Denver Area DSM Forum - Denver, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, and surrounding front range area.
I feel your pain. I know some meets go on up by Briargate mall once in a while, but I've been out of the scene since my last DSM was taken from me and now can't get my current one to run, so I'm not sure when meets go on and such.
What swap are you doing to yours? The tard I bought mine from (or even the owner prior to him) did a 6-bolt swap and I wasn't told about it when I bought it. So it wouldn't start under it's own power unless it was a push start. So I ended up fixing that problem and got to drive it for a whole 88.2 miles and then started having power issues. So I replaced a few more things and then it wouldn't start again. Then I found out it was a 6-bolt engine with a hacked '90 CAS and mutilated wire harness. Then I replaced the harness and got a new CAS and redid wiring for it and still nothing. So now I got it up on craig's list so if it sells, great, I'll buy one that runs, or if it doesn't sell, I'm still always trying to get it running. Gotta love DSMs, wouldn't be a DSM if it were easy to work on.
I've been trying to meet more DSM people too, none of my tuner friends have respect for DSMs. Don't even know others who have them.
Sweet, red s10 right? I want to drive mine and pisses me off every time I see one on the road knowing I can't drive mine.
Just did a compression test on my car and it's severely low so this weekend I'm checking my piston rings and valves. Finally feel like I know the problem.
Awesome. I might actually be pulling the engine and tranx out this weekend if my seal test shows the my piston rings are bad. If so, I'm gonna start preping for a stroker kit and block boring. Help is more than welcomed. (And yeah that was the truck). The harness went in pretty quick too btw. Definately a much cleaner look than the original.
Did you have to remove the piping that goes into the throttle body to get at it?
and yes i do believe i had the piping off
thats good to hear that it worked out for you atleast someone got some use out of it. if you need some help just let me know. you should still have my number if not just pm me when you figure out what your gonna be doing
Project - nice setup.. did you do the battery relocation yourself?
I'm not sure what time people go to the meet in the springs off academy because I haven't been in awhile but I used to go at 10pm and stay until like 1am. The Denver meet is usually 9pm-12am-ish depending on when everyone leaves to go cruise then they usually go back to that spot.
They battery relocation I did back in 2007 how ever im looking to pick up a new battery box since hey won't let me run this plastic one at Bandimere.
