Anyway on with the parts. First off I would like to say one thing about the motor mounts I ordered. Unfortunately, or for all I know this could be for the better. Touge Factory isn't going to be carrying Avid Mounts anymore (guess that explains the crazy sale price) and they had run out of the 90A bushings. Since they aren't carrying them anymore they couldn't get me a set of 90A but they did have some 75A and solid trans mount options which I decided to go with. I think these should be plenty stiff and if not I'm sure I can get in touch with Avid Racing directly and order a pair of bushings for fairly cheap.
Now I think that should cover all of my part arrivals. Time to move on to what's been keeping me busy this past week. My lady love, Becca, had her birthday on April 6th. I think I might have been more excited about it then she was. Mainly because I couldn't wait to give her the gifts I bought her. I did a lot of research and came to the decision it was best I fork over some cash and purchase her a proper professional quality tripod and fluid video head. She is going to be documenting my drift season this year after all, and be making some videos on the side so I know it'll go to good use.
With how happy I've been with ACT clutches over the years, and how satisfied I have been with my 6 puck unsprung in the 240 we decided that would be the best route to go with the Z32. Also knowing the clutch in the car has been slipping and sliding more than socks do on a freshly polished wood floor I figured she was going to need a flywheel too which I surprised her with.
For those of you who don't know, I have had one bad experience when it comes to clutches and flywheels...Flywheel bolts are my enemy. I've had them back out on me not once, but twice. After that happened to me, I've vowed to never reuse flywheel bolts no matter how relatively new or nice of condition they are in. With Becca's car, I want to do everything nice and proper. Build it to be strong and reliable, so I looked around for some ARP bolts which I found they don't make kits for the Z32. Luckly tho after looking around long enough I did find a guy who sent a stock flywheel bolt off to ARP to have them make him a huge batch of bolts which he sells in packs of 8. Boo Ya! Got some ARP flywheel bolts! Remember, just because something isn't out there on the market, doesn't mean you can't get it.
While waiting for the headers to arrive to continue work on the car I decided it would be a good time to delete this junk EGR system on the car which weighed around 10lbs and didn't really do anything other then clutter up what little room there already is.
And one last thing, my car was washed again for a change! See you guys next post!
