Build Thread:
Current Mods: Base timing is increased from 10 degrees BTDC to ~13 degrees BTDC, the max timing that will pass the inspection component of a california smog test.
WAI (only used when temperatures are low enough to allow).
Upper Grill block (only used when temperatures are low enough to allow).
Air dam.
Better tires (Michelin Defenders)
NGK spark plugs (seems that the 4A-FE loves ngk and denso spark plugs)
10W-30 Mobil1 Extended performance synthetic oil.
AMSOIL MTG 75W-90 GL4 synthetic oil in gearbox.
Phillips Xtreme Vision low beams (smaller and hotter filimant means that they put more light out the front and don't dim to the point of uselessness when in EOC).
LED interior light. Old draw was 1 amp, new draw is .1 amp (I used 2 LED sign backlight modules at .05 amp each, I could use 1 if my dome light's plastic wasn't opaque from age).

Planned Mods: Improved front belly pan
smooth hubcaps.
Engine cut off switch
