    Well this is my Del Sol w/ a GSR swap. I figured I'd post up some pics to see what you guys thought. I have Tien springs to go under it when I get a camber kit and the time to do it. I'm also polishing a valve cover and I have a blue aluminum spark plug cover and I'll put on NGK wires so it will match. I also eventually want to get a good qaulity carbon fiber hood to replace the crappy painted one that's on it. Ive been thinking of getting a small spoiler, something low and sleek like the Mugen style. I don't want anything real flashy or big. Well anyway give me some feedback guys. No flames please.

    looks clean. what are you going to do about the hood? If you put the tien springs on it and it dont lower it more than like 1.75 or so you dont really need a camber kit. Hows your gsr pull?

    I'm probably going with a carbon fiber hood. Not a cheap one but a nice one with the frame that doesn't have to be pinned down. My car pulls ok I guess. I'm used to fast cars. Throughout my childhood I rode in some nasty cars that my family members had. A few built mustangs, 35psi Grand National, a chipped 98 WS6 Trans Am with about 400hp. So all though I love my little car, it doesn't give me the thrill that I grew up with. Compared to the only other Honda Ive driven which is an S2000 it's not fast at all. But it's faster than my old fox body 5.0 that had high flow headers, X-pipe w/out cats and flowmasters. When I get out of school I'm either going to pour money into this car or get something else. If I keep it I'll either keep the B18C1 and build up all the internals and boost it or I might get a Type R.

    White always looks great when the car is clean. The grey probably wont show dirt as bad. My car was filthy when I took those pic's :D
