History
Just brought it home today, haven't even looked to see what's on it. The guy I bought it from (local guy that runs a junkyard and works solely on hondas) said it was brought to him with low compression. The guy didn't want to pay what it cost to repair it, so he traded this and some cash for a teg the guy had available. A few days later, a stock 02 RSX came in smashed in the front end beyond repair. He pulled the K20 out of that one, and dropped it in this one. Threw it up on craigslist for 3k, and a couple hours later I was on the phone with him.

The body has 144k miles on it, but the motor he pulled only had 84k. It is so much fun to drive. Suspension's a little stiff and bouncy, wheels scrape the wheel well on bumpy turns, and there's some wheel camber at play, both front and back, but those aren't insurmountable issues. Going to adjust the suspension up an inch, and see where that leaves me. Even with that though, the car is a blast. I've wanted one of these since I played Need for Speed Underground.

I picked it up at 5pm... I just got home, and it's 2am. I've been driving it the whole time...
