I need to put new brakes, suspension, tires, exhuast, cat, electric airpump, and i guess an safc or something for tuning. I dont want to do this all ghetto but as cheap as possable since money is going to be real tight now. Any ideas on where to find some of this stuff cheap? I got to make this car drive well now, before all the little things didnt matter.

Why the SAFC? It's kind of a waste of money on the NA if you ask me. Maybe if you were going to upgrade injectors and run a monster bridge port. I just sold one cheap too LOL



Why do an airpump at all, you live in FL, cut the cats and axe the airpump.



Tons of sources for cheap parts out there. I dunno if I would do springs, unless you want to lower it, if you do check the spring rates cause the vert springs are stiffer then most of the aftermarket sets.

car runs horribly rich right now i wanted the safc to tune it and try and get a little better mpg out of it. The cat and airpump becuase the smell is driving me crazy now. And the stock suspension is worn out so i need springs,struts, bushings, and all the good ****. and the exhuast has leaks and is blown out a little so a new catback.

if it runs too rich you should be able to adjust it out. have you tried setting your tps?

TPS is set no vacuum leaks or anything else, ive spent a lot of time under the hood of this car. But the problem is I have no emmisions left on it or anything else so now im trying to get it to run a little better, guess im going *** backwards though.

I've never had the emissions crap being axed cause the car to run poorly.



You might try fixing the exhaust leak before going to the effort of putting all the emissions stuff back on.



Like I said before, there's no reason that you should need a AFC for a near stock motor, NA especially. It's amazing you are running rich with stock injectors, those suckers run close to capacity as it is.



You want good gas milage you picked the wrong car LOL

that car can get 20mpg with the AC on in traffic, on a open road with no ac you can push 25 easy.
