    Re: Show Off Your Mini!!

    Very nice!!

    I love red interior, it stands up best of all the colors!!

    My 1989 Voyager LX has a great red interior but rust is getting bad.

    Thanks
    Randy

    Current performance mods are:
    MBC set to 14psi
    Intercooler from a Daytona
    Electric exhaust cutout
    255 fuel pump

    Hoping to do some upgrades in the near future.

    How many have an air to water IC in their van? I would love to keep my AC without modifying it. It seems like an A/W IC might be a better way to go? I wonít be doing any cutting on this thing at all.

    In addition to the AtW IC question. What is everyone doing for headlight housings these days? The one on the driver's side collects a lot of water and is in rough shape on ours.

    It was not close to this when I picked it up. The engine bay had layer upon layer of hardened oil and grease. Pulled entire front end out, replaced anything rubber. Interior looked like someone used it for a machine shop; grease and metal dust everywhere. Pretty clean now, but it is back in garage. It started idling erratically this weekend and vac was between 12-16. Compression check on #1 revealed only 30. Pulled head off, inside the engine was twice as clean as outside, nothing significant, no carbon buildup anywhere.

    Gonna toss the Mitsu, upgrade to a Garrett. I was looking at air to air, but I do not want to loose my A/C, and move anything around, plus cut to run plumbing. Frozenboost has a water/air kit I am interested in, I want to make that work in Vanna.

    Soon I will start a project thread for Vanna, like to document my process.

    I'll be following it closely. It seems like we have similar ideas. I already have a garrett in mine and would love to do an air to water setup. I think even something as low as stock tii boost levels is exactly what my van needs. It doesn't need much, just a little more.

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is video worth??

    Got a record breaker again! We'll see how long she can hold on to her new title as Top Van!

    Congratulations Wayne! I bet you keep that record for a while. I haven't even heard of anyone chasing the record for years.

    Thanks Corby!
    You need to get yours out there and update your PB!
    There are a couple out there gunning for it. And some "new blood" taking a stab at it too.
    It's all good, and will be fun having some fast van action on the list, and maybe at SDAC.

    Thanks Randy my Canadian friend! It may look easy, but it's been a long struggle to get everything just right. And I didn't exactly do it alone, but sometimes it might have felt like it!

    I'll be updating my project log when I can, since it has been overly long since updated.

    I'm not really ashamed to admit it, but I did actually have tears of joy after seeing the slip and the reality struck me on the return road!
    I think Gus would be pleased!
