  1. Yup, I just wanted to make sure the OP knew this. If you do jackshaft openers, make sure you run new electrical up to them too otherwise in an old garage, you won't have an outlet near them.
  2. Two important things to note(if you haven't in an earlier post) is that your garage door tracks are mounted VERY close to your ceiling and you have shaft mounted door openers. This is not normal for a residential build, especially older homes. I converted my old garage door tracks with a "high track" conversion. You can google that and you can find people to make them for you and I bought shaft mounted openers off amazon that work great.
  3. We added cars since then.. 2 x 991 gt3's, 991 GT3 RS, 991 turbo S, Cayenne GTS, Macan GTS, Nissan GTR, 68 Camaro SS and a VW GTI. Still yet to put a full size truck on it. We have a GMC 2500 but, it is so lifted, we don't need a lift If you want to put wider cars on it, make the 2002 about the narrowest car you put on it. So, the arms are close to full extension. It makes it a little more shaky but, it doesn't go anywhere.
  4. Storage of the maxjax is not bad at all. Unbolt it and quick disconnect hoses let you wheel it out of the way. As with any post lift, when setup, it does take up room.
  5. We have one and it is really awesome. We had 2002's, m3's, 911's, Cayenne's, X5's, etc on it. It does everything we ever wanted. We did install a longer, heavier gauge plug in cord for it. The only problem we ever had was the contactor for the up/down switch failed after 5 years. I blame it on the user using the stock wiring and an extension cord.
  6. What exactly was done? Just a rebuild or porting, bigger valves, etc???
  7. I don't see any turbo plumbing in that engine bay? Looks like a N/A to me?
  8. Box flares with 15x10's with zero offset..

    Nice fuel cell! Do they have a part number for that or was it custom?
  10. I think the fuel system is probably fine. My guess is bad coil packs and when they go bad, they sometimes take out the DME but, if you are saying each coil is firing and the right cylinder/plug has a spark, then it is a timing thing. Meaning wires are crossed or triggering isn't happening at the right time.
  11. Don't over think it. This is a very simple motor. You just want someone who really takes their time and measures everything up to make sure it all fits. Tolerances are everything! The short block is just like any other motor. Porting heads is where experience really shows.
  12. No offense but, what did you do before tools and measurement devices?
  13. I have made many custom cranks for high HP turbo cars. We made a S14 crank for a 800hp turbo build but, scrapped it for a Honda K24 swap instead and sold the S14 motor off. The best part of a custom crank is that you can pic and choose what bearings and rods you want to run. You can pick up some good "free" HP by taking advantage of the newer race bearings on the market. If you use a good crank manufacture, you can take advantage of newer oiling strategies, reduced weight and modern aerodynamic profiles.
  14. collectively at work, there must be 6 different chassis/motor combo's and all of them sit on the lift every few months. Thank God our boss is a car guy and allowed the lift otherwise, everyone would be poor. The turbo cars are fun to mod but, they break too easy and have no room for more rubber out back. Everyone here is slowly selling their cars and not going back to BMW. The VW/Audi group is too strong. We have some Audi "S" cars here that are bullet proof beasts!! A VW GTI and a bunch of 911 turbo's that are insanely good cars and they never break.
