  1. Nice to be back...

    Thanks! If anyone knows someone who is selling a RIPPMOD supercharger for V6 eclipse, let me know....
  2. Nice to be back...

    Hi! Long time... No don't have a lancer again... But missed this place... I do have a Mitsu again, now my project is a 2006 eclipse GT. So in a nutshell... Past project...
  3. Nice to be back...

    New project... 06 eclipse gt Changed the stereo, to have Bluetooth Ordered stuff: Lowering kit New tail and head lights Looking for: CF hood RIPPMOD supercharger
  4. O.K. Then I will start this thread in the hope of accomplishing a badass car that I will be proud of! I will attempt to turbo my 2010 lancer SE CVT (Canadian model Hey!) Its a mix of ES and GTS. It is equipped with the 4B11 but has some comfort features of the GTS. The first thing I want to do is take care of the CVT. First I will try and upgrade my CVT with the GTS sportronic. It is rumoured to be a direct swap since I do have all the wires to plug it in...Anyway, it is ordered and payed for (160$ for sportronic...good deal if it work!) and might even consider installing the paddle shifter at a later date. Second, I am looking out for a transmission oil cooler/warmer from the GTS because mine doesn't have the extra fitting and cant put an external oil cooler. I will post pictures ASAP... Thanks and any advise will be appreciated. WHY do this? Because I want too!.....Plain and simple! I will base my work on Angeal and dadsgst posts on turbo charging so the credit will actualy be theirs!
  5. How To: Install Evo X Camshafts

    There is a small screw in the timing chain cover covering the tensioner, Unscrew it, and you have to insert a small screwdriver in there to release the tensioner. Its easier done with 2 person. One "fiddles" with the tensioner while the other uses the prybar to push in the tensioner.
  6. Naw its in the garage... I am deployed at the moment.... back in spring... Going esthetic first this time... got underglow for it... well the kit I had for the lancer and never installed...lol
  7. Why'd you turbo your lancer?

    Granted, it's not the most economical way, but....... I STILL MISS MY LANCER! lol
  8. Why'd you turbo your lancer?

    Why'd you turbo your lancer? Because I could...... Its not all about the $$$, its was the journey there, the hobby. It was as fun for me to build it than to drive it. difference between putting bolt on mud flaps and ripping your engine out and really creating something from scratch. Its not always pretty, but its part of the game. Did all the work myself, made some mistakes, manage to do good things too. In the end, I was proud of myself and my car, especialy when I heard the first PPSSSSHHHHHHH from the BOV. For unbelievers, I had a CVT and it was boosted.
  9. Turbo Question???

    Older eclipse... 95-99....
  10. Miss my lancer..... Hard to start from scratch....
  11. O.K. This is the DIY GTS shifter swap. I didnt see it on this forum so here we go... After this, you will be running on 6 virtual gears, the tranny's belt location will be stable, not readjusting all the time. It will make the car feel sportier, more responsive. For around 200$, its a awsome conversion to make. CAUTION DE models and different years may affect the install. I know for a fact that some DE models do not have the proper wiring and post 2010 lancer as not been tried to my knowlegde. Check all the wires before (PIC 3). If all the wires are there, the programming should also be in there. Just be sure that you have a possibility of returning the shifter if it doesnt work. All you need is a used or new GTS shifter assembly. Cost: 160$ Duty (I'm in Canada...) 19$ Tools needed: Socket wrench with 1/2" socket ( Actualy, I think its a 12mm but I lost mine...) Small screw driver Fine longnose plyers And 30 min... This is the shifter I bough, found it on http://car-part.com/ Do your shopping because they are not all advertise as GTS shifter with sportronic, some say (like the one I found) Automatic...Ask them to confirm and if possible to get a pic of the inside of the vehicule. LKG did this and sent me a pic, reducing the margin of error. Best bet is a local scrapyard...if you find one there, you will see the actual shifter, you can even do it there to be sure it works properly and give them your old one or return it if it doesn't work. So there it is, 30 minutes and BAM....Fun by the million...
  12. Thanks.. Will still show up once in a while... Here is my new project.... Was looking for a Ralliart or evo x, but unfortunately, I needed a automatic car since I can only afford one car at the moment and the wife drive only automatic. Next car WILL be an evo... in a few years...
  13. Sorry Guys... Been out of touch for a while, moved because of the military... This is the end of the road for my lancer, its been a bumpy ride, mostly good times though. I don't know if I actually achieve a badass CVT lancer like my title says, but it I did try... I have learned so much fooling around with it, and you guys here gave me advise, trick and a moral boost when I needed it. Both the Lancer a nd KIA are now gone.. THANKS PL! Here is my last picture of the lancer... I think it a cool picture... (BTW, I did secure the passenger and scene, before taking it... we where waiting for the firefighters
  14. Well here is the CVT transmission cooler install: -Mishimoto oil cooler with fan (or other brand) -GTS transmission oil cooler/warmer -oil hose AN6... -misc. fittings and bolts... -ENEOS CVT oil!!!!!! Remove airbox, batterie, tray (which is a real pain in the but, there are 12 mm bolt under the tray and they are HARD to reach!!!) and this is what you see: REMOVE OIL!!!!!!!! ES oil cooler/warmer removed and replaced by GTS one. Notice the difference...GTS has 2 external adapter for oil cooler....ES and DE don't! When you unplug the coolant lines, BEWARE!!! It will leak coolant from the tube to the radiator!!!! And its a BIG leak so be prepared!! I had to plug the hose with my thumb and finish the GTS oil cooleréwarmer install with one hand!!!!!!! THAT WAS ALSO A PAIN!!!! (I was alone..) Mishimoto oil cooler install. Depending on how you install the cooler, the fan will be facing in or out. Mine is facing the back cause I opted for a "puller" type fan. If you want the fan to push the air, make it face the front of the vehicule. When you plug the fan, the PULLER type will have the BLUE wire on the POSITIVE of the battterie, for the PUSHER fan the BLACK will be on POSITIVE instead Install hoses... Put in the oil...good to go...NO MORE WHINE in the tranny and NO MORE SLIP This is the oil I used for my CVT transmission...Hopefully will be better than the CVT-j1 and j4... AWSOME!!!! So here it is!!!!! Enjoy!
  15. Cvt Turbo... Diy!

