It's an old picture, but this is mostly how my integra currently sits:
A few more issues with paint have come around over the years on the front and year bumper, not really sure what I want to do regarding that. I may have a crack at fixing those issues myself, it wouldn't be as good as a real repaint, but it would look better and I could learn something during the process. I can remove the bumpers and paint them in my garage.
Now, the engine, currently as it sits it is a 98' Spec JDM ITR with 60k-ish miles on it. It runs pretty well but on full throttle pulls I smell oil. It may need a new PCV valve and possibly rear main seal, need to run a compression test just to check health, last time I check was 2012 and the numbers looked great back then. It's running my own tune on moates demon currently, 255 pump, Apexi WS2, ITR trans and 4-1 header.
In the past it was LS-Turbo, now, I'm kinda wanting to turbo it again. My other car is a 17' GTI with a Stratified pro-tune in-progress with a target goal of 325whp/390/wtq. So I do have that to satisfy my turbo-itch. While the stock ITR engine is loads of fun, I'm split on what I should do, part of me wants to hear the whoosh of a turbo under its hood again. The ITR engine would need lower comp pistons and injectors to reach 400whp and maybe cams. Trans would need a clutch upgrade (maybe? current might hold...not sure) and fresh synchros would be nice, though none are in terrible shape.
Would I be committing a sin turboing an ITR engine though? Would it be better to sell the ITR and build up a GSR? Since it was turboed before it already has all the support equipment like a wideband O2 and I've got a full 3" exhaust sitting in the basement still. Another part of me doesn't want to spend much more on the car and leave it as-is...maybe just fix it up 100%, get it dyno tuned (230whp maybe?), and perhaps do some weight reduction.
Help me lol
