1993 2.3L (aero?) 5 speed

so im missing parts. looks like its all part of the turbo system. im not sure.

i have the turbo and manifold, but do need the wastegate rod
I have another line that must be for the oil or coolant to the turbo, aswell as a radiator fan.

An L is not an aero.
A B234R is aero, and has the Mitsubishi TD04 turbo.

The L might have the little garret like my 93 Griffin, but, mine is an auto, as far as I know they never had the TD04, only manuals did.

That said.
You must be able to find a wrecker, used parts place with the bits you want.

I think you will find your turbo is cooled by oil and or maybe water.

Any questions ask.
Or PM me.

I did a lot of work tuning the ecus on my 9000's.

The APC T5 valve for boost control is expensive.
It is also easy to "blow it".

So, if you find one, please make sure the MOSFETs in the ECU have not failed!

They are easy to replace by someone with the right soldering skills, and very cheap to buy.

I modified one of my 9000s to take the later T7 valve, it was an LPT that I put a stage 1 T5 suite wizard tune on.

Great cars to learn about.
I love them, even though my long distance car is now an E350 Mercedes.

Just be aware, the map in the ecu for a TD04 is different from a Garret.

However, if you can connect with a tuner, especially one who can do the T7 mod to your ECU, you will be a winner.

Even a stage 1 wizard tune, or a stage 2 one with the cat removed will make your car a super excellent highway cruiser.

I did the above mods to my car back in 2010/11.

I bought my 93 Griffin with head, timing/balance chains off.

All the bits in the boot/trunk.

Replaced headgasket, did the valves and lifters, new timing/balance chain kit, rekitted the turbo, then had to find out why it had no boost.

Both the APC valve and MOSFETs were blown.

Given I knew nothing at the start it was a steep learning curve, helped enormously by the guys on here.

Then by the the guys at the ECU project, Dilemma and co, when I taught myself how to tune the ECU with T5 suite.

I encourage you to download it and read up, especially the appendix about converting to a T7 valve APC.
