I'd be up for a cabin even it's just one night or something. But the drive is only about 4 hours which isn't bad. Definitely can be done in a day's time.

Lol but seriously though a lift makes a pretty huge difference when it comes to ease of access and work.
Plus the winter is cold, no excuse though if your garage was heated.

Dang that's bad. I just get shivers looking at those images. I cannot believe it would get that bad.

Friend dropped off the old PC I built them so I can see if I can reuse the case and they wanted their old hard drives in the new system so they have all their old stuff.

Holey ole **** me what the ****. I need to figure out how to put some pictures up here because just the outside...there's rust on the top of the case and paint missing on a whole corner of the top. Oh they've been using it as a foot stool. Is that mouse **** on top of it? Yeah probably. I haven't even opened it yet. I think I'm just going to tell them they need a new case because I don't really want to work with this nasty thing. I'll glue a wooden board on top of it so they don't bang up the top using it as a foot stool this time...for ****s sake.


Lol just use imgur. I started using that after PhotoBucket hit the bucket (lol). Once you upload it then just use the "direct link." Make sure to select the image size too, as that helps.
With that description I am intrigued to find out what it looks like now.

you can probably downsize all of those gauges down to 1 (maybe 2) if you use the BTI Gauges CAN gauge depending on if you decide to go standalone or not. I say that even though I'm running 3 gauges on my set-up (Boost, BTI CAN gauge, and AEM wideband). lol


Ha ha the plan wasn't to go standalone since I'm not sure where I'll be going w/ any power upgrades yet.
Do you have integrated pillar mounts like this?


I want to see if you could possibly "plastic weld" a gauge pillar mount onto the OEM one but I'd figured it probably will not look as good.
But this one here from ortizcustompods is so expensive... $219!

Started stockpiling parts to install once spring comes:
Gauges (previous post)
Bought the Runabout Weighted Shift Knob from Superklasse. Went for the red stitched for a more OEM look.
Also bought Bill Dana's 986 caliper bracket and A4 rotor adapter.

Love the RGB. What are the specs? The only thing wrong with that wallpaper is that it’s not screen size. I would prefer a 993 but I wouldn’t kick a ‘90 964 out of bed.

Crappy pic but you get the idea.


PC itself:
Asus ROG STRIX RTX 2070 Super
MSI x570 Carbon PRO WIFI
AMD 3700X
Corsair H115i AIO cooler (+2 140mm RGB fan)
Corsair Spec-Omega RGB Mid Tower (+2 120mm RGB fan)
Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 3466 CAS 16
Western Blue Digitbal 1TB SSD M.2 (probably get a second 1 TB NVME)

Other stuff:
Corsair K95 keyboard
Corsair Glaive mouse
Dell S2716DG monitor (1440p, 144hz, g-sync)

He he I would be okay w/ either tbh. But the price for these old ones are wayyyyyyy over-priced at the moment. Sure they're good, but I wouldn't be able to spend that much.

QUOTE (slavie @ Jan 6, 2020 - 12:08 AM) *
Honestly, don't care about air cooled 911's - hyped up prices, nobody drives them because they're all "collector cars", crap AC, all the usual issues that come with old cars. No thanks, I'll take a 996/7.
Was checking out 944's for some time, though they've gone up in price, a lot, so I'm out. Boxsters are now cheaper and better in every way.

And I'm glad AMD is back in town. Always had AMD back in the day, Duron 700, Athlon 3200, Phenom X4, then X6, but had to switch to Intel for a while (i5-760, then i5-4670k) because AMD had nothing competitive. Ran right back to AMD with R5 1600, now R5 2600X. Never liked Intel's business practices - price gouging, forcing people to upgrade MB with every new gen, among others. Vega 56, 970 Pro NVMe, 16GB G.Skill RAM (also cannot get it to work at advertised speeds... ehh), Asus X470-I complete my miniITX build.


