Oh and here is the chubby hole I was talking about making, using the tape deck delete panel. It is perfect iPod size lol. I hated how my 6 had nowhere to sit my iPod

Thank you! I am loving the new look myself. The stock set up is damn boring haha. I figured, while I'm waiting on headers, I could work on the little touches.

Okay, anything else I should consider replacing? I ordered a new cabin air filter too, after seeing it...there was no way I was putting that back in my car lol. My belts look good, new crankshaft sensor, new camshaft sensors, all new oxygen sensors...anything else recommended?

How new are the ignition coils?? Any chance they took the CATs life to be begin with?

I'd replace them! PS - with a starter you could do a quick compression test but it wouldn't yield much as its cold and has likely been a while it was fired off. It might give you basic reference for later.


PS - color scheme and cleanliness Look Great! Good Job!

Coil packs are only a few months old. I replaced them when the car started to misfire. I changed them and spark plugs...also cold air intake lol. And thank you! It's been difficult keeping myself busy, while I wait on headers. BTW I just sent Martin the email, I am pumped!

Keep this in mind; although rare - even new parts like COPs can be bad on occasion. What headers you buy and does it need to pass emissions testing?

I wish I would have a larger engine... 1.8 just ain't enough. (not even in Europe )
