This thread makes me miss my 2000 which I also had to do a resurrection on. Nice work on this so far!

Thanks guys!
Not much has been happening with this car lately, because the wife and I have been preparing for our son to be born, and the car keeps blowing off boost hoses every time I drive it. I was warned about crappy clamps when I was researching the Ebay pipe kits, so I think higher-quality clamps will solve that issue.
In other news, the driver side power window is starting to act up finally, so it's about time to do the manual window conversion! That will be a fun update.
I also finally received my new urethane rear sway bar bushings from Neuspeed, so the sway bar is going to get installed sooner rather than later. I can't wait to get rid of some body roll and understeer!

Nicely done. I liked the face off drive, something my father would have done

@Owain, the pickup belongs to the wifey. It's AAZ swapped.
It's been sitting since summer. Gotta figure out a boost issue, but info is hard to find on this side of the border.

Just a quick update today:
I haven't done much on this car in the last couple months. My son was born at the end of January, so he's taken up most of my time. Besides that, I have an overwhelming list of cars I'm supposed to be working on besides my own.
I did manage to score some goodies for my car from a customer, though!

Default At Last! Progress.

After far too many months of down time, I finally got an afternoon free to work on this car. For starters, the PD150 manifold is now installed. Please excuse the dirty engine bay! We're in the middle of pollen and thunderstorm season here in Georgia, so all kinds of detritus has ended up on and in my car!


I also installed the manual window regulators. Modified door panels will follow ASAP.

And last, for now, I got my new dash center section installed with a gauge pod. For now, only the boost gauge works. The voltmeter will be replaced by an EGT gauge.

Next order of business will be to install my Neuspeed rear sway bar. I also have a change of rolling stock in the wings. The characterless black wheels and big stupid 215/55-17's are driving me crazy.

Not much of an update, but I got the new wheels and tires on. Now it's time to crank the coilovers down to a respectable height.





Unfortunately the car won't start right now. I'm thinking that I've let it sit too long with the new quantity adjuster seals and that it's lost prime. Haven't had a chance to work on it. Who knew that a child could keep one so busy?!

Cesar is finally on the road again!
The no-start was a combination of lost prime, as suspected, and a battery that wouldn't hold charge, which was thankfully under warranty with Interstate.
On the suspension side of things, I turned the FK's down all the way, but kept the helper springs and rear adjuster in. I like the stance. It looks low without being so low that it bottoms out in the jungle that is my back yard. The driver side front tire scrubs on the fender a bit with my fat ass in the car, but the occasional smell of burning plastic is a small price to pay for looking good.
Oh, and handling is on a whole other level. Very easy to power through corners now! I've never had a front wheel drive car that could instill this kind of confidence in the twisties without an LSD.


I've driven about 20 miles with this configuration. I am starting to experience a bearing or CV vibration when I turn right at any speed over 15mph, so that's next on the agenda. It's always something with this car!
I've also noticed that since installing the PD150 intake manifold, my boost gauge tops out at 22psi and the turbo is laggier than I remember. With the stock intake, boost was sitting pretty at 24psi sustained. I can't imagine that the PD150 intake would cause a 2psi pressure drop! Perhaps in all my tinkering, I created a vacuum leak somewhere?
Parting shot:
