First things first!
ALARM!! Going directly after class.
Then full tune up, fluid change, gasket changes, and of course fix the valve cover stud thats broken.
Change to synthetic.
Sea-foam then change to 93.

Fun:
1. 5-point harness to go with my bride seat.
2. Removable steering wheel for added security.
3. Wash buff and wax.

Tomorrow will be a busy busy day. Pictures will be coming soon!!!

right now im just getting the motor completely tuned up and cleaned up and running in top shape. did a full fluid and gasket tune up today. changed EVERY gasket and all fluids. have to drive like a b***h for a week until its all broken in but man im loving it so far. Plans are to have an N/A monster. id like to boost it but i like the sound/idea of an N/A b16. So far ive spanked a coupe with a euro f20b, a 5 series bmw andddd idk what else lol. Next things coming up are a new windshield, 4 or 5 point harness, quick release steering wheel, aaaannd LOWWWWWWWWWWW >=)

What exactly is a "gasket tune up"? And you said you were changing the head gasket?

yeehhh. hes thinking about selling/trading. sitting on steelies now. i gotta get my windshield fixed ASAP.. :( question, crx SI disc brakes in the rear or 99-00 si brakes in the rear? i was assuming that the CRX ones would have the proper trailing arms etc but im not 100%. gonna be cleaning the car up tomorrow, little TLC. Ordering a steering wheel and a harness soon. Can i get the bar that goes across the B pillar for the seat belts off ebay?

I promise the hand pocket in the door panel is a much better spot for your cell phone! It was almost like Honda made them just for cell phones ;) Looks like a really straight car though, and already has a B16 swap in it! Good luck with it! I see a lot of potential with this car! =)

If you go with CRX disc brakes, its a complete 100% bolt on swap. The rear disc's from the EM1 will bolt on, but you will get some goofy tire wear. The best thing you could do if you went that route is have the 99-00 discs pressed into your stock rear trailing arms.
