Default What M6 tap do I use for the I.L.Motorsport Hood Lift Kit?

The instructions only say an M6 tap, and I need to buy the correct one.

Thanks so much,
Marcello

standard m6 thread is x1.00

youll need a stater tap, and if its a blind hole, depending on the depth, you may need to finish with a bottom tap or plug tap. If youre threading blind aluminum, you can get away with starting and finishing with a plug tap.

Its not what you think it is, its the raising dampers, to eliminate the hood prop, and give you more working room under the hood

Make sure you got the kit that goes on both sides. The single sided one warps hoods.

Yeah I figured that would happen, the kit has two dampers, one on either side.

Thanks

^ will do!

I changed the tire pressures and increased dampening a bit, I hope thats ok with you guys.

I might raise the rear end 1/16, I'm getting a bit of oversteer.

Now you've done it! I don't know what your baseline is or what the car's intent is, but Emilio at 949 Racing has put together a nice general setup page on his website. If anything, it might be good to check your setup against what he's found to work.

I actually have exactly his list of recommended suspension mods. Alignment is set, so I just raise or lower the rear end a bit. Its really amazing how the handling changes from a 1/16 ride height difference.

You can tell a 1/16th of an inch difference?! I can barely tell when my emergency brake is on.

You would want to lower the rear if you are getting oversteer

I meant understeer, I always get under/oversteer confused.

I was understeering, so I raised the rear, now I'm just about neutral, unless the road surface is wet, then I get a bit of oversteer
