I have, and only ever had, two passions in my life since I was 8 years old: Computer Programming and Cars. I had to move a few years ago, so I don't have any friends anymore. I would love to be able to get a project car and work on it, but I'm afraid because it will be only me. I have no knowledge to fall back on other than what I have learned online. I purchased a 240sx when I was 17 for my first car, but sadly, I was screwed over. It was the funnest I've ever had. I tend to overthink things, so maybe I'm making it seem more scary than it is. What concerns me most is the suspension - also things that require welding and such... like subframe connectors.

How do you drive a swapped car in California? Do you just keep it off the street entirely?

It also needs timing to run lol, fuel won’t do much for you if it’s coming and leaving before the spark

50% of your maintenance is caused by 50% of your maintenance lol. Just make sure you're doing work correctly to avoid having to come back to your own work which is rather frustrating.

You guys forgot to include the fuel filter! Although some newer cars usually have internal filters in the pumps, a good portion have external in-line filters that can get clogged.
