Background
Bought it burned out and ready for a scrap yard as the next step. Replaced wiring harness, sensors and all intake plumbing. Its been wrecked at least once I know of and lost compression twice. :) gotta love DSM's

Goals are just to be a nice drivers car that's decently quick. Not looking to set records just want longer engine life and some passing power.

OLD: The turbo has .45AR marked on it, t too small.
NEW: Evo 3 16g +special compressor wheel

Rules I fallow religiously:
Winter - shut off fuel pump, crank car twice (3 sec shot) then turn on fuel pump
Never get into heavy boost until operating temp
Always heavy oil and a mitsubishi oil filter
Always no clutch to start

Timeslip Details
I was running insanely hot and found out that I had loose intake to block and exhaust to block #thankslocalDSMshop. Also full weight plus some. I was about 100lbs over full weight + self with stuff in the hatch. I would estimate 3900# approximate. Heavy loaded spare and all.
