Indeed. Which apparently Professor Flitwick in the original Harry Potter series was half goblin and I don't recall it ever being brought up in the movies at least(been way too long since reading the books, but I recall one of the students wondering why he was so short once I think), so there seem to be no bounds in the world of Harry Potter.

I don't think the ST202 ever had SuperStrut as an option, but it's possible someone added it. I think Tein, at least at one point, made springs for both the SuperStrut and standard McPherson strut cars. Perhaps the issue lies there. Maybe it could be the struts if they aren't a reputable brand like KYB, Bilstein, KONI, etc... I can't recall if 5th and 6th gen springs and struts are interchangeable albeit different, but perhaps something is going on there if someone went junkyard shopping for suspension at one point. Which honestly if you're going to lowering springs you should be replacing the mounts and struts anyway if they haven't been recently replaced, so might take a front and rear spring to a local parts house to see if they have the mounts and struts and see if you get a match.

Just trying to find an explanation for your question, it's your fault for bringing it up. laugh.gif

Needs moar Z06

The only problem with the Z06 is that it came as the fixed roof coupe only, the liftback looks so much better. That aside the Z06 is better in most every way over the standard C5.

I tried to find info on whether or not more than house elves exist within the realm of Harry Potter, but really nothing else is ever mentioned. Which brings up the question, why not just call them elves then and why the distinction? Hmm... Oh well. That's ok a lot of the creatures in the Harry Potter universe stray away from mainstream notions, so why not.

It's what's on the inside that counts? Well until J.K. Rowling clears it up for everyone we're just left to speculate I guess.

Indeed, who... Though we shouldn't be so superficial, maybe they loved each other and that's what really matters right?

I know right, I want to know why in J.K. Rowling's mind that elves should be ugly. I suppose to be different since usually elves are depicted as attractive, regardless of their height. That and I guess them being hideous falls in line better with them being more or less slaves.

Just throw in a LSD and make the CV axles as equal as possible, should mitigate most of it. First V8 swapped 6th gen, could be special.

Hmmm... Let's give benefit of the doubt since they just say elf and not an exact race that the elf looked like Arwen from the LOTR trilogy:


Or if it were male elf and human female that the elf looked like Link from Breath of the Wild when infiltrating the Gerudo town:


I mean who wouldn't want to **** either, am I right?

Actually could probably do a LS4 since it's transversely mounted...

I quite like the filtered water and ice cubes via the Samsung refrigerator, though the refrigerator is brushed stainless and not shiny so there's that. Also wooo new wheels.

Hmm, could use your new third gear for getting all the dimensions and start making them with CNC machines. Make bank?

That seems a bit excessive, unless that's including the transmission. The clutch better be some kind of multi-plate at that price... I dunno though, for what the V160 sells for and costs to rebuild in the long run you very well might save money and headache sadly. Plus the TR-6060, and especially the Magnum, are a lot higher rated than the V160's 370 ft lb rating being 600 and 700 ft lb respectively so you'll probably never have problems unless you just do something terribly stupid.

Yeah I had seen where the CD009 gets mentioned often for various engines, but then don't ever see many people actually using it. Though it seems like various swap kits are out there I guess the trouble comes with mounting the transmission in the car, getting everything connected and working, and the drive shaft. That would be the way to go though financially speaking if it were no harder to accomplish swapping in versus the T-56/TR-6060.

Garages are the best, they let you hold onto cars indefinitely with no side effects.

Unless someone rams their two ton land yacht through the garage door, anyway.

I did the same, lol.

You know how it is, people want to spend as little as possible for as much as possible. In fairness I reused the throttle body and upper intake manifold gaskets when I replaced the injector o-ring seals, but they're metal and I didn't have the $30 or so to spare at the time. Plus it was a 7A, those only deserve the most basic of maintenance.

Ahhh ok, that's not bad at all then. I was figuring $250 or so overnight from Japan and all that.

Maybe they were always losing paper clips so wired in a switch instead?

$3 of silicone>$16 of gaskets, clearly.

If the starter is still good otherwise you could epoxy the ear back on with metal epoxy, or if you're a welding savant just fix it that way. Hard to tell but it looks like you could reinforce the topside with a washer if you were to epoxy it. Or if you're rich just buy a new one, either way.

I got it, sell the V160 and the LAST 3rd gear for lots of money and then TR-6060 swap it instead. tongue.gif

Everything is cheaper than the V160/161, I mean come on just their fluid is like $60 a quart. tongue.gif I think the T-56 benefits from the fact later models had carbon synchronizers from the factory, so they're under half as much if I recall correctly. Gourmet dinner, hmm depends on where you go and how hungry they are...

Well he finally bought 2K clear coat and plastic repair, no filler though. Guess if it's warm enough this weekend he might do the headlight door to see how well the paint matches, though if it doesn't then I don't know what to do. I doubt the SEM or other off the shelf mixes will do any better. Bleh...

Psssh, that wouldn't make any sense after just selling it. I miss mine too, but the problem I have with most cars is the problem I still have with it. Engine swaps shouldn't be your most important mod, had we at least gotten some form of the ST202 I'd probably consider it before a 7th gen GT-S. I don't ask for much when it comes to power, but a direct carryover from the Corolla and Camry is just lame. At least the Miata offsets its 323 engine with RWD shenanigans and a bespoke platform. That said IF I had a need for FWD/AWD I would probably get another and I constantly recommend them to people.
