    1g shocks all the same?

    Yup, all the fronts are the same from 90-94.

    1g shocks all the same?

    The front struts are all the same, the only thing that's different is the spring rate used. The rears, on the other hand, are different between the FWDs and AWDs. There is something of interest though, if you need rear AWD struts, the 2G AWD struts will bolt on. If you find this odd or are...

    Front lip question

    There is only one factory lip that came on 1gs. It came on the twin cam, FWD Eclipses and fits on the small bumper only. They were body colored but I picked up one from a junk yard and painted it black.

    Factory Key

    I doubt the OE Laser key has the pentastar on it. I still have my OE Talon key and there isn't a pentastar logo on it or the Eagle logo (which would have been sweet). If you want blank Mitsu keys, support our vendors and check out JNZ Tuning. They have them for $10 a piece.

    Just bought my first DSM last night

    Nothing like grave digging a 3 year old thread. Keep up the good work guys. :thumb:

    Need Better Airflow

    You can make the stock A/C fan fit. You'll have to trim the lower portion of the shroud a bit, but it will work. I was able to cut the lower mount off and trim the shroud. It's a lot of fiddling but it worked great. I'd post pics but I foolishly let that fan go when I sold my old car.

    need this toy, who has one?

    I still have the one I bought years ago. The only downside is one of the wheels fell off and I have no idea where it went. It's the only way to achieve 3-wheel motion in a DSM.

    evo oil cap

    JNZ sells just the gasket if you need it. I bought one last year and it was only $1.29. There's really no need to replace the whole cap if you don't need to.OEM Oil Cap Gasket : JNZ Tuning

    Technical Advice Needed: Turbo Delete

    In regards to the power issue, disconnect your wastegate arm from the flapper and report back. The lack of forced induction coupled with the low compression makes the car very slow, I know from personal experience. I say either keep the turbo or swap in a NT engine if you want it naturally...

    Restored 1ga GSX wheels

    Those look really good. I just finished restoring a set of 2GB Talon swirlies so I know how much of a PITA it can be.

    You should also look into recirculating the BOV.

    Koni Yellow front with KYB AGX rears?

    I didn't know Bilstein made struts for the 1G. Do you have a link?

    Koni Yellow front with KYB AGX rears?

    Grave digging this thread. I'm in the same boat as the OP with the Koni struts. I've had AGXs on my old car and didnt really care for them. This time around, I have Tein lowering springs instead of GC coils and want to maintain the semblance of a decent ride. Do the 2G rear Konis have the spring...

    mustache bar STUDS loose?

    It's the locating/mounting brace that connects part of the rear diff to the rear subframe. It's called the "mustache bar" because it looks like a mustache.

    Need help with 1g BOV

    I'm assuming that you're talking about the 1g BOV that has the angled nipple. Its hard to tell since your second link doesn't work. They actually come from the factory that way. They were installed on the ABS-equipped cars because the vacuum hose hits the ABS bracket with the straight nipple...

    Noble M400 car

    To clarify some things: the Noble is not a true "kit car". It's actually a factory-built car based on a design created by Lee Noble and built in Leicester. The engine is based on the V6 from a Taurus (Mondeo in England) with a pair of IHI turbos strapped to it. The reason it's a "kit car" here...

    How to tell what your compression ratio is

    You can either use modeling clay with a known density to calculate the volume or a liquid and measure, at the meniscus, in a graduated cylinder. What's my prize? :D

    Evo I transimission?

    Since your trans is a manual AWD, it's a W5M33 unless Mitsu changed that on the 2gs. The EVO 1-3's all used the same 7-bolt/W5M33 trans set up, albeit with different mounting points, that you have in your car.Now I'm a little confused. Did the half shaft you pulled off the car before removing...

    2g turned off in traffic

    It could be your timing. I had mine jump when I was idling. Did about the same thing you described. Your best bet it to line the cam timing marks up, put the #1 piston at TDC, and see if the notch on the crank pully matches the "T" line on the lower cover.

    What ICP clamps are you using?

    Do yours have nylon lock nuts or a jam nut on them? If you don't, then they're most likely backing up from thermocycling.

    Are you afraid to change a timing belt? You shouldn't be after you read this.

    I would also like to add that the tensioner bearing MUST be properly preloaded and torqued to ensure proper belt tension. There is a misconception that the hydraulic tensioner is what puts tension on the belt. It does but the hydraulic tensioner's job is to take up slack as the belt stretches...

    I'll see what I can do. My car is several states away at my dad's house so it may take a day or two.

    Post your lowered 1g pics here!

    I believe it was a little over an inch. I didn't want that large of a drop and Eibach doesn't make the 1g pro kit anymore so Tein was the next best. But they are the priciest of the lowering spring options. It's also important to note that the car is full weight.

    Post your lowered 1g pics here!

    Here's my car as she sits now. Currently it has Tein S-Tech springs and GR-2s but those are blown and are due to be replaced with AGXs in the spring.

    Dented Wastegate it OK?

    I'm bringing this thread back because I have a similar problem. I had bought a 16g off one of our members and didn't realize the wastegate had been smashed where the body necks down.

    Mechanical Engineering is a broad field, let alone the automotive end of it. You're best bet is to specialize in one aspect i.e. engine and cooling, chassis and suspension, hvac, control systems, NVH, etc. and then relating it to automotive design. There is a lot more going on than people...

    HID install parts

    You can install the lights yourself. Just pull out the old bulbs, install the "HID" bulbs, plug one connector into the ballast and the other into the existing harness plug. If you can't do that, then you shouldn't be modifying cars.On a side note, these "plug and play" kits are not true...

    just got a Hanyes repair manual

    I don't know how much you paid for that Haynes, but you can pick up a FSM for your exact year on Ebay for a fair price. It may be a little bit pricier than the Haynes, but it's from the factory and has more information than the Haynes.

    "Friday" removed from youtube LMFAO..

    When I read the title, I thought that Youtube removed clips of the movie "Friday". I still cant believe that someone charged $2.99 to watch this crap and people actually paid. I remember a time when you had to have talent to be famous. I blame Millie Vanillie and Vanilla Ice for the downfall.

    Wow, I thought I was the only one to have an ASC electric sunroof. If it has not worked since you bought it, have you disconnected the switch and verify that you are getting 12v to it? It could be something as simple as a bad switch. Worst case, you have a bad motor. I have never really dove...
