    2G Turbo a '96 Euro non-turbo Eclipse

    They are F5M31-2s, allegedly with weaker and smaller internals but otherwise identical bellhousings and dimensions. They lack the 3 breather ports on top. But yes, he'd also need to think about at least swapping in a GS-T trans. I've heard some EU folks using boxes and gearsets from other Mitsus...

    2G Turbo a '96 Euro non-turbo Eclipse

    I'm coming to NL to trade a Civic to a guy for another car next week. Maybe I can find you a decent GS lol. There is a GS converted to turbo here for sale for 5k euros with ECMLink v3 lite. Also from what I know, if you import a car from another EU country it shouldn't be a problem since the RDW...

    2G Turbo a '96 Euro non-turbo Eclipse

    Our N/A 7 bolt blocks (as well as 6 bolts) do have oil squirters in the exact same places as turbo blocks. I can supply photos if you need or you can check my build profile. I scavenged a 7 bolt N/A shortblock and put EVO 7 pistons and rods in it.There are quite a few threads discussing this...

    E3 16g dyno results

    Oof, how do yall keep getting those good f***in' numbers on the E16g?! I've got pretty much the same setup and I'm still struggling under 300 whp based on link calculations. Currently at 256whp 12 deg timing 11 AFR and 20 psi boost :banghead: . Sorry I sound like a grumpy kid but I guess I am...

    2G Replaced valve stem seals but now high idle.

    Charge up your lappertopper hook it up to good ole Link and log a cold start all the way thru fully warmed. Once fully warmed check your airflowperrev value as well as ISC pos and TPS volts. If those are out of spec (airflowperrev ~0.25-0.28 g/s, ISCpos ~30, TPSVolts @0.63/0.65v idle), tweak as...

    1G Transfer case choices

    @pauleyman Hey Paul, so just to get this straight (after also reading your VFAQ article on this), the leak comes from the pictures brass plug above? So oil flows from within the transfer, through the splines, through the plug and out to the atmosphere?I remember now that almost every time I...

    2G Which Outlander parts fit 2gNT

    I believe 1st/2nd gen Outlanders share a lot more parts with EVOs than DSMs. If you have the patience you could just load up an Outlander VIN in a CAPS-like program/website and start comparing part numbers.

    AEM How much timing reduction for 9.0:1

    Am I reading this right? Let's say I'm running 22 psi selected boost via controller. And let's say my ECR is around 8.5:1. Does that mean my actual FCR will end up being 21.22psi? If so, that would make sense, and it really does show that CR isn't all that big of a deal in terms of tuning so...

    ECMlink NLTS 2-3 and it was lean

    How old is the sensor? It could be lagging from age? I just compared with my logs where I'm rowing thru NLTS (innovate LC-2) and I only get 0.35seconds of 22.4 reading during the shift. I think in your case the ECU is still running your target AFR but the gauge is lagging. You'd really need to...

    I got even with a scammer after 18 years

    That was a good story. People can be real petty but I guess it's easier in life to be on the asshole-end of things than it is to be decent.

    2G Mixing Poly & OE Motor Mounts

    I've ran poly mounts since 2017, front rear and driver side to be exact. I could never find the trans poly mount so it's remained stock. The polys are great and definitely worth doing but now my trans mount has worn so much that you can definitely feel clunking and negatively affected shifting...

    "Lucky" Sevens Talon

    Thanks for the kind words. There is actually only one other 2G turbo Talon in Bulgaria but it's the pre-facelift and the owner swapped Eclipse bumpers on it. There are another 3-4 1G Talons, the rest are N/A Eclipses. Timo is right, I've also seen some Talons in Germany but they are still much...

    Shimming the pivot ball.

    I shimmed the pivot ball with an OEM 1G head stud washer (I believe 2mm thick?) when I installed a new Competition Stage 2 Clutch kit. I had my flywheel resurfaced, however the machinists f***ed up majorly and took it down to 0.590" even though I explicitly told them 0.608 is the minimum...

    what oil filter housing is this?

    It does look like the same thing. Also it has no oil pressure sender (for an oil pressure gauge on the dash) but does have the oil pressure switch for the dummy light. As far as I can see, RVRs don't have an oil pressure gauge on the dash like DSMs do, so this would make sense.Actually...

    Great history of DSM video

    This is really cool. At the 3:00 minute mark, you can see one of the rarest versions of a 1G, which is a 6 bolt N/A AWD unit with the turbo bumpers but has foldable side mirrors and side markers on the fenders, for the European market. I've only seen one of those ever. Also you can see they are...

