    I used a gallon of non reduced product for my entire car, and still had some left over. You might be able to get away with 2 quarts, but its going to be close.

    nope.i though alot about it and the integra wasnt going to be a reliable DD..being turbo,running dsm 450's and the clutch/flywheel setup it woulda been a bitch to DD and run fine with gas prices..so i got a 95 civic..

    but im having a hard time figuring things out..
    the color is bg33p3(says on the door tag) but the car is dated 9/94..which the 94's dont come in b633p3..so idk wtf is going on with that situation.

    Do you know anyone who has a body shop? Have them buy it for you with their discount.
