my project for 2007

ive built a few different hondas over the years and i finally came across a car ive been waiting for. its a little rough right now, but hopefully after about a year and 20 grand or so she'll be shinin like a new penny. heres a few pics of her. the last pic will show what happens when you back your em2 into a mazda b2000 while youre drunk. mind you i just got the car out of the paint shop a month ago gettin a new rear bumper and paint work because someone rearended me.

You def shouldnt be driving when your drunk... you didnt buy that car when your were drunk did you? ha.. nah, I like the dented panels and the foot prints on your hood.

Nah though, i'm sure you'll clean it up real nice. Hopefully do a custom interior kuz that looks like ****... I see potential. What plans you got in store for it?

boosted poor mans type r for power. youre supposed to build it with a b18c1 block, but im going to attempt it with the b18a1 ive got since i have two blocks. will have .20 over p73 pistons, type r rotating assembly, probably a gsr head but i havent decided on the head yet. wet nitrous kit, skunk2 chipped p28, hasport mounts, fully stripped interior, full cage, and a few other goodies for starters. i might ditch the b series later down the road for a stroked h22. ive got an h22a1, 2 h22a4's, and an h23 laying around im going to experiment with.

i meant poor mans type r, not type 5. just saw my typo. i fixed it. but yes, its going to be a task. i currently have about 15 hondas and probably 20 motors and trannies. i just love building cars. if i see a junk honda with potential, i buy it. sort of a problem i have. but i saw this one wedged up against a light pole in a scrap heap and had to have it. i only paid 400 for it so i think i got a good deal. the hood on it doesnt even fit. i pulled it out of the scrap pile and the holes lined up so i slapped it on. i think its from an ej or something. but im married now and its time to scale back my projects. im only going to build one at a time so im going to start parting my honda collection. stay tuned cause i have an ep3 ill be parting as soon as i finish the em2 im doing now.

im just hoping it doesnt keep getting worse. every time i look at it i find little stuff missing. it will be stripped to bare chassis and 99% of the car will be replaced, but if it isnt there to begin with im kinda in the dark.

wow...i thought my integ was a project. You must really love working on cars. That looks like a huge project. Keep us updated with pics as you go. The car has a lot of potential. if your going boost you can keep the ls head.

but i suggest saving for a hondata s300 and skipping the skunk2 chip. I have a mugen chip, it makes the car fast but it also makes the car run rich as hell. The great thing about DA's is there pretty light compared to a dc2. Good luck

i dont even think im going to register mine. im gonna build it for 99% drag. the other 1% will be illegal time on the street. i dont think it will ever pass emissions turbo'd. you got any gsr parts like a crank or anything you want to get rid of. i dont have much b series stuff.
