Was looking around for a torrent and found this on youtube. Funimation also has Second Stage on their channel, but nothing later than that. Here's the playlist for First Stage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVG7zusJ1t8&list=ELLBPz0QR3ebI

Third, Fifth and Final Stages are readily available on nyaa, but I can't find Fourth Stage anywhere. If anyone has it or knows where to find it, please post it.

I also came across an "Initial D Legend" trilogy, never heard of it but it looks like it was released last year? Also available on nyaa.

Also, here is the complete manga that an anon posted a while ago: https://mega.nz/#F!cQUFHJJa!MFUJaCq-RJ1ry1EAUGOU5w

Pic unrelated, just a google image of essentially the same thing.

I bought a trans am for 2300, it's pretty beat up but it drives so i didn't mind the small repairs for the price.

Of course, mechanics couldn't come and check it mobile so i just took my chances. Turns out they replaced the dash with a 20v fuse when it needs a 10v for the gauges or something and that causes explosions, the wiring looks like a spider's nest, the injectors have holes leaking everything and the ECC is unreadable because it's too old for my mechanic's machines.

Now, this is one of my favorite cars so I really have no problem spending the money within reason to fix it and make it great again, but I don't know where to start.

I need advice such as;

Is a classic car workshop worth it, or should I just call a buddy who says he knows them well enough?

Is there a place to get copies of keys cheap for general motors cars?

Where do I buy good replacement parts for the trans am?

If the louvers are cracked (The plastic is snapped but the metal itself is still together) should I just glue it and get new hinges or replace the whole thing and if so, where do I get them?

Where can I get white-text tires to keep the classic look in the future?

Where can I get replacement decals?

Is there a way to know what radios I can put in it? Still has the original sound and stuff.

Upgrades, ways to make it faster or more powerful, any advice at all really. It's my first car, I want to get into vehicles but my dad is RIP and I know nobody.

Thanks so much if you guys can help, happy thanksgiving!

If your car is the same as in >>11045, I don't see any louvers. Don't put any louvers on. You have relatively mediocre rear visibility as is in one of these cars. Use stock headlights and use your brights when you have to, if you've got electrical problems your headlights may be dimming or (i don't know if yours has one, but it also may have a head light dimming switch/slide)

When talking about your air conditioning problem, what i meant was "Is it just the fans that stay on or do both the compressor and fans run after turning the car off"

00a10c No.12922


>Don't put any louvers on it

The louvers are stock, they came off because they are broken. It came with louvers. The question is do I fix them or get new ones? Do I need to buy stock louvers to be completely stock or can I just buy what I like and possibly fix the old ones later if I want to go super classic, sinc ei keep all the original parts.

>relatively mediocre rear visibility

Thanks for the heads up, if I do get louvers I'll make sure to check my mirror and see the difference.

>Use stock headlights

I'd really like something that has further reach because I can't see well at night and I love driving. Sadly, dimmer/hi-lo switch is busted so I can't do anything to it, and the brights are only for the underlights.


I think only the compressor for the air conditioning keeps running, you can feel it whooshing through the vents. The main fan by the engine is NOT on though, if you mean that. Excuse me if I misunderstand again.

ae7755 No.12923


No sense in fixing old plastic parts, it just doesn't work most of the time. Fix your switches and then makes a choice, you may be suffering in that department due to broken items. Also, consider replacing your headlights with a new or higher performance bulb before you think about going into the unforgivable territory of HIDs.

As for your air conditioning, just disconnected it until you can go through the process of diagnosing it or getting someone else to diagnose it.

I need opinions first on those SFX louvers, nobody's really said anything about their thought.

I wish my 'bird was easy to work on; anything that isn't a fluid or right on top is basically a major repair taking me hours to do anything.

You can get something that will probably run for 30k-50k miles without major failures. The rest of the package probably won't be "decent" by most people's standards, but it will get you from A to B. Find 90s Civic or Corolla that's reasonably clean but with fairly high mileage (~200k). I've seen quite a few listings that look okay and have had some recent service, but have high miles so are going for less.

Supposedly the whiteblocks are excellent if you live in a country with decent infrastructure and can drive it at very high RPMs all the time.

It'd be hard to use one as intended in America right now.


Some people really like the B280 version of the PRV. I still wouldn't want to have to maintain one.


See picture. That's the best version. Both the I4 and V6 are great, but the V6 has a pretty horribly involved cambelt replacement procedure. Fortunately only every 100k miles.

Well, you know how a lot of people say you can't weight reduce a car enough to hurt the engine? Stops being true if you disable all nonessential accessories and remove everything you don't immediately need for driving. Cast iron pistons on a 96mm stroke eventually give out if you push them as hard as a 300+hp engine. Sucks, but I guess I learned my lesson. And got a lot more life out of it than my dumb ass deserved still.

I'll be the first to unhesitatingly state that the USDM has always been pozzed with automatic transmissions, shitty electronics, and sometimes less shitty mechanics. GM hasn't put out anything decent since the 60s, Ford USA can't design anything reliable with fewer than 8 cylinders in less than 20 years, and Chrysler's only saving grace was AMC. That's what happens when your mainstream culture is based on consumerism and planned obsolescence (which GM invented, by the way).

