If you can't tune it to not blow up you shouldn't be driving. Tuning for power is another story.

I would use 3rd gear to tune. We do not have a 1:1 gear, but 3rd is closer than 4th to being 1:1. Just my thoughts.

I guess that explains why everyones dyno graphs say gear 3

I wonder how much power I'd make if I did mine in gear 3

not everyone dynos in 3, some people dont doit because it puts to much stress in the motor on 4 gear

Not every car has a 1:1. In the AT DSMs, 3rd is 1:1; however, MT do not have a 1:1 gear.

1st 2.846
2nd 1.684
3rd 1.115
4th 0.833
5th 0.666

The 1g DSM AWD MT 1st gear is 3.083, which is why lots of DSMers use the GVR4 1st gear-it is slightly taller at 2.846.

the reason that it's not a good idea to dyno in 4th is that not only is it significantly overdriven at .833, it's also the single weakest gear in the whole transmission, so putting all that stress on it doesn't seem wise.

You'll read a tiny bit higher in 3rd than you will in 4th, but it doesn't matter. dyno's are for tuning, trap speeds read power.

I'm not arguing either, but I find it rather amusing that when I first came on the board and was thinking about using an AEM, people were telling me that it was "too much" for me, and that I should consider using DSMLink. Then I buy DSMLink and people ask me why I'm not using AEM.





I just had to chuckle since this thread is over 2 yrs old and things have changed since the start of it.

(no knocks, though, my car hasn't daily driven in much longer than that and I'm sporting a MAF translator + SAFC FTL... but it was pimp (controversially) back in the day)

I was skimming through this thread and the car is starting to make me think of the jackie chan car in Cannonball Run II. How many miles of wiring is going to be in this thing?

Again, no knocks, I'd really like to see this car in person when its done. It would take weeks to go through it and see all of the small details. Very cool stuff.

I currently have the black plastic K&N adapter for my 3g AFM but I dont like that it sits at an angle wrt the honey combs and isn't the same shape. I've been thinking about an airbox for a while and I like the look of that one. Could you post a link for that one? I searched google but the result I got was different from the one in your pic.

Sure, but postage will be a bitch!!!

No link to the EVOIII airbox I'm afraid, these are used units. You really only need a Mitsu specific box. I'd look at some later mode EVO units and just weld on tabs to make it fit!

You can get in line with the vultures and wait for me to sell mine but they've all been waiting 2 years already and none of them have anything
