    Jim are they really that common in the states? I've only ever seen one when I was down there and I've never seen one up here before. We only got Mitsu here a couple years ago and I'm not sure if we ever got the Chyrsler Conquest up here

    Hey you guys I will see if the two turbo starions are still in the junkyard. I can't wait to see the results. I will let you know what I have come up with. as per RSDEO said... that if no one tries we would not know what the results are..

    BTW... If the starion rims came in four lugs I would all over it.

    Good info and possibilities on the Starion front hubs.

    Even though the bearings may be the same, make sure that the spacing between the inner and outer is also the same.

    The rear disc setup that I am working on for the Mk2 wusing 300ZX rear calipers is progressing, but I still have to sort out an issue with caliper clearance to allow legal rod registration here in Australia. One option is to keep the std setup until I clear this hurdle and then revert to the revised setup afterwards

    Cheers

    That is the only thing that concerns me. That is why I need to pick up a set of hubs to try it.

    www.tristarion.com and www.starquestclub.com both have tons of info. There aren't that many Starquests around, but many go for next to nothing.

    Norbie: Starions were available in Australia. They are flat bodied, as opposed to the wide body pic posted above, with a 2.0 4G63 variant. I don't believe they ever got the wheels posted above. They did, however, get the cool, scooped hood which was only available here in 1983.

    Flat-bodies in the states at least are non-intercooled:


    An Aussie Quest:

    The caption from Star Quest Club:
    "Sydney, Australia Starion enthusiast, Charles Sarkis
    owns this fully rebuilt 1983 JA Starion. It has a 2L 4G63 Sirius
    engine and currently does mid-13's at the track with a
    stock turbo (TC06 11A). "

    Not sure about those rims......

    Yes we did get the flat bodied Starions in Aus, but they are only 4 stud, not 5.

    Only the later unleaded cars (the JD's) came with 15 x 7" rims.

    And that Black Starion just goes to show how you can make a car ugly by fitting the wrong rims.

    **REARS**

    Here is the info of the rears.

    1982-1985 Toyota Supra rear wheel bearings.

    Inner 0513898 ID is 44.7mm/ OD is 55mm/ Thickness 13mm
    Outer 0513812 ID is 35mm/ OD is 60mm/ Thickness 16.70mm

    1987-1989 Mitsubishi Starion rear wheel bearings

    Inner 0513442 ID is 29.95mm/ OD 62mm/ Thickness 16mm
    Outer 0513608 ID is 35mm/ OD is 72mm/ Thickness 17mm

    We should be able to find the right bearing to make it all work.



    I wonder if the starion axle is the same length and if our rear flange will fit it? We might get lucky.

    The plot thickens.

    Been there, done that. Slightly different length, different spline count,
    different rear inner hub mount and offset...
