On a side note, how did you get your head and exhaust manifold so shiny?

It'd prolly cut off a bit of value when I go to sell it, so I prolly won't do it.

gives it more airflow for sure and a throatier sound at wot
Yeah I can beat cars off the line, but usually when I mess around, its on the highway... As for the zetec swap, I wanted to for a while, but it would be expensive, and would take a lot of time. More time than I have. And the car would be out of use for a bit, which I can't have. As for the Intake, I might do that. Does it help the power at all?

Eeeeh. The 110hp really kills it for me. And I want to sell it before I break something (clutch.) With how I drive it, something is bound to go soon.

As for cleanliness, the paint has shine, but there's soooo many swirls in it. I tried using some things to remove them the other day, but it just made it much worse. It's gotten to the point where when I look at my car, all I see is the swirls.

But again, the power just doesn't do it for me. I've lost to minivans, old old tauruses, and junker trucks. Other than that, I love the car. Love the 5 speed manual, good fuel economy even when I drive it like I stole it, and that it handles pretty well.
