  • January 07 2019, 06:53:47 PM Scoobum: Great writeup on the other board by Patrick Rubio why you should always stay with the stock turbo oil return line.
  • January 07 2019, 08:09:55 PM Norm340: Could you post a link, please and thanks
  • January 07 2019, 08:35:07 PM Scoobum: Patrick is at reply 15...[link]
  • January 08 2019, 11:12:35 AM nocooler: Most people overlook crank case venting too, if it’s pressurized the oil doesn’t want to return.
  • January 08 2019, 07:50:50 PM gusszgs: Thanks Earl...I got it off
  • January 09 2019, 09:24:09 AM gusszgs: Guys, who carries the best door weatherstrippi ng for our TR’s?
  • January 09 2019, 08:08:36 PM daveismissing: Highways Stars I would think
  • January 09 2019, 08:42:34 PM gusszgs: Actually I should have worded it differently lol what repop’d weatherstrippi ng gets the nod. I’m looking to do the ones around the doors
  • January 09 2019, 08:54:18 PM daveismissing: I 'm thinking Glen tries to get the best product he can, so I give his choice serious consideration
  • January 10 2019, 09:48:34 AM gusszgs: Highway Stars?
  • January 10 2019, 11:15:02 AM Steve Wood: After a lot of reading a few months ago, I bought them from Gbody as they reportedly fit properly and the holes in them lined up with the holes in the sheet metal.  They did fit perfectly.
  • January 10 2019, 04:59:06 PM gusszgs: Just got off phone with Highway Stars, they are looking into decent door weatherstrippi ng. They weren’t happy with who they were using. Also, it looks like they will no longer be shipping to Canada. This customs crap is really pissing me off
  • January 10 2019, 07:24:20 PM daveismissing: Glen and Leslie (Highway Stars) have been good to us Canucks over the years. Too bad
  • January 10 2019, 08:26:31 PM 1KWIKSIX: Jim (gussets), PM Sent
  • January 10 2019, 08:27:03 PM 1KWIKSIX: Sorry gusszgs (bloody predictive text)
  • January 10 2019, 08:57:22 PM daveismissing: actually- gussets was quite funny
  • January 10 2019, 09:11:39 PM gusszgs: Lol, I have a gusset between 3&5 on the Limited
  • January 10 2019, 09:16:08 PM Steve Wood: lolol
  • January 15 2019, 04:35:52 PM gusszgs: Tip for ya guys if your installing a rear wheel cylinder on a TR. Jamb a 13mm long socket between the new wheel cylinder and axle to hold in place of your alone. It holds the cylinder in place tight to the backing plate.
  • January 15 2019, 04:37:43 PM gusszgs: Just tap the socket straight down til it contacts the axle. Then you can move on to that lovely clip
  • January 15 2019, 05:20:10 PM Steve Wood: Those clips can be a pain
  • January 15 2019, 05:52:36 PM gusszgs: They really are Steve lol I got it but not without improvisation
  • January 16 2019, 09:47:49 PM daveismissing: I'm thinkin' Barrette Jackson prices are a bit soft overall so far?
  • January 17 2019, 01:50:23 PM 1 RARE T: The white Limited with 55K miles went for $38,500  It was'nt THAT nice.
  • January 17 2019, 04:06:06 PM wmsonta: I may need to rethink the price for mine. That kind of money, the GN won't be the one I keep. My Nova is sold and will be going back to Tx. 5 left.
  • January 17 2019, 04:14:14 PM gusszgs: That Ltd kinda shocked me. I have one with factory hole in the roof and is a factory code 19U
  • January 17 2019, 04:15:25 PM gusszgs: Anyone in GTA have a low boost actuator for a factory TA style turbo?
  • January 18 2019, 05:49:55 PM Scoobum: Scoob has a few memories...[link]
  • January 18 2019, 06:08:37 PM daveismissing: And you gave it all up to bolt on mufflers... :)
  • January 18 2019, 06:18:21 PM Scoobum: Scoob was the best at it...period. Custom Automotive machine shop was on Dufferin...jus t south of the 401...and then moved to highway 27 and Rexdale blvd. UAP took it over shortly after I left...and ran it into the ground. The remants of CAMS is a crank grinding shop in Toronto somewhere.
