Hi,
I had a hard time to find the right : Fuel Filter,Airfilter, Spark Plugs and its gapping,
I tried Lordco and Canadian Tire all of them are not listing the TURBO Sprint.
I did a search here and on google but came up with little info.
It would be nice to have all the common Maintanance Parts like: type and weight of transmission Lubricant ,type and weight of Motor oil ,Antifreeze,Timing Belt, Clutch, brake shoes and Pads ,Rotors etc. all listed in one Article with reference to its Parts Number and Supplier perhaps. and specific to the Turbo Version There is a confusing amount of Info on the forum that applies to eithe Metro GTI sprint or others sometimes it refers to the Type of Vehicle other times you have to read the entire article only to find out that it does not apply to your Vehicle and other times it does not mention the Model at al;l
Just an observation and my Opinion
Thank you
Joerg

Hi
T3 Ragtop.
Thanks for the Reply, just don't know what to make of it?
Since they never sold any Turbos in the USA it must even be harder for you to find any reference thereof.

Where is Knuckles when you need him? ;) If I had the time and still worked at Canadian Tire, I definitly would have tried to do this.

I highly recommend replacing the fuel filter (or at least the one in the original location) with a chunk of rubber fuel hose, and then mounting a Ford 5.0L V8 fuel filter (off of a F-150) in your engine bay. Takes 10 minutes instead of 2 hours to change the filter. As for spark plugs, I forget off the top of my head what the specific NGK G-power number is (I could check tomorrow). I want to say gap is around 42 thou. There is no replacement air filter for the turbo cars anymore (AFAIK), however, K&N 33-2050-1 (meant for a geo storm/isuzu impulse) will fit, and on sale shouldn't run you more than $55cdn.

I have been busy trying to out do you. :razz:
http://www.teamswift.net/album_page.php?pic_id=9212

Hi Professor, Welcome to the site, I actually work for lordco and own 2 turbos and 2 GTi's. Bite me hitemp. :lol: Just Razzin ya.

If you need help with parts just PM me.
The problem with our Turbo's is they are a Canadian only car, and most catalogues and parts suppliers think they are a regular Sprint 1.0 NA.
Plus the parts suppliers are US , and they have never seen one or any of these cars.
In most cases parts are the same with a few exceptions.
Hitemp has found and used a number of parts that seem to work for him, and we have all learned from what he has done and tried to do.
Havin a sticky for parts reference is a great idea, but not all members like certain brands. Also some members don't have stock cars, they have modified things and are using parts that may not work in a stock situation.
I have a list I have made at work for all the tunup parts.

Edit! Please note these are for 89-91 MK2 Factory Turbo cars.

NGK Vpower # is 5799 good plug for the stock turbo
Fram Fuel filter G6677 a bitch to change
Fram PCV valve FV325 change it every 10,000k on a hi mile engine.
Niehoff cap WA476A same for any 3 cyl
Niehoff rotor WA374 same for any 3 cyl
Bosch wires OE fit great stuff 09239 lifetime warranty
Dayco fan belt 5030323 unless you have AC
Dayco Timing belt 95166 all the same 89-91
Dayco timing belt tensioner 84060 replace it with the timing belt always.
These are just some of the parts I remember.
Tranny fluid for MT I reccomend the AC Delco Synchro fluid takes 2.5 liters expensive but worth it.
Contact me anytime I will do my best to help

Hey Professor!
I have a question about your car, what year is it?
Your profile does not say where your located and what car you have.
Looking at your posts your from Salmon Arm, but they never made a 92 turbo car.

now you guys have done it! :lol:

there are 2 specific models for the turbo3, the 87 -88 chevy sprints (which the US did get so parts can still be found) and the 89 -91 models, chevy sprint, pontiac firefly, and geo (i have seen parts listings for geo metro turbo cars.)

when you start mixing the parts numbers for the 2 separate models, you're asking for confusion. :D

maybe we should have 2 stickies, one in each forum section, in which to list part numbers for the corresponding mark I and mark II models.

Good point Richard.
I edited My post that the parts listed are for 89-91 MK2 turbo cars.
When I get time I will start a list for the MK1 cars.

If you take a look in my personal galley all the available walker exhaust listings are shown with diagrams and parts #'s.
Although most people on this site including me go custom, for better performance and looks.

Purolator part number for MKII Turbo Air filter: A24802, available at T&T auto parts.

Also, a lot of the suspension and braking parts, IE Rotor, Calipers are the same as the Convertable 3Cyl.

rotors and calipers on a turbo sprint aren't the same as the convertable ones.

You sure dude? Whenever I go get parts I usually have to help em find part numbers, and usually the end result is "Oh, it's the same part numbers as a vert".

That's how I got my rotors and calipers from T&T in town when I needed em. Of course I got the wrong ones first and had to get em swapped with my car half ripped apart, but y'know.

mk1 brakes are smaller.
but easily adaptable to the bigger brakes, by swapping knuckles.

oh yeah, here we go again with a sticky on turbo cars and i keep forgetting the mk1 cars.

to qualify this, i put the drilled and slotted rotors for a mk2 sprint turbo onto my vert. you can use the vented mk2 rotors on a mk1 car if you swap the steering knuckles and calipers from a vert or mk2 t3 car, too.

When i went to lordco, i recieved, and have put side by side calipers from a turbo and a vert, and there is a difference, vert's are smaller unless for some reason the calipers i saw weren't even verts and they got it totally mixed up. Aside from that A few people have seen different studs for the rotors on there cars.

maybe im wrong...who know's. Just talking from what i've encountere'd recently

the biggest problem for me is that the usa only had the mk1 turbo3 until 1988. you guys up north got the mk2 turbo3 and i can only make comparisons based on what i have imported for myself and from online parts sources that list numbers for comparisons.

having fully researched the vert brakes and having ordered and used turbo3 brake parts on my own verts i can safely state that the mk2 turbo3 and vert braking system is the same. i've used the vert brakes to upgrade the tiny standard metro front brakes on my hoopty mk3 standard 3 door.

i have not done a mk1 to mk2 knuckle conversion as an upgrade, i've only spoken with guys who have used the vert brakes and knuckles to upgrade their mk1 cars. i think that the mk1 to mk2 conversion has been pretty well documented by the mk1 guys.

If anyone is needing an air filter for MK2 T3 they are available from NAPA, part number 36162. Fits perfect.
