The narrative that no one cares about:


This build will be started due to the failure of a rod bearing, motor was still salvageable, wish I could say the same for the crank.
Will not be doing a crazy build or nun like that, simple and clean, no need to blow 10k.
So with that being said subscribe, check back frequently and feel free to give input, and/or criticism. Sit back and enjoy my work.

Soon after the teardown I made my decision to go through with the build, brainstormed with my tuner on what setup would suit my goal in power level and started searching for the parts I needed. Came across a deal I couldnt refuse!!

JE 86.5mm pistons 10:5:1 compression ratio
JE wristpins
Eagle H-beam rods ARP rodbolts
ACL STD thrust washers

Not too long ago a pretty important package made its way to my hands, after being lost for 48 hours at the local UPS facility after a 5 day journey from its origin.
More power calls for heavier duty clutch system.









Nice upgrade from my previous CompClutch stage 4 system :giggity:

Shortly after I got in contact with Ryan from AFH and he had in stock 2 GE turbo manifolds, no need for the 3-4 month wait from manufacturer. What a great opportunity to upgrade the old RBC and upgrade, not to mention he gave me a killer deal on it.
Great customer service I received from AutoFair Honda and he will now be supplying me with a bunch of parts ima need for the build, highly recommend him for any needs no matter how small nor big the order might be, he got it!!
Went ahead and threw on my fuel rail and Aeromotive A1000 fuel pressure regulator, getting ready for that fuel system. Will need new injectors and throttle body soon.

Looks good! I'll be building my block, 1-2 sc and a return system on my ep. I'm the guy that bought the Evo wheels from you btw. Do you have widened front fenders or something? Or is that just a reflection?

O hey man wow. How the ep coming along?

No these are the OEM fenders with a 15mm spacer at the bottom mounting point.

So what size rim are you running up front? Could you elaborate more on what you used and how you did it? Don't want to get your thread off topic so pm if you want. I've been looking for a solution for a wider rim and meaty tire. And the ep is great. Just now in the process of buying a block to build.

Up front I have a 17x8+20 with a 245/40/17 tire.

It's simple. Pull sideskirt off. Remove lower mounting bolt of the fender, slip in a spacer and get a longer bolt to thread in place. Install sideskirt back on. I have absolutely 0 rubbing issues up front and only running -2.1 degree of camber.

What's your guess on running a 245 40 17x9+18? A little too much? Gonna definitely be following this. Gonna run a return setup first thing on my ep when I get back stateside.
