Personally to me , spending money on something that people go "wow" about or looks impressive you can't put a price on.
I bought a steering wheel for my Fiat and paid a lot of money for it, but I plan on making it very fast and wanted people to get in and have it look "exotic" so I got the wheel. I don't regret it at all. The feeling is amazing , and if I give someone a ride they think it's impressive and definitely don't associate it with a regular Fiat.

Well put. Makes me want to get a new steering wheel. But i think it'd be better spent on suspension stuff for now.

The distributor may leak from the shaft seal like the 4afe is commonly known to do.
I'd use a non residue cleaner to clean the cap and sandpaper/emery cloth to scuff the contacts. If there are chunks missing from the rotor arm or the contacts on the cap, I'd replace. Rockauto is dirt cheap for that stuff with wholesaler clearance.

Canadian pricing for the new Si is out.

Sedan is $30,260
Coupe is $30,660

Kinda high.. Was expecting it to be around the $25k range, but I guess since it now as a  :zpin: turbo  :zpin: they want to charge more for it.

Also.. According to Honda's website 205hp@7.5k, 192ft-lbs@5k, regular turbo civic is 174hp@6k, 162ft-lbs@1700-5500. I think it's the same engine though, not like before where you got a K20/K24 instead of the R18.

It doesn't come with any of the Honda safety stuff that the other higher-trims do such as "Collision Mitigation Braking System", "Forward Collision Warning", "Lane Departure Warning", "Road Departure Mitigation", or "Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)2 with Low-Speed Follow (HS*)", or "Lane Keeping Assist System".

Doesn't have automatic wipers, or LED turn signals on the mirrors, or even the remote engine starter that the EX,EX-T and Touring come with.

Lastly, on Honda Canada's website there isn't the $200 option for summer tires which is lame.

Maybe by the time I get back from Keewatinohk there will be some here to test drive.

Also finally got the camping build started!


Empty bed, cleaned it out and took some measurements.



Cut the plywood to length and width, then cut out the spaces for the bulges in the side of the bed.



First test fit to make sure the cut outs lined up, all good! time to cut more supports.






The rest of the supports ready.



Now that all those are cut out, time to screw them on.



Another test fit to make sure things are still good.



Time for the side piece of plywood, I went taller with this piece, so it can hold the foam pad from sliding off the side.





I'm going to leave this end open, so I can store things like my shovel, axe, and hi lift underneath.



And thats the sleeping platorm! super easy, it's really light, and it's dead simple to remove it by myself.

yeah, these things have a **** ton of weights, inside and outside. Worst tire was 6.75 oz on the inside, 8.5 oz on the outside. I managed to place the weights with some offset that I ended up only needing about 4.5 inside and 5 outside.

posting an update in my journal thread shortly, will have more pics.
