    TT steath, spanked

    Went to my first "meeting" last night of guys with fast cars - not too much out, but met a guy with a twin turbo stealth - mostly stock, but he claimed some kind of chip modification. Anyway, we went out to the "track" and ran two 8th mile runs, got him by a car length each time. Nice to know that a mostly stock rex can do that

    They did in good condition, the 91-93 5spd cars were 13.9-14.1, but most are now 10+ years old and in varying stages of neglect. That goes double for anyone claiming to have a chip - they don't make one.

    On quite a few of them the boost solenoid has died, lowering boost from 11 psi to 7. Owners never notice it because the stock (useless) boost gauge happily pegs 14 at WOT, and usually it's been that way since they bought the car. Only when they add a real gauge do the see the missing boost.

    A chip on that car means nothing...I don't know if they made one for the Stealth, but they did for the Mitsubishi 3000GT, but they didn't do anything... waste of $600. The chip *might* remove boost cut or something, but doesn't add any performance. Somthing about the way Mitsubishi ECU's used to be different and didn't work well with chips because they would just re-adjust back to normal...
