88 are slow

my cavy was way faster then a 88 mx6 GT/ so your car must be really slow. And they did not come with turbo. So you heard wrong. it had around 187hp. But know I own a Celica gts. Its not faster in anyway like my old car. But it runs nice and its good on gas. @-

I was talking about my car, bro. Just a joke. My friend did have a 94 Z24 Cav, pretty quick and lasted 250K+ :eek: Although, stock for stock we never got a chance to race although I wished we did, he ended up getting a Probe.

I drive a 96 M edition. :tup:

I do have pics of it, but I'm not smart enough at the the moment to figure out how to post them. :D

mx6cat - I took a look at your car domain site - and that's actually not the 6 I've seen around campus. I've seen a green one with rough paint. a red one w/o spoiler, and on occasion a light blue one, all 2nd gens. But it's always cool o see another owner around, especially one that's a girl!

hehe thanx. no, audio install is something i just do not go near ;) LoL.
I really don't have many mods. The car came with the intake, so I didn't do that. I don't have the stuff to put rims on tires ;) . I put in my interior lighting and my mazdaspeed decal if thats what u mean hehe.
ooh and update. i cleaned up my headlights with the rubbing compound trick. looks good. ill post pics soon.

Can't wait for the new pics

I can't wait to see the new pics, hehe ;)
what was the rubbing compund trick? This summer somebody smashed into my front passenger side of my car and their insurance company only bought me one new headlight, so i have a brand new one and an original headlight for the drivers side. And it looks weird. I considered buying 2 new ones, possibly angel eyes but it costs a lot for a canadian like me :sigh:
So yeah, the rubbing compund might heal the troubles. write to me anytime.
Later,
Koala

To get that icky yellow tint out i just wet a cloth and rubbed hard with rubbing compound and wiped it clean. a couple times and it looks like new. good stuff. I should be gettin my film developed soon and then ill post my pics, probably before Thanksgiving.
I'm plannin on doin a homemade mesh grille with some mesh type matherial thats sittin in my garage. After Xmas time I hope to have glow gauges, strut bar, clear side lenses, and a new intake (since everyone says my K&N sucks..hey i didnt put it in! ;).
I'm thinking of getting Hotshot. found a nice one for 195 online. There is an intake for cheap on procarparts.com like 85 bucks for the mx6 but it doesnt say the brand which worries me. does anyone know what brand that one is? I dont wanna get a big POS. ill prolly just stick with Hotshot.
But Koala, def. try out the compound trick and see if u are satisfyed b4 u buy new lights.

You can make a CIA for only $30. I'm getting mine for free from another mx-6 owner who lives nearby :D he's giving it to me for free, i'm not sure why, maybe since he has a sweet muffler the two sounds just don't go together, so he uninstalled his CIA.

Anyways, i'm going to reply to some other threads now

I can't wait til the new pics come out :D

Oh before i forget, when is thanksgiving for you americans?

Later,
Koala

You can get the parts at home depot, i probably will take the CIA for free but i may not use it since I want to make my own. I wish PEI had a home depot, all we have up here is canadian tire, haha, it's crap but at least it's cheap, we call it Crappy Tire, it sounds retarded but the name says it all :eek:
