What is the top speed of a 3000gt sl?
In Top Speeds
Then I'm not sure what it's registered for but I've gotten my 94 sl up to 135. I probably could have gotten it to 140ish if i took more time, but i didn't need the extra few mph. Some people claim 155 in their stock non-turbos, but i doubt it, unless they were going down hill with a huge tailwind. When I had my old 91 sl I confirmed 148 on speedo so 145 being the 3 s cars speedo gear is 3 mph to fast.. Sold it got a 430 awhp tt. Not gonna say were/ when . But 165 is just another day at the park .... Have honestly got pulled over doing 115 on accident. Wasn't watching speedo. 145 feels like 115 thing is a god damm jet

The computer in your vehicle controls idle (base and curb). When the battery was disconnected the computer lost memory of the set idle. The car needs to re-learn the idle specs, sometimes can be done by driving for around 15-20 minutes. If not you will need to see a mitsu dealer and have a multi sca…nner hooked up to reset the idle.

0-60 in 7.5 The 98' Mitsubishi 3000gt should have the same thing as the 97'.The(stock)97' has a V6 181 cu.inch 3.0 liter single overhead cam w/161hp @4400rpm and 185(lbs,ft) of torque @4000rpm and weight is at 3131lbs.In a 1/4 mile it runs 16.1sec. and In 0-60 in 7.5sec.So you should have the same… thing if its STOCK Ok, The stock times may be difficult to find but I've owned 3 sl's one stock the other HEAVILY modified. My stock 95 gets 0-60 in about 6.1 takin it to 6krpm 80%throttle. around 5.9 all the way and this is with some wieght reduction. As i recal all the 3000gt non vr4 after 96 or 97 did not come with the DOHC but in fact came with the SOHC only. so only the sohc base or vr4 was what you could get. Not like previous years where you had the base (161hp) sl (222hp) vr4 (300-320hp). And sl does NOT stand for SLow......idiots. It clearly stands for SPORT LUXURY. So for a base 0-60 for a 98 im guessin between 6.7 - 7.5 stock. Theres youtube vids where people are hitting 6.5 easy with there 161hp base model, and sl's are hitting 5.5 easy. Every car is different tho and all depends on the driver. My opinion.....get a 97 vr4.....0-60 4.7 sec stock. (0-60times.com.) Hope this helps a bit. (MORE)
\n. \n Starter Location \n. \nIts located in the front of the motor toward the transmission. One of the bolts is easy to get to from the top and uses a 14mm socket. The cable from the starter is connected with a 13mm bolt and you have to unplug the other wire. The other bolt has to be tak…en out from the bottom. The best way is to jack the front end up and put jack stands under the axles. From the front of the car it will be above the exhaust to the passenger side (US). I recommend doing this job when the engine is cool. This job should take about 15 minutes. (MORE)
Answer . Im having the same problem in my 93 3000gt, except i have no lights working in my gauge cluster and my taillights are out..although i still have brake lights there are 2 fuses for the cluster and taillights one is located in the engine bay the other located in the fuse box on the driver …side..i tried a 40 amp out of curiosity and it worked for afew min and than smoke started pouring out of my dash...wasn't a smart idea i know.. although tomorrow i will be taking apart the dash and seeing whats going on my idea is a hot wire is just grounding out ill get back to you as soon as i figure it out until than check both fuses.. Answer . Honestly, its most likely that the light bulb that illuminates those two lights have burned out. I have the same problem with my PWR light, but not the Tour light. I notice the difference when I have either engaged so I know that they're working, the lights just don't light up.. (MORE)
What could cause a 91 3000gt sl to at speeds 50 or below sputter and buck while trying to maintain steady speed and at idle for a long while die unless gas is applied and fuel pump has been replaced?
Answer . i am unsure on why the car is sputtering although at idle it may be stalling out/dying due to the IAC(idle air controll) first try to clean the iac it is located next to the throttle body if that does not work you may have to buy a new one wich range at about $300 (unfortunatly). try th…e TPS , am pretty sure tha's the problemo.

