    Very much considering going back to stock springs, or stock springs minus part of a coil (have to do the math on this). I miss suspension travel.

    Anyone want some H&Rs minus a coil?

    Not today, but most recent things, Apexi intake and OBX cat back.
    Definitely improved acceleration, fantastic on the highway. the trade off being a few less city mpg's.

    It no longer feels like shoving a watermelon through a funnel x)

    Tried starting my 280zx after not ruining for nearly a year. It cranked and spun, but didnt start for the first 2 tries. Third try it just clicked like a dead battery, but it did the same thing with jumper cables attached.

    Noticed the vacuum line to the part in the blue box was torn off. And there was fuel coming out of the hose in the red box.

    Awesome. Looks like I need to get some generic hoses to replace these before I try again.

    Last week I went to start my '92 beast (Vancouver BC) after being away for 4 months in Boston. I had been driving it a lot before that. While I was away, my daughters only drove it a few times and then parked it in the underground parking at our condo. The relatively new battery lost its charge and is too weak to crank the engine. I will try to eventually get it charged (despite a scarcity of wall plugs and a no wrenching rule in our building).

    I'd love to donate it to a six sphere member (free) but you are all so far away. :-(. There are good parts , running drivetrain and a fairly solid body in it.

    That tan interior makes that 1g interior look pretty good. Better than the standard black.

    Today was day 2.5 of GM performance clutch, fidanza alum flywheel, upgraded slave cylinder and FE5 (alum) suspension arm install on our Redline. Just got the trans bolted back to engine tonight, so hard part is done. Now it's just reassembly.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    I like the flat red paint on the muffler, kind of reminds of the old school red Thrush mufflers. What kind of paint did you use for that? How loud is that muffler?

    Finally did my wiper delete. I gave up on looking for a grommet in the junkyard and just ordered a universal delete kit from Amazon for 7$. It fit and has rubber sealers to keep water out. Looks better then the wiper motor hanging out there.

    Thank you ^^ It's VHT Flame proof paint, the muffler is part of the OBX catback witch has a straight through resonator and muffler. The sound is a lower on the spectrum, it's like a 120db bass speaker opposed to a weed waker.

    Tightened input shaft bolt on 1999 SW. Amazingly it worked! I recently got Saturn SW and was disappointed to find out that it had no reverse and no 2nd After lil research on internet, many suggested that input shaft bolt is loose. Turned out to be that's the case.
    Bit of hassle to get that front cover off and finding right socket, but job was done. Success!

    i'd bring a portable jump pack, start it with that, then let the alternator do the rest. as for giving it away, i have a friend in bc but i dunno if he wants a car. whatever the case don't junk it! particularly since i get the impression saturns are a lot less common there.
