    Ok well I figured since I never did one of these things Id do one now as I near the end of my build

    What I started off with was a 1992 Acura Integra RS Stock B18 with 147k on the Motor. Front end Damage but ran like a champ. Lowered on Cut Springs with stock struts, Had a cat delete and had flat black 15†Rota Slipstreams (Beat and shitty painted) And an Alpine Cd player. I bought it for $1600

    The first thing I did after I got home was put new hood/fenders on. Then I decided to check out the tires since the car saw so low the outside of them looked almost brand new but what I didn’t see was the camber wear.
    So I got online ordered new suspension and tires. I got… Tokico HP struts, Tein S. Tech Springs, Revo Front camber Kit, and a blox rear camber kit. That made the car have a lot more solid ride and it took care of my camber wear. I picked up a set of 205-50-15 Falken 912 tires. Cheap tires at about $55 each but yet they are real nice. I blasted the wheels and repainted them bronze so things were starting to shape up quickly.

    The next thing that I wanted to touch was the exhaust…I was kind of against being like everyone else and buying a pre-made exhaust, I wanted to be creative and have my own sound. Nothing to loud just something to let people know whats up. I did some research and put together what I thought would be a nice setup… Polished 2 3/8†DNX midpipes with a cat delete then from the axle back I had the muffler shop make me the bends I needed with some 2 1/2†piping and I went with a Borla XR-1 muffler. People say Borla on a Honda? I didn’t use any clamps all welded to assure no leaks. But wow it’s the exact sound I wanted and its original and looks great to. Oh and it only cost me about 325$ vs $500 for a premade kit.
    While I had the exhaust off I went ahead and through in a B&M short throw shifter.
    I put a cold air intake on and that was it before I decided it was motor building time…
    Now the car is in the garage where its been for a few months now and I redid all the body work and am getting ready to spray it this weekend. I cleaned up everything on the car and am trying to make it look brand new again.

    The motor now is ungodly tasty… It’s almost done just hanging out on an engine stand but this is what it consists of as it sits right now…
    B18A1 bottom end bored to 81.5mm
    Wiseco 9.5:1 Pistons
    Eagle H Beam Rods
    Polished Crank
    ACL Bearings
    ARP Rod Bolts
    DIY Block Filler
    ITR Head (hot tanked and fresh as hell)
    JDM ITR cams
    Skunk 2 Intake Manifold
    ACL Complete Gasket Kit
    Fidanza Flywheel
    DC Sports 1 Piece Headers
    LS Vtec Kit

    I will keep you posted as I finish up and I’ll for sure get some more pics but this was just to get it going for now… and I’m bored at work so that always helps

    I think it's about $3.50/ can for spray paint. :D

    Maybe it's the camera you used but it looks like you rattle canned it, get some better pics so we can get a better idea of what it looks like.

    good, it must be you're phone then, unless above the rear wheel is overspray. I know there's sunlight hitting it but it still looks like overspray.
