  1. FS: PA, 92 GVR4, 637/1000, 96k miles, RUST FREE $4.5k

    This looks like a fantastic VR4 I'd buy it if I didn't already have one. Not every day you get to buy a car from a celebrity. ;-) GLWS
  2. DynastyLCD

    DynastyLCD is a stand up community member.Bought a fantastic gas tank off DynastyLCD. I hit a rough patch with money, he could have sold to someone else, but he didn't. He didn't have to do that.Not only will 1933 be back on the road sooner but I won't have to cut up a car that is very...
  3. galant vr4 RS

    fleabay super 16g gt or whatever it's called is already milled to spec of a ported 7cm housing. You could use the housing of that. I bought my vr4 with an Ebay turbo on there and in 2 years I have not had one problem. That being said...I have an MHI turbo waiting to go on as we speak, so take...
  4. galant vr4 RS

    Hey Phil, Did that plan to have Every Evo generation at the 4 cyl & Rotary nationals ever pan out? If so, got Pics?
  5. galant vr4 RS

    You can use the 14b housing. You'll spool a bit faster, however the trade off is that you will loose some pull on the top end. If I were you I'd slap that thing together to get going but I would keep my eye out for a stronger 7cm housing.If you need assistance with getting it
  6. galant vr4 RS

    Older Evo III b16g's had a 6cm housing. They now have 7 cm housings.
  7. FS: 96 Talon TSi AWD $6000, NH

    Intrested....Better shot of the headlights?Oh...Nice car too!
  8. finally boosted over 5200rpm

    x2 I hate Toyota's more than you can imagine. This is one of the best sounding cars in the world!
  9. motor pull

    I'll put in another vote for remove hood, axles, transfer case, transmission. Do a bit of extra work, make the overall job easier on yourself.
  10. ProSport boost gauge issue?

    Intresting. I use prosport gauges. I have a mechanical 30/30 boost gauge and an oil pressure gauge. I Had them in 1933 for 2 years with no issues.I personally have never been a fan of electronic boost gauges. I guess it could be the sending unit..or the gauge, without spares to swap out it's...
  11. finally boosted over 5200rpm

    Nice congrats. I love the feeling of accomplishment you get after figuring out a difficult issue and successfully fixing it!
  12. Really annoyed by brake noise!!

    Sounds like your rotors are warped. Bad rotors will wear your pads much faster. I'd look into getting some replacments even if they are just stockers for now. Not sure if you could have the powerstop's turned but that might be an option as well.
  13. ProSport boost gauge issue?

    Got a mechanical you can throw in just to see if it's the gauge? Otherwise I'd start looking for a vaccum leak (a small one). You might want to get out the soap and water for this one if you can't hear it.
  14. ProSport boost gauge issue?

    Aftermarket FPR? Do you have the input to the solenoid still hooked up with the output going nowhere by any chance? If that was the case the open solenoid could cause a small vaccum leak leading to this condition but not bad enough of a leak to cause any real operational issues.
  15. Really annoyed by brake noise!!

    This is hard to diagnose w/o really hearing the noise. Do you still have rusty old heat shields? Are the brakes working ok other than the noise? Feel anything in the wheel as you brake..(ie. Vibrations, Pulling to one side or the other. These aren't cheapie chinese ebay rotors are they? If you...
  16. P/S switch/sensor on top of resevior cap

    If you go with a 1g setup you have to ditch the dummy light.
  17. ProSport boost gauge issue?

    Vaccum leak. What are you using for a source?
  18. Tre

    Make the jump to link if you can. You won't regret it.
  19. Dear new/prospective owners

    This is an excellent post...because race car.Seriously, though. Nice post. I think you said what many were thinking but vocalized it very well, in a helpful and informative manner.
  20. 19th Annual DSM Shootout Aug 20-21 2011 Norwalk, Ohio

    You missed an angle :P
  21. Car Shaking

    I'll have to try that balancing. Calipers and rotors are ok. Car started in with a bad fuel leak at the tank so it's going to be down for the season while I fab up a fuel cell install.
  22. 1g dsm ecu in jdm vr-4 rs

    Oh. I don't see why you wouldn't go for it then. You will need to swap the guts of the dsm ecu into the gvr4 case for mounting.
  23. t/e/l radio harness splice to gvr4

    Oh, so you are trying to put the stock harness back into the car?click
  24. 1g dsm ecu in jdm vr-4 rs

    DSM's have 450cc injectors stock. What's your setup like? You're going to need some way to tune for fuel.
  25. Rear brake lines

    Quoting Adorsey: I remember reading a thread on someone having trouble with their instalation of the prebent lines. So you might just want to make sure you can do it without having to drop your front sub. If its not coming from the dealer I dought they would be anywhere else. My best advice...
  26. Rear brake lines

    No, It's the hard lines.
  27. Rear brake lines

    Quoting 672VR4: i would pick up some stainless steel lines. The ones from 1g dsms work with the galant. The previous owner had 1g lines on my old vr4 and all worked fine, should be the same set up. Not sure if there is a difference between the 90-91 and 92-94 dsms but i would assume 92-94...
  28. near-future GVR-4 owner....

