Ok I think it's time to stated my build thread.

So last year February i got my a 2000 EX coupe, silver and it was auto, but my idea was to turbo the auto and make around 300hp out of it. While attending school UTI that is, I was doing research and started to get bored driving the stock car, so I looked into doing a few upgrades, I wanted to get a chipped p28, bigger throttle body, intake and exhaust. The p28 idea on a auto ek was too expensive and my idea of upgrading a auto car got bash on here lol. So I swapped it to 5sp. Got exhaust and intake. Chipped a ecu and ended up selling that combo so someone who really need it as I had to change my intake manifold to get my car to idle.

I time went by and I did more research I changed i few stuff and my hp goal, 1st goal was stock head, stock bore with vitara and eagles for around 300hp.
I had acquire a spare block and then a spare head so everything changed, and I as go around I got greedy and changed a few stuff also.
My aim is now around 350-400 DD and the car changed also. Now doing this in a 99 EX Sedan. Silver and auto yet again lol :bigok:

so my specs are so far:
y8 head port and polished
supertech valve springs and retainers

yea thats why i had swapped the first time and im doing do it again, this time Ill be doing a engine and tranny swap, but work is gonna take up my time :( but ill just do it one weekend :D

Do work man, Ps i love the block stand haha
yea gotta use what you got.
My today's job is to notch the block and girdle, the rods bolt clear the girdle, the rods dont clear the block though lol I cant even make half a rotation but they are too close for my liking, so for safety and piece off mind I will be notching it also.

So I limited pics right now, but the engine is now in, already broken in. Acquired CX racing intercooler kit, Delphi 850cc injectors, resistor box kit for EK. Speedfactory 4bar Map sensor, Fast-Turbo Oil line kit, Ebay cast manifold. Hoping to get this done before the end of the mount so I can post results, gonna tune it on around 16-20psi
Basically done, street tuned on 8-10psi :(, but at least I have some power
Sweet! Very nice start! Is your manifold a twin scroll design to match that of the Evo turbo?
