  1. 1G Who can tell what's wrong with my car? Excel files attached

    It looks like your o2 sensor is not cycling at all. This would cause the car to run very poorly. What is your mod list? I am assuming that this is a 1g car because there is no reading at all for rear o2.If you're running all stock components, then the datalogger is telling us that the o2...

    The Honeymoon is Over 😭😭😅So at this point, the car is running pretty hit or miss. Takes forever to build boost and feels like an absolute turd until it builds about 4500rpm. I decided to turn the boost down and get the tune ironed out. Well first off, boost won't turn down. I have...

    The PO had #2 welding wire running to the trunk - attached under-car running along the frame rails and secured using the old rear powersteering line clamps. Cool deal. I went to advanced auto and picked up a battery box and a 125amp fuse. I used a rear shock tower stud for ground. Here's some pics
  4. Saving a GSX

    The drives side mount does basically nothing as far as upgrades go. It's the front and back engine mounts that matter. Keep the drivers side and trans mounts stock unless you enjoy PRYING them out and back in every time you mess with them. I hate the poly drivers mount on mine. Wish it was...

    Did the free fuel filter "mod" where you line up the fuel exit-hole of the banjo bolt with the fuel line.Also painted intake/added VC breather barbs. Chose clear lines for now so that I can easily see if it's blowing any oil through.
  7. Street Build 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    I did it to my awd 1g. Imo it doesn't make it much different. A little easier than no ps but not a huge change. I love the idea of not having extra fluids, hoses and pumps tho so I will recommended it 10 times outta 10 👍.
  8. Injector seals failed

    I've seen this before.... the boost is hitting the fuel cut and blowing out the rivets of the manifold pressure which causes the fuel to bust out through the seals. Turn the boost down Skippy 👍
  9. ECMlink 2nd gear wot log shitty timing... why?

    Well, I tried leaning it out a few pulls after this and it just seemed to run out of steam and not pull as hard. Was about 11.1 afrs during that pull and it showed 2.5 degrees of knock. Also lost 40hp according to link... felt like it too hahaI guess I'm just uneducated. I thought that the ecu...

    I just set my base timing (had to advance it actually) No boost leaks fic 850s e85 42psi base fuel pressureTook the car for a run and the ecu pulled timing like crazy once i went wot. Before correcting the base timing, car would see 16-18 degrees full timing during pulls. What gives?

  12. 1025/2000 Galant vr4 Street Build

    I had been wanting to change the yellow valve cover. It's not too bad but I'm not a huge fan. I DO like the "mitsubishi" on it tho. I will be prepping it sometime to put it back on, but, it was pushing a tiny bit of oil out of the oil cap during boost, and I had a couple spares laying around...
  13. 1025/2000 Galant vr4 Street Build

    When I did my boost leak test a couple weeks ago, I fixed all leaks except for the throttle body shaft seals. They weren't leaking bad, but I decided now was the time to attack them and hoped that it would also help with getting the car tuned better as it was giving me fits when it came to...

    You shouldn't have to adjust it that much. You COULD if you wanted to, to make use of every single hp possible, but most ppl just get it set and leave it alone.

    For whatever reason, a well-made J-pipe always seems hard to come by. Looks like you got set up tho 👊.Whenever I decide to take the IM off for cleaning/wire tucking, I will cut the line down closer to the rack. Eventual plan is to "miata mod" the rack. Did it on my current 1g and I like the...

    When I pulled the trans the 2nd time, the trans mount bolts slid right out of the transmission,, so I had to drill and tap those and go up to a bigger size bolt :banghead:.While I had the turbo off, I decided to ditch the ps and bracket, along with cutting off the mount bracket. The rear ps...

    So, off comes the trans again! As I'm working underneath, I realize that you can't even tell I power washed this stuff just a month before when I had it off! Last time I just assumed the oil mess was from years of vc gasket leakage. Started looking there, ended up, hereThe bottom center stud...

    Well, next order of business was to get a new clutch. I remembered xtd was a thing when I got out of the game so I hopped on ebay and started looking around. Ended up buying a "spc" brand "stage 3" 6 puck sprung disc for $50 shipped and a 2300lb xtd "stage 4" pressure plate for $65 shipped. The...

    Without a mas or o2 sensor, the ecu will make the car run in "open loop" mode. It will run like TRASH until otherwise. The reason it started right up after an ecu swap is because the ecu had time to reset itself. (You can do the same thing by disconnecting the battery under hood for 90 seconds...

    You will be fine running just one fan. Especially the stock fans they move a lot of air.

    Drove the car for a couple weeks just enjoying it, cleaning it up a little and getting back into the swing of ecmlink and of wrenching. Crazy how much I have forgotten 😬😅. So far the car was crazy inconsistent, but ran "mostly good". I ended up doing a boost leak test, fixing some leaks, and got...

    Got the car home and didn't even try to start it. Probably a little crazy of me,, but the PO is a mechanic and both his brother and boss have gvr4s, so I trusted that the trans needed to come off.Pulled it (what a greasy filthy mess!) and found a clutch spring had popped out.Replaced it...

  29. 4G Montero Builds?

    When I was 18 I worked as a service porter for a mitsubishi dealership. Someone used to bring in their manual trans montero with 260k miles often and it was in great condition. I loved that thing and have wanted one since.First I've heard that they came with a 4g64 though! Now I really want one!

  32. Street Build 1G Build: Return of the DSMer!

    Early on you replaced the steering rack with "upgraded steering rack". I see you don't have a ps pump so is that a de-powered rack you're using and how do you like it?

  34. How do you run lower than stock psi with 1g parts

    Stock boost uses the bcs to make it around 11psi. Wastegate pressure is around 9.

    I did the "miata mod" and did NOT reweld, after talking to someone who had over 15k miles on their rack. I haven't got to test it out yet unfortunately. Hopefully that time will come soon. The work itself is pretty easy.

    Haha gone a few days and whew! I never said my car made more power by adding the exhaust restriction, just that it was MUCH funner to drive, but I guess that's just flat out impossible, I just "had other things wrong with my setup", and somehow tossing a muffler on fixed them LOL .94awdcoupe...
  39. Does Size Matter? 2.5" vs. 3" Exhaust discussions. [merged]

    I too have felt the lag/loss of low end power when I ran an open 3" down pipe on my 14b with 7cm housing. First drive after bolting up a dual chamber muffler directly to the downpipe I noticed a HUGE improvement in drivability/low end response.
  40. Boosting base FP to force more injector flow

    A lot of this depends on how much boost you're running. They'll probably be harder to tune with a higher base pressure too
