    Need some opinions on Amp/Sub combination

    ah true, yea I had planned on using the 0gauge wiring from my truck, got 50ft of it in there so there should be plenty lol. I haven't bought them yet, but I had been looking at a similar type R (Alpine SWR-1023D) but the pioneer had better power handling. 800/3000 opposed to 600/1800. I...

    Equ's 1st Ex: 'The eXploder'

    Should probably start a registry :P Well when I was 16 I had saved up the 4000.00 for a vehicle, and found a COMPLETELY stock and mint 1997 Eddie Bauer SOHC with 180K. It sat in the yard, getting driven occasionally, waiting for the G1-G2 period to end.... and since then I've been addicted :P...

So please don't post saying to get a bigger alternator, a cap or more battery's... I want to have both alternators charging all the battery's as...

    got it in :) I threaded a screw into the hole of what was left of the sensor and was able to slowly wiggle it out.

    Woot!! I finally got my 1354 but...

    this is probably going to be a dumb question but I've confused myself... I picked up the 1354 mechanical and found that the speed-o has been snapped off and I'm wondering what I need to put this in my truck... I have a 97 sohc, 5R55E, Control Trac 44-05. I have the new drive-shaft already, do...

    Need Opinions On Picking A New Gear Ratio

    Hello :D I'm going to be upgrading to 35's and 10Inch wide rims on my truck in the summer, my truck handles the 33's fairly well considering its stock (although I'm very lucky to have 4.10 stock...) I was wondering what ratio i should go with? I only need to be able to go up to 110KM or...

    in serious trouble?

    Hey, in the mean time you can put a sheet of clear plastic over the back door (assuming you can still open it. (wrap plastic around lift gate, get someone inside to hold it taunt and then close the door. pillars are the vertical parts of the body of the car that go between the windows. (the gap...

    My 1992 Explorer has a sticking accelerator pedal.

    the first gens are bad for this, on the throttle body there is a black cover over the area above the cables, take this off. you will now see the spring that returns the flap the resting position. clean that out with brake clean then apply WD-40 and move it to WOT/IDLE with your hand. if the...

    Still Hard to start after replacing everything lol.

    Tested the pressure and it goes up to the proper spec at first turn of the key, but then drops down to well below within a few seconds. I would like to do the fuel pressure regulator and intake gaskets, but the stock one seems to be one piece with the braided steel lines and the replacement...

    Hood latch Help

    can you get a wrench/socket in there and unbolt it? I'm pretty sure its just one bolt on each side. I accidentally closed the hood on a rattle can cap one day, and it actually somehow wedged my hood closed.. had to take a pry bar and smash the cap into piece so the pressure was released... any...

    Breaking wheel studs

    Idk that's weird, what did you torque them to? In the future just put a little dab of grease on the end of the nut and then you put it on. Ive always done that and never had a problem.
