1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan at the Mission street legals racing an STi, Oct 14/11.

Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3700 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head. At the last Street Legals of the year, trying to run a 12 again but she's not cooperating, had computer issues all week and died this morning, managed to get her fixed but was cutting out as you can hear. Would die at the line then catch, 2.4 60 ft and ran a shitty 14.1 to his 13.7. Figured out my rev limiter was only set at 6K, not sure how when I set them to 8K. Never got a chance to go back out, dew set in and game over. Has been a frustrating year to say the least, sigh, here's hoping 2012 will be kinder.

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check out this article I wrote on the topic. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/diagnosing-noises-in-your-car Video on CV boot replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S-ofMoWsr0 The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay Dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

1984 Chevy van 6.2 diesel with a remote mounted turbo.
Got fed up of the gutless wonder so I put a remoted mounted turbo on it. Its an HX35 12 cm housing with a billet HX40 6 blade compressor wheel. No IC and I run around 20psi, it has new 6.5 turbo head gaskets and ARP studs. Also got tired of paying for fuel so I run WATF and anything that burns. It has the 4 speed 700R4 and 3.08 gears. Merging onto the freeway.

Jeep inline 6 engines are tough
4.0 Jeep Cherokee engine test. Engine had bad lower end/rod knock noise and was headed for the scrap yard so I decided to stick a board on the gas pedal and see how long it would last. Pretty tough engine.

1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan racing at Mission Raceway, Aug 5/2011
Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3620 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head. Just got it running with a newly ported head, tri flo cams and header. First time out, lots of tuning and playing, couldn't build Boost at the line. Ran a 16.9@84mph, 18 psi, retarded the cams by accident, oops.

1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan at Mission, Sep 14, wife in the passenger seat!
Having some fun, low Boost, just tuning, wife comes along for the ride, loved it. Ran a 14.7@91 mph with a 2.2 60ft, having trouble building Boost at the line.





1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan vs a Porsche GT3? at the Mission Street Legals, Sep14/12
At the Mission track Street Legals, not sure what he had, but last race of the night, running 18 psi, still tuning-new setup with a new torque converter, stock head with some custom stage one cams, GT35R turbo, got the fueling right but couldn't build Boost at the line so kept playing with the staging limiter, guess I got it right, I left at around 12 psi, cut a 1.9 60ft to his 2.1, my reaction time was .2XX, his was .6XX. He left right after, not sure if it was due to me beating him to the 1/8 mile or he'd had enough, doesn't matter, it was fun. He didn't want to line up with me though, he kept trying to get someone else to go, lol, but the volunteer wouldn't let him. I ran a 13.9@94 to his 11.98@128





1989 Dodge Turbo Caravan beats a Viper at the Mission street legals, Sep16/11
Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3700 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head. Playing at the Street Legals, just fixed the trans, no tuning, so trying to tune tonight. Ran a 14.0@96 mph. Viper guy was NOT happy, almost got to race him again but he dodged the bullet. Later on, wouldn't even look at my direction, lol.
