timeline of my em2, from rice to nice :)

soo basically this is how it goes from my 18 inch rims to blowing my motor timeline, hope you like it

when i got the car i found some rims that i liked at the time but the ride in them was honestly like taking a ride down a rocky road, i felt every bump and i hated it aha



i dont know what got into me but i decided to buy underglows, big mistake. i sold them about a week later



i had these lips on but it didnt really go with the car imo then i moved on to the Aero kit from honda, but the front lip didnt have places for fogs so i moulded them in

old vs new







sooo we decide to go for a drive one night and next thing i know im picking up my new engine because my poped from my 3rd gear burnout, i knowww it was stupid of me

i picked up a D15B Jspec engine and got a bunch of goodies for it like stage two clutch and headders and such





and this is now how she sits





sooo thats it, let me know what you think

Re: timeline of my em2, from rice to nice :)

i like it, the fogs are a little weird, but i like how you're probably the only person to have done that with the 01-03 aero kit. good job

How did you manage to do a burnout in third gear was it wet or something or do you have a turbo?

Re: timeline of my em2, from rice to nice :)

Very unique, and pretty clean. SOmething about the front lip is just bugging me... I think it would look pretty sick if it was molded to the front bumper as well.

A 1.5 liter in a 2500+ pound car must be brutal at low RPM's.

Probably not any better IMO. 0.2 Liters less.. I'm pretty sure there isn't that big of a difference in our cars anyway, but it gets good gas mileage right?

Looks good bud

Re: timeline of my em2, from rice to nice :)

so i snaped my drive shaft with my d15b? possible? i didnt think so ahah

ill post pics tomorrow morning

andd when i put this motor in i added headders and a full exhaust and with vtec it feels like alot more power than my d17, all japanese engines have more power than the usdm ones thats why the gsrs and b16s can handle so much boost, they are just built better

im looking to go k20a2 next year the jspec engine, how much work am i looking at? some guy in my area told me i need a new subframe (from an rsx) so that the mounts will line up?

any help is thanked
