Well had a set back thursday went for my state patrol inspection and fail because I bought the motor 3 years ago and now that person doesn't own the car. So i have to find either the person that owns it now and have them write me a receipt of buy another motor fucking washington i hate this shit.


on the plus side this fucker is quick for bein so low compression I figures it would hurt but it runs with the mustang gt no problem.Dude was pissed when i told him I still had two gears to go and I was already a full car ahead

Oh man but low compression sucks on the street. That what everyone else tells me. Same thing some dude at the track told me b4 I raced his type-arrr. Low compression sucks so bad that I only had 3 car lengths on him at the end of the track.

Fuck the haters, Low compression is where its at!!

Wait, if they won't pass the hatch because the motor, why would they pass it in the 4dr? And if they would pass a car with a diff motor, why not put the d15b7 in the hatch until it passes if you have the title? Other state's rules confuse me. In WI all you have to do for pre-96's is pay license+reg. No inspection, no tests, no nothing. They can't even legally ask you to pop the hood.

Title: Re: 92 4 door eg ls-t updated 3/29/10
Post by: jdmhatchracer94 on March 30, 2010, 10:13:05 PM
thats what I am doin using the engine from the 4 door in the hatch to pass inspection. I put the ls in the 4dr cause it is on a clean title there for I can fully insure it the hatch can only have liability. Pluse it give me a reason to build another engine might go f22 in it buddy has one sittin.

Well pulled a 13.25@105.xxx mph and she survived gotta get the vids up but my comp is bein gay. also this was on stock cams, no tuning, stock suspension, and a prayer all in all great time. Only prob i had was a pin hole on the heater hose.
