i am finally a Owner of my dream car at such a young age! i have been drooling all over my baby ever since i picked her up and have done plenty of work on her since i bought her. for starters

Base Rsx 05'

Mods: BC racing Sport coilovers
2 12in JBL subs followed by 1000 JBL amp
(just installed the Injen IS Series SRI today)

The rest of the car is stock and i do have plans to fix her up nicely. let me make a note as of what i have done to her in the past 3 weeks.

i went to a local junk yard that had a type s and pulled everything interior wise black out of it and made a swap into my baby (yes i did a Dash swap took me a few days but was well worth). ill post pictures in a little bit. i also bought SMD LED interior lighting kit, Type R wing, Injen IS Series SRI, Type R rims.

as for my plans for my car in the future i am wanting to Swap to a k20a and go turbo. all my friends tell me a k20a is like the most expensive to turbo, which i can understand so its a debate between that and k20a2.

Word of advice do not let your friends, your girlfriend or anyone borrow your car. I don't care how much you trust them if you let them take your car for a drive by themselves they will get the urge to redline it and possibly misshift or do something stupid to mess up your motor. I just got done paying $1700 to get my top end done valves, head, even a new starter because my cylinders had compression issues. 2005 Type S
