Oh I see. Hmm idk I'll have to wait and see what happens lol

Engine runs fine I just want more power out of it haha but I'm not in a rush for the swap. I picked up a pretty much complete swap of the JDM H22A for $300. Whatever parts was missing my friend has spare parts he can hook me up with I think. The engine was all in pieces so my friend is going to put it together and change out all the seals etc, basically a brand new engine. But before the swap I will drive around with the stock motor to get used to manual before I put a faster motor in it! My main priority right now is put on all my upgrades off my old coupe, get it registered, etc
