so this is my running log... check the last page for the latest updates

Long story short i like to rebuild my car a lot and end up taking it apart a lot due to me breaking parts if its something i havent replaced myself already.... in the end though i love my teg and always end up rebuilding it... i like to look at my integra as a learning experience that has always taught me a lot and pushed me to think in new ways.

it all started in September of 06
this was my first car, which i ended up buying because i loved the meshies on it and because of a few mods the car already had.. later id regret not buying a stock car, but ive stuck with it and ended up building a car that im happy with

heres the first picture i took of it:


bought the car with no shift knob, ripped boot, and awesome APC tails and muffler!!

currently car is in shop getting transmission work done, when leaking head gasket was realized by my mechanic

on a side note to that, my mechanic used to race an integra and is being awesome and giving me tons of parts from his old teg (racing clutch and ported and polished head) for free

will take new pics when everything is finally installed

Nice, free parts. Justs keep in mind that if your car needs work done on it, do it before buying parts. Priorities, man.

I think his goal is to have the parts installed while the rest of the work is at the shop...Just not getting why you picked a 4-1 header for an LS. When its all done give it a wash and take some pics.

nothing bad about it, its just more practical to have a 4-2-1 because of slightly better ground clearance as well as a more usable power band i believe, but don't quote me on that its just a thought

alright so its been almost a month now, but i finally got my car back

had to go to work so i didn't get to talk in detail with my mechanic about what has been done but the list includes
-header installed
-greddy evo 2 installed
-racing head (ported polished bigger valves etc.) from his old race teg was put on my car
-possibly race clutch from his race teg (not sure)

will talk in depth tomorrow to figure out exactly what i have now

but it is much louder now and very fun!!

new pics will be up tomorrow after i get a chance to clean the car