Agreed on the price, I know of a guy who owns like 20 near perfect models of the 964/993/etc. I wouldn't mind a boxster; but I think I'd rather go w/ the hardtop Cayman. If I could I would love a 997.2 4S (the S is good; but living in MN having that extra grip is nice).
Yeah, I was never AMD; but from all the research and my buddies AMD is definitely putting Intel on suicide watch w/ their new thread-ripper. Lisa has really turned the company around.

Hate to break it to ya, but your wallpaper is wrong.
And yea, def budget a GPU upgrade - RGB action on your current one is weak.


Lol but I wouldn't mind a 964 tbh, although if I ever did get one it'd probably be a 977.2 instead. Yeah the 2070 super here should do me good for now; and I didn't want heavy rgb as it can get annoying. Even w/ these all the lighting sits at 50% brightness only.

QUOTE (Bitter @ Jan 3, 2020 - 7:41 PM) *
I upgraded my Core2Duo E8400 to a 2700X with 32GB DDR4 3400 and carried over my RX580 from another PC, gathering the rest here and there. Scored a RM1000X for $100 shipped so plenty of power lol.


Nice! I never done AMD but w/ this build I went w/ the 3700x. I only have 16gb DDR4 3466. Dang $100 only?!?! That's a steal!

It was now or probably never... So I gave up a car part to build my PC. Got it completed right before Christmas. Runs beautifully, and I love it.
Spent way more than I had intended; but I'd figured everything is good and the only thing that would need upgrading in the future is probably the GPU.

Bro this is rad!!! I'd be too afraid to take up on that kind of project given what I know and what I actually have access to. Best of luck so far man!
And yeah the Blinky Project! Some stuff they do there is both effective and practical for the cost perspective.

So help me out here, going to try and get parts for building one on a budget of up to $1500 (PC alone) w/ Black Friday sales coming up.
One of my buddies stumbled upon PC part picker which I liked their build --> https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/Thwrxr/excel...streaming-build

Thoughts on this? Can it be better for the same price?

Goal of the build is to eventually do some VR; but for now the heaviest taxing game I would play is GTAV.

You could always try to go a FWD w/ Electric RWD to make it "AWD." You'll probably get rear biased for low end depending on the amount of power your electric motor will output. Given the rise of electric now and days, it's something we'll have to learn to embrace for the car enthusiasts spirit to possibly live on in the everyday person.

Is it better to swap my st or just get the 96 gt4


The question to answer is: What's the purpose of the car?
(200-300 hp FWD daily? Or uncommon 250-300 hp AWD car?)

Cost wise though? Probably just swap. Daily driver? Probably still swap (unless you get a LHD version, else think about drive through lol).
For pretty much everything else... GT4 ftw.

Same question, planning on going to junkyard to get more clusters so it's not so expensive lol.

That's quite some damage, it shouldn't be too expensive to fix; but then again with an accident like that I would still be a bit afraid.
My suggestion is to hold and wait for a GT instead, since it'll be a much easier staring position than a ST if you want to modify it.

Here's a link of the differences: http://www.6gc.net/information/4

Don't forget to use the Amazon and Ebay links too! I know many of us use one or the other. I think this way you can indirectly donate to Coomer as well!

In regards to the 5SFE, there's not a lot in regards to cost+performance vs a 3SGTE/3SGE. Most people will say for cost+performance+ease the 3SGTE is by far the best. Drops right in, enough aftermarket support, and motor can handle power.
The 3SGE (Beams) is a good N/A, although there's not a lot you can do after since it's pretty much at it's peak. With a bit of work you can try the 1MZ; some more work you can do the 3MZ instead; and with much more work the holy 2GR.

This isn't to say you can make power w/ the 5S; but it's more expensive. You could however if you have the know how, to do the 5SGTE (I think 5S head on 3S block).

It's been a while, have some little updates here and there.
Been working OT so money flow has been nice enough for me to get parts for the car.

