Since I had the car up in the air looking for a gas leak, I decided to take the preload away from the strut springs.  I'm hoping this takes away the yoga ball suspension this car has.  Also, my car had a rake to the front when I installed the struts.  I set the rears now to 2.5 inches.

What I don't like about the D2 tools that are supplied is that it is really difficult to loosen the locking nuts.  I chipped the locking nut many times.  I wonder if there is a better tool available.

They do, but they aren't "exactly" stock.  The spray pattern is different.  Some people have reported idle and/or driveability issues after installing them.  Others have been perfectly fine.

I was worried this fuel injection supply crisis would happen.  I was planning on a manga intake, just not so soon.

I took care of the reservoir hose to master cylinder hose leaks that developed this year.  I ordered the new hose, but you only need to order one.

Here you can see how brittle and swollen this hose is.

I wish I would have changed these hoses earlier. I just didn't notice the damage the leaks did to the strut tower.

if you figure out a way to get a magna intake for a decent price, let me know.

as for right now due to injector supply issues, i mayself am looking at maybe swapping to MPI during my cars revival/restoration.

he still has magna intakes to modify?

oh NVM Chad. same guy that makes the tubular exhuast manifolds, LOL.

i would but i've been looking at design and was thinking about using a long runner for low end torque with power up top being provided by the boost. this design would require a U shaped runner.

i was also considering some slight cylinder head modification as well for the injector bung exit so the injector sprays onto the back of the valve like most modern cars. i'd use one of my old head from my blown engine ( spun rod bearings) for this to verify there is no coolant passages i might cut into.
