    Suggestion: hard to find parts list

    Sticky post with hard to find parts for 3g. I'm talking new stuff.

    I know a few.

    1. Brake proportion valve

    2. Door rubber moldings

    3. Decent rebuilt distributors?

    4. Stock style power steering reservoir/filter

    how detailed do we want to get ?

    Body wise, iirc one of the fenders is very hard to find, upper window molding clips, and a majority of the other window clips for that matter.

    Hey if its hard to get its hard to get.

    I figure start with impossible to find "stock" parts not JDM stuff no one heard of and go from there.

    I did pay 281$ for a speed sensor I broke off my trans. I found that a little high so maybe that could be a 2nd list.

    speed sensor is discontinued now as i have tried to find a new one(for a while). also the FITV and the coolant fitting for the FI A20 motors are a difficult one to find even in jy due to them being rusted.

    sunroof seals is a hard one. distributor i have been runnning a decent one from autozone or oreillys. 2-3 years now its decent with a lifetime warranty. i think the electrical stuff is a hit or miss honestly.

    People seem to have good enough luck with the new distributors from Richporter on eBay.

    I swapped to a K+ N filter cone 18 years ago. Still running it. The cleaning kit finally is used up. I remember the stock ones being like 11.98 i said f that.

    Did you notice a drop in MPG with that K&N?

    Re: Suggestion: hard to find parts list

    Im gonna say no if in fact it was maybe a tick higher. I was running 28-30 mpg with 30% e-85 for years. Just seasons and time of day (headlights up) changed it slightly. I remember first getting the car and it was always 26,27,28. I think the K and N was the first "mod" I ever did to it.

    Another plus is it got rid of all the intake plumbing in the engine bay and you can take the oil filter off from above.
