Project: Typhoon - Build Thread

Over-Ambitious? Maybe. But I figured this would be the best place to catalog my progress. Once it really gets rolling, I'm considering doing some YouTube videos ala MCM/B is for Build style. Not sure yet - so please don't hold me to it.

I've posted a (re)introduction in the Newbie section, as it's been quite a while since I've been around, so check it out if you have any questions.

Project: Typhoon.
Back in 05, my best friend and I both bought tiburons and went in completely different directions. I went for go, he went for show. Fast forward to today, mine is long gone, and his is no longer running just taking up space in his garage. So I bought it from him. It's definitely pretty wild looking, definitely fit his personality. However, I'll be resurrecting it entirely and making it my own.

Being that tomorrow is technically day 1, we'll start this as the Day 0. I need to get this thing out of his garage and moved to my house. He was insistent that it has a bad starter. However, I went the other day, gave it some juice for a few minutes via jumper-cables. I got some turn-over, just no start. What I think the problem is, is all the electronics that are in it. He has 3 subs, 2 amps, 2 capacitors, aux lighting, a DVD and screen head unit, mp3 storage unit and 2 TVs in the back of the headrests. (Very 2F2F) With all of that equipment trying to get their juice on startup, it really seems jumping it off another car just doesn't give it enough juice for what it's trying to accomplish. My idea is to disconnect just about everything unnecessary, and try to jump it again. (There's 4 or 5 thick cables connected to the positive terminal). I'm open to any other thoughts.

Also, a lot of that stuff will be going up for sale, along with the body kit, hood and custom headlights, so if you're interested - keep a lookout.

I'll post pictures along with the laundry list of to-do's as soon as I can, but I figured I would start the thread here to test the waters.

Day 1: Good news, I was right. I disconnected the electronics, gave it a jump, and she started. However... shes far from purring like a kitten. Itll run for a few seconds and then either choke out or try to rev itself back up. It also smells like gas, but has no leaks at least on the motor side. It has been sitting for a while, so Im thinking one or more cylinders arent firing, and its pushing it through the exhaust.

Day 2: after a few more attempts, it did a little better. We were able to get it started and it kept running. Gas smell went away, but it is clearly running rich, and the idle is still a bit harsh.

Its going to be a few days, but hopefully that be enough to drive it home.

Any input is welcome

Here is the general idea for what I'm going for. Excuse my mediocre art skills.

Re: Project: Typhoon - Build Thread

It sounds like an engine that 1) has sat for a loooooong time and the hydraulic lifters lost all pressure and/or may be gummed up 2) Could possibly have oil bypass gunk in the Idle Control Valve preventing it from working correctly.

I'd run a bottle full of engine flush through it as well as fuel injector cleaner and check out the IAC valve. I'm betting its also got Sh1t gas in it.

Beautiful. Thank you. We've got a bunch of snow in the way, but it's going to be in the 50's the resto of the week. Should be able to drive it back on Saturday. This is worth a shot.

Re: Project: Typhoon - Build Thread

Any chance that someone still has the install instructions or video saved? Looks like all the links here are dead, and I'm not turning up anything of value on the ol' internet. Worst case, I can hit up Fiebruz, but I figured this would be worth a shot.
