First time honda Engine Build edit:pICS!!

Right now im just doing my pricing to start buying parts after christmas ... if anyone can post places to get teh best deals/prices on parts let me know in the thread ill post pics as i go along.

engine D16y8

Parts Needed
Crower STG 3 CAM
skunk 2 adjustable cam gear
Crower TI Retainers and Springs
P29 pistons with race barring(sp) and all the seals and crap
Home made ITBS still not sure on what throttle boddy to use for a d16y8 for the best match up. most likely wanting to use a honda one because of ease of wireing compadability.
Ported head for the cam
aluminum rad
Tuning with eighter crome or hondata s300 not sure what is better to use

non engine parts needed
i got a good deal on full skunk 2 pro track coilovers
polyurithane motor mounts
wheel spacers for nicer stance

Parts already installed
already have a custom header on the car.
full 2.5" exhaust with high flow cat and 3"twin loop muffler
2.5" E-cutout
short shifter
Fidanza light weight flywheel
Bully Ottawa Clutch
shitty coilovers that are getting replaced
CF Hood which is hard to get for this car

Check the vendors forum (not sure if you can see it until you hit 65 posts or not).

nice EL! ive always liked the front end on them!

but in terms of your parts search id recommend doing a search for any canadian shops that way you save on the exchange rate (which sucks) and any BS customs charges that you will have to pay.

If you are forced to buy out of the US try to ask the seller to ship with a company other than UPS, as they are known to rape you on anything you buy thats not from canada.....i know cause i have been a victim numerous times :no:
