Everyone's flaming u on your car. Take my advice, don't get aftermarket parts just yet if the vehicle it's self can not perform even stock standards. I purchased my summit white 92 Feb 1. I ran with some minor problems, mainly leaking issues with coolant and exhaust. I started replacing components that would fail around this time and ended up this past week doing a complete head job. You'll never know the extend of engine damage until you take apart your engine. I'm with you on the whole car rarity thing, but don't blow all your money without knowing first if it runs. Hope to meet up with you one day, I'm slowly rebuilding my gvr4.

the only aftermarket parts im putting on the car right now is the fuel feeder line. and that isnt going to effect anything. everything else is being set to the side until the car i sin tip top shape then im going to mod things. i dont car if i get flamed for the car...i get it all the time for just owning a gsr...im used to it. im gonna do what i feel will make my car work...and if i fail then ill try and try and try til it runs and works. i dont care what people say they "think" i should do. i go by results.

Nobody gets flamed for owning a GSR, they get it for trying to mod one.

why would you do that when plenty of us have been threw this same damn trail. we are only helping you so your life isn't so miserable owning a GVR4. we want you to enjoy the car not hate it before you can even drive it.

Quoting Ian M:

If the battery has gone dead in those 6 months it has been sitting,any codes (if there were any) in the ECU will be gone.

The TB is a good hunch,and it's a easy thing to check.

Years of winter driving on Va salty roads would have done more damage to the stock fuel lines than 6 months of sitting,if they look good I'd leave them alone. I'd bet the fittings are going to be plenty crusty at the tank,though. Since a upgraded pump is in the near future,when you get it home one of the first things I'd do is take the cover in the trunk off and start soaking the fittings. You'll thank yourself.




+1, it took me a month or so to get mine to break loose! That thing was crusty as hell! Soak the hell out of it.

no 93s, but i found an 89. it has a full interior and full motor. SOHC automatic. i was gonna go back when i had some more time and money and grab the under dash piece with pocket, the manual seat belt conversion stuff, and the center console (it has that cool double flip up thing for the cup holders. if there are any other parts from an 89 that you guys want lemme know and ill swipe it and sell it to you for a small fee (like 5-10 bux for time and everything to get it)

Hmm.. I'll have to check it out next weekend after I get the galant up and running again. Think you could snag the alternator for me , I could use a spare for "just in case", I need a right rear dogleg.

so this hasn't been updated in forever. had a run of bad luck. first with wrecking my GSR (so sad just sold the engine today) and then the car i had to buy as a DD. 1989 Honda Accord LXi. thing is more of a POS than my galant lol. anyway got some pics after i removed the exhaust manifold. i think i need a new turbo

this is just a top view of the turbo in the car


this is a close up of the exhaust housing


here is the turbine side (or is it compressor i always get them backwards for some reason)


here is a spare turbo i have laying around. got it from dsmless back a while ago. it is a 16g, but i have been wondering. the only thing different is the fins. they are like double fins. i know i have seen posts before about this being the way to tell its a 16g, but the rest of the turbo is almost identical to the 14b in the car. even the numbers on the outside are almost the same.




i have some new plans for it as well. going to completely tear down the engine and build it from the inside out. getting rods/pistons along with a fully rebuilt head. looking for a good gasket kit right now. plan to rebuild the 16g sometime soon. any advice or comments you guys have just let em loose. inspiration or constructive criticism, key word being constructive.
