looks like ill be the first to post in here lol
« on: May 12, 2013, 11:29:03 pm »
my build, and first and for most, i miss you Jermaine and Big Dare!

hello to all, my name is Christoph er and this is my build, a lot of time and effort went into this car.
its a 1998 integra gsr, and I cant thank the biggest influence s  Erinn, the love of my life, my main supporter and has helped me through it all!!  Bobby, one of the nicest and knowledge able people i know!  James, for building my motor and teaching me things, and being very helpful and straight forward! and  Scotty, for getting her tuned and is still willing to help me with things and I cant forget German, put my car up in his garage so she wouldn't be in the weather and helped me pull and install my motor


the beginning
this is the first day I got her, a HOT mess that needed to be tackled!





after i got her, i started thinking of ideas on what i wanted my project to be. and honestly, my first vision and how the car is now are two different things lol

but starting the car, I got a great deal on a b20v swap, (b16) head. type r intake manifold and throttle body, and some bolt ons



i was so happy to have her running, and i had some cash left over and decided i wanted to get something ive always wanted, a jdm front end, and thanks to Bobby for helping me install and put the front end on








i was beyond happy, and i found my old wheels and decided to throw them on



after that, I started cleaning the crap out of the interior because it smelled like weed and had weed all through out the car lol,  and also taking the crappy window tent off!


and i decided i didnt like my wheels and traded them for some stock wheels, the good ole fashioned LS meshies, and dont regret a thing!




well, a few months pass and something TERRIBLE happened!, i let my best friend Stephen Burke drive her, and BAM! spun a bearing.. ..... lol

a lot of sadness and sulking took over, and I didnt know what to do!, than I got a great idea to get someone to do a stock rebuild for me! and i got to talking to James emmino and to rebuild what was messed up, would be around the same to do a mild build!
and at that time, i got hungry, i wanted power. i told him what do i need to make 200, which is perfect for my daily! and we worked things out, talked it over and started the build

he took the motor apart and noticed a number of messed up things! like a washer in the timing case, everyting over torqued, rod bolts rounded off!

it was a ticking time bomb!
but now the motor is together, we hit the dyno! she made 192 / 138 tq, ls tranny and maxed out the injectors!


i was upset and picked up some 310 injectors, which i was told were 440's and delivered 310's instead, i wasn't to upset because he said if they maxed out he would refund me 100%

at this time i decide to get better wheels, and an asr neo-chrome subframe brace!



looks a million times better in my opinion!


now im at mainstrea m getting ready for her to be tuned



after the new injectors, and pump, we hit the dyno again! and this is where she is now!, im losing power due to having a terrible alignment, causing  drag because the wheels were in the direction of this

 lol /   \  lol.




a little info on the build, b20 block, 84mm pistons, skunk 2 pro 1 cams, and skunk 2 cam gears, 310 rc injectors, upgraded the valve springs and retainers, 255 walbro pump,
 


i was so happy! but while the motor was being put together, I got antsy, i NEEDED to work on the car! so i started picking up things here and there!

found some awesome interior parts!
found a set of usdm itr rear seats for a really good price

 

a full NRG quick release set up off a contest I won off facebook lol!


and some bride low max seats, and some takatas! .......an d some led's





MY NUMBER 1 PARTNER IN CRIME!


dont worry about the tag, the vehicle isnt there lol





now i got my interior pretty, i needed to get some suspensio n parts!
so I got this! buddy club p1's, function 7 lower control arms


stoped being lazy and finished my suspensio n setup


now i have everythin g on, and getting ready for an alignment, and the machine is old and hooks up to the tire, so i had to get the fenders off lol



now im sitting pretty and aligned!!
she is really dirty from pollen and my co-workers were checking out my rear end lol



well now,  I decided to sell my type r intake manifold and throttle body after i get my new parts in, which shipped out to day!



after my install
skunk2 ultra street intake manifold and 70mm throttle body



after I did the motor, interior and suspensio n, i can start on my body work! so i purchased a new trunk
carbon fiber,



retro fitted a skunk 2 cam seal into make a rear wiper delete lol, needs to be cleaned up around the edges!


and cleaned the bay up some! and represent ing downstar! lol

and thats where I am now :]

and im definitel y open to construct ive criticism
Thank You, Christoph er
