Quite a number of guys have kept the A/C with intercooler piping, usually at the expense of the high beams.

I chose to remove it to give me extra room, as I didn't really want to be cramped but with a little creativity and careful planning, you'd fit both NP. 2.5" piping would be the max I'd think.

I miss a/c honestly.

Indeed, getting sort of pumped up with this now lol! Starting near the end of June I'll be working full time getting between $13-14 an hour which should rake in some nice cash flow.

The car is still getting painted, exterior will be this color:



And Im thinking all the black trim pieces that are on it right now might get sprayed piano black.

As for wheels, gonna rock the bottlecaps in light blue, almost like sky blue.. and the engine bay will be matching the wheels.



I also want to tuck my bay as much as possible, so a/c is gonna come out what else can be removed that is unnecessary ?
Kinda like this.

That's very cool dude! Congrats on the jobby job.

There's a M52 in Kenny Gatineau, and a M50 in Kenny Ottawa.

So, idk what's going on. I can't drive this car. As I'm driving it would suddenly lose power. Every time I press the gas it would do nothing, everything will be quiet an the car slows down. As soon as I let go it revs down as usual when slowing down. It would keep going no matter what gear I'm in until it finally stalls and that's bad cause my starter is gone so I can't even start my car!

Then another issue now is that if the starter works, it would sometimes crank but not start. I'd be cranking for what seems to be forever until it either doesn't start or spotters to life.

Any suggestions? I'm parking the car as soon as I redo the brake lines in the civic, which is becoming a priority now.

Well, a little update:

Got the civic on the road a while back, and then everything is out of the e30 ready for the engine to come out!
