i might steal your idea haha
4dred6

^ thanks, it didnt line up with the fenders by like a 1/4 of an inch.
and i also used the filler off the wagon.  but i love how it looks.


does anyone know what the rubber thing on the gas tank/ return line is for?

thanks man
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Good stuff dude.
Edison Carasio

Wow very thorough.
4dred6

so i just started my EX front spindles. ima replace upper and lower ball joints. but i really want to go low. any suggestions on what brand should i get. also should i rock the stock upper c arm, cut and weld the shock towers? also gonna be running the B17 but ill try to raise the whole engine/tranny 1in. motor side is the easiest, i think.  tranny side might be a PITA cuz i have to remove it and weld it one inch higher. and the T bracket one, i will have to cut the firewall otherwise the mount will hit it. i plan to use a 1in spacer on the rear.  with that being said. the hood and VC clearance is another problem, i will run a ef2 front end for sure.  Do you guys have any clue of what is the clearance with b series, hasport mounts and EF jdm spec hood?  

LMK know what u guys think


91 EX spindles, got the complete set for 20 bucks Very Happy

89 LX SOHC ZC

Nice pick up for $20.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

The best $20 you could ever spend right there!
4dred6

thanks guys.
4dred6

haven't done anything to the sedan. just been cleaning my spindles/brakes/. traded my play station 3 for some 513s.
been helping my homie  with his wire tuck, riding the dirt bikes.
helped another friend lower his car. (db1)
4dred6

so today ima re polish my distributor. im also waiting on my aebs manifold to show up.
i'm planing on using a vw scirocco radiator, and a all in fab tucked filler neck.
cuz i don't really want to spend 400 on a radiator. any of you guys using a scirocco one.

also removed the little water line/neck for the fitv




and JB weld it

Looks real good.

Only thing i would point out is that you should definitely run a gasket between your IAT blockoff and the manifold, otherwise you could have a world of pain trying to get your car to idle properly.

Even gasket goo would do.
4dred6

thanks dude, this means a lot coming from u.


yeah i did use a o-ring and a light coat of silicon for the iat.
and for the fitv i also use a gasket and a coat of silicon.



i just order a cam seal,  LCAs, and a 20-piece engine bay
beauty bolts.  all from ebay   Sad . but i think they are good
quality.
