    JDM Took Hook hmm??

    Look how they strap an evo 8 & 9. Tow hook in the front (middle of the bumper, under the car) and in the rear is around the control arms. As long as the tow hook is mounted with good support I think it should be fine.
  24. Backinajiffy12

    JDM Took Hook hmm??

    I want one that I can use, so my car is easier to strap to the dyno.

    making intake coupler fit

    Jimmy rig it. If you have both a 2.25 and a 2.5 coupler put a peice of pipe inside the 2.25 one and connect them using a clamp. I would not suggest this to be long term or even short term.

    Intake manifold Vacuum Hose

    Dealer, check DSM Graveyard - Your #1 Source for DSM Parts!, ebay, look for a throtle body that would have one on it. Or go down to the auto parts store and buy a softer hose.

    Misfire/Backfire...Idles like crap

    this motor had a full rebuild 30k ago, i have never messed with the timing. I do know I had an intermitten injector on this cylinder. If that injector went out, and that cylinder was running hot would this be the result.Very few things are worse than melted calves!

    mifiring after a drive

    Boost leak test, vac test.Test your injectors: turn your car on let it idle and take the injector cap off 1 by 1 and see if you notice a change. If not that injector is most likly bad.As far at the ECU goes take it out, open it up and search for any signs of corrosion or broken caps.

    Issues with initial start up...

    Plugs, wires, coils, CAS, ECU, boost leak, Vac leak...the list goes on and on. Start your car up let it run for a second, then go through and pull off the injector cap 1 at a time, and see if you notice a change. If you dont you probably have a bad injector. Is your BOV recirculated?Pull...
