So it seems photobucket has decided to not suck anymore. Imagine that. 

When did they not suck anymore? Still can't see the pics yet. Is there a news they are reversing their decision?

The car hasn't really done much. I moved back to CA mid sep 2018 and it's just sat. It has a strange misfire type issue at a specific throttle at what i guess is 2500-3000rpm. If I floor it through that range it's fine, but if i'm trying to accelerate like a normal driver it starts to burble till I get out of that range. 

 

When it was weighed at Touge Factory  (when I picked the car up) it was 2460lbs with 5 gallons in the tank. So it's around there. That's with bumpers and 15" wheels. So it's lighter than most S30's. My S30 weighs 2160lbs, but it's completely gutted. 

 

I have been doing more work on my S30, swapping in T3 goodies. The next steps for my ZX are some rota wheels, then dropping it off at a shop to get a whole new set of gauges and a retune on it. I've been mixing 100oct with 91oct to get 93ish oct.

What's your plan to smog it? Still has the SR right? With any luck we'll have good news in a week and it will be a non-issue.

 

The usual "I got a guy". It still has valid Iowa registration, so not too concerned as I don't drive it daily at all. But I will need to take it in before end of May.
