So a little update, got some more wheels and my black coupe is almost ready to go out for a little more fabrication. I'll try and get some pictures of the cage for you guys.

New setup consisits of:
- S15 SR20DET with S14 5 speed transmission
- Power Enterprise 1420 Turbo
- Nismo 550cc injectors
- Tomei poncams 264/264
- Exedy Hypersingle
- Apexi PowerFC D-Jetro with Oled commander

This should put me right around 310-320whp with 18psi of boost at 2600RPM. Chassis already has a NASA spec cage and is going for tubs and some other bits, hoping to get this thing right around 2,550lbs when all said and done.






Got some more bits in off of Yahoo Japan!


HKS Type R oil cooler - this thing is huge!


And those of you who are heading out to the AZ meet today you'll see my good friend Matt, he owns a pretty rad S14...


I'm thinking about picking up another coupe for a daily and doing a NA VE build, kinda getting sick of my civic. We'll see what happens...

Just thinking about how much money you spend makes me a little nauseous.

Nice stuff though for sure.

^ so does that mean we are going to see you at NASA events? Planning to get your NASA Comp license and run races with us?
We'll see how the car ends up getting setup, I'm hoping to get out to atleast a couple HDPE events this year.

Someone got their tax return already
That reminds me I haven't even gotten my W2's yet...

Actually I don't spend any of my 'regular' income, I build my cars on cash that I make on parting other cars. This keeps my bank account happy and keeps me from getting into any sort debt.

It's the whole reason why I'm considering going back to an older car for a daily, I would love to buy something new but because I'm still young insurance bends me over. I'm paying almost 1,800 a year for full coverage on my 05 civic while my 240s have been about 400 for the same coverage.

I wanted to get another Honda as a daily, but the insurance on them is rediculous.

....because HONDA

..get something OTHER than a HondaCar and you'll be fine (no an EVO won't be any better of course)

Look up cost on a 2005 Ford Taurus in comparison for an example just for fun (betcha its WAAAAY cheaper than $1800 a year)

Holy crap... I understand why you got rid of that so fast.
