    exhaust gasket keep blowing out on Gen 2.5

    Shortly after I replaced the passenger side exhaust manifold with an OEM manifold I got another leak. Shop said it was the lower gasket on the manifold where it connects to the rest of the exhaust system. They replaced it with a new gasket and all was good. A few hundred miles and it came back...

    Gen 2.5 steering wheel options

    So I have the dreaded horn sticking in cold weather in my 98....I can either repair it but the wheel itself has seen better days after 217k miles. Anyone know if a Gen 3 airbag wheel is a direct swap, airbag and all? I could also go the aftermarket route but don't know how to wire out the airbag...

    AC compressor and blower motor not working after heater core replacement

    Just finished up the heater core on my 98 and even put in a new oem AC control unit along with a blower motor. When turning on fan nothing happens. I have triple checked all connections and don't think I missed anything. Also the AC compressor doesn't kick in when turned on. Any suggestions...

    Black Betty aka Mean Joe Green 98 Gen 2.5

    I recently picked up "Betty" from @SONICMASD and now I am adding my touches to it. While I am waiting on parts to complete the heater core I finally decided to do a paint correction and ceramic coating on Mean Joe. This is just the first step and I will finish up the paint and coatings tomorrow.

    Chinese manifolds not much of a bargain at $60

    Betty had an exhaust leak when I bought her that went away as the engine got hot. I was hoping it was just a loose nut or two and a simple fix. No such luck.... This is 2 years and 16k miles. OEM manifold will be here Monday so I can get her back on the road. Not cheap and I would rather have...

    Swapping a 3.5 into a 94 LS Montero with 5 speed

    Posted this on the ADD forum too but wanted to cover my bases and hope people can chime in. I have had 3 Montero's. Gen1 2.6, My 94 LS 3.0 and a 99 Gen 2.5. I LOVE my 94 since it was a 3 owner gem with 70k miles ( all records from new ) when I bought it 3 years ago. It now has a tad over 100k...
