  1. My Starion is finished. Maybe dust it off. I will most likely take my Sand rail out that I converted into a Street rail and terrorize the neighbors☺️
  2. I am trying to delete a picture on here but do not see a option. Thanks, Bill
  3. You might want to retire at 62, because they might run out of money😏
  4. Let the members know how this worked out for you. It might help others.
  5. Here are some other things to think about. With aftermarket fuel injectors, most are Delphis, they need to see at least 44.5 to 45 psi fuel pressure. So. if you are using a fuel pressure gauge under the hood, you can adjust them to 45 psi at idle. Now comes in the fun part. With 45 psi at idle you will need to see 55 psi at 10 psi boost. So, if you do not have a electronic FPG in cabin how do you know what your FP is on boost? I learned this from a long time member on this site. You will need to run a hose from you FPR to a accurate FPG and tape it to the windshield. At WOT read what your FP is. If it is not at 55 psi, you have a problem with your FPR. Better safe than sorry when you turn the boost up.
  6. Personally I think that going from 7.5 to 10.5 psi boost on a 17c is a total waste of time. Why? a TDO5 17C is efficient from 10 to 20 psi boost, if your looking to go from 10 to 15 psi it might be worth it. Turbosmart makes a dual boost controller that can be activated with the flip of a switch in cabin. They come with complete instructions and run about $220.00 dollars. If you choose to go this way make sure you install a aftermarket boost gauge, as the stock one is known to be inaccurate.
  7. I hear about upping the boost, but I haven't heard a thing about modifications except for a 17c turbo?
  8. Here is my take...... Use the wideband to only monitor afr ratios. This means that you keep your stock O-2 hooked up. It might be a good idea to install a three wire O-2 sensor in place of your stock one. P.S. Make sure you mount the wideband O-2 Sensor at least 36 inches downstream from the turbo and at a 30 degree angle.
  9. MSD makes a inexpensive inline adjustable FPR . If I remember correctly the part number is 2222.
  10. That's Colorado. Do you know the city that has received the most snow fall per year on average over the past ten years in the United States????? Lets start a poll. I will go first. Polls close 5/25/22 so get your vote in. Sorry, no mail in, drop boxes or absentee ballots accepted ☺️ 1. Caliber 308- Denver ( i am most likely wrong)
  11. I installed a aftermarket 100 amp alternator years ago and my Starion still shuts off😉
  12. If you have a sunroof that might be one way for clearance. But. I doubt they would let you run like that. The only other way I can see is to lower the floor pan. And now were getting into screwing with the structure of the car itself. Not something that I would recommend. But it is your car to do with as you wish.
