Hey everyone, so.. pretty excited to have my car running again after that little mess a few days ago where my car didn't want to start.
I decided to start making a build thread where I'll post pictures of things I've been doing to the car and whatnot.
A little history on the car:
I originally purchased it with 147k miles, little did I know the engine was going bad, around 150k miles, my engine died. Had a spun rod.
Long story short, she now has a 5A-FE with 30k miles!
First, let's start with the old engine:
Here is the new one right when it barely got finished being put in:
This is me and by bud a few days later lowering my mileage down. (I don't know why, but I couldn't stand it not reading correctly - knowing it doesn't have 150k miles anymore)
Then I installed two short-ram intakes, did it from parts I had laying around.
It was just a straight pipe, didn't really like it, was shaky, too, had no support.
I like it better, secured, too! Doesn't move at all.
Girlfriend convinced me to get these seat covers, not sure how I feel about them yet:
- Shift boot
- Radio, sub & amp installation
And here she is from the outside:
