[back story for context] About 5 years ago I got the grand idea to turbo my spyder. After buying the full kit with all the options from MWR, and installing it, I fired it up, it ran, but it needed a tune done so that it could be driven, as the base tune even says that it is only to get it on an off a trailer, not to drive. So I started calling around looking for a tuner. To my dismay, nobody within 1000 miles of me would touch the car as they didn't do the install or sell me the parts... 2zz swap, somebody shoot me ..read more

Disclaimer* Before reading further know that only 60% of my projects eventually work out. Some end up on hold due to time and some take several iterations. However, I don't typically post unless I have already purchased hardware with the intent to make something cool. Anyway..... Having addressed most of the weight reduction items on my car I find that not much more can be done to increase performance by cutting mass (yes I am still working on the brake rotor project too). Perhaps it... Active Aero Wing Project | AKA MOCK-Laren Wing ..read more

I'm trying to find out the measurements of the stock factory seats in a 2004, or for that matter any year. I'm mostly interested in the width, but all the numbers would be helpful. I tried searching and read a lot of threads, but could not find exact numbers. Several people make comparisons of this seat vs that seat, but I couldn't find the factory seat dimensions. Trying to figure out exactly how much space there is to work with, if new aftermarket seats are purchased ..read more

Bogging or jerking at constant low RPMs

I have a 2002 spyder, converted from SMT to full manual myself. 6ish months ago I noticed a little bog or sputter going 30 mph in 4th gear. (Constant rpms ~ 2,000). Thought it was a little strange and didn’t really notice it again until a couple months later, the bogging at low rpms kept happening. But it was every once in a while. It’s gotten to the point now where it’s almost everytime I’m under 2,500 rpms, it’s bogs and bucks like a bull. It’s never 100% consistent, but cruising through...
