    1G About 2g Black Box ECU in 1G? Car dies after 3 seconds

    should use the firing order from year it is, Cas inversion setting may be applicable?you should wire an obd2 port into the jumper harness, I believe it only needs 3 wires to function properly (maybe 4)

    1G Average 3 bolt rear diff temps?

    Has anyone monitored rear diff temps on our cars?I was just curious what temp range I could expect it to get into. I know oil breakdown happens faster higher temps.For reference I'm wondering about a 1g LSD 3 bolt rear, but I imagine there's probably not a huge difference for average temps.

    Anyone tired of people trying to devalue our cars?

    TBH it cost me $500 to get my turbo rebuilt. We put a factory new garrett on a 2g couple years ago and just the turbo was 1200.

    What did you do to your DSM today?

    1g we staple welded the broken sun visor plastic so I could re-mount the sun visor. The other day my buddy and I swapped out the driveline on the 1g. I greased the carrier bearings and used grease to soften the rubber on the bushings. The lobro joint is shot on my old driveline and I have been...

    weird thing to care about. I prefer if my car is worth a big mac and it beats the brakes off of a v8.

    1G Opinion on paint!!!

    that paint looks pretty good tbh. What do you want to do? if your just doing it to sell the car later I would find a buyer now that wants the specific color done? If it were my car I would pick a solid color and paint the car one color, personally I am a fan of flat colors so again preference.

    Scared to drive my car

    you can get agreed value through hagerty insurance, these cars are collector items you know

    Check these parts while doing maintenance 1. Valve cover baffles / retainer welds 2. Screw & nut on your oil cap

    So red locktite might be a good idea. I have used exhaust nuts that are crushed (slightly oblong) that basically self lock once torqued into place. That was my theory behind crushing the nut in a vice. It seemed to work for now, but I might just be looking for a different cap.

    Check these parts while doing maintenance 1. Valve cover baffles / retainer welds 2. Screw & nut on your oil cap

    Was doing maintenance to 2g's and 1 g's lately and noticed something I think is easily overlooked and can cause catastrophic failure.1. The baffle welds? on stock valve covers can break off leaving a small chunk of metal to go blasting into your head and end up god knows where likely...

    To be honest with a title like that, I didn't know what I was about to see. Risky click. I mean mostly I figured it was something like this. This crank is now considered ground down with that much material removed?Do you figure it retains most strength still? Also what about knife edging...

    What about running rotary spark plugs?

    Sometimes I get weird ideasIf you've seen a rotary sparkplug it's made wildly different from a standard spark plug. It's made flat so it can run close to the apex seal without it chopping the electrode off.Couple points:1. Harder to blow out spark even under high boost.2. The sparkplug...

    You could say he is the dsm godfather. Don't cross jafro bro he will run up on you with the most over analyzed 4g63 and then teach you where your build will fail and show you how to prevent it.

    Profile: Jafro - was last seen: Nov 11, 2020 - The man the myth the legend. If I win the lottery I will build a shop dedicated to Mitsubishi motors, mostly DSM's and employ jafro to make videos full time. Alternatively maybe we should see if jafro will do a patreon or something.

    Jafromobile ( DSMYoutuber)

    Jafro is my homie and we don't even know each other. He doesn't really get on social media and I don't think he runs here on the forums. We should get him to come on here. I have had brief convo on youtube with him in discussions. He also needs to fix his 2g some day he better still have it.

    Go for it! I dont know the specifics of what connections and data go to the odb1 ports. There are ODB2 readers that do what your looking for and quite well. The ELM327 is one of them. Maybe someone makes a ODB1 version somewhere?

    Official Bench Racing Thread (how fast is my car/how much HP can I expect)

    Higher compression good. For knock and boost maybe not as good? For speed good. You listed flow rated = 57 trim = 49lb/min or 60-1 = 65lb/min (RED)Thats a pretty good sized turbo. I am going to say you run low 11s maybe into 10s.

    No, the eprom chip is burned and thats that. The reason for ecm link is it swaps out the eprom chip for a writable flash one and gives you a usb to odb2 translator cable and the software to access / change data
