    1G Crank polishing at home

    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 ideas If 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...

    Jafromobile ( DSMYoutuber)

    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.

    Guys what about the electric turbo kit! I just found one on ebay claims 230cfm boost! All you need is that and one of the power adder chips that messes with AIT sensor settings!!

    General Tuning options w/o chipped ECU

    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?

    Resolved Is this rod knock

    Personal pref, but I don't run any timing covers anymore after having one shred my alternator belt and then the upper ones rubbing on cam gears. I could have spent the time and got new covers and clearance them out ect but I have had no issues after deciding not to run any covers. I briefly...

    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.

    You need an afr gauge. My stock setup right now is running a 16g on 17psi at 10.5AFR under full load. -This is on freshly cleaned fuel injectors and a brand new fuel pump, fuel filter and re-wire to fuel pump with 4gauge wire. Injen intake, full 3" turbo back exhaust. I am going link because...

    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

    Resolved Is this rod knock

    That could be your lifters, mine tick and make all sort of stupid sounds until they get good oil flow and warm up. Did you properly bleed lifters when you swapped cams? Also my lifters made worse noise after some miles and probably cycling dirty oil. I keep on top of oil changes but I did drive...

    Why am I doing this?

    Sounds good, I went through 6 revisions or more trying to use bolt on an bulkheads and I swear I don't know how it managed to leak. I added nylon washers to both sides, pipe dope quite a few tricks and wasn't happy with it. Even when I got it to stop leaking I could smell gas through it and not...

    Why am I doing this?

    Port that exhaust manifold while its off.. I managed to twist my main gas line when removing.. looks like you have a replacement bulk head? I resorted to getting an an-8 fitting welded on because I tried bolt on bulk heads and they would leak.

    Why am I doing this?

    I kinda dig the arizona ice tea thing going on its way different. Heat wrap on the water pipe might be a good idea, or a heat shield.. I might fab one up actually now. I don't recommend running that exhaust blanket from what I have seen of those things causing rust, maybe it will be fine...

    Marvel mystery oil gas 2g turbo

    Been running it in gas and a little in oil (going to change soon) and I haven't noticed any negative side effects, which is great. The main positives are that the engine starts slightly easier and idles more steady. I know it's not going to fix my oil burning issues, I'm hoping it's mostly...

    Marvel mystery oil gas 2g turbo

    I decid3d what the hell I have bad carbon deposits on my 2g pistons and by now likely valves too, I did a head about two years ago and noticed pretty bad deposits on the pistons. This winter I was forced to drive the 2g as a daily and due to other car issues it is currently a dd again. It...

    Manny The Mistake: A Lesson In The Dangers Of Nostalgia

    The miatta right? So in a weird turn of events last night I noticed more steam coming off of my car than normal. I checked and found I have blown a hole in my radiator. Just ordered a mishimoto 2 core full metal and new oem thermostat. What are the odds my car tried to suicide last night.

    Manny The Mistake: A Lesson In The Dangers Of Nostalgia

    Damn. One other thing to keep in mind I've had an overheat cause a thermostat to stick closed. So if you end up using that same thermostat again keep an eye on it. That is real unfortunate damage to the engine im sorry to hear about that. My car is now smoking a bit, could be from oil seals...

    2G Won't rev past 5000 rpm and backfires

    Also do a compression test, and check codes. If your car is running too rich it might cause symptoms like this. Mine runs too rich and burns a little oil so it has random hangs in throttle response. My way to fix it is send it until the engine explodes and rebuild. If I get a couple more years...

    Rag1983's 2G FF Street Build

    Plan on leaving the turbo there and not using an air filter? If track only car and trailered to the track its fine, no way I'd drive on the street with an exposed turbo turbine like that yikes.

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year!

    Idk about you guys but I've been in accidents both in standard cars and in tube frame cars. I can appreciate crumple zones, but in a bad accident I'd rather have a cage than crumple zones that close in. Have you guys seen the accident with the Evo going over at pikes peak? Roll cages are the...

    1G Removed front bumper and found this

    What's the fuss about looks like a steel pipe reinforced crash bar, I've actually thought about making one of these for my 2g. Mostly because if someone bumps my car I want it to hurt their car more. It in theory also might stiffen up the frame slightly.

    1G Ground Control Coil Overs worth it?

    Ground control kit on a 2g is great. 600/400 on konis. I may try 350# rear later. I set it up for about a 1" drop. The performance difference in handling is quite good. I have my car jacked up pretty high for winter which actually didn't hurt handling nearly as much as I thought it would. Keep...

    2G What brand flywheel is this?

    Yeah you should be good to go some people rather like the feel of lightweight flywheel, think in terms of rotating mass, you want more on launch but less pretty much everywhere else. It will Rev faster and decrease engine rpm faster off throttle. I would maybe recommend looking for a good deal...

    I was reading some posts about you should setup this way for autox this way for street and this way for road race. Tbh I feel like konis and ground control offer a pretty capable setup. The autox guys rave about the konis, which are really that good. But it's great on the street too. So there is...

    2G What brand flywheel is this?

    I've been told launching awd is less exciting as less rotating mass reduces effective acceleration initially. Track use on courses is likely fine and where lighter flywheel becomes more ideal.

    2G What brand flywheel is this?

    Anyone have direct input from driving cars with lightweight flywheels VS stock? From everything I've read it seems like awd stock weight is more ideal, fwd could go either way. Mostly sounds like lighter car is more ideal with a lightweight flywheel. Due to the lower inertia of lightweight...

    What modern car is most comparable to a DSM? In other words what would you buy for a newer car?

    I'm surprised you made it through that accident without getting real messed up. as for that car list.. I wouldn't buy many on that list maybe 370z that's about it, which didn't even make the list. drive and keep stock an Evo or sti maybe. issue with dsms is you will never get your time or money...
