My dd. It's a 1990 mazda 323 with a 1.8l dohc bp conversion. (the car was built by a previous owner, and I bought it and changed quite a few things and added other things. I plan on taking it apart next year and fixing up the body. ) Other mods include (in random order): B&M short throw shifter; H&R lowering springs on tokico sr struts; ZX2 front sway bar; protege lx rear sway bar; ebay strut bars front & rear; K&N drop in air filter; MX3 rear tie bar; exhintake cam swap; "cut" intake; pacesetter 4-2-1 header; 2.5 exhaust with high flow cat; dynomax bullet muffler as resonator; cherry bomb turbo muffler at the back to quiet it down; Blue interior with MX3 GS recaro seats; protege rear seat; 1993-1994 escort gt fanblade rims with 195/60R15 tires up front and 225/??R15 tires in rear (can't remember aspect ratio); protege lx 4 wheel disc brake conversion; corksport stainless brake hoses; Timing advanced to 18*; stupid under seat neons that I'm taking out when I rebuild the car next year; cracked jdm familia rear garnish that will soon be replaced be a brand new OEM garnish; silverstar ultra headlight bulbs; yellow fog lights mounted in bumper opening

Nice! The JDM bumpers are a good visual upgrade for these, should be lighter too.

nice setup, now to grab a cheap engine stand grab a second BP motor and build a BPT for it
