Well seeing as how the car is being fixed and the Nissan is going to be on hold, I might as well try and do something about the beat the hell Enkei's that ha... Show moreve been bothering me since.
Right now the car needed a new exhaust header (stock one was cracked to hell. Held together mostly by the downstream O2), New Lower Control Arms, Brakes, as well as a tie bar because we are going to have the ass end apart anyways so why not do that too?
Ah, but for the wheels. I love Enkeis but I am tired of 17"s and want to try out a new style. RPF1s are still in the air, however, debating if I want to spend 1k on wheels for this car right now.
But alas, oh no "fake" wheels. Boo, hiss.
Yes, I am debating on 16" Whistler wheels. I looked at the "legit" CCWs and Rotiform but I am not going to spend over 1,500 dollars on wheels for this almost 12 year old Civic.
So we shall see what fate awaits the wheels of this vehicle.
Well she's finally in the shop getting the major repairs done after we gave her a small tune up. So far she has new NGK Sparkplugs and wires, new distributor... Show more, new fuel pressure regulator, new PCV Valve, New Valve Cover and Intake gaskets, New Battery and terminals, new-ish hoses and vaccume lines. Took some photos before I drove her to the new temporary home at the mechanics where they will do a full diagnostic overview of what should/needs to be done.
I know I need a proper air filter. That's the least of my worries right now.
Hopefully by mid month/beginning of June I'll have her back and she'll be better than ever.
