Thanks for the positive comments fellow members!

Hopefully I can get the interior finished soon. My future mods will be some EDM folding mirrors, side-markers, volk wheels in gunmetal or bronze w/ 5 lug conversion, red bride seats, strut bar, sway bars and maybe a big brake kit.

You on tuned on kpro?

400whp can easily be made. I made 423whp on just 14lbs on 93 pump.

Engine swap is but the turbo kit is not. Greddy has not had their RSX Turbo Kit pass Carb Status yet. I don't show off on the street so the police usually leave me alone. I only had one jerk cop pull over for no reason after exiting a Hot Import Nights car show for no reason and had me pop my hood a few years back.

I was pulled over two more times since Hot Import Nights. I was going a little over the speed limit. When the two cops had pulled me over I was afraid they where going to ask me to pop my hood. They were both cool and gave me a warning to watch my speed because I had a good driving record.

Yes the car has kpro. I'm also changing the restrictive piping and the intercooler from the previous Greddy Kit. I agree this set up will make 400whp plus easily. I'm just sandbagging my projections.

Thanks for the positive comments everyone!

The GT35R and Tial 38mm wastegate are in and the shop is finishing up on the manifold. They said the car may be done in two weeks.

It was the tiny Mitsubishi Spec T517Z Turbo that came with the Greddy Kit.

Thanks JagerVR4! I'm currently running RC1000 injectors with a Walbro 255 fuel pump. We are going to tune around 10-12 pounds or maybe 13 pounds. The block is a bone stock K20z1 with Kpro. Planning to have a built K24 by sometime next year.

I like your civic too...you got a nice setup there. It's a cool sleeper. If the other driver don't see your intercooler they won't see what hit him...lol.

For sure I'll post some vids.

Re: Photo-shoot of the EM2...Car is back in the shop getting a GT35R upgrade.

Hi fellow members I stopped by the shop and they are almost finished with the car. So far it has around 380whp at around 10 pounds. Warren is going to finish tuning it tomorrow. He is going to turn the boost up to 12 pounds by tomorrow.

Here's a vid of the last run. Sorry the car has been in the shop for a couple of months and hasn't been washed.
