I think there's another guy here that lives in ABQ like me, making ~3 total, and then another in Rio Rancho which is basically a suburb of ABQ...Pretty interesting if you ask me, it is a big city but still.
My car was covered in bird shit after being parked under some power lines where the birds sit, took it to the car wash and most of it is still there. If you need a job doing, do it yourself. Once it's properly clean I'll get another picture up.
that's a very magazine / surreal image because of that flash
Yaint gonna catch the midnight rider.

My bad side is no longer that bad in the front, at least it all lines up and looks good in the wet.
I don't know if I care for the license plate frame, it keeps getting bent out of shape for some reason and the only thing which keeps it from bent seems to be a frame.. It looks terrible since it gets messed up without, and terrible with.
Fuck Oregon and their front plate laws, every SUV and "muscle" car around here doesn't but soon as an import takes their off they get a ticket without even a warning first..
Whilst we're on about number plates...
I need to replace my plates soon (subject to a possible MOT failure), I guess I'm lucky in that I can (legally) have a choice. As about a third of Getz's come out with (too-wide-for-fixture) standard plates, and others, square plates.
I'm trying to decide which ones to get, depending on which look nicest.
I'm quite tempted to change to square. What do you guys think?
Agree for Standard, Disagree for Square on the post.
I assume it smells like Doritos
All washed up and pretty, still some of those damn oxidization spots around on the hood etc. '95 with 238k!
Nooooo it's reminding me of my newly sold baby :(
Let me introduce you to my car, my 90 240DL volvo...
Comes complete with 15psi of 63 trim goodness,MSD 6al + blaster setup, PA system that is louder then cops with microphone to yell at any motherfucker daring enough to cut you off.(-1 horn in process) Domo-kun hood complete with trailer-trash sign and addition random bullshit I felt like adding to it. I have beaten a corvette in this car, I just think its funny a car I bought for $200 invested around $1200 into the engine and its faster then a $20,000+ car And yes I live in a trailer.
and a blurry photo of my crx I picked up for only $240 bucks, needed the entire wiring done had a fully rebuilt d16y8 swapped into it already.
I've ALWAYS wanted to turn an old, beaten up volvo into a sleeper. You've fulfilled my dream!
Of course your truck is lower than mine, its highly unlikely that the tank would be damaged in most crashes.

You should swap to some hard charge piping, that rubber hose is inefficient for pushing boost through. I can definitely see you getting a little gain from changing to hard piping. Get a cheap pipe bender or borrow a friend's and use some regular old muffler tubing, it works great. Then after you've got it bent to the shape just coat it with some engine enamel of your choice and it'll look awesome.
Also fuck yes domo
Also plans for the CRX? Besides selling it to me of course
Also get a ricey loud BOV so people know you mean bid'ness.
Also I'd give you like 5 hearts for that post but I can't rate posts for some reason.
Dose your volvo
I got a CBV on it so no one knows until it spools up(ass of the car sags and front end lifts up then it takes off too). The crx right now is my project car, I need a IACV for it as obd1 is throwing a check engine light for it(obd0 car, obd1 wiring harness, obd2 engine) and I need a drivers seat. Right now I'm using the passenger SI seat for the drivers and eventually I'm gonna paint it back to its former glory of red with black trim. Thanks for the comments I was expecting to get haters hatin'
Both obd1 and obd0 IACVs are identical. I'm assuming the harness is the Si harness with a Rywire conversion harness at the ECU/Dizzy (or a similar conversion harness)?
Engines don't come in OBD either, lol. It's all in the sensors... OBD0/OBD1 stuff is interchangeable except distributor, OBD1/OBD2 distributor is interchangeable but that's it. If you're running the D16Y8 intake manifold that's probably the reason you're throwing a CEL, no spot for IACV. Grab you a D16Z6 or D15B7 manifold, they're easy to come by and better IMO, lots of people swear by the Y8 mani but too much hassle for the swap.
Anyways, there are a few people here that like Hondas and a few people who don't so don't expect everyone to like the CRX as much as me, most people are going to think it's a rice rocket :C
I'm the resident Civic/CRX expert though, I guess. If you need help with that rex just give me a shout. When I was old enough to turn wrenches I was turning them on Hondas and haven't put them down since. :)
Also, you going with Si seats back in the CRX? My '88 Si had seat covers on it when I got it, removed them to find mint Si seats so they've been uncovered ever since. My friend who is trading me out of it come the first of the month may be swapping them out for his leather NSX Recaro seats though.
Ah, I see. Basically, you're doing it the hard way. I don't know why, but to each his own.
I live in a trailer too. Don't think I'm super rich or anything, bro :P After I lost my house in April of last year, I've been struggling to get by.
On the intake, like I said it'd be easier to swap to a D15B7/D16Z6 intake manifold. I've honestly never liked the Y8 manifold. I had a D16Z6 manifold I would have gave you but I gave it away with the Civic I sold the other day. The only other throttlebody I think is like that.... Maybe the KA24/K20?
Also, there's a spot for an OBD1 IACV on the back of those manifolds, but it has to be drilled/tapped. And it might only be on automatic ones -- I can't remember.
And thanks, the CRX was boosted on an ebay turbo but now it's stock again, and in a couple weeks I'll be trading it to facepuncher Japfeiffer/The Pfeiffenator for his EG.
Snag his intake manifold bro, easiest way. Use the IAT/IACV that are already on that intake and the injectors you already have and slap it on. You'll have to get another intake gasket but it's worth it, far less hassle than the Y8 mani. Only other option really is to drill the intake or make some crazy adapter like you said.
The clutch cable end piece... Never seen a metal one. I'm sure a machine shop could fab one up but it'd be costly. Never had a problem out of the plastic ones myself.
