this is dedicated to my cars timeline from day one until now and the swap that i plan to do. We all know its income tax season is here and 2011 is the year of the RAT maybe not but any this year i am going to tackle something I have dreampt of since I first got into the Honda game and that's a 98 B18C JDM TYPE R SWAP for my 2000 Integra GSR. So with this income tax coming up im going to buy the B18C Spec R from Steve at Hmotorsonline. I wont be stopping there though i also would like to upgrade a lot of other parts. I will go into more details of the swap once i get this timeline out of the way.
Ok team integra/world i have had my GSR for almost 3 years now and the first 2 years were very slow in terms of upgrades etc. In the summer of 2010 I finally went full time at my job!!! We all know what that meant for me and of course the BLACURA!! I had patiently waited for years to upgrade the suspension wheels and all that other jazz... Im going to take you through my cars Time line aka 2008-PRESENT DAY. Please note the very first picture of my car isnt available to me right now so im going to post the oldest one that i have access to right now.

OK people here is my 2000 Acura Integra GSR i picked MoNA ( LIL NAME I GAVE HER ) up with 52,000 on the clock!! I paid a pretty penny for her but I originally went to buy an 06 RSX TYPE S and when my salesman walked me into the garage to go get the car so we could go for a test drive I saw my baby in all her glory unmolested! It took my brain about 30 seconds to process what i was looking at and that was all she wrote!!! My salesman was so pissed and frustrated that he was becoming disrespectful so I got a new salesman lol and he was happy to sell me the car haha... So here she is as stock as it was the day i got it..

yes it is exactly what you think it is BRAND NEW BLADES from Show Case Honda Dealership in Arizona.. Some people say its outrageous but its a small price to pay for perfection. you wont find used blades in this condition. youll see the finished product shortly

Ok now that my time line is done i can elaborate on plans for 2011 or for the first half at least. Okay for anyone thinking that i rebuilt my gsr to JDM ITR SPEC thats wrong. The rebuild on page 1 was an overhaul done to just about stock specs minus the .20 overbore. Unfortunately I am bored as hell with this motor and its pissing me off so with income tax season right around the corner its time to bust the bank and I going to purchase the JDM ITR SWAP ( B18C ). I'm not stopping there though im getting a new mishimoto radiator new hoses a new clutch and it goes on and on and on.. I get my OT check today so ill be ordering the MISHIMOTO ALUMINUM radiator soon. I will post pics when it comes in.. I hope everyone likes what I have done so far

This car is amazing! I like that you patiently wait for the parts you want, unlike almost everyone else who just goes out and buys parts just to have them. Mad respect for you and I can't wait to see the C5 swap! Are you keeping your trans or going ITR also?
