july/august 07.

my dd civic blew up, so i decided to fix this thing and drive it while i rebuild the civic. found out there was a short causing the fuse to blow, the fuse that supplied power to the auto trans computer. the short was in the abs harness yeah.

so i fixed that, and also removed a bunch of control computers and stock audio crap. also put in a new alternator and got rid of the optima. optimas suck. horribly.

Oh really? I thought those were mounted with waffer cookies :lol: .

I know that there is a bracket you can buy that allows you to use the V35 Brembos for other Nissans like the z32, but I have never heard of the SE-R ones being used.

Oh by the way, I demand pics of your Z32 5 speed swap :D .
