I'm selling this car for a local Las Vegas member who's owned it for a few years but he's not as well versed in the mechanical side of it. I've done a lot of recent work and gone over every detail on this car to put together the below mod list. I can say that this car is amazingly well put together with several rare parts and a recent paint job that is very nice. The interior is in great shape except for some wear on the front seats in the usual places. Pics and videos to come later. PM me if interested. Please don't waste my time and I won't waste yours. This car is beautiful to look at and to drive. One test drive and you'll fall in love. Looking for $9000 OBO.

Here's a mod list:

Engine:
  • Stock pistons G54B turbo engine with jet valve eliminator kit installed
  • Mechanical rockers installed - Rebuilt the assembly using the original cam towers with mechanical rockers and shafts and adjusted to .006.
  • Power steering pump rebuilt within last year. Works perfectly with no noise or leaks
  • Stedebani short throw shifter – transmission shifts perfectly with no grinding or popping out of gear
  • Newly replaced rubber transmission mount within last year
  • Magna intake manifold (MPI Conversion) – custom modified for RWD from Australian Mitsubishi Magna car
  • 65mm ford throttle body
  • 65lb injectors x4
  • *DM aftermarket intercooler upgrade (very thick core)
  • Factory radiator with 2 aftermarket fans mounted.
  • Custom aluminum intercooler hardpipes
  • Ebay knockoff greddy type RS BOV - leak tested and hold perfectly
  • Fuel Injection Pros (FIP) FC1S fuel control only ECU running megasquirt 1 main board. Firmware upgraded to MSnS Extra to allow autotune and various other functions not included in the base FC1S firmware.
  • AEM UEGO wideband o2 sensor and gauge
  • Mitsubishi TD05 18g turbocharger – real MHI, not china made, and a recent rebuild with no shaft play
  • Factory turbo manifold with no cracks or warping
  • Custom 3 inch exhaust from downpipe back – Sounds great! Deep tone not rice at all
  • Trilogy Turbos brand 2.5 inch step to 3 inch downpipe with flex section
  • Upgraded braided stainless turbo oil feed and coolant lines
  • MSD Blaster 2 coil
  • NGK spark plugs within the last 1k miles
  • NGK blue plug wires
  • Greddy profec boost controller – boost currently set to 15 psi on wastegate spring. Controller not set to add any boost (~$400 alone)
  • New XTR brand 6 puck sprung clutch less than 1k miles ago – holds all of the power and still has a stock like pedal feel.Rear main seal replaced at same time as clutch was changed
  • Oil catch can installed to replace factory breather system
  • Vacuum advance on distributor replaced 2 years ago along with cap and rotor
  • Derale adjustable fan controller for both engine side puller fans – Comes on when engine at ~180 degrees
  • A/C components present but not currently working. Heater works. HVAC controls relocated to glove box.
  • Brand new battery terminals with quick disconnect on negative side for extended sitting. There’s no battery drain issues but the car doesn’t get driven often and sits in a garage so it is usually disconnected
Body:
  • Freshly repainted a year ago factory color - Palermo Grey
  • Motocam 360 hood struts to replace factory hood prop rod
  • Metal radiator air diversion panel
  • Power seat belts work flawlessly and the tracks have been recently lubricated
  • Polished SHP (Super handling package OEM option) front 8” wide and rear 9” wide wheels
  • Tires are almost new and have a lot of grip
  • Stedebani black polyurethane control arm, differential, torque tube, and sway bar bushings front and rear
  • Fresh differential fluid and freshly replaced axle shaft seals
  • Fresh Dot 3 brake fluid flush and pressure bleed for both brakes and clutch within last 6 months
  • Still has factory ABS
  • Eibach performance springs front and rear
  • Stainless braided brake lines on all 4 corners
  • Front KYB blue shocks
  • Rear Mookeeh MK1 struts (new within last year)
  • Front Techno Toy Tuning (T3) adjustable camber plates - Haven't been available for a LONG time and they are very nice.
  • Rear adjustable camber plates
  • No visible rust – THIS IS A WEST COAST CAR WITH NO BODY ROT AT ALL
  • Aftermarket antenna – no power to mast because they break…
  • 3000GT radio with AUX and equalizer – OEM and plugs into factory harness
  • Kicker 5.25" front door speakers
  • Dark tint on rear windows
  • Black interior in good condition but the front seats could stand to be recovered/refoamed
  • Auto-power down driver side window switch (’89 model year only)
  • Window tracks recently lubed up and switches were cleaned so they go up and down very smoothly
  • AEM UEGO wideband gauge installed in custom gauge pod where HVAC module originally resided
  • Innovate MTX coolant temperature/battery voltage gauge

Issues:
  • A/C parts are of unknown condition and may just need a recharge or more work. Never bothered to investigate but I believe all necessary parts are present. Heater and blower motor work fine.
  • Heater blower motor foot/face actuator is stuck causing most HVAC air to be blown at feet – This is a common issue because of the design. Never bothered to fix. Face vents can still be switched to blow from outside air and that works fine for fresh air when not using the HVAC system.
  • Smokes a little bit between shifts - possibly valve stem seals
  • Factory coolant temperature gauge is not functional. Aftermarket coolant temp gauge is installed. Factory temperature gauge isn’t connected in engine bay because no space for factory sensor.

Just curious how the Eibach springs/MK1 struts work paired to each other?

I'll be able to let you know this summer.  That's the setup going on my car, well, at least the rear.  Fronts I went KYB.

Is that higher idle normal for an MPI setup?

No IAC valve. It's set to hot idle around 1150 RPM. This way on cold start it will start and stay running and warm up fully without having to touch the pedal. There's no problem with it idling that high at all.
