    OK, first off.. will a 87 HF bumper fit on a 86 Si? if it would, what do i need? i tried and the 87 bumper is short.

    second..when i accelerate, around 3 or 4k rpm, my car wont go any higher in the rpm range. any ideas what could be causing this?

    third...anyone ever gutted out thier rex? any pointers? i pulled out body panels and its very dirty. just need suggestions ideas or pics.

    THANK YOU!!

    well not reving, your in whats called 'limp mode'. do you have a check engine light? any codes? just complete a swap? just bought the car? more info!

    if your asking how gut it, get a haynes manual! or use the 'move it around and feel for the bolt' method.
