-Bought it in 09. -Bought a hardtop -Lowered it -Spun rod bearings almost immediately with around 120K. -Replaced the bearings and spun them again in less than 10K. -Swapped in a very clean 40K 1ZZ-FE with Moroso Pan and Billet Steel Oil Gears. -Had full exhaust (headers to muffler) -Installed PE Turbo Kit -Much fun was had -Decided it was too much fun -Uninstalled turbo kit -Back to stock exhaust Many other things were done but that's the nitty gritty. Was on the fence between selling it and toning it down to be a better daily. Plans to make the ultimate daily/weekend fun car: -Compromise between power/price/reliability -Rollbar -Leather or vinyl seats with 4 point harness that aren't as unGodly uncomfortable as the brides -Fix all the things I've ignored -Repaint front end (I hit a coyote, OK. it was sad day, mostly for the coyote)
