Post NW oregon mx-3 projects
Now that it's getting warmer and spring is finally deciding to show it's face I thought it would be cool if we could get a list together of things we want to work on and do either as a group or separately... just so we know what's going on with each other :D

For everybody:
Lexan for the hatches/ hatch installs
B-Pillar bars - I know we talked about this a while back

My list:
• Coolant system flush, adding water wetter
• Install SS brake line, master and slave clutch cylinders, replace brake pads,
• Brake system flush and replace with racing blue fluid
• Replace ball joints, get alignment
• Reprime race car (or flat black)
• PASS EMISSIONS :roll:
• Install new set of headers/ possible new muffler/ possible high flow cat if I can't pass emissions
• Make a true CAI by routing piping into front bumper
• When I get a new suspension system, installing that
• Install whiteline swaybar and wytbushings/ endlinks
• When LSD is ready, adding and rebuilding spare tranny
• Get DD running again... sigh :crying:

For me.....

*Finish pulling dash out
*Gut doors and lexan the side windows
*Finish roll cage
*Install custom intake/new TB
*Finish car trailer to take the MX to the track!!

I gave up on passing emissions a loooong time ago. I would love to find another red MX3 and keep it just for DEQ and plate my turbo car!

So, you used my "technique" :lol:
I'll write about my plans when I'm less frustrated with them. I finally found out that I need to pull the fuse for the alarm (which I don't know where it is), then disconnect the battery, to reset the cut-offs.. There are 3 fuses inline, and an extra fuse in the underdash box, so I'll pull them all, and see if it works.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Post Re: NW oregon mx-3 projects
Beside putting in the hatch, I want to:
Get the thing running,
Install the wideband O2, and fine tune it,
Install Wytbushings,
Paint the car,
Finish the sound deadening,
Drive real fast.
Which reminds me; I need a Valentine Cop detector!

Now I need to figure out how come it stumbles on acceleration ~2500-3500rpm, almost like there's water/air in the fuel line or something

I just had this issue and it would hesitate between 3-4krpm - it ended up being my 7 nipple disti that was bad (or at least the pickups inside or something)... put in another one and it runs like a champ now!
