Hello all, Ive decided to share some of my progress on my project. Its going to be a slow restoration but hopefully i dont take to long to start to enjoy the starquest.

This is how the starion stood when i got it home after purchasing it back in September 2013.

I then went and changed the turbo xs bov for a stock evo8 bov i had laying around. I swaped out the plugs and wires for ngk components. The MAP sensor was held together with rtv and had no MAF. It drove fine on the 20min drive home. I went ahead and got a 1g Maf, a not held by rtv Map sensor. Did boost leak test. But now with the Maf installed, it would not rev beyond 4k. Did some more looking and found a cracked manifold.

After finding that out i took a break from it and waited out the winter.

As of now this is how it sits. Im waiting on exhaust gaskets. I also gutted the cat. But im thinking i just have gotten a bigger full exhaust. The downpipe is a 2.5 in and bolts to a 2in cat back. I traded my OVCP for a 86 style OVCP but i regret doing it. I just should have got a bung installed for the IAT. The new pipe has the bung but it was to long and had to cut it. Plus its a 2 1/4 pipe while my old one was a 2.5in. O well.

Well today I got the car all put back together. The downpipe and B pipe looks to be T.E.P pieces. I installed a aem wideband. Car didn't have a MAF when I got it so I wired in a 1g MAF. Started it up and with MAF connected it runs extremely lean and does not like to idle. Without it connected it runs extremely rich and will idle. So this weekend I will be taking apart the throttle body for a rebuild.

I thought I had a bad alternator but it turned out to be the oem charging harness. I used 8ga OFC wire. But I didn't take a pic of the finished product.

I could not set the base timing and it turned out the cam was off so I redid the cam timing.

Was having overheating issues. OEM radiator was rusted from the inside, and pulled out the ac component's.

Long time from updating. I had a stumble,jerk at 3.5k rpm, truned out to be a bad vac advance. Got it switched out and all is good at 3.5k but i feel it a sluggish at higher rpm. I think it has something to do with the knock box as my timing at idle is erratic. Going to look into it.

For now here is some pics.

I would expect to have it stumble before 35K revs!  :blink:

I had a new distributor when I bought my car and still found the pick up coil wires arcing inside the distributor.

Came across a said to be Jolyrgr exhaust setup. Has two interchangeable ends. One 2.5 and a 3 inch tail section. But its a little to loud for my taste so going to put a muffler on it.

Long time from any updates. I have been fighting a max lean idle issue. Tried trilogy injectors, oem cleaned injectors, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, new walbro 255 pump, 1g maf, oem maf, tons of boost leak test, and nothing, still lean. Was very, very frustrated. I did some research and saw in Professor quest post, TPS adjust the air/fuel ratio. Even thou i could set the voltage at .49, I went ahead and did the ohm and sweep test. ZERO ohms and sweep test needle on meter went straight to zero with out touching the throttle. So I ordered the mazda tps kit, hoping that cures my issue. Fingers crossed.
