I'd take a white '94 in a heartbeat.

I was gettin into the "Bronco culture" a bit scanning the forums trying to get a better handle on just how pretty a black "Eddie Bauer" edish (*lol. More 90s than a VH1 special) is. While not the deathmobile matte black like the mechanic's one I poasted...


...I was still like "oh yeah. This works."

Some of you may remember a semi-rant unfairly lambasting Porsches as "generic" downtown. Well my profoundly unpopular Tahoe decision as the fammobile a few years ago over a used X5 etc was similarly one man's (my) attempt at originality. (*I was and remain profoundly satisfied lol) This would fall into the same possibly stupid but definitely valid line of thinking. Store this thing all summer (for free at my buddy's auto transpo warehouse) and flip to an equally "unique" RWD 'vert from who knows what year? Oh yeah. Daddy' "car"? No no. Daddy's *cars*. Old ass 2dr 4x4 Nov-April. May-Oct some kinda old droptop: 442 or vette or even SL600 lol. Hell, go pure mullet and secure a Monte or Grand Nash from some other lawn in the country! :P Any setup really sounds more fun than the 4000th old A4 on the road.

The kid still hasn't answered my email. Ima call tomorrow. Solid 50miles north into cottage country. Good wknd roadtrip w my 3 year old lol.

That actually looks really nice.
Plans? Keep it pristine?

For the first winter, def. Maybe an new all black paintjob later if I get tired of the pinstriping+Eddie Bauer "delete" lol. The pic of the restore 1yr ago est muy encouraging re: reliability.


Ima call today- head out there and check it out this wknd. Deece interior condish and sick offroads ideally. Also check the "restoration" included tranny. I just hope that it's not another stale ad!

Wasn't questioning that at all. Drive in good health.

 

I used a defouler on my RSX when I went to a "race header."  It worked without any CEL issues.

 

An Eddie Bauer edition Bronco is straight out of the 90s when Ford put Eddie Bauer on a lot of their models.  The last memory of driving a Bronco was that the driver sits pretty far from the passenger.  It was just a large chasm of a center console.

My car doesn't have a cat in the header though, so I'd be running completely catless. Not sure it would work.

I'm also wondering if it would smell like shit...Probably. (Aka not worth it)

They have the "e-manage Utimate". = a piggyback that correctly alters the sensor input so your car still runs the stock ecu with better performance.

Fucking screw in the other rear tire. 21" PSS aren't cheap. Again, basically on the sidewall and it's essentially a bolt. Whoever handles CA roadway construction needs to be fired.

Ive had 3 slow leaks in the last 6 months, all nails all easy cheap repairs. All from 880.

I'm not trusting bolts in the sidewall of a car that puts down 1000 Nm and 600 kW to be plugged.

I wasnt suggesting it, more making an observation of ca roads. (Theyre sloppy)

Yeah that's what I figured you meant. It's gonna be another 2 hours here at the factory since they're shipping it from North Bay. Both times, it was a bolt-ish thingy that went in sideways right near the sidewall and at an angle and the tires in both cases were losing pressure pretty fast - in this case between Cupertino and San Jose, lost 10 psi, so really unpatchable. Not like erictheobscure's nick or the like.

Yeah, I'd mentioned this to you via pm. I think that they end up costing about the same amount as a stand alone MS3 after you factor in the cost of the wiring harness.

 

Not sure they support the miata anymore either:  http://www.greddy.com/


I'll look into it and price it out and see if people still like tuning those. If the price is the same for the megasquirt it really is a no brainer to go to a standalone for more flexibility. MAF delete as well. It's been out for long enough that the stock idle etc is well controlled.
