  1. Not having luck with the gofundme either
  2. Call me a communist, I'd be afraid to over-rev, not to diminish the excellence in this thread.
  3. Somehow you started a blog post instead of a regular thread. But I believe the best are 05+
  4. What kind (brand, size) of tires are you using? These cars love to plow but I bet you could get more traction.
  5. Lol, your plenum definitely makes that job easier. Nice attention to detail on the build, cool to see this much power going in an auto car. Have you considered doing an accumulator mod like the rwd guys do on the aw-70s? Faster shfits, etc. iirc supposed to helps trans stay cooler by limiting bypass of fluid in shifts.
  6. How much of an issue is blowby at your power level? Does the blowby at your power level totally overwhelm the stock setup?
  7. Sorry to hear about your motor but I can't believe I just watched an 850 go 208 mph...

    Project 95

    I miss the old wheels :( That being said this makes me want my green wagon back. Love the stance on this thing. Very laid back but well put together looking car edit, whats the rear suspension set up on this thing? TA coilovers?
  9. Can you elaborate on this method? (sorry for threadjack)
  10. Looks great! Looking forward to hearing this bad boy run
  11. Haha gotta love that banjo. What I did to my car the past few days: Figured out why one of the speakers in my civic wasn't working; missed a speaker wire when I installed a newer head unit. Also finally put in a new antenna (now I can actually listen to the radio, imagine that). Also also never used the pass side window because it would get stuck on the way back up. Re-adjusted that sucker and now I can roll down both my windows (I know guys, I know.) The crappy aftermarket window cranks last about 6 months, I need to find some OEM replacements. Right now I'm using a vicegrip Before this I went through two brand new (remanufactured) alternators trying to make the charging light go off. Finally bit the bullet and bought new from amazon (Prime, 2-day shipping, can't be mad) and the light is out. Pretty scary that two major parts distributors both sold defective products.
  12. Awesome work man, and I love that shift knob. Looks right at home in the interior.
  13. ​44 mph? On the highway? My trip was averaging closer to 110 kph. I'm not sure how the final drive of the 4spd auto and 5spd compare, if at all.
  14. Don't mean to derail thread, but 36mpg in an awd? How fast were you averaging? Anybody else in the car? I got 28 over 1000 miles in my awd w/ 3 people and thought that was pretty good.
  15. Very awesome documentation and attention to detail!
  16. Not mine but had to share...pulled the plugs out of a customer/friends 01 s40 @146k which was running rough...they were original.
