    bummer, I think front plates are dumb as well, but I would need both to transfer it over...

    I guess I will stick to the custom plate I wanted anyways

      Yea it came with this aftermarket plate filler and I have not removed it. Police thankfully are semi reasonable and have not pulled me over for it. Knock on wood.

        That's what I'm doin too. Too much hassle with police when running old plates. They have no way to tell if the car is stolen. Only way is to pull ou over and check your registration.

          Same thing with no front plate... It looks "better" but after you get pulled over 10+ times you stop caring

              I've been wanting to do some fishing off the jetty in long beach.. Crabbing/perch/cod are year around, but crab is seasonal.. Currently getting into season right now.

                so i'm still undecided about my future engine swap, and to complicate things, another option rears it's ugly head....

                I learned that Ireland has a 3.0 and 3.1 kit for the M20.....and I have a bare b27 block sitting in storage......and I know where I can get a complete M20B25 with everything for the eta to i swap......fuck.

                What are your thoughts on the IE 3.1 kits? Pass or smash and why?

                    May as well go with an m30 if you want a high liter m20, all IE upgrades aside.. lol

                    hopefully my car sells tonight so i can put a down payment on my new swap. im getting anxious.

                      Yeah 180 gets you to a bone stock m30b32. Oh yeah, without the torque. I love torque.

                      Tonight I finished replacing my rear subframe bushings. Replaced with yellow power flex poly. Very happy, since it took about 5 hours, and my car handles better in the corners. Got my control arm bushings back from the machine shop( 750i meyle HD), which I still need to press. Happy my car is finally coming together.

                          Family Bought a bahamabeige 4 door in Vancouver yesterday, I almost want to make that trip again with my car. Pulled 420 miles out of a tank, all while down shifting around and doing pulls to 120kph haha. Got to watch pro3 race too. And a bunch of LSX swapped cars getting a run for their money by some crazy miata.

                            Anyone here bought rebuilt calipers locally? O'reily's has a decent price but I'm not sure of the quality.
