Recovered my corrupted Dragon Run 2009 video!!!! I thought i lost it forever, but i was digging through some backup files, and luckily i saved the project space! So i encoded it and uploaded it.
Been quite busy with work, so didn't have much time to work on the car. But i got a few upgrades...! S300 and PasswordJDM 3pt strut bar. Will eventually post some pictures.

Sorry, no huge pictures, they are TI 56ker compatible under 550px format.
I start off with a 92 gen2 automatic before i have my current 99 black integra. reason why i switched was because the other teg is getting old, and problems is getting kind a one after another... quite fustrating, not to mention i couldn't get the power when i want it with an automatic. I wanted to do a conversion before, but i figured is not worth it.
So i start looking and finally found a very good gen3 for 13k$ CAD (tax included and all the fees and sh*tz), quite good, considered the motor have about 89k km (about 60k miles), perfect body, super clean interior (like NEW!!)
When i first got her... the paint wasn't in quite good shape, because previous owner always parked it outside, so she took quite a beating by sun, rain & snow.
About 1 months after i got her, i've decided to buy some detailing/restoration product and try to save her appearence. Thanks to TI's sponsor, i got myself some Klasse package and gave some touch up on her.
There is such a huge different in power comparing to my previous automatic and my current manual teg. I just love driving an integra even more.
So the money pit begin, i start with some small thing that doesn't cost me too much and can help with keeping the teg running clean. A replica of GReddy oil catch can. I read that it doesn't do jack sh*t to daily drive teg, it only help when people take it to track. NOT TRUE, i've check my can and it does collect oil every oil change, altho only a little.
I then move on to the suspension because it is the "cheapest" section in modifying a car (comparing to modifying engine internals). So i look hard all over forums (local and international) over the internet, and finally found a deal on some JDM ITR strut bars. 140$CAD (about 100$USD) for both front and rear. They are great.
Feel like painting my caliper!
After some more saving up, i've finally order my suspension parts. Tanabe GF210 springs and KYB AGX shocks. I did not find much infomation on the GF210 in TI. But i went ahead and try it out, since my car is for street use only and i want about 1.5" drop. These springs suit me perfectly.
Review: These springs are truly amazing, the spring rate ratio of front and rear is between a regular RS (0.55) and a Type-R (0.56 up to 1), the GF210 is (0.64). You can tell there is a different in handling (less understeer) compare to stock. My teg still understeer, but certainly not as much (is easier to drive with some understeer than oversteer), i am pretty sure it will be quite perfect for street once i install a 19mm sway bar. Springs require no break-in time, just install it and you have your 1.5"f 1.4"r drop. I highly recommand these springs for poeple who only want look and slightly improve handling. Comfort wise, they are almost like stock.
Ground clearence is still good, i am clear about 2cm when my teg comes out from garage. Front mudflap is removed, because it scrapped on highway when you run over some bump or deeper curvy surface.
Thank you TI for proving all the help and guildance in the past years and...
I <3 MY TEG!
