    89 Manual Transmission M5R2 and parts

    Pictures added above. Since several people have asked, the clutch pedal assembly is not for sale. As I removed parts, I noticed that I modified the attachment of the clutch pedal/master cylinder a few years ago. I had a problem with the plastic clip breaking while driving so I made a more...

    89 Manual Transmission M5R2 and parts

    I will be selling my M5R2 transmission and related bits. Everything is still in the car, but I wanted to get this out there in case any of you guys were in the market for some of these parts. Do you need a bunch of parts for your manual swap? Need a good shifting trans? I am selling these...

    Derek's Project GFP

    I think there is a link to them on the "index page" but I dont remember for sure or not (I'm not a paying member right now). Someone else who is a member and familiar with them could chime in. They are very useful, Ive been using mine a lot lately cleaning up unused connectors and what not. I...

    I can hardly think with all this DRONE...

    Ive thought about this a lot with those vortex mufflers. I never got around to doing it, but I concluded that the best solution was to make the tube length adjustable. Guess and test, then figure out the length that works and then weld it up solid.

    I can hardly think with all this DRONE...

    Im a few dates late on this comment... dont get the Cherry Bomb Vortex mufflers. I had a dual 2.5" to a magnaflow res, to single 3", split into dual 3" and cherry bomb vortex mufflers out back. The drone was terrible. I used the pypes pro race muffler on my turbo v8 project and thought it...

    Post yours or others moderate to heavily power modded MN12 car pics here

    its a SHP block with main studs. The goals for the project are 700-1000whp and its built accordingly (at least the motor is anyways). and yeah, someone picked up the hot side i previously built several months ago.

    Post yours or others moderate to heavily power modded MN12 car pics here

    Im not sure if this qualifies as a serious build or not, but I am currently building a 427 sbf twin turbo setup. I hope to have it running next summer. I previously had a junkyard 351 single turbo setup that you can read about here...

    New license plate for the '94 Blackbird

    In NC, the car must be manufactured before 1981 to be considered antique. That's pretty cool that VA lets you do that. NC is getting pretty bad on the fees and taxes... must be from all the snowbirds and halfbacks. :(

    Derek's Project GFP

    Thanks for the compliments and encouragement Dave, I did finally figure out what caused the bearing failure. I dont think i mentioned it, but when i took everything apart the first time, I replaced the oil galley press in plugs with threaded NPT plugs. I went back and double checked these...

    V8 swap

    i agree, find a whole car instead. its a pain trying to source the harness bits and such. you have to deal with powering the eec, as the sc uses the IIRC, but the 5.0 uses a relay in the main fuse box that the SC doesnt have. The tach is different between the SC and 5.0 cars, so you have to...
