He's really busy with work and such.

and H22Euro-R is finally done with his. but he never likes to post much.

Paco99CL was telling me recently he was looking into boosting his F22, cuz it has low miles and all.

fix my god damn vtec..

you may think that it's not a project but you don't know how long i've been without it/trying to fix it...

after that, get her re-tuned with the addition of the header and 2.5" exhaust.

then..survive winter

My dad and I are looking at getting a 2nd gen Rx-7 and fixing it up as a weekend racer. I wanna throw a small block chevy engine in it, but we'll see how that goes.

The one we might get is a '87 and the interior is in better shape than my cl...it's been babied all its life.

Damn Allan you still haven't gotten that fixed? I'm really wondering wtf is wrong with your car that it doesn't work. Is it definitely the wiring or could it be the head that's on the car?

Not neeaarr as bright as it looks in the pictures...still need about 2 coats of the green and pink to even everything out, then clear coat on the "fresh prince"...debating on whether or not to sand off vtec, i'm actually kind of liking it painted now. Also gotta add a "the" and "of" haha.

I will post an update after I get my price quotes and make arrangements, my Climate Control was a ninja project and I talked about that didn't I? Didn't entice anyone else to talk about their secrets, more to come soon I hope

Well, damn. I was going to keep it a secret but since no one else has any plans, (or just isn't posting about their big projects) I'm retrofitting my headlights.

Just ordered:
Blackhoused DEPO headlights, (cutting off the black bars)
VANS JDM Amber corner spray,
9006 HID kit, (came with the headlights, converting to 9005 for the high beams)
D2S HID kit,

Need next paycheck for:
TSX or BMW 2.5" Projectors,
Angel Eyes or Minigun (or something else) projector bezels.

Also need to figgure out what I'm going to do with the backing. I'm thinking just black vinyl.

Thanks, I'm pretty exited about starting the project too. Yeah, that was just an idea. Thought it would be unique and was toying around with the idea but Angel eyes look way too modern for our 90's cars imo. Would look to out of place for sure. I still can't decide on a bezel! They all look damn sexy. Maybe I'll pick a few and do a poll or something.

Yeah, I do but the left light no matter how much I wetsand still looks a little hazey (just a little but has always bugged the crap out of me) and the right one that was replaced not too long ago but I fudged it up by trying to "cook" out the condensation after my intense car wash.. I have pics and stuff but don't feel like posting them.. I'll post the story and pics when I'm done with my project.

and I needed another set anyway that I could work with so I could still drive the car while I'm working on the project.

I noticed that my car has been pretty bouncy lately & that the motor moves around alot..so i found on another site (which we're not suppose to talk about) a DIY for polyurethane mounts for about 5 bucks.

I decided to go ahead with it since the car was just getting annoying to drive & here's what i got. I only have a pic of the before/after of the passenger mount but you'll get the idea...



and after..



i ended up doing three of the four mounts because i wasn't in the mood to attempt the rear... i'll probably do it during christmas break.

Anyways, all i can say is that this is one of the best/cheapest thing i've done to the car..since i've re-installed them the whole car feels better from just simple downshifts to the actual ride of the car, everything is just smoother.

BUT...i still got no vtec

If your car has no vtec, does it throw up codes or is it something you just notice?

It's worth it whenever you decide to do it, the difference in the ride is night & day..it's soo much smoother..

Ya my speedo works..im gonna retry the wiring (again) but if that doesn't work then i'll do an oil pressure test on the head and go from there..
