    Just stopping in to say hi, been a member of the hondaswap group on myspace for awhile figured I'd finally drop by the actual site to see what it's about, didn't expect it to be another forum, but I like it. I'm also on H-t and sho.

    I drive a 2000 si, just finished my second swap on it about 2 weeks ago, swapped from the B16B to a built B18C5-R, listed below is everything that's done to it for now:

    DC sports 4-1 headers,
    APC catback exhaust system.

    If your body paint is from the factory - its not midnight blue, its Electron Blue Pearl (EBP) in the community.

    Welcome anyways

    1. If my paint job was factory I wouldn't bother listing the color and 2 I do know the difference in blue so I wouldn't make a mistake like that. A this Si factory came black

    Yep I'm still wating for her to tell me how she got that done. After the swap I was kinda hoping I had just kept my boosted B16B cause everyone I know with the ITR said they have problems with it boosted, the only way I can boost it is to swap out my rods for lower compression ones and then I can still only run 7 pounds of boost safely, so it defeats the whole purpose, but then I remembered I wanted to go all motor:p . SO unless she is sitting at some amazingly high level of boost with all the work I have done to the motor now I think I could give her some serious comp once I upgrade the rest of my fuel system, swap ecu's and add my 100 shot

    never liked altezzas, even on GMC trucks with dickheads for drivers.

    But to each his own.

    I know, most people don't like them, shit I didn't either, but for some reason I was stuck on having L.E.D taillights and they were the only company that made them for the Si, so I broke down and got them

    Agreed, but once I get my new hood and body kit she'll be getting another paint job, I'm going back black and silver marble paint job and if I still doon't like the chrome rings they came with extra rings that are paintable

    :wave:

    Welcome to HondaSwap!

    If you're able to tune for a 100 shot of juice on the ITR, you should be able to handle tuning boost on high compression too.

    Im actually a member of the no-altezza taillights foundation.. I dont rock stock tails on my si, i have 96-98 tails.. which tie in a little better with the amber side markers and my fogs.. I bought my car with altezzas.. and seriously thought about killing the kid i bought them from when he said he threw away the stocks when he got tezzas.. fuckin kids!

    Oh don't worry I still got the stock tail lights, the stock head lights, stock fenders, shit I got all the stock parts just in case someone hits me as long as it's just body damage and swap back to factory. Main reason for all the body changes I like the show look, plus my team participates in a lot of car shows. We got 2 divisions race division and a show division, and with my setup I can participate in both, plus the way I win most of my money is all the body work. Some people think it's all show, a few even call it rice, but I love my lil sleeper.

    xB's don't come with taillights. It's all aftermarket.
