congratulations. There were two miatas stopped in front of the house this afternoon and both made a u-turn on a two lane road, impressive turning radius.

Thanks.

Three more pics before we go. First is just for fun, last two show flow patterns.

I bought this last summer for a winter car and it's only seen two days of snow. Figures, huh? I'm going to keep driving it until I can get the Honda lowered with new tie rod ends.

I need to replace the left tie rod on the sc1, the boot is ripped and there is some play, I squirted some oil on it last week. Not a difficult job, 15 minutes and another 15 to align it by eye. Struts are getting weak too. The rack and pinion had always some stiction, probably got water in it at some time.

Yeah I'll have to pull it into the barn and get the stove going. But Civic discussion should be in the Civic thread

Probe hasn't been starting when it's below 25 degrees or so. I've been driving the parents Yukon for now, until Ren is roadworthy.

Sven7,

I looked over the page for Ren, and noticed in your planned mods area a scangauge. I just wanted to point out the scangauges require OBD2, which most 96 and newer cars have. 92 most likely is OBD1.

Hoping to see a boat tail on the civic and 50mpg+

Great comment for that thread... not this one. Just trying to keep things organized.

Ren's got an engine from an OBDII car so I'm not sure which it's running.

Kammback planned for Ren, but no boat tail. 50mpg will be doable without one.
