Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

OMG the website is finally working again!

Here's a pic of my new project car!
I'm still keeping the EM2 and doing a few small things here and there, but here is my new money-pit...


Coming soon to me EM2... stickers because I've lost all control of myself.

Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

LOL

It needs to have the engine rebuilt and some all around love and care to get her going again. The body is in decent shape, but everything else has about 120,000 miles on it, so it's about time to start rebuilding things from scratch.
I'm going full rally car look with this car: mud flaps, trail tires, fog lights, skid plate, roll cage, stripped interior.... oh it's gonna be great fun.

Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

Oh look a super ridiculously major update to my car! +175 HP!!!

After many agonizing months of begging Kenny to give me his civicforums.com window stickers, (I even did his dishes a couple times and paid his taxes) he finally gave in and sent me a pair.

Now I'm rockin' the best Civic forum stickers on the planet. Goes great with the white wheels I dare say.


Also relocated my plate.... the easy way.
Nerding out on anime junk like I usually do.


Also I took these pictures during the time period where Civicforums.com wasn't working for me, so I haven't posted them here yet...
Here's one photo, the rest are "attachments" to save page space, LOL

Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

Okay, how about some updates since I haven't been on this page for ages?!

Well... I haven't really done much to the car that's why.

I contemplated dying my interior black... again... but someone talked me out of it... again...

Now I have this idea rolling through my head that I want to build my car with an NA setup. Stage 2 cam, complete my exhaust system, etc. However, I don't really want to mess with the whole D16y8 manifold business. Some people say it's not worth doing unless you have Kpro which I do not really wanna pay for...

So for now, just some simple things happened.

1 - Got some quality shots from my friend on the way to and at a Honda meet.





2 - Played in the snow this winter... A LOT. I got a flat tire on oen of my stock rims so I had to go through winter on the Konigs



3 - HIT THE JACKPOT when I found this DC Ceramic 4-1 header on an EX at the junkyard. Got this thing for only $15!!!
That's like... 5% of the actual retail price.
Better still, this thing gave me a noticeable power increase! No kidding! My throttle response is better, my shifts are quicker (auto), my intake is noisier, and my exhaust note is smoother (although I preferred raspy :P)
Soooo... THAT was definitely worth the money. I'm one happy camper.




So that's really all I've accomplished lately. Besides that, my Starion now has its engine pulled and going to be rebuilt soon.

I have some plans for the EM2, but nothing major.
-I want to paint my valve cover (haven't decided a color yet, leaning toward Tein green)
-I want to install shorter springs on the front for MOAR LOW
-And I want to put some thrust bearings on top of the spring seats for no more binding sounds.

That's it :P
I'm a boring human being at the moment.

Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

Lies, my stock header looks nowhere as shitty as yours, ha!
:P

That VHT paint really cleaned things up, it looks brand spanking new.

Hey, welcome back! Great deal on the headers, can't beat finding something that at the junkyard.

Nice rolling shots too!

Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

What wheels are those? You said they were konigs but what model? Also whats your suspension setup? Did you just get lowering springs or do you have a coilover setup?

They are Konig Deceptions (powder coated white) and he has Tein Basis coilovers.

He hasn't been on in a while.

I swing by every now and then, lol
I never forget my origins

It's mostly just because I haven't done much to my car lately.
I will need to take some new pictures because I put shorter springs in my front coilovers so I finally got the stance that I wanted. On the downside, my poor little non-slammable TEIN coilovers don't like the new setup. Ride is pretty bouncy now and definitely not good for it, haha

The sacrifices I make for good looks...

Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

Nothing new really, i just forgot that I haven't added any pictures of my car since I lowered it even more.

I really love the current stance.... unfortunately my ride quality is significantly worse than before. My shocks are not liking this at all. Soon I will be raising the car up again so I can actually handle corners and not bounce around everywhere.....
I'm too cheap for new coilovers

Re: My EM2 - EX SE Build

TEIN Street Basis.
Great coilovers.... but definitely not meant for slamming.
I'm maxed out right now and the shocks are nearly hitting the bumpstops. The ride quality was much better when It was raised up another half-inch or so.
