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....

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...:(

1320WhtRex,

Yes, another sweet ass KR-X!

Nice front end, thats too bad about fitment problems. :mad:

Keep them pics coming bro:up:
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:

Did you run with the 31inch belt? or did you need to get a larger one to suit the washer/pulley setup?
Not sure of the exact size of it. I know the name is Gatorback from Goodyear. I will post the part number when I get home.. Project as for now is going really slow... I started school and am going Full time plus working 40 hrs a week..:eek: Starting to get depressing.. Im waiting on my Manifold, DP and Dumptube [email protected] so I can at least get it out of here for piping...Oh well.

hey, i plan on running a hydrolic clutch pedal set-up also:up: i got a pedal assembly out of a 95 civic si (from a friend) and also a master cylinder from a 95civic si. i plan on running the hardline through the framerail thats about the only "wire tucking" i plan on doing. no ugly clutch cable resting on the valve cover and i love the pedal feel of hydro :D
Actually you dont even need the pedal assembly... You can use the pedal that you have now and reverse mount the Slave Cylinder on the inside, using the hook from the cable setup to push the CMC.... I may be working on it this weekend.. If so, ill definitely post pics....

UPDATE!!!!

Ok.. So I got my AFI Turbo manifold and extra parts a few days ago..... Im so happy with it and I am not disappointed with the results of it neither.





I installed it just to check and see how it sits in the engine bay and so far its fine.. I just have to shave a little bit off of the Brake booster around the edge of it though







Just a few Shots of my Full Race Turbo I will be using.....:silly:

I used a longer Gatorback Belt from a local auto parts store around here (Autozone). The part number is 4060390 6PK990...

I need to get a couple of miscellaneous things in the engine bay taken care of.... wiring, hoses, Clutch line and I still have to mount the Slave Cylinder inside.. I am contemplating the RSX Dash now after taking a good look at xcellr8n's crx.. I really like it, but im not sure yet.... As I have more updates to make, I will update the thread....

Thanks for the interest guys...

I have a few questions for anyone that may be able to help me out.

As I stated in my original post, I am looking for 1000cc injectors. I can get my hands on a set of 750cc locally for a reasonable price. However I am still planning to go to 2.4 block in the future and and wondering if the 750cc may not be enough for the future setup.... Any takers?????

Also, since I have little to no room in the engine bay, I am not sure how the Intercooler piping situation will work. I was giong to cut out a big square near the frame rail section to run the pipe through on the passebger side, but im not sure if I have enough room to do so. There is NO other hole or area on the passenger side that would make it work.... I only have that one hole on the driver side where the washer fluid box use to be. Do I have any options?

On the street....10....15..lbs.....

Droppedcrxsi said:
.....Yes, use the hole for the old washer location if you can.
Well I am using the old washer hole for the piping form the Turbo..... Its the piping from the TB that im concerned about.... Might have to make that hole like you guys are doing in that gunmetal CRX but on the other side......:eek:

I wish the TB was on the otherside:silly:
Maybe Jeff can fab that up if there is enough interest...I am sending my mani to him to have it ported, might be a good for the turbo setup too. I wish we had more damn room in the bay
Yeah... Me too.. I asked him about it and he couldnt really give me a specific price... I felt like I was getting the runaround.. All he was saying that it could be done, which I already knew that.

Thnx.... The AFI package was $1,400 and worth every bit of it IMO...

Don't give it up... Do it like I do it and drag it out a couple years... LoL

slowly but surely. I'm about at the same spot as you, except minus the turbo setup. All motor fun for me. Just buy shit when you got the funds...

You got another car right? The CRX isn't going anywhere, you invested way to much to let it go now. There may seem like there is still a whole lot of work to do, but just imagine how much you have already done... You are a lot closer than you were a year ago...

I can't wait to see this thing finished, one day it will all be worth it
Yeah I got another car, which im getting tired of driving too... The only reason I drive it is because im getting 34+ MPG on my 87 oct.....:silly: Im ready to trade it in and try and get a truck but I know that will definitely put a damper in my plans for the Crx so im chillin for now. .... A year ago I was I-vtec-ing all over the city with a stock swap.... This year it'll be on boost now.
I know it will be worth every second in the end..
