  1. If it's anything like the coilovers quality, I'd pass on it
  2. 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.
  3. Ya, I'm gonna have to learn to weld and buy some kit to do so

    Ah farts, a new issue to fix. Revs hang now after blipping the throttle.
  5. Oh yeah, those clamp to the body of the rack and bolt to subframe. I can't clamp to the subframe though

    Fixed it. Ultimately, I wasted a bunch of time. Problem #1 injector was dead/stuck open Problem #2 spark plugs bad (even though they sparked and I cleaned them up? Fix #1 - - 2x m6x25 bolts for top hat, - 2x m6x12 spacers2 - 2x Lucas INJ-01D142B (850cc trilogy branded) Fix #2 - New NGK 5553 plugs Not the problem/time wasters for me - adjusting mechanical lifters -checking timing visually -fuel pump -compression test -igniters -gnition coil -coolant temp sensor -plug wires -cap/rotor -hussin' n cussin'
  7. Trust, but verify. Make sure it's bad before throwing money at it
  8. I don't know the tubing wall thickness, at least not without drilling it to take a measurement.
  9. Had a car once that died when turning left. Was fuel pump ground.

    Lol. She won't get involved in it. Wants it running, wants it gone, gives me little spare time.

    I've manually set timing according to FSM, mechanically. I need to find a helper (hard to do these days) for trying to do it with a light while it won't start.

    Yep, checked one at a time with my phone recording into the TB while cranking. I pulled the plugs and they are kind of wet. I'll replace them and see if it helps in a few days when they arrive. while they are out, did a quick compression test and got 130-135 in each cylinder. Coolant test sensor tests good. After cranking a while it will almost start. Frustrating... Wife is on my butt to get it started and sell this one along with my bike to cover her taxes O.o
  13. Breaking news Mitsubishi will be trying to reboot their brand by bringing back the starion and 3000gt as a pickup and minivan, respectively

    Pretty sure. Part number comes up as 850cc/min. I have tried ether.
  15. Kind of at a loss here. She was running then died. I have spark, plugs look good. I have fuel, had too much due to a stuck/dead injector. Replaced with trilogy injectors. I see a spray during crank. Pulled VC, ensured the ping was almost to 12:00, timing mark on 0 and re-stabbed the dist. It will crank, almost catch (rarely) then crank some more. Tried adding/removing timing. Looking for ideas, at a loss.
  16. Then the coils in the injectors work! Now that we know the injectors are good electronically, follow the additional suggestions from the thread
  17. Check each injectors resistance to make sure they are within spec. I think it was 2-3 ohms
  18. Yes, I'm buying used. I received the injectors much faster than anticipated. I will just measure and order some spacers and buy some bolts
  19. Got some of these old injectors and was wondering if anyone happened to know the spacer size required for these so I can get spacers and bolts before the injectors arrive

    Wtb 86 injector

    not ideal, but I found some of those old trilogy injectors from gregslist. Still would rather OEM.
  21. Long shot, but I need an injector for an 86. I need only one but if anyone has 2 I'll take 2
  22. Care to share the details on this for those of us that don't trust Meta/Facebook
  23. Sweet. I have their subframe, but I'm kind of f'ed because now I need to figure out mounting for a steering rack or factory gearbox.
