The Good:
- AWD
- Aluminum hood
- Rallitek short throw
- Greddy shift knob
- steering wheel
- KYB's
- H&R springs
- Apexi N1 catback?
- RS style body conversion
- Silverstar lights
- Eclipse headunit
- Bridgstone Potenza RE950's
- VERY light (no power anything including no ABS)
- 55% tint all the way around...really clean looking!

The Bad:
- small dent in the trunk
- rear drums
- interior not 100%
- clutch is almost gone
- only the 1.8l with high mileage(which is good too cuz made it cheap!)
- needs pedals (clutch cover is MIA)
- no airbags (which can also be good I guess?!)
- no TACH


In order of what we have planned:

-clutch
-wheels (prob my bent 16's he can fix...paint them gunmetal/black 4 now)
-big brakes and rear conversion
-bushings
-engine swap... NA vs. turbo...EJ20,22,25 ???

Thanks and hope we get the clutch in soon and get it out to the meets! (BTW it's for my brother but I had to buy it becase he's only 17)

I was thinking about that...but I think the easiest and smoothest looking might be a small tach with an adjustable shift light. But that'll be way down the road. Not like we're racing it or high revving it any time soon.


Thanks for the input tho for sure!

Glad that car found a good home. Should be a great car for your brother once you get that new clutch in.
