Build Thread:
Current Mods: 12-03-08: Put 2 Michelin Harmony stock-sized tires on the front, inflated to 44 PSI. I still have the cheap costco tires (38psi) from the previous owner on the rear.

1-19-09: Installed 2 14" alloy wheels from a '92 Protege on the rear of my Protege to reduce rotational inertia.

1-19-09 Added an full-sized aluminum spare to the trunk. This is only slightly heavier than the compact spare.

1-20-09 Switched to 5W-20 synthetic oil instead of 10W-30.

3-5-09 Added coroplast upper grill block.

3-10-09 Rear seat and trunk carpeting delete.

3-30-09 New spark plugs

4-3-09 All 4 tires at 50 PSI. Replaced cardboard lower grill block with a coroplast one.

Planned Mods: Possible 5th gear swap.

Smooth wheel covers.

Front undertray.
