The window wouldn't go up or down using the driver master switch or the passenger window switch, but the motor and switches checked out fine.

I wasn't about to pull the dash apart to find the break, so I ended up just making a new ground circuit at the passenger door. Now the window works fine from the passenger side, but won't work from the driver side until I repair the break.




Mine has the same issue!! I've spent a few hours on diagnosing it. I finally just jumped the ground at the passenger switch to have it working from there. I hate having something on my car not working correctly though. I figured it is most likely a break in the harness at the point of most wear (at the hinge of drivers door). Ive had the door panel off with a volt meter and a probe and still could find the issue. I have 4 master switches too so I know thats not the issue!!

Definitely post an update if you find the issue. I'm sure we aren't the only 3 this has happened to.

I'll start by saying I'm really happy with the car!

I got the throttle body gasket swapped out today, and it seemed to clear up my idle issues. The car idles great now. I still hear a hissing inside the manifold, but I'm thinking the Magnus manifold resonates a bit more than the stocker when air bybasses the BISS? IDK, maybe you guys running the Magnus can chime in. I put the front fender liners back in, and finished up all the other little stuff. I retorqued my lugs, and checked all the fluids. No leaks AT ALL. Honestly, after having so many problems with 1813, I almost expected some shit to go wrong. But, so far, so good . All I really need to do now is throw the hood back on after I decided what I'm going to do to the underside.

I got a little bit of time to go drive the car around a bit. I still really fucking hate how the diff feels. I can't believe I was looking forward to having a welded diff. Even on moderate inclines, I don't even have to brake at a stop. I just crank the wheel a few degrees and the car is planted. I can hear the front axles bitching the whole time.

While I was out derpin around in the car, I noticed how people kinda freak out when they see a car without a hood. I just drove around the local roads a few miles from my house, and was getting all kinds of crazy looks from people. Some guy in a riced civic stopped me while I was taking a few pics of the car under a bridge. He asked me if I always drove around without a hood because my motor "looked so expensive" . He seemed nice enough though, so I bullshitted with him for a while, answering tons of questions he had.

Anyways, the car ran great, and I was ecstatic! I'm looking forward to putting some more miles on her. Per the usual, the Marine Corps fucked me over last minute with a 24 hour duty post tomorrow, so I'm not sure if I'll get to detail the car this weekend.

In the mean time, here's a few crappy cell phone pics of the dirty topless girl before I garaged her up for the night

Looks damn good. I like the fogs now that you have more angles. Haven't seen another setup like it.

Been driving my car around too, feels nice. Here's to not staying JSB forever

With the Magnus SMIM you'll definitely notice some more noise when standing there looking at the engine while it's running.

Car looks great.

You started a new trend. I bet you're going to start seeing Honda's with no hoods now.

Now instead of stripping paint to rust body panels you just remove them!

I think this is the old car of the guy that sold me my galant, was it in the east coast by Florida or something like that?

Nope, this car was never in Florida. I bought it in SoCal from Anthony (oldman tau), a member here on the board.

yeah it's the same car, got confused on where it went to exactly. You wired him the money for the car and he shipped it out.You paid a pretty penny for it from what he told me. Seen one pic he showed me, but on your pics this car looks better than i imagined.

I don't think I paid a pretty penny. I paid Anthony $8,200 for the car. Count up the change for the JIC coilovers, BBS wheels and all the JDM bullshit that's on it and I think I got a pretty good deal. There's no doubt IMO that he could have sold the car for more, even with a bit of rust. G may not buy it, but there are plenty of other people who would be willing I'm sure. Hell, I paid $1,100 for 1813 when I bought it and sold it for $5,300. These cars are beginning to be worth something in decent condition. I'm curious as to what 1837 is worth in its current condition?

I know I was crying about how exhaust wrap looks like ass and whatever. I suppose I should reconsider my position, as I think wrapping the J-pipe was actually a big improvement aesthetically. I can't believe how good it turned out. I'm actually liking with the way it looks now. I think I like it mostly because I really prefer the look of the specific wrap I got.

So started with this:


Bought some of this:


Wrapped it up like this:


And it looks like this:




I couldn't get a good read on how much it helped. The pipe was still really fuckin hot. You can touch it quickly with your finger, but definitely wouldn't be able to hold it there. It does seem like it is protecting the coupler a bit better though, which is all I wanted to accomplish by wrapping the pipe in the first place. I will say that DEI wrap is some good stuff. It's pretty high quality, and the fibers are super strong. The "Titanium" stuff is also good up to a higher temp than the typical DEI wrap. In addition, you don't have to coat the Titanium stuff with the silicone spray like you do the regular DEI wrap. The titanium wrap comes impregnated with some type of resin that sets when the wrap gets hot. Pretty legit.

I took the car out for a few hours today. SUPER happy with how it is performing. I tweaked the idle a bit, and it's running flawlessly. Still can't get used to the welded diff. I'm seriously considering dropping the trans after the Shootout to swap it out. Other than that, I couldn't be happier with how the car is doing. It feels quick, and I can't wait to get the motor broken in to see what it's capable of.

I took some pictures with a REAL camera today. They turned out way better than the junk ass cell phone pics I've been putting up. The car is still pretty dirty, and will look even better when I get a chance to detail it. I hope nobody is butt hurt because of all the photo dumps in here lately. I'm starting to feel like Mike . I like to upload everything though. I could pick my fav 3 pics or some shit, but I don't know what angles look good to others, so I just post it all. I hope you guys don't mind the photo bombs. If I'm getting to rowdy with all the pics, just tell me to pump the brakes before you guys start making memes of me and shit

PS, I'm in the process of preping the hood for paint, that's why it's not on yet...Well, and because moar JDM fuck points with no hood!

-wrap looks great, did you get it at the parts store? I want to wrap my pipe right there too, it gets really hot. You can wrap my hot pipe any time Brett.

-I love those cali plates. and I had that same personal wheel in my last s13. loved it. and I never noticed your red needles, kinda interesting. you use the red or green tint in your cluster at night?

Yeah, funny story about the wrap. I actually got it a Pep Boys. I was looking everywhere online for somewhere to order it without paying out the ass. I stumbled across it on Pep Boys' website where it showed in stock at my local store. I called them up and sure as shit, they had it. It was like $22 bucks for 15 feet. As far as wrapping your hot pipe, IDK man. If Craig found out I was taking potential dudes from him on the .Org, he might get upset. *Waits to see how long it takes for Craig to enter*

I use the green cluster at night. I have a pic of it posted up a million pictures or so back...

as far as posting tons of pictures, who cares. it's your car in your own thread. No one has to click on your thread if they don't want to. look at mine, I'm on page 17 and all i do is post pictures and whine and gripe and ask stupid questions. my car is still pretty much stock. it's mostly just a thread for me to talk to myself.

Nobody gives a shit if you post eleventeen million pics in your own thread. We gave Mike shit because he kept posting pics of his car in other people's intro threads and such, with the quote "this is my car, in case you haven't seen it yet". Hence the memes.
