We WILL find out. AAA will be the first to know!

I almost put my ball valve boost controller on today, but I thought I should play with this 86+ APC and see if its any good.

I'm stuck on base boost.. it's fast and fun compared to my 99, but I want to see rubber on the underside of the mirrors. yanno?

Have you made any progress with removing the top/everything else that isn't needed?

well that EMS has one and i think i need to sell the car, so it may get the stock engine back in it or or a n/a 16 v with megasquirt and mss exhaust. what i don't need is a car that boring of a color!

what you need if you ask anyone else is a 'h motor turbo cis metering plate' if they ask why just tell them they are different. that way you should avoid any arguments.

So i'm pretty stoked about this car. It doesn't shift out of 1st until 55 mph. It's so fun! I couldn't get APC to work so I hooked up my ball valve and it boosts really nice, about the same as a car with proper APC as I remember, except it has a few extra PSI.. probably up to around 12. I don't know how high it can go with stock software and intercooling, so I'm going to leave it there. I pegged the speedo needle on the odometer reset button the other day racing a NG900 Turbo a friend of mine has. He got his ass kicked

The car is tail heavy with the top in and it bugs me. Not a good combination with the sway bars, I have already gotten the back end to come out twice, when I wasn't really expecting it.

Overall this car hauls ass but is a little heavy. I think it needs two new cv joints and a shock bushing, also. Lots of clunking. I may just run it like it is all summer and do a little work on it this winter.

So for an update..

The other day (last thurs) on the way to work while traversing a railroad crossing my lower A-arm decided to break. I got it all lined up to weld it, and the 220 extension cord wouldn't reach. I put the wheel back on the car to try and drive it in and it fucked off the A-arm, I wasn't able to line it up again.

I got a ride from mom, came back later in the 99 with a buddy, an air tank, an impact wrench, and a new A-arm. When I got home I replaced the CV axle/hub/rotor assembly as a whole because it needed renewing anyways.

Yesterday I took the top mechanism, headliner, and top cover out as a whole. It was really easy. I also removed the hydraulics and the moisture barrier. The hardest part was the 20 thousand staples on the back lip of the car and under the side spoilers.















Today I replaced the intercooler.

Replaced, as opposed to clean.



How does it go, Eleventybillion whp?

Today I also took out the center console and kick panel. I also advanced the timing quite a bit.

The car is riding a full inch higher in the back and is really responsive steering wise.

thats sweet. though it really looks very odd with that big gaping hole, you should make a cover or something. but i suppose when your front wheels dont match your back wheels...its not that big of a deal

I love the old IC. That's precious. Funny thing is that I had the text at the bottom of my screen and had not seen the photo before reading that you replaced the old one. I fully understood why as soon as I scrolled down

I dont even know how I would clean that.

If I was at work I would probably throw it in the parts washer and then use 5 or 6 cans of brake clean after that for some high pressure love. I have no idea where that grease came from, it boggles my mind. There is nothing over there.

Good thing I had a box of intercoolers

I've been thinking about making a cover for it. The thing is, nothing is on the same plane so you can't use one piece of plywood or something, it won't lay right. I was thinking about buying some leather fabric and stapeling it in, but I'm afraid it won't really last because of all the wind it will get.

They didn't weigh as much as I thought. The side panels are also really light when you take the speakers out.

It was not, until last weekend.


Now, it's been folded flat since.

Next I want to take out all the A/C junk, the APC, cruise control, and anything else in the engine bay that isn't necessary. I'm also thinking of taking the entire HVAC system out and leaving the heater just fixed at half on the floor half on the defroster.

I wanted to take the heater core and everything out, but it does get cold at night and right now with the windows up and the parcel shelf stuffed back there it is really comfortable with some heat.

The windows are probably the biggest single source of weight left on the car. The windows and regulators together would be alot of weight.

Paint is brand new, except for the gouge I put in the trunk lid from falling over with a convertable top in tote.

I'd love to have one of those covers. There are two problems, however. One is I don't have one. The other is I don't think it will get supported properly if someone walks on it. I had a girl fall in the damn hole last night it was so awesome. Bitch, this is a precision instrument, be careful!
