what size cupler is that on the turbo outlet


It's been a while, but I think it is a 2" to 2.5" coupler. I can measure it when I get home.

Post Re: My broken DSM
Well I was going to do a pretty mild rebuild. Until I talked with Robert at RRE and Greg at Millenium Motorsports... Those guys make some pretty persuasive arguments.

I just dropped my head and block off at Millenium this morning.

Here is the list...

Torque plate bore and hone
Resurface block
Resurface head
Valve job
Inspect, measure, and micro polish crankshaft
All new seals
Wiseco Pistons 8.5 CR
Eagle Rods
ARP hardware
Balance shaft removal
New Mitsubishi oil pump/front case assy
ACL H series bearings
Brian Crower springs and retainers
SS swirl polished 1mm oversize nitrided valves
Engine balance

I'm also probably going with a 2.3 stroker if I can find a 6 bolt 4G64 crank. Greg is looking for me and I've been scouring the internet, but If anyone has any leads please let me know! I'm also probably reinstalling the Green and routing the 40mm TiAL into the downpipe. Later I will also be picking up HKS 272s when my wallet rebounds from the murderating it's about to receive.

Saturday I start taking the front end of the Talon apart so I can begin the process of drilling out spot welds to replace my radiator support. I have so much stuff to do to get this car back together that I can't even make a list because I keep forgetting to add stuff to it. I just remembered this morning that I need new front axles too.

Damn man, so much for the mild rebuild! :lol:

Should be a blast though once you get it all together, keeps us updated on the progress.

Greg was able to locate a 100mm crank, so I will be going with the 2.3 stroker. So that's exciting. I can't commend him enough on his customer service and communication. It's been a pleasure working with Millenium Motorsports so far.

I also just picked up some nice stuff at a local junkyard yesterday.

Image

1g Eprom ECU (spare)
1g BOV (spare, though I don't really need 3)
2g AWD dual piston brakes (going on my Talon)
1g timing belt cover (going on my Talon to replace my melted one)

I got my head and block back from Greg at Millenium Motorsports. So far it's looking pretty good. I need to take some more pictures, but for now here is the block.

Image

I ended up going with the 2.3L since Greg had a 100mm crank laying around. I was planning on keeping this a mild street car, but it's probably just a matter of time before a cage goes in at this point...

I'll probably have the stock crank and 1g rods for sale to help offset the price of build.

More pictures to come this weekend.

Nice 2.3 stroker on the Fp green should be lots of fun
What fuel setup do you plan to run ?

Post Re: My broken DSM
I have FP 650cc disc injectors with a rewired Walbro 255 right now. That was fine when I was running 26psi on 93 octane with an SAFC, but we'll see what happens when I get everything put together. This will be running on 91 octane with ECMLink V3 since there are no E85 stations near me, so I'll probably be pushing the limits of those injectors.

Plans right now are to put the 14b on there since I am trying to get this out of state car registered for the street in CA and it needs a fighting chance to pass the visual inspection at the DMV. Plus I want to take it a little easy on the fresh engine and I still have stock cams. Once I get it running I'm sure I will be reassessing the situation.

The visual inspection isn't that bad for changing the car over to Commifornia registration. All they do is verify the VIN number and look at the emissions stickers that are on the underside of the hood. My car was registered in Arizona when I got it so I had to do the same shit. I already had the EGR blocked off, evoIII 16g, intake, greddy bov and a whole other host of shit. The DMV guy from AAA didn't really look twice at it, just went out there with his clip board, got his information and sent me on my way. Go through AAA if you have it (if not you should buy it), the time saved through using the DMV services is well worth imo.

Thanks guys, very helpful! I'll definitely go through AAA then.

This is my setup as it sits now (or will once I get everything back together. This picture was taken 9 years ago.) I just figured it might be a touch too illegal looking to pass a visual inspection. I will be painting the intake pipe and IC pipes matte black, as well as getting black couplers for everything. I just figured the external WG and dump tube might tip them off.

You are going to like that 2.3. Greg built mine for me last year and I have been having fun with it as long as turbos stay alive and my transmission stays in one piece, but that is another story.

I broke in my 2.3, Sam tuned it, and then I drive it 2,700 miles across the country. I trust Greg's work.
