I'm Thinking about doing a Mini Me swap using a Y8 head... :D

car looks pretty good, definitely a good start. you should think about an LS or B16 swap, fairly simple, tho you would have to so a multi point conversion, you would with a mini me anyway. But for a decent price you could get a bit more power, a better geared trans and much more fun to drive. And while the motor is out you could clean the bay more and do a minor or major tuck. Just my opinions. Keep it up though.

Thanks.. i kinda wanna stick with the D engine and i can probley do the mini me swap for around $300 if i can find everything at a junkyard... i do plan on pulling the motor out though ether way and do a minor wire tuck (relocate battery and fuse box i hate were it is)

no real updates... just enjoying driving it (would enjoy that more if it was faster haha but cant start working on that until spring)

im thinking about picking up an 88-89 rear bumper and side moldings so i can do the red stripe in the trim and just putting some pin stripe down my current front bumper ( i like the 90-91 front bumper better) until i get a JDM Front bumper what do you guys think? ... well nothing is going to happen until spring atleast to cold to be working on the car right now. and garage is too small to do anything in... but here is some random videos so yall can here it run lol

Mount the fog lights behind the grill!! it looks cool when you cant see them when there off and then suddenly they appear when there on
