Asked by Zielke Jan 08, 2015 at 01:26 PM about the 1991 Dodge Daytona 2 Dr Shelby Turbo Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It has the IROC FMIC, K&N intake, full straight 3" exhaust, upgraded injectors, custom tune, walbro fuel pump, new Garret turbo, MBC set at 16lbs of boost, new ignition, new map sensor, new TPS, new O2 sensor.

All of this was done by the previous owner I bought the car for real cheap and was hoping to restore it. The work was done by mechanics.

I would start with the Fuel pump silinoid. Common issue with the car. Cost about 20 dollars at autozone or any other auto parts store. Also make sure distributor is aligned correctly. Seen it many times the engine will not start because the cap is 180degrees off. (The cap can be installed backwards on the 90 turbo IV VNT 2.2 & 91 Turbo I 2.5L)

If your car has power door locks,get in,don't put the key in,lock and unlock 10 times then try ignition. Daytonas can be finicky.Good luck
