Updates: New look can be found on page 38-40. Making my own CYBER DC5 if you will, haha.

As it sits now

Well since I've been around forever I thought I should make an appropriate showoff thread for once. I've got tons of pictures so the thread will be updated little by little, lol. Lets take a trip back, way back...

Started off with some not so smart choices, lol


Decide to wise up a little and start saving for legit parts


Power wasn't enough so I started collecting a few things




After the install of said parts







TO be continued:thumbsup:

Life comes at you fast so I decided to pack my things and move to the good 'ole cornhusker state. And after going through three Greddy front lips in less than a year thanks to stupid Honda Techs and Alignment shops I decided it was time to change the cars look once again. I searched and searched for a look that no one in the states had yet and just as I was ready to pull the trigger on the Chargespeed Full kit, to mimic the J's Racing DC5 (at the time)


I got a glimpse of J's Racing's very own aero the Type-S kit.


Made a quick call to the guys at Bulletproof and had the first (according to them) J's Racing kit headed to the states.



This one is for you Ryder:laughing:


Again with a new look I decided it was time for some new wheels.

With the new look complete I was able to land an online feature for an up and coming Import Magazine (At the time) Yes even though I am in Nebraska, lol.







From there it was little upgrades but still enough to land me a feature in the pages of Import Tuner. Had to drive 20hrs to and from Chicago for the shoot, two tickets and one suspended license in the state of Iowa later I was rewarded with this...

Guess I should have reserved some more, lol. Oh well shortly after the shoot I noticed the car was not running at 100% anymore (probably due to the crappy fuel we have here). I noticed excessive blow by coming from the VC and a compression test confirmed my suspicion, Cylinder 4 was dead. Determined to find out how bad it was I decided to take on a rebuild project on my own and this was my findings.


Well thats no good... Tired of dealing with the issues and worries involved in running a boosted DC5, especially when there are no good k-tuners in NE, I decided to sell the turbo and build a k24 instead.



Out with the old




In with the new

Well once again I can't keep a set of wheels too long so dedided to get a set I've wanted for so long.




I also wanted to switch a few things up and make it a little cleaner so I sold the J's rear bumper and Wide Fenders and bought an 05 oem rear

Don't worry though a diffuser will eventually find its way on the rear to continue the rest of the look:thumbsup:

After nearly two years of sitting in the garage, it is back on the street.

Looks great, just got done with my k24 swap

bit of a n000b question but what is the front lip in the first pics as is like one
Greddy front lip. I loved that lip, too bad they never made one for the 05+
