Talking 92 Typhoon 0255

Hello everyone. Names Lance and I purchased my Typhoon outside Philly about a year and a half ago. She's a frost white /grey with 72,000 miles now. Wanted to to start a thread documenting the progress of the beast since my purchase. I bought her in august 2013 and brought her back to Virginia where she started her life (according to carfax) only to realize she was sitting on a blown turbo (massive shaft play). As I was replacing the turbo with a 6266e precision i stumbled upon a major leak in the ATR upper intercooler. Not knowing very much about syty's i ordered a run of the mill 650HP W/A intercooler from frozen boost and fabbed up my own intercooler/piping system. What followed was an unbelievable amount of brake downs lmao ( the true syty experience). This thing is a money pit and I'm so in love! After replacing almost every sensor, belt, and hose things have kind of gotten better lol. From what I have dug up this truck used to belong to a guy named Jay Levitt. Pretty sure I'm the 4th owner. The truck is far from stock and pretty much has the ENTIRE ATR catalog installed. Obviously its an older build that I've been trying to restore. I currently have a set of vortecs and a spare intake manifold to send off for vortec modification as well as a full code 59 /data logging, and Plx wb02 set up getting ready for installation. Just wanting to introduce myself and document the life of 92 Ty 0255 in this thread.

Well obviously I haven't figured out how to post photos yet lol. Yeah man I'm going to be there with the Ty as long as it doesn't develop a sudden need for jack stands between now and the 23rd.

Re: 92 Typhoon 0255

Little update... So i started data logging and of course I'm getting a bunch of KR the second i past 15lbs of boost (running ultimate chip on T1-17 and yes I have a 3 bar map) other then that was getting some way ramdom light KR which I traced down to exhaust hitting in a few places. So i ripped out my s.s. atr pit bull exhaust to rehang it all properly and so I could remove the last piece of down pipe and drop it off to get a bung welded in. I got the plx dm6 all installed aswell, just waiting on the welding shop to finish w/my down pipe so I can get everything back on the truck and start trying to track down the cause of my KR in hi boost!

Re: 92 Typhoon 0255

Well this is long over due but better late then never. First off I tracked down where my false knock was coming from. The fuel lines were hitting the transmission so I slit a piece of rubber hose and wrapped it around them. No more KR for me!

Also since I suck outloud at updating this build thread I have accomplished quite a bit of improvements on the Ty over the last 2 years! I have pretty much gutted the engine bay and started over as it was a complete shit show when I bought it. The pile of unnecessary wires I removed was ridiculous!

Project engine bay consisted of A/c delete, repair and heat wrap my ATR headers and PTE down pipe, jet hot coated accessory brackets, valve covers, coil &throttle cable brackets, SM ABS delete, SM vacuum line kit, every hose under hood replaced, Ported wastegate on turbo for better boost control, added ATR Aux cooler and Ice box for intercooling system, pulled and painted inner fender wells, Taylor wires w/ new boot protectors, NGK UR6 plugs gapped at .032, new MSD cap & rotor, and wire tuck. All of this was completed shorty before Carlisle 2015. There is a shit ton more to report since then but I need to go to work now lol. I will be trying to get this thread up to date and maybe even figure out how to post pics within the next week or 2.
