    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?

  5. Evo Suspension

    Looking to buy a full set of evo springs/struts for my 1g and surprisingly enough haven't found anyone claiming to do it yet. Of course the gvr4 guys have been doing it for years. I found a decent thread on it here but again no one who's done it on a 1g has chimed in.I'm just looking for...
  6. Window Weld Rear Subframe Bushings

  7. Inertia/Roll Over Sensor?

    Long story short a buddy flipped his dsm and busted a cam gear by landing upside down. He thinks he shut the car off but can't be sure lol. We're going to pull the head either way because loads of oil leaked up past the piston rings but somehow mentioned this mysterious inertia switch and it's...
  8. ECU Wiring - Steve please help!

    Ok here's the dealio:My buddy just bought a 91fwd tsi and since I recently totaled my car he decided to buy my ecu+link. I couldn't get his ecu out because one of the plugs (I don't remember which one it is atm and the car isn't near, but it's the plug that has 18 wires going into it) in the...

  10. Injector Resistor Bypass

    I recently scored some PTE HIGH IMPEDANCE 1200s from a buddy while his car is down. I searched both here and on the link forums and can't find anything concerning removal of the injector resistor box and wiring to the new injectors.So let's hear it.
  11. Question about T-belt when Pulling Head

    The previous owner said the t-belt and all that jazz was done about 6k miles ago, so I don't want to do it again (mainly because I've never done one and don't know how) As of right now the head is ready to come off, minus the head studs and t-belt.My question is this, can I mark the t-belt...

    CAR IS BONE STOCK ASIDE FROM A BOOST CONTROLLER SET TO 14PSI^^Factory CD player!Don't mind the mess inside, I was swapping the stock ecu back in since I forgot that my link cable is at a buddies house. Paid $700 for the car, and if you were following...
  13. Coilover Gurus Needed

    So the first thing I want to buy for my new car is the suspension components, and I figured I'd start with the coilovers since they'll be the most expensive item. On to what I'm looking for:I want a car that's going to handle GREAT, I'll actually have it set up for autox/road racing rather...
  14. How to Disable Factory Alarm on a 1G?

    Well I bought my new 91 awd and learned two new things I've never known about DSM's.1. Some 1g's came with a factory CD player :rocks:2. Those same 1g's also came with a factory alarm system.The previous owner said that the alarm was going on and off randomly a couple days before it...

  17. ???s About Link Logs/Tuning

    1. Why is my airflow always highest in 1st gear?2. How varied should your timing be during a WOT pull, say 4k-redline?3. Airflow and estimated hp should rise in a linear pattern correct?
  18. Link, e85, No Wideband

    How should I go about doing this? I'll be getting a wideband as soon as I find a deal on one, but for now I'll be going without. Should I just lean it out until power drops off? I've read that e85 doesn't make much power past 12.5ish:1 afr, any opinions/insight/experience? Thanks guys.
  19. Anyone Running a NT FPR at High Boost

    I read through all the NT FPR threads and one of the wisemen stated that they tried a nt fpr on a friend's car and it would knock at anything above 18psi. He said they didn't know if the fuel pump couldn't keep up at that pressure or if the NT FPR wasn't raising the fuel pressure anymore and it...
  20. Replaced Broken MAS Now This?

    Here's the background:I have a 2g mas in a 1g car. Car was running fine, had been with this setup for almost 2 years now, I was driving down the highway and the worm clamp that holds my intake on fell off, ended up dragging my entire intake setup down the highway for about 3/8 mile. Limped...
  21. Free Fuel Filter Banjo Bolt "Mod"

    If any of you have been on this website long you know about the fuel filter banjo bolt and how restrictive it's said to be. If you've ever changed your fuel filter and looked at the bolt you can't help but wonder how your motor gets the fuel it needs under boost. Well I thought of a VERY simple...
  22. Fuel System Upgrade Info - Something Doesn't Add Up

    According to this article from vfaq, the stock fuel filter only flows 1.9lpm @60psi fuel pressure, which is only 114lph. When they turned the fuel pressure up to 75psi the actual flow only increased .1 lpm. The article also claims that the stock fuel filter can only flow a max of 2lpm, or...
  23. Change Rings With Head On?

    So I came across someone said in a 3 year old thread about being able to change piston rings just by taking off the oil pan, unbolting the rods from the crank, and pulling them out. Is this true? Is it possible to get them out without taking the crank out? Is it possible to hone the cylinder...
  24. CHEAP Traction Help for FWD Guys

    I already posted this in the fwd thread, but since a lot of fwd guys don't read that I thought I better start a new thread and let everyone know -Alright guys I did some experimenting this past week with some coil spring boosters from autozone. These are basically pieces of polyurethane...
  25. Went to the Track Tuesday!

    Finally got some clean passes with the talon running "right" lol. Still on stock suspension with nothing done for traction except motor mounts. Tires are goodyear eagle all seasons, which aren't too bad but aren't very good either. First pass of the night was a 13.512 @ 110 with a 2.363 60'...
  26. Homeade Rear Sway Bar?

