Hks Usa


Recommended Posts

Not overtly surprising given the global climate and the fact the US is just going further and futher down the toilet!

I think this will be a sign of things to come for the yanks, and not just in Japanese Automotive bits.

haha yeah - what ash said kinda made me laugh - not to say this is NOT a bad thing but i am pretty sure that the fact that an aftermarket parts manufacturer pulling it's operations out of the USA is going to be the LEAST of the average american person's worries...

...poor guys ...

and sonnyQ, when you say that "america deserves it" or "serves em right"

..you dont actually mean that, do you?

if so - what do you mean by that exactly? surely you can't say that the american people are deserving what is happening to them now...

America's situation wasn't the fault of the american people nor do I believe any person in this day and age deserves to live below the poverty line. If that's what you are eluding to...

They dont deserve to be in the situation there in but I guess its life, and life aint always fair. If they had someone who knew how to manage their countries economy it would help. :P

    • That's somewhat of a mixed message or confabulation of two different things. Point 1. Yes, it is generally a bad idea to tap anything into the FPR connection because when it goes wrong the lean condition is very destructive. No, it doesn't go wrong often, but when it does, it is usually because the ignorance of the failure mode is combined with sufficient general ignorance that the failure becomes more likely through ineptitude. Thus, it is generally easier to simply say "don't do it" than try to have a nuanced discussion. Point 2. The Neo's boost sensor "failure mode" should you tap into its connection and have that connection fail is not severe at all. But this is where the confabulation occurs, because you made it sound like tapping into the FPR on a Neo was not as bad. There wasn't any need to bring the Neo's boost sensor up as it was lacking in relevance, even with its previous mention in this thread. /pedant mode.
    • A few things to consider: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Many years ago I replaced all my bushings front and rear with superpro polyurethane bushings. Sure they've been fine. But the castor isn't adjustable and is slightly out, the camber adjustment bolts aren't the greatest and most secure way of adjusting them. If I were to do them again I'd probably just replace the arms with aftermarket ones. I used a 5 ton press to get everything out. The biggest pain is having a wide selection of metal pipe pieces that are strong enough to press things out with. The rear hub bushings gave me PTSD.
    • It will work when it works, the problem is what happens when it doesn't work. The failure mode of the FPR hose popping off is bad news if you get into boost. If you tee it off the factory boost gauge instead in most RBs it's just a gauge instead of being used in the ECU. Even in the turbo NEOs the failure mode is not as bad as it would otherwise be, the ECU uses MAFs primarily and the MAP sensor is mostly for transient handling and overboost protection.
    • Yes you are right. Even conservatively one for 10 years, it would last 1000 years. The Alibaba suplier offer a sample for US$100.
