  1. HX35

    Yea, been outta stock for awhile.
  2. HX35

    Working on my HX35 w/ BEP housing but the motor mount is in the way of drain. Are people cutting the motor mount, clocking the turbo a little to make room? I can’t seem to find much info on it. .
  3. 1G Transmission Motor Mount Stripped

    What's up all, getting my engine put back in last on my M/T 6 bolt, and I stripped one of the tranny motor mount bolts. The bolt that attaches the mount to the transmission. What's the best way to fix this? Helicoil?Also, the bolt I have for it look really small, does anyone know a part...
  4. Resolved 1G Part Identification

    Yea, I'd say I'm safe to leave this part off lol
  5. Resolved 1G Part Identification

    Damn man! I appreciate that
  6. Resolved 1G Part Identification

    No, all that's been replaced and accounted for. This would be off the front of the motor (timing side) based on the parts pile I found it in.
  7. Resolved 1G Part Identification

    Interesting, I can't think of anything that I've worked on that would have it. If no one has ever seen it then it must have just gotten mixed up in my parts.
  8. Resolved 1G Part Identification

    What's up all. I just got my motor back from being at the machine shop for several months and am reassembling it all. I came across this part and can't find in my pictures where I took it off from. Any pointers would be appreciated. from a 92 6 bolt.

    ThYea I’m done with balances shafts after this whole ordeal.

    I have been looking for something like this. Thank man!
  11. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    What's up guys, I haven't forgotten about the thread just been waiting since September to get my motor back. Machine shop was backed up like crazy. Figured I would do a pic dump of what I've been working on.1.) Recoated the fender wells and replaced everything.Before:After:Started...
  12. 1G Balance shaft pulley after delete

    Just got my motor back from my engine builder. He went ahead and put in a BSE but left the pulley on. Should it stay on or should I get a shorter bolt?See pic
  13. Cam Selection

    You think the springs can handle an S2?
  14. Cam Selection

    What’s up guys. I’m about to get my built 6 bolt back from my builder and just picked up a fresh head. I want some gsc s2 cams to go with my hx 35 but don’t know if the are too aggressive for my springs. Below is specs on head.STD GSC valves GSC race guides GSC Viton seals BC springs and...
  15. ECMlink 90-91 vs. 92-94 DSM Link

    Thanks all. Near as I can tell all I have to do to use the 90 in my 92 is swap wires. It looks like if you’re putting a 91+ in a 90 then u have to do more to deal with the tach issue.
  16. ECMlink 90-91 vs. 92-94 DSM Link

    This is what I got. Near as I can read, the 3 verticals boards in center mean it’s a 90 and to put in my 92 Id need to swap PINs. Can anyone confirm?
  17. ECMlink 90-91 vs. 92-94 DSM Link

    I bought an ECU with linkv3 already but is there a way to tell if it’s a 90-91 version or 92+?
  18. 1G Front Strut Spring Isolator

    Replacing struts in my 1g awd, is there a rubber isolator/seat between the bottom of the spring between it and strut? I threw my old strut away and completely forgot to look.

    Yea man, I'm basically in the exact same spot you are with the same car so we have probably been down the same paths lol
  20. Street Build 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    When I was looking into bearings I found tons of examples of stock rebuilds running the ACL race and seeing builds with them from 2016 and before and still running fine. I thought since it's the most popular on extremepsi and stmtuned coupled with the fact I couldn't find a lot of bearing...
  21. Street Build 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    Did you keep stockers? Swing by hw store and get a couple longer. If you have a leveler just use the PS bracket holes and then bolt leveler to that and exhaust.
  22. Street Build 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    Put lift brackets back on. One by PS pump and one by TB. I had my manifold off too when I pulled mine and just used an exhaust stud. Kinda sketchy but I tightened as much as I could and it was fine. I pulled tranny and engine together. I got tons of pics so let me know if you got any questions.
  23. Street Build 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    Looks awesome man! I've got my motor off to the machine shop, went with the same pistons and rods you did, that's what my builder recommended and boy are they pretty! I know what you mean about them being inspiring.Have you done anything with your suspension? I wanted to pull my subframe to...
  24. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    Got some engine parts in today! Went with stock bore 9:1 compression. My engine builder said the balance shaft bearings gave out and caused the timing to jump. The bad BS bearings also ate up my rod and main bearings once metal was in the oil. I was pro keeping BS before I found this out, so...
  25. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    You might get lucky! Post up pics when you get it.
  26. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    Tank was in great shape believe it or not. I drained it and it wasn't rusted. The two front fenders are bent where the doors are out of alignment and bent them, not sure if they can be fixed and painted or if i'll need to track down a pair in good shape. Interior is pretty much perfect, I'll...
  27. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    What's up all, it seems the cool thing to do now is to bring these old DSMs back from the dead. I've always been a Mustang guy but loved DSMs ever since I first rode in one before I got my license.I should have started this sooner, but I bought the car in November 2020 and have been slowly...

