tony_2018 DAmn..........so beastly to read this again. What ever happen to the integra Dave?

dfddfd2 The horns were cut off just in front of the firewall, far enough back to include the cross member bolting points. I then modified the back of the horns (reduced their size without moving the bolting points) as seen in the pics.

TurboLS Ah, yes i see now.

Judging by the looks of the cuts, it looks as though both subframe sections are forward of the firewall. Is this correct?

This makes the dream for the integra front horns slightly more difficult as the subframe bolts in behind the firewall.

Then the question becomes: Do you start with taking a chunk of the firewall as well as the front horns all in one piece?

Have a look in the very first post at pictures P1 & P2 which show the front chassis "horns", held together by the bolt on cross members, after cutting them from the Prelude chassis. This forms the "subframe" that was then welded into the Integra.

I can add free accessories to my order, but am not sure just yet which ones make sense. My options are .023", .030", or .035" for free contact tips and consumables, but I can only choose one size for free.

What would you recommend?
I use .023", which works fine, especially for thin sheet metal.

gsrbanger Just spent 5 hours reading this thread. The execution on this build was amazing. Thank you for documenting this for us to read. Truly amazing work. Hope the new owner keeps ti updated

dfddfd2 You'll need to set the frame height based on the ride height you want. Just don't go too low for the street. The lower control arm should roughly parallel to the ground at ride height.

TurboLS Dave,

Another question springs to mind... as the car was leveled using shims, would you say the front horns you welded into the back of the GSR were higher, lower, or the same height as they were in the original FWD configuration? Basically, I'm wondering if you decided to raise or lower the stock, static suspension geometry for any reason (unless that reason will reveal itself to me beyond chapter 4 of race car vehicle dynamics...).

No rush and I'm curious to hear your thoughts when you have a moment. Thanks.

TurboLS Awesome! That's what I was hoping for. I just needed someone with your experience to confirm it.

Big thanks, bud!
