    since this is the place people are posting builds ill post here and close my old thread.
    sooo i have been around here gathering info and lurking around. i decided to post up what i have been up to.
    some history.
    i bought this car about 5 years ago for 1k from my dads friend.
    i basically grew up with this car because he was around alot. he was the only owner. so when i got it. i started having fun.

    started off like some of us. a ricer. but not too much. i quickly got into the modding game. instead of just looks. (which i lacked lol) and joined a bunch of forums, which got me out of my ricer phase. okok enough talk here she is.

    when i first got her i put 96 ex stock rims on as soon as i got it

    after that i slid in the rain under a blazer crunchin up my hood so i had to get a new one and i couldn't afford a CF hood at the time so.... primer it is.

    after a while 90hp gets alittle boring so i needed a bigger engine so i bought this 90 acura integra ls for parts

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    so i started ripping it apart oct 13 2003 it took me a couple weeks because i had to wait to borrow a lift from my friend finally everything is switched

    [​IMG]


    i luckily blew the trans in my 1.5 a week before i started the swap, good timing
    [​IMG]



    this is my 1.5 sohc in the acura just resting in there not installed

    OK so now is about the break in my project where i gave up on the wiring. joined the air force and forgot about it while living in TX. so about June 20th i decided to finish. but at my house instead of my other garage at a rental property across town. so here is where that started off. prepping for tow.

    head gasket time :(
    at this point i thought that my old habits as a mechanic where alittle shitty and that i would be more comfortable re doing it from scratch with a fresh gasketed motor. now with more knowledge i was ready. first no more ac.

    i guess i can thank Andrew for giving me the idea to go here. i didn't know places like this existed until i read his thread. only downside is that its 2hrs and 30 min away.. oh well it was fun.

    BTW my exhaust is hooked up now too. sounds OK. still needs to be tweaked.


    more to come.

    Looking Good.

    If your going to use your old headers, I would recommend painting them with High Temp White paint. It will look good when you match it to your clean engine.

    i was going to paint them.... but i decided against it because in the spring when I'm ready to finish it I'm planning on headers. i was going to paint it black to contrast the alum paint but I'm leaving them RUST color until spring and i guess ill decide then...
