You check your spark plugs? That exhaust wheel is toast.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

And here is some more carnage I found. Something went though my bep exhaust housing also. By the position I'm thinking it was part of a fin.

Since I had the radiator out i decided to do this mod also to see if it helped the coolant temps. And I'm also hoping that this mod may allow a the 2nd stock fan to go back in. But won't know till I mount the turbo and everything back in (hope to put it together tomorrow before the superbowl)

Well pulled the plugs. The looked like they needed to be changed even though they have less then 1000 miles on them.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

So if it wasn't your plugs that killed your turbo, what was it?
Have you done a compression test to verify no valves are bent? If solid compression then maybe your turbo self destructed, if valves bent then prob something went through the motor. I had some rocks go through my motor and take out valves, pistons, and one turbo last year. Hopefully your motor is good.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

I'll do a compression check hopefully before the weekend.

I'm taking my 02 housing to work, in the hopes I'll find someone who can weld it for me.
I also sent Justin from tuners a pm to see what he thinks about the turbo and if it's even salvageable/worth rebuilding.

Part of me thinks this is a sign. I'd been on the fence on which turbo to run for road racing anyways. Guess now I don't have to make the choice lol.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well pulled the valve cover off to see if I could find any carnage in there. But actually everything looks in great shape.

Since I have some time before my 02housing is ready. I had a guy at work shave the lettering off valve cover.
So far I'm at 400grit sand paper

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well tax money is in ordered new parts.

- road race FEAL 441 kit today with dust covers
-Paul Volk LCA and rear toe arms, custom provisions to be able to mount my porsche brake ducts.
-adjustable rear wishbones.

Also will be sending my rims off to be repaired (curb rash and what not removed) still debating on going with RPF1 18x10.5 but not sure if I want to run a spacer as I don't have any way to modify my suspension yet to clear them.

Edit: Feal Suspension and bobby's adjustable wishbone came in

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Few updates:
Received my torque solutions 12mm exhaust mounts. And they are really beefy. They have almost no flex in them what so every and look twice as thick as the stock rubber hangars.
Also received parts to make new all black 12an oil drain. The one I made out of braided line was just to rigid and a royal pain in the ass to get into place. The braided black line stuff is much more flexible.

Also recieved my tracking info for my feal 441 road race Suspension will be here on the 12th.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Need hood pin advice. Wife ordered me the carbonetics hood and rear diffuser for my 40th birthday coming up next month in fiberglass as I plan to paint them.(pictures for example)

I want to go with aerocatch locking hoodpins. But which style.
120-2100
125-2100

I've looked at the Web and most people run the 120-2100
Including Andrew Brilliant and john fruend.

But figured they probably got there prior to the 125-2100.

However ive also considered there might be a clamping/holding different between them

Anyrate chime in with info/knowledge

Looking good man! I'm looking forward to the pictures with the new parts on and the hood pins. Thanks for going with Aerocatch and not the cheap hood pins that turn to shit.

I might have missed it, but did you get a new turbo installed/car running well again?

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Yep car is up and running. Back on my old hx35 that I HD sitting in the garage. Been DD for last 2 weeks (only because it's be awesome out and I want to drive it 90's)

Also more birthday presents came in today.

Got my RZ42 helmet that my brother recommended today.

Tried to talk my brother into coming 2 days early next week so we can go to the "CHIN" event at road atlanta with the eclipse. But he can't. (We're going to Atlanta to go camping with my family for my 40th right by the track. But I didn't realize how close it was till we had already make flight arrangements)

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well today I think I am officially going to call my car an original talon that was converted to an eclipse
I had a tail light bulb socket go out on my driverside that stopped the light from getting brighter when you press the brake pedal. So I asked Steve Miller to send me a pair from his yard. And he sent me a 2 pin. Set which didn't work. Long story short over past 2 days he's been checking his eclipses trying to find any that have a 3 pin light bulb socket. None did. He got in a 98 eagle talon. Checked it and it had a 3 pin light bulb socket.

You can see the 2 pin has the slot for the 3rd pin but it's just empty. And when you press the brake pedal with rhe the 2 pin version. The whole brake light shuts off

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

What does the VIN and title say? Looking at your original post, you say its a '97 GSX, but is that an Eagle logo I see on the steering wheel?

Title states eclipse, car fax stated eclipse. But I'll admit I only my wife got the carfax to pull up at home. I never got to check the whole history of it before the time ran out on the report (just got busy and forgot about it, as it really doesn't matter for the most part, other then these little differences)
