I should fill them with cavity wax or something now that we're talking about it.

I am sort of worried about my D15 exploding because it means I will have to hurry up and finish fixing up the cheap-shit D16Y8 turbo I bought from some other rando.

That's a whole other thread, though.

I bought this thing last November. Let's go over what's going on with it.

It looked like shit when I first bought it for $700 from some rando who used it for transporting herself to her dead-end retail job before her and her husband found out about the miracle of financing a new Kia

New corner markers because the passenger side was cracked, check out that hail damage:

I also replaced the shocks with an $80 set of DC Integra shocks I bought from a dude that I found who lived near my house.

The radio doesn't work because Honda soldered the fucking fuse in:

Check out how bent the old suspension was, the tire looks like a Stegosaurus:

Somehow my tail lights are rusty:

Why did I buy new tires, the fucking Canadian Tire morons didn't do them right and they leak like crazy

But it drives places

and I painted the wing mirrors

and I put a dead pedal in it

then the ECU died so i was like "oh shit" and had to get the thing towed home

I bought this ECU to get me around until then, believe it or not it wasn't chipped

then I recapped the original P06 ECU (fucking C14) so now it runs great

then I bought three sets of 13" winter tires for $9.64 a tire on warehouse clearout so I am going to stud them and ice race this bitch

and that's the story of my Honda

It's been almost a year since the last update in this thread. Let's update:
  • Put in a transmission mount
  • Painted winter wheels
  • Went on vacation in Japan
  • Put in a cheap-shit pitch stop mount
  • Put new headlight bulbs in it
  • Put steering rack bushings in it
  • Bought an EG Civic, see other thread
  • Transmission crossmember fell out of car
  • Replaced front control arms with lower-mileage wagon arms, freshened up control arm bushings
  • Replaced front swaybar bushings
  • Helicoiled hogged out hole left behind in captive nut by transmission crossmember bolt
  • Taped up rattling clips and added some sound deadening

Never got around to replacing that axle.

Good looking cars you've got there. Now how about some posts about that Jeep?

Other updates, since last updates:

  • Redid the struts for no real reason
  • Oh yeah right, it was for strut tops, bump stops and bellows
  • New thermostat, rad hoses
  • New axle
  • Another new axle, because the first one exploded
  • Whiteline rear strut bar
  • Evap fix
  • Rolled over 300,000 km

It still needs another new axle before the winter hits.

  • Put a stereo in, JVC KD-X310-BT
  • New lower ball joints
  • New wing mirror
  • New passenger side front axle
  • New ball joint
  • New windshield
  • New struts

Still needs a buncha suspension work - needs new strut tops and bump stops. I feel like the tie rods are dickered. Hope the wheel bearings are OK.

Update: the 2004 STI suspension is gone because I broke a strut, strut top and seriously compromised a ball joint and axle on the right front. :(

I have so many parts that still need to go in.

Would you describe that turbo as "sufficient?"

Bricks have really evaporated from my local market lately :(

Get me some spare quadrajets so we can run them on Slung Blade's Whoronet when we figure out which greybeards are holding onto dual quad manifolds at the swap.
