Rockauto shows a lock cylinder for a '93 Protege but not the Capri. You could compare the pictures online to yours and see if they match.

Also you can take yours to a locksmith and see if they can fix.

For the record, XR2S can lift the head and break the head gasket seal an mine did and was pushing oil out the right front corner near the oil return passage. May not be common, but mine also overheated once, breaking one of those pencil thin coolant hoses feeding the turbo.
I went with ARP head studs and a Cometic head gasket and a mill job.

Or pull a used one if you can find one. My friend across town had one in his hulk that had around 100k on it, good as new. It worked out fine on my car.

So, so with AC off, you can see boost on the gauge and feel the torque but with the AC on, you have almost no power?
If your turbo was blown you would still have ordinary bland NA power, the car would not be so torque-less as to top out at 10 so I wouldn’t think this is a turbo issue. I suspect a bad ground involving the coil and the stupid lugs they designed around the thermostat housing and the long bolt. Another thing to check would be the AC compressor itself. It could be bound up by too much PAG oil or overcharging.

Also check the grounds for the cooling fans that come on when AC is activated.
Check your plug gap as well. If the coil spark is weak it could be cutting out.

And it could also be a bad diode trio, maybe one diode down. I drove with that for quite a while without knowing it, only found out one was bad when during other beltside maintenance I had my alternator rebuilt.
Hope that helps.

It sure does look like you put the inner seal on backwards. :) Maybe it's the photos but look at #3 and #11 and compare.

I completely agree!....   Not sure if there is any impact, as far as the bearings seating correctly, but will leak from both sides eventually

Do you have the clutch pedal assembly and the piping for the hydraulic clutch and what hooks to the pedal and to the master cylinder for the clutch?

I guess it will not spool up if you don't have power. So what really is my problem is no power can only get 10mph in 1st about 25 in second if lucky and 35 in 3rd after that unless it's down hill I'm in trouble

Looking for an n/a hydraulic clutch pedal assembly and what hooks from the pedal to the master cylinder for the clutch. If you have the piping then I need it too. I ordered a new master and slave cylinder. Needs to fit a 91. I'm doing the hydraulic clutch conversion on my xr2.

It's a stock clutch and pressure plate from O'Reilly's auto parts. Rocketman you are awesome and I'm wanting to purchase a rocket chip from you in the near future. How much do they cost.
