    so my 97 integra got stolen... a month ago tomorrow...:mad: i built it over the last six years.. so it's taken a pretty emotional toll on me...:( i had that car thru the good and the bad.. drove both my kids home from the hospital in it.. and now its gone.. there have been alot of cars stolen with tow trucks in this area.. so no matter how many kill switches i put on it... they still managed to take it away from me... so now the wife is getting either a honda pilot or acura mdx.. and im bieng handed down her 2001 integra... its automatic... and completely bone stock... so i will take pictures of what im starting out with, and over time, build her up... plans are to swap in a jdm b20, 98 spec itr trans, itr suspension, replace all the suspension bushings with polyeurethane bushings, and pretty much see where this one goes... pics will be up soon!!!

    Is an ITR tranny really the best choice for a B20?

    Anyhoo, sorry about the loss man. That sucks bad...

    the type r trans worked pretty decent in the one that was stolen... suggestions as far as transmissions go??? and as far as the documented part goes, i never bothered to really take any pictures of my progress with the last one... ill see if i can dig some up of it, and take pics of this new build... its kinda bittersweet really... even the wife misses it... and i thought she didnt like it!!she is ecouraging me to fix hers up... im even considering the jdm front end on this one... and paint!

    also forgot to mention that i will supercharge the b20... eventually... im the one that usually goes against the grain and neber goes the vtec route, wants to supercharge a non vtec engine... on purpose... lol

    I couldn't imagine how violated you feel :/ but glad to see you're pushing on. I know I freaked the fuck out when I DREAMT that someone stole my rat ass sportster. Couldn't imagine not waking up from that... But eager to watch the build.

    I'm pretty sure we have mutual feelings on Integras being lost... Its hard to get over it. I had my Integra as a background on my iPod, phone and computer. Plus I had the corpse in my front yard. For me I pretty well had to mentally block it out and move on to the next project.

    Can we see some pictures? :)

    IMO, a GSR tranny would be more suitable for a supercharged b20

    The B20 is a little bit more "torquey" than the VTEC B-series engines. If you don't plan on investing heavily in suspension/tranny mods for traction purposes, than a GS-R tranny would probably be best, especially if you plan on going boosted. Cheaper too!

    I've never actually had a car stolen, but I've had several attempts, and they always trashed the car in the process. It's a horrible, horrible feeling to wake up to. You feel so violated...

    yea.. the way i found out was attempting to swap cars with my wife's before i went on a small road trip... because i hated driving her car... anyways... got to my house... and there was no car to swap... dammit... to be honest.. i feel like one of my best friends is missing... and there is nothing i can do about it... i taught my son how to steer ( too short to drive) in that car... i taught him how to wrench in that car... i just want closure man.. i want to know what hapenned to it... i hat this shit. i work at a midas in a shitty area of shitcago and have to watch coutless cars get towed by here that have been stripped... anyways.. pics of my inherited autotragic dc4 integra coming up this afternoon...

    thanks on the tip for the gsr tranny!!! ive seen a few online, some of them came lsd equipped, right?

    sad intro Man...I hope you get over it.

    When my crx got stolen, I immidiately called my friend who was an x-auto theft himself. He found the car before it was strip down. Let everyone know not to fuck with this rex, I never ask which punk stole it. I never had any problem after that one incedent.

    .........just moved on to the next swap...
