    any idea how thick this is? including the fans. The clearance in the front of my engine bay is a little tight

    I made it. The closer you look the worse it looks. I also made the center glove box upholstry and shifter boot.

    I figured Id post the pictures of what Ive been doing recently. I started out completly redoing the exhaust and using a varex muffler as well as bracing the exhaust to the engine better.

    Then while I had the turbo off and had some spare stainless laying around I decided to make up some intercooler piping

    Does anybody want to buy this car? It runs drives has warped turbo manifold needs motor mounts I think and has a bit of rust. No airbags or abs but everything else works. Even If someone wants it I feel bad selling because of what Ive done to it both good and bad.

    I like the car it is just too much of a money pit right now I just can't seem to quit modifying.

    Or does anyone want trade a rust free 98 auto with 220k for a manual trans 5th 6th or 7th gen.

    I have a rust free 6th gen with a manual trans but I don't think I would trade it for the same car lol and then to head back to square 1 and do the swap again. Anyways lol I like your ride. Never liked that gold color but it's still really clean . Any plans with the turbo? Ie hp goals?

    drop an H in it and enjoy it. reason i left the turbo scene is because its one thing after another and turns into a money pit. hell even grab a f23 and h22 trans. and rock that setup. ditch the turbo stuff, sell it to pay for the swap. aint nothing gonna go wrong with honda OEM swap

    I would j-swap long before h-swap but thats me. I certainly made alot of mistakes but other than my iacv and manifold. Every thing is working. But I always want to make it better like once i get the turbo done then ill want coilovers, then body work, then paintjob, then lsd, then internals then full aero then....... I gues my problem is modding is addicting.
