FS Del Sol Si in MD

The transmission developed a minor third gear grind so when I replaced it. I chose a transmission from a civic CX, for gas milage reasons and cause it was free.

~144,xxx miles, still driven so it will rise as time rises.

New Stuff:
New Brake pads all around
New Clutch
CX Transmission w/ 50k miles
New Lower Ball Joint
New Front Tires
O2 sensor w/ 8k (installed with new header)

Aftermarket Stuff:
Holley Airmass Header
Pioneer Headunit
Pioneer 4-way speakers all around

Bad Stuff:
Body has some dents, its a 13 year old car afterall
Occationally there is the common idle problem. I've narrowed it down to a vacum seal, but cant find it.
Small, small, surface rust, maybe 3 mm by 6 mm.

Rust (under the taillight, where the quarter panel comes to an L):


Interior:








Trunk (Bar is Gone):


Exterior:


I'd really like you too see the car in person before buying, the body is not in bad shape, but there are a few dents i'd like to point out. I just dont want somebody to buy it then be disappointed in what they recived.

Yea, I didnt post them because they are slightly out of date (The intake and strut bar are both gone), but here's the engine bay besides that, its a little dirty.



thanks for the compliment. If you'd like a more up to date picture i'll run over and grab my friends digicam and get one up.

Forgot to add with new tranny it gets 45mpg (I average that going from Woodbine MD to York PA, driving around back roads where I live I get around 39 mpg, shifting w/o bogging the engine and going 70 mph the whole way up)
