    Have you disconnected the cable from the sensor on the top of the gear box. the last car i looked at with the same issue had completely corroded terminals on the out put shaft sensor and they just turned to green dust when the cable was disconnected. the issue was a verted bonnet and the water draind collects in the output shaft speed sensor divot in the top of the gearbox. the moral of this story is don't use a vented bonnet in the rain. You can get water collecting in the divot for...

    It's effectively a special edition yes. Nothing different mechanically but some aesthetic differences. I'd suggest starting an owners thread with some photos and we can help dissect your car!

    The factory MAF is not a blow through MAF it is not designed to be pressurised. i have never seen anyone try to pressurise the MAF so i would not know if it would work or not. but it is an expensive mistake to make if it just splits the body open or bursts carman vortex sensor bit. i have seen a Z32 MAF being used in a blow through configuration but but again the plastic housing would rupture and had to be replaced for a metal one. i do not know if that type of maf will work on a 6a13...

    Good luck! I'd be fascinated to see how you get on. People have certainly bought stuff from RPW but not many have got to the need of forged internals so I wouldn't say that there is exhaustive knowledge. Please let us know what you do, photos are always good too! :thumbsup:

    EC5A is a 4WD 2.5l saloon. SYGF2 suggests a super VR4. (Do you have a bit of factory spoiler kit, Recaro front seats, red carpet, purple highlights on the backlit dash?) All super VR4's are mechanically a prefacelift auto with AYC, the "nice" bits are all bolt on things purely for cosmetics. It is Hamilton Silver (A71) and is actually a second week of December 1997 car, although that is when it got to the end of the production line so more than likely was never driven until 1998. Does...

    I have no idea! I will dig out a cable and download evoscan again at some point but I can't promise how soon.

    I don't remember anyone doing that. Most common is just to swap the 6A13TT in instead.

    On the AYC switch change, this was at the 2nd facelift. May 2000 build date. Can't help on the rest!

    i believe the cable you have is open port 2.0 not open port 1.3 openport 2.0 has the pin connected. have you tryied to use the data logging side of evoscan rather than the actuators side of evoscan. next time adam is round at mine i will plug my evoscan setup plugged into adams car. to see what happens. it would be really odd if the actuators only worked with PFL cars. i have a reflashable engine ecu in my car, it is a MH7202F / H8539F. the facelift ECU is MH7203FA / H8539FA not sure...

    Curious! I've never used Evoscan for it though, only ever the four wheels in the air approach. But checking which pump it was was just my thought process since I recall you didn't get much/any out when you tried the latter.

    I wonder if something needs 'reversing' or the like? If you replace the pressure switch on the AYC pump, you need to know whether it's PFL or facelift so Malc (@mpbvr4) can supply the correct switch. Which makes me think - was your replacement pump from a PFL or FL? I wonder if this is potentially the cause of your current issues?

    I think that black interior is the most common interior, followed by the beige that comes with the tan leather, so any dark interior rear side cover should be a match.

    I love the little tease of the VR-M in the corner! That's definitely a rare car. I believe New Zealand also had 'NZ New' VR-4s through Mitsubishi dealers /yes

    it is a good thing you are learning mechanic skills, you will need them to keep a VR4 on the road with out crippling you bank account. they have a high maintenance cost and it is only going to get high as more and more parts are stopped being produced by mitsubishi.

    i took the car out for drive yesterday and the central locking now works perfectly. i did not remove battery connection, maybe it just needed a little time to sync with the ETCS system or whatever that cream coloured box is down by your right foot in the drivers footwell. in my case it was the failing actuator in the driver door lock. so it need replacing. it now has a really strong lock unlock motion, one might say it is a tad violent now. but that is because i had every door card off...

    i think the after market intercoolers most people fit are 600mm x 300mmx 76mm this is the core size the end tanks make it about 760mm total width i think it is the height that is the most difficult dimension to accommodate 300mm so it might be tight and hang down a bit lower than normal plus there is always the issue of fitting it behind the front crash bar you have to do some modifying of the the vertical bonnet latch mounting point. but you can get all this install info from the other...

    It looks like you have not set up evoscan correctly and installed the correct FTDI drivers. you should be able to click the start data logging button and the the event log: box saying link established goes green. if you can't do that than you have not setup evoscan correctly. did you install the FTDI divers after evoscan was installed. evoscan comes with some crap old drivers that don't work any more. you have to install the new drivers after evoscan is installed. i am using windows...

    ah i see in your picture the clip is orange and you push the clip away from the open part of the clip by rotating it clockwise and it will pop off the rod and the rod will pull out forwards.
