    LS variation help

    Largely depends what you are building? If it's staying a 5.3 I wouldn't waste money on heads, if it's a 5.7 ported 243's will be the best. If your a 6.0 a 4 inch bore can fit ls3 heads and if the bore pops up around 4.125 you can start looking at ls7 heads.

    Purchasing a Rail out of state? NEWB questions

    Perfect! Thank you guys. I know green sticker's are not a part of the smog program. Sure didn't stop CARB from being a part of bikes, atvs, sxs, etc. getting the green light to GET the green stickers. I trust nothing in this state lol Thank you!
  4. I remember back in 07-08, CARB came down on new builds and started mandating that all "manufactured" sand rails needed to pass CARB requirements. Since that time, I sorta stopped paying attention to it. But now that I am at the point in life where I am looking to buy some of these cars I have a question. I am noticing some really attractive Sand rails with AZ, NV, WA titles for sale. While these cars are all titled in their respective states do I run any risk in trying to register that car in CA? Do I have to show the sand rail has a CARB compliant motor if the vehicle is a 2006? 07? 08? Etc. Thanks!

    S4s refreshening costs?? Looking at a rail with one

    Thank you!! I appreciate the feedback. So really, no additional costs than running a 2d car.
  10. Hey guys! seems like my never ending quest for a car continues indefinitely. Looking at a car with an S4S behind a twin turbo redline Northstar. Just wondering what a freshing costs on such a car. Trans was refreshened 20hrs ago by wright. Seller has reciepts from previous shop that “pulled and took to wright”but the cost was lumped in on an invoice with a large maintence overhaul. Seller doesnt have physical wright invoice. I read some people love the trans, others hate them

    Honda 3.5 stored 3 years

    Lots of good info, here is a trick i also learned from firing up sitting projects. You may not need to service injectors, u can pull the line from the fuel pump and using a plastic syringe pump marvel mystery oil or mix up a gallon or so of 40:1 two stroke fuel and prime the fuel system. Injectors can loosen up without a problem. Unplug every coil and pull the spark plugs, turn the engine over until u can see gas vaper being forced out of the cylinder via the spark plug hole. Let the engine sit for an hour, and now do an oil change. U want to make sure any fuel from priming the engine is now leaving in the old Oil. Now with fresh oil leave the spark plugs out, coils still disconnected and now disconnect the injectors and pull power from fuel pump, turn engine over until oil pressure gauge shows pressure. Hook everything back up and fire her for real. You now have primed the oil system and injectors and shouldnt hurt anything in the process

    How To Buy a Funco. Help a Newbie Out.

    The day has finally come to add a mini van er.... a Funco to the fleet. With the wife wishing to do more "back seat duning" than riding her own ATV and kids in the future some day I think the time is right to add a sand rail to the family. I am set on getting a Funco. We were able to dune with a group that had a fleet of Gen 3 Big 5's and they seemed to fit us the best a long with desired ride. The wife like's the ease of getting in and out and the potential to stick 3 people in the back. Where I am seeking help is what would you recommend to a Newbie who is getting into the game? What did you wish you knew when you bought one? I am pretty set on finding a 2D car with a Subie 2.5. Is there anything else you liked? My Price Range is about 23k and it seems that should be an obtainable number for a good quality rig. I have been told to check all hiems obviously and then I was told the rear pivot support area's are known for cracking and so to keep an eye on that as well. Obviously keep an eye on the CV boots, check for slot and also that the axle will pivot back and forth within the cv. I hear the front racks like to crack away from the frame (witnessed it myself) and so to check that area. just looking for input from you all. Thanks!
