Re: Exhaust

Hot dogs don't remove much sound as the hot dogs rely on absorption of sound by the packing material. There simply isn't enough there for this effect. Hot dogs are therefore more about cleaning the sound a bit. Larger body resonators may help, they're closer to being straight through mufflers which ...

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Realistically probably should have been around $350. In any case, compressors are expensive new, second hand may be an option but risky, and again there's likely more than one system used. Have you checked the compressor model number? Be careful that they do it properly with lubricant and the proper...

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Quick look, $600 is way too much for the 135k service. Also the $150 is excessive, especially to diagnose what you already know. Just think of what they'll charge for the repair!

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Repco places that do AC do a great job, and properly. If the compressor is seized, genuine is super expensive, and many places won't like fitting a second hand one. The compressor in the Lancer is pretty reliable though, so a decent second hand one should be okay. There's possibly multiple incompati...

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Possibly the compressor is stuffed? It sounds like it was seizing, which is why the engine revs dropped significantly (drag), and it finally gave way and you lost the gas. When did you last get the AC serviced? Also, when you got it done was it refilled with the correct gas? There are several 'new' ...

Re: BOOTS. In and open.

That's what I meant. I guess it depends on how strong they are. Upgraded gas lifters are probably easier

You could retrofit gas lifters.

Re: Exhaust

Discussed many times before :). I can't find the original posts about it. In any case, the EGR valve got stuck open, and the car could barely run and constantly stalled. Luckily I could pull into a popular lookout. The road side assistant couldn't find the issue. Got it towed to Ultra Tune as they w...

Re: 2017 Black Edition CF Lancer

I got one ages ago. Had to buy some velcro sticky things to keep it in place as it came loose with heat.

They're on special at the moment, down from $52.49 to $35.99.

Re: Exhaust

Have purchased a 2.4lt exhaust manifold, to replace the clam-shell manifold on my 2ltr 2015 ES. I understand these 2.4ltr type manifolds have actually been used on some earlier 2ltr cars. So wander! Hmmmm warranty? Might hold off for a year!!!! Instead of gold exhaust wrap. Considering painting it ...

Re: Exhaust

Probably would be too loud then. You'd have to get a straight through stainless resonator, one with a large body so it acts like a muffler also.

Simple chip keys can be copied at a couple of hundred dollars. Ring around though, prices can vary greatly. Keyless keys are much harder even though without the key, keyless is left with just 'less'. Less is more, in this case the price!

Re: 2017 Black Edition CF Lancer

I believe the engine has been tuned slightly differently for better emissions rating, there may be slightly different parts involved. If you did the usual mods and tuned it, it's likely the engine will produce similar power to and older CJ engine post EPAS. The base engine and head is at least 11 ye...

Re: Exhaust

It's target is noise, but without experience can't comment on volume with load etc. I have a mid size straight through muffler currently and it's a little loud around town, but a decent resonator helped a lot. On the highway I cannot hear it over the road noise, I'll have to see if Nilrust has an in...
