In Topic: Any battery recommendations?

Yesterday, 06:50 AM

If you go to AutoZone or Advance they will show a Honda size batter as what's required for the Conquest. I had issues with sluggish cranking on a new battery they had sold me. It tested good but didn't have enough amperage to get the motor to turn fast enough.

I ended up swapping out with a larger battery that had 1000 CCA and never looked back. I used that battery for almost 4 years.

Definitely do-able but despite the great promise Mitsubishi showed, they stuck with TBI on this one.  Hardest thing to find was the cast aluminum OVCP.

I'm sure a TBI megasquirt setup would work just fine. Are you trying to keep a 100% factory type setup?

I have everything needed for this swap.  Finding all the small parts, wiring harness, ecu, and such is going to be the hard part.  The Starion specifics are even harder to find.  I've been collecting parts for years and luckily got the heavy stuff while there was still shipping via slowboat.  I have several posts on here about it, search sirius dash.


I would just run a stand alone system. It may not be O.E. but having data logging plus tuning ability would optimize the car in the long run. Also I'm fairly certain most DSM connectors are just about the same for each generation. Most of the factory Starion Conquest connectors should work.

TPS needs to be relearned. There is a way to do it without the scan tool but it is a pain. I would find someone with a Snap On Scanner or even the dealer to have them calibrate the throttle. That is a must for engine or throttle replacement.

Also is the CEL on? If so have you pulled any codes?
