Doing some work on the RSX finally. Been a long planned project and just getting started. First thing pulled the motor. Head is getting swapped. Oiling system is being revamped. Lots to do. More stuff to acquire. Needs a deep cleaning too lol

Pulled radiator, koyo unit is replacing it. Easier to access the supercharger too.

Supercharger off

Motor/trans dropped

Have all new mount bushings provided by Innovative several years ago. Going to a harder duro. The rear mount shown below, completely fkd

Cams and rocker assy removed

Bottom end oil stuff removed. Stock A2/Z1 -S pump clearanced for k24 and a circuit hero oil pan baffle. If anyone wants these items PM me I'll cut you a great deal. Have a Hytech ported pump and Hytech baffle replacing these items.

while the motor is getting built i sent the s/c out to stiegemeier for a rebuild and got it back the other day. he threw in his 'constrictor grip' pulley mod, basically sandblasted the ribs. refinished the pulley for me too. none of these things i asked for. return customer perks perhaps? lol may be parting with this setup, really want to go tvs... one day



Some more M3 content. Had the front and rear bumpers resprayed, deleted the front reflectors, looks much cleaner. Added a carbon lip. Took some pics downtown.

My motor from 4Piston should be arriving soon. Not sure when the RSX will be back up... For now, more M3 content...

Picked up a Harrop SC 2 weeks ago from a guy in Georgia. Only positive displacement charger for these cars, zero interest in centrifugal setups. Twinscrew TVS1740, aftercooled, everything looks clean OEM fit and finish when done, huge selling point for me. These literally never show up used so the price was right and I had to get it. Started installing it the same day car was up the next day, couldn't hold off...
