Many of you know I bought #86 back last month in so-so running condition.

Buyer had a run of bad luck right after purchase starting with the alternator. As he was 200mi away and I traveled 40 outta 52 weeks in 2009 there was no way to assist him other than email.

Found and repaired the problems ( mainly intake air leaks on the JDM 2g intake pipe where the recirc tube connects ) she was back up and running happily. Did have to replace the alternator again ( loose 12v connector ) and swap the FP Race EM ( warped flange, put 2g model on ) otherwise she is purring along nicely.

My brother is currently using her to commute as his other car was about to die. He does need AWD in the winter but I am now thinking a 1g AWD DSM will fill the bill just as well. With that in mind I think I will start the search for one and even consider a swap if the right deal, and person LOL, comes up. BTW I removed the MBC so she's running on stock boost, hopefully my hard-on-cars sibling doesn't continue in his old ways.

Just some random blabberings, hope everyone out there is doing well! Peace.

Sounds good, and I've heard nothing but bad stuff about those FP manifolds over time.
