Mitsubishi-Forums.com - The UNOFFICIAL Mitsubishi Community This site is NOT affiliated in any way with Mitsubishi or any of it's subsidiaries. Our goal is to provide Mitsubishi owners an information outlet - a means to communicate with other Mitsubishi owners. It is simply a community where fans and owners can get the right information for tuning, customization and general discussions on anything about Mitsubishi. You'll find the answer to almost any question about your Mitsubishi in this site. If not, simply join and ask! We have many willing expert members just waiting to answer your questions.
Welcome to the Mitsubishi-Forums.com. Here is a basic introduction on how to use this site to its fullest potential.
Starting with your profile, fill out everything on your cars specifications, that way users can see what kind of answer you are looking for. Remember to post your cars transmission type, automatic, or manual. When you ask about engine mods, this is not always a necessary detail, but does help if you include it according to some applications.
Now what you do is scroll to the top of any of our forum pages. There is a small gray tool bar with dark gray writing. It has your member name and has the following links: (my controls) (view new posts) (my assistant) (board rules) (new messages) and (resend validation Email). On the far right of this tool bar there is a SEARCH engine. You can either type in a topic you wish to find, or you can click the "my assistant" link and it will bring up a new window with two search engines. One is "search posts"; the other is for "search help." If you’re looking for a specific idea I would use the search posts engine and type a general topic and then take your time reading up on as many things as you can. Just because you can not find the information you are looking for with your first search doesn’t mean its not there. For example, your reverse lights are not working so you type in “reverse lights” you get nothing. Your next try should be “back up lights”.
Remember that if you wish to find it again without searching, be sure to click the bookmark tab on the top of the topic page. If you wish to be informed about replies to your posts click the track this topic tab as well. You will get a message in your assistant page that says 170 or something like that, new posts. 1, 2, or 3 post is in reply to a topic you started or a post. You can also choose an email for post replies and what not.
Once you have read up, and researched everything that has already been covered. If you still don't are unsure of how to solve your problem, or wish for opinions or advice on the subject, you may start a new thread asking or just state your question in an old thread.
Ignorance and failure to search before posting tends to suffer from the wrath of the veteran users of this board. It gets real old when the same question is asked three times in one week by three different people. Remember that when you cross a topic post thats locked/closed so that no one can add replies it is because the questions have been answered in full. These are good topics to read up on!
If you have a modified/want to modify your vehicle, and there is a problem that you need help with, it might be helpful to list your mods in your signature so everyone can easily see them. You don't have to but it will help you get the quickest resolution of your problem because people don't have to ask, "What mods do you have?" before they can start helping out.
If you choose to do so, please be clear on what mods are INSTALLED, and what mods you WANT TO install so we don't get them confused.

Wow it has been 6 years but back in an 03 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally. Lucky enough to buy it on my birthday for a nice price of $1,100 but she is in pain and needs some help. Motor mounts feel shot, clutch was gone probably 6 months ago and the heater/AC control panel is busted up and no idea if it works even. Car needs 3 minor dent repairs as well as a serious steam cleaning inside. Previous owner added the Evo 8 spoiler in place of the original OZ Rally but everything else is original still. I still feel if I put less than 1K in it I still got a great deal on it. looking for a few tips and pointers for the lancer. I do not want tor ace it or mock it up to something it is not but wonder if changing the hood and front bumper from stock to the Evo 7 style is easy enough to do mostly for better cooling since I am in FL. Under the hood is a little nerve wracking as there are a few mystery wires here and there spliced in or replacing original ones. Temp gauge goes up to halfway when less than 40 mph but drops to total cool when any faster, no overheating or antifreeze odors. Small patch of rust in trunk on driver side against back light panel base but looking under car no rust visible. Main wonder is, ordering a new clutch kit and DIY is it a simple couple hour job? Have done clutches on Daytonas a few times and those were pretty easy so hope this is too. I will post a few pictures as soon as I clean it up a little, previous owner was a carpenter/painter and used it as a work "truck" so she is very dirty and scuffed. Kind of want to do the bodywork and front hood and bumper conversion and paint it to match the Evo Paul walker drove in 2 fast to keep his memory alive, but leery of that due to morons wanting to race me every time they are beside me. Well ... back soon with some pics.
I drive a 1996 Mitsi FTO GPX and am just looking to meet up with other FTO drivers in auckland and go to some FTO club meets.

These are:Outer plastic for centre console. this is the part where your feet sit in the passenger side on the lower right,mine has a huge crack in it and needs either replacing or fixing if you can help it would be appreciated.

