    I've got a cam gear for sale, they are a discontinued item now. As far as cam option goes, search around in this forum, make sure to use the search function built into the forum tool menu.

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    I am just starting my search for a 3rd gen daily driver

    Is there a compilation of all differences in trim levels?

    Which ones had options for power windows/locks etc?

    and neither the coupes or hatchbacks have power door locks, the sedans have a notch in the door beam that allows the lock motor to fit, the others don't. it will bolt to the door latch, but it won't fit. you can convert pretty easy with aftermarket actuators.

    DX - manual everything.
    LX/LX-i/SE-i - power everything (except for door locks for coupes and hatches).

    Hatch: DX, LX-i
    Coupe: DX, LX-i, SE-i
    Sedan: DX, LX, LX-i, SE-i

    Hatches and coupes never came in LX's, and hatches never came in SE-i's.

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    The "i" in LX-i and SE-i indicate a fuel-injected engine. In general, the carbs seem to get a little better MPG than injected models, but the injected models are more reliable. You want an injected model definitely.

    Uh, yeah. I need some kind of proof to this, because in general, fuel-injected cars get WAY better gas mileage...

    Edit: Okay, I need proof of my own point.

    there were two different gauge makers, and I believe any of the cars could have gotten eithier gauge, I guess it depended on the plant it was built at.

    lowering it would help handling as the front end would become like a snow plow lol... seriously our 97 coupe handled fantastic in snow due to being pretty low and having good tires on it... used to drive in front of the plows all the time lol...

    Carb cars are geared for fuel economy. they are also lighter. and run a bit more lean.

    Yeah, I don't have anything empirical. I was just going from anecdotal reports from our carb guys here. It seems like those carb cars top out somewhere around 40 MPG, whereas the best the FI cars can do is somewhere around 35 MPG. I think they geared the carb cars a little higher, so that might explain it. The only empirical evidence I was able to find were the ratings from www.fueleconomy.gov:

    http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/compx...Field=Findacar

    It's not a big difference, but the carbs are a little higher.

    it's easy, the FI cars produce more horsepower, therefor use more gas,

    ^ Not necessarily. I've gotten close to 50mpg highway in my car, but mixed driving (city/highway and easy/hard) I get 35mpg.
