Iceman, I've been considering going. I doubt the car will be ready, but we shall see.

Getting there. Brakes are done, not one inch of original line left in the car.

Oh, and thank you to GSTwithPSI for the honorable mention above.

New goodies are going on 555/1000 in a couple of weeks.




Yeah, well some of us whore our cars out too much, and others not enough. You and Sluggs both need to get out of the latter category, IMO.







Well, my car is STUCK in its garage bay currently because my parents moved up here from NV recently and their giant travel trailer is parked in front of my 3rd bay.
Oh well. Keeps me from taking it out and beating on it. It's just waiting for the new stuff to get here so i can put it on.

I am about to install some Technafit brake lines just as you have pictured, but for a different chassis (same connections minus the 1/8x27NPT fitting on the Wilwood caliper).

Yohler, questions for you.

How did you get the technafit fittings to mate into the holes on the metal tab at the body and on the strut bracketry where they are held in with the horse shoe clips?

Did you grind down the tabs that provide the 2x extra girth for the fitting to keep from rotating once inserted into the hole?

Reason I ask, is because the factory style horshoes have too small of an internal diameter/U-shape to fit the Technafit lines.

Also, the fittings won't fully seat into the tabs because they are physically wider in the machined channel than stock lines fittings. (Horseshoe grooves).

If you could elaborate, I would greatly appreciate it.

Ninja edit before my thoughts even had me pressing the Add Reply button; parts answer my own question.

Are these the horseshoe clips you ordered, that fit all of their end fittings that a Mitsubishi would use?

The lines are from JNZ tuning, everything bolted right in without any fuss, retainer clips and all (which came with the lines). click

Spent a little time in the garage. Brakes have been bled, clutch has been bled. Also got the battery in the car at the expense of having to start removing the 4ws and nobody was lying when they called that the messiest job ever.

That it is for sure. I kinda cheated on mine. I left the HP lines on the rack. I just drained the system for a couple days, left some metal line after the rubber flex fitting, crushed them and welded them shut. They hold and don't leak with the PS filled and working and it helped me avoid messing with the rack to remove the lines.

That would be nice if I had a welder. Not there yet so I went with some AN adapters with caps. Then hopefully I can take this thing for a cruise.

Well not much work on the turd the last several weeks, just been too busy and I hope to get back at it in the next few days. I got the ECU back from ECM Tuning and she's all repaired, chipped, and ready to go along with a few other small parts. There will be a good amount to update over the next few weeks if all goes according to plan and I stop working like they own me.

Anyone ever have issues with DSM graveyard? bought a DSM power steering reservoir from them two weeks ago since it was $10, and other than an order confirmation I've got nothing to show for it. Also, anyone ever use a freeze plug to cover the hole in the diff left from removing the pump? Seems to be popular way for the 3S guys to do it and I'm not ready to throw the 4 bolt in there at this point.

No pics today, but she's alive. ECM Link is in and going, C&M turbo back exhaust is on, and all of the heinous work with removing the 4WS is done. While it doesn't sound like much it's definitely a milestone for me because of how much time it took to get all of that completed.

She started up on the first try no problem after sitting for 3 months and the odyssey battery turned the car over no issues, which I was concerned about. Starting her for the first time in months revealed a leaky heater core hose and I'll have to order those. I was monitoring the coolant temp in link and it got to around 200* and the radiator fan never kicked on. Did I not give it enough time or should it have started by that point?

I am not speaking from experience here, but I believe the data PID you see in ECMlink is ECT which remains higher temp than what the radiator fan switch in the radiator measures to turn on (around 185). Condenser fan thermo switch is 212.



How GVR4 people enjoy their cars? Same as you, ya dingus, first we turn the key, then we get the jack stands...
