There's a high probability that if the engine isn't rebuildable I will be parting out the pieces that are still good from the engine, maybe the DCT transmission. I'm currently looking for a parts car locally to investigate if manual swaps are practical on these cars.

Well you can't heel/ toe a dct so that should answer that question. πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜
PM me if you're selling the head. πŸ‘

I never realized how protruding the headlights are on these things before. If this thing sticks around i'm having a local shop 3d scan the front end and make some headlight delete covers and i'll run hella DTM headlights in the bumper

Looks like someone took a bite out of that one exhaust valve. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ
Yeah that pretty much explains nonexistent compression on there cylinder.
A little JBWeld and your good. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ€™
Btw have you found the rogue chip anywhere in the engine? 😳😬

Sexy and a well done accent treatment on the rest of the car. 😍🀀
I've always loved a two tone accent for the interior and did the same as you but used factory blue colored pieces from a Tercel to two tone my Paseo which was black. It looked amazing and completely changed the cars flavor. 😍
Nice work man. πŸ€™ I'd rock that any day of the week.
Wanna trade for a week? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

Finally got my axle back exhaust in from Evilla Motorsports and damn does it sound a lot better. Figured since you can't get performance gains with this car that I might as well go with an axle back. This thing took 30 minutes to do and only required two bolts to be removed since the hangers were already welded on. The only thing I had to do was remove the spot from the OEM tips since the new tips weren't wide enough to fit so I'm going to get some sort of mesh to fill in the openings.

Cats or res by the cat? I don't want to make it sound like a fart can. The setup now has a nice deep tone to it.

Wow!!! Absolutely love this...can you share what set of lighting you used to get this look? Just recently traded up from a 2014 NAV base to a 2019 Turbo DCT in Lake Silver and think this would look amazing on it!!
If you're talking about my LEDs I bought three sets from Amazon and one set from eBay for my rims. I attached a picture.

So did mine until the cats were deleted and that's what the car needed. Deceleration now has occasional pops and bangs and a nice gurgle to it.
Its rowdy on acceleration but nowhere close to a fart can. πŸ‘

Cats only to delete. Keep the mid pipe resonator and it'll sound amazing. That's what I basically have and it gets compliments from everybody that hears it.
Nice work man. πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
