Heck yeah and I drive it hard too. I just blindly followed the TSB and only recently looked up recommended max torques for M24x1.5 threads. With the thousands of miles of heavy use and track time,...

A couple thoughts that may either shed light or be completely useless:

1) Like flanders said, have you confirmed that oil pressure is good when the problem occurs just for peace of mind that it's...

It is magnetic, but that doesn't tell me much... I attached it to a really strong magnet that tends to magnetize anything iron that gets near it, so even if it wasn't a magnet before, it is magnetic...

Minor update: the piece is very brittle. I went to attach it to another strong magnet and it broke as it flung itself into the magnet. It could be a piece of a magnet from one of the sensors or...

I searched and couldn't find anyone who posted the torque on the nuts after 60 degrees. I've done the TSB twice and have tried to measure the torque each time. You guys may be surprised to know...

I didn't listen to it with headphones, but it honestly sounds okay to me. My AP1 sounds just like that when you open the hood and get close. It sounds almost like knock or a bit "diesel-ish" but I...

Sorry to semi-hijack, but on the subject of replacement parts, can someone give me a rough estimate of the value of an ap1 engine in good health with 85k miles?

That sounds like the AP1 that I drive regularly. Of course, the ticking may be louder than mine in real life... it's difficult to tell from the video. Did it get louder suddenly?

I'm sort of curious and didn't see any threads about it... what's generally involved in replacing the valves? This might help the OP make a decision IF he does have a bent valve.

It looks like the stock top hats would work. The lower spring perches on the F&F have cylindrical ledge that keeps the springs centered. I can machine down those ledges to match the diameter of the...

To run B Street class in autocross, the car must have stock springs. I'd need to spend thousands to be competitive in STR class, which is where these coilovers currently put me. I bought the car...

Stock Springs on Function and Form Shocks

I'm trying to install OEM springs on some Function & Form Type 2 coilovers. I have 2 question:

It seems like I'll be able to run in the street class which will be fun. Now I just gotta get these stock springs on these coilovers. Unless I fabricate something it looks like I'll need some...

How about $20 rotors?

I am on a budget, so I've spent some time trying to find the cheapest brake rotors I could find. Some people who track their car (and therefore crack rotors several times per year) say get the...

Ok got it. Thanks!

Autocross B Street "Coilovers"

I bought my s2k with coilovers already installed. If I replace the springs with stock springs, can I use the adjustable shocks that are on it now and be class legal?

Quick question: If I want to run AP2 rear wheels with AP2 stock sized tires all around (non-staggered), can this be accomplished with just a 5mm spacer up front? Will I also need to re-bore the...
