    Unfortunately on 4/2/2011 I lost my beloved Tiburon:(. I think its time to move on though. I've been doing my research on the DSM's and I think its time to act and buy one. This weekend I plan on looking at a 1995 GSX. I'm not too familiar with Mitsu's but I know about the infamous crank walk. From my research this only happens to the 7 bolts? Well this is a 6 bolt with the head rebuilt or swapped I need to ask because i don't remember. Its got only 80k on the engine, anyhow what are some major signs and or tips I should do or look for while test driving it? Ive actually owned only 1 manual and that was my Tiburon so how can I tell if the tranny and/or clutch is going out? Also the boost gauges work properly but the temp one doesn't for some reason. Is this a big issue or just a malfunction in the gauge itself? Please help and leave me some advice to look for while I look over this DSM. Thanks, and hopefully I'll end up the proud owner of one of these bad boysLOL

    Hello and welcome to the forum i live up in ft dodge and will be in des moines this weekend with my gsx. Crank walk is sort of over rated any car can crank walk just dsm's get a bad name. 7 bolts are more prone to it but i have never seen one with a case of it yet. As to how to check for it search for signs of crank walk there is threads to help you and if you want i could take a look at the car aswell. 563 568 7619 hit me up if ya want.

    I see, 2.5 hours away. If it was closer I'd offer to tag along some time.