First things first, what I was planning on doing:


Along the way before getting an alignment I decided to replace both my outer axles w/ some cheap Import Direct from Oreilys.
Given the spacers on the axle, the boots are bound to rip regardless. I have to look into seeing if I can reduce the length.

Back to the main thing though: basically a major rework on my wheel setup. I finally got around to getting 5mm spacers along w/ the standard and dots 1-3 bolts. Additional was a rear windshield wiper bolt clip, a paint pen, a TRD windshield banner, and a 7gc steering wheel.

Before the main thing, wiper clip! Definitely exposes how faded the rest of the wiper is. I forgot that for my front I'm missing one so I'll probably get that later too.


I knew my rear was pretty bad when it came to camber, and I wanted less w/o major rubbing of any sort.
All in all I traded in the 15mm spacers for 5mm so the wheel sits further inside. Keep the dot 3 crash bolts though for alignment.


It doesn't look bad but I actually had about -3 camber in the rear when I went in for the alignment.
Speaking of that, I did go into a buddies of mine and had my wheels aligned.
First time the car was on a lift under my possession, so I decided to check out underneath and also the CAT length.
Not bad overall, dirty but still clean enough for me to not worry about it (yet?).


We took about 6 hours doing the alignment b/c of (eventually finding out) the front axle spacer.
For the "spirited-driving" setup the idea was to get -2.0 front/-1.5 rear w/ little + toe. However based on my setup there were some issues:
- Even w/ the Dot 3 crash bolts in the rear, I was only able to achieve -1.3.
- With the fronts, b/c my right axle spacer is too thick, running anything less than -1 will bind the axles.
- Even w/ the Eibach crash bolts and the coilovers set to max, we were still only able to achieve -1.3.

So all in all I have 0 front/-1.3 rear w/ little + toe. The next things to do before another alignment are:
- Reduce the passenger axle size from 1" to 0.5" if possible. This should give it enough space so I can run -2.0.
- Replace the standard bolts with crash bolts for my lower strut bolts on both ends. Probably a dot 3 up front and dot 2 in the back.

Nice thing about the lift was I was able to easily measure the CAT length (12.5") which fits the LCE pipe I later installed (sorry no pictures).
The LCE pipe was only 2.25" in inlet/outlet size compared the the piping (2.5"); however w/ the play area on the bolt inserts I was able to make it work.

I know LCE has a 2.5" one but at 17.5" length. I didn't want to have to send it to a shop to do some cut and weld atm so I opted for the standard 12.5".
I still wanted to keep it a little quite but also free up the exhaust. I'd guess even w/ 0.25" less diameter the free-flowing of the test-pipe should be better flowing then w/ a 2.5" CAT (could be wrong though).

Original: CAT, LCE test pipe: Test-Pipe

How does it sound compared to the CAT though? Sounds just a tad louder; but still pretty quiet nonetheless thanks to the SP2.
Not what I wanted exactly; but not so much louder which I'm pleased about. (Tried it "open," NOPE TOO LOUD.)

Looks-wise, the rear are definitely straighter, which helps w/ the wearing. As for the fronts, w/ the 0 camber it looks a bit like they're poking just a bit. But I'm okay with it, since I already have a higher height I left the car at so I can travel long distances.

Took it out for one last end meets before the salty season appears and I have to store my car:


Last but not least, there was a guy selling some AEM gauges nearby so I went ahead and bought them.
Boost (30-4406), Oil Temp (30-4402), Oil Pressure (30-4407), and A/F (30-4110). He luckily had all the wiring and gave me some free mounts; but I may not end up using them.

That's pretty much it for the year probably. The cold is settling in and the body work will probably be on hold until after.

Btw, I didn't install the steering wheel. The stitching needs rework, so I'll probably do that first. But it did give me a chance to see the wiring.

Found out that the cruise control wiring is different (compared it to my brothers 6gc, same year); so I'll have to look at that some more.
Removed the cruise control switch though, which is nice to not have it there although I gave up my horn lol.
