I got my zuki back, zuki back, zuki back...

I just picked up my zuk from Sean DeVinney, from Aftermarket4x4. What a difference!

Sean installed a very low milage 1.6 8valve motor from a 94 sidekick and did a SPOA for me.

I was very pleased with the overall performance of the engine. Even with the new 31" tires, it was still very quick. I was expecting the engine to compensate for the larger tires, but to my surprise it still was much faster than 1.3 with the stock tires.

The ride was a lot nicer than I expected. I didn't really expect it to ride as nice as it does. Even at 65mph, no wobbles, shimmies or shakes.

It looks much better with the 31s . I saw it with the origonal tires on Saturday and needless to say the 31s make all the difference in the world .

Yeah, it looked pretty silly with the SPOA and 215's. My brother said that it looked like a roller skate.

Here are some more pics

I know! I'm so excited!

I still have some minor things I need to finish up.

#1. I definately have to redo the brakes. Cut the rotors, hang new pads &amp; shoes, bleed the system. Being able to stop is a good thing

#2. Install the CB. It's been sitting in a box since a month before the Melt, but now it really needs to go in.

#3. Put on a few more miles, then change the oil.

#4. I would like to install the catalytic converter, and run it through inspection so I have a valid NJ inspection sticker, but not a super high priority.

#5. I would love to put in a coat of Rhinoliner while it is still kinda warm out, but I don't think that will happen before Zuwharrie (Duplicolor stuff that's in there now stinks)
