loyale performance?

Recommended Posts

okay, My dad bought a 92 loyale for a daily driver, how are some cheap ways to get more power out of it?

 

Drill holes in the airbox

no muffler or turbo muffler

anything else?

Check the archives, but not much is available without getting into the engine, drilling the airbox, or remiving the bottom entirely only adds 2 cfm of flow to the intake track, so realistically adds .66 hp. the exhaust on the subies is tuned for low end torque so i would leave it that way for good round town traveling. unless you go into the engine you can't really get much more hp

I did the following performance mods to my 92 Loyale, 4WD, auto:

 

* NGK spark plugs

* Bosh high capacity wires

* Drilled Air box bottom

* K&N air filter

* removed 2nd cat-converter

 

It runs a little better now. But it's only a 90 HP engine and with the automatic it's slow. But it still handles great, has awsome 4WD, and is a blast to drive.

 

:D

Might wanna complement all those fancy ignition components with a real coil that will utilize them :) Like the Super Stock. Maybe someone can kick you a part number? Mine isnt handy.

 

Peace

I would cut the whole bottom from the intake box, or adapt a K&N cone filter to the MAF.

 

You can advance the timing a few deg and run 93 octance fuel for a few more ponies. Then a glasspack would complement that well. New plugs (NGK), wires, coil, dist cap and rotor would clear things up a free up some lost power...

What kind of millage should I be getting with my 92 Loyale, 4WD, auto?

 

It is only between 12 and 19 Mpg.

 

I did a lot of "tune up" work (see previous post) but still have a 35 (Purge Control Valve) so I gotta go to the junk yard in Wayland tomorrow to scrouge for a new one, because the dealer wants $102 for a new one.

 

Do all Auto, Loyales get lousy gas millage?

What else should I check?!

 

 

:confused:
