Hey guys,
Already know a few of you from the blackberry group and had some trouble activating my account so this intro could have been up here a few days ago but its figured out thanks to Jay Jay and here I am.

I'm not too new to the Honda scene, had a '92 prelude before that I kept for a couple years. Didn't do anything nutty on it. It was the H23 with 4wheel steering model so we got rid of that engine and threw in a JDM H22 maintaining the h23 tranny with plans boost but that all fell through and I sold it with a couple problems I couldn't be bothered to fix.

Spent most of the summer looking at cars so I got this near the end of August and it was back to school in Sept so I didn't have much time to do anything to it.

I felt pretty accomplished though getting coilovers (T1R) on it within 24 hours of ownership, and then exhaust (T1R), intake, HID's and VAFC2 in there over the next week. Lastly, a friend has some te37's he was selling so i picked those up and managed to make it look decent for school :cool:.

I plan on boosting in the spring/summer. Haven't had a boosted car before so I will see how i like that and if not, I will probably swap in an H22 or something.

Enjoy.
and check out my blog photos: http://smaggs.blogspot.com/
reminds me that i still need some decent shots of my own car. will have to wait till spring since winter wheels are on already
