    Check to see if the exhaust manifold nuts are tight. They will work themselves loose sometimes, especially towards cyl 6. I wouldn't worry too much about the manifold being warped just yet.

    I also run BPR5ES-II and I was under the impression that they are the hotter plug, not cooler - 6ES is usually preferred.

    Sounds like a time-trial rally, which isn't really common here in the states, but I've seen a few of them done on a local scale. Essentially you have a set destination and you have to follow a...

    Hmm. If you're planning to go to bare metal, you probably would rather use a stripper than sanding it off. It would take forever to sand.

    For a repaint, sand the paint down rough, wash and dry...

    Courtesy shipped out today - they have some back in stock if anyone is looking for a federal emissions EGR tube.

    You make up the price with the labor. It's all about how much your time is worth. I don't have much spare cash, so my choice is easy, lol. Under the right circumstances, I'd prefer a sprayed...

    I didn't follow your link - the work firewall doesn't like it. I'm assuming that it's a roller job, based on the fifty dollar price quote.

    Here is a link to the biggest thread ever that seemed to...

    And I should stop looking for parts and such, but I never listen to my own advice.

    The biggest issue is the body rot. Headlights and what not can be replaced. If its solid as a body shell, it's...

    As long as the clutch isn't slipping (and badly, at that) there shouldn't be any wear from using engine braking. My daily driving with manual transmission cars always yielded longer brake life than...

    It ended up being the same price from Courtesy, so I made the call to go with them. I've got that auction on watch, though, so I may still go that route.

    Thanks, fellas.

    Dang, Courtesy processed my order, but apparently they don't have any stock, because it shows as parts on order. Hopefully they can come across a few this week, or else I'll cancel the order and get...

    Yep, it's this little waste of design. Courtesy has them for 65, so they're cheaper than MSA (75) and much cheaper than ZCarSource (85) but 11 bucks to ship this thing. That's the problem with...

    Alright, order placed. Hopefully stuff shows up by the middle of the week so I can drop it off at the shop. The good news is that the rest of the brake setup looks good - no leaking, no rusted or...

    Sounds good, thanks Carl.

    It looks like the EGR tube is NLA, but Courtesy has some, but I'm not sure if the part is 14120-N4701 for Federal, or if it's N4702. I've run into conflicting reports....

    Source for EGR tube?

    The Z is at the local shop for exhaust and brake work, and the EGR tube on the manifold is rotted out. (EGR Tube A - Federal Emissions)

    Since Illinois requires emissions testing, I don't think I...

    The more I see of the interior, the more I love that car. I do have a soft spot for the tan interior, but to see it done custom aftermarket like that is just cool.

    Is it wrong of me to actually really love the paint it had on it? lol

    Congrats with the car, and it looks like you're doing everything right. She'll be pretty when she's back together.

    First things first - get it towed home. If you don't know how long it's been sitting, don't drive it - don't even start it.

    Once you have it home, drain the fuel tank and look for any rust or...
