    Very clean looking engine bay. The black components with the SY paint look really good. Looks like SY in the photo. What color wheels? Just curious because your engine bay theme is yellow and black.

    Owned the car over 4yrs and 12k Miles. Literally the first time I’ve ever wiped down the engine bay. Had a few problems crop up after letting the car sit all summer while I was out of town and realized I need to show it some love.

    I want to note I " liked " your car and how clean it looks. Not the part where you leave it for weeks unintended.

    Hahah. It was months. Get sent out for work April-sept every year.

    Side note. I used this stuff on my ZX 10R back in the day. After 4 yrs the guy that took it in part trade on the cobra said it looked brand new.

    It gives an even slicker feel than a fresh wax job in my opinion.

    Yep, nothing gets that heart rate up more than when that 1/4 inch ratchet just spins in the hole and that plug will not budge LOL........ Made sure I changed both mine a few years ago.

    I finally put in a stifflers drive shaft loop, way better than regular designs and definitely makes me feel better dumping the clutch at 5k

    it looks like your car still has a/c lines, right?

    but i can't tell from the angle of the pic whether or not you left the a/c compressor in the car or if you disconnected it and kept it on the engine.

    i also am researching dropping mine out the bottom, but i want to make sure that it is not necessary to have to crack the a/c system

    in other words, is there enough clearance for the a/c compressor to swing out of the way while you drop the engine out of the bottom?

    thx