It all worked. Comp 150 with the worst one 7 away. Temperature holds steady, no leaks. Couple little vacuum leaks, but those should be easy to track down. Drove around 100 miles and no incidents.

Track down a diagram of the system. Who manufactured your car? At least with Nissans and Volvos, you get amazingly good diagrams on dealership parts store websites. If you can find a good diagram, most of the rest of the battle is finding bolt torques.

Nice. What model is it?


A friend of mine, who has the same generation car as I, found the Saab Workshop Information System (WIS; the factory service manual) on some obscure torrent site and shared it with me. That's what I used to replace the clutch cable. It doesn't seem to have instructions on how to remove just the clutch lever - only removing the entire clutch. There is also no diagnostic guide for it and like I said web searches yielded nothing. My best bet is that the release bearing is jammed in the spring or something, but it seems like fixing that would require dropping the transmission so that can't be it if the repair is cheap. I don't have the knowledge or tools to drop the transmission to remove the clutch and inspect it, so all I can do is take it to the shop.

Since I was a kid, I always wanted to drive a big, snarly muscle car with those coke bottle lines. As I got into my teens I started seeing much less of them on the roads (as tends to happen to 30+ year old cars in New England) and the few I did see were locked in garages or covered with tarps except for the odd car show or sunny spring day. I understand the monetary and collector value, but It's always seemed like a waste to keep such awesome machines as little more than eye candy for the garage or driveway.

I've always maintained that I would get some such car and make it my daily driver ever since I got my license. After 10 years of real life though, I'm starting to doubt it. Initial cost, the gas, the cost of upkeep and repairs,Is it childish to think I could make one of these glorious dinosaurs a daily driver that would last me into my golden years? I doesn't need to be pure or right year or a hallowed model like a Charger or Mustang, It could be a Nova or a Dart or even a Maverick. Its not about speed or authentic restoration or even turning heads for me. Its just about the grins I get from sitting in a cool car that growls and shakes and feels like a "real" car.

Are there any fellow east coasters who have realized this dream? Is it possible? financial suicide? Garage it, undercoating, frequent carwashes? Or has anyone else come to the same conclusions about their earlier automotive inclinations?

You're pretty much at the crux of rust territory. Classics tend to fare better south of the Mason-Dixon, where they're less likely to rot on the flatgrass. Gas is cheaper, too.

fc1072 No.12906

I'm in a horrible rust zone too. If you do manage to get a really cool old car, immediately scrape off all the rust and use epoxy paint on everything. Even if you have to destroy the exterior paint job and do a new one, get at least some epoxy paint on any area that had rust. That stuff is great. Either POR15 or the VHT epoxy spraypaint.

If you have the inclination, do it. Even if it is a fight. It's worth it for the feel of driving something you put together.

I don't know where you live, but in the US, anything under 700cc is acceptable.

My first bike was a 1979 Yamaha XS650 that was a HUUUGE piece of shit. I learned a lot from that bike. Like how to set valves, clean engine sludge, troubleshoot wiring harnesses, troubleshoot charging systems, fix ancient disintegrating fuse blocks, steering head bearings….

the list goes on forever.

Pre1980's bikes are usually points-based ignition and simple carburetors.

late 80's-90's bikes typically are hard to find parts for anymore.

Stick to something with a cult following and you'll be fine. Such as the CX500/xs650/cb750.

If you're looking for something smaller for whatever reason, get a honda rebel 250 and modify it to be less dike-bike, or find a wrecked ninja 250 at auction for pennies and throw $20 on it.

No-wheels fag here, I've got a long time rider and mechanic friend hyping me up to buy a| bike and go traveling and Korean/Chinese bikes that use that system are my first -and probably only- choice; besides the Suzuki DR650.

He tells me how in his travels to bike events he has seen many a great ride stranded while cheap air-cooled knockoffs are easily repairable almost anywhere. It's the only choice because this is a socialist shithole where finding parts is an exercise in frustration and having your ride be too good or too shabby can get you killed for it.

Doing my plugs and wires soon. I've got pre-gapped Bosch Iridium spark plugs, and the gap on the box is the correct gap for my engine. I'd like to just put them in as-is without messing with the gap, since the electrode is so easy to damage, and because I'm pretty sure I've screwed up a couple iridium plugs before by gapping them. The thing is, 90% of "pre-gapped" plugs I've checked in the past were set at the wrong gap (and were not even consistent in how far off they were).

So which is riskier? Messing with the gap to make sure it's right, or leaving them alone and potentially using the wrong gap?

As in, on the fuel tank? You never want to do that.

> it's not made of metal parts that easily crumple it can take a bit more of a beating than old cars

Maybe, but things that weren't designed to support the weight of the car in 1990 probably still aren't. There's no reason for them to be.

Here's a video that might help you in the future.

Well I gotta take my car to my local mechanic he's gonna change my tires and do an alignment I would do it but I don't have the tools and it's dirt cheap. I'll tell him to inspect it and see if there's any damage done. I drove it for 3 hours today and I didn't notice anything, it still drives really nice I'm just paranoid is all. It just so happened I didn't stop my dad from jacking up the car next time I know not to ask him for anything, he means well but he did it wrong. Thanks for the vid.

Road legal car does not mean you can drive it on a road.
