had a few spare hours today.
got a couple nice surprises...
both turbos are exposed now [pic1] [pic2]. the rear heatshield was very easy to take out i dont know what all the fuss is about.
here is the front [pic1]
here is the back [pic1] surprise! the blades ate something. both turbos are super tight though.
moving to the bottom, got the downpipe off [fuckin ebay dp sucks, took forever]. went to take rear precat off and stripped the stay bolt [pic1]. gotta figure something out for this cause my angle grinder is too big to fit in that spot. same time noticed my inner steering rack boot is torn [pic1]. i dont know if i wanna pull my rack out. leaks galore [pic1] [pic2] [pic3]
called it a night cause i got too pissed.

2 more hours today. got the front turbo out with little trouble [pic1]. here is it beside the 15g [pic1]. stripped 6/8 precat studs lol [pic1], gonna have to grab new ones. rear turbo is still stuck in there [pic1] until i can figure out how to remove the precat to get to the bottom 2 exhaust bolts. thanks mitsu for great design. couldnt get the exhaust bolts off cause to reach it extension is too far and no torque on it. those 2 bolts are the only things left for the rear to come out.

another couple hours today.
got the rear turbo out by some miracle. pulled out the chra first and somehow broke the exhaust bolts from underneath. precat is still in there.
pulled the rear motor mount out [pic1], this was a big PIA for rhd with the steering column being on that side will all the power steering lines, im thinking of deleting power steering now...anyways, compare with new mount [pic1] and new one in [pic1]. pulled the front one out [pic1]. compare with new one [pic1]. had to modify to make it fit [pic1], and finally in [pic1].

overall good progress today. gonna go after deleting the abs system tomorrow while i wait for my gaskets to come in. speaking of which there is a new mitsu dealership that just opened up in surrey right off of 152 exit gonna go check it out to order some studs&tb gasket.

went to the new mitsu dealer in surrey, ordered some parts [tb gasket, nuts, studs]. apparently theyve been there since january? anyways im happy there is a mitsu dealer so close to me now.

my turbo gaskets arrived today. talk about hidden costs ...$100. the mr cable also came in [pic1]. this is what it will look like once i throw it in [pic1]. the xtd pp came in also [pic1] [pic2], the face makes me a little nervous cause it looks like a refurbished stocker and its back just painted. i guess ill will find out once i throw it in.
taking a break today so i just soaked all the brake lines again in pb blaster. the abs system is going to be replaced with this [pic1] its a non abs system from my parts car from the summer.

got all the abs stuff out today. that was a bitch and a half. my advice is to do it with the engine out.

nest of brake lines and a pump that weighs like 20lbs. hell even the abs prop valve is like 2lbs heavier than the non abs prop valve. will try to finish it up tomorrow and post pics.

oh man ... should have warned you

i tried to do the abs delete with the engine in the car and decided that it was almost impossible to do with oem lines without kinking and bending the crap out of them. if you already have most items out of the engine bay anyway, its almost worth pulling the engine...

anyway good luck with the project. keep up the updates!

i wanted to do it sometime, and since i was doing rear turbo i thought it was perfect time to do rear mount&abs delete. its not that its hard, it just takes alot of patients. lots of swearing and taking breaks.

so i finally finished the brake lines today awww yeaaa. bled the system and it feels very nice, ill do a review once the car is on the road. the nest of lines that is the abs system [pic1]. new prop valve [pic1]. a look at the left of the engine bay [pic1] looking very simple. and finally, no pump [pic1].

had a go at the radiator to try to swap the ac fan into the main fan spot, mounting points are different and i believe the way the fans turn on are different as well [one power switched, the other ground switched]. i dont know if i want to go through with it...it will save about a pound or so and give more room up front, we will see. probably decide after i get my turbos in.

started on putting the front turbo in, one of the threading on the turbine housing stripped right at its start [like 2 threads] pulled it back on and called it a day. im not sure what ill do about it. either force thread it and hope it seals or swap turbine housings and order a bunch of studs which will take another 2 or so weeks

Try running a thread die on it! They are bastards to get off the housing, I ended up drilling a couple of mine out and putting heli-coils in. Good luck!

well tapping it didnt work so i did a nut+bolt combo. front turbo is in&done minus the all the nuts, the ones i got were the wrong size so i reordered those. next time im off im gonna throw the rear turbo in and get everything back together while i wait for those nuts. my nut breaker for the rear precat stay bolt is too big and wont fit so im gonna throw the turbo back in the same way i took it out and i should be fine. fingers crossed for first start up on the week of the 27th.

so frustrating waiting on parts to come in so you can finish something up.
