im sorry but i chuckled at this. Look at the picture of my car buried in my gallery and you can little idea about how bad it gets here sometimes. Last winter we had over 2 1/2 months of consecutive days with snow on the ground. However last winter was particularly bad.

haha that's ok. i suppose i should say it gets cold here to me.
we get temps in the teens-20s-30s, no snow, but the humidity stays high so the cold can be bone chilling (again to me)
we only get ice/sleet/freezing rain/little snow a few times a year, but it is just different here & i am glad of that :)

email me with what you have and we'll see ;)

my battery kit is compleatly installed now along with the eighth circle of hell known as the clutch line (the 9th circle is reserved for the 3 infamous coolant lines). Also did simbas home depot mod for the speedsource crossmember mounts, some rubber washers which will hopefully eliminate some of the vibration.

i guess the only thing left is the ss brake lines and the bov. Ive got a bunch of pics ill post up next week.

It runs. I started it yesterday and sounds good.

it was however short lived. The bayareaaAT throttle inlet promply blew apart at 8psi. It wasnt even welded, it looks like it was superglued. Between him shorting me on tbolt clamps, giving me the wrong silicone adapter for my intake, and some of the pipes were slightly bent when i got them, im pretty disapointed in his products. Now this?

Luckly a local mr2 guy is willing to let me borrow his, so ill grab his stock one tonight. The radiator works wonderfully too.

Well after "modifying" the 91 mr2 throttle inlet with a hack saw last night, it runs. Ive driven it around 10 miles. I want to get some new gas in there since its been sitting for a few weeks. Ill probably get a couple gallons of race gas turn the boost up to 14 psi this weekend and see how it does :D i like the clutch feel with the ss clutch line and

i still havent heard from bayareaAT yet but i want him to reimburse me for the cost of an ats racing throttle inlet which ill cut correctly to be short enough. I dont care about the other things since Ive already taken care of them
