So far my total invested is a little more than $18,104... (Oil, Coolant, telfon tape and minute miscellaneous things not calculated)

I will update the thread and pics as the parts come in... Comments and suggestions (Suspension, exhaust, IC piping, radiator, wheels, etc...) welcome.



I decided to go with the 3 Pulley setup so that way I can save from cutting out this on the hood, plus it looks alot cleaner.. notice the clearance with the 3 washers on each bolt and BDL Industries Alt Pulley...:up:


I also upgraded to the 99-00 Brake Booster for better braking.. I felt I might as well since I have Integra suspension all the way around..



I am going to try to do this one as clean as possible regarding the wires...Im trying out this wire tuck idea I guess..



I was going to use this front end but since the sensors on the top of the throttle body and the Vacuum port for the Brake booster hose sits too high, I have to seek an alternative route for the front end..There is NO WAY that any stock OEM or JDM hood will fit this swap with an RBC manifold..

See that 2.4 Block over there on the left?... Its just waiting for my Tax Return I think I will build it up... This Stock setup is pretty much just to test the limits of it on more of a conservative level for Daily driving and track. I'm shooting for 450+hp on stock internals on Race gas...Thanks Everyone....

Hell yeah, I am glad someone is going this route. I was looking at the AFI kit too, cant wait to see more on this. You said the front end wasnt going to work because of the brake booster hose? Shoot me a pm if you want to get rid of it...:D

Not so much the hose for it, but the actual tube that sticks out of the RBC manifold for this hose. I already accidentaly threw out the hose anyway...:(

Wow man I didnt know you have a full race crx haha. Looks like things are coming together quite well. I cant wait till my stuff comes in. I should be getting my stuff in on the beginning of the new year when I get back in town. And when I do ill have to throw together a little build thread too...of my deer beaten eg since I hit another deer the other day. Thats 2 in a month. So once this car gets boosted I doubht it will see night time or deer season driving. :(

Yeah... Tell me about it... I still want to use it but I dont want to have to Cut up the hood section.. Rather just do that with an OEM hood and make the middle custom... It's still up in the air though... I did get my Slave Cylinder today (Thanks bigcalidave) so I now I will need to get a Civic or Integra CMC and install it. I will take pics of this as well..

Very nice. I hope you get your IM situation straightened out. The xcessive motorsports one might do the trick for you. From the looks of things I think it will fit. I'm gonna call them for dimensions.
Thanks.... I really would like to have the Throttle body on the Other side though, which makes the Intercooler piping situation much easier.... Let me know when you get the specs of this IM.... maybe I might switch over.. It's gonna be pain to get this one out though. :eek:

I cant see the xcessive intake manifold pics on here, but the PeakBoost fit has a similar design from what I can gather. Looks like all they did was cut the TB off and weld the hole shut, then weld the TB to the bottom. The pics are in the Fit section
