“Fix it right the first time"
On the Driverside theres the steering rack, the passenger it’s the ps pump and alternator. The RH side sticks out further to give room for the lower radiator hose and alternator removal(inevitably will die based on how close the header is)
Got the first exhaust manifold mocked up
The whole front suspension and drivetrain will get laid down and then pulled out the front, you can see where the radiator support was cut out. The new radiator will need a different support further out anyways to make room for the turbos
Rust, mileage not listed, the most expensive mod is the rims yet they talk about sinking money into it.
The sperpentine belt needed to be replaced about 2 years ago and as a result this one is almost cut into 2 down the center. And even though this is my brother's car I really like it so I'll continue posting about it as though it were mine.
More details eventually
Then they pull up with a much larger number the day of purchase, classic craigslist.
1995 Civic Dx 1.5 non-vtec automatic, +200k miles 16 bent valves from my failed HG repair, ended up lowing it and cracking the transmission on a “pothole”(crater). Learned to drive with this car, mostly before I got my license.
How could they trust it? Asking price is $1500 so that’s tempting, but not really because it’s at least a $4000 car if you want to use it.
The sc’s full size steel spare has been replaced with this 17" Enkei rx8 spare that can accommodate bigger brakes.(and obviously weigh less)
About 250ft/lb of torque and 204whp, dyno graph starts a little late because we didn’t want the car to downshift(after the jump). Made alot more then I was expecting through a 4 speed auto.
Well today’s no different, I present to you the $500 elantra with 270,600 miles smogged and ready to go.
All other opinions are false
Also evident is the lesser known Door Handle Consumption
Ruined the quarter panels, altered the suspension, and found a couple,”exciting” this that need to be fixed. More after the jump.
Apparently that side swipe damage was actually a side impact.
