Hello all,
Just introducing myself to the forum and show off my car. It's the Cordia that geewiz had for sale on here a while ago and is now my second Cordia. My other one is a GSL which I was planning to use as a daily driver until they changed the P plate laws in NSW which meant that I could drive a GSR on my P's, so I brought one.

It's pretty stock which I plan on keeping it that way. I do plan on doing a couple of mods though, these include magna front brakes so I can change the wheels(I've got a set of old 14" mags), front driving lights (yellow rectangular one like the Japanese GT Cordia's) and if I ever get around to it I'll install a intercooler (only if it doesn't involve cutting much off the front.)
So far I've replace the exhaust with a full 2.5" system, installed a boost controller and put the stock stereo out of the GSL into it as well as some other bits. The injectors are leaking though and the clutch is slipping when the turbo spools up so I'll have to fix these first. I will upload pics of the changes I make to my car to try and keep this forum running as it has already been a huge help to me since I've got so much info reading through it.

Love this car..........with your leaking injectors, it may just need a throttle body rebuild kit with all new seals......cordia's were always bad for this (covering the inlet in fuel staining it red).

Welcome to the forum. :)

Thanks mate, I'll order a kit out of America soon for it to fix the leaks. I did try Mitsubishi dealers here and another parts joint but they were no help.

Fixed the fuel leaking, turned out to be the injector itself from the plastic. So I've encased the injector plastic with araldite and that seemed to do the trick for now. Also have now put some serious thought into installing multi-point injection. I'll just have to start saving up now for it.

Yep, old injectors do that..............multi point will be the way to go........getting original engine/body parts is near impossible, even though I have MANY spares. :)
