current mood: relaxed
current bumps: Chicago - Will you still love me

hello peepz, im alex, and im fixin to be 18 in college to be an auto technician.

Here's what i gots:

1987 Cavalier Base Model 4-Door

2.0L l4 OHV TBI

TH125 3 Speed Automatic Transmission w/ Lockup Torque Converter

Everything is pretty stock, it only has 80,000 miles on it and its running good. I complete stripped down the interior. My excuse was a rattle in and major crackage on the dash. Another explanation could be weight reduction, but either way, it is lighter, and even with the old 90hp 2.0 i kept up with a 90's civic. I dont see what every body sees in civics. I was reading my turbo mag... all the civics were getting 12's and a sunfire was getting 8's lol i mean TOTALLY gone. I like the 2.4's performance potential with the DOHC, but i've heard bad things from technicians, that they are unreliable. Any long time owners? tell me how the T-vin DOHC engine is.

Oh i was doing some research, this might help somebody...

1G1J **** *** ******
^----1=USA, 2=Canada, 3=Mexico
^---G=GM this will always be "G" for jbodies
^--1=Chevrolet, 2=Pontiac, and i forget the rest
^-J=J-Body, if this is another letter, its not jbody.

**** C124 *** ******
^----C=Cavalier Base Model or RS, F=Cavalier LS or Z24
^---1=Coupe, 3=Convertible, 5=Sedan
^--2=Restraint type still havent figured out what number is what
^-4=2.2L OHV, T=2.4L DOHC, 1=2.0L OHV, W=2.8V6, theres more but i dont know them offhand

**** **** 5Y5 ******
^---Check Digit, factory uses this for something
^--Model year. 81 is B goes up skipping I, O, Q, and U. Y is 2000. 2001=1, 2002=2, etc
^-Assembly Plant. dont know which is which yet

Hay im dave and new here. I drive a 98 Sunfire. All iv done to it is Cold air and muffler. Iv also had my stereo stolen so its a bit lighter. Also hav plat 4 split spark plugs.

Futer plans,
.Gut the interrior
.Cut out the air box, and make a new one to fit my cold air filter. And put some vents in the hood to fill the box
.Headers Poss ceramic but i just may put some vents with a downword defector on there.
.get better brakes / dosk brakes on the back.
. i wanna drop it about 1.5 in. And get some better rims.
.Done alot of research on turbo, but that looks grim and expencive so i will prob pass.

Im curantly in Iraq so i have to wait till i get back befor i do that.
