    Thanks bro! I'm looking forward to seeing what direction you go.


    Quick update: I still have this.


    HOWEVER, I haven't been driving her due to not having passed emissions. I changed the exhaust - headers back - to oem, changed the EGR which had a mean crack, changed the intake manifold gasket, and a slew of other things.

    She hasn't been driven much because I'm at a crossroads: I just took ownership of my Dad's 72 aircooled Beetle, and I'll be driving the car my brother got from my Dad, his G35, for a few months.

    I'm debating on selling something because more than likely I'll be in Germany doing an exchange program. if I keep the CB, I'll be buying as much edm stuff as possible and shipping it over, lol. I'll be coming back to this with details and pictures next week.

    Small Update

    School has started back, so I'm making small changes at the moment. I have my brother's car as a daily so she's parked while I work on it in the evening's when I can. A more full update soon.

    Wow. I thought I was going to fail my smog this year, but I passed...albeit with worse numbers than last year.

    Dat smog bruh! If you need a cat you'll have to weld it on too. I was gonna offer to use my new one but thought about your exhaust set-up.. Such a pain the the ass, man. I'm gonna go get sniffed again Tuesday, I'll post the results.

    Fast work on those repairs. I like the simple styling
    and you were lucky enough to find black leather DA headrests.

    When I seafoamed my car I didn't get the thick white smoke. I was very disappointed

    Whew. I'm just handling the basics now good sir, lol. Once I can get everything back under control there may be some H-talk. Mostly planning for now.

    Thanks man, I'm gonna run one more tank before I get her tested again. I forgot to mention I cleaned the IACV, EGR valve, new egr gasket, and pretty much everything connected to the plenum and throttle body.

    Hopefully it's overkill.

    Emissions trouble.

    I failed emissions. Hard. CO was well over 6, so I:

    - seafoamed
    - Injector cleaner
    - Fuel filter
    - Oil Change
    - Oil Filter

    ... spark plug wires, distributor rotor & cap, and O2 sensor to come.

    Here's video of the seafoaming:



    (Here's the link on youtube until I get the embedding thing figure out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rO4eQnAljU8)

    I hope it's not my CAT, but we'll see soon.

    I'd like to know more about your headlight setup, I'm looking at getting some hid's myself. Also those headlights are much nicer looking than your standard eBay ones.

    Keep up the good work and you will meet your goals. I love your rims, I would eventually like to get a pair myself.
    Thanks for your kind words man, truly. I'll get you info on the HID's as soon as possible. The Ballasts are different, which worries me a bit but they work fine otherwise. I also haven't found a good mounting point for them either. If I can get in contact with the previous owner I'll have the most accurate info.

    Who you gonna get to paint it?

    On a side note, I got my car running today! Just gotta thread a header stud for the downpipe flange to knock out that exhaust leak.

    Again let me know if I can help out.
    My girl's cousin has a shop in riverdale that does some pretty decent body work, he quoted me 125 a panel. Not too bad! (I think, lol). And good deal, I bet it's a bit smoother now. If I can help let me know!

    Yeah, it sucks but luckily it is easy to repair!
