I would remove the gearbox first too. The bellhousing bolts aren't that hard to get to with the inlet manifold on. You need to tilt the engine back, I have a pipe clamp which I remove from the pipe and use it as a reverse clamp between the swaybar and sump to hold the engine in the tilted back posit...

I have an 86 Impulse manual and it only covers the G200Z too. Would have to be a supplementary manual. Maybe an 88/89 manual would cover the turbo? Since they no longer made them with a G200Z then.

The silvery oil is probably aluminium, the original box on mine was like that. One of the shift forks had broken off on one side and got munched up.

The black wire is tacho, it comes off the coil neg and splits off into two connections to the wiring harness. One is for the boost control computer & ECU, the other is for the tacho.

That's pretty cool, I like how the American ones were colour coded, never really liked the black garnishes on non black cars. But then my car is black and i'm deleting it anyway :)

Just hang em on the wall :)
I've given up on those things because the JDM ones i've collected have cracks and warping. So on the wall they go and i'm deleting the garnish completely..

Assuming the US Impulse compressor is the same that would be your best bet, there are reco ones on Ebay for less than $200USD including shipping

Looking at this http://microimageonline.com/forums/showthread.php?6352-Koni-Shock-Disassembled Should be able to get the Piazza red rears, pull them apart and make up a longer droop spacer (the white thing). I checked the length I need on mine to stop the spring falling out, about 440-450mm extended...

Yeah the Gemini manual rack is secured laterally by both bushes, dunno why they wouldn't do it with this one.

This is what it looks like, just re-installed all this last week. It's just bent steel flat bar.

Superglue works really well on rubber, should probably work on polyurethane too. I can try it on something here.

Not sure how you'd go welding shims to the side of it could be a bit messy. I'd just buy some steel the right width and thickness and bend one from scratch.

The left bush is fine, that one doesn't provide any lateral support. I only made a mould for the right side bush.

Another option might be if you can find some 1mm rubber sheet you could glue some to each side of the bush to widen it.

Archangel tried them and they were too narrow on his, just copied off the factory ones which are also too narrow. I think he fixed it by splitting the steel bracket and widening it. I wouldn't recommend doing it that way I would make a whole new bracket. When I tried new original ones back in the da...

Nice work thanks for that.

You're right with so much material on that lower front bush the NVH is ok. Felt fine to me. However I hadn't changed the other bushes though as they were still ok.

Heyy you're back, please don't forget to drop that lower manifold assembly into a box and let me know how much i have to pay ya. Could really use it now. Hope that manifold clears the alternator and engine mount? Looks pretty low. Might need more than 1/8" clearance for the diff, it'd move around a ...
