Wheel spacers.

Hi, so I haven't seen any definitive threads that match what I'm looking for. I have a 03 vibe with the alloys and the wheels are honestly really recessed. I don't track or anything and not much stress is on the wheels. So does anyone know exactly the size needed to just get the wheel flush with the...

1zz,2zz. Differences?

So this may seem like a silly question, but does anyone know the specific differences between the two motors? Is it just a intake manifold and a ecu tune, or is it a completely different animal all together? I used to have a rsx and the main difference between the base and type S (engine wise) was t...

Selling/parting out

Hey guys, I'm selling/parting out my 03 vibe. It just ticked over to 170k miles, the clutch is going out (still drivable), and there's a knock in the motor (also still drivable, does turn over), the hood has some paint chips on the leading edge, and there's the minor wear and tear on the rest. Tires...

Re: Cold air intake

First, I'm sorry and I know that must suck. Don't trust AutoZone. If you can, I would take it back and get my money back. Go to CarID.com, you put in your car and year and it shows all parts they carry for it, oem and aftermarket.

Re: Help, experience, and opinions needed

It just turned barely over 170k miles. I turned it in and tried the unplug injectors trick. I think it could be rod knock. Has anyone had rod knock? Did you have to replace the whole motor or were you able to just replace the bearings and everything ended up fine? I'm still gonna have a professional...

Help, experience, and opinions needed

So day before last my motor started to have a tapping/knocking/vibration noise. It always occurs around 3000 rpm in the rear passenger side of the motor. I got a few opinions on it, one being that a camshaft sensor may be out, the other is that it wants to throw a rod. There aren't any check engine ...

I agree, a k series is what is use . But i wouldn't. You won't win many (if any) races in these, especially a auto. Mine handles turns and curves much better and surprisingly flat. My advice is either use it as your daily since you already have race cars. Or sell it and get something a little better...

Re: Bought a used 2005 Vibe AWD with quirks

Could seem stupid, but I would try and sell/trade it for a different vibe or matrix. I have a base with the 5 speed manual and it's the best. Good fuel economy and better power. You lose both of those with the AWD (unless you live somewhere extremely cold and icy, then by all means, keep it). Now I'...

Swaps between vibes and celicas

Hi, so I've searched all over (more than just this forum) for information on if it would be possible to swap things like the intake manifold off of a celica GTS, or any aftermarket parts like camshafts or headers between the two. My mechanic logic would say yes since they are essentially the same mo...

I don't want to "restore" it. I think it looks ugly, but I'm a auto design student, so I'm picky. I was just looking at Carid (my preferred site) and I saw the spoilers for the matrix are better looking than any for the vibe. So has anyone tried taking off the roof rails? Wouldn't the rear roof spoi...

Thanks, I'm definitely taking stuff out to shave weight. For the exterior I was thinking painting/wrapping the grey parts (cause it has that nasty grey plastic on the bumpers and stuff) white and then painting the fog light recesses black. Anyone ever tried this?

I was wondering that myself. The only thing I see against it would be that the distance they pipes have t9 go down is shorter in the Celica I think. But Im pretty sure the intake manifold would fit.

I have some knowledge on building motors and such (primarily the Honda K series and the GM LS) and if I've learned anything, it's that one motor is in multiple cars and some parts are interchangeable. Our cars have the same motor as the Celicas (in the same year at least), has anyone tried snagging ...

Hey, I have a 2003 Pontiac Vibe. It is in fairly good condition, but the hood is pretty badly chipped (as in not even any paint) and I want the car to have a hot hatch feel and look. Does anyone have anything they've done to their car that makes it look a bit meaner? Thanks!
