About “Onyx”

My dad came into some money recently and decided that I deserve something better than the old, rusty, leaky turbo Mustang I had been driving, so he got me this car for high school graduation. Believe me, I'm NOT going back to that Mustang!

About “The Cannon”

Car started out as a $1400 pile. I found that out when i was changing the fluids. Excellent learning experience though. Now nealy $3000 later it runs like crazy. The reason it cost so much was after the new trans and rebuild, the chain tensioner broke and parts of it went through all the oil galleys and the pump along with all the bearings. Found out that a few simple mods include disconnecting egr valve sensor. Check Engine light comes on though. Also on the maf sensor there is a honeycomb screen. remove it by carefully prying out the snap ring and then pushing it out from the back.
