      this is how it looks now im planning on getting it lowwerd a bit (not too much) and a few other things including maybe a swap to a 16 vavle or a 2.0 L from a jetta. anyway this is my baby right now and shes sick. it runs fine untill it gets warm then it sputters and dies on me. i think it might be a thermostat or O2 sensor you guys have any ideas?

      I'd buy a bentley manual, it has trouble shooting charts with symptoms, cause and cures.

      Hmm, maybe take it down to a mechanic at a import car repair shop.
