i would suggest egt and oil, get a pretty good idea how things are going from those two. especially if you like to run in boost a wideband afr is nice if you are going to be doing any of your own tuning, if you are running an AP then i am not certain it is as necessary. there are other things, like a nice matching functional clock, if you are running any accessories like thumping stereo, a basic juice meter. the list goes on, but i think the two for certains are egt and oil. silly question, do you already have a boost gauge?

the edges of the 5/6 grill stick out further toward the front of the bumper .. making the grill look deeper set

Oil Pressure - Stock idiot light only tells you when its too late.
EGT - General idea of how your car is feeling.
Water Temp - Stock temp guage is worthless, again only moves when its too late.

Those are the three guages I would get if I could only have 3.

Not now, cause you posted in it

I think we need to do a brewforia meet one of these weekends, a Friday or Saturday I think would be best since I for one don't like drinking anything on Sunday just because I have to work the next day. What do you guys think.

Besides, didn't someone say earlier that the wives got bored at the last meet? This would be perfect for us guys. Unless you don't drink of course.

A few of us from IMS get together at the Brewforia by the Qdoba at Eagle and Overland. It's always on a Thursday at 7:00.

Sadly, I have been toying with the idea of selling the wagon as of late. Right now just a thought (unless the right offer came along), but has been on my mind. What do you guys think? The money could bring on even more possibilities for me and who knows, maybe I could build another one some day.

nate would be so sad to see it go, but what do you use it for other than dd? might make the most sense to part ways and see what you can get for all the amazing things you have on it

on the other hand, you will never be able to have something just the same, and you might regret it

Are you sure you will, that's what I thought. I'm still driving the ZX3. Paid for!

That has crossed my mind, could get an older obs and make something decent in the interim. Mostly paid off, small loan on it, mostly from the 6 speed swap.

The alternative is a CNC mill, if things go well may have something better some day... Last tool for my shop I don't have, other than a lathe.

What happened to the old fender? smashed all to hell? The reason I ask is I am looking for some beat up ish sedan fenders to cut the flares off of.
I would have to ask one of the resident experts more about the year fitment, The old fender is smashed at the edge where it meets the h/lamp

Would you be willing to let the fender go for cheap?

Sorry if I got you're hopes up a little, I had "wingless" trunk in my head. If it was wingless I would consider it.
