This is my new dsm build its my 6th dsm ive owned a few, my first start was in colllege in 94 detailing at the local mitsubishi dealership. i found this one in detroit michigan, close to home from a fellow dsmer who has few. It was cheap and solid, just needs little tlc, will be my restore project for the future, a clean car, reliable, with a punch when she is all done.

Ok the time has come to do some updates, first the turbo. The holset h1e converted to 60mm, turbo from Justin in a .55 bep housing. Ive worked with him for about 14 years now with turbos, and has great service, and meeting him in person a great guy.

Nice! I did the 7-blade hx35 in bep on my 2g and the thing rips compared to the 16g that was on it previously. I think you will be pleased comparing the power to mhi varients.

I'm running the 8 blade, Justin said ill love it, so I'm excited to see and hear this thing spool around town, ive got lots of mods to make this a little street terror that's my goal besides being reliable this go around that's more important keeping it together, ive seen it all love hate , more love still in after 2 decades.

Well update I got the car hour from my house, its in pretty good shape some rust and dents but its
a good start. Gonna start with wire wheel to remove some rust, then por 15 in some areas, and keep rust from getting worse, fenders to get hood to prime and paint, and doors to fix, or use my spares. Basically I'm doing a swap from one shell to the other, I had a 1ga but it was too far gone so most of this journal will be, the process from this point on . Ill be adding parts body work and paint, till I get the turbo set up redone, and engine rebuild from stock to forged down the road.

ok ive been busy with the car, I pulled the rear end out and sand blasted it and primed it, then I went to meet paul volk to pick up the https://volkmetalcraft.com/product/1g-active-toe-eliminator-ate-kit/ from him close to me, real nice piece its a the welder now pics soon, later ill get the upper and lower control arms. https://ostarmotorsports.com/Store/Product/Ostar-Mitsubishi-DSM-1G-Rear-Subframe-Bushing-Kit, then I ordered a set of these to install In the car. Pics comining soon but this is a big part of the suspension, I plan on getting coil overs to run next year, but this car is far the best one ive owned and going to be a rocket on rails before next years shootout, stay tuned.
