many people cross the middle line on a blind corner...

I got metal in my eye once, grinding under the formula car with safety glasses and a face shield on. Hot metal hurts more than cold metal. Thankfully got it out with the eyewash station. Every time I've gotten metal in my eyes I've had safety glasses on.

What's funny is, I spent the rest of the day continuing what I was doing. My eye felt a little annoying, but i wasn't paying any mind to it.

It wasn't until later that evening when I was out driving that I noticed the wind/air was bothering my eye. So I checked in the mirror and I could clearly see it. Then the pain/panic kicked in.

Are you saving your AF stuff and 3.63 for the street car? In which case, why sell the built bottom end? Why not swap everything over and have a buck nasty street car to compliment your underpowered racecar?

I think he wants to keep AC in his daily, which the AF stuff will not work with. :(

What are the chances my FM cam gear has the stuff to run an NB CMP? I just ordered MS2 and I have no idea how to get a CMP sensor.

What I have:
  • NB CKP and Hall sensor
  • TSE 12-1 wheel where I cut off one tooth
  • Y8s' modded single tooth CAS
  • FM cam gear that probably doesn't have pick-ups for CMP
  • Valve cover with cut belt area since that was smashed in the car it came from
What should I do?

From Y8s, who made it:

That requires pulling the cover, pulling the center trigger wheel screw, and drilling a new small hole for the locator pin in the wheel with the single paddle. Not terribly difficult to do but maybe tricky to get it in the right spot.

Matt
I'm guessing I need to move the CMP tooth closer to "just behind TDC if I use the 12-1 CKP. The CMP tooth needs to drop between the "last tooth" and "first tooth" on the CMP, right? Is this something as simple as visually looking at the CKP and adjusting the CMP?
