    It's so true, the m42 pickup has my 84's old 2.79 open diff and it is one of the slowest cars I've ever driven. I've been too lazy to throw the 4.10lsd in it but I know it'll make it worth the work. I'm hoping the taller tires will make it livable.

      the 3.25 makes second gear pretty sweet, Im confident in a race to 65 the m42 would keep up with a stock m20b25. takes you all the way to 72 or so.

      2.79 is just dumb.

                  Appears to be in decent shape besides the obvious cosmetic stuff.

                        They're both ridiculously slow, who cares? Didn't Simon dyno his eta a few years back and it was <100hp?

                          No kidding - take it on the track Toes. Seriously, do some track days and learn how to drive a slow car fast. Don't do that crap on the streets. It doesn't impress anyone these days..

                              limited slip + bald tires and you can't spin them? waste of time to make your car slower than an eta

                              m42 with a 4.10lsd should be able to spin the tires through 3rd in the rain.

                                I love how everybody is speculating what the car can and can not do despite not having driven this setup themselves. New tires going on tonight though, Continental True Contact 195/60/15 - have read loads of great things about their wet weather performance so Im excited to have a car that can confidently be at freeway speeds in the rain.

                                My engine is definitely not down on power, the compression tested great across all 4 cylinders and every sensor on the engine, except the o2 sensor, is new. Its mainly the lack of torque under 3500rpm that is the reason why they don't spin.

                                and slower than an eta? Im sorry but theres no way.......... since when does spinning tires = going fast? what is this hondatech???