Where is crank positioning sensor on 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL car will crank and run several days then won't crank but by the time get home from work it cranks?
Best advice I can give you is go to www.Team3s.com and post the question to the forum. You will get a lot of good answers as its a great site with people who know your car. They ask for a small one time donation of like $5. and its well worth it if you own one of these cars the information you will …get there along with parts deals from Mitsubishi dealers are great, Best investment you will ever make (MORE)

Where do you get parts for retractable hardtop for 3000GT Mitsubishi Syper SL I need the whole kit or all parts?
Well to start with you can go to the most obvious place, eBay or do a Google search. You can also do a search through auto recyclers for the parts you need. If you can't find a good site online then you can go to your nearest auto recyclers and have them do a search for you. Now-a-days auto recycler…s have most of their inventory on computers and a lot of them are hooked up to a national database that each place can access. So even if they don't have the part they may be able to locate someone who does have it. If you are looking at getting a brand new part that will be most likely impossible unless you have it made your self. I am not positive that there are not people selling these parts but considering there was less then 2000 of these cars made the chances of it being a part that someone wants to make to sell are slim. I would also check one of the dealers that still specialize in repair and maintenance of these special cars. If you go to the site; http://www.3000gtspyder.com/index.htm or more specifically this location http://www.3000gtspyder.com/spyder/spyder_certified_techs.htm There is a list of dealers that still are certified to work on these cars. It may be outdated but it would be a starting point. You can then check through them. If there are any NOS parts out there they should be able to get them. If not they might be able to steer you in the right direction. I have a 95 3000GT VR4 spyder and it is an incredible car. I have not had any problems with the top so it is fairly robust. If you get it fixed it will probably be the last time you deal with it. Oh and by the way that site above also has a link where you can find parts as well. Good luck, this is an incredible and rare car. (MORE)
Can you put a Mitsubishi 3000 gt vr-4 twin turbo engine and transmission into a 1992 Mitsubishi 3000gt sl non-turbo model?
Answer . or you could just change your high compresion pistons to low compresion ones and buy a t5 turbo
Stuck as in what? Is it like not closing/opening, or is it literally stuck in between stages? If its stuck half way, usually starting the car again or pressing the button for longer will start it again, otherwise get a repair center to look at it.
I'm guessing you mean for top speed? Then I'm not sure what it's 'registered for' but I've gotten my 94 sl (same engine & transmission) up to 135.

You want to increase more power for your 94 3000gt sl where can you buy you trans chip and exhauster headers?
Go to 3SX.com and enjoy (watch the video of their 902 whp. and 720 wpft. animal!).
you can do this but will be very costlly as you will have to change a lot of things will probley be cheaper to buy the whole car then do it separate
As resonance works, it quietes down the noise of your intake at WOT, or wide open throttle. You can remove it to make your exhaust sound louder by removing your intake tubing, removing the bottle looking plastic box, and filling the hole with a pill or vitamin bottle lid. I believe I used a Tylenol …lid. It does not give you any power, only a better sounding intake. (MORE)
If its a race car your talking about with a Yamaha 1200 or 1250cc motor and 5 speed transmission, they can run about 120 or 125 depending on the rear end gear. but they usually would never get close to this because their either running on a 1/4 or 1/2 mile track.

It depends on what model you are asking about. Generally above200mph. Older models above 150mph.
yeah the vr4 engine will bolt up right to the transmission, its been done quite often actually, check out the 3si.com forums and meet people who actually done it.

