description:
black ford svt rims and rotors, baer big brake kit, KYB AGX adjustable shocks, Eibach sportline drop springs, sway techniques rear sway bar, 2.5" turbo back straight piping with 5zigen miracle muffler, vortech bov, ACT 2600 pressure plate, ACT 6 puck clutch, xs power front mount intercooler, energy suspension motor mounts, autometer phantom egt gauge, faze boost gauge. new fuel pump, new clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder, fresh royal purple engine oil. no a/c, power steering works great, power windows too. previous owner left his door unlocked and someone broke in and stole my turbo timer, autometer boost gauge, apexi safc, and my headunit. car ran great with safc, but now it bogs down a little untill it hits boost. im also including an uninstalled xs power charge pipe, its like twice as big as the stock unit. i know exactly wut the problem is with the car. the previous owner vented the bov and thats a no no on stock maf. so to fix the problem u would need to recirculate the bov or get a maf t.

Would you be able to fix the problem before you sell it?

Where is Beaumont? In Georgia? Are the stickers good? You willing to drive to Texas for cash?

Was the a/c completely deleted? Do you have the a/c parts? Has the car ever been wrecked? I'm very interested. Pm'ed offer.

I dont think that venting the bov is your problem. Venting on a stock maf will cause it to bog between shifts, but not to bog like that. Your problem sounds like it just has a bad tune. I dont think just recircing the bov is going to fix it.
-I dont know who told you that most 90s had eproms, but eproms are hard to find in 90s as they are in any other year. But if it is an Eprom I will buy it from you and give you a 90 non eprom ecu.

beaumont is in texas. its an hour east of houston. the a/c was taken out by pervious owner,but i do have the ac compresor brand new. the car has georgia plates cuz of pervious owner. the car hasnot been in major wreck. except it has a dent on the driver side quarter panel from idiot kid riding his atv into my car. nothing big just a small dent

the bov being vented is the problem. it bogs between shifts a little not alot. then car runs good besides that. i asked the previous owner he said car has no more than 40k on rebuilt motor. and no parting out.

i dunno who told that 1990 didnt have eprom. read up dude. heres a link for u. http://www.houston-dsm.org/forums/showthread.php?t=55
1990
Inagural model year of the DSM.
Pop-up headlights.
Some high-end models had wheel covers.
All ECUs had EPROMs.
Front brakes change during the model year.
1.8L models have the 4G37 engine, all others have the 4G63 engine.

I dont know where they got that info from, but I have personally pulled ecus out of 90 DSMs that are non-eproms. If you want, I will post a pic of the Non-Eprom ECU out of my 90.
Why dont you check the ecu and let me know what you find.

09-23-2007, 09:27 PM
the number on the outside ends with an E. but i read that alot of ecu's would show that its eprom but when u opened them up they werent. so i guess only way for me to kno is opening her up and seeing if it is. i will do that if anyone that wants to buy the car and wants to kno. if i dont sell the car by oct 9th i plan on keeping her and buying a 3"gm mas and maft to fix everything and start moding it.
