Just finished the IMRC project. Glad I found this how-to and saved myself some money for once.

Since we cant find a replacement spring, I went to the local auto parts and found a carb return spring with a long shapeable end. The other end is round and slips over the screw head (we installed in the old DSI lever/clip) to hold the cable in place. I found a convienient place on the firewall to secure the long end so it holds the manifold butterflies shut and then bent and cut off the excess.
So far it works great and was under $2.00..

Does anyone know when IMRC'n is suppose to move, my move at 6200rpm which I think is way too high. Does anyone know when the IMRC should move, or maybe someone can go out and look at his own car? (Just stand beside and look at the DSI clip while someone else hit the trottle)

I get error code P1518, but are not noticing anything wrong except that IMRC'n moving at such a high rpm ...

Thanks!

I found the right way to remove it, is by either:
1. you can push the nylon head in -OR-
2. rotate the cable until the slot head aligned with the holder bracket and you should be able to slip off through the side.


Good luck.

I have to try this again. I have my saturday project planned now. Gave up on this months ago. Also I have to find a screw to fix the dsi. Broke that trying to pry the cable out.
