  1. Today
  2. Look for a shop in your area that restores fuel tanks.
  3. rough with no info.but check fuel pressure possible low but when vacuum reference increases fuel psi it drives ok.also make sure primary and secondary injectors are hooked up properly
  4. I've been around a while like many people here and I don't know of anyone making or adapting a different gas tank for the Starquest - short of having one custom made. Your best bet, easiest, and cheapest is by far to work with Steve ^^^^. He'll get you hooked up with what you need. I would not put a questionable tank back on your car and try to make it work - your asking for trouble.
  5. Yesterday
  6. Hi Jay, I have excellent clean OEM gas tanks in stock. Shoot me a message if you’d like to discuss, or you can text/call me as well. Steve 540-379-8nine5won
  7. If it's anything like the coilovers quality, I'd pass on it
  8. This doesn't have the Technica package, but may be a starting point for you? https://www.ebay.com/itm/266760416377?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=mX-ZRgC0TGC&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=EheusCIJRmC&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Seems to be in decent shape? EDIT: Sorry, I just saw you said Starion. I thought you were good with either.
  9. It looks like Legion Elite Motorsports makes one out of aluminum. I guess he is redesigning the tank now and should have one available in a few months. I guess I'll clean the rust out of mine for now and try and get the car running.
  10. Last week
  11. HI Guys, The 88 Starion I acquired from a recking yard has sat for many number of years. Pulled off the gas tank and discovered it is rusted out. Are there any aftermarket gas tank options that won't require a ton of modifications? injectors being cleaned and flowed. New fuel lines, pump, filters, etc ordered from MKS.
  12. Curious if anyone one has any idea at 2000-3000 rpm in any gear as soon as I hit 0 psi I get popping and the car falls on its face. If I get to 3000 rpm while in vacuum, she runs fine in positive boost pressure.
  13. So now that I've been through the NDD ringer, but got my money back, this is my plan: I have a StarQuest cross member and an S13 cross member here. I am working with a local shop that does only tube work and has done Nissan high performance cars. He is going to make both Silvia and Star quest tube cross members that take an S13 rack and pinion. Nissan 240 SX ( S14) knuckles (God Speed SK-001-BLACK), hubs and lower control arms (God Speed AK-084 ). *GOD SPEED GSP FIT 240SX S14 KA24 SR20 FRONT ANTI SWAY BAR KIT * 2005 Cadillac CTSV front brakes - calipers and rotors *S13 HICAS rack and ends - 2.5 turns lock, to lock. *2013 Cadillac ATS steering shaft and u-joint * custom tubular cross member that moves the lower control arm mount points to match the S14 rack. (can mod a factory one, don't have to do a rack, either) *TEIN Super Nissan Silvia S14 Coilover Front Kit *Conquest upper camber plate, that takes an S13/S14 coil over. I have it all here. Of course, I am also going L33, with a turbo for 8 psi and T56....
  14. This really can't be that tough to make something that is less ugly, stronger and lighter. My only thought is that NDD is priced too cheap and he can't make them for what he sells them for. I also wonder what engineering he's done. That lower control arm mount sees a lot of force. Doing FEA now on it. I have a StarQuest cross member and an S13 cross member here.

  15. They are getting very hard to find for most went to the yards and are long crushed. I've always been a fan of the 83-85 cars. I like the look, especially without the rear spoiler that was added to the flatbodies in 86. My first car was an 84 starion es and I've been searching for a clone of it for 30 years. Have had a few opportunities for ones in a different color though, but even that was 15+ years back. I chuckle how one of the requirements is the chime feature. I turned that off after the first drive in my 84 and it never was switched back on during my ownership. BTW: the ES models have the Velnas computer which is far cooler than both the chime or the digital dash, in my opinion. (well...84 and 85 and in the starion variant only) Anyways, good luck with the search and sorry to clutter the thread!
  16. Just out of curiosity i sent an email to them a week ago asking how long the wait times were for the subframes, havent received a response yet.
  17. I am also speaking with someone more local to me, to build these. Going to model up both the S13/14 cross members and our StarQuest ones.
  18. That is one item I would not learn to weld on... Use a certified welder, that can do multi-position, please?
  19. The extension shaft cup splines, and the pinion coupler spline mesh together very precisly when they don't have wear. I pulled them out of my 88 140k miles on it, that was never beat on, and there is zero play.
  20. welcome to the family.hope your dad pulls through.starquestparts.net,mks,dad,motocam are the places to go for parts.great companies.great people.
  21. I want to get it running and just have a fun weekend car. I want to restore it to original color. The paint is a little faded. It's in storage right now and I gotta get a trailer to get it. Once I do I'll definitely post pictures. The last I remembered the interior was pretty good for an over 30 year old car. I want to do minor mods to it, but you know how that goes,.once you start it's hard to stop. Last I check it runs but would die once you step on the gas and the frame has some rust on it being in Indiana. The big thing is finishing what my dad started and just remembering the good times. He was a Mopar guy and we started with a 75 dart him and I. This was another gem for him to try redoing. Shoot the man loved this era. He drove an 87 ram/raider truck. Thanks for.any help y'all can give
  22. Welcome newguy! When you say you are restoring what is the goal? Just get it running well then minor mods? Does it run now? Paint job? Or rust repair ... interior isn't so good? Pictures please 😎 We are here to help and advise as best we can
  23. It's a red conquest. It's been sitting for a couple of years due to my dad dealing with cancer. What are common problems areas for these cars? It' s only had basic maintenance done as for the restoration. I'm thinking of keeping it stock mostly but with some modern upgrades such as suspension, interior,and maybe some engine mods. Nothing too crazy. I appreciate the warm welcome and will update once I tear into it
  24. Tell us about your 87. What color? What state of restoration. What are your most immediate questions? Welcome ... you're at the right place.
  25. Awesome thanks for the welcome and I will definitely check out the website

  27. Hi everybody. I just inherited an 87 tsi from my father and going to finish restoring. Any advice for me? I was wondering where's the best place for parts and the typical problem areas regarding these cars. I love the styling of these cars and the rarity of them. I've always wanted a cool 80s car and this fits the bill. Thanks for any advice in advance and can't wait to talk about my progress.
  28. Hello, looking for a 1983, 1984, or 1985 Starion 5 speed, with a music box & digital dash (preferred). Location: East of the rockies ideal, but willing to look at anything in CONUS or ontario. Relatively new to the platform so I'm trying to get some ideas on prices. There was an 83, 5spd, digital project & parts car that sold a couple weeks back for 3500, thats all I have for reference atm. Not looking for a nice, historic, enclosed trailer show car. Project condition, able to run onto a trailer, or...? Color doesn't matter, I can handle some rust/panel rot too, as long as the body is drivable without welding. With a digital dash, I'm fine with a roller too. Also, from my limited understanding, all the early Starquests play a little tune when you open the door, but the later ones only do with a digital dash? If the early ones all do not, the music box is a corequisite. Thank you
