So it's been a whiel since I made a thread on the internet. With work and family life being so hectic, I have very little time to work on my personal projects cars as of late. However, I really have missed driving a Honda hotrod on the streets and have had the itch for a new project for the last coubple years. To this day the DC2 Type-R chassis is may favorite Honda of all time. And even though my track car is NHBP, there is nothing nice than a Championship White 97-98 Type-R.

While browsing the forum classifieds one day I stumbled across Carlos aka Azteggi build thread. It was a very nice high quality build that he had started. http://hondamarketplace.com/showthread.php?t=2969361











I came to learn that he had gaven up on the build and was going to part with the chassis. I figured it would be a perfect project to pick-up and finish for a weekend hotrod. In August of 2011, after a little negotiation I made the 7hr trip to phoenix to pick-up the chassis.

I ended up sitting on the chassis for about 9 months before I had a chance to take it down to my fabricator ASC. They were able to help me install my K20R conversion. While it was at the shop we installed all new wheel bearings, roll center adjusters, and custom hard brake lines.






While it was there, ASC modified an Rcrew muffler with a custom segmented turn down. They also did some trick stainless steel 3"in piping.










They also whipped out a trick 3.5"in Custom CAI intake

Since it is a dedicated street car, I picked up a clean set of Recaro SRD's with Vision low position one touch sliders. Also scored ona mint set of rear seats
Sorry for the shitty cell phone picture


Also picked up a Stoptech Big Brake kit. This is the same brake kit I use on the track car, which I have had good results with



I then moved the car over to my friend's shop Cartune, in San Diego where we finished the wiring, alignment, and misc prep work.

Found some guy selling them on the ITR forums brand new in the bag.
ICB Motorsport also carries them, but they are not listed on the website

Good build, really like the simple/clean look of the car.

Question, where did you buy your fender liners from?

Beautiful car and clean swap, makes me wish my old ITR was clean enough to swap. Anymore pics of the catch can set-up? Especially from the PCV/intake manifold?
