History
Bought her as a winter car to save my turbocharged Protege back in August 2013. (Sold the Protege in October 2014 lol)

After I got her home and replaced a bunch of parts for safety (went overboard, control arms, calipers ect lol), I realized she was in GREAT shape for being a Canadian car, let alone from Ontario.

Since then I've put some effort and money into her.

Modifications

Drivetrain
-3.25" short ram intake w/ black spectre filter & 4" fresh air tube (SCREAMS at 5k lol)

-0.125" larger diameter front pipe

-2.25" mandrel exhaust with Magnaflow cat/resonator and Walker QuietFlow SS muffler (I had a 3 chamber flowmaster on, but was too loud)

-Dual VDO gauges oil pressure and vac/boost

I still have to source out OEM floor mats, otherwise the interior is complete.
Exterior

I'm not a "ICE" guy lol, clear sound and a bit of bass is all I want
