    What did you do to your DSM today?

    OMG! The hangout has been dead since was all left on the same day in 2010! A lot has happened! the factory is closed. I have 3 1G DSMs. all FWd. Finally got a Laser. I mostly just put gas in them and fix the brakes and suck or blow leaves off of them. Missed you all!

    4G63 in 1974 VW BEETLE!!!

    sorry, forgot to refresh. Just get a new boost gauge from the classifieds! My pretty Eclipse (I have 2; one pretty, one ugly.) also overheats, even though mostly stock. I think I just put a bogus water pump on the engine. It happens, it's a thing. There are aftermarket water pumps out there with...

    that idle sounds very high. I'd check for leaks before wasting time thinking about anything else; including mis-fires. This is a pretty big build, stick to basics before going paranoid-crazy and obsessing over details. You're doing an awesome thing!

    4G63 in 1974 VW BEETLE!!!

    1990 CAS was 1-year only. 90 cas is not compatible with 91-94 ecus. you can change the pins in the harness connector at the ECU, but it's easier to just use 91-94 parts

    wouldn't be an issue if it was air-cooled. If I were Oprah, we'd all have free air-cooled 911's, on me! good luck with the frozen block...If I were Oprah... Free air-cooled 911's for everyone on this thread! then no frozen blocks. Too bad I ain't site is messing with my head

    sorta an interesting thing for me... My other automotive love besides the 1G DSM platform is my 66 type I VW. If I chopped up a perfectly good piece of German Beetle to put a 4G6 in it, I'd'a done a transverse mid-engine with the 5-speed mitsu gearbox and driveline, but, whatevs... Good for you...

    Personal Issues.. Don't know where to go..

    If you were really wrong, try to apologize, and don't feel like a wuss for it. If you were really wrong. It sounds to me like this has a lot to do with what happened to you in high school, and how you never dealt with that stuff. I'd think that you are aware of this, since you're the one who...

    Removing/Reusing Outer Tie Rod End

    Put a nut on the stud, and beat on that with the hammer. And apply pressure to the tie rod to help pop it out while you beat it with the hammer. And/or heat the knuckle, or just buy a new boot and use the pickle fork. Or get a hold of a scissor-type ball-joint press.

    1.8l eclipse worth parting out a good idea?

    MAF is the same, too. I think. So are all the pig-tails and relays. Definitely worth it, if you have another 1G. Plus, someone may offer you a few hundred for the engine or trans, those little ####ers are good for 300K+ miles!

    This boost leak test has me stumped

    Isn't it pretty normal to have a little leakage around the rings on a static BLT? The rings are designed to seal when hot, in motion, for brief periods of the cycle. Not under constant pressure while cold and motionless. I always get a little leakage into the case, out the breather, dipstick...

    Tuning issue, or head gasket?

    My 94 NT to Turbo conversion runs like crap. It's driveable, but at about 4500 to 5500 rpm, it stutters, bucks and backfires badly. It even seems like it's hitting fuel cut, but there are no boost leaks. After 5500 it will rev to redline smoothly. This is all the same whether it is under...

    Lean sometimes at idle and under load, failing o2?

    I would say it's the fuel pump. It can hold the correct pressure at idle, but not deliver adequate volume. If all your fuel trims are maxed-out, but everything else is OK, it's a safe bet that you need a new fuel pump. But do a BLT first.
