well sob...just made a better intake (will be a cold air intake going in to the fender once i get another coupler and some hose clamps) blocked off the egr, and unpluged the knock sensor...was letting her idle and noticed she was reving up smoother.went under the hood to listen and saw coolant pissing out of the water pump...

new water pump in. the above listed stuff definitely made a difference! not racecar kind but she goes off the line a little better and ALOT better on the hills ...also my love for this car went up 9000times when it took like 10 mins to change the water pump...so much easier then the damn sideways engine imports

thanks! i do agree fully. i hated the spoked wire wheel caps . and thought it looked hella ghetto with bare steelies...a little bit of gloss black paint and the chrome beauty rings really set it off



well im excited . come monday i will be ordering a new transmission modulator , filter/gasket and fulid. and in about a week ill be going to the junkyard and hopefully coming back with a ranger header
