Hello from Mobile, AL!

Hello all,

I've got a 1993 Geo Prizm 1.6L with a few mods:

-removed 3spd in favor of the 4spd
-added front and rear sway bars from Corolla for safety reasons
-ebay header due to OEM unit failure(cracking is common)
-soon will be lowered using TEIN S-tech springs
-2mm wheel spacers all around...just cause
-gauge cluster with tach

Hello and welcome! A great way to get started is to add your vehicle to the garage, and start tracking your fuel with us. I'm sure others will be chiming in shortly.

A future addition that I plan is to make a belly pan. I will, however, browse the local salvage yards in order to try and source some OEM type under body panelling that I can make fit to aid in aero mods.

Today I fixed(replaced) the speedo due to a broken trip meter. Oh, and upon inspection I noticed the tires were low @30psi. Inflated them to 38psi.

Lastly, I plan on using 0W-20 weight oil. I've used before without any adverse effects on engine performance or noise.
