Well, if you would look in the For Sale forums, you would have saw DJ KOS's GT for sale for 1,000, its not too far from you, hes in Parkersburg WV. Well worth the drive an you'd have plenty of money left to fix it an turbo it, its a low milleage swift too.

Seriously how about a custom made DOHC head for a 3 cyl and also headers are a great idea and a true cold air intake is a good idea as well. How about some sort of tuning chip for the 3cyl where you can switch from good mpg to high performance. also lets make a stroker kit that takes our engine to 1.3 liters:)

any progress on a economy package? Do you have any plans to make a header?

The economy packages are ready to go, and will be custom suited to each customers situation. The cam testing is completed, and the MPG increases were in line with what can be expected.
This is what thr guy testing it said about the cam

Quote:
in 5 tanks of fuel, the economy cam alone showed an improvement of 8%-9% in fuel mileage. The biggest benefit being in the way that it provided superior low end power, and better drivability to the heavier 97 car that it was installed in.
He is very happy with it, and said that even if the mileage was no better, the driveablity made it a worthwile installation.

Post subject:  diesel conversion kit

This may be outside your area if what you really like to do is improve on the gas engine that came with these cars but I would be interested in a diesel.

I know of one company that makes a diesel conversion kits for the 1.3 that was put in the Samurai using a Volkswagen diesel (turbo or non). I've talked with them about a kit for the Geo but they told me that they didn't have time for R&D right now. He did say that the flywheel would need to be changed and the oil pan reconfigured.

After a sucessful conversion to diesel then I would like to see a kit like Banks makes for the big diesels where you could dial-up your desired power output. Position 1 could be stock for good gas mileage and position 4 (or higher) could be max output.

This car could be a real sleeper then.

Your idea reminds me of the 05' Golf TDI that goes with the Calgary Sports Car club. He is making some SERIOUS power out of it, and just plumes of smoke whenever he gets on the gas :lol:

you should check and see if he's using propane injection, it's like adding nitrous for a diesel engine, the only downfall of a tdi (or an diesel) is the limited rpm range and the "so much torque it can tear itself apart" thing ...

I remember TRUCKS doing up a dodge cummins. Propane injction added 100hp-ish and 125ft/pnds of torque. Diesels are cool, to bad only VW really makes one I could get into (in a car anyways). What I'm pretty sure he has done n1tr0 is just cranked the boost WAY up.

Speaking of diesel, this guy did a 10 HP diesel conversion into a Metro:

A good "cheep" header would be great!

You know, how about a catback exhaust. It seems like it would be easy to manufactur.

BTW, i dont know if some one suggested this, i was lazy and didnt want to read four pages of suggestions

How about a 4 wheel disc brake kit that will bolt directly on to our T3's, bigger if possible. :D
Polyurethane engine mounts, ported & polished intake manifolds, and an upgraded fuel rail. I had more but can't think of them all right now.

I looked at that, as well as lowering springs. The problem was that I would need to have so many made to get a decent price, that I may end up with
a) a huge pile of parts that may not sell, and
b) Alot less cash in my bank account.
In the end, the springs would likely sell, but the catbacks would probably sit, because many exh. shops will do the same thing for about what I would charge, but that would be installed.
To give you an idea, I had to put out a min. of $1000 to get a decent price on the underdrives, and thats only a $50 retail part. I also thought they would sell, so it didn't bother me.
If I had cheaped out, you would be paying $70-$75 for them.
The springs would have been a min of $3k

I wish.
No time. It looks like it will be a winter project.

So, did the headers become a winter project?

For a few reasons, no.

What would you guys think about a high velocity intake? Like adding a stack, but one that'll fit under the hood. Would any of you guys be interested?

Author:  90Metro [ Mon Mar 13, 2006 1:09 pm ]
Post subject: 

High velocity intake? I would buy any bolt on that is reasonable priced and made measureable improvements in torque or MPG. The intake would need to be $100 or less to be reasonably price in my opinion.
