Could also take a drive somewhere that the road gets twisty....Was going to go up to the Dragon's Tail this fall, but I've been doing so much maintenance along with a swap into another car, that Iv'e lost track of time it seems. I'd be up for any or all of that. Perhaps we can coax others.

Ok cool, I'll get with you on the chip in the next few weeks then and in the meantime I'll keep my eye out for a VJ11. In my poking around on the site, I recall reading something about the stock VJ14 not necessarily loving 16 psi. Is there anything I should look out for when running that much boost on the stock turbo (IAT, EGT, overheating/damaging the turbo with too many consecutive pulls, etc.)?

Thanks,
Nate

Well I mean, you can use the Rocketchip just fine with the stock turbo (up to 16psi). You don't need the hybrid to run it. It does support the hybrid if you decide to go larger.

Hi all,

I bought a '91 XR2 back in August and have been enjoying the car a lot with just a mbc set to 9 lbs. and the airbox mod. I'm going to park the car for the winter soon with the intentions of fixing up a few little things (clutch, wheel bearing, brakes, small coolant leak from thermostat housing) and I also want to start piecing together the hybrid turbo so I can get the rocketchip.

If anybody has a VJ11 or knows where the best places are to look, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Nate

Cars and Coffee sounds cool.  Come over, spend the night and see cars for breakfast.

It's probably also possible to rebuild the stock unit with a new potentiometer inside

Nice.  How big a deal was the white faced gauges?  Is this the eBay decals?  Like the tail lights also. May have to come to Asheville and get acquainted.

Hi Jack,

They are the screened decals and were EZ PZ to do. I would just stress to make sure they were put on straight. I used my heat gun a bit for even better fit and finish. Sounds good about a mini "mini" meet. We have a "Cars N' Coffee" meet as well in Asheville every 2nd Saturday. It would be cool to show up with a few XR2's. Any or all of that I would be up for....

-Ben
