Here is a big update since it has been a while since i posted on here, the build is finally starting to move along and should be end of september early october when the d series is pulled and car is put away for the winter

Picked up an ep3 5 speed tranny


an ep3 rad


and the guy who i bought my rc 550cc injectors asked me if i would trade him for his id 750cc injectors that are brand new only used once





i picked up an ep3 subframe, cleaned it all up getting ready for paint



and this is the subframe all painted



also picked up a mint type s tb with all sensors



Then someone stole my mugen lip outside my girlfriends house so i had to resort to a type r one for now



Then put my stock headlights to use and black housed them and left the amber corner







Then i sold that ugly cf hood i had and got the car painted championship white





also got my kpro



picked up some oem style fogs



and yellow headlight bulbs



I am now waiting to hear back from a buddy of mine about a set of wheels, if i dont end up buying those, then i will order my mounts

Wow, page 2 FTW

Looks so much better in white...you did a great job on the headlights as well. I like how you spent the extra time to tape off the small circular driving light.

Keep the updates coming!

Thanks, the downfall on the headlights is the passenger one is fogging up So might make some new ones!




Question, Ordering some headstuds. When I am ordering them do i have to order special ones for the k24 block and k20 head? or do i just order k24 ones?
