It is FWD based, there is a reason FWD was an option (edit: standard) until the mid 90s. The drivetrain was a FWD longitudal setup and they always had AWD as an option. In the 90s they decided to...
It's FWD-based AWD, as with most AWD vehicles. Rear power bias is only under load.

Disagreeing does not make it less true.
That's what I get out of my 1.5 liter Civic Deathtrap :)
It's not a daily, blow-through carb setups work just fine and are much cheaper to setup and maintain. EFI would mean thousands of dollars in parts, if I were to go that route I would no longer have a...
Scored me a used intake manifold and carburetor at the annual swap meet today for a combined deal of $80.
God, can't even tell you how much want
Considering there actually is Mopar OBD0 (Used in the 80s on K-cars and big EFI vehicles like the trucks with Holley EFI or the Fifth Avenue and such) you shouldn't actually call it that, just...
Remember that time I brought this up
Actually, post-operation the only real risks are cosmetic deformities. Yeah, it sucks ass right now, but once you get fixed up you'll be no worse off than before. Good luck with it. Everything will...
1992 is the year the Prelude got ugly, and I'm sorry but that's just the truth. The wedge looked great, the proto-wedge looked great, and the mini-muscle 'lude was great. The Nostril-Nose and Kawaii...
Oh god that is the WORST Prelude front end
Why would you even want that
The nostrils absolutely kill it for me
Your 98 is only equivalent to our 93, which is standard premium for us here in America in most places (unless you live somewhere where they hate driving or something, idk. Some places only got 91.)...
I get that it's rare and all, but that's twice the mint value of a '93 Cobra with those options.
The average for a clean '93 Cobra is just under $10k and on the highest end of absolutely mint is...
He's in Australia. That stuff only applies to American models. That is a proper 1985 Z31.
Why did it not have power steering? They all have it. It's not optional. The only optional extra on the C4 was whether the roof was transparent or not, and your choice of transmission. There were...
C4s come with power steering, mine does not have power steering though.
It's getting there!
Ah, yes. Falling in love with this car all over again.
You can buy an actual REPUTABLE Chinese brand 200-250cc bike for half that. Lifan's a great brand to go with. Not quite that Jap build quality but still reliable enough to be driven, and there are...
I've changed so many of those starters that it seems almost trivial that someone can't replace it easily. You just do the ol' reach-around.
Now, the Porsche 911 flat 6 starter...
Actually, the bumpers, fenders, door skins... Most of that car is cheap fiberglass or plastic. To reduce cost and weight. All 1993-2003 F-body cars are like this.
Early Turbostang, not bad.
You're not crazy, but you're not right. It's the swooping quarter panel giving that illusion.
I can dig it
I believe the Holley HP series are made with nitrophyl floats now, pretty much any alcohol-ready carb is going to be boost-ready (modern carbs anyways). There's a nice 500cfm Holley that should be...
Nitrophyl floats, o-ring the butterfly shafts, and remove the choke.
If you have a carb with a vacuum secondary, you need to convert to mechanical.
You'll want to drill and tap a hole in the...
Finally put my new tires/wheels on the 'vette today and also ran out of gas.
That's an H23 out of a prelude, not an H22
widely regarded as the worst F/H series engine ever made
Another pic of this rusty black lump of metal
Distributor harness is all spliced in... going to...
You should pay it now instead of going to court. It'll save you money in court fees.
There was no paperwork for sale, it was a cash deal at an obviously non-reputable scrapyard (or someone saying they worked for one).
You don't know the entire story apparently. I know you're a COP...
That is legally a stolen vehicle, by all technical means. Report it and have this shit stopped before it ends up costing YOU money.

OR jail time for the ran tolls.
No VTEC in that picture m8
For "not being a honda guy" I sure buy a lot of Hondas.
Isn't that what we all wish for?
Quite obviously just 240SXs.
I mean, it's California after all.
Christ, $300 "less" for insurance. My insurance company would be PAYING me to have full coverage at that point.
It looks great but what are the torque specs
You have called a 110-pound man a fatass
I'll have a number nine, a number nine large, a number six with extra sauce, a number seven, two number forty-fives, one with cheese, and a large soda.
spd is a nice idea but now that "MANUAL" is included in the ad when someone lists a car that is equipped with a manual, it can find them much easier.
It's a Murena! :)
26th March 2014
Looking over it, I've realized that it's the car the Murena replaced, which is a Matra (thought technically they both are). A Matra...
You.... You do know you can type "Manual" and hit return and it'll bring up all cars with manual transmissions, right? (and some others, like "want to trade for manual", but still...)
Sounds like low compression/poor timing. Check that the timing belt is on in the correct position (and hasn't jumped a tooth or something) and do a compression test.
If there are any CEL codes,...
Massive vacuum leak. Check intake and throttlebody gaskets, and anything else that has an air seal on the intake. Best way is to take carb/tb cleaner and spray all over the intake, when the revs drop...
Do an alltrac swap then weld the center diff and pull the front axles because you love wasting money
Did some test fitting today
Much better than black-painted salad shooters, I think I like them
Needs moarlow doe
