yes i know that, i have an extra bumper with a lip and ek fogs on it but chose not to go with it because the car is to clean for cheap parts ..... i mean .... why purchase top parts and then get cheap replica parts to also make it look good. here are the extra parts. thats why i'm going with 2 c/f lips .... mugen & spoon lips from seibon

the car is not currently running yet because my new valve car is being made, if you look closely on my valve cover ..... 1 of the feed lines is sitting right on top of my turbo manifold. and i'm still trying to figure out on what kind of seats to go with ..... either Bride in red or Seibon

this is all i have for interior shots, my mechanics still hasn't had time to install my steering wheel but .... here are the pics ..

3 people have them, now all of the sudden EVERYONE has them?? Everyone has TE37's but that doesnt stop people from getting them.


The wheels look fucking sick. Who gives a fuck if 36 people have them, they look good. Theyre also really respectable.




Oh, and you have absolutely NO idea how much respect I have for you at the moment. I have never seen a car that bad turn into something so good.

well ................ turns out that i will need a new head, new camshafts, ........ basically some new internals for the head. Since that happened and basically i'm doing another build, some things are going to be up for sale.

NOW, please keep in mind that these items are brand new (SiR gauge was bought from Marcio "bloody hatch"), were installed in the vehicle, & was actually put to use for 2 weeks !!! when i mean 2 weeks ...... i mean like 2 hours a day for those 2 weeks, which means not that long.

Hondata S300 - $500
boost gauge - $50 (autometer, glows red)
water gauge - $50 (autometer, glows red)
volt gauge - $50 (autometer, glows red)
oil pressure gauge - $50 (autometer, glows red)
wideband - $175
SiR gauge - $???
