so if i replace the elbow i have to replace all the intake piping? that bolt in the manifold is just bouncing around in there. i cant get it out, but it wont tighten down either. i have no idea what it is...

ok so since im going to redo the fuel system anyway...since the current lines are probably a little rusty and i wanna upgrade anyway. will it effect the engine too much if i upgrade the whole system now to 6An lines? im talkin all the way from the pump up to the filter, changing the filter out to an AM one then from the filter to the rail. this way later on i can add on an AFPR without worrying about the rest of the fuel system looking cool too lol. i can get everything from SBR for about 300 bucks. and its an upgrade i wanna do anyway and it needs to be done since the fuel lines been cut. ideas? advice?

when i picked up the car the guy stuck a battery pack in it so i could roll down the windows to get it on and off the trailer. the wipers work, all the internal electronics work (windows, locks, dash lights, seat belts) but i didnt try to turn on the headlights. im gonna wait til my income taxes come back and buy an optima. im not going cheap on anything for this car. only the best for the vr4

The stock piping is about "1 7/8,which is what the stock 1g elbow diameter is. Generally,"2 1/4 or "2 1/2 is what you would upgrade to. Unless you are into jerry rigging it (sounds like you are not),I would just port out the casting flash inside and run it until you upgrade the pipes and IC.

Can you see if that bolt protrudes into the manifold runner?

manifold runner? i felt under the manifold and i can tell it doesnt go all the way thru. and i know how bad the bolts can be if u take it off. im thinkin ill shoot it with some WD40 a couple few times over the next couple days then this weekend see if i can try and get it out again. my big plan right now since i have to wait for my ECU to come back is the rims/tires. i have the stock rims and brand new tires (less than 300 miles) from my GSR that im going to sand down and repaint for the vr4. only 3 of the stock wagon wheels came with the car so ill be selling them just for a little extra coin to throw back into the build.

If I were you, id address that mystery bolt issue first. If there is a nut on the backside of it (inside the runner) and that decides to come off, it will go right into the turbo and it will be ruined.

^^ +1.
Like mentioned that mani was likely tapped for an EGT probe ( altho #1 is the better choice IIRC ).
Anyhow someone wanted that probe and just shoved a bolt in the hole to cover it. Worst case find another 2g or newer manifold to avoid leaks.

is changing out a manifold hard? i would guess that u just unbolt it, put the new one on with a new gasket right? the only thing im worried about is breaking the olts between the turbo/manifold or even the manifold bolts. i have been crazy busy this week with work and this volunteer crap im doing plus my wife had a dr appt in DC yesterday...blegh i wanna go work on my car and relax lol

By runner,that means inside the manifold. I'd want to see what exactly I was dealing with.

It appears that someone already changed out the stud in the exhaust housing for four bolts,so getting the manifold off is super easy..as long as none of the studs break,then you are drilling. Start soaking,you might luck out. There is a gasket between the head and block,and one between the manifold and exhaust housing.

Not a bad idea pick up some new studs and nuts,and turbo bolts and concave washers (the turbo bolts like to work loose if you re-use the washers) just to be safe.

so as soon as my taxe3s come im getting a few things for 897. im gonna replace the steering wheel if i can find a decent one, since mines all ate up, gonna get the fuel line replaced (wanted to go with SS, but i think for now ill go stock and upgrade everything later). gonna get new turbo bolts, manifold studs, and ex mani gasket. i am shopping for a timing belt kit. i dont want to source everything seperately. i would like to go with a kevlar belt. from what ive heard they last longer with more abuse. SBR has a kit for around 350 with kevlar belt, tensioner/pulley and idler pully. is this a decent deal? i dont know how much these things usually cost and i dont wanna go spending money i dont have to that could be spent on other, more fun things.

also im getting a couple things to put to the side for later isntallation. namely an EGR blockoff plate, FIAV blockoff plate, boost gauge and oil pressure gage. when i get my AFPR the gauge will come with it. any other gauges i should look into?

Grab a EGR blockoff plate from any 1G DSM with the 1.8L NT motor. They all have them, and they're either really cheap, or free.

so i went out today to put the hood from the vr4 onto my GSR...had a mishap with the hoodpins so its toast. bent the hood back into some semblance of originality and laid it across the front of the vr4. just so nothing gets in the engine bay. how come nobody told me that changing a hood latch cable was such a pain in the ass...it took me like 2 hours to do all of that. anyway after that was done i started messing with that bolt thats in the exhaust manifold. its stuck. just wobbles around in the hole, doesnt come out or tighten down. im just going t remove the exhaust manifold and get another one. i wanna get a stock one but on the other hand i know ill be upgrading. would it make much of a difference if i upgrade to an E3 ex mani before i do anything else to the car? before i even get it running? the studs are toast so i have to replace those anyway. the turbo bolts are seized as well so thats going to be fun. anyway just an update on what ive been doing.

also while i was working i was listening to my radio and killed the battery in the GSR...damnit

nope. my kinda vehicle lol. i like taking something that most people think would be useless and turn it into something amazing. the only thing wrong with it as far as i can see is the ECU. and that is with terry right now getting fixed.

on another note...i was out at the local race spot last night (abandoned roads, no pedestrians, no traffic) and i was puttin down some decent times with the GSR. only 2 seconds slower than an s2k...i was surprised. i was coming in after my last run, gettin ready to go home, when i found a curb >< DOH!! i bent BOTH of my lower control arms. car got towed. gt it out today and have been trying to get the bent ones out. took me almost 2 hours to get the drivers side out. yeah its that bent. ill get some pics once i get the good ones out and the bad ones so u can see a comparison. needless to say im ridin the shoe leather express and carpoolin for about a week or so. on a bright note i can be a candidate for the JSB cru now :P

yeah but you should find the route problem instead of doing all kinds of shit to the vr4. find out if it even starts. see if the thing even cranks by hand.

updates: bought a bunch of new parts for both cars. got ARP SS manifold studs and turbo bolts, new timing belt kit, boost gauge, shaved valve cover, 1g TEL shifter/boot, my ECU is fixed and on its way back to me, new tie rods/ends with control arms and stabilizer bar linkages, jdm fmic, and a walbro 255 that will be installed at a later date once the car is running. aeromotive fuel filter with SS -6AN feeder line kit. and just to be a show off i got a clear timing belt cover too. the control arm swap is going good, bout half done id say. drivers side is complete and just a few more bolts to get off to get the pass off on the gsr. im stoked to start doing some real work on the vr4 and get her on the road.
