Description: *RIP for now at 357K... Melted an exhaust valve and then found that the cylinders were worn .008". I would like to rebuild the D15B2 in the future if time allows.*

Rusty, stock and with over 300K. I'd love to find a decent CRX HF but this car will do for now.

I do carry a decent tool kit around and still have full interior, including the spare tire and jack.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Does the factory passenger mirror block-off plate count?

I don't do any P&G and very little EOC. Staying in gear above the DFCO seems to suck a ton of oil past the valve seals and/or piston rings so I have quit doing that as well and just coast down to stops with engine on in neutral. I'll shut the engine off if I hit a familiar stoplight or railroad crossing at a bad time.

Planned Mods: Not much. This car's too rusty for me to spend very much time or money on. I don't know of any instrumentation that will work with the DPFI setup; otherwise, I'd love to have some instant feedback. I may hook up a vacuum gauge at some point.
