The car looks way good. EX wheels are always a good choice.

Looks aggressive. Definitely need some flares though. The turbo setup does indeed look stock and I love that you kept all the accessories. The numbers sound really good. Makes me want to pick up another car for DSM things.

Damn those are some good scores. Those tail lights would have been triple that in a Cali pap.

Basics. But 40$ I知 not complaining They ride pretty good but the are to soft and require a lot of travel which makes my running problem even worse. I知 gonna try a frankinstine set up. Gonna take the coil springs off the tiens and use them with some Koni yellow and some eBay sleeves.

Can't beat the price! So i have Tein Super Streets. And they are too soft too. Most the web says it's the spring and not the shock. some have swapped it out for a stiffer spring but most (like me) just put up with it. And technically it's the UCA ramming off the body that only bothers me.

Well. Update I suppose. Lol. Got the bitch tuned!!!!!!! Blew it up day after whooooooa!!! Yeah ended up hurting cylinder 3. The spark plug wire was chaffing on the valve cover and shorted out lost spark for second and it ended up firing to late and boom! I知 pretty sure it痴 a ringland so I知 gonna pull thing apart and change the piston out maybe more. Gonna do compression test and see what I知 at. I知 gonna gap the rings out farther to help with the expansion

Ok so today I decided to rebuild the motor due to cylinder 3 only having 60 psi on the compression test. Here is what I found. After ripping into this motor I found that only cylinder 3 has extensive damage. Eaither way I replaced all 4 pistons /rings. From the looks of things I may have had a misfire at some point on cylinder 3 making the chamber extremely hot and causing the rings to expand to far and but each other. So in the end she broke a ring land as well as the second ring. As of now she is about half way to being completely rebuilt. All I have left is to put the head and timing which will only take me a couple hours. Heres some pics to show the damaged goods vs the new clean rebuild. Also gapped the living hell out these rings so this has way less chance of happening again.


Broke piston ringland literally just fell out along with ring


Broke ring


New/ used pistons from junk yard. No chips or cracks loose pins.


New pistons in the block





That’s pretty much it till tomorrow. Gonna finish her up nice so I can finally drive my car again. Next step is some tires!

If you ever get a wild hair to go pull pistons out of a car in the junkyard again, the G25A uses 85mm pistons and I'd be willing to bet that it uses a 30.55mm compression height, too. The Vigor has a 9.0:1 compression ratio and the 2.5TL is 9.6:1. All that with an 86.4mm stroke. So that done in a 95mm stroke application should be well North of 10.5:1. If you were looking for a cheap boost on low-end power.

Dude you kick ass! Question tho. Can I use the rods out of the g series too or am I gonna have to swap rods? I can稚 reallt find much info on the g series motors. Would be so nice I知 sure the ringlands are thicker too

I would doubt it. But if those pistons are 30.5mm compression height, like I would bet they are, then you don't need new rods. If they use a floating pin, which the available year models would suggest they didn't, then you would just order aftermarket rods anyway.


EDIT* It seems that the G25A uses a 138mm rod, as opposed to the 141.5mm rod in the F22A. No good for this engine.
