January 2012
I always wanted a white dc2 with the jdm front and was in the market at that time. My budget was 7-8K I then started noticing Type Rs for 10-13k. I was like why not for a few more Gz. That's when I decided to get an R.

Saw one 2 hours away and went to check it out on February 2012. It was love at first sight.


So I made a deposit and came back on March 6 2012. She was ready to come home.


I kept heR in storage temporary since I didn't have a garage at the time.


First things first I had a Viper GPS installed professionally with tons of extras.

Next ordered a set of CCW



Bought some status seats but later sold it.


Here I went to jersey for WekEast.




Then after WekEast I decided to go K ;)

Tear down began November 2012


Me being goofy


My first purchase for this K project was an RBC manifold. Started shaving and cutting the bridges.




I had Alex @ KN2EK weld and clean up the map sensor holes and whatever needed to have a clean RBC. It turned out better than what I expected.



Few months later I found my K20A Type R motor and DC5 R Trans


Started to do a mild shave on the bay.



Finally painted fresh NHO!



Started to install the fuel lines.


Ordered my Circuit Hero custom 3.5" intake


I bought a brand new manual rack because looping it is kinda out of place. Also had my subframe, Circuit Hero intake and RBC powder coated chromozone.



Custom exhaust done by ASC speed metal with the help from Gil


Wire-Worx came through with this work of art harness with K-swap conversion harness.


Painted my valve cover



Motor finally in with the aid of Hasport mounts.



Shaved my water pump housing. Also cleaned up my alternator and bolt boys hardware.



Wire-Worx in play.


K-pro PRC ecu


Relocated my battery by TSR


Griffin radiator. Alex is welding in a few AN bungs and brackets ;) thanks Bro!




Got parts still laying around



Protecting my K-tuned Race Spec cables



This is where I stand at the moment.



This view is just pure sex


Waiting on a few items and will wrap it up and hope to get it started by November.

It was hated in ITR expo getting rid of the Original B18C5. I atleast kept the spirit of the R with the K20A

Mine is not as detailed as your build Peter. I might not post but I do read a lot of the builds here. Thanks for the kind words. Maybe I'll be motivated to finish it sooner.

Doing some late night wire tuck on the passenger side. It was a mess in the beginning.




Loomed



I just got to extend the fan plug. Will wait for my radiator to arrive.

Also painted the booster. I couldn't put my master cylinder tonight. I need my friend to tighten the bulk head on the firewall. I need an extra hand
