    for now yeah lol. the only complaint i have about the drive train so far is the shift linkage i made could do with some tweaking. shitty apart about that is that would require cutting & welding

    i swapped the rear doors cause it was faster than swapping windows and stuff. i also installed the window visors







    and i got the rest of the interior in minus a hand brake cover and 2 door sill covers

    and a picture of how shitty my motor is looking

    Re: A18A's 1988 Vigor 2.0MXL

    lol @ tonight. cruising around, being the ricer i am I launch the car from the lights and as i go to slam it into 2nd the shift linkage broke (obviously because teh b20a makes too much power) so i pull over cause the car was now stuck in neutral.. i get out and reach under the car and push the linkage into whatever gear i can, then get back in and drive home, in 4th. I thought it was funny. tomorrow: redo linkage better

    Re: A18A's 1988 Vigor 2.0MXL

    i put the stock manifold back on and it's way more torquey down low. but it still doesn't feel as fast as it should be. it's still doing its stupid shudder at cruise speeds too, that's really annoying. other than those 2 issues it's good
