Commit all the heresy.


#5893

I take it you made that beast?


#5894

No. I would rat rod my bronco though. White wall off road tires. And red and white pinstripe on black paint.


#5895

Pulled the motor out of my subi and tore it down for headgaskets then found a solution to never do them again.


#5896

I like that solution, but I have a few concerns about that choice of motor.

Inb4: baited


#5897

Couldn’t afford the performance model. This one was free though. Just need to tape it in place and glue the exhaust on.


#5898

Make sure you have plenty of elbow grease for that job. Oh and don’t forget your headlight fluid.


#5899

Upgrade to an ej253/257 and headgaskets will be a thing of the past. Then you just have to worry about cracking ringlands :grin:


#5900

I made an egr block off plate. Aka absolute cancer according to Cali.


#5901

thought headlight fluid wasn’t used for many years on this model,
Did you mean the blinkerfluid?
If not topped off it affects the fog-lights for some reason…


#5902

Got some condensation… from standing still in winter conditions


It has been running stationary for a while, hence the carbon blackness.
A couple a refs later…


#5903

I don’t understand why trucks look like a 2 bit hooker at a sema or truck show.


#5904

This is known to the state of California to rustle Jimmies.

I too have deleted my EGR but seeing as I’ve never pulled the engine I don’t have block off plates, I’ve just corked the hoses.


#5905

Haha. I couldn’t decide which one to recommend, but Red vs Blue came to mind and they said headlight fluid, so that’s what I think it needs.


#5906

anyone got rec’s on a double din android radio? preferably with gps and that will work with my existing bluetooth + steering wheel controls


#5907

I’ve been looking at those, but I haven’t tried any yet. I’d also be interested to know if anyone here has gotten one at some point.


#5908

really the only one ive heard about is atoto


#5909

I just searched for “android head unit” in amazon, and been going through those.
If I get one it’ll probably be this one.


#5910

the reason i like the atoto one is cuz its got obd link so you can use an app (torque i think) to show all kinds of info, has a live tpms display with an addon, dash and back up cam addons too
it is 350 or so tho, so not cheap


#5911

I’d have to look again, but I thought that one did have an ODB link, or maybe it was an option. I’ll look tomorrow (must sleep).

I’ll also have a look at yours.
