Re: Power Requirement for SL radio

It only has about 10w max output so...any speaker above glorified headphones would work fine. Pretty much anything you can find either in the free pile or the under $5 bin (assuming used items). I...

Re: Cleaning ignition coil pack?

2 coil packs sit on top of the ICM, the bolts pass through the coil to secure the assembly to the block. JY's often will charge you for 1 item if you leave the coil packs on the ICM...3 for the price...

Re: Cleaning ignition coil pack?

Depends on what your JY charges, the ones local to me I can get loaded ICMs for under $50 (ICM w/Coils).

ICM's are '91-'92, '93-'95, '96-'02*

*'96-'99 don't have the idiotic bolt down plug wire...

Re: Oil change - Added too much...drain some?

Drained 2qts out of one once to get it down to the full mark. Smoked like a diesel at city speeds, didn't notice it at highway. Bought the car cheap & at night, didn't check the dipstick until I got...

Re: Cleaning ignition coil pack?

In my experience coils are nearly bullet proof while ICM's are crap. Not that either are failure prone, but if you're having spark issues blame the ICM before the coil packs.

I ran coils from a...

Re: Power Requirement for SL radio

1amp should turn it on and work fine on "very low" volume, but for reasonable listening you should get a 5-8 amp power supply. Feel the brick after a minute or two, if it's warm or worse-HOT, it's...

Re: 97 sl1 ac problems

The A/C is controlled by the PCM, all the button does is beg the PCM to give you A/C. If the light doesn't come on, the PCM has decided (mainly on the high-side pressure switch reading) that you...

Re: Installing a Solar Battery Charger

If you want to use a smaller ring terminal on your add-on wires...use the connection at the fuse box rather than the battery. Pull the screw out, insert the 'new' wire then insert the battery cable...

Re: 2002 SL won't pass smog with OBDII fail

Clogged ports is pretty rare but also pretty much the only cause of P0401. It sounds like you have VERY clogged EGR ports, and while you did a good job of cleaning it out there's bound to be much...

Re: 96 sl2 1.9 DOHC 5spd rev limiter

If you've the stock PCM, the rev limiter is 6750rpm +/-50rpm (automatic's are closer to 7000).
Swapping to a MP2 will give you the same 1st gear but longer 2nd and 3rd gear...not sure how many...

Re: 2002 SL won't pass smog with OBDII fail

If the engine doesn't hit the neutral rev limiter (roughly 4000rpm) on it's own, without help from you with the gas pedal/throttle, with the EGR valve removed when you start it up the passageways are...

Re: Headlight bulb replacement?

According to the links I posted they're the same color temp as standard bulbs (3200k), not sure where you see they're yellow.

Standard bulb wattage:
9005 = 65w (high beam)
9006 = 55w (low beam)...

Re: Headlight bulb replacement?

I put off-road H3's in my Subaru, stock is 60w/55w and the weaker ones that just burned out were 100w/80w (the ones I have now are 130w/90w). Only time I had an issue was when the same cop was in the...

Re: 02 sc2 leather seats

I scrapped a '87ish Porshe 944 because it required seats (amazing sunroof seals...lol) and the yard price started at $400; ebay was nicer at $300 but they wanted a bit over $100 to ship it.
Wanted...

Re: PCV very nasty

lol

Aluminum valve covers are the best cheap upgrade you can do to an S-Series, unfortunately only '91-'98's can do the swap economically as '99-'02's require a head swap and all the fun that...

Re: Lose of power?

The power band dumps off around 6500rpm, any expectation of power after that is wishful thinking (without valve-train mods).

TeamSCR's page on "More Horsepower" has dyno charts:...

Re: Amazon link for brake line fittings for 99 SC1?

3x 12mm; 1x 14mm at the MC. Not sure on the line size...maybe 3/16". Also not sure on what size at the rubber flex hose.

Technically it's all bubble flares which requires a special $ flare kit but...

Or...aim your headlights yourself. Easy to do and far far cheaper. Especially since all the shops I know of would keep the car 1-2hrs, charge you that labor time and it'd come out untouched for that...

Re: Alternator help

'91-'97.5 use the good alternator, '97.5-'02 use the crap alternator. It's probably not actually 'crap' but it's smaller & more compact with a little tiny internal fan and (on paper at least) lower...

Re: 01 sc2 subframe bolt help

It's identical to the heavy duty strut->knuckle bolt, just shaped kinda stupid. No idea what that thread pitch is, but those bolts are easier to pull out to check.

Re: Engine removal with manual transmission from the top.

Manual comes out with the engine, otherwise the only thing holding it in the car is the chance it hasn't fallen out. Easier to split and put back together outside the car anyway.

Re: 2001 SL SOHC: Boost or DOHC swap and boost?

Not many people made performance S-Series parts when they were popular, now just about the only one's you'll get are what you can create in your garage.

The best SOHC engine I've heard about only...
