    14b flow

    Well, I ran out 2nd gear when the motor was cold back in December and blew the 14b. I guess it was dying, because The S16g I'm running now spools much faster and creeps like CRAZY, and I'm only running a 2.5" exhaust. I'm going to have to port the daylights out of the WG passage.

    1G AWD starter removal

    Great guide with pics, made this process much easier. This is my 3rd 1g DSM, but my first starter swap. Mine wasn't rusty, but quite oily, probably from my recently blown 14b experience, I blew a crapload of oil out of the BOV after I got the new turbo back on.I would have preferred a...

    My 14b is dying really hard near redline, what are my options?When I hit 22psi in the mid-range it's pretty powerful with no knock, but it starts to come down, I want to say it only has 14psi at redline, obviously I short-shift more often than not.I'm running a stock engine in my 91 GSX. The...

    Air Filter On Turbo [Merged 10-7]

    What I would like to know, is if anyone found a model of Air-filter that connects directly to a 14b/16g inlet, without much trouble. I was browsing the K&N custom application book, there are a few that look like they might work, but it's a tight fit down there.Anybody find one that works...

    Air Filter Directly on Turbo?

    I am running blow-through, and trying to clean up my engine bay.Has anyone had luck finding an air filter that will fit directly onto the 14b/16g inlet? Maybe not directly, but one that stays pretty close to the inlet, without requiring an intake pipe?

    I think you'll be fine. It may run a little rough at first, but once you top it off with some fresh gas, then run out that tank, you should be good to go.

    Leave on your exhaust manifold when tapping for an egt gauge?

    I believe the turbine is still spinning, since air is going past it. I've been wrong before, but I'm pretty sure about that one.

    good or bad buy?

    I disagree. The condition of the body is a HUGE part of a car that age. A little rust behind the wheelwells, or in the floorboards is killer. If it's truly solid, everywhere, it's worth the extra money.

    Just for the record, the phrase is "let the buyer beware."It comes from Latin; "Caveat Emptor."I know this is a car forum, but I like to help educate people when I can. I know I've been screwed over by our education system in this country as much as anyone, but I try to help when I'm able.

    sticking waste gate

    My E316g WG actuator was sticking a while ago. Just check it out, take it apart, lube it up if necessary. Mine was fine, and just starting jacking up. I think the heat just warps it a bit, and it starts catching on the housing or something else near it.Good luck

    WG actuator problems

    My E316G has worked flawlessly but for the actuator (and perhaps a little unwanted creep here and there). I don't think I have to tell anyone about what a good turbo it is, but I haven't seen many people posting actuator problems. Recently my actuator started sticking open. I checked it and...

    That is very true. I didn't even know what it was that I was craving until I had it....then I knew that's what I was missing. I get irritable, like someone pissed in my Cherios when I don't get some boosting for a while.

    Tools Needed to Turbo? Or Pay Someone?

    Fuel Drop at higher RPMs

    I'm thinking a 255 HP be a good upgrade for you. Or if you're ambitious, pick up a Supra pump and just be done with the thing.The 255 (non high pressure) flows measurably less at higher pressures and the lower voltage from your wiring would worsen the situation. I would re-wire, buy a...

    Yeah, I bet 15 years of filth will come pouring out of all the cracks. Is brake-cleaner safe in there? I'm not sure how fragile the electrical connections are inside there, all of my locks are original and I only need 1 key, I'd hate to ruin the ignition by doing something hastily.

    Boost creep or Over boosting...? weird boost issue..?

    That happened to me once, turned out my flapper was only opening a 1/4" or so. It stopped the boost intially at the preset setting, but since so little air was going through the flapper it would boost like crazy about 600rpm later. I'd run boost source directly to your actuator, then check the...

    I have the Full Throttle Speed bolt-on FPR. I liked it because it uses all the stock lines, and bolts directly onto the fuel rail in place of the stocker. This made for a very simple install. and it is already tapped for a gauge. So I just bought a gauge at a local performance shop and...
