Default Some questions on SC and Suspension

First off, what changed for the L67 from 92-93 to 94-95? Would you be able to put a 94-95 Supercharger et al. onto a 92-93 engine without changing the PCM and would it run ok and give you the extra 20hp? If not, is there a custom PCM/chip that could be bought/made?

Next question on Suspension. How much to the Energry Suspension components help? What parts would I need to buy? and what are the part numbers for those parts? I was looking at them briefly on the way out of autozone the other day and they had a lot of them.

Thanks in advanced.

I think willwren posted the end link info in a few threads...search around as well the thread above details it well.

On the 92-94 changes on SC, willwren put the 94-95 coated rotors into his 93 SC. To my knowledge the major differences are the coating (teflon?) and the size of the pulley.

There isn't a 20hp difference between them in reality. Maybe 10 or 15 tops. The 93 SSEi was underrated from the factory (they never changed/updated the rating despite the differences in between the 92 and 93).

The ONLY differences are epoxy coated rotors (higher VE), and a slightly larger TB diameter.

In order to do this you MUST use an AFC controller. Something I'd rather avoid. Which is why I'm building a hybrid SC instead.

For the endlinks, Autozone sells nearly everything you need, and all 4 corners should run you about $50 total. Money well spent, and you WILL notice the difference.

So the suspension is a good idea i take it. how hard would this be to do and how long should it take to do? Contrary to popular belief, I can't be out of a vehicle for long as I only have one car here in Rochester.

As for the supercharger, how are you making it a hybrid? Also, I know the AFC is used to change the air fuel mixture, but is there a way to edit the PCM code in the 93 to tune it for the proper mixture? If not, I think I might start looking into this. I have a friend with a chip burner and some pretty decent knowledge with tuning Honda ECU (runs a 98 Turbo Civic converted to OBD1) as well as another friend who wrote his own program for his WRX. I know it is a long shot, but could be a fun project.

Your MAF sensor is the weak spot. That'* where the AFC comes in. In order to do this with PCM coding, you'd have to change the MAF sensor to a higher range unit, then code it into the PCM.

By hybrid, I mean 95 rotors in my ported and polished 93 M62, with a 93 TB (although heavily ported TB). The idea is to use the stock 93 MAF and avoid using an AFC Calibrator. And no, this isn't an easy task. The SC must be TOTALLY disassembled, and it'* VERY difficult to get them back together with the proper gear and rotor backlash.

JimmyFloyd, If you needed any help with the sway bar end links, let me know. I live over in Byron (about 30 minutes west of RIT). I've got a garage should have all of the tools required to replace your end links here already.

Thanks. I might have to take you up on that. What would your availability be after 5:30 weekdays, or sunday the 24th? That'* about the only time I am free. I will be looking into the parts tomorrow.

I'm almost always home anyway right now... I'm waiting for my new employer to get me the paperwork to sign... Anyway, yeah, let me know and I'll be sure to have everything (including a grinder with cutoff wheel) here at my/your disposal to make short work of replacing those end links.

Let me know.

Endlinks aren't too bad if you have the right tools for the possible PITA it can be. Took me a while to get some of my bolts off when I changed them. Some I just went ahead and broke instead of trying to unscrew the hex nuts.
