My Little Hatch (Not 56k Friendly)

So to start it all out, I had a 1993 Civic EX Coupe, well i ended up falling asleep at the wheel at 55mph and rolled the car 5 times. Don't sleep and drive. Well needless to say the car was totaled, I came out fine. So the engine was still good, so I needed a new honda, Here's the build-up of my hatch.

Crappy cell phone pics

better turbo pics


Then, while tuning we managed to rip a hole in the diaphragm of the wastegate, overboosted and burn out the rings on cylinder 2, so a rebuild will be happening soon. Car was boosted for 2 days before the rings were done

Car is staying OD primer until i can afford the paint, the white paint in the engine bay cost $100
