I hope to god he replaced the clutch. The older srt4's have a horrible design flaw where instead of having the flexplate heat up and warp and stop working alltogether, it grenades and takes out the transmission and sometimes the intake manifold. There are horror stories all over the internet.

As for putting in a different computer it should all work fine if it's the same year. I've heard of people switching ecus to see if the ecu was the problem. It sounds like he has a decent amout of money into the car so instead of going with the factory ecu have him buy an aem ems. It's a stand alone performance based aftermarket computer. If you want to have full control over your engine a stand alone ecu is the way to go.

There are also cheaper ones but aem is one of the best and pefered by most tuners.

If he has any problems have him join that forum, fixya is more for generic questions. I'm sure that forum will have more than enough information for your son.

your issue is a boost leak check all the boost pipes making sure the pipes are on properly and the clamps are fastened and seated and position correctly.start with the pipe from the airbox to the turbo. Then the pipes from the turbo to intercooler from intercooler to intake throttle body.

Hi iv got an 02 2 liter transit 52 reg iv got diesel poring out ov injector pipes but wont start even with a tow if I take intake pipe off and spray wd40 down it will try and start as I said iv got loads...

if this is a common rail diesel then the pump will not be producing sufficient pressure to operate the injectors. There will be fuel at the injectors but not the required pressure (20.000 +psi )
if it is a in-line pump or rotary pump there may be a problem with the pump timing

Is there anyone who has added turbo on a 1999 Subaru Legacy GT 2.5 liter?

I would do a Google search on this. If you add a turbo you must make many other changes to the engine management system, bigger capacity fuel injectors, hight capcity fuel pump, different cylinder head gaskets improvements to the transmission and so on. You can't just bolt it on.

Can I put a turbo in to my 1996 mitsubishi eclipse rs???

Im going to guess that you have the 420A engine 2.0L 4cyl non-turbo engine. They make the turbos for your car for the ones that come with a stock turbo that means that yes you can add a turbo. BUT it also means thats not the only thing your going to have to do to it. Better heads for the heat and power, bigger exhaust, FINE tuning so you dont blow your engine. It will eventually get pretty pricey, i recommend trading for a model with a stock turbo since adding a bigger faster turbo is a much easier and cheaper process.

Grommett fell down intercooler charge-pipe on my 03 PT Cruiser. if I disconnect upper charge pipe and rev engine/spool up turbo will it blow grommett out or do I have to disconect the whole thing to locate...

If it was my car I would be tearing it down because I couldn't afford to buy a new turbo. Maybe it will come out if you spool up the turbo but if it doesn't there will be a new turbo in your future. Hope this helps.

I was driving and suddenly my car lost power,to drive uphill i had to change down to the 2nd gear

If your car is turbo charged check for a blow-out piece of the high pressure pipe or a loose joint somewhere between the turbo charger and the intake manifold.

How many bolts hold on the turbo on a 1996 F350 powerstroke

if you are trying to ask the number of bolts just that hold down the turbo itself there are four.. but if you are asking about how many bolts need to be removed from the turbo to remove it there are three clamps one for intake from air filter,another for intake coming from compressor to the intake on the engine and another for the down pipe for the exhaust. but to remove turbo you will need to remove air intake with filter and tubes going to that along with the down pipe being popped off and pushed over, the intake for engine removed and put aside as well a few misc. little electrical parts

Turbo spooling too high

Sounds like the gate valve is stuck. This valve dumps excess pressure when the turbo makes it.

Hi, I have a 2.0HDI Expert which was doing the exact same thing as yours, blowing thick black smoke, sluggish and loss of power on gradients, a hissing sound and surging. I replaced the air flow meter but that didn't help. I was told to replace the turbo but a turbo expoert told me not to as it would blow white smoke if it was faulty. I was then told to replace the injectors but a diagnostic test showed them to be functioning fine. I was then told to look at the intercooler which had thick sludge at the lower left pipe. I replaced it today - Sunday 12th July and it is now driving like a new van. It now pulls me up gradients with ease in 4th and 5th instead of having to drop gear to get to the top. I got a replacement from Euro Car Parts for £147 inc VAT. To tell if this is your problem, look through the gaps in the lower section of the bumper at what looks like the radiator and look for sludge over the inside of the bumper and all over the pipe where it joins the back of the radiator (intercooler). Also open the bonnet and look down behind the grille for the same sludge. Hope this sorts it for you. Barry, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
