    Traded my DSM for a Z car :(

    If my talon had more functionability i would have never gotten rid of it. But it came down to me not having the time and money the car still needed. A whole wire job was going to have to be done and with my experience thats a lot of time i dont have. So ya its not as fast but i love the look of...

    Traded my DSM for a Z car :(

    Unfortunatley after about 5 months with my first DSM and all the problems and money that went with my Toy as my wife would say..I had to trade it off for more luxuries and better reliability. I am glad to say she landed in good hands and I think she will be a killer at the tracks in upstate NY...

    What did you do to your DSM today?

    Got some plexi glass cut for my sunroof hole.. It cracked while drilling the wholes for the fittings and latch, so I took the quick fix with some duct tape and sealed it down for the on coming storm.. Hopeful to find some glass at the junk yard

    Parts for sale

    Well mine doesn't move on a track it just kinda cracks open. I guess it's the difference between a moonroof not a sunroof. I learn something new everyday. Thanks anyway

    car stalling when I decelerate?? help

    To start with your base idle check your TPS as well as BiSS and ISC. I had a bad idle and horrible cold start issues when I first got my talon, tweaked all them did a BLT and went to a 2g mas and now I idle around 1200 at start up and between 750-850 once warm.

    Radiator Fan Keeps Blowing Fuses

    I had a similar issue with my FAL slimlines. But it was popping my ignition fuse any time the fans would turn on. Ended up switching to a pair of 10" slim fans from auto zone and wired to a switch to fix my problem. Once I do a wire tuck I will have them hooked up properly but until that time...

    What did you do to your DSM today?

    Well it looked great for about 30 minutes and then dejavu struck and about killed me. Hood flew open doing 75 on the freeway. Thank god my hood is vented or I probably would be. So now I gotta go paint my parts car hood black and get this possessed hood off my baby.

    1g slim line fan install

    When I purchased my talon it had the FAL fans hooked up through the stock harness and ended up melting and shorting out. It was a huge headache trying to figure it out but I think the fans motors went bad due to shorting, is there a way to fix them. Now I have 2 cheapo slim fans hooked to fused...

    Radiator fan wiring w/o original harness

    Still trying to figure out my problem. I had the thematic switch working for a little while but it seems to have died on me. So now I am trying to go back and have it wired the right way. When I removed the old fans the wiring was mangled and melted so now I have to rewire things. Is this a fan...

    What ECU am I working with?

    So does that mean I should be on the prowl for a new ECU?

    What ECU am I working with?

    What ECU am I working with?

    Your saying this is a European ECU??
  30. SeanCollins

    What ECU am I working with?

    What about numbers on the board itself? I can see fairly clearly in the pic numbers and stuff which ones are the part numbers or s/n?

    What ECU am I working with?

    so I pulled out my ECU and it says lancer 79k on the case. My car officially confuses me.. 92 TSi with a 6 bolt bottom a 7 bolt head and 2g exhaust manifold and turbo and I'm tuning with a safc.. What's the path i should take with this ECU? I am still working out all the kinks with my craigslist...

    Loud air leak

    Unfortunately I have a switch for my fans under the hood and I guess when I closed it before driving off it didn't click all the way down.. Anybody tried swapping windshields on 20 year old NY cars?? I don't forsee it being very fun..
  35. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    Well it seems to be holding fairly well, but of course that's not the end.. Smashed my windshield and sunroof today.. What a great car to be the PROUD owner of lol

    Loud air leak

    Well I may sound like a cheap bastard but I decided to just JB weld a 1/4" fitting into it and run a hose back to my intake. Should be dry in 6-12 hours so I will let you know if it holds up or not.
  38. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    I will do what I can to hook it up the right way but I try and stay out of boost at the moment just until I know everything is Kosher.. So what kind of fitting am I looking for the opening in the valve cover to run it to the intake like it suppose to?
  39. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    The intake has been capped the whole time, I just never realized there was suppose to be a line venting the valve cover, it was this way when I bought te car.
  40. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    Well I found a diagram that shows the spot in question being ran to a catch can. Also it says to cap the intake manifold side and run the pcv line to the catch can as well. Has anyone else done this or know someone that has done this and if I should explore this path or not. Thanks guys

    Spotted a DSM!!! Let's do meet ups

    Ya that's me. Still working on my car but its getting there.I see a ton of 1g DSMs on Craigslist so hopefully we get some more new DSMers to the site.
  42. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    So I should not be to worried about driving it this way?
  43. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    Right, I am missing the valve cover vent line the one to the air intake not the PCV that goes to the manifold. What problems could this make?
  44. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    Thanks for all the great info guys I will try and get this fixed asap maybe this is the cuprit of my strange idle as well.

    SAFC 2 Newbie questions

    Now just to fix my Valve cover problem and away we go.
  46. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    So I guess my question now is, what kind of damage could have been caused by there not being a check valve on there?
  47. SeanCollins

    Loud air leak

    Thanks again liquid you always seem to get me on the right track, I think it has been this way since I bought it..

    SAFC 2 Newbie questions

    Fixed the rpm reading on the safc, I guess our cars display a 2 cylinder signal to the safc sometimes... Still not sure what to adjust on the safc. I changed the throttle points to 30/80 from info from the RRE writeup, but as far as changing the points, I am so confused, should I be going up or...

    I have been doing lots of little things to my car to get her running good but it seems 1 step forward 2 steps back is the way for DSM. Anyway I was under the hood this morning checking things over and I heard a decent leak of air coming around the crank sensor I believe it is, it seems like...
