Haven't done a build thread before so figured I should, will be updated whenever I get the time to do so...

Back end of last month I snagged myself a cheap as chips prefacelift with the idea of fitting a Honda K series engine and making a fast road/track toy

Bodywork was rough as toast but it's a start


Wasn't a fan of the preface rear grills so binned them and painted the upper grill and crash bar black to tidy it up



Then comes the engine, luckily for me a friend of a friend was selling a JDM K24A alongside an ep3 facelift flywheel, loom and oil pump so I snagged that up



Then another mate sold me an EP3 gearbox



Which I took an angle grinder to in order to remove the counterweight and start figuring out rwd cable brackets



The parts pile is now rising as more arrives in the post, also picked up a Haltech platinum pro ECU local to me

Also if anyone knows how to upload photos in a way that doesn't make them tiny, please let me know

I use imgur.com for photos. Its a free account you set up then upload pictures (best if they are not too large) and then copy and paste the right link into your post, hit preview and you will see what is going to be posted.

The link to copy once you have uploaded your picture is the bbcode


That way the images open up in your thread.

PS I have some facelift bumper inserts for sale if you are looking for something for that gap!

Small update as I'm mainly waiting on bits.

Stuck the plates back on the car and put it through an MOT with the idea I'd get a list of stuff to do while the cars in bits.

What actually happened was it passed no bother. Happy days.

Went and picked up a hardtop the other night since they clearly aren't getting cheaper

Hard top prices are only going one way, they are a finite resource.

Have you been out in a kswapped one of these before? Will you be keeping it NA or will you go FI?

Never been out in a kswapped one but I've been in a few kswap cars

Keeping it NA for now but who knows in the future

Another small update, picked up some Motegi wheels on tegiwas bank holiday deal.

I normally shy away from budget wheels however with Motegi making wheels for Ferrari GTE/GT3 teams I thought they'd be worth a go.

Got some AD08RS stuck on them, have a feeling I may have undersized them at 205 square but they're fairly sticky and I can always put larger rears on if needs be.
