Starion Computer

:?: I have an '84 Mitsubishi Starion with the turbo 2.6 4 cyl. My mechanic says the computer ground is shot. Does any one know where to find a used one and what do you look for with one of these? Also, will a computer from another type of vehicle cross over for this car?

What is a "computer ground"? I don't know about cars, but it probably isn't recommended to replace a computer in a car, they're probably made specifically for each model, based on its brakes, parts, etc. The computers are made to "control" the car, so another computer will not do it properly, I guess unless it's from the same model. If it doesn't control it properly, you can get in an accident very easily. Oh yeah, you might want to look at a junk yard.

If the computer is bad you can use one from a Plymouth conquest also it was the same car.

if you want, you could get an aftermarket one that would work, and it would also bump up the hp a little
