    Yeah, you could go to a 14B, but what condition is it gonna be in...how long will it last? Turbos have become pretty affordable over that the last several years. I mean, MHI E16G's....T28's....Hybrids....Sleeper 16G's....18G's...HTA68....FP3160. Any of these can be had for under a grand (The...

    Yup just keep your eye out for the lowest listing on ebay....I'm sure you'll find one in your favorable price range.I have this rad (it's my second). Reason being is that the first one started leaking out the core walls....after only a year (not even). Contacted Mishimoto direct, and...

    seeing 15.5 volts..

    Agreed. Since the sensing wire reads voltage and adjusts gain accordingly, too little/too much resistance will affect how much voltage the alt should put out.Found this article that relates to wiring the Saturn alternator. (you may have read it....if not, hope it helps)...

    Hey man....just popped back into this post to see what your progress has been. So you bought a new battery (old one was shot...no surprise) Also, you've tested the MPI relay, but with questionable results? I found these 2 threads here that I hope might bring you closer to a solution...

    seeing 15.5 volts..

    The above posts regarding the voltage regulator being bad or stuck open, are pointing in the right direction.However, I'm gonna assume that prior to re-locating your alternator, it was working fine? If so, keep in mind that any loose electrical connections at the alternator terminals...

    Please save us. Anyone help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's really too bad Mitsu didnt build these cars with a 'safety relay' (basically a backwards relay that prevents any current going thru the system when one accidentally reverses the jump cables) I think that should be standard on ALL vehicles equipped with an EFI.Lets try to use process of...

    Wheel size confirmation

    A 245/40/17 poses 2 problems: On a 7" wide rim, a 245 will most likely experience "sidewall flex" i.e 245's are too wide for 7" An 8" rim would be more ideal. And 2nd, using that tire size on a 35mm offset will most likely require having the fenders rolled (maybe...maybe not. But they'd be...

    weird starter issue

    Gotta agree. Since you've definately ruled out ignition switch, the solenoid's stuck in the "active" position. Was the relay ok? It's not uncommon to accidentally bridge the terminals during install (imperative to disconnect battery) To be absolutely sure: If it's possible, remove starter...

    Absolute Proper Way to Paint Plastic/Vinyl Interior Parts for the DIYer

    car died over night please help

    Sometimes a bad alternator diode can cause a battery to run down. A good diode should only pass current in one direction. If it leaks current in the opposite direction, it may keep the charging circuit on when the engine is not running, causing the battery to run down. This kind of problem can...

    Best Metal for Heat Sheild

    Stainless steel would work best as its resilient (wont warp) and wont tarnish. The real benefit of a heat shield is keeping the engine bay temps down. An exposed manifold would radiate more heat....But thats all a heat shield is good for. You can wrap or ceramic coat the headers to keep...

    Noooo...from my understanding its a 2.2 stroker. From what I was told, the Magnus 2.2 is truly a 2.156 something. I guess because the cc's cross that 2.1 and a half threshold, its called a 2.2.I can see why from the figures you posted earlier, why you'd say its a 2.1.....so....just to...

    Cams for a 2.2 stroker

    Makes sense. When it was a 2.0 liter, the reason I opted for the 264 intake was to retain some low-end torque. Now that its gonna be 2.2, torque levels should increase slightly which is why Im thinking a 272 intake would be a nice compromise...Anybody know if I keep my current setup...
