Slow down Chee...

OP: Start with shifter bushings

If that doesn't help, and/or your gear selector ON the trans has excessive play, you should replace the "Sugar Cube"

After that, I would look at the shifter cables, THEN get to more labor intensive work....

could be a variety of things. Check shift cables, bushings, clutch pedal etc to rule out quick simple things. With these old JDM cars you never what you'll get. If it's not any of those then you're probably looking at a slipping clutch and changing that isn't too fun on the GT4s.

They aren't plug and play. The wiring is different. You would have to rewire.
There are a few threads addressing this if you search through some of the old threads like this one:

Hope it can help you on your search.

I just assumed that Chee used quarantine time to get himself cut and that the lack of sun left him pale.


I did lose 20 lbs but still not white enough...

Why does that look more like Luke and less like you Chee?


Yeah, I see what you mean. In the right light, Luke does kinda look like me and I, him. I'm sure he's often mistaken for an Asian man just like you've been mistaken for Indian. laugh.gif

I mean...I know it's been a long time since you've driven something 'performance' but man cars get hot! Also if you're missing ANY heat shields that'll really get the hood super hot, plus that's an aluminum hood so it moves heat through it with great efficiency. There's a reason the 7th gen has the scoop in the hood...it's not for getting air to the engine IT'S FOR GETTING AIR PAST THE EXHAUST so you don't set the car on fire and melt stuff on the other side of the engine bay bulkhead! At idle you can just watch the heat rising out of the scoop and feel it if you're near it, reverses to become a chimney when sitting still laugh.gif

If heat still seems like an issue you can wrap some of the exhaust, as long as it's good quality stainless, get it ceramic coated to *help* with radiated heat, or fabricobble some additional heat shields. There's also the time tested and track approved method outlined below in this video.

hey....... my matrix is both an XR and AWD model. The more letters you have the more performance so that's PLENTY of performance. laugh.gif
Maybe you're right and I'm just being overcautious. Never had the fender get that hot though so it might be because of the CF hood. Also I'm missing some gaskets in the header and the exhaust is still cut after the b pipe so that would add some heat under the hood. I'll monitor it after fixing those two things. Might have to follow Tigawoods and cut a big ol hole in my hood as well.

what tow service did you use to get the car to that location? were they expensive?


The nationwide BEAMS towing company.
Phone is 1-800-BROKE-CELI
They don't charge anything except for pity and a handful of shameful stares. (I can still feel the stares on me...)

You did a good job of editing the jack stands out of those pictures and adding a background behind the car!

Just kidding. If the temp gauge stayed normal, I would suspect exhaust to be the source of the heat. It doesnít hurt to do a once-over of the cooking system and make sure you arenít low and have no bubbles in the system now that youíre starting to put a few miles on the swap.


You've got quite the eye for my photoshop tricks. laugh.gif

Ah, yea totally forgot that my exhaust is currently pouring right back up into my engine bay basically. That would make the most sense. I'll take a look a the cooling system as well just in case I made noob mistakes because I'm a noob.

Edited some pics last night. Turned out pretty nice. BEAMS ran good. Threw out a bit of heat though, temp gauge was fine but the hood and fender were very hot to the touch. It'll go into the garage soon so I'll have time to figure everything out. Get a new power steering hose in there and bolt up the AC and whatever else needs finishing up. Enjoy the pics!

BEAMs has been outta the garage for a while now. I take it on the occasional ride up and down these back roads. The 1st gen now occupies the garage because I thought it ran outta gas but it may be a bad fuel pump relay or something because it won't stay running even with new gas in it. I can start it but as soon as the fuel in the carb is used up it dies. FUN! maybe it just needs a BEAMS swap....

But I'm going out to wash the BEAMS in a bit and take it down one of the nice country roads here to take some fall photos before making room for both cars in the garage and THEY BOTH GO ON JACK STANDS! laugh.gif laugh.gif


pic so some of the people in here will shut up. (not like they will but still...)
