    Here are a few pictures of my project. 93 honda civic sedan.
    I'll be running a gsr swap turboed. Gt35r turbo coming soon with AFI ramhorn manifold and straight thru 3" exhaust.

    ohh and FYI the wheels arent staying there. lol I will be buying rotas soon and better brakes/suspension.[​IMG]


    Check back for updates.
    Enjoy.

    Very nice! I actually like the wheels you have on it in the first picture way better than Slipstreams...

    I'm just not a Slipstream fan. I never liked the look of them- but that's just my personal opinion.

    Nice, looks like its coming along just great.
    But I think the Si rims would suit it just fine IMO.

    you get rubbing in the front? good god your wheel well is close to those tires..

    I like the look of the original rims except they would look better an inch smaller.

    cant wait to see the finished product.

    Yeah it rubs a little bit... Not that bad though, only when i make sharp turns. The tire is a 225-40 series. I should buy 205-35's and keep em. :D

    Imma keep updating this thread as i go....wish me luck.:p

    Wow. Ok, that's WAY too big for that car. 205/35 will do it though. :D

    UPDATE: INstalled rear disk conversion.
    and re routed all the brake and clutch lines...

    Waiting to see if i can get my hands on a edelbrock intake manifold, to start the wire tuck.
    Ordered fuel rail, precision 1000cc injectors, aem cam gears, and greddy timing belt today from local shop
    No pics yet.. My digi batterys are dead...Pics will be up tomorrow.


    so far i've spent about $4800 total in parts for this project. Still need another 2 grand + or so to finish it.
