98 2.3 cl

98 2.3 CL (automatic.... )
Now alot of people will call this car ricey, but I tried to keep it as clean as possible. I purchased this car bone stock from my uncle for $500. It was dark green with 194,000 on it. I'm at 216,000 and it runs even better now than it first did! It is also my daily driver (until I get a Tahoe) so that has made some mods and things difficult, or simply have been put off. And given the Minnesota winters, and it'll be -60 with wind chill this weekend, this car has been a boss with starting every day!

So here is my list of upgrades, and I know I'm forgetting a ton of little things, but here's the main stuff.

AEM Short RAM intake with K&N nose cone
Double Platinum Autolite plugs with Belden performance wires
DC Headers and manifold, fully custom straight flow exhaust (yet to be put on after snow melts) Engine rebuild and tune coming soon.
DRAG Dr-40 wheels all around, Kumho Ecsta summer tires, Michelin defense winters tires on factory rims.
NAPA Adaptive One brake pads and rotors all around.
NAPA OESpec struts with TEIN lowering coilovers
NAPA Legend 84 month battery with 250+ cca than stock battery.
3 10" Rockford Fosgate HX2s with an watt old school 2000 watt Sony Amp, 500k Scosche capacitor.
2 Polk Audio 4.5" speakers in the front, 2 Kicker 6x9s on the rear deck
Pioneer DEH series Bluetooth Stereo
Spyder 2 front bumper with custom HID fog lamps, LED turn signals in factory headlight housing
Full aftermarket gloss blue/black paint job with chrome trim
LEDs under dash and rear seats that stay on or go with the bass of the music
5-switch panel under stereo to control lights/sound system

Again I know I'm forgetting a ton of stuff, but that's the main portion. I'm new to these forums as a member, but I've used this site for years to help with projects and things. I'll post pictures I have from last summer when I can, but the true beauty will shine though this spring!

Let's add smoked tail lights; blacked out headlight bezel; converted all interior lights to blue LEDs, with the exception of the two above the rear view mirror; heated seat cover (Minnesota livin') and a custom made mesh grille.

Anything else give me ideas because I'll be continuing to do this until either I wreck the car or can't drive it anymore.

Oh yea, increased throttle response a slight increase in gas mileage and sexier exhaust tune.

Current project is to get the old bitch out of the garage and get her road worthy and inspected since she's been sitting for at least a year. On Saturday I took her to the tire shop and got some new Michelin's put in because my Falkens were starting to show steel brading



After that I took her to the car wash and washed all the dirty and dust off her from sitting for so long. Need to get her inspected, get the WW lips back on and actually drive this bitch this summer


She still cleans up well for a 21 year old car though
