Thanks all!! I have finally been blessed with a garage and a strong daily driver so I can eventually go to town on this car. First, taking care of some debts but will be doing a few things here and there, mostly powdercoating and freshening up some stuff. Once my bills are gone though it will be time for some major mods!! Could be next year but I will get there!

damn, looks good. abp crew holla

looks good man, I like how u put ur stuff to work!!!
that's what it's for!!!

just wondering, I/E type R cams & IM + kpro only making 208whp? it for some reasons seems kinda low? Perhaps a race header would give you that 10-15+ hp?
Yea, it kind of dies on the top end and just wants to breathe more. Unfortunately, the dyno I used is no longer around so I need to redyno before I put the mugen header on to get an accurate baseline. But the cams, intake manifold, and tuning really opened up the top end. From 6000 to 8800 it sure is a blast. I'm hoping the header will pull up the mid range numbers a bit though because that's where I need it on the courses.

Very nice, how much was the respray?
Generally, I get the front bumper resprayed for around 350-400. I did the mirrors and sides once also. With 126,000 miles I going to need a full repaint sooner than later.

Your trunk is very nice, did you custom make those side molding/panels?
A shop in Richmond VA took care of that but then promptly went out of business. I had to remake the amp rack due to water leaking in from the tail light gaskets and I took a lot of pictures to show how it was built. I shared that info on clubrsx somewhere for those that were interested.

Love the Blue Recaros
dang, nice car man. You got some clean parts. Any plans for a header soon and re tune? You'd make good power, and since you already have kpro, could be worth the trouble really
thats a lot of blue!! but deffinitly clean
Wow looking nice! I agree with the other, a good RH will surely open her up!
Looks good man! Good job on the car. Did you notice a big increase in getting ITR cams or not really?
very nice. at first when i saw your second picture i thought you had a roof scoop. i was about to be like wtf lol
damn that is pretty nice, lovin it a lot
Damn, that looks really good :thumbsup:
