Hes right you know. 

They rust worse than KE70s/KB310s. (And those were turds for rust/in general)

Hey fuck you, Bart.  KPB310s are cool, just because you put an L20B in yours... 

Rust though. 

Yeah. 

They only thing worse would be if you got one that Malcolm had owned before you. 

Edit : Sorry, assumed this was spam thread because blagging on Tredias, etc.

Trashing mitsi's is fair game anywhere surely?

Haven't had much experience with tredias despite being a mitsi fiend, aside from that one I randomly bid on and won last year from smash palace in oamaru. Had high 300ks on it. Paid 230 I think for it. Wasn't actually super shit being the 1.8 4g37 and 5 speed. Did real good skids. Had it for a couple days then marketplaced it and sold for 450 so almost doubled my money.

And that's my (tredia) story.

Early l200 and a 4G93t lancer.

Seeing as I've mentioned it.

Never have I experienced. . .

Such noisy lifters with so much Promar in the sump.

Such whiney cam drive noises.

Such cracked exhaust manifold.

Such head gasket pouring engine oil out.

Such interior falling apart for no reason.

Such low oil pressure at idle with no bearing wear.

Such high oil consumption.

Such smoky plumes.

Such shitty shifting gearbox.

Until I owned two Mitsubishis.

 

 

Edit.

Such fried engine ECU.

Ah yep. Mildly better than the later gdi turbos. 4g9x engines seem to love to leak oil from the headgaskets. 

There's a reason they were well overshadowed by the evo haha.

Tbf I could make a similarly long list from the 2 nissans I've owned so meh.

Funny, when Karl mentioned "Coast" I immediately thought Kaikoura....

Happy to go either way TBH.

We've got a house locked in for the 27th and 28th August at lake kaniere. If anyone else wants to come along. The house we've got is pretty well full though.

Probs do some mine pesting. Gonna hopefully get to john gibb auto spares on Friday who supposedly has a fair bit of old junk to forage through.
