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

So I just finished replacing my tranny, Now got a non-vtec box in..also think I may be getting out of the game, just posted my car for sale. Will update with more later.
Been a while since ive made any updates, miss my y8 tranny but car is running and taking to me work which is important.
Ordered a few stuff for it, camber correction kit from whiteline for the rear, energy suspension sway bar end links, new axles both sides.
Planning to re-install my ac as the time is getting extremely hot.
Changed my oil this weekend, running castrol 10w-60, changed my power steering belt, no more squealing and wipers no more streaks lol.
And a nice engine bay pic for you guys.

Oh fyi, I sold my back up motor. I built it using your old rods, car made 300hp and has been together for 10,000 miles so far!
nice. good to know. Yea ill have fun with this. going to do intake, exhaust and tune. should be around 460hp and about 490tq when im done.
Nice not bad, there kind slow in stock form.
well in stock mine produces 320hp and 332tq and in overboost mode i get 370tq. With a 7 speed dct.
this is a great thread, I'll be coming here often to compare my rebuild. I'm going for Vitara pistons and cast manifold as well. What a beast, does the Rocker cover take alot to keep clean?
