This Members Ride - RayRay 2001 GT

Going to create this here in case I ever decide to do anything else to my car. I bought it bone stock. Nothing cosmetic or performance done to it at all.



Those are pics right after i took the stock headlights off and these on.

These next two are months and months later, plasti-dip the stock rims and the louvers below the front blinkers. Also cut the CHEAP-o wire mesh to show the CHEAP-o foglights.

UPDATED PICS:
New Wheels, smoked turn signals.
__________ New 10/6/12

__________New 11/16/13






ALSO: don't drink and drive =(


K thanks, bye

EDIT..... links broke????

inserting http://i.imgur.com/soVZZ.jpg with [IMG] xxxxxx [/IMG]

no clue why broke, must be imgur.com

EDIT #2: someone should add to EDU: How-To Post Pictures and let everyone know to NOT use imgur.com =P-

eCaldwell needs to be reminded to breathe.
Links are broken, just need to fix that so we can see them. Use the direct link and put it between image tags.

3.0 Diamante

Crap.. that Diamante was the 3.0 v6 not the 3.5. Now im trying to search the difference if there is one and see if I've messed up. Hopefully its the exact same mani and everything will be ok.

Um, only difference (well huge difference) between the 3.0 and 3.5 is the inlet for the intake is on the opposite side. When looking at the engine the TB should be on the right hand side. If the TB is on the left hand side you cant use it.

Thank you for the info, if i post a pic of what i have will you look at it? If i recall when i pulled it off at the junk yard the throttle body was on the right side like the eclipse. I left the TB there though cuz it was locked up and frozen, looked like shiot too.

3.0 Diamante mani





I know it doesn't show much but at this point I'm a little worried simply because every thread and post for this swap is about the 3.5 diamante v6 not the 3.0

Awesome-sauce!! You just gave me lil butterflies in my stomache. I definately plan on cleaning it up before i bolt it on. Im just so freakin worried about all these vacuum hoses and brackets.

I know there is an issue with sparatic idle on some that have done this swap. I just really really wanna get a clean perfect swap with no trouble as this is my DD. Actually my only ride right now since my girl wrecked her cobalt she took my 4-runner.

It begins

Just started, it got dark quick. Took air intake hose and breather off first. 10mm wrench for the clamp near intake. Small tube in a nipple split off plenum and ran into breather hose. At the end near the filter was the electrick plug for the MAF box, had a blue circle.

Removed battery first, forgot about that. Extra room FTW. Got dark and i came in. Left this step here so i have info when the new intake is bolted on. Will dump pics if anyone wants - just let me know.

Gaskets.

I'm going to start with this pic. Upon reading all the how to's and different threads about this this ONE GASKET was the only thing i didnt notice anyone mentioning.

Good thing autozone had the "upper intake manifold gasket kit" which included the gasket for this piece, i circled in red and drew an arrow to the manifold.

This nipple came off the stock intake breather hose, then it runs somewhere underneath the intake manifold. Took the pic to remember where that hose goes.

Finally got the intake on, got all the vaccuum lines too. Gotta find a way to secure the throttle cable to the back of the manifold though.

The gas pedal is stiff as hell.

found the lack of power issue. Stupid stock air breather hose huge hole in it. Need to replace with injen intake or something. For now just patched the hole and it has all the power it had and then some. not much extra but the sound is like night and day.

Update

Just an update. After i got the Diamante manifold on it felt off. Felt weaker. A week later or so the car started missing.

I was about to start testing the vacuum system but really didnt want to. I just sat there on a stool in front of the engine with the hood open staring at things.

Eventually i looked underneath the manifold and saw the culprit. My buddy that helped get the back bolts off the manifold didnt tighten the rubber spark plug gloves. two of them were raised away from the valve cover about 2 inches o.O

Quickly secured them into place and maaaaaaaaan i'm happy. The sound, the little extra power.. it finally feels the way i was expecting this mani swap to feel

Smoke turn signals

Just took a chance with these smoked signals. Cheap enough for me to not care if they end up looking like crap

Cool cool, even if they look like CRAP they are cheap enough for me to hold onto in case anyone else wants something like that.

It will be awesome if they come in by Friday Gotta love weekend mods

Turn Signals

Just came in and out with the old in with the new. 5 minutes total, they shipped with hardware screws including new mounting brakets for the screws and 2 yellow bulbs since the stock ones are clear bulbs.


Now time to save for some wheels.

when you get a throttle body it will help more, now either gut your sotck manifolds or get some headers and you will pretty much be set.

I know right??!!! I finally got my boss to front me the money to get it done and as soon as he says GO the temp drops by at least 15 for 4 days in a row so far =(

To make myself feel better about it though, I am taking this frame of thought:


defrost will work better... defrost will work better... defrost will work better....

looks like you are getting everything fixed up.
how long did it take you to do the intake swap?

My AC likes to act up. It will just shut off randomly.

Mine was doing the same thing. Sometimes it would cut on and blow perfectly cold then suddenly shut off out of nowhere. Well the Compressor light would cut off and blink and not blow cold. Other times it would blow cold for 2 minutes and then stop. Clutch has a ring spacing?? The ring can wear out and the spacing gets too far?? Thus allowing the clutch to not work properly??

The intake swap took me all weekend because I am crippled from a car wreck from 2003. It was more than painful and i had to get a friend to help me take out the bolts and brackets near the firewall. I'm sure an able bodied person can get it done in half a day though, its no biggie.

oh ok, so it wasn't too overly complicated to do.

How did you fix the ring spacing?

Well there are at least 3 threads dedicated to doing it. I took bits of info in all three and combined everything together best I could. I'm sure the vacuum hoses can get fucked fairly easy if you dont remember/track/label things.... the first time i fired it up after everything was put back together the car redlined instantly. I knew it was the vacuum hoses and had to go look at all the pics i took as i took things apart.

Thinking about it now, the best thing anyone could do is get the EGR valve lined up and fitted FIRST, then put the intake in place..... wish i had done that.

Oh and the ring spacing.... its inside the compressor... i dont know enough about it all to fix it. Nor do i have the ability to recharge my system, mechanic is doing it all.

NEW WHEELS!!!

Club3G Forum : Mitsubishi Eclipse 3G Forums - View Profile: HEATHB4R

Thanks to HEATHB4R ( you rock man ) I'm going to have some new wheels. Don't have them on yet as it is Sunday and no one is open to wrap em. If anyone knows someone selling some 18's holler

Anyway. 1100 mile round trip, with a SH*T TON of deer and only 3 cops. 4 3G's 2 Spyders and a 280z. Luckily I did not hit any deer, but I did brake check one. Took a few picks and will upload them in a sec. Got turned around a total of 2 times.

On a side note: the last 45 minutes of Arkansas and the first 45 minutes of Missouri was hell on my ears.... altitudes crazy high then crazy low

At least I had a cup holder for the ride back

Looking forward to seeing those wrapped and on your car! After talking with my dad about your oil leak, he suggested that you see if your PCV valve is clogged or needs replacing. He said it could mess up the oil pressure and COULD cause you to leak oil from the cap.

THANK you! That reminds me, why would an oil cap suddenly need to be replaced? Anyone ever heard of anything like that? lol

Not bad, lower it before you get the spacers so you know exactly how much more space you need to flush it out
