View Full Version : my eg8 the start of my build

12-22-2009, 10:15 PM
i know it looks like crap at the moment but it did look good until last winter when i decided to meet a pole up close and personal i will mark out the damage created by the accident. but this is my start.

1995 EG8
aftermarket cam (came with the car)
short ram intake
2.25" custom fabracated exhaust
skunk 2 coil overs
chiped ecu (cant remember what brand but i think spoon)
short throw shifter (custom made)
and a few other mods
7400 rpm redline

front end you can see the body work were i fixed the hood that was dented in when i bought the car
using a soda can to show how low the car is
custom vented hood with hood pins
my rims lol not really trying to get a set of white 17s not sure what brand but im working towards it now
an old guy slid threw the stop sign and hit me i have since pulled this out so it looks decent
you can see were the fiber glass is cracked here from the hit that i took on the other side
here you can see were i hit the pole on the top part of the rear quarter (i never fixed the lower hole)
138whp d15b7
my dash i have moved my tach since this picture was taken

well this is were i am at so far hopfully this spring i will get all the body panels done and send it off to paint. will be done a candy pearl electric blue with white rims and mesh.

holy cow...

that thing is haggard no offense...

looks like she needs some tlc.

what are ur plans?

and u should buy my wheels, they would look killer on ur car..

^So desperate to sell.

i would think about it but i just got the car back from the impound lot and they screwed it all up so im trying to get it running correctly at the moment. do you know anyone that has a fast idle valve i need one its the last thing to fix left.

anyways i havent decided the body kit im going with but i do want to do a wide body ( i might custom make my own) set of white rims and new rear quarters. then its off to paint. going to possible do a right hand drive conversion found the parts for it for $430 not including shiping. and im kinda stuck on the 1.5 motor staying in my car. im not positive but i think if i do a swap im going to go with an actual jdm motor probably a h22 with b18 trans. but thats along way down the road

do ur research man...

12-22-2009, 11:46 PM
looks like a rough start man but anyways good luck with the build

looks like you've really got a lot of work on your hands. Why did you fiber glass the trim openings? you should take all that out and get some thing moldings....they'd look way better.
Also don't go 17's, first off, they look like crap on eg's, second, you'll most likely rub since your already really low. biggest I'd go is 16, but a 15 would probably look better.
post pics as you go.

12-23-2009, 12:17 AM
oh, and save your money on the body kit and put it towards a swap. and I don't think you can use a b18 trans on a h22 motor. correct me if I'm wrong anyone?

12-23-2009, 12:57 AM
they make a conversion plate for an h to b swap plus i can get body kits really really cheap. i have a conection with a warehouse. im going to raise the car up a bit for the 17s

You have a ton to do but good luck... IMO I would ditch the wing and the hood, get a stock hood or a Carbon hood... GL
