  1. Heard a loud knocking after lift. Mechanic dropped oil pan to see worn rod bearings. I purchased some from a parts store but they're not as wide as the ones that came out. Everything matches except the width. Can they still work?
  2. Thanks for the advice. Car, in km, is at 280k so the coils might be weak by now I think.
  3. I hope that solves the issue. Parts here are really expensive though.
  4. I haven't modded the car. I haven't checked the fueling components. Next step is to change the coil packs. Thanks for the response.
  5. Greetings from Barbados. 1. My 2002 2zz Jdm Allex is moving off, bogging a bit, then accelerating smoothly to redline. 2. The idle is steady but the exhaust sounds like the engine has stage 2 cams. 3. The car experiences random backfires when cruising at low speeds. 4. It's struggling to keep up with cars it used to demolish (20v 4age's) I've changed the maf, plugs, filter, and cleaned the throttle body. The car still feels the same. Any suggestions? Thanks guys.
  6. Hi guys I hope all is well. I have been searching the net but to no avail trying to find a smoked fuel door for a 2002 JDM Allex/Sportivo. Does anyone know wher I can order one? Thanks. Kev.
  7. Its not very loud at all. No raspiness throughout the rev range. Video soon.
  8. Removed my hook and got my exhaust installed on the right. Pics soon.
  9. Yup, the tow hook is welded on and our JDM models have a space saver doughnut that cant even fit over the stock front brakes. A flat up front means you always have to put a rear wheel up front and the little spare at the back. Quite a pain.
  10. I live in Barbados and we too have JDM imports. I have bought an oval exhaust which I would prefer to install on the right. The main obstruction is the tow hook. It seems it will have to be cut off for a muffler to fit there properly. Apart from that you can install a cannon style muffler at a ridiculous angle out to the right or run some car-width piping over to the left and install your after market exhaust/muffler. Let me know how it goes if you do an install. I cant find pics of the JDM model exhaust installs anywhere.
  11. Many thanks for the replies guys. Great forum. I think I'm leaning towards the Exedy.
  12. What about the eclutchmasters stage 1? Are they any good?

Which one should I go with? http://www.monkeywrenchracing.com/product_info.php?products_id=1265
  13. Thanks for the replies guys but I live in Barbados. Where online and what brand is recommende?. Nothing above a stage 1 as I am only doing light mods. Thanks again.
  14. Hey guys 2zz Clutch is finally slipping especially in 6th gear. What's a good clutch to buy and where's the best place to order one from?