    DISCLAIMER! This setup as worked on my 2010 lancer SE CVT. There is no guaranty that it will work on other years. Some later years have more security in the ECU preventing tuning. Also, improperly done, I can do serious damage to the engine and transmission. DO AT YOUR OWN RISK. I took the risk though and love it!!!!!! lol So here we go.... My CVT turbo install and how to.... First off, so far so good. Those of you who didn’t believed it possible, hopefully I (and a few others..Blizzard25 get on with it! lol) we will prove that a reliable turbo setup is possible. The ultimate question people have is....part list.. so here we go: For a CVT, It is vital to mod you tranny setup first or kiss it goodbye... 1-for those of us who don’t have a external transmission cooler setup, you need to get a GTS cooler/warmer...mitsu part number: 2920A141 and that’s where I got it. (oor googlr the part number and you will see other distributers) Filter is: 2824a006, and got it from dealer... 2-external oil cooler. There is different company, but I strongly suggest one with a fan. I got the mishimoto one. 3-an6 hose, I got 6 feet, just in case. 4-Transmission oil temperature gauge. 5-Better oil…I used ENEOS cvt oil but Red Line makes one too… (might try that one on my next oil change) If you look closely, there is a coolant line going from the radiator, to the oil cooler/warmer. So to be on the safe side, I suggest the installation of a better radiator since with the turbo, it will run even hotter, and heat is very bad for our tranny. 6-evo x radiator (oem or in my case, I got a 2 row aluminium racing radiator, and also upgraded the fans , shroud and Silicone EVO X radiator hoses. Turbo setup: -ralliart complete turbo setup (td04hl) *turbo, exhaust manifold, O2 housing, downpipe, gaskets, M10 X 1.25 turbo STUDS if not included with turbo… intercooler, intercooler piping) -135 degree 2.5” tube to connect LICP tube to throttle body (EVO x and Ralliart throttle body is at 0 degree angle, ours is at 45 degree so it wont fit directly) -4”min aluminium pipe to connect 135 degree with LICP -stock ralliart wastegate -"EVO X" sparkplug -modified 2.5" OEM works but I got an e-bay special exhaust since I was to cut it to mke it connect with downpipe…more on that later -OEM intake complete or aftermarket…I got a injen cold air intake, but DON’T get that, it doesn’t fit with the external transmission oil cooler setup, I had to cut and butcher it and still doesn’t fit properly. I will have to address that later, get the a short RAM air… -manual boost controller (if you plan on rising boost later on I got a blox racing) -an6 coolant hose -an8 oil return braded hose -an8 x2 90 degree braided hose end -an8 male TD04HL oil drain adapter flange -an8 steel weld-in bung -an4 braided oil feed line -an4 90 degree braided hose end -an4 braided hose end -an4 TD04HL oil feed adapter flange -an4 female to 3/8 npt female adapter -stock ralliart BOV or aftermarket if you wish.. I got a HKS ssqv4 bov -EVO X injectors -EVO X 3 bar MAP sensor -AEM wideband A/F ratio gauge with sensor -Prosport boost gauge -Universal vacuum "T" junction -Misc nut and bolts.. -Univesal engine oil cooler, not a must but since we are running hotter than an evo or ralliart, and they gave it, seemed logical to do so… -an 10 braided hoses with fitting and adapter…mine came with the kit. -PROPER sandwich plate. Don’t use the one to install sensors, use the ones for remote oil coolers.. THEY ARE DIFFERENT! -Prosport engine oil pressure gauge Options: -EVO X or Ralliart intake manifold with throttle body (if you decide to use this, you won’t need the 135 degree tube) -EVO X or Ralliart camshaft TUNING There is 2 ways of doing this… a-GSR (manual) EVO X rom or the same year.. (will need to be tuned down…have codes, loose mivec. I ran with this for a month un-tuned and no issues. But DON’T RACE IT UNTILL YOU HAVE IT TUNED!!! YOULL BLOW YOUR TRANNY and ENGINE!!! This mean its relatively safe to drive to your tuner. To reactivate mivec, you will need a EVO X ECU but it works without MIVEC fine… b-Get a custom build rom from your own vehicule (if you are good with HEX file and such…which I’m not, so I had an expert doing it. One thing to remember, GSR rom works but have NO cvt information whatsoever in it…so your choice, both work fine. Now on with the install: If you don’t strengthen the transmission, don’t boost… CVT transmission cooler install: -Mishimoto oil cooler with fan (or other brand)-GTS transmission oil cooler/warmer-oil hose AN6...-misc. fittings and bolts...