    Started noticing a lack of power and throttle response as well as poor gas mileage. Then it threw a code for both o2 sensors. I'm sure they're both good as they've been replaced less then 2k miles ago. Ordering up another set as well as an eBay intake. Then I'll be doing another full tune up in preparation for the warm seasons inevitable modding party.


    New goodies will be available to me soon so I can continue the build and fix some of the cosmetic stuff. Going to start a YouTube channel with the work. Just for shits and giggles and so I can use this fauxpro(fake go pro) my wife bought me for christmas.

    So firstly I've replaced both O2 sensors along with a tps sensor. The combination of those solved my gas mileage issues along with the hesitation. Then I went ahead and replaced my intake filter which had a hole melted through it. I also painted my steelies a very strange bronze/gold color which I ended up liking instead of the black with mostly rust.

    While removing my wheels I found a few frustrating issues(which are easily fixable). Firstly this bushing (or balljoint) is non existent at this point and my rotors are garbage. Which I'll be ordering a new set of control arms that include the bushings(balljoints or whatever they're called) and I'll be ordering new rotors drilled and slotted with new hawk pads.

    Thank you absolutely terrible with the names of parts. (Not a mechanic) almost ordered the wrong parts. And not a bad price at all

    Compiling a list of parts to be had if this wagon doesn't sell. Brakes and rotors, outter tie rods, motor mounts, maybe an entire exhaust if patching the 2 exhaust leaks Isn't as cost effective as a 100$ custom catback.
