Such a familiar sound. Same goes for the rest of the vid. And my exhaust seems to be louder than yours, I can barely hear it in the vid. With my door open, there'* a distinct loudass grawwwwwwwrrrrrrrrrrrrrwl on startup.





The 92-99 DIC doesn't sound like that?
Here is the exahust.... May have a wee bit of a restriction... On the 91 it used to be really quiet untill I swaped out the rear manifold that had a properly cut collector, after that we noticed it had a much deeper tone...

Also at the end of the video you'll hear the engine rev up, I found a pretty good vacume leak causing it....lol

91 SSE

And the 91 LE exahust because I'm trying to figure out what wrong with it...LMAO... Notice the diffrence in tone...

Its got its problems... Thats for sure... But for $100 I can't complain at all... LMAO

There are a series of things I need to do... Lower intake gaskets and valve cover gaskets, tranny pan gasket( fluid and filter ) as well as the waterpump... Thats a given..

Then onto the inside of the car...

Man I love these cars, although I would have to agree with your exhaust being quiet. When I had my N10 muffler still on there it was much louder...and had a very distinct tone. My DIC and compass both still function flawlessly as well. I hope you fix her up good.

Same here...

All of the parts are there... Just got to get her going... I am starting to wonder if the rear Manifold has the restriction problem that my 91 LE had... I replaced the rear manifold on it a good ways back, as the collector had some nasty cuts, and the motoe was exhaling through a small hole... I'll have to dig up the manifold and snap a pic or 2....

Gonna try and fix her up...

Little secret... If the dash ever does fail.... I have another for her

Yeah there is no leak on the 91 LE... I fixed those recently... Had a bad EVAP line...

On the 91 SSE, the EVAP line is rotted like crazy... Took me a few to find it yesterday... But I did...

The 91 LE is a diffrent problem...
