BEHOLD!! I did a bit of engine cleaning (and scraping of salt off the muffler and tailpipe) and I got this! Who knew there was such a nice car under all that dirt!








A little bit of engine cleaning, 25 mins worth (probably NEVER done)





The interior is still dirty as ****, but well, that will wait till the spring.

EASY driving this thing, cruises along at 70 MPH w/no vibrations, 85 MP/h with a SLIGHT case of steering wheel nervousness. Turns heads tho, NO ONE (including the customs agent) knows what the hell this thing is!!

;)

Yeah, I was changing the thermostat (and I didnt buy a gasket) so I had to use a Sonata 4G64 one, make it it... I decided to clean the motor while it was all apart.

:D

If not cleaner... w/15 inch rims (these are winter 13's, hideous wheels w/nissan hubcaps but good, new tread), tinted windows, a low pro spoiler, and finished bodywork to the rear driver's QP and fuel door, as well as the bonnet front (there's some mild/moderate rust in two spots)

I want to make this car last 5+ years.... Boy is it going to need a valve lash adjustment when I return! PING PING < 2K rpm!:(

No man it's valve lash... tonight on the Jones Beach highway I took it to 110 MPh, and it was fine, but I know the sound of valve lash when I hear it!!

Feeler gauge, my friend, you will be employed upon my return to Canadia!!

I hope I don't have "jet valves" installed!

no jet valves on that one. my 2.4 has them, easy to adjust too, i dont know why everybody dumps a load in their pants when jet valves are involved, its the same as adjusting valve lash

SHe's doing fine, in about a year we're gonna try the living together thing again, this time we'll be married... and hopefully more insightful into each other's ways, so we don't fight so much... :(

I miss that highway, and I miss doing 100 MPH down it, and the guy getting pulled over.... man if I only had an unrestricted path, im sure I could get that stellar 2.0 (4g63) up to it's limit.... I passed someone at 170 KM/h today, slight sweat, I'd like to see what a true open road for the 4G would stop at... had a [email protected]+ KMH STOCK!!!

Nice, but im not doing that again. I honour the 4G63 by respecting it. If Ikeep doing this, it's not gonna last 5 years! And I just may need a family car!
