So far this is the only suspension upgrade to my car


Its a 23mm swaybar and aluminum subframe brace I got from ebay. Identical to the on Matt (Echelon) has on his car. It really made a difference

Some pics of the recent starter replacement:


As of today, this is as far as my car has gone. It is a completely stock 1999 GS. Other than the swaybar I only have a Pioneer headunit, LoCustoms antenna and a Skunk2 weighted shift knob. The rest of the car is completely OEM. Here we go :driving:

I've got a p8r head sitting in my garage. Its got a stuck intake valve so I'm planning on taking it to a machine shop sometime next week. I'm supposed to be buying a b20z this weekend as well. Actually I think it's Mutt's old motor.

That said, I've been reading up a lot on b20 builds and there aren't a lot of high compression non vtecs that have extensive work logs. I'm still learning a lot, no concrete plans as far as internals yet.

Yeah, I've heard good things about b20 tegs. I want to get it (the head) torn down ASAP and see if it's just a stuck valve. Whatever it is I may just upgrade the valvetrain to supertech or ferrera.

So tonight I picked up dis!


Ooooh High compression!

Comes with a new t-belt and headgasket thats still in warranty. Still on the fence about this but I haven't decided what direction im going yet.


Ehh just an LS head, but it does look likes its in good condition

LS cams and gears, and a purplish/black VC, which I did not get a picture of.
Sorry about the ****ty pictures everyone, my phone camera is all I have.

I will probably start tearing apart the engine tomorrow night. This is a great excuse to search for a stand on craigslist...

that VC was the mess up when my good VC was getting done. the odd spots are oily spots that the PC didnt stick to.

I did some work to the b20 this weekend. Here are the pics of the teardown:
Degreasing



Ooof. Gross. No way this thing is going to stay in my room looking like this.

Degreaser doing its thing.

aaaand we're clean(er)! Good enough for now.

My little impact always surprises me. I almost forgot about the crank pulley bolt. It struggled for half a second and popped it right off.

And I caught the crank pulley key like a BAUSS.

Oil pan off

Oil pickup and pump removed.

Time for the pistons!

This was #4, the worst so far.

All out!

And I realized I never showed the P8R. Its got a stuck valve which will be fixed in the next few weeks.





I plan on taking the crank out this week and looking at the bearings a little closer. Just ran out of time today due to plans. More pics to come though!
