    anyways back to my car.. i bled the brakes properly today, they feel like shit. need a slightly bigger booster. engine now runs without error codes, but it's gone back to its subaru ways. what a cunt. i installed all my audio though and some more interior. i really wish i knew my motor runs so rough though

    I swapped in a stock booster & adjusted it all the way so the pedal will be closer to the floor. brakes work better now, they at least lock up, and stops in a straight line, which is good. they could probably do with a re-bleed though since they still feel a little soft.

    engine still running like shit for some unknown reason

    so i mixed up a lot of plugs & leads, swapped the coil and sanded the rotor, the car doesnt run like a suby now MEAN jsut a little misfire every now and then. I can live with that. gonna make up a blower > heater duct thing cause i lost mine & foggy windows suck

    i think it was 2 or 3, they ended up getting that yellowish tinge that you get with spray can clears, but that should make the wheels easier to clean (i hope)

    those grey se-i coupes look quite different to the grey on our cars. unless there was a grey se-i coupe that I don't know about?

    I like the se-i grey better, but i'm happy with what I got

    Looking good, i was gonna put white mags on my car but i already have trouble keeping those clean
    I picked up a grey CA SI 4years back for $200 had really bad paint fade and clear was all peeling and the tranny was buggered no suprise there haha, but do agree its the best colour for these cars and less chance of rust! and it had elec sunroof wish i was in car restoration mode back then and not sold it oh well.

    Re: A18A's 1988 Vigor 2.0MXL

    indeed. i have exclusive door panels & carpet installed (except for the rear, haven't done that yet) just missing some little bits and pieces for the interior but it's mostly complete lol.

    I took the car for a decent drive today, it really sucks at cruising smoothly & it feels underpowered compared to a normal b20a. I don't know why it's running the way it is
