Re: -89 Piazza Turbo HBL - Kaizen Racing Project 2

Sounds like an electrical problem. Check your spark plugs for any ceramic insulation cracks, have an electrician check your leads, and distributor, etc. Some of this stuff can be visually inspected, eg check the leads are properly connected to the plugs but if you’re still scratching your head then ...

Re: -89 Piazza Turbo HBL - Kaizen Racing Project 2

Awesome update mate, sounds like you’ll have a little time up your sleeve to to get those shocks in. The 5 lug conversion will be interesting to follow too 👍🏼

Another custom touch that I finished several weeks ago. Been slowly chipping away at the engine bay, and this time I designed another laser-cut stainless steel plaque. I faithfully reproduced the original intercooler sticker in size and font to maintain that original factory look at first glance. 00...

I designed a custom bracket for the new IGN -1A smart ignition coil from diyautotune.com that was installed before the dyno run. The coil packs 103mJ per spark and a maximum current of 19A (81,000 volts). The bracket is laser cut 4mm mild steel, then powder coated. DE44ADD5-F63B-492C-ABFD-F0C01AEF1B...

Re: The Piazza shock absorber bible!

Be sure to add part numbers for those spax shocks, if they’re the shortened versions as described above, how much they cost, and where you purchased them from for the benefit of others who may be interested.

😆 I’m waiting to get my car back from my dyno tuner maybe next week, then I’ll post up some pics.
Meanwhile here’s a small teaser for now of one of things I was working on. 🤫

Looks so much better now. Well done. Btw are they the same quad lights I gave you, or you bought a new set?

Re: -89 Piazza Turbo HBL - Kaizen Racing Project 2

The wheels do look good against the black bodywork. What is the tyre width on those new rims?
Just need to lower it a little and you’re done in the looks department. Awesome updates mate.

The rubber trims on the bottom of the B pillar cover are definitely there. I wasn’t able to remove them, along with the side rubber trims before the respray. The little top rubber trims were the only pieces I was able to carefully remove, which were glued back on afterwards.