Is there anything relatively cheap you can do to increase 50-60 horsepower on your 1995 Mitsubishi 3000gt sl v6 3.0 dohc?
get on eBay and get a intake and exhaust that will not make 50 hp but will help alot! they also have a chip that is real cheap i don't know how well it is but it says it will make 30 more hp
Yes it has what is called a passive system, when activated the headlights pop up and the horn beeps rapidly, to disarm you must unlock the car with the door key.
The reservoir is located at the bottom of the trunk, under the spare tire. There is a plastic covering under the spare tire that has to be removed in order to see the hydraulic pump.
Ok, take off the Manifold carefully writing down your step in case you forget after you replace them. You'll find the other three plugs under. The front three are under the panel that faces you when you are in front of the car with the hood up. There will be 8 nut/screws holding it in.
If there is no dip stick then there will only be a fill hole either on top or the tranny or the side. You will have to pull that out and put a piece of wire in it to check it.
u dont there are no adjustments that can be made that way, everything's electrical. i have a 01 sls had similar problem went to auto zone and got a idle air control valve $200.00 fixed problem. its a easy easy change just 2 little screws and an electrical plug. gudluk.
\nI assume you want to remove the hard top on the car, and use the soft top which is hidden under the horse shoe cover....\n. \nYou will need 2 people to remove this top, unless you have a block and tackle set up, which I assume you don't.\n. \nYou need the "tool", which you should have either in …the glove box or in the trunk, with the jack or tool kit. If you can't find this tool, you can use a large, flat blade screwdriver.\n. \nLower the visors...you will see a round chrome nut with a square slot in it. Place the tool in the slot, and move the nut outwards. There are two of these, one under each visor. The top will move upwards just a little. That's good.\n. \nThen, on the inboard left hand panel behind your driver's seat, you'll see a small crank handle. Push that handle towards the rear of the car. You'll hear the latch move. There are two more chrome nuts, inside, just in front of the side window pillar. Use the tool and turn those bolts left. Once again, the top will lift up a little. This is good. Then, before you remove the top, on the right side, opposite of the crank, you'll find a little flap with two snaps covering a thick black wire. Open the flap and unplug the wire from it's holder and replace the flap, and re-snap.\n. \nHere's the tricky part...get another guy...99% of the girls can't help you here...get the other guy on the other side of the car. The roof is aluminum and doesn't weigh that much, but its bulky and hard to handle. Lift the top directly straight up, at least 6" over the body. Once you have the top up, both of you walk straight backwards towards the rear of the car. Be careful to keep the top up, there's a 3" pin under the rear of the roof and can make a big mess if you hit the paint with it. Take the top all the way back and carefully lay it on the ground.\n. \nThat''s it. Pop that handle all the way back, which should pop open the horse shoe cover revealing the soft top underneath. Pull up on the soft top, then pull forward. Move the handle and small chrome lever to the forward position. Put the horse shoe back down, and let it lock down. Then put the top's pin into the hole in the center of the horse shoe. Then move the top down on the front holes. Use the tool to lock the front of the top down. Then, pull the crank in the rear forward to lock down the rear part of the top.... YOU'RE DONE. (MORE)
\nSL is better in terms of luxury. The base had most of the options(doesnt mean it has them) of an sl but for the sl they came standard. SL's usually have leather seats, moon/sun roof, power driver seat, crome rims, sometimes digital ac control, sometimes ecs or electronic controlled suspension whic…h is pretty cool (I have it) it will stiffen the suspension a little. The engines are for the most part are identical 222hp dohc. Unless it is one of the newer models that could have the 160hp sohc. Which was only put in bases not in the sl. (MORE)
Yes sure you can. ___________________________________________________ I wouldn't recommend it, if you are referring to the automatic inan sl, because, with all due respect (I'm a huge Mitsubishi fan),they were quite inferior with an average lifespan of 75,000-100,000if you're lucky. If that's what y…ou're asking I would DEFINITELYrecommend using the getrag manual gearbox that were offered for the3000gt's. (MORE)

Yes the hardtop for any 107 bodied car will fit all others. I believe there are 2 slightly different versions...one with chrome rails and one without. (The interior liner may be differnent too).
I have a 1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL that Idles at 3000 RPM when started and won't go below that. Is this possibly the Idle Air controler?
\nthe rpm when you start your car is suppose to be @ 800rpm...and you can lower and raise your RPM by screwing the idle controll at the left side of your plenum...its going to be look like a bolt of a flathead screw driver.
Do you mean a 500 SL, or an SL 500? I have a '97 SL 500 (40th anniversary edition) and it's simple.. 1) Lower windows. Park on flat surface. Put engine in "park" and turn engine off.. 2) With a helper, gently set hardtop onto its position so straight brackets on rear are aligned with receiving poc…kets, and front of hardtop is squared over its receivers.. 3) Turn key to AC position.. 4) Push red tab button on center console (forward right button) forward until hardtop is fully pulled into receivers.. Done. (MORE)
You have 1994 3000gt sl it will start fine then in like 5min is will just shut off sitting or driving then wont start for 15 min?
try checking your timing chain. I had the exact same thing happen to me for about one month then my timing chain broke on a 12 year old 1981 Toyota Celica with a lot of km's.
Are you talking about removing the hard top or removing the soft top from the car? If the hard top that is simply a case of using the red button to the left of the gear lever to release it (the same button that raises and lowers the soft top) and then with the help of someone else lifting it clear.… If it is the soft top then there is an excellent video run through here - http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r129-sl-class/1328118-r129-disassembly-videos.html#post3194559 (MORE)
call your dealer, unlike oil, most car makers all use different transmission fluids . GM is Dextron, ford is mercon, etc.
My hard top latch lock is broken just the lock latch can I just buy the lock unit
Yes. It's basically a straightforward swap for a non-turbo. Would suggest an upgraded (Walbro 255) fuel pump. http://www.3si.org/forum/f35/my-6g74-3-5l-swap-webpage-240131/
1991 to 1993 3000gt do not have a crank sensor. Only a cam sensor. And when does go out the car will not start or have a very irregular idle.

