It's about time I started a thread for this car. Many of you on here know me but for those of you that don't, here's a little background. I started out doing my first k swap at the very end of 2007. I swapped the following setup into my 1994 Honda Civic EX Coupe:
-k24a1 bottom end
-k20a2 head
-k20a2 6 speed trans
-Competition Clutch Iron Man sprung 6 puck
-Hasport Swap header
-Old school Karcepts CAI
-Revo short shifter box
Etc.....



To see that car in action go here http://www.k20a.org/forum/showthread.php?t=54069
and here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5KOofmrRzU&feature=youtube_gdata_player

From there I tried several different power adders such as nitrous and superchargers. The m62 blower (used in the Jackson Racing and Comptech kits) are ok if on a budget or not looking to make much power. *But there are MUCH better options available. *One such option is the Rotrex super charger :)*



I ended up parking the coupe and did an EG build for a very short time, here's a few pics







Coming in the garage by supercharged mini-me power for the last time...... Not to worry the coupe is looking out and will show the hatch the way of the K lol



















Anyways...... On with more about this new build....

The car is a 2001 ITR that was originally Nighthawk Black Pearl. *At some point it was painted what I believe is a Lexus peal white paint. *Here is the first night I got her. *




Here's a view of what the engine bay looked like when I received heR


GOAL: Embrace "The Spirit of the R" and improve upon that

This car will be built to go fast and be driven hard. *You will most likely NOT see any parts that don't serve a functional purpose for the previously mentioned goal of all out performance (no stupid "stanced out" wheels, etc). *There are some aspects of the build that I am going to begin with more basic/mild parts so I can feel the difference in upgrades and learn as I go. *In the end I plan on having one of the most beastly ITR's ever built.

This car WILL be making 400-600whp and WILL be driven hard. *

Re: My ITR build: The Ultimate DC2 Integra Type R

Has it had other front end work other than the jdm core support? ITR's didnt have that hole on the passenger side piece in front of the shock tower.

Here's how it should look...

Good eye! Yes it had a complete USDM front end replacement and then the JDM core support only installed
