I like how it is clearly labeled as an oil catch can.

Thanks man! When it was my only car I constantly kicked myself for getting a coupe, but now that it's racecar I'm stoked that it's the coupe. And I'm partial to the pre-face lift front bumper on the coupe vs the sedan, so it ended up working out.

I got a sedan because I have two little ones and they have been in my car a total of 1 time :rotfl:

Got to work on the engine. I cleaned it up some and we pulled off the valve cover. Turns out one of the exhaust side spring retainers on cylinder 2 was busted. It's quite possible that this is all that's wrong with the engine. It turns over (manually spun the crank) and it seems to have compression on most, if not all of the cylinders.

We shall see!

Nothing solid. It really depends on the state of the engine. I bought it solely to learn about the engine. It was pulled from a 2012 Si because of knocking. If that broken retainer is all that was wrong this thing was a STEAL.

Got it for $100 on Offerup last year, and it's been sitting in storage for the last 13 months. Might tear into the valvetrain this weekend.

Who knows what this thing will turn into. Only time will tell.
