    Just curious if you guys are just starting some sprintime goodies, or finishing up the old winter projects?

    Me? well my car is going into the shop this coming Monday (the 8th) to fix the booboo care of bambi and a snow bank.

    When she gets out, I'll have the Falkens mounted on the C8's and ready to go, and then the Tanabe's will be going on then too. Sorry to copy ya Eric :D But they arent the ones with the helper springs, so i didnt entirely copy you.

    And this May I'll be moving back home, home = money, money means i can finally really have some fun.

    -Chris

    Right now i dont work full time, but i will be finished school the end of May. Then the madness can begin.

    B18 rebuild and install on CRV transmission.
    CRV rear end modification ( to eliminate gay honda AWD system and lock it in)
    CRV rear end install
    Widen civic stance ( 6 in longer LCAs and UCAs etc) and retune suspension
    Custom fender flares, care of local sheet metal craftsman, for house the wider stance
    fuel Cell
    Exhaust
    Windshield
    New paint ( thinking Arctic Blue Pearl )
    Rims ( gonna buy a friends BMW rims when he gets his new ones and have them powder coated black )
    Turbocharger
    Hondata

    Needless to say, the car wont be driving for a while and it probobly will take longer then the spring season. But hey, everyone needs a hobby right.

    obd0 to obd1 conversion with hondata. dyno tuned... again, this all depends on funding. if i run into a nice summer job... a bulletproof bottom end will be in the works.

    mirage will get the finished suspension, and if money allows, the rest of the turbo parts. if not - i will be selling them for the same price i paid, and ill just buy an extreme turbo kit (fitted) for like 2500 from RPW. im hoping to get it painted in mid-april to early may....

    btw, falkens are out. es100's are in.

    I am planning on fixing my shitty job I did on the body work, and then getting the car painted and put back together. Engine wise I will be building my Y8 block either high compression or a panda motor and junkyard turbo. Then I will probably sell the car for a g35 or M3(If my business takes off).
    My truck will probably get a ladder rack :( but it should be worth it. If my truck doesn't get used for a hauler for my business then I am going to get all the chrome and body molding painted to match the body and going with 20 in Boyd Coddington Smoothie 2 or I will lift it and put 35's on it.

    clay will still be running falkens, since i "gave" him 2. :lol:

    i was convinced to buy them after doing a great deal of research, and coaxing from a few friends. so far, i found them to be the same, except they run a bit more grip in the cold, and they arent so damn loud. april 4th will tell all! :D

    my ctr swap is getting a bit of a makeover.......


    b16b block
    gsr crank
    ib rods
    ib 12.8:1 pistons
    portflow head w/springs
    JUN3 cams
    hondata s200
    rc440 injectors
    anr header

    still on winter build, cuz its still winter.......snow sucks. I have the cams, the head is at portflow, I have the crank and had it balanced and micropolished. The block is getting hot tanked and decked, honed and each piston matched to the cylinder. Couple more weeks of overtime and I'll be done.
