Re: Find hoses

ah yes, the pp hose. most of those have long since disintegrated. the part number is 17881-15050, though good luck trying to source a new one.

as for the exhaust to air cleaner, you can get universal ones based off the diameter of the pipes.

Re: Parts to save from an 89 coupe

Think it's time to send my parts car to the great scrapyard in the sky. The engine and transmission are both 90% metal shavings and the interior is pretty rank, but all the accessories and body are in great conditon. Anything worth keeping around? Willing to mail out smaller parts if folks pay for ...

Re: Blacktop 20v 4AGE In my Wagon

Well wanted to post an update. Today we dyno tested and tuned the wagon. It easily made 130whp like first pull at 6000rpm (im a bit scared to take it any higher for fear of the trans spinning too much and letting go) but it sounded mint at 6k I was super surprised, After this video we turned on the...

Re: Won't start after sitting a few days?

sounds like either the fuel pump is getting weak, or your accelerator pump isnt working

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

Well, good news. I choked down the price of new, quality hitachi coil packs, and i think that fixed my misfire. I've been driving it the last few days with the old packs, and once it warmed up the engine would not misfire. However, with the hitachi coils, there are no more misfires, even when dead c...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

Mechanically the engine is okay (well, not really. theres a bunch of slop in the piston-to-cylinder due to the machine shop fucking up the bore -- not enough to cause piston slap, but more than there should be). I am still leaning towards this being an ecu issue, or a coil pack issue. No, I dont ha...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

This might be a big issue or not. Could you swap spark plugs between cylinders 3 & 4 and injectors between cylinders 2 & 3? Then you could retest if the very same repeats or not in cylinder 3. this is a fairly big issue. parts within the ecu should not be burning out. i tried swapping injec...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

so... after much testing, tearing apart, and reassembling turbos, i finally got one that doesnt leak oil into the exhaust. great. put it all back together, and it seems to drive okay. I still have an active random misfire that is essentially untraceable due to the ecu limitations. My best guess is f...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

Welp, sad day. This last sunday was the last autocross event. I was planning on going, so to ensure everything was up to snuff, I drove the car into work that friday morning. Car kept misfiring, but I thought it was due to it being kinda cold out, and I really hadnt tuned the car for that. Get to an...
