ef9 love (my project car) 56k maybe

i bought this for 300 bucks. im building it up for auto x and drag. im doing a ls/vtec swap in it with hopefully a b16 tranny currently i have a b18b1 block with type r pistons (can u say high compression N/A screamer?) well onto the pics











any thoughts opinions comments critiques what ever lets hear em
the whole reason behind this project is b/c K20's are jsut to damn expensive
project poor man heh trying to do this for under 1500 bucks but ill prolly spend alot more lol oh yeah her name is claire lol

oh yeah for looks wise. she is being treated to a fresh coat of flat black b4 it hits the roads. some rota slips for my street tires and some dark tint. maybe some jdm goodies if i can get my hands on some

B20 is a hard swap for a EF, your much better off with the ls/vtec or B18. Fast as hell all motor

I had one of those with a d16z6 with wiseco 20 over pistons, eagle rods, comp stage 2 cam....and t3 60/48. It was alot of fun building up the motor and putting it all together....someone offered me 2000 for all of it before i got to drive it so i took and now im turboing the 04 in stead.

strip it, give it a nice paint job(dont go too wild, keep it clean), and put the ls in it. and like u said do the suspension.

tricky is on a distinguished road
nice, i'm in the same boat as you, for the amount people spend on a stock k20 swap or turbo, you can get a pretty nice EF outta the deal with a built engine and suspension...i got an EF also (crx though) I would try and turn into this:

do type r bottom end, with civic type r cylinder head, it ups the compression compared to a stock itr and has a slightly better valvetrain. these are things ive heard mwhaaha
but ye its true. and good luck, i wanted to do this same project pretty much but i have no use for it. and you may want to look more into what your doing with it, building a car for autox and building a drag car is not the same.

CTR head is not as good as a ITR head. i saw that documentary on type R cars from honda. it was talking about when you get a CTR and you rebuild the motor, there is a kit that will let you convert it into a ITR motor instead. so i figure ITR>CTR

to make it run great and look good your budget is gonna hafta be more than 1500---i'd say go w/ the ls/vtec swap. do a minor build. work on the paint and interior and get some nice rims. good luck with whatever you do man.

or just go for this look
