n00b introduction

what's up everyone...

Just stopping in to say hi to everyone before I start posting. I have to say this site has alot of information on it, you just have to use that fun little button up top labeled "Search".

Since my join date this site has helped me fix alot of my oil leaks, 2 boost leaks, surging idle (almost, but I am almost finished). Only thing I am looking for is how to find out what gen each part under the hood is from. I picked up a 91 gs w/ a 1st gen bottom end/ 2nd gen top end.

Mod list that I know of so far...(about to be in contact with the builder)
16g turbo
greddy bov
spearco fmic
short throw shifter
aem ems (will be replaced soon for something better)
k&n cone filter
3in exhaust
dump valve
hks 272 cams
hks valve springs
1mm over valves
Titanium retainers
msd box
Bosch fuel pump (not installed yet)
stock injectors
tokico blues
mbc
egt/ boost/ a/f gauges

There is alot more then this, some of it I've forgotten...some of it will be found out when I talk with the builder this morning.

I currently have a equal legnth mainfold w/ a t3 flange (external wastegate), as soon as I find the turbo/wastegate setup I will be putting these on.

Machine work:
Block- (1st gen bottom end) as far as machine work on the block it looks stock, it's about to come apart again and taken to the machine shop.

Head- (2nd gen head) matched intake ports to gasket, port and polish, multi-angle valve job

Intake manifold- ported and polished



Along with the car has been great problems (the builder sold the car and in which was sold to me within 3 weeks). Poor car the last guy beat the living dog poop out of it, w/ no clue what or how to take care of this car.

However what i do know, is this car has seen some respectable numbers on the dyno. I've all ready talked with the builder of the car once...today we just sit will he has free time to discuss every inch of the car.

Anyway, hello all...and glad to be here.

i'll post pics...anyone in the waco, texas area? This car was bought outta that town.

Re: n00b introduction

Looks like a pretty good setup you have. Welcome to the forum. Looks like you know how to use the "SEARCH" button. +1 . lol

Good luck with the car in the future.

Re: n00b introduction

I've used the aem ems systems before on a few other cars (93 honda hatch, 91 turbo II rx7, and tried to do so w/ a volvo ). Each time I've have taken it out and put a mega squirt ems system in. I am going to do so with this car...I've also been looking into the dsm link, but don't have enough knowledge on that system...I'll be looking around town for fellow dsm's for opinions.

As long as you're familiar with megasquirt then sell the Aem for $1200 and further mod the car plus megasquirt. It's a wonderful system and seem's to be just as fast and capable as the Ems, it will be in use by myself as well soon...
