Well, since it is so slow tonight, I figured I would just get a little update on my two cars.

My 5th gen GT-

I finally got a NEW alternator for her, so the lights don't dim anymore.
I got new NGK iridium plugs, and iridium plug wires.
I replaced all of my vacuum lines.
New o2 sensor.
Nokya yellow headlight bulbs.
DIN gauge plate.(Im putting them where the ash tray is now.)

On the way for her-

4" in dash speakers.(Thanks DiG)
Upgraded alternator to battery power wire.(again, Thanks DiG)
Phantom AFR and Voltmeter gauges.
Oil catch can.
Rear window deflector.
Rear tweeter pods FINALLY.(thanks insan3)


For the 6th gen ST...

Cold air intake.
New PCV valve.
Got a door for her.
New shift boot.
New radio surround bezel.
I have the paint to do the engine bay and door jambs.
JDM side markers

I still need to find a transmission for her.
I still need to get the body work done, and get the paint for her.

:wiggle: :wiggle: :wiggle: :wiggle:

Nah, the hard plastic line going from the MAP sensor to the intake mani had a crack in it that wasnt visible unless you moved it a bit...

I am getting the pods biotch!!! lol

After replacing all those parts, she runs like a champ!!!!

haha thats awesome, simple cheap fix right? Mine runs like a champ too, kinda surprising, she hardly ever has any issues. Of course, what do you expect with it bein an ass kickin 5SFE?

Dude, the 5sfe is teh epic winzorz!!!!

But yeah, I dont regret putting the money into her, because I have it now, I owuld rather do it now, than wait until I dont have it and something happens.


Besides that, it had shitty plugs, ac delco wires, and a fouled o2.

So now it runs a ton better.

I must admit, I loved my 5sfe. It was very reliable for me. A bit underpowered for my tastes but the reliability quickly made up for that. My 3s has been nothing but problems. On the 5s when you replace something it actually fixes it versus creating 3 other problems which is what happens on my 3s.

^That sucks man...

I love the reliability of my car. It has given me a few problems here and there, but nothing too bad.
