: the DET is in! the car is running!
Jul 28, 03, 10:37 PM
just got home from the shop.
as of tonight, the DET and 5spd LSD are in the car.
updates and pictures to be posted soon, she should be out of the shop by wednesday with the full conversion (motor and transmission) as well as extra goodies.
Jul 28, 03, 11:29 PM
Kewl... can't wait to see what it looks like... Can you post and tell us how you like it? Is it a very noticeable difference? Please give us (me) info...
Jul 29, 03, 08:30 AM
Congrats!!! I can't wait to see it.
Jul 29, 03, 11:02 AM
Yeah, I definately want to hear about the results!
Jul 29, 03, 11:10 AM
Nice Ainsley... I knew you couldn't wait for some real horsepower... Just be careful and stay on top of the required maintenance ma! ;)
Jul 29, 03, 11:24 AM
congrats! what type of turbo and injectors are you running?
Jul 29, 03, 01:55 PM
damn, she hasn't been on the board but a month or so and allready has a 5-spd conversion a det swap... get some pics up and whats next in your plans??
Jul 29, 03, 08:01 PM
well, i drove her for the first time tonight.
it was unbelievable.
the motor is in, running, and running amazingly. the stock topmount fits under the hood perfeclty, even with my ac and everything in tact. woot.
the tranny is now a 5spd LSD tranny rather than an automatic. shifts beautifully, brand new clutch and it*s already chirping tires. although we did have to make a custom axle for the drivers side out of three different axles...
all that*s left is to adjust the idle and clutch cables, put the starter back on (we*ve just been jumping it) and replace the fuel pump with my walbro. and i have to fabricate a downpipe, she*s running with no exhaust right now =D sounds like a beeeeassst.
pictures will come as soon as i get my film developed, but i*m asbolutely in love with this car, and i can*t stop smiling.
Jul 29, 03, 08:14 PM
yep...it runs real nice...hear the turbo whistling around. just going to use this to post a question. On her tranny, there is two connectors coming out of it. One is for reverse....but what is the other one for? and does anyone know which connector is the reverse one? One connector seems to come out right near the shifter rod that goes into the tranny, and the other is on the front side towards the end of the tranny...
Jul 29, 03, 11:37 PM
isn't one the neutral position switch?
edit: one above the shift linkage should be the VSS connector, but that may have been from 94...
Jul 30, 03, 02:16 AM
That's awesome news about the swap. Congrats. Can I drive? :-p Anywho, the two bars, one is the shift control bar, the other is a shift stabilizer bar. The stabilizer bar just keeps the shifter still so it doesn't shake loose and pop out, not to mention help guide your shifts into gear.
Jul 30, 03, 02:34 AM
I was under the impression that bluebullet is asking about the sensors on the tranny....
Jul 30, 03, 11:13 AM
Jul 30, 03, 03:02 PM
As far as connectors, the one in the back (close to where shifter rod goes in tranny) is the one for the reverse light indeed...
Not sure about the one towards the front... :paranoid:
Jul 30, 03, 03:11 PM
Congrats. I think we need a lil video of the G flying by...
Jul 30, 03, 07:05 PM
because it was buggin' me :), I looked it up. The one near the shifter connections is the neutral position switch, the one near the "end" of the tranny is the reverse switch. And it looks like from 94+ there was a VSS (aka not cable driven speedo).
Look on page MT-6 in the FSM. :) (I have a 93 FSM instead of a 94).
Anyway, congrats on the motor!!! I bet its awesome!!
Jul 30, 03, 10:09 PM
thank you guys soooo much for that info, i*ll hook it up tomorrow.
as for the swap, well, the car is sitting in my driveway and i couldn*t be happier. i*ve got pics ready to post, but i have to resize them... i*ll put them in a new thread so people with dialup can avoid them =D
Jul 30, 03, 11:20 PM
so what does the neutral switch do? I know the DSMs have it...when u are coasting to a stop and the car is in neutral, it keeps the RPMs up a little because it thinks you are going to downshift or put it back into gear...and then about 3-4 seconds after a full stop, it finally brings down the idle...is that what it is for? if so, where do you connect it to? I dont think there is a connector on her harness down there..I'll hunt around when the car is up on the lift tomorrow and see if I can find something.
That would prolly explain the idle problem we were having...the car was staying at around 1300-1500 rpms, It idles now with the TPS adjusted somewhat and the distributor cranked full retard, but I bet I could advance the timing back up a little once the neutral switch is plugged in because the car will now idle where its supposed to be...
Jul 30, 03, 11:28 PM
As what it does I dunno. I was told once that if it breaks that your car won't start, but you've proved that wrong.
I'm sure if you hunt around you'll find the connector. ;)

It leaks and cost about $9 to replace. That is all I know about it.
Jul 31, 03, 10:55 AM
i just had the same thing replaced, both axle seals leaked on me, so i had them replaced when my clutch went in
Jul 31, 03, 12:19 PM
Congrats on the swap! read up for sure, make sure you didn't leave any stones unturned for sure... You don't want a blown motor or something after all this work... I've read bout it happening a few times now.... Nice work lady!

I'm confused, tranny neutral switch or the axle seals?
Aug 01, 03, 08:26 PM
we figured out the reverse wiring, so the lights work, but the neutral switch i guess cant work....when wired up it kills the car because its wired into the same circuit as the immobilizer. The car idles fine now...we found out what was causing the problem...the throttle cable was too tight, and out of adjustment range....bit of work with it cured the problem....
Aug 02, 03, 03:58 PM
Glad you guys figured it out!! =) I was talking to Ainsley yesterday and I was thinking to telll her to check the T-cable.... but we got caught up chattin' and it slipped my mind... I had asked my mech about these tranny connectors and Chris (93det) told me that 2 connectors on the tranny will be left untouched after a DET swap.... but as long as her DET's running... it's all good :)

Hey people I got an SR18 in my p11 and I wanna know if it makes sense putting turbo in it with all the other necessities? The SR20's here are freakin expensive and aside from that i don't quite know what else to do. I'm a newbie to this performance thing....:(
Aug 21, 07, 10:35 AM
holy moly is this tread old ... over 4 years to be exact
Aug 21, 07, 02:33 PM
I'm a turbo n00b, but I suggest that you make a new thread with your cars current setup. ie. number of miles? maintenance? tranny?
Many members have turboed their original motor and have had it running without problems. Good luck :)
Mar 25, 12, 08:39 AM
bump!!!! for updates, pics, yaya :)

ainsly was the first g20.net member I ever met in person. I came to check out her ride when she brought it to hot import nights in philly. I think she was going to school in philly than. i did give her a blue bird crank for free for her engine build.
I did get to test her p10 vs mine in NJ when I had bone stock avenier at 11 psi vs her bb with s4's dont know her boost.
was fun and gave me confidents in the health of my engine.
I remember her telling me my car was impresive latter but I never got to take her for a ride
I miss her and hope she is doing well
