Don't remember, but it wasn't any where near that new.

Had the 3-liter Mitsu V6, and was a commercial cargo type.

I paneled the back, put in shag carpeting, and a disco ball.

(half lies, was standard carpet, and no disco ball)

Used it to haul #1 son's race kart around the state.

 

As soon as #1 son stopped racing, traded that piece of utter shit for my first X8 in '93.

good thing you traded it in on the x8. it was a few short years away from blowing its trans.

It had already lost some sensor on it.

Never did find which one, didn't really care.

When it was started in the morning, it would run like shit.

But once it would warm up, if the battery was then disconnected, and let sit for a minute, it would run like a top as long as it didn't cool off.

If the battery wasn't disconnected, it wouldn't clear up.

 

Didn't bother telling the dealer what it took to make it run right.

They put it on the front row of their used lot.

The next day it had moved to the rear, and third day it was gone.

I hope they scrapped it.......

Purchased an OEM front lip since stock bumper is pretty gay and im too fucking broke to buy a whole kit. Too cheap to pay for paint, blasted a few different colours of spray paint and pearl clear on it and it came out close enough. Looks good for now.

 

 

Ride height to be fixed this winter. Currently my uprights hit my strut towers pretty bad, going to make a jig and shorten them.

Injectors are a little small.

I've got Bosch EV14 750s for the 7M.

any in specific Gordo?

 

I hear a lot of shit about injectors out there... particularly modified OE injectors sold by some people. historically I have used some no-name injectors and ID injectors and personally I couldn't tell any difference that some mention...

No.....

Do the research, as I did.

Mine are off the shelf Bosch for some Porsche turbo.

 

Why so big ?

I specifically didnt go with modded injectors just for that reason. They're gay. EV14s are arguably the best injectors on the market. Im not paying the same price for some old ass, poor performing, garage modded bullshit.. These injectors are off the shelf and can be purchased at nearly any autoparts store. 550s are large to support 400HP at OEM fuel pressure, which I dont intend on going over. I'd had thoughts about going larger for the sake of E85 upgrade in the future but decided against it, between the poor mileage, complete lack of support in my area, and the fact that I don't drive the car very often. I want to keep the car drivable and reliable, have no plans to go a lot higher or else ill start breaking more shit. The car also has a 4.1 RnP in it so it boogies pretty well.

 

 

The turbo is something I'm sort of testing for a company that is building a bunch of bolt-on solutions. More to come in the future.

 

Also just picked up some TRD swaybars from an Is300, those are going on this weekend since stock ones are limpdick.

not questioning your size or why you chose them.

 

I will be using something around your size (750's). 7m I believe are the same spec as 1j vvti too. going from memory, they are 11mm upper, Denso cushion and ~60mm long between centers.

Update:

 

Car was very knock limited, which seems to be common among VVTi engines (cyl head design? higher compression?) We had to run farely conservative timing, and it was killing power sorta. Installed water/meth kit, bumped timing up AND reduced boost. Full boost at 2700rpm.

 

Red is HP, blue is TQ. Numbers are true SAE, not some dynojet faggot bullshit. Car is mucho fasto. I may go up 1 size on the turbo and try to break 420 RWHP ish, or may just install cams. Or both. I dont know. $$$$$ choo choo
