Grounds are fine unfortunately. I'm really hoping its the starter at this point but I don't believe it will be.Id check the ground strap for the starter, and ground at the battery. Bad ground can cause relay to click and starter not to go. If you decide to sell the r160 surtrac I might be interested.
I could still drop the car if I really wanted too, but I would kill any decent amount of suspension travel. You'd be riding on the bumpstops if you went any lower I imagine.I'd personally stay away from any roll overs. if not, make sure you check for glitter in the oil. They tend to get oil starved upside-down. I'm trying to get as much suspension and brake stuff sorted before a swap comes up for my gf. But again that's me. If your gonna do a full drive train swap it may be best to just do it all from one car, seems alot easier and cheaper.
I was wondering if your 8in groundcontrol springs are as low as they'll go or is there more drop in them? I'm torn between them and a pair of 7in. I figure I'll want the 8in all the way down or the 7 all the way up. Not sure whats gonna work better.
I had the same idea about the cluster harness, but have yet to ask them. I imagine it shouldn't be a problem. I like the idea and simplicity of bootsing the 22e but I'm not sure how it would hold up to track days. Then again I was slightly worried about my 25d, but it ran like a champ and is still going.for monies/power..
buy a complete 22e (maf) and toss it in. its a plug and play affair and will run on the 25d ecu. then boost it with subachad up and downs, and wrx stuff. you can run up to about 11 psi on it without tuning a thing.
then just have iwire make you a harness to jump from oe harness to the ver6 cluster.
