Talking CRXFi - $3000

That's right folks - I never even got around to using her much. Life Ch-ch-ch-changes.

Here's the car and her story.

She's got a rock solid, rust free 88 CRX HF Shell with a totally rebuilt 92 XFi motor, custom solid mounted. It's soundly mounted, but as a result can be a bit ...soundly. I'd try to incorporate rubber mounts if I did the project again.

Most questions can be answered in the thread about her voyage into being, but I'll answer any others completely honestly.

Briefly though:
-1 of a kind car
-Custom exhaust pipe from manifold down to stock center pipe
-Customized Metro shift linkage
-Custom motor mounts
-Successful splicing of CRX wiring harness
-Battery moved to rear
-Metro axles miraculously fit CRX HF splines perfectly, so stock left axle, using late 90s automatic metro axle for right side (slightly longer than 5spd metros)
-Lots of Si parts (front hood, bumper, fenders, center console, climate control, door skins, rear cargo box)

$3000. Comes with a working MPGuino.
