    Ignition Timing

    I'm trying to get my head around how to "correctly" set ignition timing. I understand as the RPM band increases the plug needs to ignite sooner to accommodate for a faster moving piston, however I'm trying to understand what indicators provide the information that the timing has been set...

    Hi guys, I was hoping to shed some light on this topic. I'm looking at starting the process of purchasing some turbo bits, and one of the things I was considering was lowering compression with lower comp forged pistons. I was wondering, aside from power loss what adverse affects does lowering...

    Helms Manual?

    Quick question, disregard my ignorance but can anyone explain what helms manual is to me? I downloaded one but it seems to just be a condensed version of the service manual. Am I missing something? Some people swear by it.

    Burnt popcorn smell??

    Hey guys Been quiet for a while moving into a place and saving so haven't spent time or money on my car in a while. I've noticed of late when holding high revs, WOT or downshifting (heel-toe) sometimes the cabin fills with a burnt popcorn-ish smell. It's difficult to explain, but it's almost...

    Rear LCAs

    Hey guys Been quiet for a little while, unfortunately haven't been able to spend a lot of money on the car lately. However I did notice a while back my rear LCA bushings were a little beat. I decided instead of having them pressed out, and purchasing new bushings I would freshen up the rear...

    In car footage recording

    S2000 Cluster/general wiring question

    Hey guys - firstly a fore-word and apology as I know the topic of S2000 cluster conversions has been beat to death, and I know there are heaps of threads around (not that I haven't searched - most threads are really old and pictures are broken) but this is more a question for the...
