    Your three top irritating pet peeves about your Turbo Regal

    The powermaster fear and the constant wind noise are on my list also. I have crank / manual windows, but I have a '99 TA and used to have a '95 TA that has the slowest of all windows, always has been, my '79 TA has really fast windows. Add to the list: Sunvisor that always flips down on the...

    George Barris RIP

    Yeah surprised not many people realize who he is, or what he created. Batmobile, Beverly Hillbillies car, Monsters car, Red Baron, and The General Lee! I bet everyone has had one of his Hot Wheels cars too and never realized it.

    Life & Death of GN1987

    Sorry to hear about your loss and seeing the pics is upsetting. Good luck with the future LS projects, you have been around here a long time Jimmy! Your presence here on a normal basis will be missed, sure you don't have another TR in your future?

    Watch this guy crash this new $1.9M Ferrari right after leaving the dealership.

    Picked a great place to mash the pedal, busy street with pedestrians and tons of traffic...probably a sports star lol

    How are the "new" Eagle cranks working out?

    None that I saw, I just unwrapped it to check it out, then wrapped it back up, but I did not notice any stamping on it like on the Eagle one stating it was Webers. Yes, the machining Weber does is on the rear seal area. My builder prefers the weber partly for that reason as he thinks they seal...

    So I just received a Weber 4340 crank, it sure is not as shiney as the Eagles on that display!

    Anyone have the cam specs for the 208/208 cam from GN1?

    They make an adjustable pushrod that you use to measure length. I've decided on a 210/210 cam so the hunt is over I hope.

    Vendor that sells JE pistons?

    Cam opinions, size vs use, billet vs austemper, etc

    Thanks for the input bison, I do have 29" tires currently. The GT6131e is about 10 years old, built by Presion, I was one of the first to test that turbo that Harry put together, he had sent me 3 or 4 turbos to test with the combination I had at the time as he was experimenting with smaller...

    Cam opinions, size vs use, billet vs austemper, etc

    Np Nick, the convertor is already on the car and I have been really happy with it's street manners, which is most important over any track downsides with it. I have had several other convertors on other cars that were around the same stall that I hated on the street. I was on the fence about...

    That Eagle box says 4340 not 4130, so they have changed it appears?
