Did you feel/look under the hoses that connect to the waterpump? I suppose after 2 years, your pump gasket dried out and/or a seal went as you said, but I'd want to really know that before pulling...

Get a pressure tester and put 15psi in the cooling system. It will then leak faster and you should have no problem tracing the leak to the source. It's probably just a loose hose clamp or corroded...

I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this, but was struggling to keep the hood up. My struts actually work fine normally, but I have covers on the car that are weighing down the hood (long story)...

Hmmm, weird. I'm not aware of any common point of failure for just those two gauges (other than the cluster's circuit board and connectors in general). If they don't come back to life after driving...

If it sat still for 6 years, my guess would be they're just stuck. (Congrats on getting back on the road!) Try going faster and boosting more, and tapping on the cluster (seriously). Both can get...

Glad the Zeitronix info helped. As far as I can tell, those user pages on RL are locked up and I can no longer post new info, which is too bad. The pins in the red 4-pin connector are blade style...

I have that exact roll bar but didn't know where it came from. Works great and installation was super easy. I did use slightly longer bolts to make the install easier with carpet, etc. and learned...

Yep, very much related. See post 4 in the thread linked below. If you can salvage the old 4 pin connector, you could graft it on the new harness. Otherwise I'd be tempted to use any old connector...

Might help to snap a picture of what you're looking at. Not sure what you mean by 'turbo pipe" and exactly which hose you are replacing... The diagram above appears to be for the non-turbo motor,...

In the US, the '89 came with air bags. Interesting to see your car without them. I know the original '88 Silber Rosa S brochure also shows the car without airbags, so it was apparently a...

Probably doesn't hurt, but have no fear. Yours will come off probably with the air gun or almost certainly with a long enough breaker pipe. I gave up on that one that bent the bar stock simply...

I have a 3/4" Ingersoll Rand 1450 ft lbs. impact gun that can get a lot of these bolts, but I had one that even this gun couldn't remove. I ended up selling the crank with the pulley still on it. ...

You can get the bolt off as long as the flywheel is locked, it doesn't need to be at TDC. But make sure you have a plan for turning the motor once that bolt is off, since it is the most common way of...

Just to be clear, the 450/475 run was with a cone filter on a MAF. The airbox filter opening has less area than a 50x60 opening for sure (it's close in area to the stock i/c pipes), and the air...

I made 450/475rwhp/t on a dynojet using a stock intake, stock intercooler, stock intercooler pipes, stock throttle body, and probably closer to 20psi. I used a MAF however. I'd think the opening to...

Always worth checking the date stamp on tires, even "brand new" tires. It's the last 4 digits of the tire serial number on the sidewall -- first two digits are the week of the year made, and the...

I'll get to work on the mood lighting. In the meantime, it did occur to me that the covers should have timing marks around the main pulley so you can check timing with a timing light. I marked mine...

It's mere 497 -- you forget me I think. If someone could model the covers in CAD, you could probably have a high-end SLA or SLS shop 3D print them in optically clear plastic/resin.
