New here from 190Revolution

Hey my name is Dave, I'm 22 and I've had an 87' 2.3-16v for 4 years. Over the years the car has had many things replaced due to poor po maintenance. I have replaced many parts and will replace many more. Here are some pics when I first bought the car:

Since then I have done away with the SLS for Koni Adjustables and matched them with H&R race springs. I have also done the 400E brakes, stainless steel brake lines, 400E master cylinder, and the booster. Then I did the 500E front bar, & waiting to install my EvoII rear bar. I was able to get acetyl shift bushings and those tightened up the shifts like you wouldn't believe. I put a new clutch in on my own time during spring brake, took me 3 solid days without a lift and only using an assortment of hand action jacks from other friends vehicles. It was around 15 degrees in a very drafty garage wearing 2 pairs of jeans and 2 sweatshirts (my friends were down in Florida ) The whole car was repainted right before I bought it. I also use 45x225 in the rear and 35x115 in the front. Makes for a nice little raked effect.

Pics of all that stuff later. Right now the car is waiting on a PCV hose because mine is hard and brittle and has a hole at the elbow right by the valve cover. The only other thing I have to do is replace my fuel accumulator and maybe my fuel pumps. The car doesn't like to start sometimes after the engine has been warmed up. I've tested and tested with my multimeter to figure out of its electrical but so far haven't really turned up anything. I'm pretty sure I have isolated the problem to a vacuum leak or fuel delivery.

Other than that I friggin love this car. It hasn't seen many winter days but I do have a set of winter tires and that makes all the difference. They were made for studs but opted to get the non-studded snow tires. They shake over over 70mph but if you intend to ever drive in the snow with a 190 or even a 16v please buy winter tires and don't spare any expense. From my experience you don't want to drift in front of a state cop because they don't like it
