I have had no issues with the half radiator honestly, my temps stick around 180-190ish consistently. Its a Triple core Civic radiator if you are wondering.

The Maft/GM Maf is ok...I am kinda indifferent about it. Its a bit of a pain to try to tune it right, which after some time I got it tuned kinda decent to where the car runs pretty good right now. I am going to switch to V3 very soon and pretty sure I can dial in this car much better to its full potential.

Well after 7-8 years I finally got to drive the car more than a mile from my house. The past few times I attempted something broke from a frozen caliper, ECU circuit board issue and recently wheel bearings going bye bye....the car drove with no issues.
Some say thats way too long to have the car up....that is fine, I don't expect everyone to understand what I went through but still kept the car. Only a few know what I had to go through and could appreciate my journey..but life took priority, and things like hobbies had to take a backseat for awhile.

It would sure great driving this car again though!

My little sister is a aspiring photographer and decided to do a photoshoot of #1948 this weekend. Once she edits some shots and puts together a video presentation I will post it. In the mean time...here is a raw shot she took. I can stop staring at this pic, 1st ever rolling shot of the car. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

My sister and brother in law came to town on Columbus Day weekend for my dads bday so they spent a few days here in FL. My lil sister who is a aspiring photographer wanted to do a photoshoot of Stitch to try some new techniques, and camera accessories and add to her portfolio. I love how the pics came out, but like me or anyone who is trying to master their craft ..she isn't totally happy with them, but I really love how they came out. Here are a few shots but I will post several more on my Members showcase page.

Do we have the details on the wheel fitment? Looks quite nice without being ridiculous.

The current tires you see on the pics are the ones that came with the wheels which are 205/50/17 Dunlops.

I will be installing my 245/40/17 Dunlop Direzzas from the Evo 8 enkies I had on before in a few weeks. I am pretty sure I will have to raise the car because right now with the current tires its fitting just barely and plus I want more of a meatier tire.
