  1. Partout: 543/1000 (UPDATED w/ current parts list)

    Here's what happenedThe car is currently at the EH Motorsports garage where Evan will be helping me to part the car out. In fact, those of you on Facebook might already be talking with him about parts.To simplify this process, I've created a workbook for us to track what's being sold...
  2. The end (UPDATE - asshole located)

    Some presumably drunk asshole decided to end my VR4 ownership at 1:30am a few Wednesday's ago. Hit-and-run while parked in front of my house. The paperwork is all settled, and while the $6500 the insurance company offered me is a testament to keeping good records and providing market value...
  3. Switched to ignition under the hood?

    Is there an easy place to find a lead that is switched to ignition under the hood? I've got a new radiator in with it, a new thermo switch. The switch is working well enough, but wired directly into the battery means it runs even when the car is off. it doesn't run long, but I'd prefer it didn't...
  4. Goddamnitsomuch

    No questions, just a cautionary tale and a need to vent because seriously, f***.12*F here in Portland a few days ago. Started up my car yesterday and it was missing pretty bad and running very rich. I do have cold-start enrichment setup in link, but 11.0:1 was pretty extreme. I let it warm...
  5. Squeak after wheel bearing replacement (Found it... UPDATE)

    So three weeks ago I had both of my front wheel bearings replaced by a local shop. I then left town, just returning Friday. I've noticed that one got a fairly noisy squeak coming from the front of the car and I'm thinking it's likely related to the work. Now I've got no issue taking my car back...
  6. Scirocco radiator blues

    Well, I think my Scirocco radiator experiment is coming to a close. During normal driving, I'm right between 196*-206*. Run it even moderately and it warms up. Of course it does. The thing is that with normal driving after some spirited shenanigans, it just doesn't cool back down unless I'm...
  7. Lean AFR spikes @ WOT w/ LC-1 WB

    Just when I think I've got this car nearly there...I'm seeing AFR lean spikes from my LC-1 @ WOT. Now I just had an aeromotive FPR installed a few weeks ago, so that's my absolute first thought, but there's not much to an FPR, so after verifying the pressure and that the hose is zip-tied down...
  8. Methanol kit recommendation

    The Internet is lousy with opinions on who makes the best kit, but I'm curious about the experiences of actual VR4 owners. I've got LinkV3 and activating the alcohol injection from link makes sense to me. It would also seem that progressive controllers aren't worth the expense with Link...
  9. Something that's been missing. Whar FPR?

    As i consider what next, I am faced with a question that I don't know the answer to. I've got a stock FPR and rail along with my high-flow pump and 950FIC's.How is this holding me back?
  10. DIY JDM-ish grill

    When I got my car, the PO had shaved off all of the badges and locks before painting the car some Porsche grey. I'm "meh" on the door locks, but I never liked the fact that the emblems were gone. As it turns out, the emblem on the grill wasn't gone, just covered in bondo and painted over...
  11. Still fighting bouncy WOT values (FINAL)

    I'm still seeing some bouncy values at WOT. I'm running SD, so I'm not sure what's causal and what's symptomatic. If I had to guess, the bouncing RPM value is causal. In the screenshot below, you can see that Airflow, Fuel Flow, and RPM all track the same bouncy behavior. The end result is...
  12. Hood louvers - sanity check

    As the temps start to creep up here in the PacNW, I'm realizing the need to vent my engine bay is going to be real in about a month. Rather than wait, then panic, I'm going to do the work now. I figure i'll also get my aerocatch hood latches installed, too. What I'm seeing now is actually fine...
  13. WTB: '92 trunk tail light panel

    When I first got my car, the panel was somewhat f'ed already, with a lens that wouldn't quite pop in all the way and a crack across the "VR-4" badge. Well today I resolved to get the lens to stay in and the damned thing cracked. Looks like the panel itself was damaged at some point, so I suppose...
  14. Center tail lights on trunk interchangeable between years?

    My already cracked trunk lights cracked a bit more and it's time for replacement. I'm not partial to the VR-4 badge on the '92 lights, but buying '91 lights don't get me much of they don't fit...*EDIT*It would seem as though that VR-4 badge isn't year-specific? I can see there are two...
  15. Cold start on cold morning ok. On warm morning, not so much...

    I'm sitting in my car this morning warming it up and unlike was previous few weeks of morning, no issues. The difference: it's fairly cold at the moment.As the weather began to warm, I started getting hard starts. Car would fire up OK, then idle for 10-15 seconds, at which point it would go...
  16. Sway bar bushings - what/where?

    For the moment, I'm just looking at doing the front sway bar bushings as I know them to be shot. I figure new endlinks aren't a bad idea either.Are the bushings in the front the same as other 1g AWD's, or are they VR4-specific?Any recommendations?
  17. WTB: Front hub assembly

    I've got a bad wheel bearing, and you don't do one side without doing the other, so I'm looking for two. My guess is that if I just try to do the bearings themselves, I'm going to discover at the worst time that I need to replace the hub(s). Besides, bearings are a PITA, so I would be happy to...
  18. Silicone or rubber?

    One of the outcomes of some recent troubleshooting is that it may be a good idea to relocate my MAP. No big deal, but in looking around my engine bay, I think it is finally time to do another project that I've been sitting on and replace/clean-up my vacuum lines. Is it with spending the extra...
  19. Hesitation at high RPM's - all gears. w/logs. (RESOLVED)

    I've been chasing what I initially thought might be blowout at WOT. I was seeing a little bit of knock on some of my pulls, but it never seemed like something that would cause the sort of shuddering I was feeling at-speed. Well I was doing some long logs for SD VE table calibration and noticed...
  20. Knock, blowout, or maybe both... [moved to new hesitation thread]

    Moving this from the General forum since I'm starting to go down the rabbit hole a bit more...Seeing knock in 2nd. Ordinarily, one would expect this to be a fairly linear fix: reduce boost or reduce timing. Thing is, when I see the knock, I also feel a slight rumble... it almost feels like...
