Wassap everyone on T-I. Name is miguel most know me as migz. I'm new to the site. Been on forums all my time with the cars transitioning to vlogging but I'm still comfortable writing rather than recording lol

Well now to the good stuff
I own a 93 integra RS that in it's current state needs lots of love mainly cosmetically.
I've had it since 2009 and it has gone thru a few faces mainly engine wise and some suspension updates here and there. Its been sitting for almost a decade. Moving it around and neglecting the thought of moving on from it due my sentiment towards the car. One of my favorite chassis of all time.

Now that the time and cash flow is decent and some what fluent even during this Covid-19 BS that we all living now. I've put in some work thanks to my wife and some of my close friends. I've put together a decent K24a with an ITB setup. Hope I can make a thread that I can document and make friends here with along the way to its completion.

Still in the process of the build ill post up b pictures as to where the DA was back in its prime to getting ready to stretch the legs once more and this time for good.

Process will be slow as I'm a full time truck driver husband and a father of 2 so bare with me lol
Feel free to comment! Looking forward to this again!

Pictures on this post are some of the last pics of when I drove the car prior to 2011.
It had a b20 with b16 LSD trans competition clutch stg5 an your normal I/H/E setup for the extra humph.

The neglecting got serious and kept putting the DA in the back burner. Kept moving the car around some garages. The previous garage i had,i left it there for a few years due to work and my kids arriving by Storks. Lol

One day during 2017 I took it to my cousin's old house to keep it dry and boy was I pist at my negligence and for the owner of the garage I had it in..
Long story short there was a huge water leak thru stress cracks concrete ceiling, mattress above my car so it advanced the growth on rusty and exposed raw metal and w.e New England rusted panels became worse!

Moved it and sat for about another year and 6 months until I moved it again to my current garage that I have for the last year and where it will be until I buy my first home when ever that happens.

In between all the moving I've collected a few things .. my first K24a2 from some guy on my way back with the wife from NY to MA. That k24 needed lots of love .. had spun a bearing but nothing else wrong I kept it for a bit. Sold it and started fresh.

Is a stock Jdm K24a rbb-2 so yea real VTEC! Lol. It was just starting to become spring of 2019. My cousin had called telling me he was about to move out to another place and our cars needed to relocate. So I found a garage near by that was decently priced and the owner was a close friend from another cousin of mine. That sealed the deal lol .. the pics will show from where it was .. to where it moved.

Let's fast forward a bit. Winter hit holidays kicked in. After all the drama with the kids and wife for their Xmas gifts and celebrations, we all had amazing holidays and a great new year celebration. Onto what 2020 has brought to the table.

Decided one day to clean all the grime on the exterior of the motor, before the due date for all the other installation of parts for the build go on. Also since the donor car was an RSX-S I wanted to see if the pump was replaced but it wasn't. So this confirms it being completely stock!

Assembly happened a few weeks back on our first heat wave the northeast had. I started to install all those components of the build one Saturday at my friend's house. It was fun and tough but it got done!

A few days after assembling the motor i grab a few of the exterior components of the engine like post mount bracket and water pump housing from a K20a2 and the corresponding oil cooler setup to get on with K24a. Also dropped some of those rusted parts inside a bin filled with full CLR for drains.
