Oh my. This car is stupid fast compared to what it was before. I spent nearly all weekend doing the tedious stuff (putting the interior back together, putting body parts back on, etc.) all in an effort to get the car out sunday night so i could attend one of the "unauthorized" car shows here in the Denver area. On the way down there i embarassed a Camaro that had a 2006 LS6 Corvette engine swapped in, which was fun, and my friend's fully built B16 Civic (which runs 17 lbs.) couldn't keep up with me, which is nice. I ran into George Billings at the show also, it's nice when you can finally put a face to the name. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted, knowing that it has finally gone out and ran and it seemed to love every minute of it.

Some other good things to mention: my Optima lived , the WOT air/fuel ratio registers 11.0:1, and i have yet to get a check engine light.

Some points of concern: the transmission makes a speed dependant clunk clunk clunk while moving in reverse only, but it is perfectly fine while moving forward and while shifting between gears. And i need to figure out why my boost controller isn't working. I had it turned off, which should cause it to allow the wastegate spring to be the only device controlling boost. The wastegate spring is supposed to be .7 bar (10.15 psi), but the car pulls all the way to 25 lbs. no problem.

I drove the car down to Colorado Springs so Jack could have a listen at my reverse noise in the transmission. He is confident that there is something wrong with the reverse idler gear. I have to say that he is a class act. He offered to keep the car, r+r the trans, fix the trans, and give it back all at no cost. I declined, however, as I would feel bad making him pull it when he never installed the trans in the first place. So he offered to build me an identical unit and I will do an exchange here in a couple weeks.

Catastrophic failure. Well maybe not catastrophic, but failure none-theless. Will update when more information comes available.

Glad you got it home last night. Once you figure it out give me a call to let me know what you found. It is the same thing I have a problem with.

So I drove the 65 miles or so to go help out Diego in Greeley. The car drove real nice the whole way up there, never even made me think something would be wrong. I chit-chatted Diego for a few minutes and then we went to get into my car so I could show off a bit and we could get food also. The car didn't want to go into gear, so we took his roommate's RX-7 instead. After coming back and working on his car, the time came for me to try and get this thing home. I started it in gear, and the clutch was dragging enough that the car backed itself out even though my foot was buried to the floor on the clutch. I shoved it out of gear and the car died. I re-started it, and tried to put it in first. It went right in, then into second, third, fourth, fifth and reverse with absolutely no grind or "block out", and it wasnt making any noise. I tried driving away, made it about 400 feet, and then I heard the worst sound I think I've ever heard from any of my Mitsubishi's. It was like 6000 school teachers dragging their fingernails across a chalkboard all at once. So I called for rescue in the form of a Powerstroke and a trailer.

After disassembly, here's what I found.















On a positive, I snapped a couple of pics of my custom gauge pod for your veiwing pleasure. The bottom panel is still in the works, the guy that built it just ran out of the glue he uses for attaching the vinyl the the MDF board.

Why am I not surprised your ACT took a crap. Never heard though of the PP going bad...just their discs which happened to me.

Whats your next clutch setup in mind?

My act 3200 pp did the same thing about 6 months ago. That is what caused me to tear the car apart. Drove to work great, then pushed in the clutch to start it and you could feel something in the pedal and no gears. I switched the master and slave, and when I got down to do the slave, those damn teeth were in the bottom of the bellhousing. I thought it was a common problem for the act clutches?



3 galants in driveway, none on the street, what the hell am I doing wrong here?

Terry: yes this is an ACT 2600, Diego remembered correctly.

Dlesser: unfortunately I can't blame myself for this one. The bolts were all tight, all there, so I don't really know the "how and why" on this one.

4grim: I haven't thought about what clutch to use on this go around. Got a suggestion?

ACT at its best.

Where is the person that is on this board that used to work for ACT and always said there were great clutches. Care to chime in on this one?

I'm not putting a Centerforce in it. I have seen bone stock 4g63t powered cars kill Centerforce clutches in only a few months.

Daryl was the guy that worked for ACT. Whenever a member had a problem he usually tried to help them out. But last I heard he no longer worked for ACT.
