Re: HEAD GASKET

many folks refer to their head gasket as 'the fuse.. Better than damaged pistons, if that's the case.

Too many monsters out there run plain old composite head gaskets
On a good tune, you shouldn't need 'the best gasket', I reckon

Re: CLUTCH

sound like the typical mpi 2.0L sohc proven recipee. Nice! 300 ft-lbs is effortless for a tbi 2.6, so I'd think 350nm is no prob for a mpi 2.0 custom twin plate surely sounds "exotic" ? :roll: single plate 'upgraded' clutch hold 500+ ft-lbs tq, with slightly more pedal effort than the soft...

Re: Manual steering

over the past few years, several corolla owners said they would do a detailed writeup of their EPS conversion. None did
Seems like you can sift thru info online nowadays, and perhaps come away with enough info to d.i.y.

Re: Manual steering

race car is the only situation I can see power steering might be less desirable. I'd hate a staz without PS
Does the reservoir empty itself to the point where there is no more power assist ? Overfill maybe ?

Re: STILL NO SPARK! Replaced everything ignition related

seems like a really oddball problem. It's great to have sharp mitsu minds around, to get it sorted.

Re: STILL NO SPARK! Replaced everything ignition related

sometimes when my starion sat for a while, it would always crank over but no start
I would either wiggle the fusible links by the battery.... OR the harness from the fuse panel under dash

Re: SOHC Camshaft

look up the sohc builds in the projects forum.... and search threads on the subject in this forum. Many have very good results with camtech from my observations.

A 10sec street 4cyl sohc 5 speed car hits 125mph over the 1/4 mile, in third gear I'm sure u can find any evo motor swap into a starion http://projectzerog.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=6&sid=420b07eab3c63d3f85f4fab72af9...
