heres one of the earliest pictures I still have of the car



and the unmolested engine bay



After around a year into having my car and we were on our way to my first major car show with it in Charlotte NC for the Summer Import Alliance. All i had at the time was a race header, aspec front, yellow fogs, lowering springs and i painted the wheels a different color. Was a great time until about 2:00 am saturday night after hanging with some RSX guys when this happened :firemad:




Drunk lady in a Navigator went down the wrong way on a one way street into the parking lot where we were about to head back to our hotel. She was like a damn heat seaking missile, and of course drove away but later was found. The shop that did the work did an great job and replaced everything with OEM parts. So after a month of the car getting fixed in NC i flew back out there and took the 16 hour drive back home.

After that whole disaster I came across a friend selling his JRSC kit and I just couldn't pass it up.






Ended up with 283 hp and 180 tq at around 8 psi
After that I wanted to make the engine bay and exterior look more respectable so I started to paint an tuck things where I could and install new wheels and a full aspec lower spoilers.













I loved the power and everything but everyone knows there's never enough, so i collected a nice pile of parts to put on this year and i finally got it all in there. very happy with the way it looks. More updates and better quality pictures to come in spring putting her away for the year :thumbsup:

Car looks good and clean. Looks like you had a CAI and then in the last few pics switched to a custom CAI? How do they compare? I always wanted to make some sort of custom intake instead of buying one.

Very clean man- I like it. You wouldn't have any pics close up of that Merc racing belt tensioner? I'd like to see how close it sits to the fuel rail- I'm considering one myself

New update! got the car back this spring and went straight to work! i spent a week or two chasing down a wondering idle took the whole setup apart made all new gaskets and used a quite a bit of hondabond to be 100% sure of no vac leaks. Cleaned the IAC changed the plugs was better but still not where i wanted it to be, ended up being in the base tune i was running along with the fact I'm running a 74mm HR TB which sometimes doesn't seal the best. Aslo with the blower producing more heat might as well upgrade the radiator with a mishimoto radiator while it was all torn apart.








Then finally got it tuned at West Bend Dyno in WI



Heres one of the WOT dyno pulls :vtec:

Ended up with 314hp and 214 tq @9.5psi on a mustang dyno, could have gotten more with a larger exhaust but at least I can hear the radio now :rotfl:
