I like you already. Determined to mintify your car before modify. Add all the cooling system components to that list. I mean, everything in the cooling system. Your car is at the age/mileage where it starts to fail and overheat the engine, which will kill it. ECS tuning has a complete overhaul kit with everything you need except a radiator and extra gallon of coolant. When I did my overhaul, I went with an all-aluminum radiator, so I didnt have to worry about the plastic side tanks cracking (which they tend to do).

You're also at the ripe age for the suspension needing new bushings all the way around. Do a little bit of searching and read the stickies, theres tons of bushings and if they fail, you could have serious problems.

Oh, and the way it works here is pics or it didnt happen