    You're welcome.The hard rear brake lines rotted in winter storage and I haven't driven it all season because I can't fix them myself and they are too deformed to send off to classic tube to clone. I posted a wtb here but have no leads. Might have to bring it to a shop.I really do still...
  29. near-future GVR-4 owner....

    The 1g prop valve is fine and the lines are a direct fit. n/a and turbo non abs valve is the same part. The weight on the cars is close and so is the bias. If you are that concerned about the bias you can find a prop valve from a non turbo galant in the same body style, the DSM valves are much...
  30. Need some motivation...

    Ok I can play this game:In the past year I have owned my gvr4:Last Season:used throttle body(idle surge got so bad car would not stay running, tried to back out stripped biss with jb weld and screwdriver, couldn't)New clutch/Flywheel (PO didn't know much, bought a chinabay 16g...
  31. Rear brake lines

    Does anyone have a source for these prebent? I haven't started making my own yet...I really don't want to...I'm starting to think about just taking it to a shop but I don't really want to do that.
  32. Megasquirt EMS

    It would be the same as a 1g...but why not just get link?You can get a used copy of v2 for the same price as Megasquirt these days. It should have more than enough function for a beginner. You always have the option to upgrade to v3 later when you have the funds. It's very capable and much...
  33. Rear brake lines

    I live in new england. Thankfully my vr4 is not swiss cheese but my rear hard lines are. I patched a small section with compression fittings to get to an event last year. Now I want to fix it right. Can I buy prebent lines from the dealer? I couldn't find the rears in caps. Only the front. If...

  35. MBC question/ opinions

    It should be mentioned that for reliabilty and accuracy I would go with a ball and spring type MBC.That being said I have never heard of, seen or used a LSP. I would trust the members here if they say it's good.I have a Hallman pro, No complaints. It's a well known spring type MBC...
  36. Will a #501 MAS choke a Evo 3 Big 16g

    Thanks for that important peice of information Jeff.
  37. Will a #501 MAS choke a Evo 3 Big 16g

    Wow. That is something I had never considered. Looks like she will be all set. Shes got 650's and a chip with AFC to fine tune. I've got link and 880's.
  38. Will a #501 MAS choke a Evo 3 Big 16g

    Thanks everyone for your input. All 3 of the mas in question (609,399,489) are all 240 liter sensors. That's 509 CFM for you non engineering minded types. The difference between the three is how much psi drop you get across the sensor, which is what I think Jeff was getting at. Lets take...
  39. Will a #501 MAS choke a Evo 3 Big 16g

    ok. It's a 3kGT vr4 mas. I am having issues finding the flow specs now.
  40. Will a #501 MAS choke a Evo 3 Big 16g

    Thanks but I am not sure how horsepower comes into factor in reguards to air flow rates. The problem may be null anyways because when I accually got home to look at her mas it says 165. I am not even sure what that is..time for more research.
  41. Will a #501 MAS choke a Evo 3 Big 16g

    I forgot to mention the reason the 501 mas came up in discussion is because of it's .78 psi loss over the 2g's almost full pound of boost, even though it flows slightly less.
  42. Will a #501 MAS choke a Evo 3 Big 16g

    My girlfriend and I are each building b16g cars. This came up in discussion today and I thought I would see what you guys thought. A 501 mas is rated at 210 liters/second, converts to 445 cfm. I figure the b16g's efficiency is exactly that...445 cfm. Would a 501 mas get overrun? I think there...
  43. to those with prosport gauges

    That's a good point. By the time I was looking they had already stopped making the old style ones. Hence the Prosport gauges.
  44. good lowering springs???????

    Quoting turbofonz: If you wanna buy mine let me know.I sent you a pm.
  45. to those with prosport gauges

    I will 'doarn my flame suit for this...I have the same gauges and tried to come off the fuse panel for the switch. I had intermittent issues like you all have described with changing colors.I was able to get it to work correctly but you won't like the solution.I had to run a wire out...

    Shipped my item right away. One of the few people who has ever cared to include a tracking number. Way to go we need more like you!
  47. good lowering springs???????

    Quoting turbofonz: Evo8 struts w/ Tein Stechs in the front, H&R and GR-2's still in the rear. Waiting to get the rear Evo's welded up so I can put them on.Cool, alot of people have had good luck with that setup. I have agx's now. I think I am going to add h&r springs when I do my 5 lug/4...
  48. Connecticut people

    Quoting red90awd: I don't mean to site posture, but CCDSM does meets every month (Mods, please remove as necessary, I mean no disrespect). However, i believe you used to be on the site because your name seems familiar to me. I'm relatively new to the site, but Im sure it is hard to have any...
  49. good lowering springs???????

    Quoting turbofonz: I have H&R's on my car, and it's not low enough for my (personal) taste.Did you change your setup? When I saw you 2 weeks ago it looked really low.
  50. gvr4+DSMLINK
