  1. Thanks for the kind words Nile! It's amazing how well your car does at the timed events (Autocross, road courses, etc..). I bet your TC surprises the heck out of a lot of people! Then when you pop the hood and they see that 16v Maserati engine they are probably scratching their heads! Turbocharged, intercooled, 4v per cylinder.....in 1989!? From the factory!? What other 4cylinder production cars had that kind of tech (from the factory) sold in the US in 1989? Not many. Eagle Talon TSi maybe? But they didn't offer those until 1990. In 1989 Mitsubishi and Chrysler only offered the Starion/Conquest TSi (which had a 2.6L Turbo and was not 4v per cylinder). My advice to anyone with a TC (8v or 16v) is do not try to play with boost unless you have a way to monitor your A/F ratios. The nice thing about the stage II computer is it handles all of that for you. Also, as Andrew pointed out, you really don't want to cap off your BOV because it will cause compressor surge which can wipe out the thrust bearing inside your turbo. The cost of the stage II controller (considering the power gains) is actually super, super affordable. For some of the other cars in my collection to achieve those kinds of gains costs way, way more. The stage II controller is actually a real performance bargain for the performance increase you get! It is however, imperative that you ensure your base ignition timing is set to 12 deg BTDC and you have a good BOV (as Turbo Kane) and others have pointed out.

  10. Congrats Plumbing guy! Let me know if you need any parts for her. I have a large inventory of both new factory NOS Mopar parts (as well as quite a few good used parts) available for the TC's. If you are interested in an awesome performance upgrade, I do offer a "Stage II" engine controller which will increase the power on your TC from the factory 160hp rating to 200hp. Feel free to send me a message or you may visit my website here: www.rdiperformance.com In my website there is a link with my email address in case you have any questions. I also write a column in the TC newsletters from time to time with performance upgrade info and general maintenance tips to keep our beautiful TC's running! You can also reach out to Hemi Anderson and/or Larry Carlson for parts and advice as well. If you haven't already done so I'd highly recommend you join the TC America club. It is a fun club, where all us members come together to talk about (and help each other fix) our TC's. For more information on how to join the TC club you can reach out to Karleen. Her website can be found here: https://www.chryslertcbymaseraticlub.com/ Regards, Rick
  11. See pics and either PM me or send me an email with the parts you're interested in. I've got two complete 16v parts cars. I'd prefer to keep the powertrains out of them, but will consider selling them for the right price. May even consider selling one (or both) cars whole. One is an exotic red 89/ginger/black the other is a Black 90/ginger/black and as I say, both are 16v cars. Feel free to visit us online here: www.rdiperformance.com If you visit my website you'll see my email address in case you'd prefer to reach me via email. Thank you, Rick

  13. Jim H: I have the lower timing cover new, but no more uppers that I want to part with at this time - keeping my last few for the 16v cars in my collection. You can email me. rick___at___rdiperformance___dot___com CWigleyJr: I have a set of hoses for the 3liter v6 however they are used just like the ones currently in your car...so I don't know that they are any better than what you currently have. You can have yours rebuilt locally, or you can send them to me, and I can have them rebuilt for you, but it's not a cheap process. Jim B: I have the passenger side window belt molding, you can email me as well and I'll be happy to quote you. Kevin: I do not have interior door belt moldings...as they are part of the door panel itself. Exteriors, I do have.