-ENEOS CVT oil!!!!!! Remove airbox, batterie, tray (which is a real pain in the but, there are 12 mm bolt under the tray and they are HARD to reach!!!) and this is what you see: REMOVE OIL!!!!!!!! ES oil cooler/warmer removed and replaced by GTS one. Notice the difference...GTS has 2 external adapter for oil cooler....ES and DE don't! When you unplug the coolant lines, BEWARE!!! It will leak coolant from the tube to the radiator!!!! And its a BIG leak so be prepared!! I had to plug the hose with my thumb and finish the GTS oil cooleréwarmer install with one hand!!!!!!! THAT WAS ALSO A PAIN!!!! (I was alone..) Mishimoto oil cooler install. Depending on how you install the cooler, the fan will be facing in or out. Mine is facing the back cause I opted for a "puller" type fan. If you want the fan to push the air, make it face the front of the vehicule. When you plug the fan, the PULLER type will have the BLUE wire on the POSITIVE of the battterie, for the PUSHER fan the BLACK will be on POSITIVE instead Install hoses... Put in the oil...good to go...NO MORE WHINE in the tranny and NO MORE SLIP This is the oil I used for my CVT transmission...Hopefully will be better than the CVT-j1 and j4... Engine external oil cooler... There are other ways, but this is how I did it... The goods: -10 row oil cooler -AN10 braided lines with appropriate fittings -sandwich plate -OIL!!!! As an extra: -Oil pressure gauge -Oil temperature gauge I chose to install the pressure gauge, but not the temp gauge... Finf the best spot for the install (remove youir front bumper.....) Since I have to install a CVT cooler on the drivers side, I chose to install it on the passenger side right in front of the washer fluid container and luckily, I have a vent in my C1 bumper right in front of it... If you are manual, I would suggest the drivers side for install...more room! The install.....and braket-making... Fitement is the most important...Be sure your bumper fit on top of it before you plug ANY hoses....Would suck if you install everything, put the oil in the engine, only to find out you can put your bumper back on!!! Make the brackets... I chose some metal rods with holes already drilled in, paited them black to match the car... Dry fitment pf the cooler.... After I was sure of fitment, I installed The hoses and try to have them not to tight. When the oil will circulate, the hoses might move because of pressure. Nice curve is better because you dont want to "kink" them to impede the oil flow. You can do this before, but I drained my oil at this point just in case I needed something at my local speed shop... Drain oil... Install sandwich plate Attach oil filter (I chose to install a new one since at the same time...I did a complete oil change..lol) Attach lines Attach sensor from gauge... NOTE: I put some teflon tape on EVERY fitting and screws... Drop in the oil... Note: It WILL take more oil than usual...Because of the cooler... When you put the oil, the cooler will NOT be full of oil, the engine needs to run a bit for the oil pump to fill the cooler. So fill the oil to the marker on the dipstick. Start the engine, let it run a few seconds (DONT REV THE ENGINE!!!!) Shut it down, check your oil, fill again, restart the engine and re-check dip stick. Redo these step untill proper amount of oil is in... CHECK FOR LEAKS!!!!! Intall gauge wires to gauge semsor... Now the install is complete, DO A TEST DRIVE!!!!! AND CHECK FOR LEAKS AGAIN!!!!!! NEXT POST... Turbo install...
  16. Having Fun With My Car

    Actually, in daylight, it's not that bad...
  17. Cvt Turbo... Diy!

    Best place is evolutionm.net.....most ralliart owner do a td05 swap and sell the original setup.
  18. Help build my lancer

    Then, if you really want to go through with it, I would be glad to guide you through it, so would Transferdrift. We both gone through it...
  19. Starter Cranking But Not Starting!

    Could be when you checked your fuses, you pushed a bit on them and replaced them so the electric current started to flow again..glad your back on the road... I would check for "vert de gris" on the contacts you never know
  20. Help build my lancer

    Hi dude.... Since it is your only car, first car too, I would first do some basic mods. If you never worked on cars it would be wise not to throw yourself in a project like boosting right away. I also don't know how stable financially but I always recommend having a cash cushion with enough for a engine replacement (or at least a second car...). Love your enthusiasm, don't get me wrong, if you have the time, space and know how...it's an awesome project. I would just hate for you to have a 10000$ lawn ornament because something went wrong.
  21. And guess which cylinder it is......
  22. Not really, downshifted and floored it to avoid being put into the wall on the highway by a cargo truck.... Must of gotten a boost spike...
