Ok. So I went to RedZone to get my NEW turbo setup installed (Spoolin' Performance log manifold, 2.5" downpipe, dump tube).

We ran into a little trouble getting my old Turbonetics Delta wastegate on. So I had to buy a new one. So I ended up getting a TiAL .6 bar wastegate.

Sorry for the crappy pictures, this is from my phone.


[6.15.09]
Cleaned the rims

Pretty close! I decided not to notch the girdle.


[1.4.10]
Decided to work on a little bit of the suspension.
Still ordering motor parts. But just small stuff.

Godspeed SS coilovers (they look really good btw.) and Blox LCAs.


[1.14.10]
I figured since I have their coilover setup, why not get more suspension stuff from them.

[2.8.10]

I traded the old Rota MSRs for some clean white Rota Slipstreams.



I also picked up a fresh d16z6 head from the machine shop.
Rebuilt to OEM spec from APM in Morgan Hill




Just got my brand new Gates water pump today!! :greenmunch)


[2.10.10]
I picked up a 95 Civic LX 4 door arm rest.
It looked like this when I first got it:


Ugly, and tan/brown!

Decided to use ultra flat black with Fusion for plastic (I should have used flat black or semi-gloss but w/e)
End result:


[2.16.10]
I went to Home Depot the other day and grabbed four 2" knock out plugs and sprayed them flat black. They fit perfect where the center caps USED to be.

I also grabbed some black lug nuts from ebay.
