My dad just called me and we scored the entire ebrake system on a parts car at pick n pull and also got parts to hold the exhaust up. And I'm about to install a new steering wheel.

Added 1 hours later:

It's also leaking some water for the heater because of a wrong tube.

Added 2 hours later:

So my friend did some digging and found a lot of info on the car. It most likely never rebuilt or swapped so it most likely doesn't have a stage 3 clutch. Previous 2 owners had no f*cking idea what they were doing with the car so it's mostly put together with random pieces which I expected. The guy we bought has only had the car for about a week. My friend went on his profile to when he got the car to see that he said "I got this clapped out 240" but this 240 really has been around. And now it's my problem, but you know what? I don't care, it can be fixed and it's my first car and I love it. And that's all that matters.

How stiff is the pedal? You have a hydraulic clutch linkage correct? Even with that a stage 3 you could feel in the pedal and take offs would be rougher

We fixed the exhaust from hanging with electrical wire..... yes electrical wire. We're missing one rubber hanger because one it torn. The gas tank is a little loose. We fix the hatch (kinda) because it was rubbing a little. We took off the center console even when we didn't really need to. Tomorrow we plan on taking off just the cables after it splits into two. The passenger side doesn't even have one it was in the trunk, and the driver side is hanging with a torn end.

You most likely have no idea what I was talking about but it was about the E-brake cables.

Added 11 minutes later:

And also found out tonight while under the car that is has lowering springs up front with camber plates. But has TEIN coilovers in the rear with ZERO adjustment. or maybe there's something I haven't seen. And he said they're was adjustment all the way around but not.

Added 3 minutes later:

Also didn't get the steering wheel installed because the hub is not what I expected, BUT my friend might also be able to score me a quick release hub.

Its common to have camber plates up front only... rarely do i see anything adjustable in the rear on cheap budget cars etc.

tackling all the small shit right away is good,while you're motivated.

keep it up. post pics though!

Yeah I was going to take a some pictures but I forgot. It's staying in the air over night so I'll get up early and get some.

And that's all this car is, just the small stuff. Like the E-brake system is the biggest thing we have to do so far.
