Hello all, my name is Jim or cityside75 on the boards. I'm from Carol Stream, IL located outside of Chicago. I just picked up an 02 black wagon with 45k on it, and I absolutely love it. Of course, the performance is great but i also have two kids, and the car is so practical for us it's just ridiculous. My practical father thought I made a great choice, while my performance-loving buddies are amazed by it too. It doesn't happen often that those two factions see eye to eye
I also have an 88 Supercharged MR2, that is currently being stored for the winter. I'm keeping that car near-mint for my kids to love like I do someday, it has 66,000 original miles on it, and currently gets about 1,000 a year on nice days when I can take the T-tops off. I've made a few minor modifications to it, including a revised intake and a HKS Supercharger Pulley upgrade, along with the MK3 Spyder wheels.
Thanks to the board, I've already learned a lot about my car. I do have a question though...on the MR2, the intake was an easy choice for the first mod for the car, but I don't hear much about intake mods here. Is the stock system pretty good, or do a lot of people go with a cone filter or something similar?
Also, I'm slightly intrigued by the pre-turbo cat removal mod that seems so popular, but will my car fail emissions without it?
Thanks for the info, and for the board!
