    trying to figure where to start on the tear down of my car. want to have the engine taken to my local shop for a rebuild since I don't have the means of doing so. Not looking forward to the price of that though.

    Thanks but interior is at the bottom of the list right now, would love to just have it running again. Like the wagon definitely not the average tuner.

    Went to clean out the garage and organize all my parts just laying around and found a crap load of spider webs all around my car. It has been sitting for far too long and I hate it. But I got my front bumper put back on so at least it looks better just sitting there Laughing .

    Got the timing belt I needed today just need to see if I can replace it. Never done a timing belt before. Anyone in the Phoenix AZ area feel free to come help me.

    Got a new exhaust ordered as well from Vivid Racing. Should be delivered next week I hope. Got the Buddy Club Pro Spec exhaust set up, all the youtube videos of it sound great so it should be awesome.

    Well tried to tackle the timing belt. I have no impact gun so attempted it the old fashioned way and the lower pulley broke my extension. So I've got parts of the car off and it is just sitting until I figure something out.

    my Buddy Club exhaust came in the mail today!! So excited. Too bad I can't enjoy until I get this stupid timing belt on. Still no luck with getting the lower pulley off. Need an impact gun. Also got my jdmtechops.com decals today.
