DHD: I HATED the black plastic shit (gotta repaint them all again haha). I MIGHT try and crhome dip my extra air dam lol (there's a company around that can chrome ANYTHING...it'd be fuckin' pimp). And I like the all-red tails....but clears are so freaking rare...I'm pretty much the only S-truck around with them these days.

proshoraca: hahaha thankfully the truck is so light that if I get a flat I can just lift it enough to put a jack underneath (not kidding). It's too low to go on a jack, and I have to lift it by hand anyways....so I'm not too worried (famous last words lol).

^^^^ Tamas the truck looks nicer than ever! I love how slammed it is, it makes me all hot and sweaty and weak on my feet!

My mod of the day:

Ford 19lb Bosch Design III Injectors!
I love ebay! Other wise I would of had to pay upwards of 220US$ for these instead I ended up paying 44US$

Next mod of the day:
Trip to summer land to pick up a FPR out of a late 80's Porsche 944S

Yesterday my car completely died on me in traffic. A little furious i had a suspicion as to what it was. The coil in the distributor died on my AGAIN. Being the second time in one year I ordered and installed an MSD SCI Blaster SS ignition kit. After it having failed the second time, there is no way i'd want to be in Vancouver and have this happen. No more internal coil bullshit. Hopefully the MSD unit proves to be reliable.

Today I also installed a non burnt out H4H bulb into my one piece headlights. Thanks Tom !

it's really retarded on how often it happen on these internal coil cars. It died on me on the way to work this morning AFTER the MSD unit.. But i think it was due to improper grounding on my part

On my more friendly daily driver, it's on the THRID dizzy now. On my car, it's on it's 5th I think. I went through 3 dizzies in a matter of months. all ranging form Coil to ignitor to completely seizing the bearings. This was with full ignition setups, or jsut external coil. or bone stock. I generalyl try to drive aronud with a worknig Dizzy and a 12mm wrench in the back seat, no joke.

it seems like they gave a re-design to the dizzy's on G3's because i don't hear it being as much of a common problem for them.. hopefully!

in 3 years of owning my teg i never had one go, but nearly everyone else i know has. at least once. jons teg it went twice with me in the car. once was the coil, once was the rotor.

Died on me on the way home from work again tonight.. I played side of the road mechanic and took off the distributor to install a new ignitor. After that it ran fine once again.
