    A proper build thread for 1501

    Craig, what's the info on that carrier? Is it a reasonable replacement for the stock ones, as the kits are drying up?

    Clutch Grind?

    fair enough, I haven't seen a clutch/flywheel for a FWD in probably 15 years 🤣 I just remembered something being bigger.I don't understand how the clutch grinds on the trans housing

    Clutch Grind?

    Do you have any measurements? I want to say that the FWD clutch is bigger than AWD, but it's been a lifetime since I read anything about it.Also, small world, I spent a lot of my childhood out in Duvall, and there are several people on the boards in that general vicinity; I know @mitsuturbo...

    Need help with my altenator pulley

    I did a little BFH massaging to the car where mine was because I was a little paranoid, but even with stock mounts and hitting the limiter on 2-3 shifts at 10,500 I don't have any marks from it hitting. Usually pulling the tensioner arm allowed enough clearance to sneak a belt through though...

    Found, thanks!: Trunk/Fuel door release levers (and possibly cables)

    I'd like to buy a replacement fuel and trunk lever setup for my car. If the cables are in nice condition I'm willing to buy those along with them also.Neither appears to be a super expensive part on performancepartout, but they're out of stock so I'm hoping someone has something laying around...

    Rear knocking noise?

    Since you mentioned it seems more to the one side than the other- have you checked the wheel bearing or the cv joints on that side?

    TD05 late spool

    While you aren't having the issue at idle because the valve is staying closed (the problem you likely saw with the stock BOV), if you're actually making boost, and the valve opens when you lift, you can get stalling or stumbling- additionally with a small turbo, recirculating will have a...

    TD05 late spool

    It won't directly impact this, but if you didn't switch to GM MAF or speed density and you're doing VTA, you're only introducing problems for yourself.Boost leak test is a good first step, followed by testing the actuator. If you want to do a quick and dirty test, and you're comfortable with...

    Clutch - SB Endurance Stg 3 vs Clutch Masters FX300 or Fx350

    I replaced a roasted CFDF in my talon with a sprung six puck (FX-400) and the pedal was lighter than an ACT 2600 and a really nice engagement IMO. It was easy enough to drive that my wife & mom both drove the car and had no complaints (the manual steering was a gripe by my mom in all fairness)...

    Blew a rocker

    2G head with an evo3 intake manifold is probably the best setup for a sub 550HP street car, and with a cast magnus or JMF billet, probably the best setup under 850. The 2g head is a substantially better design than the 1g, and unless you're trying to make 4 digit power there are NO downsides to...

    Which rotors for Diamante calipers?

    You'll have to test fit with some 15's, but obviously, the OEM GVR4 wheels are 15s and fit. There are some spoke designs that won't clear on them, but I don't think that's the majority.

    exhaust manifold

    With super large turbos, there are gains with the Morrison Fab over the FP, but the FP isn't going to hurt power on a 14b/16g frame turbo.Given that back in the day, the thing was to get an Evo3 or 2g manifold (and port the crap out of it), and the FP basically puts you where a ported evo3...

    fwd to rwd

    You could convert to a vr4 drivetrain but at that point why not go AWD instead of RWD?If you want a RWD Galant (my question why would you), there are vastly better drivetrains you could swap to, but at that point you either need very deep pockets or major fab skills...

    Which rotors for Diamante calipers?

    The 1g 92.5 rotors are the same as the SL, and the gvr4 used the same caliper as both, but the 3s & DSM are 5 lug hence the very different part number
  20. slugsgomoo

    Which rotors for Diamante calipers?

    91-92 GVR4 rotors are 4 lug, and use the same calipers as the NA 3000GT, so I'm not sure why they wouldn't work for you?

    #461... Soon to be a real car again (again)

    I actually started working on the car again a bit last weekend but found that I need some extra tools (and a lot more patience) to measure all the valve clearances, and whatnot to get things degreed correctly. I will say my cam gear indicators look wonky, but at TDC the dowel pins are up, so...

    Should I replace this pan?

    I doubt there's a chance that's balance shaft related- they only exist to save vibrations from your seat- Mitsubishi sold tens of thousands of Sirius platform engines with no balance shafts from the factory.That said, it looks repairable, but you can get a non-OEM brand new pan for $60 so...

    Exhaust Manifold 411(T3 to TD05h/TD05 adapter)

    Anybody know this car or owner?

    Mark, did you ever end up seeing the car? it shows pending on fb now. Too bad the guy didn't post the badge # (or get it in a photo). CF hood, EvoX seats, some decent looking stuff under the hood, it seems promising, plus who doesn't love KG?

    Steering rack upgrades.

    the best you'll get for that IMO is probably a quickener (really common on rally cars).I'm in the middle of converting my car to electric PS, though it's just assist on the column, not changing the rack. I'm doing it to be able to clean up the engine bay, as well as adjust how much assist I'm...

    Ecu going out? Popping noise from dash

    not the problem here this time, but it can be- if the ISC goes out, it'll torch the 105 driver in the ECU- If your FIAV fails and leaks, it will definitely happen. So either do the blockoff/bypass plate (lame and costs money) or the free method here at DSMTuners and save yourself some pain...

    Pics of custom 10an oil return line set up?

    mine's very short, but I ended up with some 45* fittings in there, and I have an HKS manifold so the placement is a bit different. On top of that, I have a -10 welded to the pan, which I like for eliminating at least one leak point.

    Need suggestion urgent on power steering

    keep the gvr4 reservoir if you want to keep the 4ws (actually low PS fluid warning) light. Just cap the returns and you're golden. I've got a 1g rack in my car for the ease of 4ws delete myself.

    Trying to squeeze an S362 in

    I think the problem is that the JMF manifold was built around the idea that the biggest turbo it would hang would be a 35R...I'm running the HKS manifold and there's enough room to just barely clear the lower motor mount with my T67. Unfortunately I can't go any bigger without a different...

    Thanks guys. Because I can't leave well enough alone, I just ordered some stuff to convert to electric power steering as well... Hopefully it doesn't drag out the process too much as I want to drive the car this summer, but I can't help myself.

    #461... Soon to be a real car again (again)

    ^^ Mark is correct. The balance bar allows you to choose which cylinder (front or rear) gets more power, so that's the adjustment right there.As for ABS... NO.It's garbage from the factory- it's 1980's dual channel glacial junk that increases stopping distances (my super non-scientific...

    thanks! definitely hoping it helps make the car a bit more composed.

With the factory bias, and the big fronts, it's really easy to lock the fronts with...
