Ight even witht the fucked up axle that likes to pop out, and no cooling system in yet I took the LS swapped civic for its first REAL test drive, the other rides weren't real becasue I couldn't rev past 3500 rpm. So I took that shit around the block, and I was very impressed with the completely stock LS. Even with the new clutch I had to "let it loose". 1st gear I took it kinda "easy" powershifted into second to hear a NICE chirp, when I slowed down at 55 mph cause of the bad axle it popped out anyway and I ran outta gas. Sounds kinda like a nightmare of a first test drive but it was impressive to me (maybe it was because I was driving a SOHC saturn before). Damn, I already love my new car.
