Knowledgable reputable starquestors scattered all about the country, that could sort u out. Research

Otherwise, you need to find a mechanic that worked with these cars back in the 80s when they were new. An older Mitsu or Chrysler mechanic. Like was said already, anybody else is going to screw it up b/c the knowledge base just isn't there anymore. It's tech from an era long gone, and it's a different animal than the muscle car era, so even that knowledge doesn't transfer well. Tom is right though ... the whole motor and fuel system probably needs to be done over in order for it to be done right.

Thanks for input. Yeah, time is something I am short on anymore. Used to live in the garage. 15 to 18 hours a day on the weekends. Now, cant do it. Yeah, I know Dad. Good guy and bought many a part off of him back many a year ago. I have boxes of performance parts up in the barn that I never got onto my car. That was almost 20 years ago. I rebuilt this motor I believe 2 times cant remember and have had some mods done to it and upgraded turbo and done some porting on it. I used to work on this car a lot. A lot of good and bad times with it but always kept it in the end when about 3head gaskets
went. I gave up and parked it for awhile. I do have a aftermarket head on it. Bear head. I did talk to dad about this problem last time it happened and think it was 15 to 18 yrs ago and he was the only one that kinda knows what it probably is. I cant remember exactly as to long ago but have it written down somewhere that he told me back in the one corner of the head is where I have to grind it down or do something very unique to this head as he has seen it before and dealt with it. Its complicated. I do remember that. Anyways, I live near the Carlisle Fairgrounds about 15 miles from there south. Right up from York, PA. and West of Harrisburg about 15 miles. There is a tuner shop right down here on Rt. 15 right outside of Dillsburg, but went there many years ago to have some exhaust done and he messed it up and had him redo it or take off what I gave him cant remember but we did not get along after I told him and I showed him with my car up on his rack. Believe he had it hanging down to low or was rubbing something on my car and was rattling and brough it back to him and he argued with me it was ok. DMS or something he calls his shop. Not sure. I don't think they would know much about conquest. he is into modern stuff but said he worked on a few. Now that was 18years ago.

Keeping your cooling system in top cond is also a big factor so thing dont end up warping.

There is a garage that specializes in Mitsubishi's in Cove Gap, PA which is on Rt 16 right at the base of the mountain just past Mercersburg. I have no clue the name of the shop or anything, they don't have a sign nor does it even appear on Google Maps. I've tried stopping in a few times when passing, for they have 4-5 conquests in their lot, but they were never there. So it's a major long shot, but if you happened to be in that area, it might be worth a try.

Felpro made 2 different head gaskets for our engine
Ms9116pt is the better one and everyone should use instead of the older version
I dont remember that older number but the gasket looks all blue similar to sb Chevy gasket. Or just like the intake manifold gasket
The newer one is thicker made with graffite material of some kind
Im no expert so I dont know all the facts but If you are using felpro then use the better one.
Also I am in Ohio and own a really crappy rusted out conquest that should be junked but runs really good and all the drivetrain is excellent. If you can get me your car.... and some time. I will guarantee it will run.
