    Im with Demon on this one, anything with a Cosworth YB 200 Block is it for me. 
     
    Then of course if money is no object, you could always pick up the Audi Quattro Sport. A cossie sounds the most aggressive for all 4 cyl turbo applications, but that 5 cyl audi is another animal.
     
    That Lancia Delta was amazing too, shittt Id take all 3 hahahah

    SVTDEMON reacted to Rocco De Luca in 98 contour 2.5 CD4E Transmission Shifting Problems   
    I reopened my transmission and found that the rod that runs from the selector lever to the manual valve of the valve body, was not connected.  It must have fallen out when I removed the valve body to replace the solenoid pac (to access and remove the electrical connector).  I once again unbolted the valve body and reconnected this rod to the manual valve. At this point I have succeeded in repairing the transmission back into its state of malfunction instead of total failure.  If I had to guess, valve body would be the next culprit. . . the wife wants me to sell it since I just bought another project.  I want to try a new valve body.  Yes, I'm an idiot who has thrown good money after bad but, this has become personal.  There is no cloudiness in the oil, there are no metal shavings.  That suggests that nothing has started banging and the frictions are not letting loose.  I feel I MUST try a valve body.  If I gain nothing else from this experience, it is knowledge.  Now, I'm hoping that if someone ever comes across this page, they will at least see what the problem ISN'T and will not waste their money as I have thus far.

    SVTDEMON reacted to CrewChiefPro in Hello is there anybody out there?   
    I will be staying for the winter in San Diego after the racing season ends.  I will be there until around April.  I doubt the turbo Contour will be with me since we bring a different car in the race car trailer usually but you never know.
     
    We will stay in an RV park near the ocean, not sure of the name right now.

    It was truly a celebration of life and in conversations with his wife she mentioned many times how he loved the Contour community and being part of it.
     
    He will be missed but on an up note his 14 1/2 yr old son Payton is looking forward to taking part in our group activities and when able plans to drive his dad's SVT.

    I posted this on CEG as well.  The power cable was the issue, appears to have been damaged by something metal kicked up by the tires.
     
    Replaced the power cable from the battery in the trunk to the engine harness and the performance is back to what a built 3.0 turbo should be :)

    There is a series of "checks" that are listed in this forum. Search for these and start there. I am being brief, but promise further assistance once you find this info. It covers checks of the fans themselves, relays and then ends up with the wiring. Really good stuff.

    SVTDEMON reacted to tmrmathias in What can be done with the heads on my st200? & i am going to build a true dual exhaust, some Q´s about that   
    Hi!
     
    I am very satisfied with my ST, but i want to unleash some more power from it. 
    The obvious things i will do is;
     
    a real good cold air intake with filter down in front of the wheel.
     
    A true dual exhaust with H pipe(?) from the manifolds all the way back with just two mufflers at the rear.What dimesnion should i build it in? I am thinking 2" is sufficient, or should i build it in 2.25"? 2,5" is to much that i am quite shure on.
     
    AND, what can i do to the heads? is there some here on that have ported some SVT/ST heads? Are bigger valves easily obtainable?
     
    I read on some forum that it is possible to use the 3L,s valves? What dimension are the original valves in the SVT head?
     
    Can i get any good out of matchporting the UIM/LIM combo? 
     
     
    What more can i do that is usual practice to unleash the power of this wonderfull engine.
     
    The beemer six was my favorite engine before, but now this engine is the one im in love with, fkin great engine!
     
    Best regards/ Mathias from Sweden

    SVTDEMON reacted to rdvil in 95 mystique code 326 egr low voltage   
    You didn't hear the snap, crackle and pop of the insulations in the wiring when you pulled it around?
    The plastic gets hard and brittle in the engine bay and eventually wears the wires out to copper, and anything you do in the engine bay that has anything to do with the wires is liable to cause trouble.
    If I were you I'd go through the wires you touched, and especially the "joints", the places where the wires are fixed to something, or bent in curves, anywhere that looks like the insulation might be breaking, and find the place where the insulation's broken through.
    If you've just got one fault code, it might not be too bad a break and the wires themselves might still be intact, just shorted or grounded somewhere.
    When you find a likely location, remove old hard plastic and replace with fresh electric tape(or if required solder a cut wire back together first), clear the codes, and see if it comes back.

    SVTDEMON reacted to Terry Haines in Moosing related part # ?   
    Your dealer will have on record the latest revision pt # for the ISC valve.Regarding the hose,I'd save a bit of $$ and do this. Dump any and all of the existing hose/plastic 'bagpipes' etc and use about 30" of heater hose of the correct bore...coil excess length etc with zip ties and I'm sure it will work to stop the moose..I have used this many times in the past..What this does, due to hose length, is change the harmonic of the 'moose' sound wave...and it goes away!!

    SVTDEMON reacted to jhurd in Fog light renewal   
    Been a while since I've posted, but figured I'd pass this along since I was supprised at the results (hence no before pics - I wasn't planning on it working).
     
    My fog lights have been hazed and 'yellowed' for quite some time.  I decided to try and clean them up.  Ended up using 600 grit wet sandpaper, then 1200 grit, and then finished with some meguiars polish on my buffer.