  31. Timing Question

    Any concern to the marks on the piston?
  32. Timing Question

    Got the head off and found this.
  33. Timing Question

    Yea, I had to replace fuel lines and several other things just to get it to the point of being able to run. Once I started it it ran terrible and sounded like it had rod knock and that's when I decided it was time to go through the motor and just see what condition it's in. I have fresh head...
  34. Timing Question

    I'm in the process of restoring my first DSM. Car had low compression (around 110) so I figured I might as well rebuild the engine. So I got it pulled and started tearing it down and noticed what looks to me like my timing is way off. Spun the engine 6 times and got the cam gears lined up...
  35. Reply to question by 'bgold87' on the classified ad 'Help... I need 1g awd rear calipers'

    RTM racing had them in stock not long ago. NAPA had a right rear and RTM had a left rear or get both from RTM but more $$$
  36. 1G 1g clutch issue

  37. 1G 1g FMIC Suggestions

    Whats up all. Wanting to get a front mount, looks like ETS about the best u can find now days. What's everyone doing for piping? I can't find a short route pipe kit anywhere.I'm almost tempted to get a punishment or cx racing just for thr piping.
  38. 1G 1g clutch issue

    Got a rebuild kit with brass bushing and it works great! Thanks for all the info guys.
  39. 1G 1g clutch issue

    Well, there's no nut on there lol I don't see a stud like the nut was removed, wondering if someone snapped it off. Gotta love restores!
  40. 1G 1g clutch issue

    Honestly I haven't checked that yet. Just ordered the rebuild stuff from RTM but I'll take a look afterwhile. Appreciate all the help!
  41. 1G 1g clutch issue

    That was my thoughts, its just dead pedal for several inches so hard to blame the hyd. Now it is an aftermarket master and slave. Thanks for the quick reply.
  42. 1G 1g clutch issue

    Restoring a 92 Talon. When I got it, it didn't have a slave. So put a new master, slave, and stainless line on. I've bled the shit out of it and have a lot of dead clutch pedal. Is this a bad pedal assembly? Is it worth pulling tranny to see if it's a clutch issue?The pedal doesn't even...
  43. Exhaust Manifold

    What's up guys, needed to replace my turbo cooling line and when I took the manifold off (turbo on) most of the studs came out with it so removal was cake.Put a new stud kit on and trying to re-install that manifold with studs on this time and have tried everything and I can get the left side...
  44. 1G 1g Megan Racing downpipe and catback?

    Just ordered a 3" Megan Racing downpipe and Megan Racing catback. Is the dp cat eliminating or will I need a testpipe to get rid of cat?
  45. 92 6 or 7 bolt configuration

    Looks like a 6 bolt going off the faq oil pan guide. Top is flat where it meets block and if running my hand down the front under the crank it protrudes out a bit.So after some reading it appears I have a 1g 7 bolt head on a 6bolt block. Now, who knows if the studs were drilled out like they...
  46. 92 6 or 7 bolt configuration

    Whats up all. I needed some new exhaust manifold studs for my 92 I'm restoring and while looking I noticed I need the studs for a 7 bolt (two large studs on end, the rest smaller)So I'm curious did Eagle put 7 bolts heads on a 6 bolt? Did someone put a 7 bolt head on? (I doubt this as car...
  47. Dropped something into Turbo coolant line

    Alright guys, dumbass mistake. Replacing hose from thermostat to turbo coolant line and when I went to put a plug on the hardline to keep coolant from leaking out, the plug went in the hardline. Can this hardline be removed without taking off the turbo and manifold?
  48. 1G Fuel Rail Line (Throttle Body Stay in the way)

    Thanks Paul! BTW that new return kit and sending unit kit went on great!-Brandon
  49. 1G Fuel Rail Line (Throttle Body Stay in the way)

    Installing the 818 tank to rail and there's no way to get around this bracket with the line and the fittings they sent. Can I get rid of it ans shorten the throttle body bolts? I can't find any pics with the kit and an engine that has it.
