they arent any bigger, they are lighter and obviously adjustable so the cam can be advanced or retarded from the crank.
thanks for bumping this, i just picked up a chrysler airbag from big dutch (thanks again btw)

thanks! the way i installed it, it doesnt use the sight glass. I just removed it and put plugs in it. I did have issues with the threads on the drain plug though and had to re-thread it.

picked these up a while back
Image

Image

i also picked up a new rear bumper (mine has cracks from being rear ended) hoping to have this repainted and installed by carlisle.
Image

started work on the OBX modifications
Image
Image
Image
Image

all the machining is now done, i just have to have a shop install it in the spare 3.94 trans for me.

I also just recently picked up a set of new tires, went with Falken Ziex ZE-512's 205/50r16 (they're actually being installed, balanced, and aligned today)

i do have a question for you crystal or anyone else for that matter. i've got projector headlights on my car (obviously) and they have the bulge lens unlike the stock headlights, so standard fiberglass eyelids dont fit it right. I'd like to get a set made specifically for projectors. Can you or anyone else make them? I know theres a how-to on it but i'm not that great with FG and i just dont have the time. I have the money though sooo.....?

Is that the infamous 1gn Valve Cover? And where in the heck did you get that catch can holder thing that fits so perfectly in that slot??

Oh, and I'll shoot you a text in a little regarding the headliner :thumbup: :D

Yeah it's from a 1gn a/c dryer, eBay CC fits in them perfectly, looks stock.

Andrew yes 1gn VC, did it myself a few years ago, still holding up like a champ

a/c Dryer?... is that something I can pick up at a junkyard?.. I don't really know what that is, to be honest... lol.

If I had the extra funds, I would buy that other 1gn VC you have for sale... but the headliner will do for now :)

Last weekend i took a trip down to my sisters in NC, andrew (2005neonsxt) met up with me so he could get a part. while he was there we took a few pics. I call it a yankee-confederate meet lol Enjoy!

after making it all the way to NC and back, yesterday on my way home from work the #2 spark plug shot out of the head. I limped it to the local advance auto to evaluate the damage. There were no threads left in head so i couldnt even get the spark plug back in. I called up my buddy with a rollback and towed it home. :(
So i guess the next few days ill be ripping the head off and puting a helicoil on it. Good news is i'll get my new SS valves installed and head milled :roll:

getting towed home

Well got the head off yesterday, so i can get to work fixing that. I was pleasantly surprised to see how smooth the cyl walls were for a 150k engine, hopefully it stays that way.
I appologize for the cell pics...