    Been doing a little bit of welding and stuff lately and I started wondering if it was possible to make a rear sway bar. After looking at how they curve at the ends I decided that it's still a little beyond my skills, but that brought about a new idea.One fwd 1Gs have a solid rear axle that...
  27. Where is TurboGlenn????

    Just wondering if anyone's heard from him? With his lifestyle he could either be dead or in jail lol, hopefully neither.And I've noticed A LOT of members have been going missing within the past few months, what's going on here? Is this just a common thing that happens every few years...
  28. What are you spending your tax money on?

  30. Lightweight Rotors from other Cars Maybe?

    So I've been looking to reduce some unsprung weight, and rotors came to mind (relatively cheap and easy) Well I'm going to the junkyard today and I was thinking/wondering if rotors from other cars would work on ours as well, maybe something like elantra rotors or 1.8 rotors (if they're even...
  31. Do Colder Plugs Affect Driveability?

    I've never thought about it until a buddy brought it up yesterday. We get colder plugs when we're running more boost, but wouldn't that be harmful to the cylinders during normal driving conditions? He was suggesting irridium plugs for this, which everyone says not to use, but it has me...
  32. Pulled My Trans Tonight in 1 Hour 5 mins!

    So I'm happy it went that well. This is the second time I've pulled it ever (twice in 7 months) This was working by myself on my garage floor, no air tools, I was hauling though trying to get done.I was having shifting problems and then it wouldn't go into gear at all with the car on. Once I...
  33. Automatic Trans Only 2nd and 3rd gear when warm.

    So I picked up a 1g auto car that I'm planning to flip, but it has one problem I want to get figured out before I sell it.After the car gets good and warmed up it tries to stay in 3rd gear and 3rd gear only unless you manual downshift it into second. If you put it in first it will only go to...

    Ok so my Grandma gives me a call the other day telling me her heat doesn't work in her car. Said at first it was overheating (hadn't tried the actual heat yet) and my uncle came and put a new thermostat in the car. That was about a month ago I think.When she recently tried to turn the heat...
  37. No Clutch Pressure Only When Car is On

    Weird problem, I know the system is bled all the way because I bought a speed bleeder because I thought before that it wasn't bleeding enough, well now I'm sure that there's no air in it. No leaks on any of the lines, no leaks around the master and slave.When the car's off the pedal pressure...

  39. Possibly Getting Fired, Have ???s About Unemployment

    Well guys to make a long story short, I'm pretty sure my company wants to merge my position with the supervisor so that they have the payroll money to add to another position in the company.But it doesn't end at just that, I think they're trying to get me to quit so that I won't get...
  40. Free Colder Air Intake

    This article explains how to very easily help your air filter breathe in colder air. I had been looking around the forums and all I could find was people routing ducting from the front of the car onto the airfilter, which while I'm sure that works pretty well, I like to take the simple approach...
  41. E-85 and Coolant Temps

    So I've been playing around with mixing e85 and 93 pump lately. (I know I know, don't give me crap for it, if I blow it up so be it :) )But anyway I've noticed quite a decrease in coolant temps (according to the stock gauge, haven't logged the temps yet) I was wondering if this is normal...
  42. Clutch Engagement Changes with Heat

    Newer Exedy stage 1 disc and PP, new master and slave cylinders, bled for over an hour (on 3different occasions).When I start the car cold the engagement point is RIGHT off the floor, but after driving around a little the engagement point moves up about 2 inches. If I do a highway drive the...
  43. Why DON'T I Have Boost Creep?

    I've seen a lot of boost creep threads lately and it has me wondering why I'm not experiencing it. :hmm:I have a 14b with a 7cm unported turbine housing on it (from a evo3), a larger ebay o2 housing with external dump, and a 3" downpipe with a 3" in 3" out muffler on it. I'm running 19psi on...
  44. Ever Change a Clutch in a Mopar?

    My father-in-law needs his clutch changed in his 73' Cuda, he asked if I wanted to do it but I'm not sure if I want to take the risk since it's not my car. I tried finding some stuff online about doing it but didn't come up with anything. There's not even a Haynes manual for those cars (to my...
  45. Lost All Clutch Pressure.....Again

    Alright, 5 days after I got the car going from the clutch job all my clutch pressure bled out somewhere, I tried bleeding it for about half an hour to no avail, so I just went and bought a new master cylinder, now, 9 days after the new master cylinder I went out to start the car and same thing...
  46. [RESOLVED] Pretty Sure I Blew It Up

    I was out last night for the first time since the new clutch install, car was feeling great, it was cold out, but I turned my boost down a little (18psi) just to let the car get "back in the swing of things". Ran a WOT run and it felt great, did it again and it felt even better this time, but...
  47. How Long Did Your AFTERMARKET Clutch Last?

    Alright, post up:1. What kind of clutch2. How many miles3. AWD or FWD4. Track time or any other things you might feel are worth mentioning.If the clutch is still alive and well (or dying) then give us details, but don't vote unless you've had one die on you.
  48. Drivers Side Axle Not Engaging?

    So I'm putting my car back together after the clutch job, and everything's back on (except wheels) and I start the car while it's still up on stands and go through the gears, my friend noticed that my drivers side axle isn't spinning :confused:I shut the car off and spun it by hand but it...
