    Parts Wishlist:
    Mishimoto radiator? nah, decided not to go with one of these for now because after I got the cooling system sealed up properly, and thermostat working its doing just fine.

    Have -14b waiting to go on.
    Have -ECM Link -(needs installed)
    Have-AEM Afr failsafe gauge -(needs installed)
    DONE- Fix fuel line issue (has a kink in it)
    Need - Replace one rear wheel stud
    Done - Replace both front axels and carrier bearing
    Done - Resurface rotors and pads
    Done - fix transmission rattle
    Done - valve cover gasket and clean pcv
    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 drive-able car that's decently quick not looking to set records just want longer engine life and some pep in its step.

    The turbo has .45AR marked on it, yep its the stocker.

    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 20w50 and a mitsubishi oil filter
    Always no clutch to start
  • 1/4 Mile E/T:
    15.9
    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.
