    Yea it made me realize that while 200 hp in a honda is a good amount, its nothing compared to like 400 in a v8 or whatever theyre using these days lol. Plus they dont weight that much like a charger or challenger does. Those weigh almost 5000 pounds. My car probably weighs like 2900 to 3000. The F20b is light as hell lol. But still light doesnt mean anything then the other car has a motor the size of your entire ride :lawl:

    Yup, a nice 350-350hp in a light weight car is always a lot of fun. It's how I spent my youth. :) Couldn't tell you how many V8 Vegas or V8 Monzas I owned back in the day. They were lighter than a V8 Nova that's for sure.

    Luckily I get to grow up with EFI and only have to change parts and use a computer to get power :lawl: Although Im stuck with an engine thats like a quarter of the size of the old V8 Magnum blocks and Chevy 454's lol

    Hmm.. I wonder what this could be?! Lol, I finally bought something non OEM. I'm going to install it tonight and take some before and after pictures. In the near future I'm going to convert my cluster, climate control, clock, etc. to amber.

    Thanks brotha! I went to Xtreme Edge Auto Details in Garden Grove. Super chill guys, 5 star rating on Yelp. Once I save up enough money I'm going back to them to have some paint correction done.

    Finally found some time to work on my car. I've been studying a lot lately since I have my first exam this Saturday (Saturday classes suck). OEM wheel locks, mud guards, and LED bulbs are on! :waytogo: They're so much brighter in person, pics don't do justice. Also does anyone know how to remove the bulb for the license plate on a sedan? I tried using a flathead for the outer cover but I don't want to break it.

    I hear ya on Saturday classes. I had 1 class that ran 8 weeks on Saturday mornings. It was an 8AM to 12PM class. Talk about needing lots of coffee. Worst part was it was about 75% lecture. :hung: Lots of classmates falling asleep from too much Friday night activities. ;) Never again will I do that.

    Thank you. I think I did alright on the exam lol. Any pics of your car?

    Yeah, I feel your pain, this class is 12-7PM. 3 hour lecture and 3 hour lab with a break in between. Feels like forever but at least we only meet once a week. Can’t wait til I’m done with school!
