Why don't you take yhe doors off and go all out Jeep style. Then you could run less psi in your tires, take the hood off.... take your shoes off when you get in the car.... oh man the possibilities!!

Edit: sorry, I am drunk. Was going to delete... but I still think it's a valid post :P
Just had to say though... I don't wanna make anyone else think I'm a prick. I'm not making fun of you Ryan, but I thougt it was funny because I was just at the bar talking to my friend about stupid civic drivers and their "mods". I couldn't resist!!

get rid of that heavy intercooler up front, get a smaller lighter one.... remove power steering. you could switch to a manual rack, ditch the pump, lines, cooler, and resevoir... while your at it, get a new steering wheel, you can get decent ones from lordco

Alright man, sounds awesome!
Things are getting full swing now at the restaurant, so I'm out there from 9:30am until about 10pm starting pretty soon here. I think I'm going to take wednesday and thursday off this week though, so then would be the best time for us to get a hold of each other.
I check my email every day though.
Thanks again for the heads up on the sprint, it'll be a PERFECT backroad to the resort machine!!

OK man, that's awesome. I am going to take wednesday and thursday off for sure. I'll find a way to come down there on one of those days, and we can figure something out.

You can call me on my cellphone if you want, 802 7382 or email me or something and leave me a way to get a hold of you.
Thanks again!!

the only line i can see that might bean idea is the main brake booster line if you replace that you will get mroe better pedal feel other then that all teh other will do fine there none by any heat what so ever ect the one that goes tot eh vsv vavle ont eh fire wall that control the the swing vavle othe then that you shoudl not really have to replace any of them wiht briading it more show then go if you ask me

as for the hard line off the turbo jst makes it easyer for in stall and not have to bend you line for perfect match like i had ot do

i might be gettign soft section put in there if mine going to be pain to get in again other then that it kinda point less ot get one cause you can see the lines any wya sthere to deep intot he einge


well off to work i go

Ok guys, more stupid questions :P I just want to know what you guys are running, i know some of this is personal preference but thats ok. What heat range sparkplugs should i get, im thinking about getting some NGK Plugs and NGK Wires. The manual seems to call for NGK BCPR6EPN8 plugs with a .031" gap. Should i stick with what it calls for or have you guys decided on something that works better?? And my only other questions was what weight of engine oil are you guys running??

get copper plugs. about $8 for all 6, just change them every oil change. wires dont really matter, most brands are equal.

Yeah i was thinking that 5W-30 was the way to go. I just wanted to see what you guys thought cause i wasnt sure. And i think im gonna run synthetic after the break in like you say, we'll see.

Oh and about the plugs, you say that you are running stock plugs, so does that mean you are running the NGK numbers that i posted?

Hey Bob... definely use copper plugs. I know we talked about not using the champions. But seems like everyone says copper plugs are the way to go. I use them and I love them. And I actually did notice a change when I switched from platinum to copper. They are supposed to be gapped at .032 (lots of research on this at SF, just search "copper spark plugs")
Oh yeah, when you go to synthetic oil probably use 15W50 or something. It's so much thinner than dino oil, plus you are driving it mainly in the summer weather.
This is both what I have put in my car, aftert spending a lot of hours reading and researching about both things. Seems to be what everyone agrees on though.

Oh yeah, and there's no need to have to change copper plugs every oil change. They are good for like 20,000 miles. Maybe change them 2 - 3 times a year, that is if you are driving it all the time. I change my plugs every 3rd oil change... and they have always been in good shape when I take them out. They are dirt cheap anyways though!!
Also, if you run lots of boost (or advanced timing?), I heard it's a good idea to go 1 heat range colder than stock.
