|This car is a 1986 Lancer ES. Originally, it had a turbo I engine.
It has A/C, black leather seats, sunroof, navigator and it's power everything.
This car never seen winter and has no rust. Odometer has 55K.
1990 VNT Daytona engine and turbo (turbo IV)
Heavy duty drive axle
Soldered a "second frame" for the radiator support which has ripped
apart in the past from too much torque :-) (nitrous + boost)
16" shelby CS rims from the 1990 Daytona Shelby
Turbo II intercooler and hoses.
All 1990 turbo IV electronics (computer and solenoids)
K&N drop in filter
No blow-off valve !!
Running 12 psi on low and 14-15 psi on high (with bleed)
Castrol Syntech 5w50 oil
Fram HP1 Racing oil filter (very large, it gives me half a pint more
oil than a regular filter)
NGK V-power spark plugs
Manual switch for the radiator fan
Using the A568 manual transmission
Gauges: Digital dash, Autometer liquid filled 30 PSI boost, oil pressure,
water temperature and finally a Monster tach
Just added an Intellitronix (cyberdyne) air/fuel meter
Removed some weight (Spare tire, jack, subwoofer boxes, rear carpet
and old soaked insulation from the trunk) took out about 100 lb, added
~ 10 HP)
Changed front suspension with Shelby's from a 1990 Daytona (see better
Changed camber to -0.5 in front and stock in the rear for better
cornering and launches. (Much better cornering : Can take a corner at 40
miles an hour with no tire
screaching when I could barely do it at 32-33 miles.
Took off a/c belt
Relocated the VNT Solenoids on the firewall behind the intake manifold
This resulted in very fast response (Shorter tubing) from the turbo
and more power (don't k
And it also almost eliminated the spikes (again shorter tubing).
Installed the two stage boost controller (switch with common selenoid).
