To be honest i just now realized these kind of threads had their own little section, so i figured why not make my own build-up thread since i pretty much work for my car and order something new every week lol. ill give you guys a short story about my hatchie, bought it january 25th, 2008 as a shell from philly. the car needed some TLC but that was quickly taken care of. since ive had it, its been through 3 different swaps and 4 different trannys. gone through a couple sets of wheels, and so many other things. i put every piece of this car together myself, and damn proud of it.

one day i hope to have it in a magazine or something, but i think for only being 20 im off to a good start and younger than most of the guys who have baller cars haha


the day i picked it up:

well i actually have the cf hood on right now. but every now and then i switch back to the oem hood with oem hood bra, which i kinda like better, but at the same time i love how the cf looks..ah idk man tough decision for me. spoon mirrors will be coming very soon...well hopefully within the next month or so..

NFR_AP2
03-09-2009, 11:04 PM
there are 2 looks that are kinda influencing my direction with this car:

first is the typical white hatch, spooned out:

VTi cluster ftw and paint your door handles...

i actually compared that VTI cluster to the em1 cluster. it seems to me that the vti is the boring version of the em1 cluster haha. IMO. i think im gonna try to pick up an em1 cluster instead...plus they are cheaper.

as for the door handles when i got the car those were the only thing UN-painted. kinda weird huh? besides the license plate garnish in the rear. once the car gets painted itll be alllll red!

NFR_AP2
03-16-2009, 04:56 PM

yeah as far as the exhaust goes the only thing im going to have to do is cut off the end where it bolts to the cat cause its a 2-bolt flange. im going to have to get the 3 bolt flange welded to it...

Road Pirate
03-25-2009, 12:06 AM
I have everything but my damn wastegate! It hasnt even shipped from Tial yet, so I'm getting kinda angry...but if its here by the end of the week, it will be boosted this weekend, if not, next weekend. It should be fun.

and yeah man, the torque plus the boost is a hell of a lot of fun :)

NFR_AP2
03-25-2009, 12:08 AM
maybe one day ill put like 6-7 pounds on the B16A. i think that would be pretty fun and fulfilling in the hatch...are you going stock internals?

Road Pirate
03-25-2009, 12:11 AM
Yeah man you should! Just make sure you get it tuned. Tuning is a MUST!

Yeah I'll be running stock internals for awhile, but I will be replacing my rings, bearings, headgasket, and upgrading to ARP headstuds next week. I dont want my head to lift, and rings to go out haha.

NFR_AP2
03-25-2009, 12:14 AM
thats awesome man...i remember when i used to have my coupe...i had the single cam turbo thing goin on. that was pretty fun i miss it actually. i was just running stock internals on that too on 7 lbs. ive been thinking about going boost again, but im still trying to decide a good size turbo for just 6-7 lbs on my motor, maybe the t3/t4? i need to research lol

Road Pirate
03-25-2009, 12:31 AM
Yeah for sure. The whole reason why I'm going back to boost is cause I had a built and boosted Y8 haha.

My turbo is a .48 trim T3, VERY small, but it will spool quick which is what I want.

A T3/T4 would be good if you want more top end :)

Very nice my friend! Tow hook looks great. :thumbs up

yeah dude im likin it alot! i remember back in the summer i had to get my car towed once...oh man i had to fix it, but when it was being pulled up the truck it broke a tab off my lip :( i was sad...so now i dont have to worry about that!

I like the tow hook. Is the bay going to be painted red too?

thanks man, and probably not.

i was originally going to paint the car white, so when i swapped, i painted the bay black. and i kinda like it black because its a nice contrast with the accents of the bay...having the bay red would be too much red on my car imo, but then again, you can never have enough red :)

i think it would look a lot better with a matched hood and matched/different mirrors.

and i think that normal white foglights would look better, and dare i say color matched bezels? i usually hate those but i think with clear lenses they would look good on your car.

I asked highway-star too but how hard was the install for the rear fog? Did you buy the one from jdmland? How much did you have to drill into the rear beam support? Pics would be more awesome than a description.

yeah si cluster replaced the el cluster...it was getting a pain everyone always thought i was speeding lol...i love the colors of the si cluster better..just how it looks overall. the rear fog was pretty simple actually...i took off the metal bumper tho. i actually found it on ebay. come guy from some random country was selling it lol i will get pics and a better description soon.

not doggin on your style, cuz the car looks rockin, but i just know we differ in a few minute areas of styling...

Looks nice..ballin interior!!did the climate controls take the 2 si neo wedge bulbs because from what I have heard the 98 climate controls take 2 #74 bulbs..I wana do it but I have to be complety sure of what im doing..and as far as recomendations would be get the mirrors but nothing knock off or just color match the stock mirrors..also a ctr wheel would look awsome in your black interior amber gauges and ctr carpet but you can't go wrong with the spoon wheel.

what i did...is buy the 99-00 climate control bulbs, and just take the amber condom off the bulb and place it on the bulbs in your 96-98 climate control :)

plus it matches my cluster perfectly :)

yeah if i dont get this spoon wheel tomorrow then ill probably look for a SRS EK9 wheel. who knows...im hoping for the spoon wheel though
