I must admit Matt...your 4th gen make me regret trading in my 95 se....but then again it would have taken way too much work to make it good again...
1) fix rust
2) swap to a h22
3) swap to a manual tranny
4) get new enterior (I hated the black/tan combo, especially the leather)
5) would have had to find a correct matching SE rim (I had 3 passenger side rims and 1 driver's side)
6) buy a set of stock taillights(yeah back in the day I had altezzas)
7) get a new exhaust(it was being held up by picture frame wire)
It was a money pit :rant:
You good with what you have. i like your 5th gen. I guess i might had traded too or else the 95se would have been a full custom. I mean like take the interior pieces and use them as models for fiberglassing and such. hella work, but a piece of art when finished, yes
hey Qveon: how difficult is the JSRC install on the 4th gen? i'm almost certain that there is no write up on what exact problems arise.
you are teh 2nd 4th gen that i know of that has a JSRC... this is something i have been considering for the longest time but am not sure if i will be able to handle all the customization that goes into putting the SC on the 4th gen.
i'm sure any and all advice will be appreciated by all.
If memory serves me correct I think all you have to do is bend/cut part of the engine bay(around the driver's side strut tower) correct me if I am wrong Q
here is a good write-up if that is the case
1)test fit s/c
3)lather, rinse and repeat
I am not sure about the electical and if there was any customizing needed for that...
Well take in to fact my car is different from the rest of yours (not bragging, but warning) But some of the fitment problems are like typesh said. Here some notes ill take a pic of what i mean if you want one just ask.
- The driver's side shock tower has to be dented in slightly
- MUST HAVE motor mount inserts at least
- Instead of moving the fuel hook up i just bent it down
Thats about all i have though of right now. I didn't use 1/4 of the parts that came with the kit like the P/S relocator. Dont bother it doesnt fit. So no rerouting through the valve cover. Etc I'll try and remember it all. My kit didn;t come with the IACV block so i had to make my own
I guess I never made a thread about the 4th gen I have been building since 2007.
I have dropped lots of money into this project and if you would like specs ect just ask.
Basically it's a h23a1 block and a h22a head. Garret GT35/86R turbo on a lovefab EQ length manidfold. Runs E85.
Ok So here it goes.. I started a project found a smashed 98 lude.. Front smashed but motor tranny good (5speed)

My current plan is as so:
F20b manual full swap ($1200) f20b because Iron sleeves
Bored out to 86 so I can use the bisimoto forged pistons
H22 crank for the increase in stroke and availibity and so I can use
H22 eagle rods because they are not $800 and out of stock
11:1 bisimoto forged pistons...
