It all really depends on what you need from the WM system. If it's purely just for safety, you'll lose a small bit of power and run richer but you still get all of the good stuff that comes with it....

The brutal reality of it is that the stock seats actually sit pretty low. I fit a Motorsport Recaro Pole Position in my Touring so I would have more head clearance and it did work but it's a tight...

I believe that base pressure should be about 40-43psi so it should be lower when the car is idling technically. It sounds like a mechanical issue if you don't see any leaks anywhere. I would almost...

As of today, I have sent off my front bumper to finally get painted and I figured it would be the best time to put the Sakebomb Garage dual oil cooler kit on. This has to be one of the best fitting...

If it seems to absolutely come down to it, I will keep the stock throttle body and delete the thermowax system for simplicity sake. Being able to adjust the throttle curve with the Haltech, I would...

When you use a wideband controller, you should only be referencing the Bosch LSU 4.9 sensor the controller came with. The oem narrowband shouldn't even be hooked up to anything especially if you're...

Just in both leading holes should work best since they're lowest on the housings. I would probably check your fuel tank and consider getting the injectors cleaned. 12 years can do some serious stuff...

If the rotary doesn't fit your needs, I would recommend just getting a Skyline if you're dead set on an RB25 and big power. Not being able to drive a car really kills motivation and if you don't have...

There isn't much more to say but it's vital that the cooling system is bled properly. It will spike up pretty fast if there is air in it. Generally, on my touring (in Oregon also) it sees around 185...
