    i have an 89 si hatch . i bought the car for 500 and it wasnt running. i put a cold air intake, a new throttle body , new header and head pipe, and a new battery. the car is still missing a cat converter and cat-back exhaust. at the moment it doesnt have any oil. i dont have any money to pay a mechanic to look at it. i was woundering if anyone lives in or around murrieta CA that could take a look at it for me and give me some advice, any advice would be helpful and much appreciated

    does it turn over when you turn the key? was it sitting for a while before you bought it? and you should hook up those vacuum lines on the intake manifold
