So I've had my TW FG since Dec last year. Santa decided to drop me off 2 bundles of joy which prompt me to let go of my Eg. The second gift being my 1st baby girl, well first child period so can't be upset about those kind of priorities.

Anywho here's a recap of my Eg and plans/Pics of the new project:
Picking her up from Tucson how I purchased

Decided to spray the full car in pearl blue



Had this in her but decided I'd do a heart transplant

With this :dance: K24A1 Which ended up getting a TSX K24A2 Head later

Out

IN

Decided I didn't like the red anymore so did this along with changing the IM(RRC), head(K24A2) and routing of a few things.



Then long story short daughter was born and wifey needed a new car so let go of it.

On to the the Fg :cool: and in the garage for the first time





And bye bye Pin Stripe/Pretty much how she looks today

When I sold the Eg I took the k24 out as I figured it would fit nicely with the heavier SI :driving: the heart will live on in my Fg, built better and stronger! So the RRC made it's way onto the z3. Along with flash pro, J35 TB, and Aem/custom Cai intake system.
Changing the Tbs: J35 on the left with IMT fitting for vacuum.

J35 Pac-maning the Oem Si one.

Flash Pro: Uploaded the Aem cold air Kal for now

Then, got some toys in the mail. Retro Solutions LLC Digital 55w HID Kit

Also bought Mini H1 projectors and relay harness from TRS

Went to work

Dinners In The Oven!

Painted the reflector with a Hi temp Blk

Projector in

Mounted back on the car and testing



Cut off

Finished product



I got these in the mail courtesy of Scott and HPT AutoSport: Supertech 87.5 Bore 12.5:1 Comp Pistons





The star of the show: out and ready to be broken down.





Decided to install my Rdx injectors and paint my intake tube to blend a bit better.

De-pinning the injector clips

And all installed on the fuel rail

Clips in place and all installed back on the manifold

Then decided since I was wrenching and bumper was off I'd paint my intake tube textured black. Was also re-doing my hids at the time

Will have alot more updates of course as I buy more parts and build the block and head:up:

Mini H1 bowl are not made for 55w set up, it can burn the bowl. I would stick with a 35w set and 4300k bulbs. BTW very nice build.
Thx!
Read about that in a few diffrent places. These bulbs are suppose to put out the same amount of heat a 55w halogen bulb does but time will tell. If it does kill the bowl I'll replace with S2k or Tsx projectors.

TSX= overrated. The mini h1 will out perform them. I would go with rx330 with clear lens. They are like s2k little brother. If you want a boss set up, I would go rx350, they out perform the tl and they are easier to mount in the 8thcivic headlight.

Was able to make a bit of progress this weekend taking apart the K:
Got it up on the stand/Removed water pump housing

Crank Bolt not an issue this time thankfully :silly:

Cover and chain off

Cam Caps and cams removed

Box O Parts: Will be posting the K20A2 Cams up for sale also

And the head is off, arp studs exposed

PPA Pistons that will be exiting the block

Will continue to break the block down and hopefully get it to the machine shop soon. Also made a decision about the cams I'm going to run in this setup then pulled the trigger......:rolleyes:





























SVM will be my cam of choice, in the 312 variety:fkya: Will post pics once they arrive!
