  1. WTB: Stock frame turbo bigger than a 14b

    Looking for a stock frame turbo. Something that I can just bolt up and go. Bigger than a 14b
  2. Boost leak testing

    Apparently I can't figure out how to do a proper boost leak test (BLT).I did it at the turbo, and the pressure is going into the oil pan with a bubbling sound. Hot or cold engine, doesn't matter. Read if the bubbling was the case you should do it at the throttle body. So test there (with...
  3. Clutch switch activates brake lights

    Not sure if this has been going on for a while, as I never really have my tail end up against something to notice, but last night I noticed that when pushing in the clutch pedal, this activates my brake lights. I recently have rebuilt the clutch/brake pedal assembly, but that should have no...
  4. Aftermarket rear engine mount (roll stop)

    Figured I should put this here to have it documentedInstalled the prothane engine roll stops in my car while it was down getting the trans rebuilt. Car no has a cruising vibration from 2-2.5k-ish rpm, probably due to the balance shaft elimination (bse). Replaced the front with an aftermarket...
  5. WTB: Rear Engine Mount (roll stop)

    Need a stock rear engine motor mount (roll stop)I installed the prothane insert and I am getting a vibration from 2-2.5kish rpm, probably due to BSE. I am not liking it. What is listed in the aftermarket is wrong. #8105 is not the correct part number as it is too tall and also curved away from...
  6. Bolt Hardness

    I think I know that the hardness of the bolt is stamped on the top of the head, but can't find the answer to what the "7" stands for. Snapped the head off the transmission case bolt and trying to figure out if 8.8 hardness will work just fine, or if I need to special order a 10.9 hardness bolt...

    My trans is toast, looking for a good condition gvr4 or dsm combo 1st gear and corresponding input shaft.
  8. Black lower timing cover

    I was ordering a bunch of parts and noticed that the or black lower timing cover is still available. The stupid thing doesn't line up. Not sure if I got a bad one or for some other reason it won't line up to the bolt holes. All 6 bolt timing covers should fit, correct? Engine was originally from...
  9. Timing belt idler bolt

    I know that the 90 idler pulley is different from the others, I forgot that my engine came from a 90 eclipse and didn't order the correct length idler pulley bolt when doing my timing belt just now. I was able to find a bolt in my parts hoard that was the correct length to MF241281, but it...
  10. Alternator/Battery Issues again

    I am not having any luck trying to volunteer at stage rallies.In March, I replaced my interstate battery because it didn't have the CCA that it used to. In fact, if I left the car sit for a week it wouldn't start with out me charging up the battery. Then I took a road trip to volunteer at the...
  11. Battery light

    My alternator died on me (got almost 5 years out of an orielly one), in the middle of nowhere, on Friday night as my daughter and I were on our way to camp for the 100aw rally in Missouri. I haven't driven the car much, especially at night, over the last couple of months and didn't realize the...
  12. AC issue

    Having a weird ac issue, that I don't even know where to start diagnosis.

  14. Teach me about car audio

    I know nothing about car audio.My stock head unit wasn't powering the rear speakers and eneded up buying an aftermarket HU, pioneer MVH-X380BT click . This fixed the rear speakers issue, but my wife is complaining about the shitty audio quality. It has always had shitty quality, even after...
  15. Radiator Fan Shroud NLA

    The radiator fan shroud is discontinued and NLA, part# MB605113, which sucks as mine has decided to disintegrate on me. The section nearest the turbo seriously feels like foam and breaks off like foam. Dorman sells the whole thing, fan balde, shround, and motor, but the reviews aren't the best...
  16. 5th gear pop out

    Currently on a trip, and I noticed that the shifter in 5th gear has a lot of movement when you get on and off the throttle. It just started popping out now every once in a while.

  21. Hard starting issue after reconnecting fuel tank control valve

    I was getting a decent gas smell from the driver rear for a while, but never saw wetness from gas and figured it was vapor issue since the tank still was pressurized.

    Looking for the rain rail covers that are used with the roof rack so my roof looks less hacked up with the rack on it.
  28. WTB: Long block

    I was stupid and didn't check the noise that was coming from my engine. The timing belt was rubbing on the oil pan bolts. The engine wouldn't hold pressure of more than 5 psi and you could feel the air coming out of the oil cap when doing the boost pressure test and that is why I am not just...

    I am having an intermittent runs like crap situation, that is kind of weirding me out.Ever once in a while (usually in humid situations), the car will run like crap (like the MAF is unplugged and you can only keep it alive with throttle).

  50. Ignition / Door Lock Key

    Since I worked as a mechanic I have been anal about having sharp, not worn down, keys for my car. The reason for this is that a worn key will kill a lock cylinder.
