Well the time has come to start my own lil project thread. Maybe I'll have as much success as Andrew has had on his So here goes nothing... I'll go back in time alil bit and bring you up-to-date later in the post. I own a 94 GSR Sedan that I bought from jappwr on H-T. Paid $4200.00. It had 17x,xxx miles on the O.D. and around 50,000 on the new engine (stock from Acura). Here's a few pics of how it was when I bought it. A pic of me at the track. I bought the car w/no thermostat. Since I wanted to have heat, I decided to install one. Long story short, I have a blown headgasket.. Nothing too bad, but I have exhaust gases in my coolant. So, I've been saving up to get that fixed.. More on that later. One of the first things I did was clean up the headlights.. As you can see from this pic, MOthers mag polish and a lil elbow grease do wonders. The passenger side is polished and the driver-side is not. Looks much better IMO. After some leather seats and an ITR header, the next modification for my car was some Rota slips... Before: After: My bro in law (andrew) had bought them for his CRX, but messed up on the tire size.. he Orderd 55 series instead of 50's.. So, the HUGE tire size was NOT my choice.. But my tires here shot... Heres what was on my car: So the deal ened up working out good for me.. He got my fat fives and $300.00 and I got new wheels/tires. Next up was the 98-01 conversion. I disliked the front/rears of the 94-97 Tegs alot.. Plus my front was kinda geeked up in the first place. The first thing I bought was the rear, which was white so it matched pretty good. Before: After.. ANd It even has the DOHC Vtec emblem on it =) Then I found a real good deal from another H-T member.. lonnieboosted. He was selling the front of off his turbo 00 DC2, in milano red . $300.00 for everything including lights. I drove nearly to Miami to pick it up Pics of the install: me lookin like a retard being happy I'm getting a ew front end.. Ta Daa!! Sexy My car has lipstick now I also installed a CTR lip that came w/my front end. Around that same time, I was checkin out a cool thread on city lights and decided I'd do it myself. I had a high beam bulb out, thus I never used them, so I would'nt miss not having high beams. I decided to just take a 194 socket out of a civic and trim it to fit where the bulb went in the headlight. I used a 4 led amber bulbs I bought from Discount Auto for like $10.00. Turned out real nice I think. Now jump to present time (2-22-07) That pretty much catches me up on the body work.. More to come on that in the coming weeks/months. On to my headgasket So, I took $800.00 from my tax refund and dedicated it to my car. After much deliberation and changing my mind from a complete rebuild to a JRSC, I figured I"d go w/a very mild build, including the following components: ITR Throttle cable ITR Throttle Bracket ITR 98 Spec Camshafts ITR Valve springs Int/Exh ITR CAI w/ New K&N filter ITR 4-1 polished Header Head milled so it's good a flush. Honda OEM 3 Layer Head Gasket/gasket set 1st Generation Skunk 2 Intake Manifold Fidanza Red Adjustable Cam gears Carsound high flor catalytic converter G-Reddy Exhaust w/stock GSR muffler Throttle body bypass Temperature Control Switch Custom Al. Catch can NGK Spark Plugs, indexed Chipped ECU Dyno Tuned w/Chrome So far, I've ordered: Skunk 2 Intake Manifold Gauge pod, ITR Throttle cable/bracket ITR Cams Gauges (oil,temp,volt) Temperature Control Switch Password JDM Gasket Fidanza Cam Gears I pick up the cam gears tomorrow and the gauges got to me on Tuesday. ANd I just went downstairs and picked up my Password JDM IM gasket :> My cams shoudl be here either tomorrow or next week and my IM and gauge pod will be here Monday, which means I'll be installing my gauges/pod the following weekend! Exciting stuff, for me anyway And to make it all the more exciting,this Friday (2-23-07) I'm getting Ground Control Coilovers w/KYB GR2 struts and installing them. So I'll have lots of pics of that. And SAT I'm meeting up with DoctorVtec (yet another H-T member) and I"m trading my slips for his GSR blades =) So I'll be dropped w/ new wheels (at least to me anyway) by the end of the weekend! I'll update w/pics from this weekends work. Within the next week or 2, I'm starting to work on the body, prepping for paint. I'll start with shaving the license plate holes in the front bumper. It's gonna be some exciting stuff for me! I will have my car dyno tuned and I'll be goin to the track, so I'll get vids and pics of all that. Plus, new paint, wheels.. I'll be shaving the door moldings. Good stuff! I'll detail on all the work I do as well.. Maybe it'll help somebody out one day. So you guys enjoy! I'll update this as often as I do stuff (which I'll be pretty busy in the coming weeks/months) so their will be lots of updates. And please, NO FLAMING!!!! Suggestions are welcomed, but don't go sayin I'm a retard for doing something or not doing something, please.
