Default Extremely slow B2 build

Well im going to take my time with my Bonco II but i decided to make a build thread to track my progress. So this is what i got.

The day i bought it


Got it for 500 dollars and i paid the tags, this it already had: headers, new cats, glasspack, new shocks, shift kit, performance coil, new dist. Cap and rotor and plugs and wires. Already a maf 2.9 idk if it came stock or was converted, has the older bigger 2.9 throttle body. Has new pads and rotors too. Cruise control and power windows and locks work. Pretty much everything works but no a/c or heater tho. And yes unfortunately its 2wd and automatic.

Now to my part, first mod was 2" lift spacers and guess what something off ebay wasent a direct fit so i had to modify them to fit in the coil.

Before:



After:



So i got it all put together and the brake lines were newer and still good but i decided to put new ones on just so i dont have to mess with it again for a while haha so now im in the middle of that and will post pics when im done

Got the new lines on (what a pain) and bled the brakes


By the way i highly recommend buying a mityvac for brake bleeding! It makes it a one man job and gets those sticky bubbles out


And heres a pic of her on jack stands and my work area haha


And while i was under there i found this:


So since im keeping the sway bar for now i went to autozone to get a replacement but they didnt have the cheap single but the guy was really nice and must have hated his job and gave me the expensive 50 dollar pair for the price of the single ($15). Score! So i replaced both.


And i got this sweet maf adapter and cone filter from ebay for $16:


Also it had a hideous hood scoop so im working on getting rid of that and patching up the dumb hole




Then the bumper was bent and wasent going to allow me to fit my bigger tires so i jus cut what i needed to:


And heres how it sits as of now:



Up next is bigger tires (31x10.5r15s) an alignment and an aftermarket temp guage cause the stock one is broke.
