Nice test on those!!

Would 13 inch steelies be better than the 14 inch HX? I mean.. I love the HX look but I've got stock HF steel wheels with tires that are almost brand new it looks like.

Someone else will have to chime in if you're asking about weight.

But rolling resistance & aero should be your prime considerations before wheel weight. Well, after financial considerations, I mean.

I just checked my tired last night and they are 175/65/r13 if I remember correctly. They should do me right for right now..
I've gotta start saving up for paint.. Body work will start once the interior is finally in..

Here are some photos from last nights carpet excursion.







As far as I got... I am scared to cut it in the wrong place haha :O

I have some photos of my rear interior..









I Painted the rear speaker covers too.. They were faded, they look good though.






I LOVE IT

Now my front interior needs done... The center console deal is faded and the black is just coming off.. you know, around the shifter..

Still need to figure out what to about my cargo box deal.. Probly just gunna have the reupholsterer do me up something nice.. I've realized I dont have too much money anymore cause of my upcoming college... ha so progress may slow...

So I fixed the carpet last night... It looks pretty decent.. Started working on the EG console.

My seats look FANFRIKINTASTIC! I stopped by to see the progress on them today and they look great.. Only the bottom is done on both driver and passanger but dang am I in love.. I guess its expected at the price. Haha.

I think body work will begin this month.. It all depends on my fathers motivation. Ha

Ill try and get some more photos for sanity.

So everything runs great.. I just have one problem.

When trying to mess with my MPGuino, I loosened the #1 injector pin to attach it to the MPGuino.. Now it is loose.. I've tried to tighten it but now every once in a while I will get a check engine light and I have to wiggle that wire to get it to work.. I guess I just need to attempt to tighten it again.

Other than that, this thing runs like a champ. I am very satisfied with it.. Once I run it for a while and get my paint job done I will begin some ecomods..

Any suggestions on what full synthetic I should use?

What kill switch I should use?
