Ok they locked the old thread so I revived it. I am a chevy fan at heart, but have seriously fallen for this car. I have had the engine replaced the first month i had it cause it fried the bottem end. Two days ago I had a new timing belt put in and the car only has 88000 miles on it. Oh and the dealership is retarded took a month to get the motor in then they didn't replace the throw out bearing when they replaced the clutch. But I still enjoy the car and continue to drive it, and will to the day it quits completely. Then I will just rebuild it better. As far as Zetech over Spi I would take my car anyday, have driven both and like the way the spi runs better. I have outrun a zetech with mine and many other cars, its not so much the vehicle as the driver.[ffrocks]

thanks this is the newest car I have owned. I have always had hand me down cars, but have always had just as much pride in all of them. It just takes time and the want to make your car what you want.

sorry I thought my spi was fast for a while but then I exited my ricer shell and realized it was slow as shit and thats when I started buying other cars for having fun in and the foci as a good gas mileage having daily driver. It gets good gas mileage and is reliable, it is not a racecar, heck it will barely beat a stock zetech with all available bolt ons being on the SPI

also I dumped a shit ton of nitrous on the spi and it held it well enough to dip into the 14's

the turbo kits that I puit on were half ass and never lasted long enough
but all that go fast shit was a learning tool and the spi a robust and unbreakable platform to try it out on

arrestmespi , I believe this thread was entitled "Some SPI pride!!! " not " Its my own dang fault and engineering my turbos never lasted and it my must be personal driving skills that lead a tot with hot wheels to smoke my car" .

But I do have pride in my car. No major major problems and have outlasted many of my friends civics and prelude engines.Bought the car new in 02 and had here ever since.

hey, I'll settle with that [thumb] well by any means it is not the fastest car, but who cares, you shouldn't be drag racing toddlers anyway [hihi]

Yes, I'm gonna swap my engine eventually.........but I'll probably put close to another 100K on it before I do, so woot. I love mine, it runs really well and quiet (minus the exhaust, lol) and could use a little polishing, lol.

mmm, polished SPI valve cover.... I may do it [thumb]
