If it helps any-

I can drastically tell the difference between my RC (LSD) and '90's (non-LSD) All-Trac's that I own.

It's the reason I bought a 205 rear sub. w/ LSD for my (white) '90 All-Trac. Some time down the road, I'll buy another rear diff w/ LSD for the (black) '90.

If you are sporting the car - spirited driving - or track use. LSD is a huge advantage.

BTW: I just dug out my old window sticker. My car sold for 27,018.00 back in 1992. Almost as much as I paid for my Z just a couple of years ago. Base price was 22,048.

I think if they could have dumped some of the options and got the price 20k the DSM might not be as popular.

I think it will. I've always felt that it was missing something, even when I put on the whiteline works package.

I agree. The AT had many options that were only available on many of the luxury lines. Power lumbar seats, auto climate control, leather, sys 10, theft system. And also considering that 27k 15 years ago was probably closer to 35k by todays standards.

Actually:



What cost $27000 in 1992 would cost $38551.48 in 2006.
Also, if you were to buy exactly the same products in 2006 and 1992,
they would cost you $27000 and $18909.78 respectively.

Took the car for a little test drive. Still pulling timing up top. Runs decent though. Matter of time before I kill the last of the gremlins.

Josh FWIW vaccum at idle should be between 20-22 psi.

17 psi sounds like there is still a minor leak somewhere.

Had to drive the car ~40 miles to work today. Felt interesting on the highway.

I know my gearing is conciderably higher, but what do you guys rev for crusing at 70mph?

Mine sits at 2,800 rpm.

Just got a set of Evo 8 brembo calipers.

I am going to use the fronts and most likely the st205 rears.
I might put the rear brembos up for sale, unless I try and fit them on the rear as well, thenthe 205 rears will go for sale.
I will most likely use the 205 ones so I do not have to make brackets. If I do use the evo rears I will still use the rear discs from the st205.

I will most likely use sti rotors and a spacer.
Plus my oem setup will most likely go for sale to help cover the cost.

Got my new catch can in today. It helped out a lot. Vac is now 19 at idle. Idle is better and does not dip as much. So there is still a small vac leak at large.

THe car sounds louder and more aggressive now too. It also pulls harder. Can't wait to sort out all these vac issues. I think I am almost there.

Interesting. So, my ratios knock it down only a couple hundred rpm.
