What's the most "ghetto" thing you've ever done to your SR20?
I went to wash my engine at a bay tonight since it was full of grease from the recent headgasket swap, but when I got there I realized that:

1) I had no plastic bag to cover the air filter and 2) No screwdriver to just loosen the clamp to just take it off. I was wearing a beanie though, so I took it off, and here is the result:

:nightmare: the sad thing is, it's a few years old, but I think that was a $30 hat.

Anyone else got any stories?

I also have used tape to hold a headlight bulb in, and zipties to hold basically an entire exhaust on.

P.S. pics of the bay tomorrow, it is pristine

I have a cut up rag as a PCV filter right now...
It's actually been that way for years.

People loved my speak wire engine harness.

Cut 2 pepsi cans open and used them to make a couple for 3" downpipe to test pipe. 10psi later I was open downpipe again.

When I got my B14 many years ago I drilled a bunch of holes in the lower part of the air filter box. Made all sorts of neat noises.

I used a cut up monster can, 2 pipe clamps and some gun gum to cover a big hole in my catback to get my car through the yearly car inspection here in Ireland

Not really on my SR20, but at least it was on an SR20 powered car (my NX):

Did this to see how worn a motormount can get, the stock ones aren't really up to the job. It held a couple of hundred miles then the wood was malformed enough to fall out of there. Of course it is a Prothane now.
