    In all seriousness though, I'm thinking in much the same direction. The domestic aftermarket has so much awesome stuff that interchanges and works with everything else so well. And in the import scene stuff is so hard to find, doesn't tend to play well with other stuff and is a giant headache to set up. That leaves aside the increasing scarcity of replacement parts for the 3g. If I can retrofit the domestic aftermarket stuff onto my 3g, then all those problems disappear.
    Well some import stuff can fit onto other imports. But the reason you canít really use any domestic aftermarket on our imports is cause of metric/inch. And most of our stuff is 4 cyl, and theirís are v8ís. Solution? Designing adapter plates.

    Old girl kept door to door with a 7th gen coupe on the way home from work. I know it's bad but he challenged me lol
    Ran over a grocery bag the other day and it stuck to my exhaust pipe, now it smells like burnt plastic >.<

    Had a funky ass noise pop up last night that sounded like a rod knocking. freaked me out but turned out to be the EGR pipe had come loose and was rattling around. Almost had a heart attack thinking it was getting ready to blow up lol
    Couldn't find a plug to fit the pipe mounting bung so had taken the old pipe and cut it, crimped and welded it shut. It started to back out and was making noise hitting the motor mount bracket.

    I plugged the manifold with a bolt but I cant remember the thread. Never had a problem running wise after.

    Yea, I was wanting to do that or a screw in plug but couldn't find anything around here. Even went to a nut and bolt store with the header and they didn't have anything to fit. So did the old quick and dirty. Welds are holding up but apparently it wants to unscrew on me. May tighten it back up and throw a tack weld or two on it.

    OldBlue is right! The EGR on the manifold can be plugged using a trans fill plug. They thread right in. But hey, if it works, don't fix it!
