First ebay 20g drag passes
I made 2 passes. On the first one, nearly everything that could go wrong
did. But I'm a persistent bastard. I fixed it all, found everybody and then
made this run. It wasn't until after I got home that I realized I had no
in-car video footage of the first run when I broke despite having set it
up... I kicked the alternator belt off no-lift-to-shifting into 4th gear
around 800 feet and coasted to a 13.3 at 82mph against a 10 second Mustang. Overheating with no power
steering I limped it back and put the belt back on, only burning myself 9
times, and then got back out and made this run. The guys in front of us
broke, too. I guess it was contagious? This run is on 93 octane pump
gas. I shouldn't have been in such a hurry. It left me a little
unprepared. You learn things about other things while doing things--is the
best I can explain it. It didn't knock at all, so clearly the new injectors
are working fine... but I didn't take time to burp the coolant system, so
it ran hot. My alternator belt was loose, and it bailed on me. I was
focusing on explaining the video (I deleted that scene from frustration)
rather than putting the car back together, and failed to plug in a very
important sensor. I would have caught it, but didn't get a chance to look
at the logs until I got home. I have to operate so many pieces of equipment
in addition to actually driving that it's very distracting. The guy in
my second race had a beautiful 1967 Dodge Dart, and he was a very good
sport! It was a great race where adrenaline is involved, and I was focused
but wary of whether or not the alternator belt would stay on. I really
appreciate the guys that keep old muscle alive. That car's almost 50 years
old. That's making history right there... He cut a great 60 foot after they
cleaned up the track, but I wish that car didn't break in his lane prior to
his pass if it was a problem for his run. I tried to leave nothing out
and keep it short & sweet. I was lucky to have a track-side cameraman for
the second race. Thanks Taylor! Having that sensor plugged in would have
left me much more confident in the log data and offer a much better
assessment of this turbo, but it is what
it is. Here it is...

Porting an eBay 20g turbocharger
The price of this turbo will make it a
popular purchase, so I figured I'd air out some tech about ways to improve
it. This thing is not for everybody. I wouldn't feel comfortable bolting
it on my car the way it comes out of the box. I could complain about its
flaws except that so far absolutely none of them have been a deal-breaker
for me. To me it's like an empty canvas. I promise to eat those words if
it happens, and share my poop. Usually I can easily correct these flaws
myself and so can you.
If this thing turns out to perform well with what I do to it... It could
easily be a cheap, quick ticket to an 11-second car. Something you could
do with a free running 1g, a hacksaw, and about $500 worth of fuel
upgrades. Yeah, that would be ridiculous, and I'm bolting it onto a
well-modified car... But that being possible speaks volumes for what a DSM
can really do.
This is no big deal to me. I'd rather guinea pig my car for you in HD so
you guys can decide whether or not you'd spend your money on this. Really
it's an experiment because this isn't my daily-driver, and it contributes
to building a better Colt.
Tools I used involve:
Milwaukee model ???? 1/4" straight-shaft electric DIY grinder
Cone and ball-shaped double-cut burs
180 grit high-speed flap wheel
Dremel with a flex-shaft and a tiny 320-grit flap wheel
a zip tie
10mm combination wrench
tiny flat-blade screwdriver (00) for the e-clip on the wastegate

Jamie's 92 Hyundai Elantra with bastard 4g63 swap
There's a history both behind this car, and the friendship with this
person. I met him 10 years ago following a random conversation that I
injected myself into between 2 strangers at an auto parts store. I had
just bought a '92 Civic CX with crap compression and was picking up some
service parts to keep it limping and useful while I built my DSM. I
overheard him mention "4g63" to somebody as I walked by, so I turned around
and introduced myself without any clue that he was one of the "realest"
people I've ever known.
What occurred for me in the following discussion was an awakening on my
part. He led me to an adjacent parking lot where an un-assuming Hyundai
Elantra sat. This isn't the one, but is one of many factory cars that he's
swapped a 4g63 into. What he managed to get through my big thick skull was
there were lots of great inconspicuous chassis that you can simply bolt a
4g63 into. Over time it became evident where you can find lots of "racing"
parts, from factory equipment on various mini-vans, station wagons, much of
the Hyundai line-up from '92-'95. During the "DSM Years", there were
plenty of cars from other manufacturers that made dynamite donors, and this
sparked my ability to be frugal in some of my ventures.
If you ever meet Jamie, expect his knowledge of car parts both inside and
outside the realm of Mitsubishi to be as unassuming on the surface as the
car in this video. He has true talent. Finds peace and happiness in a
junkyard full of decay, and skills that create useful high-performance art
from what many consider rubbish. Because he's already taken time walking
around with parts from one car and bolting them on to others to see if
they'll fit, worked as a machinist's apprentice rebuilding everything under
the sun, and done the tech work to analyze failures in all of it, he's
often my go-to guy for advice when things aren't working correctly. Many
times he's come through for me in a pinch and shed light on something I
didn't understand. That goes both for examples in the automotive domain,
and in real life when I've hit hard times. Many of my parts for the Colt
came from his past builds on various Mitsubishis and Hyundais. In fact...
many of my Colt parts have come from this very car.
He gave this chassis to somebody, and they returned it later because life
didn't let them finish it. I don't think it took even a month once he put
his mind to working on it to get it in this state, and it was
motorless-and-in-pieces. I can't wait to see these parts get bolted on
this car. I think we'll have a new textbook definition of sleeper when
1989 Mustang Drag Race, 10's on 76mm chinese knock off turbo
Jesse's 89 Mustang Dart 427
with On3 Performance bolt on turbo kit.
These passes were made with 6 broken rockers, whoops!
A few weeks earlier this car went 9.7 @137mph on the same
setup and we determined that was about all we were going to get out of it.
Time for an upgrade, final passes on this turbo.
New turbo Garrett 88mm. Getting Dynoed this Friday and then
off to the track to take the car into some new territory.
