Default My '89 Si Hatch

This is my car from beginning to now.

[IMG][/IMG]
plain jane.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]
Painted the steelies, got a rack from a friend. The rack is now destickered.

[IMG][/IMG]
Some HID's for some better lighting.

[IMG][/IMG]
Painted the wheels again, Pin stripped the Side molding for the SiR look.

Plans for the car
I've got a ZCwith a Z6 head waiting for winter to get over to drop in, hope to boost it by summer.
Get skunk 2 coils.
JDM conversion Bumbers and panels.
Wheels still unsure of at the moment.
Corbeau Racing seats.
Spoon rep mirrors in the mail.
Carbon fiber hood and hatch.


Car is stripped. I'll get interior pics up soon.
That's pretty much it.

Well if by "potential" you are talking about by tracking the car, I am in fact doing that as well. Well autocross anyways. I know these cars are made for handling amazingly I test that out almost every weekend. Ha

If you're thinking about autoxing this thing, the worst you can do is mess with the motor and/or boost it and forget about Skunk2 suspension. No need for carbon fiber stuff either...

Well, I'm using it as a daily driver as well, I've been hunting down suspension for awhile, I've heard a lot of good things about Koni shocks. I know that will be the main focus on the street touring part of it. motor wise, I've only got a d15 in it now, non Vtec which I run pretty quick runs on the courses but I just think a little "umph" will help me shave some seconds. I know street touring wise Power is not everything it's definitely brakes and suspension. so I'll check out the info you sent me. Not a lot on my list up there is rock solid plans. except for the JDM conversions, I think they just look better.

I thought I remembered the car.
Why not just update your original thread from before in the 4th gen forum?

I would have mounted the fogs further apart, but I didn't have a drill for the bumper support and there wasn't enough extra plastic to screw into on the inside of the outer part of the bumper, if that makes sense hah.

I thought it deleted my original thread so I started a new one.

yeah that makes sense, i had the same issue when i did WRC style fogs on my 94 Celica i use to hav, so i ended up just making a bar to mount them all to then installing that behind the bumper (took bumper off, mounted it, put bumper back on)

im thinking about starting a build thread here in a few minutes sense i havent started one, i just havent messed with my interior yet, cause its too windy out there.
