Problem with Mitsubishi Magna
Problems with my 4 cylinder auto Mitsubishi Magna TR SE 1992.
edit: going on a suggestion by someone on Mitsubishi forums, i have checked the TPS (throttle position sensor), and it wasn't working properly. i scrubbed the rust off the connections, hit it, and it hasn't screwed up since.
hope that helps other people who have the same problem. i paid $180 for nothing, hope that doesn't happen to you.

Mods: Hurricane Tri Y extractors, Exhaust, K&N filter
Recent Dyno run had this car running Air Fuel Ratios of 11 to 10 from 3700RPM onwards, so room for improvements with a tune? :o)

Booya's Boosted TE magna hits 280kph on a sealed road. Was completely legal at the time (unlimited speed limit in NT at the time of the video).
Mitsubishi Magna 3.0 Manual Acceleration
(My first upload, yay!) Basically, I've seen plenty of videos of automatic Mitsubishi Magnas and manual 3.5L Magnas... And a few 3.0L autos too. But there's no videos showcasing what a little 3.0L manual can do. They're a very underestimated little donk, and - while they can be asthmatic when coupled with the auto transmission - when in manual guise they are a punchy, revvy, fuel-efficient car. Especially for a low-tech, SOHC design.
The car is a 1997 Mitsubishi Magna Advance. Absolutely 100% stock on half-bald tyres, and with close to half a tank of fuel. The clutch slips slightly at the beginning of the launch... which obviously led to a less than desirable start. And yes i hit the rev-limiter in first. Many of you will try to tell me that this is pointless and i should've shifted earlier. But i recorded two runs prior to this and shifted at 6000rpm - neither of the two were as quick as this one.
Please - no negative comments. It's not the fastest car in the world, that's for sure - but it gets me from A to B, with enough zap to make it fun to drive. Give me some pointers by all means. But any swearing or negativity will be removed immediately.
(The red square around the speedo indicates when the car actually starts accelerating. When the revs initially flick up, the clutch hasn't engaged yet).