    2G New wheel bearings

    Honestly you got two choices really, either keep the OEM hubs and press new bearings in (SKF are the best followed by Koyo), or if you want new hubs, take your wheel off and place the new hub/bearing onto the wheel to check if it fits concentrically. If it does, run it. If it also rubs, go with...

    2G New wheel bearings

    I learned the hard way and I would advise you to KEEP your OEM hubs and just swap the bearings over. This however requires you to hammer them out and use a press, as well as cutting off the old stuck-on bearing race.The problem with many aftermarket bearing+hub kits is that the hubs are ever...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    I don't have another MAF on hand and my 4 bar SD kit should be arriving this week or early next so I'm completely removing the MAF and stock intake snorkel.I've never installed a flexfuel sensor and I wasn't even aware that value was being logged. The only fuel-related item I have logged is...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    What I meant was on a cold start because the RPMs are high and injector pulsewidths are longer, the gauge will read base pressure even with the vacuum line attached. As the RPMs drop and engine warms up, it will start to pull strong vacuum and pull the AFPR diaphragm up, allowing more fuel to...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    So, in a sense, all else not taken into account, increasing the MAF sliders would have the same general effect as decreasing my global fuel (closer to 0%)? So, technically, I can drop my -55.5% global fuel to let's say -40% which would make my injectors act like 750cc and then go back to the maf...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    I understand now. But that's very odd. I'm running an EVO 9 gold pump which I recently rewired to get higher voltages to it. I also installed an AFPR which I've set at 43.5 psi (3 bar) and I paired it with FIC 1000cc injectors. When I input all those fuel stats into the global fuel calculator...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    Off how? I have noticed on almost every timing cell selected by the ECU, I'm actually getting from 0.4 to 1* less timing in the log. Sometimes my coolant temp goes over 95C which I know is when the ECU starts pulling 1* timing for every 3 other degrees, but it can't be this all the time since...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    Thanks guys. Maybe I'm being too naive and expecting too much from this turbo. I was under the impression that the evo 16g starts entering its optimal efficiency at 22 psi and up to 28-30 again depending on whether you're running corn juice or reg gas. In my case I'm using 93 which is more...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    Thanks; your table looks much more uniform and blended in. I adjusted mine slightly but with lesser timings still as I am on 93RON. I will drop the boost down to 24-25 psi and see where that takes me.What does this HPByAir metric really tell you? I checked mine and it's around 5-6. Are you...

    ECMlink I'm confused, can't seem to reach the 300whp goal on E16G

    I went to the airstrip and did 9 pulls from 1st through third, using third gear as my main reference as it has a 1:1 ratio and offers the most accurate figures. I have also configured the HP/TQ settings to match my car. I tried:1. 28.2psi and no knock @ 9* timing and 10.8AFR, that netted me...

    Oil Priming

    If he did a decent job at rebuilding, he'd have packed the oil pump full of assembly lube/grease, which should still be in there ready to go. Pull the MPI fuse at the engine bay fuse box (it's sometimes labeled as "ENGINE" fuse), I believe it's a 20 amper. Then you can turn the crank a few times...

    Friend of mine who runs built autos on his 2 DSMs had the same issue with medium/big turbos and high stalls off the line; his cars would creep and ruin the staging. Ended up putting EBC yellowstuff pads at the front and upgrading to Outlander brackets. Those two mods made his cars entirely...

    ECMlink OBDII to ECMLink? (BimmerGeeks Cable)

    Worth a try. I used a $5 blue VAG cable which I soldered a short wire from pins 1 and 4 then used it on my brother's JDM Legnum VR-4 through Evoscan. It works and reads all the data and i can log, but I cannot flash with it; would need a proper Tactrix cable for it.So maybe the cable you got...

    Welcome back! Looks like a nice build you picked up and continued. Do yourself a favor and get some Chrysler 300C hood struts to install on yours.

    2G Are these EVO 7 or 8 pistons?

    Looks like I never came back to update with results, but ever since assembling the engine in May 2019 it has ran with this EVO 7 rod/piston combo without any issue. I have it all documented in my build thread. Again many thanks to Hiroshi for confirming the specs!

    Good points all around. I have the original '97 Talon FSM and I need to cross-check on that page 71.

    2G Replacement Oil Pressure Sending units and pressure readings

    Well after a few days of driving around with the Beck/Arnley unit, it seems that when it settles, it reads like the old one, so at idle I get real low pressure (which still makes no sense in my case!) and sometimes it will sit at the middle during cruise. HOWEVER, it's still 80% of the time way...

    @pauleyman Paul, I want to admit my idiocy and just share that I have, in fact, fixed the creep on mine.
