ok so its an EG not an EP
I'll update this thread as I progress with my build. and just so everyone knows I have no intentions of swapping engines as of right now, I'm thoroughly enjoying my 40mpg. However I am entertaining the ideas that
Josh throws me so we will see what happens when the time is right.

maybe this'll give you an idea of my direction...minus the side skirts.
me and my very first car, this picture was taken probably in 2003..i'm sure i was still in highschool at the time.


First real pictures I've taken since getting her. Only thing I did before these pictures were taken was remove the OE antennae and put on a antennae block off plate over the hole.









also a good way to spot me...how many people do you know with GloomyBear as their mascot. hahaha


*update*
I also got in the OEM SiR front lip I ordered and was able to bolt it up after a quick trip to Jerihill and 3 bucks later. I also resprayed the stupid steelies. so they are actually black..instead of black silver and rust. *edit* I took better photos






*Update Aug 26, 2008*
Last week I had the Neuspeed's put in along with a set of Koni STR.T (orange struts of awesomeness). I'm not sure what the drop was it was less than an inch or around that I'm sure but the suspension is much much tighter. Major improvement on cornering. here some new pictures courtesy of Josh.

autozone got that stuff or is that more specialized? when i had the rear interior panels off i saw rust ont he back of the panel walls and what not. the guy who did the body work oil sprayed it though. But I'm worried that the rust will eat itself out from the inside. my only worry about this car.
