    the motor/tranny and aftermarket crap is worth alot more than the opening bid.

    Hell yeah. Semi-built motor, Quaife, Willwoods, coilovers.

    I need new pants. [​IMG]

    I'd love to see the thing whoop some RSX's and Evos on a road course.

    "WTF? was that a wagon?"

    something tells me that a stock evo would still beat that thing around a track.

    Yeah, but it's more about the amount of fight that little wagon could put up.

    I've always wanted to build one with a D16z6, keep the all-wheel drive tranny and put a Jackson Racing Supercharger on it. Then smoke people in my Wagovan.

    :thumbsup: :thumbsup: I LOVE IT!!!

    That's to vent the hot air, not to be a ram air setup. Go look at pictures of drift cars in Japan as well as a bunch of the RX-7 or ITR guys. Quite a few of them run the backs of their hoods up too.

    As for the AWD, Honda's AWD system in the wagon wasn't really that great.

    But I would definitely rock that wagon. :thumbsup:

    i know, ive seen TONS of cars with the ol "washer trick' but what im saying is, doing that would basically mimic a cowl induction hood...wouldnt it?

    i know the point is to get the hot air out, but im just sayin wouldnt it act like cowl induction?

    I suppose it could, if you had your intake set up that way... but I doubt many people do it on imports. Your V8 boys all have the intake manifold sitting right dead center in the V, so cowl induction makes more sense.

    good point, i forgot to think about that. but it could still draw in more air than its releasing, but who really knows. If it makes a noticable difference, then it makes a difference. just wondering.
