Id love to build a Starquest with a 2jzgte. This will make the whole installation 1000 times easier! Id like to have everything built and ready to go for a final assembly. Still, after being one of the first to talk to Mikie I just had to check the car out for myself. I painted it all black when i was done but i guess i forgot to snap a pic. Ive got that sorted now and have the 3. This car's ultimate purpose will be more for curvy-road driving than anything else; I'm not a drag racer.
And thus began a five-year process in which he taught himself how to weld, how to fabricate parts and how to build a functional car for both the track and the street. Every track day he attends, he learns something new about the car, and all of this knowledge gets funneled back into the build itself. Hell, when did the Japanese even start selling cars over here? If a turbo wasn't important, I could pull the Mitsubishi 6G75 out of the last-generation Eclipse coupe and be done with it. For more info about upcoming events, visit: This ultra-clean Mitsubishi Starion is a street car, and has never been on a race track before. Values of a really clean well running car has been climbing lately. Things are a bit less cohesive inside, but notable points include comfortable looking two-tone seats and a four point, padded roll bar in place of the rear seat.
I obviously misjudged what the market value of these cars is, but I'm still a StarQuest guy with this being my third and fastest. Spent most the day waiting on this Y pipe to show up so i could work on the exhaust. Switching over to the Mopar side, there are a handful of 4-cyl options I'm not crazy about 2. The Starion is one of the first modern Japanese turbocharged performance automobiles with electronic fuel injection. Now that i have told you what i do know about the swap any additional input anyone has to give will be greatly appreciated. An version of the Starion was also produced for specifications one of the few to enter this class , but after an encouraging start as a prototype, it was not before the banned Group B cars for safety reasons.
I had a replacement engine lined up, but it fell through and I don't have the time or energy to look for another one that I know is good. To that end, I feel I have two choices with the StarQuest: another Mitsubishi motor, or something from its adoptive parent, Chrysler Corp. The gas tank was removed to replace the fuel pump but not put back in the car. The Starion was converted to all wheel drive by adding a strengthened from a Pajero behind the transmission. Refinement and execution are fascinating.
The car was originally an automatic, but was converted to a stick shift. Its getting close to time for final assembly now! Next, popularity with rednecks, white trash and the ever obnoxious buy Murican types. It all depends on mileage, modifications, and condition. Advanced design indeed, and one hell of a homemade build. Also, what trades you might have.
Keep up the great work! Most people are not going to pay a premium price for such a poor looking car, especially the group here. I understand its for budget reasons though and I still appreciate the car. Not a badge-engineered Chrysler Conquest, but the Japanese original, with no aftermarket parts in sight. Even though it may have been more fab work, I think the 1jz swap was easier than the smallblock swap simply because there was room on the side of the engine to work with. Try not putting someone down for improving on a cool, yet flawed car, and maybe quit sucking on mommy's teet's, and maybe get out of the basement and try building you own car with your own money, Douchebags.
Getting 600 rwhp is common with the right mods, and the car is still completely streetable well over the 400 rwhp mark. In the Netherlands, John Hugenholtz won the over 2L class in the Dutch Championship, with the Colin Blower-prepared Mitsubishi Dealers car. The doors took me awhile to locate all the proper pieces. The question is - does this Stallion belong in your stable or the glue factory? Front seat belts were located in the doors for the driver and front passenger. If you don't want the motor do you need the wire harness? I wish they didn't have tweeter holes cut it them, but they are still in better condition than any other set I had to use.
But it was so cool we couldn't help but see how it would hold up to a few laps, and its owner was an incredibly good sport. I've never dyno'd the car or taken it to the track. Worked out the ecu panel, sits where the factory ecu was, pretty happy with that Starter wiring! I enjoy an auto better in the stop and go traffic jams I see daily. I decided to wrap them all in some heat sheating from Thermal zero, this will help keep the heat down near the exhaust. Like a dirigible from a 99 cents only store, they are well known for being light, cheap and blowing up. Australian vehicles were mostly similar to the European Turbo specification.
