I’ve ordered myself a carjack and wd40 going to try to loosen the clamp and put the muffler back in and see whether it’s going to make it any quieter… As for the engine, am i right to assume it’s “turbo ready” on z16a models? if that’s the case I’ll potentially look into adding one down the line.
but the priority is definitely get the steering wheel knocking sorted, fix the transmission play (im hoping it’s not too serious and just needs oil replacement but it does play around a bit an difficult to go into gears). and if there are any issues with suspension get them done too.
I have no idea what the situation is with the clutch as I haven’t personally driven it yet because I’m kind of scared of it, in a good way .
I still have time before the driving lessons resume to get the car fixed up, but it gives me time to learn as much as i can about it before i start driving it on the open road.
I’m definitely going to be paying you multiple visits
