About “rice burner”

my best freind bought a civic and i bought a cavalier and the fued started from there lol. I blew the engine at 140.000 km and decided to rebuild it but with performance parts. the engine looks ugly but its whats on the inside that counts right???? .im doing pretty good with engine internals but after christmas i will install a han racecraft turbo with a full 3" straight pipe exhaust,performance intercooler, venom 400 r module and pace setter 4-1 header, lower it with eibachs 2" and get some light wieght rims....but i still burn the ricer civics,neons,jettas,integras i burned a few stangs the 6 cyc ones i assume lol but an audi s4 smoked me one night and thats why i decided to go turbo......

About “My First Car”

This is my first car. I was looking forever on craigslist for a cheap car. i didn't care what or if it ran. i found this under hyundai and saw it was located not even 3 miles away. I paid $250 for the car in August/September. it didnt run and it does need lots of work. I got it running the first time for $10.39. that was for spark plugs. As far as history goes. i know the guy was doing custom work and simple repair/rebuilds. the car is from north carolina. only rust is located in the spare tire compartment which leaks in from under the rear side window and a small bubble under tailgate. the cars biggest problem is the previous owner snapped one of the bolts that secures the fuel rail. i have rigged it to work but i want to repair it.
