Ok Mike, no need to give out your last name. We don't want to ruin your cover
Well it's been a very long time since I 've seen an XT6 auto-x. Probably 5yrs or more so I have no clue who you are.
Not sure that you can tell from the pics of my car, but those magnetic signs on the doors are M-Club Class Champion signs awarded by the club. I was the '02-'05 class E champion (the '02 one got stolen at an event) with the M-Club, 4yrs in a row. I attended most of their events religiously from late '99 on, except for last year and this year I only went a couple of times.
I also auto-xed with NASA a couple of times in '03 & '04. Then NASA merged with the M-Club or did away with their Auto-x events in '05 and concentrated more on track events I believe. I used to auto-x with Matt Dudek before that when he had his Type-R. Perhaps you know him. He was one of NASA's officers when their auto-x series was created. He then took on road racing with his newly acquired Type-R hybrid Civic after he sold his Yellow ITR. He also bought my '97 Civic DX HB with plans to do a Type-R motor swap but he opted for a lighter '92 or '93 Civic HB.
You may know Zephyr Belski that road races an Impreza RS with a WRX motor. Zephyr and I went head to head in DSP class (SCCA) for a couple of years with the NY Region SCCA when he had the stock 2.5 motor in his RS. That was back in '01 and 02 I believe. He never managed to beat me once so he then did a WRX motor swap and got bumped up to SM where he still wasn't competitive against the Civic hybrids with Type-R motors. He then pretty much gave up auto-x all together I believe because I haven't seen him in a couple of years, and pursued road racing more. I heard he 's doing very well with NASA and SCCA and has won 1 or 2 class championships. Know any of these people I mentioned?
BTW, whatever happened to Mr.Shiftright (Shifty I used to call him)? He was the host here for many years.
#1729 of 1734 SuperCharged Acura Integra GSR 1996
Dec 19, 2007 (5:55 pm)
Ok i have a integra and i bought it with a JR supercharger already on it. When i test drove it, the car did amazing. But after like 2 months the bottom alternator bolt came out and now none of the holes line up right. I called Revline (the place that put in the supercharger), and they said that it never fit to begin with and the guy just said to make it work. Well now i cant get it to work and have my alternator line up right with all the other pulleys. Im guessing it may be the wrong bracket but they said it was the one that came with the integra supercahrger. So i was wondering if it could be the wrong alternator or my bracket is bent. But also there is so much torque and power going to my alternator it is sheering off bolt i shove through the holes to make the alternator stay so i can at least drive it around town without the belt falling off. Any one have any idea what the problem could be? thanks a lot for the help.

ever sense i bought this car its been hell...but after dropping the jdm motor in it and stage one clutch with a light weight flywheel and other mods on an ls ive been wondering what i should spend my next check on...so far mustang gts and camaros are no match. i hate straight line racing. so im looking for a wider range of power but looking to keep the top end...so far lately ive been thinking about throwing a gsr head on an ls to get the vtech and turning the v tech down to about 4500, and god forbid i still have a jdm front end waiting for a carbon fiber hood to go on alll at once...any advice from anyone would help...

my best guess would be to buy a high grade smaller bolt that would fit or the right way would be to take it of so you can get the braket out and see if its bent and maybe drill a bigger hole in it...ive dealt with similar problems like this on my race integra...

I just bought a 96 GSR with 167k on the clock. It has Greddy Headers, a full Magnaflow exhaust, AEM Cold air intake, new Spark plug wires and plugs.... any estimates on what sort of power gains this would have given the car? It's pretty quick.

OK HERE GOES, WE HAVE A 1991 INTEGRA LS AND RECENTLY WE PURCHASED A 1997 GSR FRONT STUB/ENGINE SETUP STRAIGHT FROM JAPAN TO USE FOR A SWAP. THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS THE UNIT FROM JAPAN WAS A RIGHT SIDE STEERING COLUMN CAR. LOOKING FOR ANY KIND OF INFO TO HELP EASE THE PAIN OF TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THIS WIRING NIGHTMARE. WE HAVE THE OBVIOUS PROBLEM OF MAKING A 97 HARNESS WORK IN A 91 BUT NOW ALSO THE FACT THAT THE WIRING IS ALL BACKWARDS. ANY HELP WE CAN GET WOULD BE MUCH APRECIATED. THANKS ALL.
