Well, I bought it. Car runs beautifully Looks like new inside, very good outside. Already found a rear bumper and cover in the same color on CL for 40 bucks.

The kid put a lot into it, after paying 2700 bucks. full exhaust from header to tail pipe, struts/misc suspension links, battery, wires/plugs, new timing belt, new tires, fuel pump, fuel tank. over 2 grand in parts.

I suspect that the exhaust may make it breath a little better and maybe increase the mpg a tad. I have the OEM manifold and could go back to that. Maybe sell the header (DC Sports Header HHC5018) to some tuner kid. He paid 320 bucks for it. The OEM manifold looks to be a very well designed unit that flows just as nicely as the header.

Here is the list he sent me......

Invidia Exhaust-Aug 16 $462.00
Magnaflow 22642 Cat Aug 16 $184.00
DC Sports Header HHC5018 Aug 16 $320.00 I have the stock manifold also
AISIN Timing Belt Kit May 16 $114.78
NGK Pro wires May 16 $50.44
Mevotech Stabilizer Kinks and Moog ST8552 Struts Aug 16 $ 236.14
Beck Fuel pump/Dorman fuel tank- 12/16 $310.22
Firestone Firehawk Tires-195/65/r15- Aug 16 $ 355.92
Interstate Battery Sept 16 $110.00
K&N Aircleaner Aug 16 $45
