What is this discussion about?

I'm wondering about an intake system for my 93 3000GT VR-4. I was told that for a twin turbo a cold air intake system is not necessary and won't make too much of a difference. This same person told me to just go with the RAM intake. Is this true? Any information is always appreciated. Thanks.

#3 of 336 98 3000GT Engine stalling
Aug 18, 2005 (7:27 am)
I got this 98 3000GT SOHC, non-turbo. The CEL came on and I got it check out and the diagnostic said, "Fuel Trim Malfunction Bank #1 and #2." is that the O2 sensors that I have to replace? and it is what's causing my engine to stall, you know, rpm goes up and down and then, stalled. I thought it was the fuel pressure regulator so I changed it, that didn't help. All of your help will greatly be appreciate. Thanks.
#4 of 336 Need Advice on buying a 95 3000gt
Sep 09, 2005 (3:32 pm)
Hey guys, Im new to all this and i need some help. Im 16 year old male and ive been obsessed and admired working on cars since i was 10. The 3000gt was one of my dream cars and ive found a opportunity to actually get one. I found a automatic white mitsubishi 3000gtbase model DOHC) with 160,000 miles(engine runs fine) for only $300. The body requires some body work on the rear bumber( was backed up into a pole, thats what i was told. I talked to a friend of mine that works at the body shop and i can probably get it repaired cheap. But thats not the problem. I want to get some serious horsepower out of this car and do alot of body mods. But back to the horsepower im worried that i might not be able to get the horsepower because alot of the performance parts sometimes say not for use with an automatic transmission. Now that ive board u with all this story but i realyy need some help.
#5 of 336 96 autom3000GT jolts/kicks?at speed pickup
Sep 14, 2005 (8:03 am)
I drive like the old mama I am. Our 3000 is a one-owner garage-kept pussy cat, with 75000 miles on her. We hardly use it. The first symptom was a minor jolt or kickback when I was driving 30 MPH. A few minutes later, the CEL went on. We took it to the dealer for service immeidately. They flushed out the old tranny fluid area and put in new tranny fluid. They said the computer is not being clear as to what is wrong and decided to start with the tranny fluid change and see what happens. They cleared off the CEL and we claimed our vehicle. Not 24 miles later the CEL's on again and so is the jolt/kick on a speed pickup -- especially at low speeds.
Does anyone with mechanical experience and / or Mits 3000GT expereince here have any idea what can be causing this problem. I already paid this dealership $700.00 for miscellneous repairs and I am not looking forward to what they're hinting at -- for a new transmission or some expensive transmission problems.
First of all, it's hard to believe with such low mileage and the way I drive it.
Thanks for replies and your time to do so

Well I ran across this Forum thru Google.
My Cousin owns a 95 3000GT non turbo
He wants to upgrade the brakes ..Would the VR4 OEM caliper fit on the non turbos ? Would that make a better stopping power?
Any other exhuast brand out there besides Borla ?
And since its non turbo what is the best setup suspension?
Thanks for your replies .
#8 of 336 Timing belt came loose bent valves????
Oct 16, 2005 (5:36 pm)
Hi all welcome to my nightmare! I have a 91 3000GT SL 70k mint. Had the Tranny replaced
3 months ago the case The Diff came apart inside and cracked the tranny case. $4,700 !!!
I know the trans on these cars are a big problem. After getting the tranny replaced my
mechanic said I should have the timing belt replaced it was due at 60k. and it is a interference motor
and if it lets go it came damage the motor!. Ok had the belt replaced $1200.00!!!!
two weeks later I notice a noise coming from the motor . I took of the plastic timing belt cover
and noticed the belt was very loose? I drove it right away to the shop two blocks away and had the
mechanic look at it, he said wow its loose? leave it here do not drive it and i will check it out..
After sitting up on his rack for a one month! he called and says it looked like the belt skipped and bent
some of the exhaust valves and the motor will not turn over!!!!!!
I was stunned. The car ran fine when I dropped it off ! He is the one that put the belt on for $1,200
it came loose and now he wants me to pay to get the car fixed!
I am correct to say he is the one responsible for the work that he did. I should not pay a cent to
get the car fixed. and maybe get a refund for the $1,200 to put the belt in.
Not sure what to do with the car? It is only worth $5k in the book, just put in a new trans, clutch?
Any one know a good lawyer in the tristate area...................

if hes an ase certified mechanic/shop take him to court. small claims court does not require an attorney. You need to find another mechanic and explain to him the situation and if he agrees the prior work was does incorrect get an estimate from a couple of other shops and pay him a 100 bucks and bring him to court with you. You'll win garaunteed!
