Non-pictured Mods:
  • All turbo-related hoses exchanged for 5/32" vacuum tubing.  This is a good mod for those who decide against boost controllers.  It gives at least 2psi, but don't do this mod unless you already have a boost gauge.
  • NGK 8mm blue wires and 6ES copper plugs (BIG difference over Bosch plats!!).
  • DSS hi flow in-tank fuel pump.
  • Tiny round 40 watt Blazer fog lights (awaiting installation).
  • GTS Rear window wind deflector (adds a unique touch....have yet to see this on another DSM).
  • CenterForce Dual Friction performance clutch.
  • RedLine MTL tranny fluid in tranny and differentials.
  • 2.5" test pipe (need to install).
  • Jim McKenna setup (so I can manually control boost from inside the car).

 

Wish List!!

  • 3.0" Dave Buschur exhaust with 4" exaust tip.
  • 3.0" downpipe.
  • Mitsubish "BIG" 16G turbocharger.
  • 3.0" hi-flow cat (will try to make this easily removable for testpipe).
  • Apexi Super Air/Fuel Computer (SAFC).
  • RC 550cc Injectors from The DSM Shop.
  • Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) Gauge (still debating which brand).

 

Manual Boost Controller Fabrication Instructions and List of Parts Needed:

Before doing ANY of the below modifications, MAKE SURE you install a boost gauge! This is very important. Your boost gauge will tell you when other installs go wrong. Seriously, you can melt internal engine components if you aren't careful and don't monitor what you do. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE  FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY OCCUR.

 

  • Layout #1: Use this with a Hartz fishtank bleeder valve.
  • Layout #2: A variation of the above layout. This is the schematic I use.
  • Layout #3: This schematic depicts Jim McKenna's cockpit mounted MBC.
  • For purchase of bleeder valve to fabricate a manual boost controller, order these parts from Grainger's Catalog: part #s 2z767 and 6zf65. See Layouts #1, 2, and/or 3 for install instruction schematics. If you decide not to install a manual boost controller, I recommend replacing all hoses related to the "T" with 5/32" vacuum tubing.  That should give you 1 to 2 lbs of extra boost to play with.

 

Get Your Parts Here:
  • Try Road Race Enginnering, located in Huntington Beach, CA.  They specialize in roadracing, but do alot of go-fast mods for DSMs.
  • If you want aftermarket parts for your Talon/Eclipse/Laser, then try Diamond Star Specialties!  These guys rock when it comes to making your car go faster.   They also carry parts for cars other than Diamond Star.
