I’ve been running this 180 amp alt in my Spyder for a while and it’s been great. I have a multi-amp sound quality system that I compete with and it’s been working well
I talked to English a few weeks ago about tuning my black box and they said that they won't do it because they have a higher probability of bricking the ECU, and they don't want to deal with that on their dyno.
My issue was that I replaced the steering wheel with a non-airbag QD wheel, so there was no way to reset the SRS light and keep it off. I believe that the SRS module is separate from the OBD-2 system and needs a specialized reader to read and reset the faults, but I may be wrong.
I paid $800 for my 98 GS-T Spyder, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. I replaced the top myself with a new one, it only took me about 10 hours total and it looks great. If it has a bad paint job you can always dip the car for a few hundred dollars.
Make sure that the sensor is installed on the back of the drivers door lock assembly. Also, when you push the button on the remote to lock or unlock, you have to push and hold the button, not just press and release.
Like I said previously, there was a considerable amount of maintenance that needed to be done to get the car back to a reliable condition. I didn't take a lot of pictures of this portion of the build because its not the main focus of the thread, but everyone has seen tons of pictures of timing...
Here's a little history about this car and what I plan on doing with it.
I bought this car from a coworker who drove it daily for many years. It was just another cheap beater car for him, and he neglected it like most do with cheap cars. Aside from some ugly 20" rims, the car was mostly stock...
Just read your whole build log and I enjoyed it. I bought a neglected 98 Spyder at the beginning of the summer and I've been working on getting it up to 100% over the last few months. Threads like this are great because they show us what works, and what doesn't which helps us save time and...
I don’t care if they’re stock, or just something period correct that looks good. Thanks and I’ll try to make it down to your coffee shop sometime. If the Spyder is in work I’ll drive down in my BRAT instead
Hi everyone, Ive wanted to get a DSM for almost 20 years, and I’m finally at a place in life where I can make that happen!
I have a coworker that had a “well used” 2G Spyder GS-T with a lot of questionable work, mods and basically neglected for most of its life before he got it. He got a new...
Hi guys, after 20 years of looking I finally joined the DSM world. I just picked up a 2G Spyder GS-T from a coworker and it has the ugliest rims I’ve ever seen in my life. Does anyone know anywhere local to find some stock or decent looking period correct rims?
