Alright, for the sake of conversation...I have a '96 200SX SE-R. I just finished putting on the Wolf/Hotshot headers and it was a pain in the a$$. First off, I placed an order with Hotshot nearly 4 months ago, and they didn't feel the need to make them. I pulled the order and guess what shows up from Jim Wolf two days ago at my tuner's garage? A nice shiny pair of headers made by Hotshot for Wolf. Now I couldn't just let them sit there, right? However, having read that some people had had problems with these fitting correctly, I set aside today solely for this install. Good thing, there were no gaskets, bolts and no plug for the second hole near the O2 sensor (pre-95 cars have another sensor there). So here I sit dear friends, my busted ass car in my driveway with a hole in it's primaries, whining on a Saturday night instead of racing. ARRGGHHH!
Anyway, yeah, I've got a SX SE-R too! Talk to you again soon.
Well right now, the wheel rubs the fender well. Stock suspension and "rollers" but I had an incident. I slid into a curb, hit a gravel patch. Anyway, the left side wheel is pushed back. Is that part of the frame? What all is possibly damage? what kind of cost am I gonna look at?
Second ordeal. I have this clicker noise after the engine revs down. Like I wind it up, and then it clicks once on the way down. comments?
Third Ordeal. I know I have EGR problems, but when I worked on it, I had the trunk open so I could hear my speakers better and left it open during the night and drained the battery, which erased the error code, so I can't take that to the Stealership till the light comes on.
I think that's about it.
Well you would really have to look at the A-arm to see if its bent. If its not it might be where it gets bolted on to. I'm almost sure you can replace that part with out cutting or anything. If its not that it could be the body/frame. The only way to tell is to look at it.
The ticking could be either an exhaust leak,rocker arm,belts etc. dose it do the same while the car isn't in gear? Try poping the hood and reving it by pulling the throttle cable. Use a stethascope (sp?) to narrow down where the noise is comming from. If it dosen't happen while the car is out of gear and not moving it could be a tranny/clutch related problem.
Trouble shoot it and post what you find. It makes it easyer for you and other to figure out the problem.
