Nice! I love those, my brother law had a Cichlid tank too but for some reason they started to die off, he switched over to salt last year.

Lol thought I disappeared huh? I got a couple of updates for ya. I was between jobs the last couple of weeks. Finally quit staples and got myself a life changing job. yea it was that bad over at staples...

Anyway... I'm still looking for a head to replace my cracked one. I drive the car here and there no place to far.

Just got a heat blanket for the turbo, gotta install that also.

Template is cut for the splitter, I just need to start the fiberglassing (when it gets warmer)

Coilovers came this morning, i'm just waiting on random bushings, endlinks and other suspension related stuff to come in before I install them.

I finally cleared out that stock intercooler crap and did the front mount. I did not notice much lag at all... I didn't quite finish since we got done late, I parked it up and left it. Things that are left to do:

- fix all that random wiring
- run extended hoses for the intake
- secure intake
- remove intercooler reservoir
- clean up engine bay

I got rid of that crappy ugly dirty shift boot lol

I shall check your thread out. The boot was from ebay, at first I couldn't get it on the metal ring but I pulled the ends to stretch it a bit and it fit nice and snug. I didn't see any with the black stitching but I didn't look really cause I wanted one to match the nardi wheel I was looking at.

heres the link: http://stores.ebay.com/AutumWish/Shift- ... 34.c0.m322

Yea my OEM one was all sticky and weird.

Now I just need one of these: :twisted:

Thx about the cichlid tank. Ya it's hard to take care of them specialy when you have many from different islands. They will fight for the territory.

Also keep up the good work fellas. Eventually I'll post some stuff or make my own project thread. My car is slowly comming along finally:)

haha.

Started cleaning up the engine bay last week. I'm sitting here trying to figure out what else I can remove. I did the cruise control and started the egr delete. My friend is making the block off plates for me.

I'm debating on removing the evap cansiter...

I re-routed the throttle cable so its not in the way anymore.

I'm also thinking about getting rid of the AC since its leaking and doesn't work anyway but i dunno yet...

I think theres a couple of stock intercooler related bits I need to remove like random hoses and brackets but ill be doing that tomorrow.

Yea so I havent touched the car since my last post. LOL.

Battery was dead, we jumped it and drove it to the gym last night and shes good now. I started installing the blitz EBC, cleaned out all the junk that was accumulating in the car and vacuumed the carpet.

I'm trying to find some freaking floor mats for the damn thing, would mats from a corolla or something fit?

My friend linked me to a few parts on craigslist, mainly the head which is really what this car needs. Once we get that, we're gonna drop the motor and pull it apart and put it right back together with fresh parts.

NYS inspection due this month but everything's good. Headlights work, blinkers have blinker fluid and brake pads are still new. Tires are brand new too...

OH and im not sure if you guys know or not. I had no intention of spending 200+ on a window switch. Found out the supra ones fit perfectly fine and they are around 30 bucks!@

The only minor thing is the buttons dont fill out the holes correctly but other than that its an EXACT fit screw holes and all. Now I had my old switch but I did not want to swap the switch covers before I broke something. =P

Lights work too!@!

If it does, I don't know if it helps anyone, here's a little fix/bandaid fix.

The driver's side has a auto-down option, now if you try to hit the other side of that button, it doesn't move at all. all you have to do is open it up, break a little tab that's preventing that button from being pressed, and you'll have another button for up, instead of using that little tab. Also as a bonus, you'll have an auto-up option now too!

That's a neat trick. Always good to know. When I took my original switch apart to fix it I couldn't put it back together. LOL

I haven't done anything else to this car since then. Its been parked up while I was sorting out my insurance issue and now its up for sale or i'll be trading it to my friend. :cry:

Great car and wish I could keep and build it but I can't.

Wish I didn't have to! Had lots of plans for it, but its now in the hands of my good friend so its not going to far. My insurance rate wasn't getting any better and I can't see shelling out over 200$ a month for a car I drive twice a month.
