My 95 DX coupe was crashed and totalled, so I bought this 94 EX for $400 with a knocking z6. That lasted a day, lol. So I swapped my b16 from the crash coupe to the new one, and these are the results...

Crashed EJ2..

I don't like the new valve cover, too flashy for me. With the yellow battery and red air filter, it's too busy. Body looks mint after you fixed it up. Can't wait to see it slammed:thumbs up

Don't mod the exterior. It has potential to be a decent sleeper.

Another update..


Got some minty 15" Konig Britelites with new 205/50 Toyo Proxes for cheap, so I picked them up. Some may not like it, but I do. :suprise: Does NEED a drop, because its back on suspension..sold the Tanabe coilovers. But winter is coming sooo, prolly staying like this for a while. Also got a OEM style CF hood.