Hey guys, pretty new to using this forum this year. I was looking to get a Lancer Evo soon and was wondering if anyone can point me to some pros and cons. I really like the all wheel drive and triple traction, but I'm also very tall and was wondering if the car would be right for someone a bit over 6 feet.
Hello to all Mitsubishi owners... My name is Shawn and I live in the Wisco, west of Milwaukee. I am a owner of a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse that needs some love. Seems that the previous owner of the vehicle went gypsy circus with the wiring and exterior body. I am having a few issues that need to be corrected in ten days according to my local law enforcement but I am stumped on how to resolve them due to my lack of electrical/automobile experience. The problems i am having are with the driver side rear tail assembly, head lights and the passenger front turn light. Where should I post these issues and who would be the best person to direct my questions to? Thank you for allowing me into the forum and I look forward to talking with ya..
Hi Everyone. I'm new to this site as I recently purchased a used 05 Outlander AWD with manual transmission. The previous owner really took good care of it as I can see from the details of the car. I only taken 1 pic of the Outy during the purchase but I will be taking more as soon as I start putting my new mods. 've owned 2 VW Jetta's and its time to move on to something different. Here's a couple of pics of my previous car to give you an idea on what I want to do with my Outy. I'd rather want to keep it simple not tacky.
Having just joined i am unsure how to post on the correct page ? Any way my daughter has crashed my pinin and the headlight is out of alignment, can anyone tell me how to adjust this light please , thanks
I'm the new owner of two 1993 Diamante wagons. I bought one for $500 and then another cheap one popped up. They have a few minor problems that I hope to figure out after researching the archives here. Anyone else near me have a Diamante wagon?

New member here in the Texas Hill Country. I drive hot rods ('39 Chev sedan and GMC pickup) but have a 2005 Endeavor as my wife's car....AND....our long haul "trip" car. I have to say I have not driven a better road car....ever.... I believe.
In 2006 we took a 6 week-long trip around the western US and Canada....roughly 8,200 miles later I was really raving about what a great traveling car this Endeavor was. We've put a lot of hiway miles on it....not so much recently but it now has 110K miles and I figure it ought to be a 200K+ car easy. I look forward to learning more from other Endeavor owners about keeping these babies purring a long time.
I just bought a red 1996 3000gt sl 5speed and love the car.It looks amazing.Does anyone know if the sl trannys 1st gear usually makes a slight noise when you put it into gear??Any info would be appreciated.

Just checking in to say HI. I picked up an '11 (Rotor Glow) Lancer GTS 5spd on 8/2/11 when I traded in my slightly modded '07 Charger R/T Daytona. Definitely a big power difference going from a 5.7 to a 2.4 but saving $200 a month and having a warranty appeals more to me than the power right now. The only accessories it has is the 6 disc and sport accent package. I look forward to learning more about my car on here.
Hi, I have Mitsubishi Lancer GSR CM5A from 1995. I own it for more than year, didnt change a lot in it. I have HKS Intake, turbo timer, gauges (Boost,AF ratio) and poly suspension bushings (most of them).
In future I'm looking to higher the boost of turbo. Now it is 0.7 bar (10psi), how much 4g93t can take. I thinkI will stop at 0.9 but I would like to hear your opinions.
I became a huge fan of AWD when I purchased a Black/Black with Silver trim EAGLE Talon TSI-AWD back in 1990. Once you've experienced AWD, you can't go back. That lead to the acquisition of a Firestorm Red/Charcoal DODGE Stealth Twin Turbo in 1992 & a Glacier Pearl White Metallic/Charcoal MITSUBISHI 3000GT VR-4 in 1998. My "beater" is a 2006 HONDA Civic. The VR-4 stays garaged when the weather gets nasty & I run errands in the Civic. It's a one-owner car with all of... wait for it... 7,400 miles. I've managed to keep it showroom new & I swear it still has that "new car smell" (non-smoker). It's completely stock & in pristine condition.
In my spare time (what's that?), I LOVE to play electric guitar, shoot exotic weapons at Lake City Range & BBQ on the Weber. I see that bobthecow is another MO resident, appears to be playing Bass in his avatar & has a birthday close to mine; mine's April 9th. Hey Bob!
I'm married; been with the same gal for 37 years. I have a Bengal Kitten named Vinny who's a real piece of work. He's extremely intelligent & has been my partner-in-crime over the last 3.5 years.
