boags74 another newbie, well convert maybe.
Just scored myself a 1990 gd mx6. in fair condition and found this forum. doesn't look very well used of late.
anyways, I have been modifying cars since I was 12 (28 yrs ago), so anyone got any questions they need answered, ask away.

Kingjbag First time owner of an mx6 here and boy did I get a 'project'
I got a 1989 mx6 gt turbo 4ws

Suspension has been done by an ape and needs replacing
Investigated nasty sounds coming from the engine, so far I think is only lifters (fingers crossed)
The drivers door doesn't open from the outside
The climate control appears fine (all switches work, AC compressor raises idle, lights etc work) only problem is. Not a single fan speed works -_-
Minor oil leak from head gasket.
Ricer spec exhaust with mandatory Elizabeth-spec 3inch hole under dump pipe

It needs some love. I know this is an old thread but is there anybody in adelaide that has done work on their engines? I've never worked on a car this new (old ride was a ke70) first thing I need to do is to source (preferably locally) and install new lifters. Can anyone help me out with that?

Also I found some old rims on a gen 2 (96 I think) mx6, will they fit on mine?

Thanks guys. I hope we can get this thread started again and maybe do a cruise sometime, preferably when it's fixed hahaha

Ahh nice!

No it wasn't reffering to that, but funilly enough that is where my car came from back in 2002.

Any mods done to the MX?

I was recently looking at buying another GD TX5/626 Turbo (couldn't help myself ) but they are getting pretty long in the tooth now and I havent been able to find one which hasnt been to hell and back. I looked at a couple of GE's as well, but unfortunately they are much in the same boat - I should have kept my first TX5 Turbo because it was better than all of the ones Ive looked at since haha.

Feel free to post up some pics of your ride.

tx5turbo Hey, welcome to the forums.

Turbo timers, boost controllers, blow off valves, too low, too loud, frayed seatbelts, non-ADR approved steering wheel, blue parkers, HID headlight globes, bent numberplates, tinted tail lights, rims bigger than 17", wheels sticking out beyond guards, guages on the A pillar or top of dashboard, oil leaks, bald tyres etc etc.

What sort of car do you have?
