Default Newb from Albuquerque

Hey names jovany, came over from cr.net to check this site out. Overall I like it very helpful DIY section.

Anywho u drive a 91' 1.6l white with black interior. Got it in sept of 2010 completely stock in need of some tlc. Im a broke college student so progress is slow but here is what's done.

Spent most of the first year repairing:
Fm timing kit, & painted the VC, NGK plugs and wires.
New MS motor mounts
New powertrain because I found crack in the original.
New upper, lower and leather shifter boots.
New bushings all around the chassis.
Rebuilt brake calipers all around.
New pads & rotors
New master and slave clutch cylinders

Mods so far:
Touge run airdam
Kosei k1's 15x7 +38
Toyo Proxes R888's
Raceland header
Custom test pipe
Cheap eBay exhaust
Hard dog m1 DD roll bar
Megan springs (saving up for coilovers)
Tow hooks
Momo classic steering wheel & hub.

So this is how the car currently sits:






Plans include:
Some decent coilovers
1.8 swap & a supercharger
Torsen diff

Shooting to make a reliable driver with around 150+ horsepower.

So far I have taken the car to a few track events here at sandia speedway and a few autocross events around Abq. I love this car and it is a blast to drive!

Nice car and nice wheels! (I have the same) I'll be up in Albq a few times this year to run at Sandia. You should come by and take your car on the track!