Get your top tool out...it's that curvy metal tool that you've seen around the car but didn't know what it was for...if you can't find it, use a flat blade screwdriver. On the inside of the car, right behind the driver's seat (on the left inside panel) you'll find a little lever with a plastic hand…le...you want to crank that towards the read of the car. There's a little chrome lever right under that lever...push that down. You should be able to lift the rear of the convertible top up. Reach down again, and crank the lever towards the rear of the car. The top cover, which looks like a big horse shoe should pop up. This is where the convertible top will nestle into. Flip down both visors...you'll see a round chrome nut between the convertible top and the windshield's top frame...slide your top tool (or screwdriver) into the slot and push towards the center of the car...do the same thing on the other chrome nut. Pull the top straight up and continue folding the top towards the back and down until the top is completely inside the boot area...then push the horse shoe back down to the car, and crank the handle forward....get in the car and drive.

Yes however it requires much more than just the turbo to be swapped. here is a pretty complete list.

absolutely, if you first convert the engine to run a turbo, and that would include replacing your 4spd automatic with a manual gearbox, considering the automatic transmission that come with the sl & base models could barely handle the v6 engine alone. I would assume adding another 10lbs of boost wou…ld probably burn it up pretty quick. personally i would recommend selling your sl for a vr4 model, considering the price for the conversion would probably be more expensive than just selling the sl and buying a vr-4, but hey it's your money, not mine. Above is 100% correct just to push the point further here is a list of parts needed to swap: -Turbos from a VR4, either the TD04 9b's or TD04 13G's with wastegate actuators -Both intercooler and all piping associated -Exhuast manifolds and the manifold gaskets from a VR4 -o2 housings and precats from a VR4 -Oil housing from a VR4 -Oil feed and return lines for the turbos, and all the eyebolts and gaskets -"Joint" on the back of the engine block for the rear oil feed line -Modified non-turbo oil pan to accept oil return lines -Water housing from a VR4 -Water feed and return lines for the turbos and all the eyebolts, washers, and gaskets -VR4 downpipe -360cc injectors -VR4 fuel pump (or walbro 255ltr/hr) -Injector resistor pack -Front motor mount bracket -Oil cooler with lines electronics needed: -S-AFC or S-AFR -Boost gauge -Air/Fuel ratio gauge -Exhuast Gas Temperature gauge (two is best, one for front bank and one for rear bank) (MORE)
The reason for the chime is that there's an error in your system, somewhere.... It could be a couple of things: 1. low hydraulic fluid 2. one (or more) of the hydraulic valves is leaking 3. there's a sensor above the windshield ...it's directly above the rear view mirror on the windshield frame. T…his sensor tells the system that the top is properly sealed. You should check the fluid level of the system...the reservoir is located underneath the spare tire, and under that big plastic hat...there are 2 or 3 10mm nuts you remove to access it. You might also want to check the window posts to see if there is any sort of oil residue...also check the rear valves as well...you have to hunt underneath the top cover for them. If the above doesn't help, you're probably going to have to visit your MB dealer and have them run a computer check on your system. That will tell you the exact problem....or all they might have to do is re-set the system. (MORE)
91 octane there should also be a sticker inside the fuel door that will tell you what the cars requirement is
\n \nnearly 3 and a half km/h \n. ++ \n. I think there's a 0 missing there, or a mistaken conversion. 3.5km/hr is slow walking-speed!
yes, i own a 93 300gt, which if you know them you will know that the 93 is the ugly duckling year. 1st gen 91-92 have variable timing, 93 alone have the 1st gen body but a shorter throw for the shifter, and cam sensors. but i am currently running a sohc 3000gt transmission on my dohc.
