I've put about $4500 total on in car. That includes the cost of buying the car as well. It will be a bit more when all is said and done, but nothing compared to what I would have to put into a Honda, and I'll get far better results. I think repins just needs a good tune up as well. These bonnes are fast cars.

I paid $500 for my 92 but I'm still not sure what I will be into it for. I have a friend that wants to go 50/50 on the project so I'm waiting until the date we agreed on to get started. It could be rod bearings which would suck, but I think we'll be able to handle it either way. I hope it'* soon so I can go to the pet store and get the rebuild kit for my Mitsubishi/Chrysler

hmm so tell me, what kinda reliablity do these vehicles have (the Conquest/Starion) any major flaws (plastic intakes, or the infamous DSM timing jump)

Well they are cars that need attention. No plastic manifolds for sure,but it'* a car thats somewhat fine tuned. It really depends on what you want out of the car. If you want a driver I wouldn't modify it much, but if your looking for a racer you'll be busy. I think they are dependable if you know your way around the car. The most common problems I've heard are with the throtle body and injectors(there are only two). A good TB rebuild will solve most problems, and is very easy. Other than that most problems are related to a modified ride. You also have to remember that you are dealing with a turbo so any small problem can become a big problem real quick if you don't know what you are doing.

$900 is a good deal if the body is in good shape and the car runs. Also check the interior. There are two differnt type. Intercooled and non intercooled. Both have turbos. If this car has the fenders like mine it'* intercooled and prefered. All are RWD less at least one 4wd that'* in Japan. When you look at it take the intake off the turbo and put your finger on the shaft in the turbo that the propellers are on. It shouldn't move much if any from side to side. If it does the turbo is going bad. A stock replace ment would cost about $150 but not from a dealership. These cars aren't produced anymore so parts can be difficult and expensive to replace. I know $150 isn't much for a turbo but then that'* also an average of what it would cost from the trader board at my other car club. If you do get it I'll be happy to share all my knowledge with you and point you in the right direction for answers I don't have.
