Best place to start

I have had my 89 si for a little while, what I'm wondering is aside from the basic tune up, where would you guys recommend to start adding some new things, ie; intake, exhaust, cams, hoses. I'm not planning on doing a swap because well I'm new and am still learning and don't have the ability to do that yet.

1. Intake - completely custom make your own.
2. Exhaust - They sell clamp or weld on kits, you provide the resonator and muffler and take to a exhaust shop to assemble. Or you can purchase the Pacesetter catback. Its bolt up, but I personally do not like it.
3. Cams - Do not exist, you need to have cam regrinds from a reputable cam shopl like Delta Cams in Tacoma. But even then you need to know the power range of our motors to understand that our motors do not make power past 5500rpm.
4. Hoses - You can talk to Foaly on preludepower about his custom Silicone radiator hoses. He was going to make all the hoses but there was a lack of demand so he only makes the upper and lower radiotor hoses.

Re: Best place to start

Replace the entire carpet and take all seats and shampoo them.

Then while the interior is out, take Lysol or clorax or whatever cleaning agent you prefer and scrub that interior down, and wash it out. With a rag not a hose of course.

Re: Best place to start

Odors can be almost impossible to get out of a car. It depends on where the mice were living in the car. Hopefully they weren't in the AC/heater ducting or you'll have to pull all that apart to clean it out. For interior surfaces, as Sean suggested, replacing the carpet and shampooing the seats (front and rear) are a must. You might also considering replacing the trunk carpet if you can find a replacement.

I had cat urine on my original passenger seat when I first got this car, which shampooing didn't completely eliminate. It gets into the foam, and shampooing doesn't penetrate enough to remove this. I thought about removing the seat cover to see if I could clean the foam padding, but in the end I just replaced the seat to get rid of it when I came across a clean set in the junkyard.

Re: Best place to start

And THAT'S what you get for letting cats drive your car! They are such ANIMALS!!

But seriously, cat urine is hard to get rid of. They actually make special spray to neutralize it, but like Luzer said, it gets in the foam. If you can't find replacement seats or foam, you may be able to take the seat apart, wash out the cloth covering and foam with some of that neutralizer in a large rubbermaid type tote. You can also find where the spray is by using a black light. It actually glows in UV light! Maybe the spot isn't that big and you can minimize the amount of area you need to clean instead of having to/trying to clean it all.

Lemmee guess..the lamp will show spots the same color as the font you used?


Maybe try those little sticks you stick in the vents to make your car like a pine tree.
At least until you get the reason for said aroma isolated.
Don't like pine tree smell? My car smelled musty once so I sprayed all the plastic with lemon fragrance furniture polish. Vinyl looked great and car smelled great.
My son had one setting for about a year. Again musty smell. The pond in the trunk thing and wet back seat (from pond in trunk) from the previous owner. He did the windows and plastics with Robos glass cleaner and the seats with Robos upholstery cleaner. Both have a distinct, clean smell that lasts for weeks. Eagle 1 glass cleaner uses the same aroma, but it absolutely sux as a glass cleaner vs Robos.

Re: Best place to start

Back to the pacesetter exhaust, is it pretty simple to install? I want to do as much as I can myself. So is it basically un bolt the old bolt on the new?

Re: Best place to start

The headers and stuff are bolt in... You can use exhaust clamps to secure the pipes together, as long as they have the "slip-flanges". It isn't that much to have a shop weld the pipes together, and you will save a bit of $$ if you shop around for the parts on eBay, amazon and such.

BTW... I sent you a PM about where to find those Pacesetter Headers BRAND NEW for cheap!

Re: Best place to start

Can you install just the headers and be fine, or do you need to do the whole exhaust as well?

Re: Best place to start

You can run just a header and keep the rest of the exhaust stock in most cases. They are usually designed to bolt onto the stock cat. Keep in mind that the header is combined with a downpipe, so you'll want to install both the header and downpipe. Just make sure the downpipe has a flange that matches up to the cat flange.

Re: Best place to start

This is what the PaceSetter Headers look like that I told you about on Amazon... Except this picture is of the Non-Ceramic Coated ones, (They paint them with high temp paint)... but the mechanical is all the same. (And I found this pic on SummitRacing.com)



Looks like these DO have the stock flanges and SHOULD bolt right up to the stock CAT.

Re: Best place to start

I was going to suggest this place as I had bought all 4 corners, cross drilled & slotted with ceramic pads for $135 and free shipping, but it looks like they went up in price.

But I STILL swear by them.

Re: Best place to start

Tony I've been told that if the 'drilled' holes are drilled after production and not part of the forge process they develop cracks in time when used under heavy duty conditions. Some folks I know with lots of experience avoid the 'drilled' rotors on their money isn't a problem builds, particularly up front. Can't speak from experience 'cause I have just 'slotted' rotors.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Best place to start

Good to know! I have had mine for a year and I haven't gotten any cracks or warpage... They don't have any discoloration either.

I did find the set cheaper if you are interested NWNate:

brakelabs | eBay

They have all variations for sale if you are interested.

But $49 for 2 rotors and 4 brake pads isn't a bad deal at all!

Re: Best place to start

Yeah, I went ahead and ordered those haha could not pass up $49.
I also heard that drilled roters crack easier, also herd slotted where down faster?
