More than that, couple teeth. Compression check would answer a lot of questions.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

So, if your engine died after hitting redline...what would you think the problem is? It cranks, fuel pump runs, it will catch for a second and rev up to maybe 500 rpm but immediately die. It sounds like a huge exhaust leak right at the back of the header but that shouldn't keep the car from running should it?

So true. You're the Renaissance man of the PDX Lounge. Only the finest brand name parts for your vehicle. Speaking of which I think you need Swift springs this year and that COT wing should be dumped for a Voltex.

I actually don't run collars but have thought of it many times.

All I need is 4 t bolt clamps and straight couplers for 2.5 inch pipe. If you had any that would be awesome. Vibrant clamps are like 8$ a piece.

I found some at Baxter auto but now am having a hard time finding T-bolt clamps. Anybody know of any local stores that would carry them?

Depending on what you need, the spectre crap ones at autozone can work.

aidandj Suggestions on 2.5 inch silicon couplers locally? Everyone wants to order some.

Edit: found some at Baxters for future reference. They sell vibrant parts.

I've read a bit that 2" are the better choice because of the way they fit in your hips better. I don't have any personal experience...

The OMP are 3" on the chest but 2" over the shoulder. I assume to work with a hans. You can kinda see it below...



If I keep buying all these damn track like parts I may have to actually hit a track someday.....

Re: Official PDX Lounge

My bracket and harness have already been purchased...

Set back model.



And I answered my own question about whether I have the quick release or the bolts... But it also seems I have 3" lap belts. Sad.

1. For the lap belts, are you just using the stock mounting points? It's going in my NA6 so the holes are there.
2. I have a BSP roll bar with welded in harness bar (came with the car). It seems a bit narrow and that the one harness may actually angle a bit. Is that much of a concern? I can take pics when we get closer.
Sorry. Looks like Richard gave you some info.

I'm using Schroth bits now and his photos look identical to my setup. Sounds like your harness bar is similar to the Hard Dog weld in bar. Not ideal.

I run Boss Frog so it's a non issue but yeah having the belts angled is not the greatest. Check out Schroth's harness mounting pdf's for any other concerns.

Lastly, dont cheap out on your belt purchase!

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Thanks guys! I was already planning on using the threaded backing plates that Schroth (or someone similar makes). No Dollar Store hardware. I'll buy a cheap seat but not cheap restraints, lol. I also just ordered frame rails. I guess I'll need to consider how I overlap things there...

I don't recall if my lap belts have the bolt in hardware or the clips. I'll have to see if I need to consider those pieces. and I've watched that harness wrapping video like 8 times. I'll still screw it up...

Do you consider the collars on the bar necessary? They seem wise to hold the seat in place but not sure if I need them...

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Harness installation pics and stuff. This is schroth hardware. Don't use random hardware store hardware for harness mounting - grade 8 please. Apologies if you already know that. You can never tell. Door lap belt uses oem bolt along with the stock belt.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Yes you use stock mounting points for the lap belts. Make sure they don't bond and can still pivot. Wrap the harness bar, and use eye bolts and ~2-3" washers from underneath for the 5/6th points.

What are the other 3? My hatch and then two others? lol

Probably Ron's v8 s14 that you may have seen out at ORP. Trying to think of the others...

Alex's 240 is one of perhaps 4 240sx I've seen in person that I genuinely like. Clean simple functional modifications
12-19-2014 02:13 AM
aidandj Makes sense. Great price but more than I have to spend right now. It would have to be like 500 for me to buy one right now.
