Yahh i was hoping it would last longer... But i will say it did very good with the railiart turbo at 10 psi. I had it at 205 whp which was nice but me tuning it i was never able to get PT tuned good until the last day of putting back the clutch in lol.Bummer
What is the plan now?
Also, what do you think killed it? Too much boost? How much boost do you think you could have safely run?
That is possible, were you regularly hitting the rev limiter/redline?I know i am still guessing but i am wondering if my rpm gauge was off. I did notice that my vcm was showing higher rpm then my cluster rpm.. the car also felt good.. i wonder if the car was reving higher then what it was telling me..
Not trying to at all. It was set to 7k on the 1.8 but i changed it to 6.5k... so maybe that would ruel that out.That is possible, were you regularly hitting the rev limiter/redline?
I adjusted the rev limiter on my race car down to 5,900 RPM to protect the engine.
When I had my car tuned, I had the tuner disable torque management and all the other safety protections for the engine. All of these things will reduce fuel when you get over certain load/wheel spin, etc. , which makes the mix lean...even if it is normally running rich.
In any case, what is the plan now? Rebuild, 2.4 swap, swap in an EVO turbo motor?
How about buying an entire Caliber salvage with a 2.4L (or whatever engine you want)? Then you get the engine, computer, etc. and can scrap the rest.I think i am just going to wait until a good deal comes up and what ever first comes is where i will go. For now i guess ill try to clean the carpet 😂😂

This one was salvaged for rear end damage, it runs and drives and otherwise looks like it is in ok shape... buy it now price of $700:
This one is even cheaper and the body is obviously rusted out, but it also runs and drives:
