old blue: 1991 Geo Metro base CA
Displacement: 1 L
Fuel type: gasoline
Transmission: manual
Curb weight: 2442 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0
Frontal area: 0 sq.ft.
Instrumentation:
Description: CA car with EGR; probably 210 K when I got it; uses a quart of oil every 1500 miles, and shows some evidence of having been apart. Front hubs showed marks from a waffle headed hammer, and needed front bearings. Good enough car as it is to put me watching for a cleaner one, thus the 49state 4 door.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: socket for MPGuino, 13 inch vert wheels with 175-80 fronts, for an approximate 20% lower effective final drive.

Planned Mods: Computer breakout box to allow first monitoring, and later control from Megasquirt box
Multistrike ignition box

None of which is likely to do much good until the rings and valves are done. EGR at least sort of works.
After the difficulty I had stabbing transmissions before, I figure to remove the whole package with my hoist, clean it up, and work on a comfortable bench.
