or use this 4cyl as parts car and find yourself a v6 mx3. 32hp gain right there. 112hp gain if u get the klze.


Well that's overly complicated, BPs come in 130hp too, and would be cheaper, and much less work, and he can turbo it later depending on his budget. He's just getting started, id take it slow and stay away from 4cyl to v6 conversions.

i dont think my engine bay would take a v6.... :-\ well either way i dont want to deal with a v6 i want an I4 for sure but i wouldnt mind a DOHC since i only got a SOHC immma buy another car after this one i just want to fix it so its good and make it a little quicker its already quick i just need some more kick in the lower....but maybe its all just me and its because there is antifreeze in the gas and the exhaust is getting louder so there must be a hole. i pumped everything outa the tank i havnt prof. cleaned the injectors yet but i think im going to have to bring it to the ppl to clean my gas tank or sum thats what my mechanic told me i just tried putting seafoam and filling the tank. its alright seems like its just burning thru it.....well either way there is no more smoke when i start the car in the morning....so maybe its gone.....maybe i just need to change the injectors.....or maybe i think ill drop the gas tank one more time when it starts acting up dump it all out instead of pumping it and just clean the injectors with that high pressure can with that gas solution. well see. i just need to go pass inspect today so we see what happends

-oh damn i changed the cap rotor and replaced the thermostat and it drives a LOT better now. now im gonna need some spark plug wires....it still bubbles up i dont understand why its getting hot like that. maybe it needs some time.i have the sensor connected on the front side of the block but the sensor on the thermostat housing i dont have it connected because i dont have the end piece to connect it. anyone can help me out with that? i put a new sensor on the thermostat housing but i dont know. let me take a picture of it today and ill show you guys maybe you could help me figure something else....maybe i need to take a trip to that one junkyard that had a DOHC engine maybe i can get the connector from that.....maybe i can get the stock intake box. but it seems okay i just keep the gears in the high rpms and i can get the torque i need. 60 65 5th gear nice and 40 45 in 4th gear is nice. i havnt tested the rest yet but at that range

the stop light (brake) switch is on the pedal. the only one on the brake pedal, as far as I know.

can you find me a diagram of the sensors all of them if possible because i need to look for some idle sensor or something because the car dies out sometimes it just has trouble holding the idle idk why and someone mentioned two diff sensors i forgot and i looked all alldata but i dont really get to see diagrams of all the sensors i search for. if someone can find me a diagram that would be very helpful apparently i need to change my inner tie rod because i put the outer already like 3 times finally i got a pregreesed one and it still shakes so i should have the innter tomorrow and i still need to chase that neutral safety switch because i put it and the reverse lights STILL dont work :-\ i only got 30 days to get my rejection taken off. then after i want to find the original horn wire.

ALRIGHT say worse case or i might be thinking about a motorswap in the near future. how much do you think it will cost for me to get a BPT motor any one i guess. would i need to replace the tranny too?
