My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

Look through the EWD you clown.  Yeah, it's probably the radio.  If it has a stripe of yellow tape 6 or so inches from the back of the plug, it's definitely for the radio.

Motor is nearly buttoned up, need some clamps. Wanted to say thanks to Kyle and Brian and Demesio for helping me figure all this fucking bullshit out.

Lmao, yep. 

Which I still don't fully understand why I need a valve there. Most non toyotas *always* have coolant running to the heater core. I don't really get why I was told not having a valve here is stupid.


But yeah, in lieu of spending a lot of money on essentially the same thing, if I need some heat, ill just pop the hood and open er up. 

I tried to put one of these on, but it just didn't work. I still might.

Same here sort of. Parts store only carries a valve that moves differently than stock so I just leave valve disconnected. Open/close by hand.

Glad your shit box lives.
No.

Well, at least it's not the next step down, a pair of ViseGrips.

I paid $25 for a new control valve to clear my ITB manifold, and it wasn't even chinese,

so my climate control still works.

Thanks Jacob. I look back on the earlier posts on this thread and realize all the mistakes I made. This shell is kinda crusty but whatever, sentimental value or whatnot. 

 

I tossed it out not thinking about it and then realized it was ridiculous to buy again. I will see how it works. I kind of like it. Keep it closed for track days, open it for street. Gives me an excuse to check over my engine before tracking it anyways. 

Do we wanna start a poll; how long will it take for me to smash this car up / blow it up?

You'll probably last longer than me haha.

 

All this heater valve stuff I was stuggling to get mine to open (vacuum actuated) with 264s so I bought a vacuum pump and had big dreams but instead just zip tied the valve open for now haha, not that you will go back to factory valve, but the actuating part is the same x7/v8 you just have to switch the arms outs.  My buddies one had lost both ports to corrosion. 


 

why do we spend our time and money on shitty cars that cant love us back?

Got some minor shit done tonight. Work is slowing down a bit due to my cluster migraines. What a painful condition.

Put a 90* adapter on my turbo feed cause I figured it would rip and start a fire.

Goddamn, I want a SportCross daily bad.  But I've decided to blow up my Impreza wagon before I start actively looking for one

 

Have you checked the hood clearance with that radiator yet?  I have the actual X8 Mishimoto and I had to shave some rubber off the lower mounts so the cap cleared.  But it could just be my car; my radiator support isn't exactly factory straight anymore.
