  • new here but im diggin it

    wutzzup, I just joined yesterday, found some *really* cool STUFF. I just wanted to say hi and kick out some stats.

    thought I was the only person alive that liked festivas, I, only thursday bought my 4th, it has 78k and a terrible oil leak cumming out around the front main, looks like it could be the pan gasket, there is a little piece of rubber pokin' out. Its hard to tell, looks like it has been leaking for about 78k. It is in supercondition, Blue, as soon as i get it cleaned up and surf the site somemore ill get some pics posted.

    the one I been drivin has 252k and finally shucked the 5sp, it had been missing fouth gear for about a year. But now that I have a complete spare I might build a project car . Anyways its nice to meet everybody, later, David, Peoria Illinios.

    Nice to meet you too, couple of things though, this shouldn't be posted in the photogallery, please watch the swearing outside of the arena, and please add your general location in your profile so we all know where your from.

    Other than that welcome to the site, rock on, and I hope that you stay around and stay active for a long long time. This site is pretty fun to be a part of, it does have it's boring times, but for the most part if your in to building a really unique project car, or maintaining your stock festiva or aspire this is the place to be.

    Peace
    Logan

            OK. i got a question. My 90 has (had) a 5speed and cruzed nice at 70-75 mph, since its tranny problem I been driving a 92 with a auto/t. It sounds like a indy car on the striaght away at 55. Im pretty sure that if I pushed it to 75 it would float the valves. Is that much difference normal?

                  Yeah, I have an auto behind a BP.. rpms are a bit high at 85 compared to my 5spd BP car iirc.

                      Welcome to the site , it is nice to see a Festiva owner less than 100 miles away

                      Look in the swap section for compatibility .
                      When ever you need to look for something , just use the search button at the top . type in what you want , it works pretty good .

                          Welcome to the site.
                          This site is a great resource for the Festiva owner. Lots of info, you just have to dig a little for it.
                          I too had problems with the search tool in the begining, but somehow I got it figured out.
                          As far as engine swaps, the two most popular seem to be b6t and bp, followed by b6 and bpt.
                          There are even a couple of mid-engine projects being done.
