well i guess toast wasnt the right word...

but my car wouldnt do well in icy cold weather all the time....also...it too low to the ground and i would be afraid of hydrolocking my cold air intake, which is about 8 inches from the ground behind my front valence. Too much moisture is not good for it.

Also, my exhaust headers are straight through all the way out which eliminates the catallic converter, and therefore would be too breathy in cold weather.

I had a 2 piece iceman intake on my civic...just pulled the extension off during the winter for the wet season and put it back on for the hot summer.



I learned a lot from that car, I miss her so much. Although I know my next car won't be fwd. I kind of would like to convert a JDM dc2 to a FR layout...one of my favorite cars but without fwd! yay!
