    Ok, i know im looking at coilovers and Eibach springs, but what struts are those? Glad to see you're still alive. Can't wait to see what else happens.

    Those are Koni struts and pretty decent ones at that. We are glad to see some progress going into your build, the site has been dead since me and Austin have not been doing anything to our cars.

    I wonder how much that set up costs? I would like to upgrade my shocks and struts. Maybe get some strut tower braces and sway bars. LCA's and trailing arms aren't out of the question either.

    look up BWR or NRG for any good stuff, Mr. David Dang has the hook up even if he is in Vietnam he can still get you set up.

    Koni/eibach setup isn't toooo expensive and as far as bang for the buck, I'd definitely go that route over Megan racing or BWR.
    Got mine used for 250. Which is remarkable. But you can find some full setups for 400 ish used online, maybe even cheaper. But I'm not sure what they make for eclipses if anything.

    I dunno if Koni does shocks for Eclipses, but i do know Eibach does. I'll keep my eyes open.

    Thanks guys. Found an authentic mugen bumper WITH the headlight covers in pretty good condition. If the seller still has it in two weeks, I'm goin for it. Just waiting on the rest of my tax return. Also rods and bearings are going to be ordered Monday.

    250 dollar wheels for a thousand dollar motor? Not bad at all. Gonna boost the h22a1 and put it in a hatch. Might even have that done before I finish the lude hah

    That would be a nice setup in a hatch, what year are you thinking of going with?

    Was thinking h2b in an ek hatch. But an old friend I've known for many years is sellin an Integra shell for 300 bucks so I might go with that. Plus then it's easier on the tranny side of things since Integras came with b series tranny's in the first place.

    What year Integra is the shell? That would also be a good car to be putting the engine in. I have alwasy liked the integras but love my Hatch more.

    The only Integra I've ever wanted was the white one with the widebody kit and samurai on the side in Need For Speed Underground.

    Holy shit. Updates coming your guy's way. Sorry, somewhere between my other two forums I post on, instagram, Carfiend, working full time, my girlfriend moving in, and taking care of all kinds of home improvement/landscaping bullshit, I had almost forgotten about JTO.

    Unfortunately no. I did not score the bumper because the guy sold the headlight covers for 900 bucks. By themselves. Two pieces of platic, that cover headlights. For almost a thousand bucks. Jesus christ. I could still buy the bumper but then I have to source the covers and that's going to cost too much and take too long. I'll find them in a package deal again someday and I'll hop on that before it's too late.

    Now on to what's new with the lude.
    This will be copied and pasted from another forum, so some of the dialogue may not pertain. Just ignore it.

    Picked up something new yesterday. Don't know what I'm going to do with it.. for now just restore it and see what happnes..





    Did a quick polish on the box, it turned out alright, still needs some attention for sure. Haven't touched the arm yet.


    Anybody out there with this box, for the dc2, have you found anywhere that still sells replacement filters? rhdjapan doesn't have any for this particular box. I know there's K&Ns out there that fit but I'd prefer the ARC one. I think the filter is 225x165 on the top side from the edge of the rubber seal. The bottom/other side from metal to metal is 210x152.5 or somewhere close to that.

    First off, got a new honda.

    3000 original miles. No broken plastic, just some scratches. Everything works perfect. Had 5 year old gas in it and kicked over on the second kick. Only cost me 50 bucks. :thumbup:

    Got some stuff done on the car this weekend. Nothing tooooo extreme as it's still my daily...
    First thing, buddy gave me some bulbs because they didn't fit his ej7. Pretty damn bright for not being HIDs.


    Had to deal with this too.


    Pops trying to come up with a game plan to get the control arm loose. Ended up just using a basic puller. Probably the most difficult part of the day to be honest.


    After I got that taken care of, it was time to FINALLY install my god damn coilovers I got last December.


    Some random dog walked up my driveway and just sat next to my tool box for a good solid twenty minutes before he got bored and decided to explore the shop. Still don't know who's dog it was.. kicked it for a minute, bounced, never saw him again.


    Got em in, set the daily driving ride height, went home and got smashed.


    Had to use the stock bumpstops because the koni/eibach setup didnt come with any. Might shave them down a little bit, but I can't afford to go any lower right now anyways so I'm not too worried about it at the moment.

    No more fisting. :thumbup:


    Don't mind the girlfriend's prius.


    Here's a before and after..





    Well I've finally figured out what my plans are. I'm going to rebuild the jdm h22a to stock specs, and swap it into my prelude. Shave the bay, paint and body work, my arc intake box, and a few other aesthetic pieces. Logic tri-y header, probably a random exhaust. Call it good.
    Picked up something I'll be using on another project today.

    h22a1 head with Skunk2 retainers, b-h spring base kit, and valve springs. Plus the complete head. Saved over 700 dollars on parts I had already planned on buying, and got another spare head out of it. Not bad.



    Also picked this up, again something I had already planned on buying for an h2b drag build, bought the head, got this for free. :thumbup:


    This is the contents of my room. Girlfriend's starting to get irritated.. hahaha.


    One car, two complete motors, two spare/complete heads, I don't even know how this happened.
    More to come.

    That should bring you guys up to speed. Like I said, some of the dialogue like the questions and the dates, obviously don't pertain to this thread.

    Haven't picked up the shell yet, but it's not going anywhere so I'm not worried about it.

    Parts to buy for the h2b integra build:
    skunk2 pro 3 camshafts.
    Either stock valves, or ferrea oversized valves.
    KS Tuned manual timing tensioner and balance shaft delete/oil pump combo.
    OEM parts like water pump and other little things.
    Connecting rods.
    Bearings.
    Hondata s300.
    Fuel setup. (injectors, pump, lines, etc)
    Turbo setup. (Turbo, piping, IC, BOV, Wastegate)
    Mounts.
    That's all I can think of off the top of my head besides little things that won't really matter. Once I get more stuff for the Integra and get the shell to my shop, I'll probably start a new thread for that build.

    Holy hell man, I thought you'd forgotten about us and dropped off the face if the earth. Looks like you've been busy. So have Sarah and I. We just moved to Texas son I can go to school to be a Porsche technician, are currently thinking about moving to Galveston, though I want to try it first and see if its something I want to do, and waiting for the funds to fix the Eclipse. Good to see an update!

    Thanks man. I'm stoked to finally be actually getting somewhere. By February I'll have the motor completely built. Sleeved block, 12:1 comp pistons with a thicker head gasket to reduce the compression a little bit, E85 race gas, .62 trim turbo on 30-40 pounds. Hoping for at least 600 horses to the wheels. That's being conservative so I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up being higher. 
    I'm getting anxious, it's all I can think about. Funds are the only thing holding me back at this point.

    Lol. I know all too well about funds. My car is still sitting. II'm hoping for a modest 225 HP until I get the Evo VIII front clip. That engine I'll aim for 500 AWHP.

    looking good, glad to see some updates. I love how both of you want high horsepower numbers and I'm happy with my roughly 140-150 setup lol. I'm not looking to make my car go faster and I am definitely not looking at drag racing, if anything I would love to get into some circuit racing but will need a different car for that and then I will have the desire for more power but I think I would be happy staying under 300 and staying NA.
